Flip This Pattern




The fabulous ladies of Frances Suzanne have cooked up a year long competition/sew-along entitled "Flip This Pattern"!  Details straight from the source HERE
 
Each month, there will be several guest bloggers who do their own spin of the chosen pattern.  There will also be a sew-along link party so everyone can participate.:)  Giveaways, Discount Codes, and Prizes will be a part of this year long competition!
 
Are you wondering what the patterns will be?

 


One thing that I thought was great is that Ashley and Emily have said that projects don't have to be completed within the month that a pattern is featured for the link party.  "*Please note: creations sewn within the past six months may be linked and contributed to the monthly sew-along linky parties. These do not have to be completed within the month of the feature pattern." 

And who are the featured guest bloggers, you ask?  I'm sure you've surmised that I'm in on the competition since I'm blogging about it.;)  January is my month to officially flip a pattern...the Clever Charlotte Chickadee Blouse & Skirt.  That's one of the few CC patterns I haven't sewn so I'm looking forward to putting my own spin on it. 

There's a great bunch of bloggers participating:

  1. This looks fabulous, Cindy! Not sure I want to wait for January to see what you do with the Chickadee, though... That Heidi and Finn dress looks very tempting too.

  4. How fun is this!? I love a fun group challenge like this. Oh, and I just know you are going to do some fantastic flips, Cindy. How long do we have to wait before we see your first flip? I'm already chomping at the bit! Ha ha.

    1. You'll have a looooong wait, Lauren! My turn isn't until January...I purposely chose a month that usually isn't busy.;) But I might play around with some of the other challenges just for fun!
