Is that an amazing list of guest posters, or what?  We'll also be using this opportunity to give you a sneak peak into Melissa's new, 5 pattern e-book, "Blank Slate Basics" which will launch on August 16th.  You can hop on over to Melly Sews to find out more about this fabulous book of boyish patterns.

Sound fun?  We'd love for anyone who thinks it sounds like fun to participate.
We have a flickr group for this event to which you can submit 1-2 photos for as many projects as you'd like.  In your photo description make sure to to reference the Sew In Tune series and tell us which song inspired the project.  If there are enough submissions, we will post a collage (or two) of your creations.

Are you as excited as I am?  Feel free to grab a button and spread the word.

Now, off you go.  Get those sewing machines humming!
