Y’all, I am super excited! I will be hosting the 2020 Swim Sew Along in The Fabric Fairy’s Facebook group (here) March 23-29. This will be another Sew Along where you can sew any (swim) pattern of your choice, for anyone!
The following photos are some of my Fabric Fairy makes from last summer. 🙂
I will be making items for my whole family: a bikini and coverup for me, swim trunks and a rash guard for my three year old, and board shorts for my partner! I’ll go over more of the details of the patterns I am sewing up soon. 🙂
There will be giveaways and discounts and so much fun! I’ll post videos of me chatting fabrics, patterns, notions, etc. I may even sneak in some videos of different tips and tricks for working with swim and any pattern modifications I am planning! Let me know if there is anything you would like to see specifically, and I’ll try to work it in. The suit below is posted here.
The Fabric Fairy Sew Along will be a full week long, and to be eligible for prizes, you’ll sew one full swimsuit (for anyone) and another item-maybe a second bikini top to mix and match, maybe a coverup, maybe a coordinating suit for your little, partner, or friend! Edited to add: Because of everything happening in the world and schedules being disrupted, the second item is now optional. If you are able to sew a second item beyond one full swimsuit, that will be another entry for the giveaways! So many opportunities, especially with the variety of swim, board short, and mesh fabrics that The Fabric Fairy offers!
The schedule is as follows:
March 23: Prepare patterns, fabrics, and notions
March 24: Cut your fabric
March 25: Begin Swimsuit
March 26: Continue (and/or finish) swimsuit
March 27: Sew second item (this is now optional for a bonus entry for prizes!)
March 28: Catch up day over the weekend
March 29: Post final makes in the final thread to be eligible for prizes!
I have a video all ready to go talking about which fabrics I will be using! I’m planning on posting it around March 9th, two weeks before the SAL starts! If I have enough interest sooner, I can always post it this week. 🙂 Let me know!
