Shades of Me: A Series of Sewing for You

My lovely friend Celina from Petit a Petit and Family and I have joined up to reinforce a New Year’s resolution of ours… to sew for ourselves more.  We love to sew for our kids, we really do, but they grow so fast.  There are times when we think about how amazing their wardrobes are, and we realize how sad and lonely our own clothing selection is.  So, we chatted and we plotted and here we are…
Shades of Me is meant to push you further in your selfish sewing endeavors.  Not only do we want you to sew for yourself, we want you to think outside of the box and come up with a monochromatic color themed outfit. 
What will you choose?  


Pick a color, sew it and take pics to share.  
Have fun and enjoy the process.
Don’t forget… if you choose Red, it doesn’t mean you have to do just red… think of all of the shades of red there are! Pink, mauve, magenta, ombre?  There are so many options, people, so many options!

 We are so excited to share this journey with all of you and we hope you will participate and join in.  This is going to be SO fun.  

We have created a Flickr group for each of you to add photos.  We will be showcasing you and encouraging you along the way.  Of course, there will be a round up of our favorite projects and also a giveaway.   

There is also a Pinterest board for you to check out, as well!
Use the hashtag  #sewingshadesofme to join in on the fun on any social media site.

We have asked several amazing bloggers to help us achieve this sewing resolution, and to make things even more interesting, each guest has been assigned a specific color…woah, right?  Talk about a challenge!  It is going to be amazing to see what each person comes up with.  Each day, there will be 3 bloggers sharing their creations… so, mark your calendars!
