  1. My favorite challenge is the repurposing challenge. Seeing so many ideas really had me looking at quality fabrics in clothing that I no longer wear in a new way. When experiences change you in a positive way what more can you ask for in a challenge.

  7. My favorite was the man's dress shirt challenge. It was sweet seeing my daughter in hubby's favorite work shirt that had gotten ripped.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love "inspired by" challenges where the inspiration has nothing to do with clothing. I think inspired by art would be my favorite of them all.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Boy's week for sure, any season.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think the inspired by art challenge...there are just so many possibilities and interpretations that go with it!

    ReplyDelete

  12. I have a lot of favorite themes but I love the Repurposing, White Sheet, Winter Wonderland, and Inspired by Art themes the best. I also like the idea of an 'Inspired by Literature' theme and I'd like to add a couple of other ideas: Nautical, Sea Shore, Under the Sea, In the Garden.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Repurposing theme for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love them all! My favorite is the winter wonderland theme because everyone creates so many detailed layers.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I liked the candy one, it was so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I enjoyed the repurposing challenge. It's always great to have inspiration to bring life to those old clothes in your closet. I also enjoy seeing the remixes. I have a hard time thinking outside the box when I have a pattern in front of me, so it's always nice to see what others can create.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I personally love the holiday wear look because I like to have an excuse to do some fancy sewing ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like the one that showed the favorite era/design period. Those outfits were stunning! For my own sewing, I like the repurposing challenges and the remakes of popular patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I loved the theme from last falls challenge that was art inspired! Some folks came up with some amazing styles!

    ReplyDelete
  23. A toss up for me between the white sheet challenge (so many options, and the entries were all so different) and of course the up-cycle challenge (since most things I make are re-purposed from something else!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I sew a lot for my kids, so I really liked the Candy inspired challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I liked the back to school challenge

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. While I never go to sew along with the white sheet challenge, it looked like the most fun! nicolebomeli (at) gmail (dot) come

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorites were The Men's Dress Shirt Challenge & Repurposing (loved the Stylish 70's and Breakfast at Tiffanys).

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's got to be the shirt challenge for me too. There's something so heartwarming about the littlies wearing an outfit made from Daddy's shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I loved the white sheet challenge. The possibilities are endless.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like white sheet, boys week, and art inspired. Do I get kicked out of the drawing if I choose three instead of one? If so, I choose white sheet, with its endless possibilities!
    with love,
    -Jo

  38. It's got to be the shirt challenge for me too. There's something so heartwarming about the littlies wearing an outfit made from Daddy's shirt.

  39. My favorite is always the re-purposing challenge. I love to see what unusual things the designers use to make their clothes and accessories.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It is hard to choose! I LOVED the Art inspired challenge, but this one we just did (Winter inspired) is pretty up there on my list. I like the broadness of the subject and seeing how everyone had their own interpretation of it.

  41. All of the challenges are fun! My favorite is a tie between choosing a decade and then the personal style challenge! your mystery prize sounds pretty amazing!! Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think Inspired by Art was the first challenge I saw, and it hooked me right there. The entries were amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Personally I loved inspired by candy, there was a lot of thought and colour in the outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The white sheet was one of my favorites. Actually the grey pintuck baby dress was my favorite from that challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  45. inspired by the movies was an especially fun challenge, and definitely one of my favorites :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I loved the inspired by art challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the pattern remixes! I'm always amazed how everyone thinks outside the box... errr... pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  48. "It's all in the details" was a great one.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Art inspired week has been my favorite, and not just because I won the sew along. I loved so many looks created that week! I have started looking towards art for sewing inspiration more and more. I agree with what someone else said, we should totally have a literature inspired week sometime. Like No Big Dill's Once Upon a Thread series.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm torn between Refashion, Inspired by Art, or the Shirt Challenge

    ReplyDelete
  51. Last season's Sweets/Candy Inspiration challenge was really fun to see! The Movie Challenge was my runner up fav!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the signature look. It tells you a lot about the designer, and the designers always perform best.
    Also, every outfit I see, inspires me, so actually, I love them all ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I always love the challenges for Holiday wear. I love little kids getting all dressed up! And its so fun to see how differently people dress them for holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I like the repurposing challenge. I love seeing what people come up with!

    ReplyDelete
  55. love the repurposing! though I like the boy one for inspiration as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. It's not very creative, but I like the "my style" category. Even after all these seasons, I'm not sure what that would be for me. It's great to see all those designers discover themselves that way.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love seeing the my style one too. It's fun to see what everyone likes.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the signature look week, always. It's fun to see the looks and say, yep, that's them!

