Hey everybody!! Happy Thursday!! Today I want to tell you all about a cool sewing challenge that I'm hosting with the beautiful Faniesha of www.foalexander.com! Its called the SummerSewChallenge and we're going to be sewing the super cute McCalls 7603!! I love this pattern so much and I can not wait to make me a couple views on it!!
This is definitely a challenge you should take part in because we've partnered with McCalls Pattern Company to give away 3 prizes!! Thats right, 3 winners will be chosen at the end of the challenge. Are you excited now?!! Awesome!! To join in on the fun and participate, all you have to do is:
- Make any view of the M7603 pattern
- Post your make(s) on social media, including Instagram*, Facebook, the McCall Pattern Company Facebook page, and/or Twitter.
- Use the hashtags #SummerSewChallenge and #M7603
*Instagram is the Preferred method
The challenge begins June 1st and ends at 11:59 EST on July 1st. Open to US residents only.
Now about those prizes I mentioned above.....Winners will receive:
1st Place Winner - (5) current McCall Pattern Company patterns of his/her choice
2nd and 3rd Place Winners - (2) current McCall Pattern Company patterns of his/her choice
Now you're probably wondering, "how will the winners be chosen?". A team of judges will choose their favorite makes from the submissions. Judges will look for fabric use, fit, quality of work, and overall styling. Makes must maintain the basic intent of the pattern.
The winners will be announced via Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter the week of July 4th. So, be sure to follow @FoAlexanderDIY, @BrittanyJJones, and @McCallPatternCompany on Instagram. All posts will be updated to reflect the winners, once announced.
Sounds like fun right!! I hope you'll be joining in on this challenge!! If you have any further questions, let Faniesha or I know and we'll be happy to answer!!
You have a great rest of your day, and I'll talk to you tomorrow in our weekly Sew With Me video!!
