I wanted to remind you all about the Sugar Plum contest we have going on. There have been so many beautiful versions and we want to showcase all of them! A reader voted contest seemed like a fun idea…especially since I was going to London and going to pick up some extra special prizes
Here is a reminder of the prize:
The winner of the contest will receive any two Lolita Patterns of their choice (and we have some good ones on their way soon!) and the special bonus prizes I picked up in London.
Now I am here to tell you what the bonus prizes are! While in England I think I went to nearly all the fabric shops in the greater London area! I found this gorgeous beaded fabric while shopping with Simona at Saeeds Fabrics in Walthamstow, recommended by Karen of Did You Make That.
It is hard to show the texture so I am showing you several photos. It is a greenish blue and brown beaded in an animal print fabric. The texture is incredible…I have never felt anything quite like it. It is truly beautiful and exquisite. I picked up 1 yard for the very lucky winner.
And what would a trip to London be without stopping at Liberty?
I picked up a beautiful Liberty sewing notion kit for the winner! It is a needle case filled with everything you could need for your hand sewing needs. The outside is a beautiful floral Liberty print and I have taken a picture of each “page” of the inside so you can see all it comes with!
Aren’t these prizes wonderful? I am so excited for the contest! As a reminder, anyone who has made a Sugar Plum can enter! Post your pictures to our Flickr page and make sure to tag them Sugar Plum. The contest is open until December 2nd at midnight Pacific Time Zone. Don’t have a Flickr account? No problem! I will feature the entries on the blog so everyone can vote, so if you don’t have a Flickr account, you can send the pictures to me and I’ll make sure they get entered.
If you made a Sugar Plum and have pictures posted somewhere and I don’t know about it, please send me an email! I would love to add you to our Pinterest page of Sugar Plums found in the wild!
I am so excited about the next pattern. The testers look drop dead gorgeous in it!!! It is currently at the printers so I hope to have it available soon. I predict it will be our most popular pattern! With the holidays, the delivery might be slightly delayed, so I might pre-sale it before it arrives if the printing and shipping takes a little extra so you all can get your copies ordered before the holidays. Hint: There might be a holiday special!
A lot of people have emailed me about their finished Sugar Plums so I would love for you to send along pics or post them to Flickr so you can be in the contest! Enter your Sugar Plum and you might even get the next couple patterns for free if you win! Not to mention this fantabulous fabric and Liberty needle case!
Still need to grab a Sugar Plum so you can enter the contest? You can get the PDF version here in the shop to start making it immediately! Don’t forget if you get stuck, there is always the sew-along to help and you can email me! I answer emails at all hours so don’t hesitate to contact me.