    ReplyDelete
  59. That's hard....I would have to say my favorite has been the art challenge. I had a full on lesson with my kids where we learned about the different artists and when we chose Picasso for our look, they all learned how to draw and color pictures in his style and I absolutely loved it! Aevarie was very proud of her Picasso dress and seeing her so confident and proud made it one of my favorite outfits I've made!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I LOVED the Inspired by art. Such creativity and thought went into those. Of course they're always fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hmm, winter wonderland or signature look.. Choices choices.. I'll go ith winter wonderland!

  62. Every season I look forward to the signature look challenges...I love seeing what everyone comes up with; so inspiring and so personal.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I really liked the chevron one! It was great to see the all-stars turn a chevron into something interesting and new.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I like the ones from an era--40s, 50s, whatever. Those are so fun to see made into kids' clothes :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I definitely always love the remix theme. But that's my favorite to do anyway hehe. So I would also say the inspired by art theme. It was really fun trying to narrow that one down. Also I have to agree than an inspired by literature theme would be AMAZING.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Of the themes that I sewed along with, I loved the pattern remix, but as a looky-lou I was amazed by the "inspired by art" theme!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I loved the "Let's go to the Movies" challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I liked the Winter Wonderland and White Sheet challenges

    ReplyDelete
  82. I loved the white sheet, inspired by candy, and winter wonderland themes... If only my sewing machine hadn't broken at a very inopportune time, preventing me from sewing along!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I just started following the contest so week one's Winter Wonderland theme is my all. time. favorite! ;) Thanks for this incredible opportunity!! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  84. The White Sheet -- it was a completely blank slate...

    ReplyDelete
  85. "White Sheet" and "All in the Details"!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Movie challenge. Jessica's jacket was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Inspired by art. Although I do have to admit that I was inspired by the Repurposing. Love your challenges, someday I will be organized enough and have enough time to enter. Your contestants are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  88. The white sheet - in my opinion it requires so much more creativity, and the results are doubly inspiring for that reason!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Sewing through the decades, that little GraceKelly!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  95. I really loved the most recent Winter Wonderland challenge. All of the entries were so great!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I loved the white sheet challenge. This was the challenge that I found Project Run and Play, and have loved it ever since. It was so amazing to me the things the designers did with a white sheet, it helped me start to think outside the box a little more when I sewed.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My favorite was from the All Star season, "It's all in the Details." I have always thought the that best part about sewing is putting in the details that you can't buy in ready to wear so it was fun to get some new ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm stuck between three: Men's Dress Shirt, All in the Details, and Signature Style. I really like seeing the re-purposing aspect and how creative people can be. I'm also a very detailed person and love love love seeing all the little nuances that go into designs. But I also really look forward to the Signature Style week as that is when personalities seem to shine brightest.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I loved the white sheet challenge, but any of the repurpose challenges are great!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

It seems like a huge test of creativity and is just awesomesauce :) I do really truly love the upcycle challenges as well though...that is so close to home and something that I started following PR&P for; for inspiration for upcycling/refashioning clothes for my children.

    ReplyDelete
  110. the candy one was a huge favorite of mine!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I've really enjoyed the signature style theme.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love the remixes and the best was the Junebug dress remix, mainly because of the beautiful rainbow "every colour in the box" dress that Danielle Wilson designed. That dress is still imprinted on my brain, actually everything Danielle did in that season was amazing. Nothing (for me) has beaten that dress yet.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I like the white sheet challenge, the re-purposing, and the decades.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love the remix challenges! And also the upcycle challenges even though those seem a little harder to judge.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  131. Definitely repurposing - I think so many of us cut up our old clothes into stuff for the small people that it feels familiar! I do also like signature style, it's where we really vote on the designers true approach...

  134. I loved to sew along so many of this contest themes, it is hard to pick just one...
    I think I would have to choose "It’s All in the Details", but only because my 3dpleats where selected as the sew along winner.
    I also have to tell you I struggle every time I have to deal with last weeks' theme: "Signature Look"!

    ReplyDelete
  135. There are so many great themes to choose from! I can't pick just one favorite, but I did love the men's dress shirt challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hmmmmm, that's tough! I think the White Sheet Challenge. I loved seeing how everyone took a blank canvas and completely changed it!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I love the signature look. Watching a designer you can usually tell from how they spin a challenge what is "them" but when given free reign it's great to see what they come up with!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I really liked the white sheet challenge. All the designers went way further out of the box than I was thinking, and I was pretty impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I think repurposing is my favorite challenge. It's something I try to do a lot of, and it's fun to be inspired by the creative ways everyone else reuses old clothes items.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I can't choose a favorite because they are all so creative.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I loved the art inspired challenge, it was so neat to see what everyone came up with :)

    ReplyDelete
