Giveaway!! | December 01, 2009

Step right up, girls and boys, for the very first Eat Drink Chic Giveaway!! I'm proud to announce that the kind and generous folk at Eckersley's have offered Eat Drink Chic readers an amazing prize to help get the DIY creative juices flowing just in time for the holiday season. This giveaway item would also make a great holiday gift for a loved one with creative flair! Continue to find out the mystery prize and to leave your comment for a chance to win!

The prize is a Speedball fabric screen-printing kit! Ideal for an introduction to screen-printing. Design and make your very own screens and print onto t-shirts, bags, cushions, tea-towels, placemats, handkerchiefs... whatever you can imagine. Take a look at this video tutorial I found on YouTube to see just how easy it is to use. This particular tutorial shows the photo-emulsion technique of creating a screen. This is not the exact Speedball Kit but it looks to have similar components and will give you the general gist. 

HOW TO ENTER

To enter, simply leave a comment, at the end of this post, describing your reasons for wanting the Speedball (e.g the kind of projects you're interested in exploring) along with your name and email.  The winner will be randomly chosen from the list. In order to double your chance to win you may comment for a second time if you link to either a twitter or blog article, that you've created, directing people to this giveaway. Competition closes 10pm Tuesday 8th December (Melbourne, Australia time). Please consult this page for your corresponding local time. The winner will be announced on Thursday December 10.

 

INSPIRING DESIGNS

While we're on the topic of screen-printing, I've always admired the simplicity and beauty of these mini bag designs by Something's Hiding in Here (shown below). All the products in their Etsy store are so beautiful! Hopefully these will inspire some of your own creations...

Thanks so much to Eckersley's for the generous gift! Just out, their Christmas Catalogue has plenty of creative favourites- Take a look!

  3. I would LOVE to win this so I could print on some fabric for quilts.
  4. What a fabulous prize!
    I've always wanted to have a go at screen printing (VERY small scale, no t-shirt empires for me!) and this looks like an excellent way to start. My mum is an avid quilter and I always thought it would be cool to make some extremely short run illustrated patterns into material for her to quilt, kind of like a mother/daughter collaboration! Off to watch the tutorial and have a daydream, best of luck everyone.

I would love to be able to print custom designed t-shirts for friends and family. I have so many ideas in my head for screenprinting - new wall art to coordinate with the piece I made in the workshop, cards, posters, the list goes on.
  62. Shannon | Dec 2, 2009
    I don't really have any specific dreams for it, it would just be neat to have, and I'm sure I could think of a few uses for it!
  63. radhi | Dec 2, 2009
    this would be perfect (and much faster than freezer stenciling) to print designs on my muslin gift bags for teas! fingers crossed!
  64. ashley | Dec 2, 2009
    hmm, well i think everyone has wonderful ideas. i have been interested in trying out screen printing for a while as well. i am a fashion student so of course i think of these things. also something life changing happened this week, i found out i am pregnant. how pregnant i'm not sure yet. but i've always said my child will be stylish so i think his/her momma should be the one to make the first few onesies he/she owns. thank you. good luck everyone!

  67. lily | Dec 2, 2009
    I would love to learn how to screen print!! :D
  68. Oh what a great giveaway! I buy so many screen printed goodies; only because I am terribly intimidated by screen printing. This little beginner set would be perfect to get me going and exploring. I also know a few folks who would dig some screen printed awesomeness for the holidays :)

