Congratulations to Eileen P. from Albany, CA, who was randomly chosen as the winner of our National Sewing Month Drawing and a $100 CreateForLess Shopping spree!

Eileen’s Sewing project was…

These two panda softies are my original designs. I drew the pattern myself and sewed them with my machine, adding hand sewn details on the embroidered faces. They are made up of a whimsical mix of coordinating cotton prints with wool felt and vintage button details. They have been lovingly stuffed with polyfil.

Our 2009 National Sewing Month Drawing Winner!

A Few of our Favorite Entries:

Grids & Grommets Bag – Uses large grommets (purchased from CreateforLess). Bag is large and would be suitable for a “carry-on” flight bag or also an overnight bag. Created from a pattern but ‘altered’ to use three fabrics (instead of one). With inside pockets, comfortable wide shoulder straps and double batting used in bottom portion of bag. Fun to carry!

My 16 year old daughter wanted a nice deep bag she could carry all her dance clothes in as well as pockets for CD’s, keys and personals. Inside this bag I put a zippered pocket. There are inside as well as outside pockets to find things quickly and to protect the CD’s. I quilted my own fabric and embroidered her name so there are not two bags alike anywhere. The handles wrap all around the bag to give added strength. I used standard rotary cutting tools. I made up the pattern 🙂

A quilt that was paper pieced with blocks designed from the Harry Potter books. Two are my own design and others were designed from friends. It was machine quilted.

This project is from the heart. It is my daughter’s wedding gown. It is our own design. I started with matte satin, 54 inch lace and a whole lot of beads and rhinestones. I cut out the motifs of lace and hand sewed them on then I sewed silver accents. Then I started the beadwork. A lot of very long nights and sore fingertips!! I started the dress on Feb 9 and finished on Aug 4. I told her as I was making it that if it wasn’t “THE DRESS” that we would buy her one. She shot that down instantly. She said that she had always dreamed of me making her wedding gown. What an honor that she gave me. I couldn’t let her down.

This is a fun trendy Hippo which I called ‘Hot Hippo’. She is made from a sock. It is my own design. She is weighted with sand and stuffed with fibre fil. There is very little sewing but still she is a fun character and I could not have had more fun making her. I laughed all the way through it. Supplies: sock, false eyelashes, a few beads from a broken necklace, felt for lips, stuffing and sand.. and a little imagination.

Deb C. from Venice, FL

I made this dress for my niece. It was inspired by the wedding gown on Marie Antoinette. I sized down Simplicity 3635 and 3637 for her size. The dress is made of ivory antique satin and trimmed with bright green satin ribbon, pink satin ribbon, embroidery, gold colored metal buckles, pearl beads, embroidered flower appliqués which I made, and white lace. I made the mask from paper Mache and covered it with ivory satin and decorated it with hand braided silver trim, feathers, and silver and white glitter. The entire ensemble consists of chemise, stays, panniers, petticoat, gown, necklace and mask. The entire ensemble was made following period techniques of construction.
