Sew Lux Stitch & Share Challenge: Summer

Hey y'all!  Today I'm putting up our linky post for our July Stitch & Share Challenge.  I introduced the challenge several weeks ago here.  But here's the details again for you ...

The Sew Lux Stitch & Share Challenge
  • On the first of every other month (odd months), we will post a challenge theme.  This may be a technique that should be used or a concept to base your project around.
  • If a technique is to be used in your project, we'll share a step-by-step tutorial within the first week of the month to show you what to do just in case the technique is new to you.
  • On the 27th of the month, we'll put up a special post for you to link your projects to.  This is the time to share on your blog about what you made.  If you don't have a blog, you can link to a Flickr photo.  This will make it easy for us to check out everyone's projects!  (A Few Rules: Make sure your project and your post is specific to this challenge and is not a giveaway/promotional post.  We'd love for you to link back to the challenge post as well and visit the other participants' project posts.)
  • Each month, we'll select a random winner from participants who link up their project to win a $20 gift certificate to sewluxfabric.com.  You must link your project by the last day of the month to be entered for the random winner drawing.
For our first challenge, we're just going to give you a theme ... SUMMER!  Make a project that is inspired by whatever summer means to you - it can be a block, a mug rug, a quilt, a bag, whatever - it just has to include fabric and be made by YOU! :-)

Remember to post a link to your project by August 1st to be eligible for the gift certificate drawing!  :-)  Please email us if you have any questions - sewlux (at) gmail (dot) com.

Happy Sewing! :-)

  1. Thanks for a lovely contest. My sewing has been sporadic at best this summer...however, I am putting things out...just at a slower pace than normal. =) I love looking at the various entries.


Thanks for stopping by - we love hearing from you! :-)
