February 2011 ~ 12 Month Sewing Challenge!

posted in: Sewing | 6

On to month number 2 of the 12 Month Sewing Challenge! You can either just follow along or to participate simply upload pictures of your finished projects to the  Everything Your Mama Made & More! 12 Months of Sewing Flickr Group. You are more then weclome to post pictures after the end of the month, but to qualify for a chance to win all entries must be uploaded to Flickr by the 1st day of the next month… in this case MAR 1ST 2011.  At the end of each months challenge I will have a group of ladies pick out a top ten of their favorites (or post all the entries if 10 or less) that I will post here and then I will let my blog readers vote for their favorite & the winner!  If you have a blog of your own that you shared the details of your project on make sure to include the direct link to the post in the comment on your flickr photo so people can check it out. YOU MAY ENTER MORE THEN ONE ITEM.


So with Valentines Day approaching love is on the mind, so for February’s challenge all you have to do is simply make something for SOMEONE YOU LOVE .  It can be a spouse, child, family member, friend, pet, co-worker… anyone you care about!!!  Again this is a very general theme.  It does NOT have to be Valentines or heart themed (though it may) & I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.

PRIZE~~~ 1 yard of random fabric from my personal stash! The fabric will be a random woven fabric that I pick out (cotton or cotton poly blend) but the winner can choose preference from either kids fabric (boy or girl you choose) or adult (this could be anything except kid prints).  I know it’s not a huge prize, but something to get you motivated to sew this month :) .  The winning prize will ship free to the US & Canada.  If you are out of those countries you are welcome to participate but you will need to pay for shipping over the first $2.50 US.

So get sewing & I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with! Don’t forget to check back after the 1st to see the finalists & vote, and to check out the Flickr gallery for inspiration!  I already have a plan on what I making this month will be posting it soon :)

    Oh, I am excited about this one… I am working on a baby shower gift for my sisters new baby… trust me. This is nothing but a labor of love. Sissy requeted magnets in the bag for closure instead of velcro… I would be done by now if not for sitting there scratching my head with the pattern sitting in front of me saying how in the world am I going to pull this off. I am almost 95% done and can’t wait to share it!

    I just recently started following and I love your blog! I’m expecting 2 grandson’s next week (not twins – my daughter is due Feb. 17 and my daughter-in-law is due Feb. 18). I made each of them the nursing cover with that pattern that you have here on your site. Very well done, easy to follow instructions! Thanks and Congratulations on your new little one!

    What if I start the 1st day of March? Would I still be able to do the 12 month challenge?

      You can participate in all or some of them! If you want to complete previous challenges as well as a personal challenge since the prizes are already awarded you are welcome to, I love to see what readers are doing :). Just label them with which month they are for.

    Just uploaded my entries. I was very excited to get the pictures taken last night to enter them. I actually still have one more thing to enter, but I will have to find a way to take a picture tonight. This was so much fun to do! Thanks for hosting the 12 month challenge!
