Here is everything* you need to make the #sewalittlehappiness Summer Sampler just like the one that Sarah made.
Sarah says....."At the beginning of first COVID 19 lockdown in March 2020, I thought it would be a good distraction to start a community project, to make a hand sewn sampler. I wanted to incorporate all my favourite techniques into my sampler.... hand embroidery, applique, English Paper Piecing and Hand Quilting. I named it the #sewalittlehappinesseverday sampler and I shared my ideas and grid on my blog, along with some suggestions to get people started. You can read my original Blog post HERE. Throughout 2020, I was thrilled to be joined by hundreds of people across the world who embarked on their own samplers and on Instagram alone there are over 2500 posts on the hastag!
As the pandemic progressed and more and more people became aware of the project, I started to receive many requests for a printed kit. So, inspired by my original sampler, I came up with the idea for a series of seasonal kits, which I will be releasing throughout 2021......the Summer Sampler is the third in the series, both the Winter Sampler and Spring Sampler are already available HERE.
I wanted to include some of my favourite things that I enjoy throughout the Summer months...... picking strawberries fresh from the garden, making a daisy chain, laundry drying on the line, walking around the garden first thing with my morning cup of tea and picking just a bud or two for jam jar display, breakfast outside and of course, happy days at the seaside! Wishing you lots of happy stitches, Sarah xo".