  69. Catherine | Dec 2, 2009
    What an amazing coincidence! I was just looking at some gocco kits on etsy, along with some screen-printing tutorials on the website of a local artist, because I have been looking into the possibility of using screen-printing to do logo work on some of my diy projects, and to produce prints. I have tons of cool images and designs sketched out, but, at the moment, nothing more sophisticated than fabric paint from squeeze bottles as far as 'image transfer technology'. A screen-printing skit would obviously hasten the process, as well as improve the end result (:
  70. Rachel Dallaire | Dec 2, 2009
    I would totally love to screen print on some bags! Awesome giveaway!
  71. So fabulous! I'd do t-shirts and probably some material just to frame too!
  72. Chris | Dec 2, 2009
    I would love to print tee shirts for my daughters 2nd birthday.
  73. Jamie | Dec 2, 2009
    I would love to win this!!
  74. i dont have a good reason other than i think it would be great fun for me and my daughter to do.
  75. Mandy | Dec 2, 2009
    It would be great to win this. I've long wanted to get into more "involved" crafts but haven't wanted to invest the money into activities that require an infrastructure of sorts.
  76. Mindy | Dec 2, 2009
    I loved screen printing when I was at school but my silk screen broke when I moved a while ago and I haven't replaced it. I'd love to use doilies as a stencil to print some fabric for making Christmas crackers!
  77. Anna | Dec 2, 2009
    Oh pretty please! I've been wanting to try my hand at screenprinting for the longest time but have never been able to commit to buying a kit. This would be perfect for making Christmas gifts for all my friends!
  78. Maria | Dec 2, 2009
    This is an amazing coincidence, i am making pillows for my friends and family for christmas, and painting them with original designs, unfortunately i do not know how to screen print, but would love to learn one day. this kit would help!
  79. Um, um, um, panicky, rushing to type fast to let you know how much I'd love to screenprint.

    My husband had a huge screenprinting company and I never learned. Even while I had the master of screenprinting living under the same roof. Do you know how many times I've kicked myself about it?

    I came back to crafting after the business moved and would love, love, love to screenprint but my pockets are empty and I'll just dream ... until hopefully my dreams come true.

    What would I do with a screenprinting set? wall art, clothes, homewares, labels, my own little fabric designs. Yikes, stop Emma you'll drive her bonkers.

    My fingers are crossed and my heart is racing in anticipation. One should hang on to their dreams you know!

    Thanks for the great giveaway.
  80. Oh this is way too cool . . . I want it!!! My wind is just realing with all the fun little projects I could do!!
  81. Sarah Rollinger | Dec 2, 2009
    I have been dying to screen some large format calenders for my friends and family for the Holidays!
  82. wow, what a cool prize!! There are soooooo many things I want to do! tea towels, t shirts, cushions, etc etc! whoop!
  83. WOW! awesome giveaway!
    i would love to give screen printing a go - i have so many ideas for kids clothes that i can't sleep at night!
    thanks!

  84. Miss Emma J | Dec 2, 2009
    Oh i love this!! inspires me to think of vintage designed hankies, personalised bags for gifts for my bridesmaids, and the special women in my life... shirts for hens nights crowds, and play mats for kids... so many ideas!! so little time to write them all!! and most of all it would definatly give you the chance to get really really crafty in time for christmas!!
  85. Teresa E. :) | Dec 2, 2009
    I'd use them to make Christmas presents--mock tree trimming work shirts for my husband, his step-brother and his step-dad! I love screen printing!
  86. Janine | Dec 3, 2009
    I make freezer paper stencil shirts for my friends all the time, and I've been wanting to graduate to screen printing for a while now. That way I could make shirts, bags, scarfs, all with the same pattern without making new stencils all the time! (Crossing my fingers!)
  87. Whoot! What an amazing giveaway. I'd love to give fabric printing a whirl, maybe linen tea towels. Or try a length of fabric and even make something from it. I know! Too much excitment! Thank you.
  88. Aileen | Dec 3, 2009
    what a great giveaway....this is just perfect for all the projects i've been meaning to finish in time for Christmas! thanks!
  89. Zoe | Dec 3, 2009
    My little brother has just done his first year of his Communication Design degree (following in my footsteps) and his talent blows me away. He has mentioned printing his designs on t-shirts as most you buy in the shops are easily $50+ and every second person ends up wearing the same thing! My parents are flying out to the UK this weekend and leaving us alone for Christmas for the first time so it would be a great bonding and learning experience for my brother and I to do while they're away.
  90. Jaime A. | Dec 3, 2009
    Oooh! I would use this kit to screenprint my own custom wallpaper. This is an awesome product!!!
  91. s. carvalho | Dec 3, 2009
    Oh My God... this is so great, I've bought a speedball stamp carving set before and it was great. This is so much better though!
    Pick me!
  92. Laura M. | Dec 3, 2009
    I would want this for my husband. He is a graphic design artist and loves screening printing his own tshirts. This would be prefect for him. His birthday is soon and I can't afford to get him anything. So this would be a great birthday gift for him.
  93. This would be AWESOME!!! I already design iron on transfers for onesies for all my friend's kids, but you always get that plastic-y look... screen printing would be so much cooler!!!
  94. SamaraL | Dec 3, 2009
    When I was little my Dad had his own screen printing gear, I used to love the smell of the paint, mixing the colours and being lucky enough to help him squeegee the paint across the screen... oh the memories!
  95. I am very intrigued...
  96. Joan | Dec 3, 2009
    I've done block printing on paper, but never screenprinting on fabric! I'd put this baby to good use. I'm getting married in June so I'd love to use it for favors or decor. Is that greedy? I GUESS I could make cute shirts, onesies and totes for others.
  97. I'd love to leave to screen-print so I can print my own fabric! I could make personalized Bird Trouble (my business name) pouches and what not. Oooo, that'd be fun!
  98. Cass | Dec 3, 2009
    Hi there. I'm doing the invitations and stationary for my best friend's wedding in sept next year. The speed ball screen printing kit would be a fantastic way for me to make the wedding stationary that I'm making look more polished whilst still remaining within the budget. Thanks :)
  99. Laura C | Dec 3, 2009
    WEhat an awesome kit! I have always wanted to try silk screening! But always too broke to buy the equipment! What a great giveaway!
  100. my husband's a screenprinter but his equipment's too overwhelming for me. this seems to be the perfect size and oh the possibilities. please puhleeeeese let me win!!
  101. Heather | Dec 3, 2009
    I would love to learn the process and make some cute new onsies for my lil man.
  102. Saki | Dec 3, 2009
    Wow I'd love to win this for our new house.
    My boyfriend and I just moved to our first house (our own!) and we are planning lot of decorating project.
    He loves a bit quirky but cute jokes, lines and characters and love them on his t-shirts.
    We can make cushions, something to put in the flame, and also our own funny t-shirts!
  103. Fanny | Dec 3, 2009
    I would love to win this screen printing kit so that I can screen print posters, greeting cards, tee shirts, and totes! =)
  104. Michele | Dec 3, 2009

