Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways Day 2

Thank you everyone for participating in our kickoff giveaway! To celebrate Season 4 of Sew it All TV airing on PBS September 1st, we’re giving away a prize a day for the next 12 days!

Every day you comment on the post and enter into that day’s giveaway, you’re also automatically entered to win the GRAND PRIZE, Season 3 on DVD!

Yesterday we asked, “What projects/techniques would you like to see onSew it All TV?” Thank you for all your great ideas! I think they’d all make great episodes and we’ll do our best to provide the content you’re looking for!

Our kickoff giveaway winners will receive a copy of Sewing in a Straight Line: quick & crafty projects you can make by simply sewing straight by Brett Bara! (In episode 301, A Shirr Thing, Brett showed us how to create a cute shirred maxi dress.)

Congratulations Paula H, Mary Stott, Brenda Melahn and Nancy! Please email with your mailing address to receive your prize!

Day 2′s Giveaway prize is….a copy of The Feisty Stitcher by Susan Wasinger. In season 1, Susan demonstrated how to create a lunch bag from recycled plastic bags in, “In the Bag.”

433660 254x300 Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways Day 2

In The Feisty Stitcher, find instructions for super fun projects, such as a coin purse, day planner, gift tags and other garment, home-dec and gift projects.

For another great around-the-house, back to school project, get free instructions to create a fun fabric sketchbook cover with tons of pockets to hold pens and notes from season 3 guest Josephine Kimberling‘s episode, “Material World.” In her episode, Josephine delves into the world of fabric design from an artist’s perspective, and then demonstrates how to construct the cute sketchbook cover.

To win The Feisty Stitcher, answer the following question in the comments section below, “Have you ever created your own fabric print?”

For a project in college, I created a repeating print in varying shades of grey and printed it on white fabric using the department’s gigantic fabric printer. But I’m always envious of the fabric painters, who can just whip out their paintbrushes and create a work of art on fabric (like season 4 guest, Dena Fishbein). How about you?

The winner will be announced tomorrow, along with the Day 3 prize! Good luck!

  1. Lawana Whaley says:

    yes, did one with a reverse stencil effect by placing feathers on black fabric and spritzing with bleach solution

  2. Rosemary Griffis says:

    Often I have wished for a certain pattern or design, but I’m far away from that. Wish I could learn.

  3. Kathy Hutchins says:

    Some fabric stamping is all I have tried. Would love the book to get more ideas!

  4. PBS says:

    Tried sun painting…didn’t work well!

  5. PBS says:

    Tried the sun painting technique….didn’t work well!

  6. Linda says:

    Yes, I have juiced elderberries and died some made for dyeing fabric and it turned out beautiful. It is such a rich color of purple. What fun!! This book would be great to have as I need to make some some small bags and covers for such things as a day planner.

  7. Have printed on inkjet fabric photos of people or scenes for a particular wall quilt and have often looked for particular theme of fabric and not able to find it…should get together with my art teacher daughter to help her disabled mother to put my fabric ideas on cloth! Any advise or help is appreciated…

  8. Karen Poole says:

    I Love the show and magazines! And have gotten such great ideas from all of them! We watched the show when Eric Drexler was on showing how to make a thread bowl, my five year old grandson thought it was so cool that he wanted to make one, and he did and it turned aut really nice!! It is proudly displayed on our fireplace mantle!

  9. Lorna says:

    I have tried several techniques from screen printing, to stamping, to splatter painting, to dye -ing. Whew! Some fabrics so need help and some projects open themselves for more creativity!

  10. wendy says:

    I have thought about my own fabric. Sounds like fun.

  11. Cathy Cooper says:

    Have not created my own fabric but it sounds like fun!

    Side Note: How about a lesson on Invisible Zippers? Would love to learn how to insert one. TY :)

  12. Susan says:

    This would be very helpful.

  13. Brenda Melahn says:

    The closest I have came to “creating” my own fabric print was to scan my shower curtain to get fabric to do a window valance. Not very creative, huh?

  14. Michelle Shamp says:

    No, but I would love to learn. I think my kids and grandkids would have a great time! Bless u!

  15. Bonnie says:

    no, closest I ever got was over-dying a print fabric for a quilt.

  16. LeAnne Caulfield says:

    I have done printing on fabric with my computer. I made a design and wrote a poem that I had read and added a little extra of my own words. Then I made couch pillows for my 7 sisters and my mom with the printed poem on the top of the pillows. This was for my Christmas gifts one year. I have also bought all the fabric paints and stencils that I need but haven’t used them yet.

  17. Sue Larson says:

    I transferred a scanned sketch that my nephew did to fabric to incorporate it into his son’s baby quilt. Fun!

    I have never created my own fabric print but would love to. I would like to make my own fabric by dyeing & using stencils or objects but don’t have the room at the moment. One day…..

  19. Jamie F. says:

    I never have! Maybe I’ll give it a try

  20. Heidi says:

    I have not ever created a fabric print, but love the creativity of it!! I especially like the regional prints that I have collected.

  21. Celestial says:

    The closest I’ve gotten to creating my own fabric print is screen printing fabric. It was on a rather small scale, but doing it on a large scale could be fun.

  22. Loretta T says:

    YES! I love spoonflower. Needed to make some garment bags for my Vintage style shows I present, so I designed and made my own, had printed in a canvas and now everyone knows what is mine.

  23. Debby says:

    I have never tried, but am ready and willing!!

  24. Tracy says:

    No, I have never created my own fabric.

  25. Jeanne says:

    I haven’t tried creating my own fabric print yet…but I want to…on the to do list for retirement in a few years! I am supposed to have more time for my avocation when I reach that threshhold!

  26. Patsi Novia says:

    I have thought about it often, even drew some out but never put it to fabric.

  27. Judi Stonik says:

    I have not created my own fabric either. Just embellished it with paint or marker or fabric crayons.

    Only designed fabric on a large scale by discharging or overdying

  32. chelsea lyons says:

    No but that’s cool!

  38. Norine Reed says:

    In school, I
    designed an all over “ditsy” print. I used the design on the back of my business card, but never had it actually printed on fabric. Hopefully one day I will!

    “Have you ever created your own fabric print?” Yes I have ..I mixed up craft paint and perfect pearls and put it in a spray bottle to spray over a mask ..

  47. natali says:

    Would love to win the book, seems filled with fun projects! I’m still a newbie at sewing so I’m trying to master basics first :) . There are some great fabrics out there but I can definitely see the appeal of creating your own. Just not there yet…

  48. lynn says:

    would like to see an easier way to sew zippers on

  49. Mona Rottinghaus says:

    In June I created one of a kind pajamas for my nine-year old grandson. He loves the platypus and the color orange. I used a tie dyed orange fabric and created a digital print with my computer for an all over print of a platypus and the word platypus. I cut the fabric using my pajama pattern first and then printed just the pieces. The front bodice was a graphic my grandson and I designed together using an image of Australia, the platypus and water. When I was finished he had one of a kind pajamas that will never be duplicated. He was one happy young man.

  50. I have not created my own fabric paint but would be interested in learning and trying it !!!
