SUMMER SEWING CONTEST
It's getting hot outside, which means it's time to freshen things up with some warm-weather sewing! We want to see what great summery projects you come up with, so we've teamed up with Singer to bring you the Summer Sewing Contest.

The rules are simple: make a new Instructable that shows how to sew up something to celebrate summer, 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 amazing prizes to give away, including an 8770 Curvy sewing machine, and the new 3323S Talent sewing machine! 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 summery! We can't wait to see what you'll make.
Multiples entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize International entries are accepted, but SINGER machines can only be shipped in the US (Official Rules)

Accepting

Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.

Voting

Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.

Judging

A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
