Stitch & Share Challenge: Texture

Hey there!  Today I'm putting up the linky post for our next Stitch & Share Challenge.  This month's challenge is all about TEXTURE and I can't wait to see your projects!

The Sew Lux Stitch & Share Challenge
  • Every other month or so, we will post a challenge theme.  This may be a technique that should be used or a concept to base your project around.  You'll have 3 weeks to link up a project.
  • If a technique is to be used in your project, we'll share a step-by-step tutorial to show you what to do just in case the technique is new to you.
  • On the challenge announcement post, we'll put up a a linky for you to add your projects to (see below).  When you have a project ready, share on your blog about what you made and add your post to the linky.  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.  Please link back to this challenge post as well and visit the other participants' project posts.)  Limit two entries per person.

·       At the end of each challenge, we'll select a random winner from participants who link up their project to win a $20 gift certificate to  You must link your project by the last day of the challenge to be entered for the random winner drawing.

For this month's challenge, its all about projects using TEXTURE!  This could mean all sorts of things ... ruffles, pleats, more pleats, buttons, and more!  Please note that just the use of flannel or a fabric other than cotton doesn't qualify ... its about techniques to create texture.

Remember to post a link to your project by 11:59 PM EST on August 26th to be eligible for the gift certificate drawing!  :-)  Please email us if you have any questions - sewlux (at) gmail (dot) com.

We'll post a winner by August 30th!

Happy Sewing! :-)


  1. OH, this sounds like a lot of fun - thinking cap on!

  2. Ooh, I loooooooove texture but rarely do it. Thanks for the push!

  3. Stinky! I was going to make something to enter today...but just realized the linky is closed! Too bad...I just haven't had time to sew at all this summer. Maybe next time round.


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