What do you say about some summer sewing using free patterns, spending little to no money and at the same time, having a chance to win some amazing prices? Well, today I challenge you to do just that! Welcome to the first ever Misusu Patterns FREEkin’ sewing challenge!
Our FREEkin’ Sewing Challenge - yes, the pun is intended - is all about our selection of FREE patterns, tutorial and artworks. We’re very proud of the collection and it’s a great way for Misusu newbies to get to know us a little. We have 7 different freebies to choose from: Max tee - Origami boat artwork - Olli lined pants - Culottes Tutorial - Felt flower artwork - Olli summer shorts and pants and the Rowan Tee. And to make sure everyone has a pattern in their size range to work with, we’ve just updated our Rowan tee to a bigger size range up to size 164! Now everyone can join our challenge! YAY!
Updated Rowan Tee pattern - size range 62 -164
So how to enter? Well, the rules are really simple: download a free pattern, artwork or tutorial from our webshop and create an awesome look with that freebie and share it on social media (or in our Facebook group) using hashtag: #misususewingchallenge
You’re free to combine other (paid Misusu) patterns (and from other brands too) in your look with one of our freebies. Just make sure your look consists of at least one Misusu freebie! The FREEkin’ Sewing Challenge will run for 4 weeks - from Saturday July 21th to Saturday August 18th - giving you enough time to come up with an amazing look! Get creative, give yourself a theme, sew from the stash, create a pattern hack - the possibilities are endless!
To help get your creative juices flowing, I’ve teamed up with 29 amazing inspirators. They have all prepared a look to inspire you and let me tell you, their collective creativity has BLOWN me away. During the challenge, every day one of the inspirators will be featured on our social channels to show you their take on the challenge. But don’t feel threatened, they are just here to inspire you! Next to that, they will all host their own giveaway of one Misusu pattern on their assigned day. That’s 29 chances to win in total! So why don’t you give yourself a head start by following them on Instagram? See the complete list of contributing inspirators below!
Well, I keep talking about the challenge. But what is a challenge without a grand prize?! With One Thimble (Digital Sewing Magazine), Stoffenfeest (Thank you Jen and Guus for sponsoring!) and your's truly being the main sponsors, I'm also throwing in a gift card to a fabric store of your own choosing. At the end of the challenge, a first, second and third place winner will be selected by our team of judges.
To top things off, if you crave to combine one of our freebies with one of our other patterns, you can get it at a 15% discount during the challenge, by using the following code at checkout in our webshop: MISUSU15
