Do you ever wish you could travel back in time? Well, last week, if you were following along, your wish was fulfilled by the awesome way our contestants intertwined the past and the present! What a talented group of seamstresses! The way Challenge Create: Adult Edition works is that each week the judges grade the contestants for 75% of the contestants’ score, and you vote for your favorite creation for 25% of the score. At the end of the four weeks, the contestant with the highest score takes home the grand prize. But there are also 1st, 2nd and 3rd runner up prizes, so each of these hardworking ladies is rewarded! This week, the judges have had their say, and you voted, and the accumulated scores for this week are:
Becca & Suzanne from Pattern Revolution: 81
Magda from House of Estrela: 80
Michelle from Falafel and the Bee: 80
Stacy from The Land of K.A.: 80
Which makes the totals:
Becca & Suzanne from Pattern Revolution: 247
Magda from House of Estrela: 235
Michelle from Falafel and the Bee: 237
Stacy from The Land of K.A.: 230
We also had a great (Hint of) Vintage sew along! The viewer’s choice winner was Joy from XOXO GrandmaEvery go visit Joy and tell her how awesome her (hint of) vintage creation is! She will take home a $20 gift certificate from The Ribbon Retreat
2 patterns from Shop Onion
and a free copy of our refashion ebook, Not A Skirt!All the other sew along contestants have received a 1/2 off coupon for Not A Skirt! Thanks to everyone who participated in some way to make the week great! Starting tomorrow, we get to present to you our contestants creations for Challenge Create: Adult Edition week 4: Destash Week. Once again we encourage everyone to link up your destash clothing creation. Be assured that your destash sew along link will uplift and spur on the contestants. You have until Friday morning to link up. Voting for both the destash sew along and the contestants’ destash outfits opens Friday morning and ends Sunday morning. Are you ready? We can hardly wait to see what you make!
Here is the description for the Destash Theme:
Challenge Create: Adult Edition Week 4: Destash Week
Alright, we admit it, we have a little fabric habit. So if you’re anything like us (and we have yet to meet a seamstress who isn’t) you’ll be able sew from your stash this week. It’s time to open those unused patterns, raid the ribbon box (or boxes!) and get out that fabric hoard! You’ll be really glad you did when the prizes are awarded next week and the winners get to stock up all over again with supplies from our generous sponsors!! (Yes, we are encouraging you to both take from and add to the stash, but we’re sure you understand!)
