The Sew Bossy Initiative is a swap, of sorts. And I was sucked right in. My first Boss Around was from Paige at Lux per Diem. I sent her a vintage style pattern and Hawaiin print and some other goodies, and she sent me this pretty floral and an OOP Laura Ashley pattern, and all the notions to go with.
I haven't gotten to that project yet, but it's on the top of my pile after a junior bridesmaid's dress is completed. I am already thinking of ways to make that dress my own, and want to get it made so I can enjoy it during the late summer/early fall.
Well, then my buddy Lori expressed an interest, and she and I agreed to a Sew Bossy Swap. I got her package last week, and it included a fabulous graphic silky print and a pattern that I probably would have never even given a second look. But that's the idea...she gets to boss me around! So, this tunic is under Paige's dress in my project pile. I keep thinking of it with leggings and boots for fall.
Anyway, back to the swap thing...I've really been thinking about seeing if there is any interest out there to do a Special Sewing Swap? I would call a theme, we'd have a budget and I promise, it would be a blast. If you love getting surprises in the mail and love to gift others, and you love to sew and are interested in playing along, I'd like to know what you think.
Leave a comment expressing your interest, if you are a blogger, and let's see what happens!
