I've something so exciting to share with you today!
There are two sew alongs starting for my pattern The Nappy Bag! They're both starting 1st May and the posts will be on my blog here. The two sew alongs are running in Facebook groups, and I'd love you to join us!
A sew along is a great way to make a bag that you're not sure whether you're able to tackle on your own, or one that you know you are able to make, but would appreciate some company...oh and you want to win some prizes!
One is running in the Bag makers question and answer forum Bobbin Girl's Sewing Bee, and the other is a group that's come from the facebook group Sewing tote bags and purses and is called The Nappy bag - Sew along with Mrs H.

Bobbin Girl's Sewing Bee is a smaller group, still 330 members though, very encouraging and great for really getting to chat. I've laughed and chatted away in this group very comfortably!
Sewing tote bags and purses is a larger group, international of course, and excellent if you need lots of advice very quickly. With over 14,000 members it can get busy, but it's very good for the ego when you post a photo of a new bag and immediately get 20 likes!
There'll be posts each week of the next steps and I'll talk you through all sorts of tips and tricks, tools to make life easier, and how to customise the nappy bag to your own needs.

We'll have an end date of 15th June, which gives us plenty of time. Alison from Bobbin Girl reminded me there's two bank holidays in May! You don't need to have finished by that date, but if you have then you can be entered into the competition to win the prizes (TBA).
Check in later in the week for a list of supplies, where to find them and my unusual suggestion of a starting point! I'm looking forwards to sewing with you!
