When you make sewing friends in real life, funny things start to happen. You have several of the same fabrics in your stash, you borrow patterns you wish you owned, and you discover that between the two of you, you own every single Deer&Doe Pattern.
Oh, wait, you don’t??? Maybe that’s just us. You see, we’re a bit obsessed.
The Quirky Peach and Craft Sanctuary have been spending a lot of time sewing together and obsessing over all of the pretty sewing patterns Deer & Doe has to offer. The Deer&Doe collection is gorgeous, wearable, and perfect for our lifestyle. A total wardrobe, if you aren’t the pants-wearing type. Which I’m not…
A couple of weeks ago, a thought crossed my mind: what if we sewed all of the patterns instead of letting them sit in our stashes? We already have them all, after all. How long would that take? Would anyone want to sew with us?
Let’s Sew Deer and Doe was born.
Sally and I are challenging ourselves to sew the entire Deer&Doe collection, between the two of us, before the end of the year. Can we do it? We’ll find out, but I think it’s going to be totally manageable. As long as we keep posting about it to keep ourselves accountable, that is. Personally, I’d love to sew them all of them myself, but I just don’t know if I’ll have the time, so I’m not committing to that much of a challenge! Watch this space, though, it could happen!
We know that not everyone wants to sew every pattern, but we’re challenging you to sew along with any Deer&Doe Pattern! We set up a flickr group for everyone to show off their beautiful makes, and we’ll be doing a giveaway at the end of the year. We’ll pick some favorites from the flickr group, and put up a vote for readers to choose a winner. The winner will get a Deer&Doe pattern of their choice and some other goodies that we’re not sharing yet 🙂
Any garments made from September 1st – January 1st can be added to the group, and are eligible.
Interested in sewing along? We thought so because we LOVE Deer&Doe too!
I’ll be posting my makes here, and Sally will be posting over at The Quirky Peach, so be sure to follow along there as well 🙂
Pick a pattern (or 10, they’re all gorgeous), post to the flickr group for a chance to win, grab a button, and watch this space. There’s about to be a Deer&Doe party in here!
