The Sunday Scrap-along 2018

Hello lovely makers!

I totally forgot to write about my first Make-Along that I’m running on Instagram and Ravelry! How remiss of me. I did mention it on my last podcast, and of course if you follow me on Instagram you will have heard all about it (incidentally I am most active on Instagram so that is the best place to stay up to date with Miss Leela happenings).

I have been wanting to start a make-along for a while and I thought a scrappy project make-along would be perfect since I love scrappy makes.

So join me in my first ever make-along…The Sunday Scrap-Along!

Here are the details and guidelines:

  1. The make-along will run from Sunday the 5th of August to Sunday the 30th December – a nice long make-along.
  2. Join in every **Sunday** and work on a scrap project.
  3. Your scrap project can be of any craft discipline, so it can be sewing, patchwork, embroidery, knitting, crochet, weaving, felting, spinning, paper craft etc.
  4. At least 70% of your project must be made using scraps, so scrap fabric, scrap yarn, basically the left over bits & pieces and remnants from other projects.
  5. Use the hashtag #sundayscrapalong2018
  6. Join in on Ravelry and over on Instagram – feel free to tag me in your posts @missleela_handmade.
  7. There will be two threads on Ravelry to participate in – a Chatter thread and a Finished objects thread.
  8. I will be drawing random prize winners from both Instagram & the two Ravelry threads throughout the make-along.
  9. WIP’S can be included
  10. Lastly have fun and get your scrap on!

I do hope you’ll join me. I intend to make a lot of progress on my scrappy 1” hexagon quilt. It still is a way to go to fit my queen bed!
