As we continue to spend a lot of time at home, why not sew something fabulous to enjoy at home?
This year’s challenge is to sew “lounge” wear (or something to lounge with), like a caftan, lounging pajamas, embroidered slippers, or a cushy robe. Loungewear can be luxurious – Like a floral silk caftan or silk pajamas. How about pajamas made with an oh so soft cotton or bamboo knit? I’m crediting Barbara Moss for this idea, she posted pictures of amazing knit pajamas she sewed for her granddaughter in our Facebook Group.
The ASG NATIONAL 2020 “ANYONE CAN WIN CONTEST” is still open until September. (See article in our upcoming newsletter for more details.) You need to make something from a select group of Simplicity patterns for this contest. . Among this year’s patterns is a Caftan and a drapey kimono jacket. You can enter two contests with one item.
For those who don’t sew garments, a lap quilt or pillow qualify for the President’s Challenge. Everyone can join in.
To enter your entry for the President’s Challenge, e-mail one to three pictures of your entry along with a brief description of your entry and your inspiration for making the item to Sue Eisen, President at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 10, 2020.
There will be prizes – the overall winner will get a $200 gift card.
Here are a couple of possibilities that will work for both the Any One Can Win and the President’s Challenge. Both are Simplicity patterns
