Sensational Sewing Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello everyone!  I am so sorry there was no sewing challenge last month.  April was very busy for us – too busy in fact!  Because I was unable or make anything or organize any prize, I took a break and now have some news about the challenge for you...

Sensational Sewing Challenge won’t be a monthly challenge anymore, I will host it every now and again for fun.  If I receive over four entries, there will be a voting poll to determine the winner, otherwise, the winner will be chosen randomly as normal.  A prize will also be offered for each challenge.

Onto the new theme...

Your new challenge is ‘ANYTHING GOES’!!!  Doesn’t that sound like a fun and easy one to enter?

The prize for this challenge is a metre of beautiful and colourful butterfly material!

The guidelines for this challenge are as follows – please be sure to read them before linking up:)

(Please note that unless there are more than four entries, there will be no voting poll.  The randomly selected winner of the challenge will then be announced in a separate post when the challenge has closed.  If voting does takes place, entrants will then have the photographs of their projects posted separately after the challenge has closed so that others can vote for them.  Voting will remain open for one week after the challenge has closed.  The winner will be announced afterwards.

Sensational Sewing Challenge is open to anyone of any age.

You may enter once only using your blog. 

If you do NOT have a blog, then you are more than welcome to email your entry to me at  I will post your entry and link up for you.

Please make sure you link back to my blog so that others can find out more about the challenge and hopefully enter too.

There must be at least one photograph of your finished project in your post (or email).

Acknowledge where you got your inspiration or pattern from.

NO back-linking allowed please.

Link up using INLINKZ (be sure to leave the actual link to your blog post so that I can find your entry easily and leave you some love) below.

Comment on one or two entries around yours if you can – everybody loves comments:)

Entries close on the 31st of May.

I will post the prize anywhere in the world!

There you have it – the rules for entering in Sensational Sewing Challenge ‘Anything Goes’.

Now for my sample sewing project...

Gabrielle, my little blue-eyed sister, turned five on the 17th of April.  I put together this apron for her as a gift.

 A big felt flower jazzed up the apron and gave it a colourful and fun appearance, perfect for a little girl!

And there you have your sewing challenge for the month of May!  I hope you are inspired to get creative and join in the fun!!  'Anything Goes' really does mean anything goes, so be sure to try your hand at something, however large or small.  You don’t have to be an experienced seamstress to enter in this challenge:)

Blessings for the month of May!!
