Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway to a long weekend! Do you have any Labor Day plans? Barbecue in the park? Picnic by the lake? Well, before you go, make sure you hang around to enter these last three days of our Sew it All TV giveaways!
Thank you all for entering yesterday. It was so much fun to read about your favorite parts of a project. This one was a toss up for a lot of people, and very divided. Many love getting the inspiration and designing, while some dread it (getting started is the hardest part!). The middle is boring for some, while others love the anticipation of getting to the end. Most everyone loves the end though, except when the project doesn’t turn out quite as expected!
Many entered, but there can be only one winner, and that winner is:
Carol K E, who said, “I like the middle, most of the decisions are made and I can just enjoy the hum of the sewing machine.”
Congrats Carol! You won the book Sulky Secrets to Successful Applique by Joyce Drexler! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address to receive it! And don’t forget to check out Ellen Osten’s episode “Serger Crochet” where she demonstrates how to make a tutu using a serger to emulate the look of crochet.
Our Day 11 prize is the book Deploy That Fabric by Jen Eskridge.
Show your pride in our troops every day! All members of the Armed Forces have to buy multiple uniforms, some of which become decommissioned. Learn how to recycle these uniforms and blend in some cheerful, contemporary fabrics to create useful family treasures with one-of-a-kind style. Even if you don’t have a service member in your life, you can make these cool projects using camouflage fabrics or uniforms purchased from surplus stores.
Enter to win this patriotic, upcycling project book by answering this question in the comments section below, “Do you have a service member in your life?”
I’m so proud of my cousin, Brandon, who’s in the Air Force. We just learned he’s expecting his first baby with his new wife! Share your stories here!
Remember, every day you enter, you’re entered to win the Grand Prize (season 3 on DVD)! Good luck! The winner and the Day 12 prize will be announced tomorrow!
