sewing into submission...the Sew Bossy Initiative

Well, I was browsing around my favorite blogs a few weeks ago and came across a post by Anne, at Pretty Grievances. She was telling the tale of being bossed around by a fellow sewing blogger,Cuckoo Chanel via the Sew Bossy Initiative. I loved the idea. Loved it.

SO, I found my way to The Closet Case Files, and then found my way to Paige and she agreed to swap! It's her second time around the block with this, but she loved it so much she was willing to do it again!

We’ve spent the last few weeks getting to know each other via email, blogs and pinterest. I love her style and her adventures with vintage patterns. In fact, after a browse through her Pinterest page, I was quite happy to see that she and I have a some very similar style interests! It's Kismet!

This week, I’m packing up the pattern, fabric and notions for a project for Paige. She is doing the same for me. And then, we get to sew into submission each other’s projects!

How fun is that? I’m excited to see what Paige is sending. I think it’s a fabulous way to try something new without having to do all the planning for it!

I’ll keep you posted when my project arrives and of course, every step of the way!

And of course, since I'm always up for a good swap and always excited about surprises, I might actually want to do this again if anyone wants to play along.

In the meantime, go give Paige some sewing love on her blog! She's making Hawthorne at this very moment!


  1. Can't wait to see what you'll be sewing! This sounds interesting.

  2. I love this. I wish I sewed enough to tackle a project. Mostly I sew scout patches on shirts, curtains for the house and whatever little project my girl wants to try.

  3. Isn't it fun? I'm so glad you are playing- can't wait to see your plan!!

    1. Paige and I should each get our packages tomorrow! I hope she loves it! Thanks for the idea!

  4. I think this sounds like a fabulous plan! Can't wait to see what you get and give. I might be willing to play this game - let me know what you think after you do it the first time. :) g

  5. I think this sounds so fun, how do you find someone to swap with?


I'd love to hear from you! Let's talk!
