Today is the start of a very fun community project.  We're going to make a rainbow!  You see, it's only about 7 weeks until the start of Season 16, and there are 7 colors in the rainbow.  So let's sew a rainbow together.  

Remember this adorable Sew The Rainbow look from Season 14 by Bonnie of Bonnie and Blithe?

Each week, from now and continuing for the next 7 weeks, you are invited to link up any children's clothing creations you've sewn where the main color is the color of the week.  You do not have to sew anything new, but you are welcome to!  (I know I've been eyeing my stash and all the colors I could use.)    By the time we're finished, we'll have created a rainbow of children's clothing!

Here's the schedule:

April 9 - 14 RED week
April 15 - 21 ORANGE week
April 22 - 28 YELLOW week
April 29 - May 5 GREEN week
May 6 - May 12 BLUE week
May 12 - 19 INDIGO & VIOLET week
May 20 - 26 RAINBOW week (link up something rainbow themed!)

At the end of the last week, there will be a random drawing, and someone will receive a gift certificate.  

Use the hashtag #prpsewsarainbow on social media to spread the word and help other people find Project Run & Play and sew a rainbow too.  Let's make the biggest, most colorful rainbow of children's clothing we can!

Each week we'll also have some fun color-themed inspiration and feature some of the link ups too!

If you're sewing along, we'd love for you to grab the HTML in the box below and put it up on your sidebar to let everyone know you're sewing along with Project Run & Play!

  1. The link to the Stonehenge post is from a 2015 sewing contest post. I thought items were supposed to be created for this competition and not reusing items we've made in the past?

    1. To encourage participation, that is not specifically stated in the rules at this time. It could be something the designers consider when they judge the sew along however!

  2. Gah! I was on vacation as this was posted! Maybe next time!
