Celebrate the BOY: an online collaboration with Dana of MADE where we do only boy-themed blog posts for an entire month, including tutorials, roundups, and giveaways from a number of guest contributors. Go to the Celebrate the BOY archives to see all of our boy-related posts!

Spring Top Week: a fantastic online contest for readers here on on Made By Rae that is designed to encourage selfish-sewing. Enter a top you’ve made for yourself for spring into the contest! A panel of judges helps narrow down the contestants, a final reader vote is held on the blog to determine a winner, and there are always great prizes! Check out the Spring Top Week page for more information.
