It’s been a busy month. The final countdown to ‘Sew a Softie this July’ has begun.
Sew a Softie has received coverage in the June issues of the Australian magazines Homespun and Handmade, in the US magazine Creative Machine Embroidery and in the Italian magazine Casa Creativa. So the word is out.
Come this July 1st, the first softie tutorial will be posted and then for the next 31 days, a different blogger will post their own softie tutorial on their blog or youtube channel. So there are no excuses for not sewing a softie…and if you don’t know how to join in, you can read the ‘Weekend Notes’ article which explains everything HERE.
Last week I was interviewed by Shevonne Hunt on Kinderling radio…that was really interesting to do even though I was just a little nervous.
Anyway, get out your fabric or felt, needle and threads and of course, that special softie ingredient stuffing, and get ready for an exciting creative month ahead…and don’t forget to post your softie creations on instagram with the tag #sewasoftie to be in the running for our giveaway prizes.
Wow Trixie, how exciting. I knew about Homespun magazine but I didn’t know about the other’s – lots of amazing coverage for it this year =)
I know Mignon!! And two English magazines Simply Sewing and Love Patchwork are joining in with tutorials. It’s very exciting and it just grew so much in a year 🙂
