What better way to start a new week then with a Sew-a-Long!!  I don't know about you, but Sew-a-Long week may be my most favorite week of the month!  Let's see if we can make this the best one yet!!  

Kaitlynn won our SAL poll with flying colors!  It is one of our newest patterns, and the first from our newest designer, Leah, so I an beyond excited to sew this one up!  I haven't had a chance yet, but I just adore this look!

Let's get started!  We had a HUGE sale, and I know the majority of you already purchased your pattern!  If you are just joining us now and need to pick it up, it's not on sale anymore, but I assure you it is well worth the full price!!  

Day 1 is always fabric day!  We are soooo lucky to have Punkin Heads Threads as our SAL sponsor!!!  Laura is not only one of our amazing testers, but she owns an amazing fabric shop and we are so blessed that she offered to sponsor the fabric for our July SAL!!!

Laura sent over this {GORGEOUS} floral fabric.  I may have squealed a little when I opened the box!  This Lila Tueller fabric is TO.DIE.FOR!!!!  Paige's Passion SCREAMS Kaitlynn, so I was so pleased when it won for this month!  I can't wait to sew up my Kaitlynn with this stunning fabric!

The colors in this fabric scream {summertime}!  And I wish you could all give it a little squeeze because it is so buttery soft.  It's going to make the most beautiful Kaitlynn!  And maybe if I have enough leftover I can make baby sister something too!  Word to the wise, don't be like me and not remember to pick up trims/lace/ric-rac/bias tape, etc!  I walked out of the fabric store without anything I came for, which means a second trip to the store must happen today!  

If this is your first SAL with us, welcome!  It's so easy to take part and we are so happy you are here with us!  Everyday we work on a small portion of the pattern.  I sew and photograph every step along the way and help you with any tips and tricks!  At the end of each day you will take a photo of your progress and post it in the daily album linked in the pinned post in our FB Group!  Those who have sewn along and have photos in the daily albums are eligible for the SAL PRIZE!!!  Our prize this time will be from Punkin Head Threads, so you are definitely going to want to win!!!

Ok, back to day 1.  Once you have all your items ready, gather them up and take a photo!  You know how much I love seeing your daily progress!  Snap that pic and upload it into the Day 1 album.  We are done with today!  Day 1 is painless!  See you back here tomorrow!
