I've had Amy Butler's Sophia Bag Pattern on my "to make" list for a while now... Stacy (of Stacy Sews) and I were chatting the other day about it and she came up with the fantastic idea of starting a sew-along (with prizes!) to help motivate us and to see what kinds of beauties you all will make.
Here's what to do: The Sophia Sew Along starts today and runs until midnight, April 30 (you can use any material(s) that you like, but you must use the Sophia to be eligible to win). Join the FLICKR sew-along group and upload your final project. If you don't have a FLICKR account, you can always email us the pics and we'll post them for you.
Feel free to share photos of your progress, add notes, and ask questions\share information in the Discussion Area, but you must have a final photo uploaded by April 30. At the completion of the contest, Stacy and I will pick a winner from the pool of entrants who will win a 'fabulous prize package'!
If you need the pattern, I've got a limited supply in my web store - click on THIS LINK to get 15% off of your entire purchase through 3/31/08! This past weekend I updated my site a bit: added new fabrics for sale, all of Amy Butler's newest patterns (Kimberly Bag, Anna Tunic, Lotus Tunic, and Sophia Bag), more COMPLETE fabric kits for the Emmeline Apron, and new wetbag and nursing cover-up fabrics! Have fun! ~ Kris
