Introducing SEW THE SHOW!

I miss you guys. Truly. Remember the chats we used to have about fashion and crafts and well, life? We don’t talk anymore. Maybe it’s because blogging has changed. People don’t comment the way they used to, there are so many blogs out there and so little time! Maybe it’s because I stopped asking you questions. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog, and the direction it’s going.

I decided I want to keep blogging, but only if we can start having fun together again!

So let’s have some fun. As you probably know, I love love love me some Netflix. There is something so appealing about escaping my reality and living someone else’s life for an hour (or twelve). This got me to thinking, how can I turn my love of television into something fun for the blog? Presenting, Sew The Show.

Sew The Show  |  Alida Makes

Each month I will choose a television show. I will sew something inspired by the show, or a character on the show. I’ll feature some patterns that you could use to create a look inspired by the show. Then YOU sew your own piece, and share it here! We’ll have a linky party and at the end of the month I’ll randomly choose one entry to win a prize! Doesn’t that sound fun?

As if you needed more reasons to watch t.v.

Now you can totally call your binge-watching “research”!

  1. I have to admit I’m guilty of reading, thinking some super positive thought, and then carrying on. That means no comment…. 🙁 I’m super excited to see where this goes. I’m in! We only have Netflix (no cable) so in hoping I can sneakviewingin on my phone during ballet, etc. What a great idea!

  2. Thats a super fun idea.
    I totally see myself pick the kids up from school in my “orange is the new black” inspired uniform.
    That will produce so much fun on the parking lot ( I walk my kids to school, so a lot of people will get to see it)!
    Maybe even the local sheriffs office will be called to come and join the party!

    Just kidding.

    Please add “house of cards” to your list.
    I totally want to look like Robin Wright Penn.

  3. I would totally love to join, but I’m pretty sure that whatever series you choose, will not be on tv in germany so far 🙁 well, I’ll have to stand on the side and applaud you guys 😉

  4. This is so cool. I might have to join in. You know if I can tear myself a small window of time out of the craziness of having 5 small children and trying to get my etsy shop back up and running, lol. My current netflix addiction is Dr. Who. My husband and I are both completely and hopelessly addicted. We’re watching the modern ones but once we get through those we’ll be watching the old ones. Hopefully they are just as good.

  5. Yes, Yes, Yes! This is going to be sew much fun! I’m blazing my way through Friends right now, having just finished Gilmore Girls for the millionth time. I can’t wait to see which show you pick. I will definitely try to sew along.

  6. Sounds good, we don’t have netflix so it would depend if I could watch the program in the uk but would still love to see where you get your inspiration from.

  7. sounds like fun!!! I don’t have netflix so not sure if I will participate, but I will LOVE to see what everyone puts together…

I love feedback! What did you think of this article?
