Congratulations to Lorraine Nicoll!
In April we had 192 entries for the Hobbycraft Make of the Month Competition! Thank you for all of the amazing projects that we received.
Lorraine Nicoll was our deserved April make of the month winner with her beautiful handmade waistcoat. Celebrity crafter and guest judge, Stephanie Weightman, commented :
‘Congratulations to this month’s winner, Lorraine Nicoll! I just love that the waistcoat has been created to be worn to your wedding, how romantic! I also love the map lining, it gives a nostalgic vintage feel that is very on trend at the moment. My husband, Karl bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas and I have only just got round to using it, and I have to say I’m hooked! Especially as I began my crafting career behind a sewing machine – it has renewed my love of handmade clothes and home decor embellishments. You can see some of the things I’ve been up to on my face book page, including a giveaway for a scented button heart! ‘
Here’s what the winner told us about their make :
‘My fiance has always wanted a map lined waistcoat. I bought 100% wool plaid and map patterned cotton. Using a pattern from the new great british sewing bee book I was able to create this waistcoat for him to wear at our wedding. I finished it off with pocket watch buttons to add a bit of personal style.’
