A WINNING bag out of a bra!!!

And it won!  The challenge was to make a bag out of a bra.  This was my entry judged today as the winner (there were only five entries sad to say) and all gorgeous.
I've used selvege wording on mine (as I would being the selvege queen) all with innuendo's of boobs and bras.  The one's you can't see are Dimples, Cabin Fever, Girlie Girls, and more. It wasn't easy sewing them on.. I should have spent more time and done them by hand but it will only be an ornament!
I had to put the red button here because stoopid me tried to iron the selveges straight onto the bra and it melted!!  But the little cream selvege says Cherry Hill so worked out well.  I had a lot of fun making it but why do I suddenly get the ideas at the last minute.  I so don't do late nights or early mornings.. 2am to bed, 7.30 up again.  Dumb. 
This is my lovely friend Mrs C's entry called Cherries on Top.  She can use this bag.. it is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous .. so much talent and hard work.  I was thrilled when Mrs C won a prize for best first time entrant quilt.   

This was my other challenge entry.  Remember I showed you the fabric.  Well you had to make a quilt less than a metre square using that fabric.  Mine needed quilting in the centres but I want to get that professionally done and I'm going to undo the binding and add on borders using quilt as you go method. 
And these are some of the other beautiful entries. 
I'll post the winners photos tomorrow night.  For now it's time for bed.  I have a heap of housework to catch up on tomorrow before my friend Jennie arrives from PN.  And Sunday my best friend Carol is coming to the show.  I am so looking forward to this weekend.
