merrily we sew along with improv sewing: challenge #3 — nesting boxes
So the Merrily We Sew Along challenge is merrily rolling along…and challenge number 3, in case you haven’t heard, is to stitch up some nesting boxes. We just finished these this morning. Destined for a V-Day gift….not saying for whom, in order to avoid spoilerdom.But they’re kinda sweet, right?
Want to make some? The how-tos are on page 126 of the Improv Sewing book…and if you don’t have yours yet, you could go over here to order it, and have this project and 100 (one hundred!!) others in your stitchy little hands.
Why bother? Well, this is is one of those fast and incredibly satisfying projects that make you feel great. PLUS you end up with a sweet set of organizers for your jewelry, your desk, your mom or your sis’s stuff…PLUS you can win prizes:
The winner of the merrily we sew along episode three challenge will receive a Folk Art Aurifil 12wt wool 12 spool large collection case, as well as a package of these sewing books from Storey Publishing: One-Yard Wonders Fabric by Fabric, Mend It Better, Grow Your Handmade Business, and Sew Up a Home Makeover (plus an extra copy of Improv Sewing for a friend).
So get improv-ing… we can’t wait to see what you stitch up! just upload a picture of your canvas nesting boxes to the merrily we sew along flickr group by february 28 to be entered to win!!
but before you start stitching, a bit more inspiration to share. i’m excited to announce that this month’s fabulous guest poster in our merrily we sew along series is…
