Welcome to TNT Month!
We’ll be celebrating Tried’N’True (TNT) patterns all through November, with posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
We also hope that you’ll join in by sewing your own TNT patterns and tagging us on Instagram with #SewcialistsTNT before November 30th. We’ll regram some of your awesome projects through the month, and include them all in our blog round-ups at the end of the month. (If you aren’t on IG, don’t worry – you can also email us your photo/blog link!) Please let us know if we happen to miss your pic – it’s can be hard to keep track, especially if you have a private account!
Here are some ideas for joining in:
- Do a wrap-up of your favourite TNT pattern or patterns! (Here’s some examples of this type of post from my blog or by Carolyn from Diary of a Sewing Fanatic)
- Get creative and sew a fun new version of one of your TNTs!
- Choose a pattern that worked well the first time, and make another to see if it deserves TNT status!
- Don’t have a TNT yet? Narrow down what type of TNT you want, and what features it should have… then find a pattern and get sewing to see if it works for you!
If you listened to me talk on the Love To Sew podcast , then you’ll know we want everyone to be able to join in with Sewcialists challenges! We keep the rules intentionally vague, so you can interpret the theme however you want.
Have fun, and start sewing!
[…] officially TNT month! Have you started thinking about your tried and true patterns? Head on over to the Sewcialiasts blog to learn […]
Intentionally vague? Count me in! 🙂
🙂 Nothing throws me off like super-specific challenges where you have to have an exact fabric type, pattern, and timeline! Where’s the fun in that? I just want people to sew and have fun!
Vague is my middle name (my parents were funny like that). 🙂 I LOVE this and have picked a pattern, done all the pattern alterations and sewn up V1.0 already. These challenges, for want of a better word, are fabulously motivational. Thank you for giving me my sew-jo back.Xx
That makes me so happy! Can’t wait to see what you’ve made!
Sounds great. Count me in
Cool – looking forward to seeing what you make 🙂
Just finished a top yesterday & it’s bound to be a TNT. Two more in queue to sew up next weekend. I’ll be tagging!
So excited about this theme, especially since I’ve just established my first TNT pattern. I finished my third version of McCall’s 6964 last night and I’ll be posting a photo of it on instagram as soon as can be.
[…] know, same old same old, but I guess that ties in to the TNT theme on the Sewcialists blog this month. And the beauty to me of a TNT pattern is, I can just crack on and get sewing […]
[…] The butterfly wings idea makes my think of my first TNT bra pattern – Merckwaerdigh BHS10 – which I’ve made about 15 times now. I’d like to try to design my own, but I really can’t beat this pattern. Another bonus is that it ties in well with TNT month on Sewcialists […]
[…] was TNT month on the Sewcialists blog, so this fall I’ve been digging out some of my favourite Tried’n’True patterns […]
