I just ran across a great idea from Jess at The Sometimes Sewist. She decided that it would be a good idea to sew for someone other than herself and without monetary profit (I may be adding that bit in myself, but it makes sense) during the month of September. She is calling it Sew Selfless September. I’ve decided to join her in this endeavor so here is my pledge.
I, Julie, at Crazywonderfullife, pledge this Sew Selfless September to sew one item for each of my family members, that’s a total of 4.
If the link doesn’t work on that image, I’m also putting one in the sidebar that should link to her blog.
It’s really easy to join if you want to. Here are the “rules” from her post:
1. Post your pledge in the comments below, using this template: (Go to her post first. Don’t post here)
“I, *name*, of *blog name*, pledge this Sew Selfless September to make *your pledge here* for *your intended receipt(s)*.”
If you want to name specific people to make for or things you’re going to make, cool, if not cool, too. You can see how vague my pledge is; no problem with leaving some wiggle room!
2. Spread the word!
Post your Selfless sewing pledge on your own blog, and link it back to this post by using one of the badges below.
3. Join the Sew Selfless September Flickr group.
4. Come September, make all the things for not you and post them to the Flickr group!
I don’t belong to Flickr, but I will link back to her original post and she can put my pictures on Flickr if she wants. Now, I just need to decide what to make. I already have fabric for a quilt for my hubby. I should at least be able to get the top done, and my daughter wants a camera bag with dividers for her lenses and supplies. She also needs a new quilt for her bed. As for the boys, that will take a bit more thought.
I sure hope some of you decide to join us!
