I'd like to give a personal thanks to Rachael and Vanessa for all the hard work they did to make this sewalong so successful. It was Vanessa who came up with the fabulous idea. And Rachael really out did herself, she deserves the lion's share of credit for the awesomeness of the event. I'm just thrilled I got to be a part of all this crafty goodness.
We hope you enjoyed this sewalong and that it inspired you to sew up some shorts for you and yours!! It's been a blast watching all of your creativity this month! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Thank you!
