This season on Project Run and Play has been a doozy. Not only did I sew along, but my good friend Karly from Paisley Roots was asked to be a REAL contestant! I was over the moon for her!
Then, to top it all off, she won!
You can imagine the excitement I held for her. I mean, we've both been following the competition as sew-a-longers for many seasons and have really bonded over our mutual love to sew. I simply cannot describe how proud I am of her talent and heart. Each week we'd see the looks go up and I would be rooting her on and oggling all of her work.
To be a part of her "Thank You Giveaway" was a really fun way to end the PR&P season!
The winner of Prize Pack 3 where my Mae & Co. outfit + bib set was listed, was Tia. She's been blast to chat with allowing me to pick the print that would be used.
I chose this green arrow fabric I picked up while in California on vacation last year.
For the bib I chose a coordinating (but not overly matching) grey and black grunge-y cotton fabric. It's another favorite... see a theme here?
To keep it in line with the outfit I added the topstitching in the same green color. I like how it pulled everything together.
Finally I was able to put my favorite touches on it. I so enjoy folding everything nicely, adding tags, and wrapping everything in yarn. It's such a "completed" feeling after it's done. I can't wait for her to receive it!
