Announcing the Cut-and-Sew Design Challenge Winners

OCT 25, 2018 updated May 27, 2021

Don’t let the size fool you! While a fat quarter of fabric might be small, the designers packed as much creativity as they could into this week’s design challenge canvas. The final cut-and-sew projects will have you threading your needle to get started on your next handmade project. Designer gaiamarfurt is celebrating the season early with her winning cut-and-sew fat quarter, Christmas Doll. We also can’t forget selmacardoso  and sarah_knight who took home second and third place respectively with two cuddly cut-and-sew characters. 

But don’t stop the DIY fun here! Shop the top 10 cut-and-sew designs, a perfect gift for little ones learning to sew this season.
