The polls are closed for this weeks Project Toddler Runway. Since Bree from Extra Ordinary Bree wasn’t able to complete a project due to power outages, none of the projects this week were going home.
My project was Orange Birdie, and this is the one I was the least confident about so far. I really like all the pieces seperately, but I think it’s a bit much all together, and it looks like some of you agreed. The birdie applique was fun and easy to do – I’m keeping that little drawing I whipped up to use again! Making a bucket hat was on my to-do list and I really like how this one turned out with the gathers.
This week’s winning project was Chelsea from Creative Momma’s Goody Two Shoes Dress. Some people were commenting that it was similar to Kelly from Sewing In No Man’s Land’s San Merino dress shown in Project Run & Play, but 1. She would have had to begin right about when that pattern was posted to have a chance of completing this in time for our deadline, and 2. I can’t imagine someone would intentionally recreate another project in a similar competition. I think it was a case of converging creativity or a similar inspiration piece. Whatever the source, it was simply adorable!
