Make it Work Challenge - Week 2

Welcome to week 2 of our 'Make it Work' Challenge. This week our designers were asked to create something for kids inspired by their favourite designer fabric. This meant that they could use their favourite designer fabric  or come up with something inspired by their favourite designer fabric for those that use other mediums.

Congratulations to our Week 1 winner Cherub's Kiss with their Essential Wristlet. Thank you to all our designers and voters for last weeks challenge.

Now it's your time to vote for your favourite creation from our Week 2 designers. The designer with the most votes will win a 10 pack pattern bundle from Peek-a-boo patterns. You can only vote once so please choose carefully. Voting is open until next Saturday at 5pm and the winner for week 2 will be announced next Sunday.

View all the fabulous submissions from our designers below and get voting.

Melisa Jane - Girl's Pinny

Melisa Jane has made a gorgeous little pinny from the brand new Saffron Craig fabric range "Valley View." Pinny is made from a Boo! Designs pattern. For more gorgeousness from Melisa Jane head over to her facebook page here.

Pretty Practical - Reusable Snack Packs

These beautiful little reusable snack packs from Pretty Practical are made in quality Riley Blake Designs quilting cottons in the "Polka Dot Stitches" and "The Sweetest Thing" ranges. These snack bags have been made and personalised with embroidery for a special little girl called Zoe, and Zoe chose these fabrics herself! With a velcro closure, these bags also have little tabs so Zoe can easily close AND open them. These little bags have no visible seams or raw edges, inside or out, and have been lined with food-safe polyurethane laminated cotton. This means that she can use them for crackers/biscuits but also for "wetter" types of food like pieces of fruit, without the wetness seeping through the bag (yeah I know - EWE!). I hope Zoe will like her little bags and that you like her favourite fabrics! You can find Pretty Practical on the web and on facebook.

Dewberry Workshop - Sleepy Creature Softie

One of my favourite designers is Tilda, I love the classic romantic styling of her fabrics and homewares. I've chosen to use my favourite things combined in this gorgeous wee dress. Divine smocking in tones to match the dress and given some love and life with hand embroidery. Mini piping trims this little cross over pinny which would be suitable throughout the year.

Rachelle Rachelle - Frilly Apron

I love designer fabrics and choosing just one is way too difficult so what better way to showcase some of my favourite designers then with a frilly apron with removable flower brooch, which was custom made for a sweet little girl for her her arts and craft party next weekend. I've used Alexander Henry, Heather Bailey and Timeless Treasures Fabrics to make this custom made, personalised frilly apron.
