Projects and Patterns You Can Make for the Boutique

Select a project link in the left column of the table below to view the pattern and instructions. You may make any project(s) on this list that interests you, using any fabrics and notions from your own stashes. If you have your own pattern(s) for an item(s) you would like to make for the guild, just get the “okay” from Michelle Barry at mbarry@tampabay.rr.com. Remember that we are allowing only 15 of each specific item to be sold at the Boutique. We are looking for quality items, not quantity.

To maintain inventory control, please contact Michelle via email or phone to let her know the project(s) you have finished. When we reach a maximum of 15 for each item, the project will be removed from list below and another project will be added. You may turn in completed items to Michelle Barry, Roni Hunt, Joanne Rodriguez, or Dee Anderson at any of our Sew Days or meetings/circles.

Thanks to all Princesses who participate in this fundraiser for our guild’s education fund.

**Note: The pre-made kits for the below projects will be passed out at our first Sew Day.
