Surprise Sewing Bee
It’s been about 2 years since I first decided to try my hand at a sewing contest. That’s long enough; I’ve decided to enter the Pattern Review Surprise Sewing Bee contest. It seems pretty intense a lot like Project Runway. I’ll surely be eliminated in round one, it’s all in good fun right? I won’t be hurt. It feels like I’m blindfolded in front of a firing squad not knowing the exact project that needs to be completed. The element of surprise should bring out our best creation.
Below are new for this contest and you can click here for all the rules that apply (Submission Deadline in bold red font).
