Blogger Category

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.

Readers Category

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.

I just want to congratulate Deby for having this contest ( it was really fun to sew all those little bags ), everyone else who sew along ( love to watch what you came up to ) and specially Gosia ( your fox is lovely ).
Just a quick note Deby, I’m not sure how much it matters but you linked my red velvet clutch there not the owl :).
Thanks again to everyone involved in this.

Thank you! I actually thought your owl bag would win – it was a similar idea and came out amazing!
