Tell The Bobbin Who's Boss - And The Winner Is...

For the past 12 months you’ve been telling the bobbin who’s boss in our aptly titled #tellthebobbinwhosboss competition. It’s so exciting when my inbox pings and I get a new entry from one of you crafty lot. You’ve been entering in droves!

And it’s no wonder when there are awesome prizes up for grabs: a six issue subscription from the good people at Love Sewing magazine, plus a cute beginners’ sewing kit and a £10 gift voucher from ourselves. What’s not to like?

Our superstar winner of June’s competition is Jenny Day.

Jenny came on one of our first ever SEW YOUR OWN TUNIC courses. She made a stonker of a tunic on the day of the course but put those new found skills into action (you’ve gotta use it or lose it!) and made another tunic dress at home as soon as she could. Her slick choice of floral fabric and her well-honed sewing skills caught the eye of judge, Helen McLaughlin (editor of Love Sewing);

"I love Jenny's choice of fabric here. Its bold, vintage-style print fits the tunic's cut perfectly to create a great summery retro look. She also gets extra points for being adventurous enough to work with a large print and matching it perfectly at the shoulder/sleeve seams. I want this dress!"

Well done and congratulations to Jenny! A well deserved win. If you’d like to enter our competition this month all you have to do is send me a picture of your sewing project (it can be hand sewn or on a machine, anything goes), or tweet me a picture of it using the #tellthebobbinwhosboss hashtag . Also let us know your name and which Ministry of Craft course you attended.

Now get stitching! I look forward to seeing what you’re made of!
