Top 12 for So You Think You Can Sew Competition


Before I announce the Top 12, I wanted to thank everyone that has been involved in the contest thus far. The Judges, the sponsors, and the contestants that submitted projects! I am so happy that I didn't have to choose who would make it to the Top 12! It would have been way too hard! So thank you judges!

Here is how the top 12 was chosen. Each judge chose their very favorite project and that project/contestant automatically made it into the top 12. For the remaining spots, I combined the other favorites of the judges and the ones that were voted more than once by the judges made it in as well. So if you are in the top 12- that means that you were either the very favorite project of one of our judges or else you were on a list of favorites for more than one judge. Make sense? I hope so:) 

So without further Adieu... Here are your Top 12 contestants for So You Thin You Can Sew! (They are in no particular order:)














Addendum: One of the contestants had to drop out of the top 12 so the next up in line was chosen for the top 12 and it was: 


If you are one of the top 12- please leave me a comment with your email address so I can contact you with all of the details asap! Thanks!

Aren't these projects amazing???
I was so impressed with the turnout and the talent that I saw with all of the entries. Thanks again for everyone that entered the competition. I want to make sure that you all know that just because you didn't make it into the top 12, doesn't mean that your project wasn't awesome or "good enough"! We had to narrow down from 127 entries to pick only 12 so our judges had a super hard time picking!
If you didn't make it into this round of the competition, still come back in January and vote to make sure that the most talented sew-er (kinda looked weird without the hyphen ;) wins! I don't want this to just be a popularity competition... We want the best of the best to win it!:) 

And for those who didn't make it to the top 12 this time... get working on a new project to submit for next round because this summer there will be a summer edition of So You Think You Can Sew! That's right! Details to come later!


Last but not least, I want to thank all of our AWESOME sponsors!! Make sure you check all of them out and show them some love!!
