National Sewing Month - Challenge #2

By now you should all be wrapping up those entries for our first National Sewing Month Challenge.  The deadline is Friday Sept. 14th at 5 pm Eastern!  For our next challenge, we thought we'd motivate you to get ready for the winter holidays - they'll be here before you know it, and it's always nice to be ready ahead of time! For Challenge #2, we're asking you to sew up a winter holiday themed ornament, whether it be a cute star for your tree, or something pretty to tie on to a Hanukah gift.  Heck, if Festivus is your winter holiday of choice, you could make a Festivus ornament too! 

The prize for this challenge is this awesome June Tailor set - Press 'n Cut mat, thread organizer, bobbin organizer, and Button Bank.  Just think how organized you'll be!

Now the important stuff - The Rules:
1. Make a NEW ornament for the winter holiday of your choice from fabric.  There must be some sewing involved and it MUST be a new item made specifically for this contest.

3. Take a picture of your finished project and email the photo to by Friday, September 21st at 5 pm Eastern time.

4. The projects will be voted on by Arrow staff, and the winner will be announced here on the blog on Monday, Sept. 24th.

Creativity counts!! Don't be afraid to go for it!  Remember, we'll be having more challenges throughout the month. For a little added incentive, everyone that enters all of our challenges during the month will be entered into a drawing for a Suzi storage cabinet (accessories not included)! Woohoo! 
Good luck everyone! Get to work on those entries!


  1. Woooo hoooo! I love the prize. I guess I need to come up with something amazing and get it made. (or at least make 'something" to enter!)

  2. I have a fun idea! Can't wait to stitch it up!! :)
