Whew, that was fun wasn’t it! Now it’s time for the Linen sew along.
We introduced you to the Linen Contestants, and tomorrow through Friday they will begin to unveil their creations made from the linen fabric they swapped. We also tried to inspire you with our round up of 20 things to sew with linen fabric. So start linking up anything you’ve made that used linen fabric, up to 3 links. The link up will remain open until Friday morning, when it will switch to voting. The winning contestant will be based on 50% vote and 50% judges score. Who are the judges? The amazing Linen contestants! They are the experts for this week, and therefore the best judges, don’t you think?
The winner of the sew along is going to receive a $25 gift certificate to L’Oiseau Fabrics. If the fabric over there doesn’t cause some major swooning, nothing will! Also, for the whole month of July, everyone can take $10 off the price of our ebook by using the discount code “fabricswap” Grab it while you can at this price during Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition only!
Be sure to come back every day this week, as our Linen contestants each show you the fabric they received and what they made with it. On Friday, the voting will open for you to choose your favorite Linen fabric creation, and of course the Challenge Create judges will get their say too! Next week, it starts all over again for week 3 of Challenge Create: Fabric Swap Edition’s Geometric Week! So go ahead and link up anything you’ve sewn with Linen fabric, up to 3 projects. We can’t wait to see what you create!
