I have been wanting to sew something for myself for a long time now. The last time I sewed something for me was when I was pregnant with Noah, that's over 8 years ago, so it wasn't a surprise when I failed at sewing a straight line! Honestly I wanted to throw the towel in and give up! But I didn't, even though the hem on my arm holes make me stare with a certain discomposure! Promise me you wont blow this image up and study it for all it's magnificent skill work! Promise me! I am happy however, with the choice of fabric and the cute rickrack tie I added... they work fabulously together!
By now some of you should be looking at the top thinking... have I seen this before? Well you've seen the colours before - in this kit, Pink Samples!
Save: 25% off
And if this is your first time seeing the kit, that means you missed out on an incredible 24 hour giveaway held through the Vinnie Pearce Design facebook page. Make sure you are part of this fan page for future giveaways because you'll hear about it there first!
So onto my next Craft Challenge - Make Something To Giveaway, which I kind of already did before with the kit! But it wasn't what I had in mind when I set this challenge up for myself... I was wanting to stay away from designing as much as possible, instead I let myself go with the flow of inspiration that came. It's important to do this as an artist or designer, even if you have to break some of your own rules (like for me, that was not designing a thing to sell for the store) because it's in this zone you can produce some really inspiring and amazing things! Unfortunately I can't say my top is amazing or maybe even inspiring to some! But if I did not finish that top I would not have something to share on this blog post and that inspiration to create a co-ordinated kit would not have come, because it was an after thought. So I think I've made another point, finish what you start even if it's not perfect! And I'm so preaching to myself right now, because I am the queen of neglected projects! So I made this to giveaway, it's going to someone who is actually really generous and thoughtful with their time and money - my mother in-law. I hope she doesn't read this post! They're gift cards, and they were SO fun & satisfying to make!

I have two more challenges to do, Make Something To Display & Flip, which I am crazy excited about starting.
Thanks for visiting today! I hope I have inspired you to create!
p.s. I couldn't share what my kids made because it was a disaster! Maybe I'll try again another time.
