First and foremost, I must start by saying THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me throughout this competition. My family, friends, former classmates, church family, gym family and friends that I met through other sewing experiences… THANK YOU!!! Of course, the ladies of Pretty Girls Sew and the talented eight other ladies that I competed against for each round! The fourteen week journey was an invaluable one! Ultimately, I did not win the full competition as that went to the well deserved Michelle. However, I made it to the top three in the competition and gained so much more than a win!
As I was leaving comments for one of my good friends from California, I realized something. I have been sewing for fifteen years and in the past fourteen weeks done things that I have never done before! Examples of some of those challenges were sewing with pdf patterns, sewing appliques using free motion on my machine (which I am so excited about discovering), and most of all sewing with unconventional fabric! These ladies have forced me to push myself just a little bit harder and think outside of the box! There is more to come from ReDpants!
Now that the competition is over I am on to the next set of challenges! I will be back to my regularly scheduled program this week…please stay tuned!
