One Yard Wonders Sew Along 2011

Announcing the first ever Pink Chalk Sew Along! Carrie is the newest member of the Pink Chalk Fabrics Team. She came on board and inspired us all with her idea to coordinate a Sew Along for one of our all time favorite books One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins.

Here’s the low down:

We will be making every project in the book from beginning to end. Yes, all 101 One Yard Wonders!

Each Monday we’ll post the projects and the fabric selected by the Pink Chalk Team. On Friday we’ll share our completed works. The schedule is 2 projects per week so we can reach our goal of completing all 101 projects by the end of 2011. We’ll work in the book in order. Yes, just like Julie and Julia.

We’ll share pictures, progress, tips and tribulations as we go. We would love to see and hear from you too, here’s how:

Flickr: join the group and add your project photos One Yard Wonders Sew Along 2011 Flickr Group

Pink Chalk Studio Blog: add a Link to your Project on the weekly Friday blog post (we’ll continue to update the list as the Sew Along progresses, add your link to the appropriate project week at any point along the way)

Facebook: share your project photos and comments on the Pink Chalk Fabrics Facebook page (didn’t know we had a Facebook page? it’s new and we’re having quite a good time with it!)

I’ll be posting Week 1’s fabrics and projects in the next post. Look for completed Week 1 project pictures on Friday. I need to figure out some sort of prize thing for sewing along with us. Stay tuned for that.

I’m very excited, what do you guys think?

I’m working on the button thing too!
