Make It, Wear It! Challenge

on June 2 | in Contests & Giveaways | by | with 43 Comments

You heard all about the Make It, Wear It! Challenge, right?!

Sew some clothes in June and enter a photo of your garment(s) in our Make It, Wear It! Challenge photo pool or in this thread in the forum.

To answer a few questions:

  • The garment(s) must be sewn this month (not something from last year or even last month!).
  • The clothing you sew and enter can be for you, for kids, for lucky significant others… Each picture just has to be a piece of clothing you sew in June.
  • Please only enter one photo for each piece of clothing.

By adding a photo (or many photos!) you’ll be entered to win some really great prizes, including a new SINGER sewing machine!

  37. Sara says:

    I don’t need a new singer (I love my 1946 tank) but a subscription to ottobre would be fab! I think it is time to tackle that Heather Ross dress I have been admiring but avoiding…

  38. Have used Singer sewing machines for about 58 years. The first one I used was one of my mothers black featherweight style back in the 1950’s. Have an old plain and simple Singer, about 15 years old that does not make automatic button holes. Time for a new Singer sewing machine.

    I am taking up the challenge. This will be my first sewing project. Hopefully it turns out okay!
