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.

Contest is open to residents of the US and Canada only. Multiple entries are allowed, but each entrant can only win one prize.
