Wear Happy Color / Sew Happy Color 2020

A week ago I came out with my Book “Wear Happy Color: A Guide to a Colorful Wardrobe.” I made this book because last year I held the first “Sew Happy Color” challenge and this year I wanted to give everyone something they could use beyond just that month, and without needing Instagram. I have plans for a bigger hardback book, but until then, I hope this guide helps more people explore the color in their closets!

This year, I wanted to open the challenge to more than just sewists, and so I teamed up with Anna Roslily (below) to reach a bigger audience! Anna is a bright, colorful, genius ensemble-creator and the sweetest thing ever. And now we have #wearhappycolor2020 and #sewhappycolor2020 so that everyone can participate!

This post is to give you some more detailed info on how to participate and what the prizes are!

Post your outfits whether store bought, handmade, or both and use one or both hashtags to be entered into the prize giveaways (on Instagram). Your outfit DOES NOT have to be handmade to use #sewhappycolor2020 !! But that prize is sewing-related, so only use it if you want a chance at free fabric!
