Last week was such an amazing week! Each of our contestants submitted their amazing Nature Inspired outfits. They put their all into creating and sewing these outfits, and they were truly fantastic. 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 this far are:
Becca & Suzanne from Pattern Revolution: 86
Magda from House of Estrela: 80
Michelle from Falafel and the Bee: 72
Stacy from Land of K.A.: 72
Keep up the great work ladies! Each and every one of you is amazing!
We also had a great Nature Inspired sew along! The viewer’s choice winner was: Angela from WorkPraySew!
Go visit Angela from WorkPraySew and tell her how awesome her nature inspired creation for Challenge Create: Adult Edition is!
She will take home a $20 gift certificate from The Ribbon Retreat

We are sure this week is going to be awesome too! Starting tomorrow, we get to present to you our contestants creations for Challenge Create: Adult Edition week 2: Refashion Week. Once again we encourage everyone to link up your refashioned clothing creation. Be assured that your sew along link will uplift and spur on the contestants. You have until Friday morning to link up. Voting for both the sew along and the contestants’ refashioned outfits opens Friday morning and ends Sunday morning. Are you ready for the refashion sew along? We can hardly wait to see what you make!
Here is the description for the Refashion Theme:
