You little elves are sneaky! (Banner Contest Update)

Feeling Stitchy Banner contest - sewing pixies

I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty of calling you "elves" but you certainly are crafty! :) Yesterday I was thinking of postponing the competition deadline because there were only 8 entries... all really, really good entries, but I had a feeling there would be a few more... maybe you were all busy with summer activities. Lo and behold, this morning I see 15!

2 Day Extension: for last-minute crafters!

Maybe some of you are last-minute crafters (like me)? People who stay up all night the night before a deadline, anxiously crafting away. People who stare at their half-finished masterpiece sadly, thinking, "if only I'd started this eight hours earlier..." Does anyone need an extension? If so, I am offering an extra 2 days to complete your masterpiece. Remember, you are welcome to enter more than once, and we welcome all skill levels! Can we get 20 entries in this contest in 2 more days? I think so. Remember the cool prizes? Come on, last-minute crafty peeps, and stitch our banner! :)

Here are some more fun and talented entries to inspire you:

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. Oh, bless you, sweet woman!! I am that last minute stitcher you wrote about, and I'm ever grateful for a 2 day extension. ;)

  2. They are all so wonderful!!

    I'm quite jealous of some, such great competition.

  3. Now you tell us! Why did I have to stay up late last night to finish it when I could have had an extension?? why? Why?? WHY???


  4. These are all great. Wow such talented crafters!

  5. Thanks for the comments, everyone. They are really appreciated.

    Floresita deserves a medal for all the work she does providing fun for everyone. :)

  6. Wow! Floresita especially! No, but they're all great. Question: how do you all get your stitches so even? I am sooo impressed!

  7. Bah! I would have spent more time unpicking the bits of mine where I wasn't happy with the stitching (certainly not my best but all I could do in the time) but there have been so many beautiful entries you will have a hard job.

  8. i feel like i just found heaven!
    so inspiring so lovely so wonderful so fun!
