The winner of our contest to fit a pattern for a hanging ornament onto a single swatch-sized piece of fabric is Australian artist Julie Lynch, who won our <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/92"> roller derby</a> competition just a few weeks ago. Julie's Festive Birds Hanging Ornament actually includes a quarter-yard's worth of patterns in addition to the swatch-sized bird pictured on the upper left above. These ornament patterns, by the way, also make terrific projects for novice sewists!
