Design Competition entries

Well, the bee part of the theme (Sewing Bee, in case you've forgotten!) certainly caught everyone's imagination this month.  All but one of the designs feature bees.  

Sewing Bee Buttons

Some feature just bees:

Bee Different

Buzzy Green Bee


And some feature both:

Bees and Bobbins

Chalk Bees Admiring Zigzag Stitches

Patchwork Bee

A couple even include stitches:

Sewing Bee on Blue

Stitched Hive

Which is your favourite?  Don't forget to tell the designers if you like their design, either below, or on our Facebook page.  Next week, we'll show you the winning design, as chosen by our guest judge, Charlotte Newland, winner of this year's Great British Sewing Bee.


If these designs have inspired you to have a go at designing yourself, there are lots of blog posts giving you ideas and help with designing.  (You could start here, with Would You Like to Design Your Own Fabric?) Then you could have a go at next month's Design challenge, when the theme will be Lakes and Mountains.
