Purse Palooza: a group of about 40 sewing bloggers make a purse and share their thoughts on the process on Sara Lawson’s blog Sew Sweetness. Did you follow Purse Palooza 2012? I did! I remember reading each and every post, eager to see all the sewing projects and learn about the patterns I might want to try.
Well, I’m happy to be on the sewist blogging team for this year’s event. I’ll be making the Sophia Carry-All, designed by Amy Butler. Watch out for my post on 10/11/13
Here’s how it works:
- Every weekday from September 30th – October 25th, Sara has 2 amazing guest bloggers scheduled to share with you a purse sewing pattern review. None of the purses reviewed last year are being reviewed again, so these will be fresh sewing pattern reviews! The review will contain detailed information about what they thought about the sewing pattern, modifications they made, what kind of interfacing they used, and more. Get inspired!
- Even more exciting…THERE WILL BE A GIVEAWAY EVERY WEEKDAY DURING THE EVENT! That’s right, 20 GIVEAWAYS! So check back at Sew Sweetness during the weekdays in October 2013.
- If you make our own purse, you will get a chance to show it off at the end of the event, with a chance to win some amazing prizes. International entries are welcome, too.
