Thank you to everyone who voted in the Make It Yours Contest. It's time to announce the winners.
The winner is number 5 – Gosia from As I Sew who sewed this awesome fox bag. She had to work out how to piece together the fabric and how then to turn the bag once she had made her design. It was a close run thing right through to the end and a special mention goes to Georgia at I Believe I Can Sew for her great Owl bag. Seems you all like bags in the shape of animals.
You'll be hearing more from Gosia, because she'll be writing a guest post here in the near future and we'll be collaborating on a bag pattern – I'm fascinated to learn more about her ideas.
The winner with the most thumbs up votes is Dawn who rallied huge support from readers as well as family and friends to get the most votes in the readers category with her Oriental style bag with crystals and a frog closure, in a beautiful blue silk brocade.
And not to be forgotten, from everyone who voted, the winner is Linda R.
I'll be in touch with all of your to arrange delivery of your prizes.
Thank you to everyone
