Dewey Decimal Sewing Journal Giveaway

Sunday, April 7, 2013

I've been pouring over the Dewey Decimal Guide finding inspiration for all kinds of craft projects... a hot pad with the code for cook books (641.5), a collar with the code for dogs (636.7), a laptop bag with the code for computers (004)... the possibilities are endless!

I want to share the Dewey fun with all of you so I'm giving away two sewing journals printed with the code for sewing, 646.2.

The first is a wonky patchwork cover made with linen and quilting cottons. Inside is a lined Moleskine journal that is ~5" x 8".




The second journal is also made with quilting cottons and a bit of linen. Instead of stamping the sewing code, I stenciled it with fabric paints. This is also a Moleskine journal but it's smaller than the first at ~3" x 5".




If you'd like to win one of these journals, just leave a comment sharing what you have planned for your next sewing project! If you follow my blog, leave two comments and double your chances! This giveaway is open to my cyber friends around the world. I'll pick two winners next Sunday, April 14th.

**If you are a no-reply blogger, please be sure to provide contact information in your comment so I can reach you.**

Good luck!

I just finished a skirt and I have several more and a few dresses to go. Not to mention the summer jackets. Oh and I forgot about the tops...FIESTA ANYHOW :)

I got up this morning at 5 because the stupid vacuum robot is really loud and I started a t-shirt quilt where both side are patch worked. I've finished doing the tops all in one day and now all I have to do is assemble it. I think I'll just tie it with yarn. I'll post on C-ster when I'm done. I don't know what I have next to do now. Maybe work on my tie skirt?

I'm trying to finally finish the cover for the chair I use with the sewing machine table--I'm re-purposing a pair of old jeans for it, but I keep changing my mind exactly how to do it.

Well, technically not a sewing project... I'm painting hand-me-down sneakers with bits of suede stuck over the parts that won't take paint. My daughter is going to love them! I love this whole idea you've got going

Wow! you really did have a productive morning. Lovely and generous surprise. My next sewing project, humm... well leaving aside the 20 odd costumes I am currently eyebrows deep in for "Lion King", but that is work and not fun. I have two embroideries to finish, one of an Edward Gorey picture and one of a map of my childhood home. Then I am going top make a small quilt that is the topographical map of the moor where my Great Aunt lived which also involves clogs. Its still in the conceptual stage!

Marcia W. said...

My next sewing project is to bind the edges of a table scarf using the backing to fold over the front as a binding. This is my first time attempting this technique. Thanks for the giveaway. This book would be perfect for me to catalog the projects I've completed. I have terminal lung cancer (non smoker) and want to leave a journal of my quilting and crafting projects for posterity.

Erica said...

Oh, I adore these handmade journals! I always need journals to carry around with me and these are perfect. :)

Right now I'm finishing up sewing a peplum top, and I'm hoping to make a shift dress next. I'm 'sew' glad I sew now so that I can enter into this giveaway!!

I've got two dolls waiting to be sewn - one is a pig doll, inspired by one of my daughter's drawings, and the other is a doll wearing a suit, with bad hair, named Phil. :)

I was so taken by your recent tote bag design--just love it. I keep thinking that I have to ditch the shabby old kids backpack I use when I walk to my local grocery store. Really, I'm too old for a backpack. I'd love to make something pretty and eyecatching for a shopping bag. I think it's going to have to have padded straps. Groceries get a little heavy.

From a librarian who loves Dewey -- hurray! Such a cute idea. I'm trying to uncover my sewing machine to hem some jeans, but I have all sorts of ideas for bags and little zipped pouches I want to try.

So cute, your stamping is always so neat too.
Next project is a refashioned vintage dress I can't wait to spruce up.

Comment no. 2 lol

Next sewing project after the dress will be another Leather paper bag style clutch for the long awaited tute!

I'm a librarian also, and love this idea! I may have to appropriate it for a few small projects...

Thanks to Zakka Life for the link to your blog!

Suzanne said...

You are a woman after my own heart. I think the incorporation of crafts and Dewey decimals is super. I'm the person who memorizes some of the Dewey call numbers so I can make a beeline to my favorite sections of any library.

Being a former editor/book nerd I LOVE these dewey projects. The guinea pig at the local library is actually named Dewey. I'm working on a few things -- a thread catcher, a felt horse, and throw pillows.
Thanks for posting these,

Hey! Been wanting to know what the moleskin is. I am stillatthetop on Craftster.
Wanting to sign up for the drawing!
New projects? One per month. I have a needle {knitting} case, then a Hoopla for the DOA...then a December for IYP swap to Australia...then a neat pillow top in wonderful spring colors, in between the last two is still undecided. I want some chain maille in Feb., but that swap is not completely designed, or established, yet. Do I get a sticker????
