1. Fit the pattern to your body
(with the help of the community and the how-to video)

2. Alter the now well-fitted pattern into another garment!
(with the help of the how-to videos!)

Share your creations and enter to win prizes!


Prizes like…

  • gift certificates to lovely fabric stores and more surprises
  • the Sew Clothes You LOVE course
  • a custom-drafted raglan knit, dress pattern – made just for you!
  • and the big one!

    A space at the Fall retreat on Mackinac Island! 

    (valued $665 respectively! Doesn’t include travel, meals or lodging)

Sew knits without fear.








The Make-It-Your-Own Project is kind of like a challenge and a course merged into one!

  1. Each month you’ll get a PDF pattern for a beloved, but basic knit garment.  (t-shirt, skirt & dress)
  2. With the pattern, you’ll also receive an instruction booklet and video how-to.
  3. You’ll spend the next two weeks getting the fit right and sewing your basic knit garment.  With the help of the how-to’s and the community!
  4. Share your makes by the deadline and enter to win prizes!

Then, mid-month…

  1. You’ll receive inspiration and how-to videos on how to take that basic pattern and turn it into new patterns!

    It’s a super sneaky way to start pattern drafting! 
    My favorite way to sew garments I LOVE.

  2. During the second half of the month you’ll alter your pattern into something new and sew it up.

  3. Share your new creation by the deadline and entering to win prizes!!

Try your hand at designing and
pattern drafting...yes, you!



Prizes like books, gift certificates to fabric stores like (Nature’s Fabric) and other surprises!

Those Prizes…they’re not based on who takes the best pictures, has the best styling or made the most amazing thing (although maybe there will be something special for that), it’s a drawing where you get entries for things like sharing your process, posting pictures, finishing the garment by the deadline, bringing a friend, being engaged.

Natural Dyeing

How-to video on using food waste to dye your cloth.

(things like…avocado pits and onion skins)

Make it even MORE your own.

Printing Your Fabric

A video on how to carve your own block and print a pattern onto your fabric!

Learning a bit about carving the block, repeat patterns and what inks I like to use on knit fabrics.

Not nearly as fun, I say!
