Our Grand Prize Winner is: The Naked Spool! This entry combines two projects from the book (the flag garland with the book cover). Melody writes, “I like her choices (the book cover is amazing) and all the little touches with the book pages and washi tape.”


Our 2nd Place Winner is: Gemini Stitches. Melody writes, “…What I love is that she changed the project from a paper wallet into a fabric wallet, and styled it for men. I really wanted people to be able to adapt the projects for their own purposes and she did that beautifully.”


3rd Place Winner: Mary Moon Designs: This project gives you so much impact with such simple materials! We love these fantastic embellishments.


4th Place Winner: Mary Emmens: Melody writes, “This one is perfect to me; she took a simple starting point (the inside out box), and fully adapted it for her gift– Rice Krispy treats. She couldn’t find her decorative tape, so she made her own fabric tape, and added that awesome little window so you could see the treats inside. I really love this.”
