{So You Think You Can Sew} Week 1: Results

Welcome to the results post of So You Think You Can Sew... I am Ashley and I am your host for the competition!
Ha ha... just kidding... I won't imitate Cat Deely for the remainder of the competition, but I couldn't resist tonight! ;)

1,359 votes were cast to determine who would be moving on to become your Top 9!!!

Literally one vote separated contestant #9 and contestant #10!! So it is so important to vote for who you feel is the most talented, because it gets down to a handful of votes separating someone from moving on to packing their sewing kit up. 

I won't keep you in suspense any longer...

Here are the ladies you chose for your Top 9!!

Congrats ladies!!

Now for the bad news... We have to say goodbye to Justine from Sew Country Chick, Jill from Made It On A Monday, & Jen from Eating My Candy... Each of these ladies are super talented! I am so sad to see them go! I wish everyone could win! That would be my kind of contest! ....But we have to narrow the competition down each week until we have our winner! I have to tell you though- each of you ladies should feel so proud of yourself for making it to the top 12 out of 127 contestants that entered the competition! You guys rock!

As many of you notice, as we voted along, we were able to see the results of the voting... From now on, the voting will still take place each week, but no one will know the results until the night of the results post. Not even me! I promise not to peek until I write up the post! I wanna keep us all in suspense a little bit and I asked the contestants and the majority felt the same way. So now it will be even more important for everyone to vote because we truly won't know until it is over who is in the lead and who is trailing behind!

Ok contestants.... Now for your next challenge... 
Repurposed Items
So that means that you each have to take something existing and turn it into something else using your mad sewing skills!!!

Ready, Set, Sew!!!

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!!


We will see you all back here next Wednesday Jan. 11th at 8:00 am est for the reveal of week 2's projects!
