Hot! Colette Pattern Winners!

image from Thanks to everyone who entered the Colette Patterns giveaway over at the Sewing Circle. It was fun reading through all the answers to each of the questions posed by Debi, Sarah, Adey, Veronica and myself.

Here are the randomly-chosen winners of each pattern and their answers.

The winner of Ceylon answered the question "What's your most dreaded sewing step?"

Amanda400 writes: "Having to set up and put away my sewing machine and tools each time I want to sew. I can't wait to have dedicated sewing space someday!" 

The winner of Rooibos answered the question "What's your secret short cut technique?"

Peggy writes "I too use a rotary cutter to save time and trouble with sheers."

The winner of Macaron answered the question "What's your sewing philosophy?"

Shannon writes "It takes risks to bring a vision and that is the fun of sewing!"

The winner of Oolong answered the question "Is there anything you wouldn't sew?"

Judy writes "Well… I would never sew under garments.. Rather spend my time making something I can show off, such as a dress or an outfit."

The winner of Parfait answered the question "Fast forward to December 31, 2011…….If you were to look back on 2011, what is one word you would love to say that would describe your sewing or the garments you've made over the year?"

Kat writes "Different.  Yes, I know, not the most creative word, but for me this year is all about making things that I haven't tried before, branching out into new styles/eras/fabric choices/colours, and experimenting a bit more with both my sewing and my wardrobe!  So, 'different' to what I've typically made over the past few years, and also 'different' when you view the years worth of sewing all together – a mash-up of styles!  (Or that's the plan, anyway.  :-)"

Congratulations to Amanda, Peggy, Shannon, Judy & Kat. Please contact me so I can get your details off to Colette Patterns!
