Flip This Pattern

It's a series, it's a competition, it's a's just plain awesome!  Flip this Pattern is a YEAR-LONG EVENT hosted by the amazing sewing sisters Ashley and Emily, over at FrancesSuzanne and I am so incredibly excited to be a part of it that I can hardly contain myself!  

Here's the idea: twelve patterns have been selected to be 'flipped' (remixed, embellished, made-over, etc.) by three or four guest bloggers each month.  Anyone at home who chooses to sew-along can add their own 'flip' to the linky party.  Near the end of each the month, YOU will vote on your favourite guest blogger 'flip', and WE, the guest bloggers, will vote for our favourite sew-along 'flip'.  Then, those winning 'flippers' will win fun prizes!  Sound awesome?!  I know!!!

Here's what a typical month will look like in FrancesSuzanne's words:

"Final week of the preceding month: discount codes available for the flipped pattern, giveaways of the pattern, and prizes announced for the guest contributor and sew-along winner
{*offers and prizes will vary each month....}

First Wednesday of the month: sew-along linky party opens

Following 3-4 Thursdays (depending on the calendar): guest contributors share a 'flipped version' of the given pattern

Friday (following the final guest contributor's flipped version): public voting of the guest contributors' creations; sew-along linky party closes

Sunday: public voting ends

Final Tuesday of the month: Winners announced

**And the cycle continues with the next month's pattern!"

Here are the patterns that have been selected:
