Wooohooo! The challenge that, of all the challenges in the Historical Sew Fortnightly 2014, I am most excited about is coming up. It’s Challenge #19, due Wednesday 15 October, and the theme is HSF Inspiration: be inspired by something another Historical Sew Fortnightlier has submitted for a challenge to make your own creation for this challenge.
Obviously I’m super excited about this challenge because seeing what everyone else creates, learning from their creations and research, being introduced to new patterns, tutorials, and garments is one of the best things about the Historical Sew Fortnightly.
You can use anything from the HSF ’13, or anything that has been submitted for Challenges 1-18 in the HSF ’14.
The only thing you have to do (other than stick to the general HSF guidelines, of course), is to acknowledge your source (or sources) of inspiration!
So where to begin?
There are blog posts linked through each challenge page on the Historical Sew Fortnightly 2013 page.
And blog posts linked through each challenge page on the Historical Sew Fortnightly 2014 page.
And there are at least 41 albums of inspiration on the Historical Sew Fortnightly facebook page.
Go browse! Revel in all the deliciousness! Catch up on all the bits of amazingness you may have missed over the last year and a half!
And if you see something wonderful, even if you don’t use it as your inspiration take the time to tell the maker how fabulous it is! 😉
The one problem that people may have with this challenge is too many choices!
To get you started, here is Felicity being inspired by some of my HSF creations:
Granted, sometimes she is just inspired to fall asleep on them!