  106. Ellen F. | Dec 3, 2009

  107. Angela Rhea | Dec 3, 2009
    My daughter would love it.
  108. Nicole | Dec 3, 2009
    Would be so thrilled to win this! Have been so inspired as of late, but needing to learn new techniques to express myself!
  109. Nicola | Dec 3, 2009
    How funny - another Nicole right above me :)

    I would love this for myself! I know it sounds greedy, but I'm about to transfer from a junior college to a university where I will be far away from my craft studio - this seems to be the perfect size for dorm room crafting when midterms get me down in the dumps! Customizable pillows, shirts and bags - even SOCKS - could be at my fingertips - and who doesn't like being crafty?

    Thanks!
  110. Bridget | Dec 3, 2009
    i recently did a case - study of printing at school. we did a bit of screen printing, and it was really fun, and i would love to do some more screen printing.
  111. it's a very very very nice hobby. I'm a graphic designer but my design sense is getting worse and worse day by day because im not working in the design firm. I was thinking i should really do something to boost up my creativity on designing my own character (in my blog-miss mantou) and probably have extra income by selling my character design. hope you can support me! thanks!
  112. Allison | Dec 3, 2009
    oh yes, I'd love this because; sometimes you get tired of the kid craft and just want to do something a little bit elegant
  113. kim | Dec 3, 2009
    so awesome. i want to make a bunch of grocery bags.
  114. What a fab giveaway! I've wanted to learn screen printing, and I love that this one doesn't require a ton of space. I'd use it for making cards and solid fabrics. Good luck everyone!
  115. How fantastic! I would love to print t shirts, cotton scarves and underwear for all my friends and members of my work social club. What a great giveaway!
  116. This would be the perfect Christmas present for my bestfriend Caroline ! She's creative and talented and she could make beautiful things with this kit ! I'm French so I don't know if I can enter the giveaway but it's worth trying :o)
  117. Aisling | Dec 3, 2009
    Hi Crafters, First a bit about me. I'm Aisling and I'm 13, I'm probably about the only teenager for 50 miles who spends their weekends hunting through antique stores and op stores for things to upcycle. Anyhow, I would love to give screen printing a go, a rather triumphant go! I'd love to try to print book bindings, vintage prints, wallpaper (?) and just general Christmassy projects! Thanks Amy
  118. Luzanne | Dec 3, 2009
    Hi there :)

    What are the chances of my entry being pulled out of that hat!?

