Welcome to our first Sew Along!
Lead Designer: Kathleen Gallaher (@ohsewkat) of Oh Sew Kat!
This Month’s Theme: ‘Twas the Night Before
Your Challenge: Create one or more doll-related items that fits the theme. It could be some cute & cuddly holiday pajamas, a fuzzy pair of slippers, a special teddy bear … anything that makes you think of that magical night before the big day! We’ve suggested a few patterns below to help get you started, but you’re welcome to use any pattern you like (or no pattern at all).
Group Participation: Feel free to post your works-in-progress by starting your own thread for your project in the November 2017 forum and then add to it as you go along throughout the month. Once you’ve completed your project, please add it to the group photo album for this month (via the Photos tab on the group home page). As the month goes along, feel free to ask questions of lead designer Kathleen Gallaher or any other iCreate designer or group member. We’d also love to see you cheer each other along and offer advice or support whenever needed. The more you interact, the more fun we’ll all have!
Feel free to post questions below … and have fun!

I am sooo excited about the monthly sew alongs! I cannot wait to get some festive pajamas sewn up!

So, I’m assuming anything related to this sew a long – questions, photos, ideas…get posted under this topic and not in the main wall of this overall group. Because it does show up on the group wall but still under the specific topic?
I think I will do something for my little Wellie boy Rudy who is soon to have a new Glitter friend who told me his name is Jake!

Since there is only one Sew Along theme per month, you can post comments, photos of works in progress, etc on the main wall because that’s where it’s easiest for people to see. Once you finish your project, please also post a photo in the photo album for this month. If you prefer, you are welcome to start a thread for your own project in the forum instead and you could add to it as you go along for the month. 🙂

Thinking this is going to alot of fun. I truly do like the idea of Themes each month. I will try very hard to do something each month.

Well someone must have been reading my mind because last weekend I cutout night clothes from several of the patterns that were mentioned. I guess that means I will need to finish them by months end. I cant wait to see every ones pictures.
