Free Stuff Friday!

Do you know a budding designer? Or are you one yourself? In this installment of Free Stuff Friday, you could win a Project Runway Fashion Design Figure Drawing Set, courtesy of Fashion Angels and Simplicity. (MSRP: $30)

The kit comes with a wooden mannequin, colored and drawing pencils, sketch pads, an eraser, a tortillon and more. This would be perfect to use to practice drawing croquis to make your own fashions! (Speaking of croquis, check out our first installment of Methods to Master: Fashion Sketching in the Feb/Mar ’11 issue of Sew News. It will be hitting newsstands in January!)

We will choose one winner from the responses.

Thanks for participating! Happy sewing!

    Your machine manual is your best friend. If your machine isn’t kept in top shape your project will suffer. Oil, clean, maintain your equipment to avoid frustration. Remember there are no mistakes that can’t be redesigns :)

    sewing is not an exact science, for in your bloopers, your greatest creations may manifest themselves.

    This would be so great for my 6 year old budding fashion designer! She got her own sewing machine for her birthday, and would love this! Though she’s too young to use the iron, I tell her all the time that pressing things neatly and thoroughly is the difference between home-made (which can have such a negative connotation) and custom hand-made.

    Learn the basics, then don’t be afraid to experiment. If something seems complicated break it down and do one step at a time.

    Read all instructions, use your imagaination, and pick a technique that works and use in all projects.
