Join us! A group of us from PatternReview.com are going to participate in the Burda Challenge for 2015.
Each month we will attempt to make at least one garment from that month’s magazine (January garment from the January 2015 Burda magazine). You can also opt to stick with the month but use whatever year you want. (January garment in January, but from whatever year you choose).
Because it’s fun, and motivating. It’s easy to be motivated when you know others are waiting to see your monthly garment. It forces you to use your current magazine and perhaps delve into unknown territory. I know I’m doing a different type of silhouette this month just to try it out.
The Badge and HTML
Look at me trying to get all creative! I made a badge! It’s not very artistic or technical, but feel free to steal it and post it on your blog if you want. It links back to this page so other people can read the “rules” and see why we do it. I will also link to other people’s blog so we can see what everyone else is doing. I think it’ll be fun. (If someone wants to make a more blingy badge, go for it. I just wrote a whole blog post yesterday about how I’m not creative!)

(Please, please let me know if you blog somewhere and it’s not listed. I got a lot of names and a lot of blogs, and I pulled some from PatternReview. Like Mrs. Smith, I know you have a blog, I read the darn thing, I just can’t remember the name!!)
Let the fun begin! If you want to be added to the list, let me know in the comments. Some of you I know and other I don’t. Be sure to give me your blog name so I can link to it! Some of the above information I took from PatternReview, if you don’t want it up on my blog or if I screwed it up, let me know!!
Sounds like a great plan - I'm going to sign up! I mostly use Burda patterns and need a challenge to keep my momentum going. I really enjoyed the pattern review bee and have been looking for something else to participate in:)
I'm in. Im going to do all 2015 issues.
sounds like fun!
I'd love to give this a shot! I'm NancyD and my blog is sewinginsurfcity.blogspot.com. My challenge will be that I often can't get the magazine until pretty late in the month. But I can always back up a year!
I would like to give this a try. My blog is lifeamidstthechaos.wordpress.com.
Problem is, I'm so computer illiterate I can't figure out how to get the badge on my blog.
I'd love to give this a shot. . .I just joined the Pattern Review contact for Activewear but I have quite the collection of Burda mags to choose from -- thanks for letting us know about this Challenge!
Oh, I am in! I want to sew from my Burdas, mostly the old one! Hope I can make this challenge!%)
I love Burda patterns and this is just the motivation I need! I blog at https://saturdaynightstitch.wordpress.com
I'm going to give this a try. Not sure I have a January magazine, but maybe this year's still on the shelves. And I already know what I'm doing next month, this is a great extra push not to slack :)
I'm in - I'm currently working on the January project so I'm off to a good start!
I'm in! Sounds like a lot of fun! My name is Shawnta and I blog over at shawntasews.com
I'm joining (Levone from PR). To really challenge myself I'm attempting to do all 2015 patterns.
I'm in as well! My Burda magazine stash goes back to 2004😊! Sadly I don't have a lot to show from all that! Hopefully I can get something done this year. I am currently working on the Bargainista Fashionista contest but will try to squeeze a Burda make in this month!
I'm so excited about this challenge, hopefully I can keep up!
I'm in! www.seecarmensew.wordpress.com
I'm up for the challenge! Here's my brand new blog BackpacksandaBernina@blogspot.com
I'd like to give this a go :) I have started a blog too to hopefully keep me motivated http://voyageofcreativity.blogspot.com/ thanks :)
My blog http://sewingsveta.blogspot.ca/
wow! this sounds like fun :) I would love to join :) I've already made 2 dresses in last month using patterns from Burda magazine from the January 2014 and 2013 :) does that count? firstname.lastname@example.org
I love this challenge! I have a stack of magazines that need some attention! http://thepincushionchronicle.blogspot.com
I love this challenge too, only learned about it today, but I am definitely sewing along! Great!
Thank you for organizing this, Dawn! It is going to be fun and great motivation. And I love to see other's interpretations of the BurdaStyle patterns. Sometimes the magazine's versions are cray-cray and not wearable. Ha!
Oh, this would be a great way to actually use my Burda magazine patterns! Can I join you, albeit late?
I'm in too ! I just join in the PR challenge thread.
I have lots of Burda and I blog at http://uponathread.blogspot.fr/
Just meet your blog. I'd like to join in this challenge.
I'd love to join this challenge. I've done similar challenges by myself without too much success, so maybe this will keep me on track. I've started my blog at http://plaidthursdays.com.
