Creative Challenge Theme: Vintage SEWING

Time for a new challenge theme! In the past few months, I have re-awakening my love of sewing, thanks to a vintage 1956 Singer sewing machine, just like my mother's discovered at a basement sale last summer. I enjoy cutting and stitching away whenever I get the chance, and buying fabrics is my new guilty pleasure! This is the inspiration for my next blog challenge theme: VINTAGE SEWING.

My machine isn't quite as old as this girl's ~ mine is more mid-century ~ and I don't (usually) wear my pearls when I sew, but she looks like she has as much fun as I do. I hope you have fun with the theme! The SEWING theme can include stitching, quilting, or any kind of needlework actually incorporated into your creation, or it can include images of sewing, quilting, crocheting, knitting, even spinning. Remember that any medium is OK, so in addition to cards, paper crafts, and digital art, feel free to enter pictures of your fabric creations!

Need vintage sewing images? You'll find buttons and thimbles, scissors and spools, antique sewing machines, photos of vintage ladies sewing (Vive St. Anne, the patron saint of seamstresses!), vintage thread ads and fabric labels, and more at!

Guidelines for the challenge:
  • Any craft or medium is OK.
  • Vintage style is encouraged.
  • Use a Lunagirl image or element and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Remember to link to this blog and to on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  Winner will be selected randomly to receive a $15 credit at!
  • Challenge ends at noon CST on Thursday, March 5.
  • I love it when you use Lunagirl images, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collections... but that's not a requirement!  But do remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I welcome everyone and every style but also want to give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

    There will be more from the DT later during this challenge, and you'll want to check back to see all the entries as well. We hope you'll share yours!
