It's finally official - I won third place in the My pattern contest! I am super thrilled and really flattered, I honestly didn't expect to place so high since my design was more conventional than many other entries. And a big thanks to all you readers who helped me pick the design. And it feels like I have already (and unknowingly) celebrated the victory - since we had strawberry cake for lunch today :)
The prize is $65 worth of software from Wild ginger. I am a long time user of their Pattern master program, but for the last couple of years I have switched more to manual pattern drafting since it's nice to be able to use a pen and paper sometimes - I spend so much time in front of the computer anyway. The program I am most excited about is Wild things vintage, looks like a lot of cool vintage designs are included.
