Pin It, Sew It! Official Rules and First Link Up!

A few weeks ago I challenged you all to Pin It, Sew It! To pick an item you have pinned on Pinterest that you have wanted to sew and actually make it. Then at the end of the month we could all share our accomplishments in a linky party.

I wanted to do this because, I am constantly pin things I really love, but never get around to making them. So I figured if we had each other to keep motivated I would be able to conquer some of these pins.

Well let me tell you this has been super motivating for me! So I have decided to make this a new monthly link up!

Official Rules

To participate create a new board on your Pinterest account called Pin it, Sew it!. Then pin all items you seriously want to sew to that board every month. These could be tutorials you have found on the web, patterns you want to purchase, etc.

Then create a board called Pin it, Sew it, I did it! where you will post photos of items you have accomplished from your Pin it, Sew it! board.

When creating new pins please add the hash tag #pinitsewit to the end of your descriptions, so I can see all your lovely pins.

On the 1st of every month I will post the Pin It, Sew It! Link up here at Pile O' Fabric. You can link up to your Pin It, Sew It, I did it! board or a specific pin, or a flickr photo, or even better a blog post talking about your Pin It, Sew It! accomplishments. I realize there are of link ups on the first of the month so feel free to put this in a post for another link up and just reference which item was for Pin It, Sew It! and use the Pin it, Sew it! button.

The linky will remain open for 1 week each month to give you all some time. Just like other linky parties, you will visit the two people who link up before you and share some encouraging comment love :)

So let the fun begin, time to start conquering some of those pins and of course your big fat Pile O' Fabric! Try and share this linky with one other friend, the more the merrier! 

July Pin it, Sew it! Link Up

For the month of July I was able to accomplish a purse pattern I had pinned earlier in the month. I shared this purse a week ago, because I was super anxious to show you so you can read more about it here. Here is the pattern I used

and here is my bag
