Yaaaaayyy!!! I won the Wrap It Up challenge. I had the high scores from the judges AND I won the readers vote! Thank you all for voting. I won 3 free patterns of my choice from the McCall, Butterick, Vogue or Kwik-Sew lines AND 3 of the newest patterns released from the Sewing Workshop: Tremont Jacket, Florence Shirt and Bristol Top and Dress. How will I pick just three patterns?! I’m such a pattern junkie.
As excited as I am about the win I’ve got to get focused about this third challenge. This week’s challenge is to create a sewing tutorial. The tutorials are to include step-by-step instructions with photos to show the process, a supply list and a final project photo. Each of the four remaining contestants was randomly assigned one of the topics below:
– Tips on working with ITY knit fabric
– How to hem pants
– Tips on working with chiffon fabric
– How to sew a french seam
I was given “How to Hem Pants”. Maybe it’s just me but writing tutorials take quite a bit of time with all of the writing, editing, photographing and photo editing. So I have to start on this ASAP. Well I have to start tomorrow, I need some rest tonight.
Look for all of the blog postings Wednesday (September 30) morning . Voting will be open Wednesday and Thursday (Sept 30-Oct 1) and the winner and will be announced Friday October 2nd!
As always you can play along with this challenge. If you have a blog create your own sewing tutorial! Write up your own sewing tutorial (any sewing-related topic is fine.) Share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram AND email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a link to the tutorial on your blog. It must be a brand new post, please do not share previously made tutorials. A winner will be chosen at random to win a prize. This week’s prize includes a Sewing 101 book, three Kwik Sew patterns elastic and fusible stay tape.
