Pink is my favouritest colour, but just about everything in my stash is either not pink or something and pink.  Nothing really that's majority pink

ME, me I'm in. I have some coral pink linen jersey to make a top, and there is more pink jersey in the stash. I may make some more tops for me or maybe for my granddaughters. We are all blonde and like pink, at least I'm not sure about the baby, she hasn't stated a preference.

I'm in too, I have few pink things in the stash, though more likely to go for a tee shirt or trousers than the faux silk special occasion outfit!

I wear a lot of green, especially dark teal/jade shades.  I am wanting to make more clothes this year.  Maybe one will come up where I can use green  :)  I am currently laying out to make the Drape Dress pattern (free with a magazine)  :)

Had planned to participate but not sure if the fabrics I had earmarked from when the monthly challenges were originally published are sufficiently 'pink'. :(  I'm sewing from stash mostly this year so don't want to buy any pink fabric.

I have fabrics which have quite a lot of pink in them but probably not a majority of pink. :S What a shame!

Here are some various shades of pink, I'll do some photos of things from my stash I count as pink and see if it sparks ideas with others.

The more people join in the better from my perspective.

I didn't think I had much pink, but I pulled these out of my cupboard.

These are the fabrics from stash which look most pink.

This arrived yesterday from The Textile Centre, lots of one way stretch, enough for a dress

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Also arrived yesterday.  Woven synthetic but fairly substantial weight, enough for a dress or top.

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
3m of P&Q weight cotton.  Looks more like red and black to me.

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
Jersey fabric but not much stretch.  Found on the sales table at craft club, back in the day, for pennies.  Probably just enough for a tee shirt
