Cool Pics From "Look What I Made" Contest (Part I)

     Wow! "Look What I Made" really was a great customer-driven contest. 

     Thanks to all the people who took the time to enter Owl & Drum's debut show-us-your-creativity competition. More than 20 of our customers made wonderful items from a wide variety of fabrics bought in our midtown Tulsa store. 

     The range of cool-looking creations - from colorful clothes and curtains, to quaint quilts and bold blankets - clearly demonstrated how talented our customers are. But we knew that already. The submitted photos just prove it!

     Today, we are excited to share some of the photo entries we received from our fun-loving customers. We think you will agree that they made some lovely, unique items. Early next week, we will post the remaining photos. 

     So, here goes . . . Enjoy!    

The two pictures above showcase the hair bow and bow-tie designs by Tulsa resident Elizabeth Balloqui of Teal and Co. Elizabeth used fabrics from Michael Miller and Westminster Fabrics. 

Jemellia Hilfiger of Norman made these cute mother-and-daughter dress and skirt out of Melody Miller's Ruby Star Vinyl for Kokka Fabrics. We love this fabric just as much as Jemellia - and it's been a big hit! 

Our contest winner, Whitney Ellsworth, made the above two creations. Whitney, a Tulsan, hosted a baby shower for a lucky friend and made these adorable gifts and wreath. She used Riley Blake's yellow chevron fabric and Moda Fabrics' Grow With Me in gray.

Kammy Pitts of Tulsa, who works under the brand name Kamsel, designed and created this super-cool cluster headband. Kammy is a big fan of fabrics and patterns containing mushrooms, so she simply could not resist Shroomy by Monaluna.

Anne Brockman wanted to add some flair to her kitchen, so she whipped up this fun mixer cover. This was the Tulsa resident's first time to sew curves - and it looks like she did a great job. The mixer cover was made with Joel Dewberry's Hexagons in canary yellow.

This modern, chic baby blanket was made by Jamie Catlett of Tulsa. Jamie is a seasoned quilter and she loves working with modern fabrics. Her fabric choices for this project were spot on! The solids are from Dear Stella Designs and the back is a flannel by Moda.

Moira Forbes, along with students from her daughter's French immersion class, made this French alphabet quilt. It looks magnifique! C'est tres bon! The border and binding are various shades of black and gray from lines such as Riley Black and Alexander Henry.

Sydney Meeks, a member of Tulsa's Modern Quilt Guild, was recently fixing up her sewing/craft room, so she decided she needed cute, new fabric to make some eye-catching curtains. Sydney chose Sunday Paper by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit Fabrics - and the result looks great!

Thanks again to everyone who entered Owl & Drum's first-ever "Look What I Made" contest. We really enjoyed seeing all the inventive, colorful and cool-looking creations made by our loyal customers. Y'all are a talented bunch!

We plan on holding a second "Look What I Made" competition during the summertime. Keep an eye out for details on Owl & Drum's Facebook, or Instagram pages.

And, in the meantime, keep on craftin'!
