The theme can be used in any way (E.g. using embroidery, appliqué, printed fabric, softy design, etc, etc.) It is open to anything that you want to make that relates to the theme.
Share photos, links and ideas as you sew and then reveal your finished item at the end of the month.

Shopping and put together pack - May 10th 2011Post:
May 30th 2011 latestSewing and sharing
: Make your item, chat and share the results between 30th May and 30th JuneDetails:
Buy a pattern, accent fabric and a couple of trimmings/notions to put together an "Inspiration Pack" for your partner, following their colour/style guidelines and what they want to make. This one is an easy one as it's just gathering supplies, but we should then make up our packs into the garment/item in the next month (eg. by June 30th) and post pics in the thread/flickr group. This give people some accountability so they actually make something (adding to the inspiration side of things) plus it will be great to see what everyone does with their pack and perhaps give us all a little more inspiration!Thread: Inspire Me! sign up thread
