Sew Americana 2018 :: Day 1

Jun 25, 2018

It’s Day 1 of our THIRD YEAR of the Sew Americana blog tour and I could not be more excited.  Seriously.  I couldn’t.  I looooooooove me some red, white and blue.  And even more than that, I love that I somehow got 25 other bloggers to play along with me and let me be their tour guide.  Right out of the gate, I promise that you will not be disappointed.  Promise.

Today’s lineup:

  • Marvelous Auntie M rocks out in a gorgeous stars within a star tank.
  • Handmade Boy makes me jealous that I didn’t think of making a faux-romper before she did.
  • Wild + Wanderful (me, ha!) dresses the entire family in some red, white and blue.
  • Phat Quarters works it with some gorgeous tonal stripes

Make sure you come back each day this week for more Americana inspiration.  And pa-pa-pa-please link up with us if you’ve got some red, white and blue to share.  I’d love to see it!

If you’re sewing some Americana items and want to share, please do! Link up your blog post or Instagram image so we can “oooh” and “ahhh” over what you’ve made too!
