If you have been following me for a while, you might know that I love simple makes. Makes that take little time to finish, makes that can be used and makes that can be beautify with cute details. I have been working with denim this week as a part of Sew Easy Summer Sew Along for Sip Tea and EPP and it's been fun. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to sew with denim.

I am happy to welcome all of you to the first week of our Summer Sew Along. It feel a bit strange writing Summer as it is Winter here in Australia. :-) I hope you had a chance to go through your textiles and select a few items that you think you might use for repurposing during the Sew Easy Sew Along "Ideas and inspirations for working with recycled materials" for Sip Tea and EPP with Irina @nordiccrafter and Larisa @stitchingnotes.

Sew Easy: Summer Sew Along for Sip Tea and EPP. Ideas and Inspirations for working with recycled materials.
It’s that time of the year when Irina and I are ready to host another easy, relaxing and fun Sew Along for our weekly Sip Tea and EPP party. It’s summer in the northern hemisphere and many of you are busy enjoying the warm lazy days of the summer holidays so we decided to keep this Sew Along even more relaxed and undemanding for you. We hope you can join us again to learn something new and get inspired.

What is fabric grain? What does it mean to cut the fabric on the straight or cross grain? How to find the right grain especially if you work with tiny pieces of fabric without a directional pattern? Why do you need a bias binding? Keep reading if you would like to know the answers to these questions and hopefully by the end of this post you will learn something useful and helpful.

Welcome to the Sip Tea and EPP party! Irina @nordiccrafter and I are very excited to start our new adventures this year with a Mystery Hexagon Project. And as the name suggests, you will need hexagons for this sweet item that we are going to sew in unison.
I have put together a one page file for your convenience. All you need to do is to print this page out and cut out your own shapes. Please check the 1" square to make sure that the hexagons are of the right size. And one more thing - don't forget to use a separate pair of scissors for this step! :-)
Happy partying! Larisa xo
