Sew Wild Inspiration + Giveaway

on September 14 | in Contests & Giveaways, Products | by | with 486 Comments

Alisa Burke, mixed-media artist, painter, designer and creative spirit, joined us on the blog earlier this year with her fun Doodle Pillow tutorial. We enjoy all she does over at Alisa Burke, and we’re excited to check out her latest book, Sew Wild.

Alisa writes, “Sew Wild gives you the green light to make great surface design and mixed media art by breaking the rules and showing you there is no right or wrong way of creating. Enjoy the unlimited freedom and possibilities of color, pattern, and customizable fabric. Get wild with printing, painting, drawing, stenciling, and other surface design methods. Explore unique design materials such as plastic bags, photographs, and cardboard.”

Comment today for a chance to win a copy of the book. Alisa’s baby girl is due soon, and today she shows us a beautiful project from the nursery-in-progress, inspired by Sew Wild. Baby will clearly be surrounded by art, color, beauty and love!

With a baby girl on the way we have been busy preparing, decorating and creating and I couldn’t resist making a fish mobile inspired by my new book, Sew Wild.

I started by gathering all my scraps in colors that we picked out for the room (blues, greens and turquoise). Most of my scraps include hand painted or dyed fabric and lots of upcycled fabric.

I placed the the scraps to pieces of card stock for stability and went wild with free motion sewing. I created lots of messy circles…

…And lots and lots of free motion, simple fish.

I cut out all the fish and the circles

And then sewed them together in groups of 8-9 shapes.

Next I wrapped an embroidery hoop with scraps of hand painted fabric and tied each strand of fish to the hoop, making sure they were places equal distance apart for balance.

Last, I hung the mobile above the crib and in front of a fun ocean painting that is in progress.

They complement each other perfectly!

For more wild and creative sewing projects check out my book, Sew Wild!

    Wow what a gorgeous room! Almost 6 years ago when my son was born we created an under the sea room for him. To this day it is still the same so coloful and fun. I wish I would have realized at that time that I really did posess the talent to create some of the elements myself. I love the painting and mobile so much I think I will update his room with some of my own creations with the same underwater theme. Bringing it to a more reasonable age level for my almost 6 year old son.

  115. Asta says:

    Since I am incapable of sewing a straight line I’d like to see more of this free-hand motion sewing going on. Obviously I’m not saying it’s easier but i have no hope in straight lines so this better work for me.

    Anyway, what I was going to say is that this is so lovely and different (in a most positive way) and colour scheme is unexpected (again all in the most positive sense of the word). Many thanks for sharing.

  376. Kristin says:

    Great idea, I love the painted fabric.

  377. E says:

    What a marvelous idea! So inspiring!

  378. Super cute! I love the “messy” circles and fish – definitely more artsy than if they were nice and neat (and boring).

  379. So sorry I missed the opportunity to respond yesterday. I love Alisa’s art as well and this mobile is fabulous. Thinking I might try to whip up a mobile for our friends’ baby.

  380. elsa says:

    THANKS for this opportunity to win this FABULOUS book!

  389. Alison Haynes says:

    What a lucky little girl she will be.

Thanks for the inspiration Alisa x

  390. nik says:

  397. Donna says:

    Sew pretty! (ha!couldn’t resist) Seriously though, I love the theme and the colors are beautiful. The ocean painting is cute. It’s enough to attract the baby’s attention and curiosity without being too much. There’s a lot of nice potential in this theme, also. Pillows, puppets, soft fabric story books, blankets, stuffed ‘creatures’…
    My book is on the way. Can’t wait!!!

  398. lisa b. says:

    LOVE IT! I’ve been taking Alisa’s class on surface design which gives you lots of ideas how to design your own fabrics. I think I will try something similar with “leaves” for a great fall project!

  399. Nina says:

    So cool!

  400. Lisa says:

    this book is awesome. My husband and son are avid fishermen I would love to my this for a Grandchild.

  401. Brandina says:

    What a wonderfully creative project! I wish that sometimes I would stop thinking projects have to be complicated to the simple yet still beautiful projects could come to the forefront.

    I’m new to sewing (completely new…as in, never used a sewing machine before) so winning this book would be so wonderful :)

  402. sangeetha says:

    Loved it.. :)

  403. Kim N says:

    So cute! Love the idea!

