Polaroids have a special place in my heart and sing to my soul. I am the proud owner of 4 polaroid instant cameras! You can imagine my delight when I realized that I could turn all of the little bits and bobs of hoarded prints into something fantastic. That the scrap that I created from cutting into treasured prints did not have to get tossed in the bin! I *know* you guys are with me on this! Somethings are just too precious to toss!
I am hosting this free Sew-Along with Megan and Meg of Urban Sewciety. Our goal is to provide you with all of the information, guidance, and support that you need to create fun and whimsical Polaroid Blocks that you will be able to use in a variety of projects! You will learn how to piece the Polaroid blocks themselves, different techniques for setting them into larger blocks, and be inspired to create a finished project with them that you will love. We are hoping that in the meantime, you are able to connect with a community of sewists on social media who have varying skills and a range of interests.
