Make Laundry Don’t Do Laundry Kick-Off

Oh my goodness!!! Today is the day!! Karly, Jeanine, and I couldn’t be more excited  to see the excitement has arrived.  The tour that celebrates the love of sewing and the strong dislike of doing laundry begins today!! Let the sewing begin.

Laundry Tour Graphic 2

For this tour  the challenge was to sew up something that you (or your little person) can walk out the door wearing during the amount of time it would take to wash a load of laundry. (Whether you include washing and drying time together is your own interpretation of the challenge.) There will be two categories. Fresh Sew and Go-To Sew. We know stitching up something new is going to take longer than patterns that you always pull out for a quick fix. A fresh sew is something you haven’t stitched up before, but a go-to sew is something you know you can whip up with ease.

We had a ton of ladies hop on board with this tour, but we know there are many more people out there that feel the same as we do about laundry.  We wanted to include everyone, so we are hosting a link up so that you will sew along with us.  How awesome is that?  The link up will be open from Monday 6/6 through Sunday 6/12.  Monday the 13th we will announce the random winner of an awesome prize pack for the participating in the link up! Find the link up at the bottom of the post each day.  There is also a rafflecopter you will want to check out.  There are two large prizes for that too! Check out the details further down in a bit.  Now I want to show you some sneaks for our first day of the tour!


Katie always does a great job putting together fashionable ensembles.  Check out how long it took her to put this ensemble together.  And, don’t you love her necklace too?!

Four skorts in 2 hours? That’s like the sewing time of four skirts and 4 shorts! Sign me up for that!  Check out what pattern Ajaire used to create these rocking skirts.  We all know Thread Faction has been blowing up recently with the awesome tour that just wrapped up.


Courtney is sharing her favorite quick sews.  Get the scoop on how and what patterns she is using to put off laundry for another day.

Katy is sucking me in with the cuteness in this sneak.  I just have to go scope out what she created for her little man.
