A christmas win!

Well, I entered the sewing directories christmas creativity competition. I didn't win but i did come second which is not to be sniffed at! I made a christmas stocking - 

It has felty fairy lights all over it. Even my lad agreed it was 'cool'! I'll let you know if the tutorial goes up on the sewing directory site. There should be a picture of it in the winter edition of cloth magazine, in which the winning tutorial (a christmas cushion) will be published. 
I also entered some a gift tag tutorial, which would have come joint fourth but you can only win one prize and the second place one was best, £100 to spend at Abakhan (a jolly good shop for lots of crafty things). If you want the tutorial i'll see if it can get posted.
I choose lots of things you always look at but never get (like a bias binding maker thingy).

As you can see i made a load of the tags, and some birthday ones. Hoping they will sell at my craft fairs -
Kings Norton this Saturday (12th) 
St Nicolas Place 
Farmer Market will also be there
on the 19th at St Leonards 
Elmdon road,

same sort of time!

  2. Congrats on your win Helen, both you entries were fab. Will get your tutorial on the site in the next week so everyone can make one of your brilliant stockings.

  3. Congratulations! The stocking is fab - fun and bright. I came second last year with a stocking tutorial - didn't enter this year though.
    Enjoy your prize - all that money to spend on fabric, etc!!
