…Wait and see. First you have to listen to me rambling on.
I would just like to say how ****ing Grateful I am to all of you. And to Debi for hosting this week. I was worried that I wouldn’t get any entries. I’m not exactly well known round here and I thought I might end up begging people to take the patterns.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. Fifty one people made the effort to come on over and leave a comment! You are all the best and I wish I had fifty-one patterns to give you all one each. Actually I do have at least fifty-one patterns and I am definitely planning on giving more away, but I’d like a little time to sew them myself as well first, if that’s okay?
Anyway, back to the draw. I’m afraid I could not be bothered to try and figure out the whole random number generator thing so I did it the old fashioned way – numbers in a hat, allocated on where you are in my comments list. Okay, a wash bag, not a hat.
And to make it completely unbiased I got someone else to pick the numbers out.
I had to redraw a couple if the pattern had already gone to someone whose number had already been picked, if you get what I mean. Anyway, without further ado, the winners are as follows:
McCall’s 2075, the jumper, goes to the gorgeous ELlin at ellikitty. I will definitely be heading over there to check out what she does with it.
Butterick 9941, the 60s shirtdress goes to Nikki on the other side of the world. If you’re not too jealous check out her blog here – Nikki’s Stitches – she already has the perfect fabric lined up.
McCall’s 7815, the dress with the gorgeous lace border is off to Ashley at Craft Sanctuary. I loved her Peony by the way, I saw it on Burdastyle when I was just about ready to give up on mine and it inspired me to tweak it and keep going.
McCall’s 9072, the jackets, trousers, shorts and culottes is also off to the other side of the world – well done Ellen, whose wonderful blog is here – Button Lover.
And finally, the most popular pattern by far, the lucky winner of Colette’s Peony is Brandy at A Series of Vintage Sewing Attempts (I refuse to put the ‘unfortunate’ in there, because your attempts are anything but unfortunate).
Congratulations to all of you! I’ll be in touch shortly, and please please let me know what you do with them. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
