Summer Sewing Series - Challenge #1

Get those machines warmed up - it's time for the first contest in our "Summer Sewing Series"!  Every few weeks we'll challenge you to make up a fast & fun sewing project.  We'll make sure the projects are quick to sew, and can easily be made with fabric we know you already have (admit it, we all have at least a small stash of fabric).  When you're done all you'll have to do is email us a picture, and we'll choose the winner!  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

For our first project, how about a jewelry hanger to help you get organized?

This one is from our friends at Sew It All, but there are tons of free patterns on the internet if you need one!
Now, The Rules:

1. Pick out some cute fabric (it can be recycled from something too), and take a picture of it before you cut it up.

2. Stitch up your jewelry hanger.  Remember to put your own spin on it - we love creativity and color!

3. Take a picture of your finished project and email BOTH photos (fabric and finished project) along with your full name and address to by Friday, June 28th at 5 pm Eastern time.

4. The projects will be voted on by Arrow staff, and the winner will be announced here on the blog on Wednesday, July 3rd.

Creativity counts!! Please make sure you follow all of the rules!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at
We'll be sending the winner one of our awesome new task chairs as seen below:

Good luck everyone!


  1. Good luck to all participants. I am going to skip this one as I already have a chair :)!

  2. I can't find the pattern, can we have a direct link please?

    1. Missy, it was in their magazine. Feel free to make up your own pattern or use a free one from the internet.

  3. don't really have much jewelry so I'm skipping this one and will wait for the next challenge.

  4. So, it's July 4th and winner was to be announced yesterday ~ :-(

    1. Sorry about that - I didn't have any internet access on Wednesday! Just posted the winner. :)
