Zero Waste sewing kit | Plastic-free sewing challenge

Start of the challenge: February 29, 2024. Duration: 5 months. Project: 11 sewing projects to reduce your day-to-day use of plastic. This kit includes all the materials needed to take part in the Zero Waste Challenge, an initiative that we’ll be collaborating with @nairamkitty for the next six months (from February 2024 to June 2024). In this challenge, @nairamkitty will share her experience through 5 video tutorials that will guide you through making 11 simple sewing projects designed to reduce plastic consumption in your day-to-day life. The PDF patterns to make each project are included in this kit. A QR code is included on the label where you’ll be able to download the sewing patterns.
Look for our Sewing-Along Katia Fabrics Facebook group and join this Zero Waste Challenge SAL. You’ll have support, guidance and help in 6 languages: English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, and Italian, so that you can complete the challenge. Every month, we’ll share one of the projects with support videos in the group. The projects you’re going to be able to make are: a food cover, a cutlery cover and serviette, a bread bag, shopping bags, snack and sandwich bags. As well as a set of make-up remover disks and wipes. Join the challenge with @nairamkitty & Katia Fabrics to discover a new project each month.
What is a SAL?
A SAL (Sew-Along) means to follow the same sewing project at the same time as other people, during the same period of time. Which really means, “an online meeting point” where sewists from all over the world can meet; learn something new or a different way of working, for example, a sewing technique that you didn’t know; help other people to continue with their work thanks to your experience; but, above all, a SAL is sharing your time and your passion for sewing.