  404. debbiejl says:

    What a fun project! I love Alisa’s take on paint/fabric and sewing!

  405. Glenys says:

    That’s so pretty and easy too.

  406. Ellen says:

    Beautiful! As a quilter, I have so many scraps of colorful fabric. I think this book would be a great way to use them creatively.

  407. Dianne says:

    What fun! So cheerful and colorful. The idea of a mobile is really great idea. I’ve been tradional quilting for years and have within the last year gone into art quilting. I am thoroughly enjoying the “playing” with the fabrics and different surface designs. It has been fun learning experience and opened up so many different avenues for my art quilting. Can’t wait to see this book.

  408. Kirie says:

    Interesting project. Thanks for the chance to win the book :)

  409. Michele says:

    I could always go for another sewing book!

  410. A splendid tutorial on free-motion and making wonderful use of scraps. The book looks like something a sort of stuck-in-the-mud, old-fashioned type like me would find inspiring. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  411. Holly says:

    So cute! If my son was still a little guy I’d have run to the sewing machine to stitch one up with planets and stars and comets. Instead, I’ll admire yours, and wait for nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Thank you for sharing this project with us!

  412. Sydney says:

    That mobile is beautiful! I love that it’s so simple yet makes SUCH an impact! And a great way to use up scraps!

    That is great! The mobile goes so well with the picture!

  415. Anya says:

    Love the fish mobile!! I bet it is wonderful when it sways in the breeze – so calming!

  416. Rebecca says:

    amazingly beautiful and inspiring! I have done some fiber arts in the past, but I feel like my sewing has hit a utilitarian rut lately. This book could be a big boost back into fun :-)

  417. Peggy says:

    LOVE this idea! (and I would love to win a copy of SEW WILD! (fingers crossed)

  445. deirdre_lyon says:

    This is so neat – reminds me quite a bit of Eric Carle, and other texture-oriented childrens’ illustrations.

  446. audrey says:

    This FISH mobile is wonderful! I would be thrilled to win a copy of SEW WILD. Please throw my name in the hat. I will cross all fingers and toes! ♥

  448. Kit Lang says:

    Love this – and Alisa. Would love to win a copy of her book! :)

  449. Wendy Hatton says:

    I love the free, flowing stitching. I wish there were more hours in the day so I could try doing this myself…it will have to wait until I have cleared my work bench a bit.

  450. Beth says:

    I made something close to this for my baby’s nursery too. I would love to see the other great ideas in ‘Sew Wild’!

    I love this! What a fun project, think there is going to be some free motion sewing in my future!

  453. Tara says:

    Totally fun and freeing. I think this would be a super fun project for teaching folks how to sew, playing with new fabrics, or even just a get the mental juices flowing.

    Fantastic. Thanks so very much for sharing.

  454. Flavia says:

    Alisa, I’ve been visiting your site everyday and your free creativity has inspired me to create again. Thank you!!!

  455. I love your take on creativity. Always makes me smile.

  456. Erika Davison says:

    I love the colors and I adore the fact it’s not the tradional pinks and purples for girls! I am expecting as well and I see a scrap mobile in my baby’s future. I can’t wait to get my hands on her book.

  457. Barbara says:

    I just love that fish mobile – great idea to use up some of the scraps I’ve been saving!

    (P.S. Not sure if I’m valid to enter since I live in Australia, but would love to enter if I can!)

  464. Emilie says:

    This is such a great idea. I’ve never tried free-motion quilting before (I would need one of those feet for my machine), but I would love to try and this seems like such a perfect project for a beginner in the area! Thanks!

  465. Sarah McGrath says:

    Gorgeous! I have a little boy on the way so this is nice inspiration for me!

  466. Sourkraut says:

    I think I would have been able to tell from the pictures alone that it’s an Alisa Burke design. She has such a distinctive style.

    This is not usually my style, but I love it!

  481. looooooove that fishes mobile!! so creatively cute! and … love that painting too :D ♥

  482. Howard says:

    Great idea to use up fabric scraps as well! I like the idea of making my own decorations simply when i get out of my parents’ house and into my own place! I did end up buying a sewing machine to learn how to sew as i was wanting to make a costume for a convention but didn’t get very far in my learning.

  483. helen wright says:

  484. Jessica says:
