STITCHING with Some Odd Girl! new challenge!

Good morning craftily Odd friends! Welcome back to another challenge, and to those who joined us for the Paper Piecing challenge last time around, THANK YOU! There were some amazing entries, and we're thrilled you came along to play!

Let's kick this school year off with a challenge that will require you to dig out some additional crafty tools (besides paper trimmers, scissors, glue and your coloring medium of choice). :)

We want to see STITCHING on your projects!

It can be sewn by machine, hand stitched, or even faux if that's the way you want to go! Or combine any of these for a nifty result!

And boy oh boy, have we got some inspiration to share! But first, remember our little tag challenge in our Facebook group? Whether you played along or voted, you'll probably remember this talented lady. Give a warmly Odd welcome to our September Odd Girl, SANDIE!

Sandie Dunne
blog: ...exploring The Crafty Side of Me
My name is Sandie and I live in Ireland with my hubby. I am a SAHM to our 4 kids who range in age between 5 and 19. I have been crafting for about 6yrs, starting out with scrapbooking. I bought my first 'cute' stamp on a whim and was instantly hooked. I enjoy all types of papercrafting from off the page projects to cards. I am thrilled to beguest designer for Some Odd Girl. xx

Sandie wowed us with her first Guest Odd Girl creation, using Kiss a Prince Tia

and here's what the rest of the gang came up with....

Elena used Tweet

Leah used Sigh Mae

Caz used Punk Kaylee

Sarah used School Mae

And if you're not inspired by any of that (which would be crazy, really), then have a peek around the blogs of our Odd Girls and you'll see LOTS of gorgeous projects that feature stitching of some kind.

SO! You wanna play, right? JOIN US! We can't wait to see your STITCHED PROJECTS, and you can start on them..... NOW! Play along by Tuesday, September 20th at midnight EST for your chance to win some shopping goodness at - remember to link to your project, and link BACK to us on your blog post in order to be eligible for the prize. And you don't have to use a SOGgy, but if you do, you get an extra entry! Faves from this challenge will get badges to proudly display on their blogs, and they'll also be PINNED on our new Pinterest board!

And off you go! Happy crafting, Odd Friends, and we hope the school year is off to a great start for those of you who are students or parents of students!
