Fabricista Fashion Challenge 5 Winner Announcement!!

Wow! We were blown away by these Fabricistas -- they all really pushed themselves to make a great fitting pair of jeans and are so proud of their accomplishments. I think everyone can relate to these ladies -- tried making jeans, had bad results and put the project away never to be seen again. But they were pushed to try it again and wow, the jeans turned out amazing! 

No matter how the challenge came out in the end, these ladies should be praised for their accomplishments. Great job!!

Let's see how the final challenge went:

Grand Prize winner:
Marica from Overdrive - Life After 30 -- you are the grand prize winner of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge!!! 
She has won a 6-month spot on our Fabricista blog, $25 a month for one year to spend on fabric at FabricMartFabrics.com, a Julie's Picks Membership. (A $350 value with media exposure.) PLUS special prizes from the judges - her choice of any one pattern from Closet Case Patterns and a jeans making kit for her next pair of jeans! She will also receive Angela Wolf's Delila pattern.

We will have a bio/Q&A post the 3rd Saturday in October and then her first official blog post will be November 18th!

The second place winner is: Carmen from See Carmen Sew!

She has won a $100 gift certificate to spend at Fabric Mart, plus a 2018 Julie's Picks membership. (A $150 value.)

The third place winner is: Danesha from Classyfied Life

Again, congratulations to all these ladies as well as other ladies who participated throughout the entire challenge! I hope it really "challenged" you to push the limits with your sewing and try new things!

Great job ladies and thank you so much for participating!!

That's a wrap! Thank you to all our readers, participants and judges. I love that we can get together as a sewing community for some fun and to challenge eachother to try new things. 

Now that the challenge is over, we'll be getting back into the groove of our regular Fabricista bloggers. They have had some well deserved time off on the blog! You'll see some familiar faces in the coming months, but you'll also see a few new faces (including Marica from this challenge!) Stay tuned for those newcomers to the blog. (Most of them you will see in November.) 

Happy Sewing!
Julie

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
