I sent out all of my embroidery samples with a challenge. Make something out of them! Anything! As long as it’s a finished thing!
You made AWESOMENESS!
Seriously. You all made things I never would have thought of! It was so thrilling getting the photos of your finished work. If anyone is coming late to the party, you can see all the terrific finished projects here.
And now it’s time to hand out some great prizes!
The votes are in and counted. (Thanks so much to everyone who voted and all your nice comments!)
The guest judges have made their selections.
The winners have been chosen.
Drum roll please. . .
The winner of Mollie’s gift certificate is Susan Wahlman for the Sly Cat Insulated Lunch Bag!
The winners of Carina’s prize pack is Valerie Hatton for her Rainbow Raincloud Mobile.
You can’t have an embroidery challenge without mentioning DMC! They contributed a pack of their sixteen brand new embroidery floss colors! The winner of that pretty thread bundle is Rachel Kehler for her Toddler Dress with a Kitty Pocket.
This was another popular one in the Fan Favorite voting – not swayed at all by the cutie wearing the dress. 🙂 I especially love this one because it’s such a nice way to add just a touch of embroidery to make a dress really special – whether the dress is handmade or store bought.
Yep – I get to pick a winner too. 🙂 A $35 gift certificate to my shop goes to Erin of Missy Mac Creations for her Duck Duck Robot Book Bag.
Congratulations Erin! I loved this bag! Erin did a great job positioning the embroidery on the tote bag – something that can be tricky. And I loved the fabric she chose for the lining and top of the bag. But what really wowed me were the detail of the red band between the abc fabric and the robot piece – and the fussy cutting of the letters from the abc fabric to spell out BOOK BAG at the bottom.
This one’s the big prize – the one you voted for! Lark Books contributed a set of all three of Aimee Ray’s Doodle Stitching embroidery books – real favorites of mine. Those books will go to Noemi Lopez for her Chickens Pillow!
Thanks so much to everyone who participated! All the winners – please email me at blockhead[at]wendigratz[dot]com with your mailing address so I can send you your prizes.
Let’s do this again when I build up another 40-50 embroidery samples! 🙂
