Everything but the Kitchen Sink & It's Sew Basic Series

Hey Everyone!

I'm so excited! I have a fun announcement for you guys great blog friend, Tina, from Twinkle Toes
Twinkle Toes The Blog
agreed to do a sewing series with me! It's for beginner-beginner sewers. People who may look at sewing machines with fear and loathing, but secretly want to know how to master them. People who have started a sewing project just to get stumped after the bobbin (that your mom loaded for you), ran out of thread and you didn't know how to load it again. For people who want to try but just can't find the time or the basic instruction. Well, blog-friends (still working on what to call you lovelies!), look no further! We are inviting you to join Tina and I on a sewing adventure!


We will begin the sewing process with some basic sewing machine instruction and a PILLOW CASE project! So, grab your supplies:
  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • iron
  • sewing scissors
  • SEAM RIPPER - heh 
  • 3/4 yard of one print 
  • 1/2 yard of a coordinating print 
And join us each Thursday for some instruction and to see our progress. This will be a 3 WEEK PROJECT and at the end of the series we'll host a link party where people can link up their finished pillow's the fun part! We'll have a drawing and the winner will receive:

$50 to CSN!

I know, right? Awesome!

So, spread the word! The fun starts next Thursday! 

And's time for Everything but the Kitchen Sink!
