I recently saw some very adorable new sew ponchos for women at a craft sale. I totally regret not buying one, and since then I have been scouring pattern sights to find intructions for one. they we like the blankets only they had an off center v neck and were of course ponchos. they looked very fashionable. I am really interested in finding out how to make them. Can anyone help me? PLEASE?? thanks email@example.com

Planning on sewing something together to stay warm this winter? Then get ready for our upcoming Sew Warm Contest with SINGER. We will have some excellent prizes from SINGER to give away to any excellent project that helps you fight the cold this winter. All we ask is that you involve sewing in some way. So get your sewing machine and needles ready! More details coming soon. As with all our contests, entries must be published during the contest. Previously published Instructables are not eligible. UPDATE: Contest is live and can be seen here

Where can I buy a roll of silver or brass zippers. I also need stops, those pieces that stop the zipper from coming off, for them.?

I've entered several contests including winning one a few years ago - the valentines day contest with my soapy beating love heart! (aparently the system for flagging it as a winner won't because I won before the system was implemented! nevermind!) I was very suprised that my first prize was shipped all the way from the US to me in the UK. I'd not won a competition before that and was very happy to have done so from so far away as well. I didn't realise the rules had changed and the new 'sew warm' competition is US and Canada only. My wife has decided to make her own instructable for the sew warm competition - the prize was a big motivator in getting her to post. She's not done it yet but will probably over this weekend. She's completed her project on a 100 year old Singer sewing machine! Just the sort of thing I would have thought singer might be interested in! If she was ever-so-lucky enough to win, I'd be happy to sort out the customs etc as I would any purchase from abroad!

I would like to make a cardigan out of a sweatshirt and embellish it for the fall. I saw some at the store the other day and they were selling for $50+. I'm a medium sewer, but have never tackled anything like this. Any suggestions/help/ideas?

I recently got my hands on an awesome jacket from Goodwill, and it is the perfect material to put a couple patches on. I have a couple designs in mind for the patches I wanna make, but I have no idea where to start, so please help me out. I am a complete newbie too PS printed or sewn patches are both a help, but preferably sewn.

Can't find our Christmas stockings! (We moved) Tomorrow I'm heading out to try to find red and white felt and a glue gun. I don't have a sewing machine or time to learn to knit or crochet. I need to make 4 of them, and they need to be super easy and not take special equipment or a lot of time. So I'm thinking I'll just cut out 8 stocking shapes and glue them together and glue some white trim along the top. And if I get real creative, maybe write the names in glitter glue. I am well aware that this is pretty cheesy, but it's all I've been able to think of. I hope one of you will have a better idea. I don't want to spend a lot of money because I'm convinced the originals will turn up before next year. Any better ideas than glued felt? Thanks.

I had recently made my own school bag out of some, of my excessive amount, of scrap fabric, took pictures of its creation, and then added it to instructables. I have minimal views and no comments. I feel that I have done something wrong in making it or showing how I made it. Can someone give me advice on how to make this better for future references. I know it is entered in the back to school contest but I am not trying to make myself win now, since I messed up. I just want to fix it for later. This is the school bag. https://www.instructables.com/id/Messenger-Bag-Style-LaptopSchool-Bag-W-Adjustabl/

I am making silk pillows with one inch silk welt. It always twists. Any tips on how to apply large welt without it twisting?
My jeans fit in the legs and I can even zip them up! However, the extra poundage I have gained since giving birth is haunting me now. LOL These jeans are expensive designer brands so giving them away or throwing them away is NOT any option! I am looking for some ideas as to how I can alter them to fit me at the waist area..I appreciate any and all the help you can give me!

I was curious because every sewing needle I've ever used only fits thread/ embroidery floss. Is it possible to sew with a thicker string?Thanks!-Dawn

As an un-indicted co-conspirator on one of the finalist entries, I hate to seem like a sore loser, but I think the judges missed the boat on a few of the winners. Considering it was a "Summer Sewing Contest" that was looking for "Summery" projects that were "celebrating summer", Upcycled Quilts and Pokemon Snuggie Costumes, without even a hint of summer theme, seem a little out of spirit. Fine instructables to be sure, but best saved for the next iterations of SEW SCARY and SEW WARM. To give credit where credit is due, the Grand Prize winner could not have been more appropriate. It was unquestionably "Summery", most definitely a sewing project, and very well done. I hope the judges will weigh more heavily the theme of the contest in the future.
