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

Congratulations to Gosia and Dawn, both lovely bags. Thanks Deby for hosting the competition and sharing your wonderful bag pattern. I will definitely be making more.
Thanks Ali. I enjoyed it enormously. It was especially nice to see what everyone is sewing with my patterns, and how creative everyone is!
It was a fun contest and caused me to make two nice bags that I will use! Thanks, Deby!!
Congrats to Gosia and Dawn, that foxie clutch is amazing.
Thanks Deby to give us the opportunity to make this great clutch and see so many variations
I thought they were all very nice and creative. Thanks for hosting such a great contest, Deby! And congrats to the winners!
Love that fox!
I Love the fox bag very cute. Congratulations to Gosia.
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.
Oops, sorry about the link, I corrected it. It WAS a great contest, I really wasn’t sure anyone would take part, then when the entries started pouring in I was just so amazed. Everyone sewed a much better bag than mine!
Thank you! I actually thought your owl bag would win – it was a similar idea and came out amazing!
