Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

The voting is done in the Make It Perfect Show Your Stuff competition and my wrap skirt didn’t come in the top two places. On the plus side I did get a handful of votes, which means a handful of people really liked my skirt, so that’s pretty cool. Thanks again to Toni at Make It Perfect for running the competition and picking my skirt in her top 10.

While you can’t necessarily resolve to win a competition or giveaway, you’ve got to be in it to win it so this year I figure why not give it a go. I’ve been trying to leave more comments on my favourite blogs and say thanks to the generous people who share their stories and projects, and have been interacting with the crafty community a bit more. Along the way I’ve entered a few giveaways and I actually won one!

A big thank you to Rita at Red Pepper Quilts who hosted this particular giveaway, she has a wonderful blog showcasing her work with beautiful bright, clean photos and regularly hosts some really great giveaways.

A bigger thank you goes to Clare at Fabric 2 Go who sponsored the giveaway with a $50 voucher for their online store.

I’m thinking I might have to put the voucher towards some flannel (and cute mini pom pom trim) to make some comfy PJ pants now that the weather has cooled off. Paired with the Sweet Dreams pattern from Make It Perfect, we’ll definitely have a winner.

I really do love this skirt, it’s so comfy and was quite easy for me as a beginner sewist to make. I’ve got my pattern pieces saved so it should be really quick to make some more, I’ve even got the fabric picked out for my next one, time to get cracking I think.

Go check out the entries in Toni’s Top 10 over on her blog and vote for your favourite, if that just happens to be entry A – The Versatile Wrap #1 thanks for your support!

And just for the sake of a giggle, this is what I now think of whenever I see this skirt – Portlandia, Put A Bird On It
