SewHip Magazine star prize...yay!!

I have received the prize I won from SewHip Magazine last August...Yay!! Behold the assortment that reached my post box this week:

It took me many, many, many emails but I'm glad I chase it up and didn't give up because I really like what I've got. None of the fabric is big enough to make clothing (which is my thing really) but I have been thinking accessories. Bags? Belts? What do you think?

I sent the photo below to the editor as I was super impressed with the quality of the magazine and the easy instructions of its patterns. I also provided some feedback from the eyes of a beginner and bought a subscription. This dress, believe it or not, was the first piece of clothing I ever sewn and only possible because the instructions were so straightforward and clear. And obviously I like to think I have some talent too ;) Totally wearable dress but I have to tell you, the sleeves are disgraceful and the stripes make my eyes hurt, if I look for too long.


  1. Congratulations on your award! It's great! Accessories are important, yeah!
    Maybe if you "break" the lines of wearing a black belt ....

  2. Congratulations on your prize, how disappointing you had to chase them so much. Yes, make a cute purse or clutch! x

  3. What a fun prize! I haven't seen your first dress before. It's fabulous! I always love a bold stripe.

  4. You finally got your prize - yay! I love the buttons - so unusual.
