Here we are at the last giveaway prize announcement! It’s bittersweet; I’d like to give something away EVERY day, but then it wouldn’t be special anymore, would it? Well, maybe it would, but I’d run out of prizes real quick.
Thanks to everyone for participating in Day 12 and answering our question, “Do you alter thrifted garments?”
Many of you make small alterations to most of the things you buy, secondhand or otherwise. Personally, I love thrifting for one-of-a-kind finds, I just can’t keep up with my ever-growing pile of ‘to alter’ garments!
Today we have THREE winners: Valerie Crawford, Rosemary Griffis and Carla L. Reale!
Congratulations! You three won a copy of Sew it All Volume 3! In addition to 50 fun projects and 19 free patterns, you’ll learn useful skills like mending, fitting and ruffling. Use these skills to alter a secondhand garment into a fabulous fashion find–For more on transforming ready-made garments, see Marisa Lynch’s episode, “Thrifty Couture.”
