Are you addicted to Pinterest? Are your boards overflowing with pictures of that perfect throw pillow or charming curtains or other home decor that never seems to get made? Or is there a home dec tutorial that you've been meaning to try? Then the Inspired By Pinterest: Home Dec Challenge is the contest for you!
Sew something for your home inspired by something you've seen on Pinterest or pinned yourself. The inspiration pin(s) can be a tutorial, a retail item or series of pins/mood board.
The project must clearly be inspired by the original pin(s). List changes you have made and what features you have kept.
The project can be sewn from a commercial pattern, but simply pinning that pattern does not qualify as an inspiration pin for the purposes of this contest.
Review requirements: A picture or link to your inspiration pin and your finished project must both be included; they can be put into the same picture.
