How to vote in Designin’ December 2020!

These sewists live the spirit of Designin’ December.  They all have seen something, somewhere that they would probably never actually purchase and that doesn’t stop them from having it – because they make it for themselves!

“Why buy when you can make it yourself – better and for less money?”

By the way, I hope those of you listed below leave a comment with your blog name, if you have one, or any other social media you would like to share.  I have listed mostly Instagram here, but would like to make sure I am following you, as I am sure others would like to too!

Here are the TWENTY-SIX entries, in no special order.
