May: Summer Whites

Summer Whites

We've had some random snow storms in Ohio this month, but yesterday is was 85 degrees and 80 the day before. I HAD TO TURN ON THE AC LAST NIGHT. It got me thinking I need to start working on the things I want to be wearing this summer.

(Now I know, I've still got a bag to make for this month...Edited to add- IT'S DONE!)

For May's #letssewthistogether, we're sewing summer foundation pieces. Tops and bottoms in white that will pair with those other bright and bold pieces in our summer wardrobes. A white tee. A white button up/down. White cropped pants. A classy white jean jacket. Pull the whites from your fabric library and Let's Sew Them Together!

And bonus!! LA Finch Fabrics is sponsoring May's sewing session! Josie has a 6 yard case of knits we'll be giving away to a participant. (International sewers welcome, shipping charges due.)

You can use any fabric you've got that's mostly white to sew with us, but we're giving bonus points for using Finch-sourced materials and there will be a bonus prize ($10 UpCraft Club credit) for one random participant. 

So pull out all your white (or mostly white) fabric. If you don't have something in your stash already, show our sponsor some love and check Finch's stock first-

Sew it together. Share it. Win some Finch.

We look forward to sewing together with you.


Jen and I both wrote inspiration posts! Find them here and here.

Mid March-April: Bags

We sewed bags, man! 

Check out what we all sewed together-

Sarah (@rocketsarah) made a delicious Traverse bag.

Sarah's full blog post is here and, holy smokes, it's lovely!

Lauren (@rosegardenln) pieced all the colors of her garden into this Santorini tote.

A sweet Double Zip Pouch came off Brianne (@bricarfty)'s machine.

And Jen (@makerheart) made a Double Zip Pouch too.

(Clearly it's a must have pattern. I was lucky to get in on testing it!)

...as well as a matching drool-worthy Poolside Tote!

I think I was the last one to finish. The blog post for my Caravan Tote is here

February-Mid March: Sewist's Choice Finch Picks

We had a terribly hard time narrowing down the options for this month. When we put it to a vote it ended essentially in a tie, so we left it to sewer's choice of any of these from La Finch Fabrics.

February is a few days shorter than the rest (and maybe I got distracted by #nofearnewjeans month), so we extended this session through mid-March.

This is the only one still be available-

 I had this fabric on hand before we started and it became a cozy Halifax with exaggerated cowl/funnel.
