January Theme – Polka Dots!

Happy New Year Sewcialists!!  I’m Marrie, and I blog over at purlsandpleats.  Now that it’s January, it’s time to get back to the monthly themes, and this month is polka dots!

I’m a polka dot lover, and have been looking forward to breaking out my dotted fabric this month.  Polka dots are great because they work for almost any pattern you can imagine.

Even outerwear:

There’s also pajamas and loungewear, and for the bra-makers out there, maybe some pretty polka dot underthings:

If wearing polka dot clothing isn’t your thing, maybe a polka dot bag or a cute throw pillow:

I hope I’ve got you thinking all things polka dot for this month.  If you sew along, remember to add your finished projects to the Flickr group, and use the hashtag #polkadotjanuary on Twitter and Instagram.  Looking forward to seeing lots of spots this month!

Happy sewing everyone!
