Designin’ December 2021 – The Results Show!

So let’s get to the Results. These Results are in no particular order. So how does this work?  Everyone had the chance to vote for their favourites on my blog and on my IG.

Oh yes, the 17 prizes were randomly drawn too!

  1. Congratulations to everyone!

    1. It was a wonderful turnout, and such a variety! ❤️

  2. Joanna Vandervlugt January 9, 2022 — 8:53 pm

    Yes! Congratulations to everyone.

  3. Ah thank you so much Linda, this is a lovely community challenge. Congratulations to everyone!

    1. Thank you for joining in! I enjoy doing it. Hopefully we will see you next year too!

      1. Oh definitely!

  4. Thank you Linda for continuing on in your wonderful Designing December tradition.

    I think this year has been the best ever!

    It’s been a very busy time for me these last few months. I am applauding the efforts of all of your participants.

    I pulled out my stepmother’s vintage PFAFF sewing machine. It is some machine! It is very well built and smartly designed for use/repair standpoint. It easily rivals any of the quality/commercial grade sewing machines.

    I’ve got a leather messenger style bag project that I’d like to make and replacement upholstery for my parent’s outdoor furniture.

    Keep me in stitches!

    1. Thank you for always supporting and reading about our sewists. It is always a fun time of year. You sound like you are very busy too! The vintage sewing machine must be fun!

  5. The “PFAFF 332” is German built and if you look it up in a You Tube tutorial you will see why I am so pleased to have this machine at my disposal. Hopefully I will inherit this machine from my stepmother. I call first Dibbs, if her daughter doesn’t beat me to it! (Smile).

  6. Linda, what a great contest, so many wonderful entries! Thanks for doing this year after year.

    1. They did do a wonderful job, didn’t they! I really enjoy doing this sewing challenge I’m already thinking about next time!
