If you finish before the deadline great! Post your work early, it might inspire someone else to finish! If you fall behind the group that is ok too try to catch up, some weeks are easier than others.
Please take a photo or two each week of your progress and load them to the new Flickr group Sew Spoiled Weekender Tote Project! If you do not have a flickr account it is free and you will find that there is an incredible sewing world at your finger tips!!! Just go to www.sewspoiled.net and click on Free Patterns to read through the pattern and download it to your computer!
There are some ground rules... 1. Have Fun! Make your sewing space relaxing and make sure you have everything you need at your finger tips.
2. Take at least one picture of each section of the sew-a-long.
(Gathering, Cutting, Step 2-3, Step 4-6, Step 7-9, Step 10-11 and finished Tote. A total of 7) Post it at Sew Spoiled Weekender Tote Project!
3. Do Not give up! Ask if you need help!
4. Sew Spoil yourself with a treat of some kind after you complete each part of the sew-a-long. (Ice Cream, bubble bath, long walk or something that you really enjoy doing.)
Well, this is my first time hosting a sew-a-long so I am bound to make a mistake. Please let me know if we need to make any changes. I will be making a Weekender Tote with the group, posting pictures and writing about our progress right here! Ready......... Set........Sew! ~Leah
