Today is the day when Heather and I finally announce the winners of the Sew Frosting Challenge.
First, let me say that you blew us away with your talent, effort, and love for sewing things that are simply fabulous. You made the decision so hard. I hope that even if you didn’t win, you enjoyed participating and sewing something that pushed you a bit out of your comfort zone. I know that for me, this was an important few months for to really reflect on why I sew and what brings me the most joy to create. I already have ideas for what I want to create next year.
And here are the winners:
