    I just watched the video on making the felt and organza flowers. Great job! One of my daughters has been doing this and putting them on clips . They are a cute, inexpensive gift and her friends love them. Lori B!

    WOW! This will be the only way I can “afford” a larger size field embroidery machine. Mine is only 4 x 4. My sewing machine is a good sturdy machine, but it only does utility stitches :( My neighbor has the top-of-the-line Janome and I have been watching her digitize today. Awesome! A big thanks to Janome for donating and to DIY for the chance at a great reward!

    What a great site you have here! I just found it through the YCMT newsletter! I’ve signed up for your newsletter, grabbed the blog button and it’s now on my blog, commenting here, become a fan on facebook, and I will be blogging about the giveaway and site and embedding the video (if I can figure out how) on my blog!
    LOVE anything that is DIY as I end up doing just about everything myself!

    Ok – I added as friend on facebook, added as follower on twitter, tweeted about diydish.com and the giveaway, and subscribed to the newsletter and now I am leaving a comment. I don’t have my own blog or it would appear there too! Really could use a new sewing machine since mine seams (pardon that pun!) to be on it’s last leg (stitch?)……

    I am so happy I found you. Love the flowers and the pillows and look forward to additional items to make. I would love to win a machine for one of my grandchildren. I have worked with them on different sewing projects but it would be great to have their own machine.

    I just watched the video for the flowers and have some cut already, but need to get better colors of felt for a real pillow flower. I plan to make all 4 granddaughters pillows for their birthdays.
    Thanks a lot for a professional looking free flower!
