Hello lovely stitchers!
Have you decided to take part on the Honeycomb Shirt and Dress Sew Along? Not yet? What are you waiting for?! You will be able to make your Honeycomb Shirt or Dress following the booklet with the instructions, the special posts we will be sharing here and also the references to the tutorial available on the CocoWawa Craft's YouTube channel. But there's more...
We have teamed up with lovely Harriet from Sew Me Sunshine AND! Joy from Pink Coat Club to offer you some amazing prizes. Harriet is giving away a £20 gift voucher to spend on her beautiful online shop; Joy will give a lucky winner three awesome pins that you can pick yourself and you will also be able to choose a CocoWawa pattern of your choice :) Sounds cool, right?
So, how does it work? There will be three winners chosen with a random online picker based on your Honeycombs. Each one of them will receive one of the prizes. To enter you just need to post a picture of your finished garment on Instagram using the hashtag #honeycombsewalong and tagging us all so that we don't miss your post. You will have time to enter till the 15th of July. Winners will be announced on the 16th. If you finish your garment before the end of the Sew Along, that's totally fine, you can post it at anytime from now on.
The Sew Along starts on the 12th of June and finishes on the 22nd.
