Ugly Sweater Block Sewalong

Hi everyone! If you’ve come from Instagram, then you’ve seen this already. Today it’s my turn on the Ugly Sweater Block Sew-a-Long Kerry from KidGiddy is running.

Kerry created this adorable foundation paper pieced pattern, and it it such a fun sew! You can find the pattern in Kerry’s shop if you want to make your own. There are weekly prizes of gift certificates from different online fabric shops each week, and at the end of the sew along there is also a grand prize. Each day you post a picture of your sweater, you are entering for a chance to win the prize of the week. The more you post, the more chances you have to win!

Of course, I couldn’t just stop at one. Oh no, I had to make the whole zoo…

And once I’d made them all, well I had to turn them in to something didn’t I! Now, if you know me, you know I don’t do Christmas decorating. I had one decoration, and it was black, and had a swear word on it, that I broke. I couldn’t even rustle up some tinsel to make my photos more exciting! So this is as Christmassy as I ever get!

But, since I don’t do decorating, and I’m not even going to be home for Christmas, I’ve decided to give it away! Just leave me a comment below, and I’ll choose someone to send it to!

Thanks for stopping by!


EDIT – The competition is now closed, thanks everyone! Congrats to Kath!

  1. Thank you! I can’t believe you’re giving this beauty away….. what a gift! I will keep my fingers crossed 🙂

  2. Oh wow! You totally nailed those blocks! And all adorable animals with Santa hats? Aahhh! I’ve died and gone to heaven!!! I think this needs to take a trip across the ocean and come live at my house! Love Love Love it!! -Carin

  3. I do like your idea of Christmas decorating. I admit I have made a cushion this year, crocheted about 8 baubles I am about to give away & have about six decorations on the table. Yes, I have gone totally overboard this year! Your cushion would fit right in.

  4. Love this! I’ve been having so much fun making my own ugly sweaters. I’ll be turning them into something soon. I think it’s hysterical your one decoration had a swear word on it. ?

  5. I’d love to win your zoo! I can’t believe you can give it away but I’d be more than happy to give those guys a new home!

  6. Tara you’re so kind to give this away! Good on you ? I don’t want your cushion but I will too have you home for Christmas ?

  7. Omg Tara!!! It’s so ugly it’s beautiful- I just adore it!! But if I win, I’d love to have it sent to a lady who I think is amazingly awesome- and I know she loves it, because she’s already left a comment!!! Man- I so wish it was cold enough here to have an “ugly sweater Christmas!!” ???
