*Cheers & Applause* 


You won 10 yards of Art Gallery Fabrics!!

We loved how creative Kristen was.. She used applique in a new way and even went above and beyond the equirements by using the overcast technique. Great job Kristen!

We also loved all the other entries. Some got frisky by using the "Hey Girl" meme... and others went daring  by creating an eye mask. Everyone did a great job and when we say voting was difficult we mean it! :)

Take a look below at the projects that were submited:

Good luck Ladies & Gents in this month's challenge.  Look below for details. We are looking forward to more creative entries and to see how you apply the new techniques to the challenges.

Don't forget that from next month on, we'll be joined by Bari J. as one of the judges and the fourth judge will be... THE PUBLIC! Do you have a large crowd to vote for you? Invite them all <3

Happy Sewing!
