Back to School Month + Monthly Challenge | The Simple Life Pattern Company

Back to School Month + Monthly Challenge

Back to School Month

It’s officially July. For some of the U.S. this means that you have one month left of summer. And then it is back to school come August.

Some of you may be sad. Sad that summer is coming to a close in the blink of an eye. Others may be like me, jumping for joy at the thought of the kids back in school.

Either way, you must be wondering: what am I going to make the kids for back to school?

Whether you are sewing for a baby going to their first year of daycare, a toddler going to pre-K, or a child going to their first, or second, (or third, etc.) year of grade school, we’ve got you covered.

The Monthly Challenge

All month long you can sew along with us while we celebrate our favorite back to school patterns. Follow along as we post inspiration from our amazingly talented team for your back to school makes. And don’t forget to sew a long and enter in our monthly challenge for your chance to WIN a $20 credit!

Our #SLPcoChallenge has had a facelift. You may remember this as our Weekly Listing Photo Challenge. We’ve revamped the challenge to be even better than before.
