Congratulations to, Lisa, our winner from Day 3! We asked you how you’ve inspired a kid (or kids) to sew. It was so much fun reading about how you’re all passing on the love of sewing. If you need ideas on how to help a young person to catch the sewing bug, be sure to read through the comments! Here’s Lisa’s great answer:
“My awesome local craft store offered kids’ sewing classes one summer and that’s all it took! My daughter made a head scarf, a pincushion and a top and immediately wanted her own sewing machine. We got her a machine for Christmas last year and she just spent a whole evening making drawstring bags for her friends for Christmas. We can’t wait for the holidays where we will have time to sew up some flannel pajama pants together! Her love for sewing has inspired my passion for sewing too. It’s really great that we can grow our skills and love of creating together.”
From reading your feedback and comments lately, it seems like many of you have recycling on the brain. I’ve been thinking about how sewists are some of the most innovative and creative upcyclers, so today we’re giving away the fabulous book Little Green Dresses: 50 Original Patterns for Repurposed Dresses, Tops, Skirts and More by Tina Sparkles (The Taunton Press).
To enter for your chance to win, answer today’s question in the comments section below: How do you sew green? Tell us about your coolest upcycling, reusing, recycling and repurposing sewing tips, tricks and projects. Tomorrow, we’ll announce today’s winner and the question and prize for Day 4. Thanks for participating!
