Once Upon a Thread, Chapter 5!

Start your sewing machines, wind your bobbins, and thread those needles!!
Are you ready?!  I thought it was high time for another Once Upon a Thread. And I've got some fun things planned that I can't wait to share with you, including a highly sought after tutorial, giveaways, and more.  (There's always a "more", right?)  We will begin September 29th, because it's still National Sewing Month (did ya know?) and I've yet to fully celebrate it.
What is Once Upon a Thread?  Anything to do with a needle and thread that is inspired by books.  Mostly children's books, but any books will do.  I want you to sew along, too.  I want your mind to roam free, stretch yourself, try something new, perfect a technique, and have fun, of course!
Can you believe this will be Chapter 5?  I still have so many books I want to do.  I just might go on sewing even after my children are grown and gone. ;)
Want more details?  You can read about the first season of OUT here, but we will just be doing it for one week.  I will have a link party set up so you can post what you've created, too, and a chance to be featured here! Lower those presser feet and begin stitching!!


  1. oooooo!! I am so excited for this! Love love OUT! Now what to sew....

  2. Yay! My favorite series out there!

  3. Woohoo!! I love this series! So much.
    The hard part is narrowing down the books to sew from. Too many to choose from!

  4. ooo fun!! I can't wait to see all the posts!!!

  5. AH!! How am I just seeing this…I miss this series almost every year and then kick myself. Might be the time to stitch up some awesome stuff from the chapter books we've been reading lately!! So excited!

  6. Oh yay! I've been wanting to sew something from the Adventures With Barefoot Critters book

  7. YAY! I'm so happy to see another chapter of this series. As someone with a serious book addiction and who can appreciate creativity and sewing, I absolutely love this series! I can't wait to be awed and inspired!

  8. Love, love, love this series and the creativity it sparks among sewists!! Can't wait to see what everyone creates....


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
