The Winner

About this design:

No one appreciates getting cozy quite like gnomes, preferring to nestle into subterranean caves and nooks. Although we hear they DO love to travel.... Entries will be previewed on a 21" x 18" fat quarter and should repeat.


To celebrate the arrival of cozy season, we’re offering loungewear / athleisure patterns from our sister brand Sprout Patterns as prizes for the top 3 winners of each week’s challenge!

One popularly voted grand-prize winner will receive a Rumi Tank Top sewn with white glove service from Sprout Patterns. In addition, the grand-prize winner will receive $200 in Spoonflower credit. The 2nd place winner will receive a Rumi Tank Top from Sprout Patterns, along with $100 in Spoonflower credit. 3rd place will receive a Rumi Tank Top from Sprout Patterns, along with a $50 Spoonflower credit. The rest of the top 10 winners will receive $20 in Spoonflower credit. The top 25 popularly voted designs (provided the designers are already verified sellers) will be automatically made available for sale in the Marketplace where they will receive 10% commission on every sale — no $5.00 swatch required! In addition to cash prizes, the top 10 will receive additional exposure in our email newsletters, professional photography of their printed designs, and social media mentions.
