The Follow Your Bliss Makealong "officially" starts on Monday, July 18.
BUT, since I have some things to show you and I've left you hanging for a bit, I thought I'd start you off on the adventure a little early. Besides, this part might take you the most time!
The Makealong is open to any and all who would like to participate - in any way you would like to!
I will reveal the inspiration quote and the beginning of my first project on Monday.
I have several options in mind, plus you're welcome to go your own way completely.
I will host blog posts and links and such from July 18 to September 18.
There is a flickr pool to post photos in to share, ask advice and showcase your makings.
There will be blog posts along the way with linkups too.
AND I'm starting the blog roll TODAY in my sidebar.
If you are making along with me, please feel free to leave me a comment or email with your main blog address. It would be helpful to label any of your makealong posts with "FYB makealong" so people who visit can search your blog for these posts and leave comments!
Your first assignment is to
Go through your stash, sewing room, basement, attic, etc. to find embellishments like beads, lace, trim, ric rac, fabric, photos, that you have been keeping and not making anything with.
You don't need to use ALL of these things, but have them close by in case you are inspired to use them.
I'm using lots of little things that I've been finding as I look through my sewing space nooks.
The photos throughout this post are of some of my treasures I have uncovered so far.
On Monday I will reveal my inspiration quote and set you off on your second assignment -
Explore Some Techniques!
p.s. while the main goal of the makealong is TO MAKE, if you would like to host a treasure giveaway or have a technique tutorial you'd like to blog for the makealong crew, send me an email at SarahVee @ sewJOYcreations.com
and thanks for sharing!
