Congratulations Cate (Fabri'cate) on being chosen as the Winner of the 2013 Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition.
Some of the things the judges said were that they loved the Fish Puppet as it looks original, contemporary and useful and is beautifully shot and that Cate was really able to stretch her trimmings pack, sewing several pieces together in order to have enough fabric for the tail fin. The 3D fins are such a good way to show off all of the little pieces... Ashley from Film in the Fridge said a she would like one for her son.
Cate made her Fish Puppet with an Umbrella Prints Super Girly Trimmings pack. It is amazing what you can do with such a sweet tiny packet of fabric, some broad cloth and your imagination!
Thank you to Lianne Rossler, Jodi Levine, Fiona Dalton and Ashley Newcombe for being our discerning judges this year... it is always such a treat to have a helping hand on the not so easy task of choosing a winner from all of the amazing projects that have been made.
Most importantly Umbrella Prints would like to give a big hug to everyone who entered, without your amazing support and creativity this would not be one of our favourite months of the year when we get the pleasure of having these sweet and amazing projects pop up in our inbox everyday.
We will follow up this post over the coming weeks with a few special mentions as it seems a shame to not take a closer look at the hard work that has gone into all of the projects you can see here on the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2013 Pinterest board. We look forward to seeing you all back here next year for the 2014 Competition but remember you can grab some inspiration and Umbrella Prints fabric all year round.
