Winners of the Terrific Tanks Contest By AlexisW on 5/12/14 1:45 PM

The votes are in for the Terrific Tanks Contest!

Just in time for summer, this creative contest asked participants to sew a basic tank with unique embellishments for a more personalized look.

From embroidery to beadwork, these dazzling tops were decorated with intricate accessories and judged based on the creativity of the entry.

Who won the Terrific Tanks Contest? Lets meet them now!


First Prize Winner: Alpine Queen for Colette Patterns: 0003 (Sorbetto)

Congratulations, Alpine Queen!

Alpine Queen says, "This was a rather fun challenge. I don't feel I'm creative, I don't have access to lots of embellishing crafty stuff, I had to come up with something using sewing techniques. Even finding trim that would work wasn't easy. But for a casual summer top, how could I go wrong?"


Second Prize Winner: beanchor for Butterick: 6129 (Trapunto Rev. App. tank)

Lovely top, beanchor!

beanchor says, "This was my first time trying the trapunto technique and I really like it. The contrast between the raised puffy shapes and the negative space of the reverse applique adds a depth I really appreciate."


Congratulations to everyone who participated in this contest!

We would also like to thank the Contest Manager, SheBear0320.
