☆ COMBO CONTEST ☆

 

CONTEST ☆ Over the years, many of you have told me that you hoard my patterns, but have -GASP- (and I truly mean: “gasp”) never stitched a thing with them. Seriously people, I have to steady myself on someone’s shoulder when you say that. So, get those Sublime Stitching patterns out! I know you have a lot of them. You tell me all the time that you do! There's no hiding now.

CHALLENGE: Sublime Stitching mashup! I want to see the most original, stitched-up combination of Sublime Stitching patterns evar! (Let’s say a “combination” means 3 themes.)

Want some suggestions? Okay, how about mixing up Daniel Johnston (like, the frog) with Garden Variety (maybe some bugs) and Carson Ellis (with pretty birds)! Or…pinups stroll around in the flowers with cats? Ooh- I know- hawks, vultures and giant squids hold an epic battle in outer space! You can also check out the Embroidery Gallery for inspiration.

FABULOUS PRIZES ♥ 

1st Prize: $100 Gift Certificate from Fred Flare! OMGSC.

2nd Prize: $50 Gift Certificate (and crammed goody bag) from Sublime Stitching!

3rd Prize: Sewing Patterns from Amy Butler!

Honorable Mention will receive this PDF from Joey's Dream Garden!
