this looks like a great way to really try something new with my sewing machine.  i’m a little lost as to what to make, but have some ideas.  i’m going to be using fleece, i’m pretty sure of that; but what to do with it and how to show some true originality will be the challenge!  check out contest details here.

“It’s chilly out there! When weather turns cold, it’s time to fight back by sewing up some new warm gear. We want to see what awesomely cozy creations you can make, so we’ve teamed up with SINGER to bring you the Sew Warm Contest!

The rules are simple: make a new Instructable that shows how to sew up something to fight the cold, and publish it before the contest ends. There’s no limit to the function, or materials used in your project. Sewing is required, either with a sewing machine or by hand with a needle and thread.

We have some fantastic prizes to give away, including a Futura SES-2000 All-In-One Sew, Embroider and Serge Machine, dress forms, and sewing baskets. As an added bonus, every winner will also receive an Instructables Prize Pack that includes a t-shirt, patch, stickers, and a one-year Pro membership.

So get sewing and show us something warm and toasty! We can’t wait to see what you’ll make.”
