In case you didn’t know, #sewphotohop is back this year! Created and hosted by Rachel at House of Pinheiro, it’s a photo-a-day challenge with a different sewing-related theme for each day in September.
I’ve been trying to keep up with posting, but the real pleasure has been scrolling through the hashtag on Instagram. “Meeting” new sewers and interacting with their fabulous garments, thoughtful comments, and creative photos, has been a blast. Check out #sewphotohop on Instagram, and get inspired by the highlights below!
Inspiration, Day by Day
(day 1) Hello!
Would you believe, there’s at least one other sewer who is also a metal fan? Well, there is — Caroline! Another musically-inclined sewer is Annie. If you can read her greeting and not get the theme to Fresh Prince of Bel Air stuck in your head…I tip my hat to you.
(day 2) Favorite Skill
Hands down, Carolyn‘s shoemaking ability was the most inspiring skill I came across! Not only did she make an amazing outfit for One Year, One Outfit, but now she can literally dress herself from head to toe.
(day 3) Dream Project
There’s truly nothing new under the sun…not even dreams. Both Emma and I dream of making leather Burberry-inspired coats. C-razy, ain’t it? But that’s the beauty of #sewphotohop, it helps like-minded sewers find each other.
(day 4) Signature Look
(day 6) Essential Kit
(day 9) Dud (Gone Wrong)
More, More, More
There were all these gems and more, after just 9 days of #sewphotohop. Really looking forward to the rest of the month!
