Secret Garden competition - time to vote!

Every time we do something for the first time it is a peculiar mix of exciting ('whooop can't wait to see what people make!') and slightly terrifying ('oh *gosh*, what if no one likes it!??'). And this, launching our very first fabric design competition, was no different. However, our fears were unfounded and you guys threw yourselves into it with some serious gusto. As a result, we have been absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the sheer amount, the range of nationalities and the creativity of the entries we had pouring in. Thank you so so so much all of you for supporting our competition and entering your work!

Perhaps the only negative was that between all of the copious chocolate and lounging this weekend, we had the extremely difficult task of narrowing all of your wonderful entries down into a much smaller selection for you to vote on. 

In terms of choosing the overall winner, the way it works is via our suuuuper (*ahem*) sophisticated voting system of liking the picture of your favourite design on Facebook, or, if you don't have Facebook, leaving a comment below with the name of the designer you'd like to see win. FYI the names of the designers can be found below each of the designs.

We know that you all of course will want to vote for your pals, but please also try and keep it fair and vote, led purely by your aesthetics, for the design that you would most like to see on fabric! 

Right, off you go! We'll be counting up the winner on Friday 25th April at midday BST
