August is here which means so is a fun new sewing challenge!

We are excited about this challenge! If your stash is anything like mine is then you have a boatload of little 1yd and 1/2yd pieces left from the larger cuts ... and this is the month to use them!

READ THE NEWSLETTER for some great ideas and links to free patterns and projects!

This month's blog posts will focus on ideas to hopefully inspire you to use up your under 2yd cuts and even scraps! Let's have a fun month making the most of our fabric stashes (so we have an excuse to buy more when September starts!!!) 

To enter your sews into the monthly challenge album join us in the LAB group on facebook!

ok. now that the odds and ends are sorted, who wants to see my first 1yd project?? 

The Sisboom Leighanna in size 5/6 !

The Leighanna is a fast sew. I like to call it a 1for1. 1yd of fabric used in 1hr of time! and it is sooooo perfect for back to school! 

When I sew the Leighanna up I always give the bow center a stitch down the middle so it cannot come untied on the kids! No one needs shirt strings in their soup at school lunch!

What will be your first sew for the challenge? Let's all try and sew one thing a week (at least!)! 

The free motion applique used up the tiny bits of fabric (the giraffe pattern isn't out quite yet for the FMA)

That Leighanna with the giraffe on it is so cute! Adorable model, too.
