I know boasting is a sin, but if a sewing blog is not about blowing one’s own trumpet, then what is it about?! 🙂

A couple of posts back I wrote about this dress which I made to enter the Tessuti Gridlock Sewing Competition. You simply have to check out the Pinterest page which features all of the entries. There were some amazing, amazing entries.

The (very worthy, IMO), winner of the $1,000 AUD prize was Sandra’s coat. Cute, right? A fantastic frankenpattern, if ever there was one.

Anyway, the ever so generous Tessuti people have decided to also award five entrants with a $100 Tessuti voucher….and one of those entrants is me!! After seeing the standard of some of the other entries I really never expected to win anything, so I am absolutely thrilled.

Check out the details of Sandra’s coat and see the other 4 runners up from this link.

Until later….bye from a very happy me!

I love to shop, but I also love to sew my own clothes, and am currently on a mission to improve my (fairly basic) dressmaking skills. I confess to going into shops and being outraged at the prices of some (not very well made) garments (is it an age thing?) and think "huh, I could make some thing at least as good as that for less" (is it something to do with coming from the Indian subcontinent?) So this blog details my sewing endeavours, both good and bad....I love to nosey through other people's sewing projects....now everyone can get to see mine.

    1. Hey Sam, don’t know if you will check this/ get this, but just tried to leave some comments on your blog and it wouldn’t let me…the security thing wouldn’t come up properly to let me type the words in…will try later on…just letting you know I stopped by to admire your handiwork!

      1. Thanks for letting me know you had a problem. I’ve recieved other comments today, so not quite sure what happened (and I’m not very good with the technical side of blogging!) Thanks for stopping by anyway.
