Well my friends, with February over i think it’s time to wrap up the Briar sewalong!

There are still a few variations i really want to share tutorials for – but i think i have to cut myself off at some point or else i’ll be posting about nothing but Briars all year long hehehe. Never fear though – there will still be some coming, i think we’ll skatter them over the next few months as time permits :) I still really want to make the hoodie sweatshirt, and i theres a different style of dress variation i’m dying to make – plus we will also have an awesome variation tutorial from one of the pattern testers! Darn it i love variations!

Here’s a little round up of all the tutorials we covered during the sewalong!

And if you haven’t already picked up the pattern – today is the last day that you can get 10% off with the coupon code BRIAR at checkout!
AND if you haven’t had a chance yet – don’t forget to upload your Briar’s to the Megan Nielsen patterns Flickr pool! There’s tonnes of ideas over there (i spied someone who made a Briar from woven fabric, so awesome right?!)
AND AND we’ll keep updating the Briar pattern Pinterest board with lots of variation and styling ideas as well as cool fabrics and projects you’ve made.
That’s it! Thanks so much for sewing along with me!!
