Sew Alongs

Quite a while back, while I was ignoring my blog, another super sewing blogger asked me if she could do a sew along with one of my patterns on her blog. I expected 8 or 10 women to make my bag all together, but it turned out to be more like 45 or 50. It was really pretty amazing. Here in the final post about the sew along, you can see some of the wonderful variety of fabrics chosen for the project. If you want to read it, you might have to use google translate. Just looking at the pictures is fun though. Sew alongs are quite the internet phenomenon. From quilters (who have done this kind of thing through quilt shops forever) to dressmakers, sewing along is a popular and fun way to push yourself out of your comfort zone or make yourself complete a project that might otherwise get left behind. Thanks for doing the sew along Karin, I hope all of your talented friends are enjoying their bags.
