'Sew' Who Won? The Handmade Holiday Contest Winners!

You guys are the best! From handbags to hand warmers, we couldn’t ask for a more creative outcome in our first-ever contest collab with BurdaStyle. Two winners were chosen, in our Handmade Holiday Contest, one by your vote, and one by us! Each crafty creator is the recipient of a $100 ModCloth gift certificate. ‘Sew’ who won, you ask?

By popular vote, Cloche Hat by venusop was the BurdaStyle community favorite. Her hat was “Inspired by the 1920s and ’30s but with a more modern flair.” She chose to design this cloche to match many of her favorite ModCloth dresses, including the Ambitious Endeavor Dress, White Chocolate Truffle Dress, The Thyme is Now Dress, and The Marion Dress in Femme!

The ModCloth-selected winner was the lovely Vintage Housewife Apron, by girlofmanycolors. “I’ve made a few of these aprons before from a pattern I drafted a couple years ago. I try to make each apron different. This one has two patch pockets and a loop for hanging a hand towel. That way you always have it with you to wipe your hands while you cook. My favorite part is the pom pom trim though. Wear this apron while using your ModCloth Pear Timer and Birdie Whisks to whip up a batch of cookies!”

Thanks for all of those who participated, we can’t wait to see what your creative minds have in store for the future! Do you have any crafty projects planned for the new year?

    I thought you had to knit your item….? Or maybe I’m thinking of another contest…
