Contest 2016: Plain & simple Lewis coat: prize packs

By 15/11/2016Blog

Today I’m sharing an overview of the great prizes I can give away in the Plan & Simple Lewis coat category. Again I would love to thank the sponsors a lot for being part of this contest. In the 2nd category, you can sew a coat for boys. If you don’t change anything to the pattern pieces your creation will be part of the Plain & Simple category where you can win these amazing prizes:



+++ 1st PRIZE +++

Fabric package by Elvelyckan design

Elvelyckan design is one of the sponsors that always surprise me in a pleasant way. When I opened their box I was a bit jealous that I will have to send these beauties to someone else soon. Don’t you just love all these gorgeous prints? I do! Since I think a lot of them are suitable for boys too, I added this amazing pile of fabrics to the Lewis category. Thanks a lot Elvelyckan design for designing such pretty fabrics. Again I’m wondering why I didn’t sew with knits anymore lately. Time to make a change!


Private Compagnie M. workshop for two

When you win this prize, you receive a free Compagnie M. workshop for yourself and a friend. A whole day of ‘me-time’ without having to pay anything. A free paper pattern is included. Hooray!

If a foreign person wins this prize pack and can’t claim the prize, it will be passed on to the first Belgian person in line.

Fabric package by Lotte Martens

A new world to explore for every seamstress that loves a true artisanal product to work with.


Fabric voucher by Lana Lotta

Lana Lotta is one of my very first resellers and I should visit their shop urgently. I’m only hearing positive things about the shop and it’s owners. So shame on me. Note this very well: one of the coming weeks you can expect a visit from me. Who feel like fabric shopping in Leuven with me? Let’s set up a Doodle. :)

For the contest lana Lotta is sponsoring
a 50euro voucher to spend in their shop. Thanks a lot ladies and see you soon!

Fat quarter fabric bundle by Art Gallery

If you follow my blog for a long time already, you know I love Art Galley Fabrics a lot. When I asked Stefanie what range would fit best with my personal style, she proposed this range by April Rhodes. I love the observer fabrics a lot! Blue, grey and mustard are just the most beautiful colours in the world, right? We all agree on that, don’t we? Thanks a lot Art Gallery for sponsoring this amazing bundle. Again I will be heart broken to pass on these beauties…

Fabric voucher by K-bas

Although the ‘fabric shops markets’ seemed so saturated here in Belgium Mieke successfully added a new one this year. I really had to go back and have a look at Mieke’s first Instagram account post to recall when she started her business. It just seems like she’s on the market for a longer time already. K-bas just sounds so familiar already to most Belgian seam stresses. And for those that don’t know her shop yet: if you ever feel like sewing a bag: K-bas is the place to be!


+++ 3RD PRIZE +++

Fabric voucher by Julija’s shop

Julija’s shop is a legend in Belgium. She doesn’t only sell fabrics like a big selection of Nani Iro and Liberty of London, but also the most amazing selection of yarns. Now that I started a knitting / crocheting course, I just can’t resist visiting her shop from time to time. Not mentioning her gorgeous designs, books and a new magazine. Thanks a lot Julie for sponsoring the contest!

Rachael is one of these people that I would love to meet in real life. I think we really have a lot in common. She’s always so sweet and enthusiastic. That’s what I like so much about people. When I was participating in the PR&P contest, Rachael was one of the competitors too. That’s when I really got to know her well.

And recently she started selling my pattern too. So if you live int he US and feel like buying a paper version of my patterns: Imagine Gnats in the place to be!


Fabric pack by Bobby Sewing

Joanna’s shop is the closest fabric shop to my house, so I must not tell you that I visit her quite often. Oops! Whenever I have a project in mind and I need some fabrics or notions I visit her shop. She always has a fabric that I love, the perfect fabric for my projects and when you know I’m rather picky, that’s good news! Sometimes I spot a fabrics in her shop and when I still like it after my 3rd visit, I buy it. I don’t have a very big stash of fabrics… Does that surprise you?

Together with Joanna we selected these fabrics. I added some buttons from my personal stash. Just because I think they match well.


The Kokka fabric I used myself to make a simple gathered skirt. One of our favourite skirts ever! Combined with a handmade cardigan and a 2nd hand tee of course.

A perfect solution for people like me that love Instagram but are too lazy to sort the 1000’s of pictures I have from my girls. Oops!
