Spring Break PJ Tour Preview

I’m super excited about this blog tour. Back in November or October Deb and I had the idea to do a blog tour of pyjama patterns from our stash around the beginning of Decemeber, but of course things happen (like prepping for Christmas and little kids getting sick a lot) so we never got around to it. We figured a Spring Break PJ tour would be perfect though and so that it is what we wound up with!

Since we were going to be working with patterns in our stash we decided it would be great to work with the two ladies who now admin the Sew Your (Pattern) Stash group on Facebook: Jaime of Made by Jaime and Meriel of Create 3.5. When we posted the call for blog tour participants we didn’t think we’d get the huge response we got. Apparently sewing up patterns from your stash is a good thing!

We have 30 bloggers participating! This thing is huge! I ♥ it! 🙂

Some of the bloggers are using actual PJ patterns, some are using regular patterns and making pyjamas from them. Most are using PDF patterns but there is at least one blogger using a paper pattern!

And yes, I’m Canadian, I write it “pyjamas”. But pajamas, jammies, pjs, nighties, or nightgowns, nightshirts or sleep shirts, they’re all welcome on this tour! I hope you’ll have fun seeing all the pj inspiration!

Last thing, we have a sew along! The theme for March in the Sew Your (Pattern) Stash group is toys. You can link up any toys or toy-inspired outfits you’ve sewn in addition to any PJ’s you’ve sewn anytime after February 1st, 2016 until the link up closes on April 3rd. More details on the link up below!

Coming Soon to Lulu & Celeste

Coming Soon …

What’s happening this month you ask? Well, I’m super excited to let you know! Coming soon, very very soon are a bunch of fun blog tours I’m taking part in. I especially love doing tours that are very open-ended (like the topic allows for interpretation or sewing whatever pattern I want) and I also really like organizing blog tours. And lucky me, there are a few of both types happening this month.

Coming up soon in honour of St. Patrick’s Day is a blog tour hosted by CraftingCon called For the Love of Legends. I’m still finalizing my project but I will say that it is going to involve unicorns somehow.

Then the following week is the super awesome Spring Break PJ Party blog tour that I’m co-hosting with Deb, Jaime and Meriel. Jaime and Meriel also admin the Sew Your Pattern Stash group on Facebook. Basically all 30(!) of the bloggers participating will be sewing up pyjama patterns (or using non-pj patterns to sew up pjs) from their pattern stash. The patterns that will be featured are all ones the bloggers owned at the time of signing up! There will be roughly 25 designers featured. Lots of inspiration to be had! There will be daily giveaways and a big (BIG) prize for sewing along and linking up. So get your patterns out and sew yourself (or your kids or significant other) some pjs! More details on the prizes and how to link up will be posted next week.pj04

 

Then after that one I’ll be taking part in an Easter dress tour. I’m sewing up an Easter dress for Miss V using a pattern I own. (I’m trying real hard to sew up my pattern stash this year and not purchase new patterns!)

In April I’ve decided to host an Earth Day blog hop. If you are interested sign up >>HERE<<. Details are on the sign up form. It will be an anything-goes-(almost)-hop, as long as it has to do with upcycling/recycling/refashioning it’s golden!

There will be more fun stuff happening in April but I will share those later on in the month.

Oh, besides all the fun blog tours there will be another interview, a tutorial or two (if I remember to edit the pictures) and a couple reviews. So come back soon-ish to see what I’ve got coming up 🙂
