Boy's Week Winners and Sewing Through the Decades Announcements

Alright, it's another big day with loads of announcements.
So let's get down to business!
First of all the winner of BOYS WEEK is Danielle from My Sparkle with her "Little Man Tuck" design.  (So adorable.)
And as for our at home sew along winners...this week we had a tie!  (We couldn't believe it---but with all the awesome boys clothing that was uploaded to the Flicker group we are happy to be giving out more that just one prize!)  So with our further ado our at home sew along winners are:
 You & Mie AND...Pinafores and Pinwheels.  Two very different looks---both super great styles!
Congratulations you two!  Both of you will be receiving $25 to the ever awesome Fabric.com.

And now for the part we hate...saying goodbye.  Not that any week is going to be easy but seriously---how do we let someone go who shows up with designs like this?  Not only are Jessica's designs fantastic but her photos are wonderful and her children are beautiful.  (How could anyone not love this picture?)
I know we will miss Jessica's style and will definitely continue to follow her over at Sweetie Pie Bakery.  Thank you Jessica for sharing your talents with us.

*********
Because today is Monday it is the beginning of our 3rd challenge:  Sewing through the Decades!
The idea is simple---choose a decade and design a children's outfit based on the fashion trends during that era.  Easy huh?  It can be for a boy or a girl.  It can be fancy or casual.  AND it can be from any decade you like!  (I can't decided which decade I'm going to go with...)

If you are sewing at home and entering the Flicker group contest remember that you have to have sewn the item since Christmas and that your photos need to be in the Flicker group by 8:00 Friday morning.  Good luck!  We LOVE seeing what everyone is making!

Ok friends.  I think that is everything. 
Now, if you'll excuse me I've got to get sewing!
Enjoy the holiday!
