After a busy holiday season, it’s easy to feel like you need a little (or a lot!) of time to yourself in your design or sewing studio. This January we’re helping you do just that with a friendly design challenge in partnership with Rhianna Wurman, the original creator of #doodleaday on Instagram and designer behind ellolovey. Throughout the month, join us in our Doodle-a-Day challenge around the theme “Self Care”. Whether you design with pen and paper, an iPad and Procreate or draw a quick doodle on the whiteboard at work, we hope each day’s prompt inspires you to slow down, relax, and prioritize yourself and the things that make you happy.

Before you get started, get to know Rhianna in her Meet the Designer interview!
