Yesterday I received an email from Fiona at the Sewing Directory, telling me that I had won 3rd prize!
My prize is £50 to spend at Search Press, a leading publisher & distributor of the finest art books, craft books & needlecraft books.
How exciting!! Having all that to spend on lovely books and not feel guilty about it!
My '3rd prize' winning tutorial for this Christmas Stocking, suitable for beginners to make, can be seen on my other blog - Sew Good.
I made the stocking from a piece of linen, some vintage scraps of pretty floral cotton and an old cotton sheet for the lining.
I took photo's of each stage and wrote the instructions so they were, hopefully, easy to follow by someone new to sewing.
Now I need to use the pattern and start making some stockings to sell in my (blog) shop , on Folksy and on my stall at the Christmas Fairs I have booked.