    I've been really wanting to start with my own little craft projects to keep me busy on weekends and week nights. Work is very stressful and my boyfriend suggested that I try something to keep my mind off work. I go onto your website every day and am inspired to try new things everytime.

    I really hope to win your prize, it will mean the world to me.

    ('',)
  119. Amanda O | Dec 3, 2009
    I would LOVE to have a little screen-printing kit to make fabric invitations and party details. So fun!
  120. Roxy | Dec 3, 2009
    Special
    Project
    Everyone
    Enjoys
    Despite
    Being
    Artistically
    Lacking....

    Well that sounds like me, would love a screen print system just like everyone else here, but being a little lacking in the skills i could certainly create something fab with a system so easy!

    Would also go nicely with my ice-cream buffet wedding table.... themed napkins perhaps? ;)
  121. Roxy | Dec 3, 2009
    Yes forgot an "L" could also do with some spelling skills as well.....
  122. Sam | Dec 3, 2009
    Wow, what a great giveaway! I live in Antigua and it is impossible to get craft items here so to win it would be a thrill! I could use the kit to pave the way into starting a small business here as there are no companies here offering screen printing (and I could make my 3 gorgeous boys some fantastic tees - maybe myself too!)
  123. Oooooh another new craft to try :) Love it!!!
  124. This looks amazing. I would love to be able to create my own custom gifts for people with the screen printing system! There are so many things I would love to try printing on!
  125. Oh my gosh I would LOVE to win a screen printing kit. I've actually really wanted to get into screen printing and have been trying to find classes in my area with no such luck. But this would be even better to get started!

    I'm a graphic designer and would love to print my designs on anything and everything. And I need a personal creative project for myself outside my job. This would be perfect!
  126. oh my word! my husby and i need something for our walls and this would be absolutely perfect!
  127. this is AWESOME! never seen anything like this! these would be great for personalized tags or wraps!
  128. I didn't know that it exists and i love it! I need it!! There's so many things I would like to print with this kit!! Also I'm making rubber stamps. Fingers crossed!!
  129. this would be amazing for my store to grow. I have dying to get around to learning screen printing so that i can make some shirts for my adorable little store.
  130. Anelieze | Dec 3, 2009
    i've always wanted one of these. i think i'd make shirts for my brother, who's a little punk rocker.
  131. My head is brimming with ideas on all the things I could do with this amazing kit... first thing on my mind is create little personalized photo albums to send to my family who live soooo far away... and notebooks, and... and... and... thank you so much for the opportunity to win!
  132. These are awesome! First I would use for Christmas on our tablecloths, complementing napkins and then on to printing onto the wrapping paper for the presents under the tree. After this, I would use it as an additional service in our store for our clients on their invitation stationery and on all the special touches for their celebrations! So many options!
  133. I really want to make cute team items for my marathon teammates! We are doing a marathon this year to support cancer research, it would be a great surprise!

    Ooooo - I would love this! I've always wanted to try screen printing. I'm thinking an Andy Warhol-style piece of artwork for my office. But who would I choose as a subject?
  135. What a wonderful giveaway! Our 4-H club is wanting to get new shirts for our members, I think it would be wonderful to make them with this! I also would like to try out screen printing on yoga pants, I think it would look neat!

  137. I came here thanks to Katy's tweet, horah!

    I'm an artist who does a lot of line work and I've been wanting to get into screen printing for the longest time so I can do limited edition prints of my work, as well as print my pattern designs on fabric!
  138. wendy | Dec 4, 2009
    I want! I would use it to print some cool onesies for my kid!

  140. Jane | Dec 4, 2009
    So exciting! I'd love to print some tiny t-shirts for a friend's baby shower. It would be so great!
  141. lisa | Dec 4, 2009
    wow! this is fantastic
    there are no creative limits when it comes to screenprinting! i have designed a set on wonderful christmas imagery that could be screenprinted on cute little gift bags, like what you have posted above, to send to many people who need something to brighten up their day or make their christmas that much better :)
    thanks for giving readers the opportunity to win!
  142. To be honest I've always been a little intimidated by screenprinting. So many chemicals. So many steps. I am itching to have my own set so I can learn and play!!
  143. jglitter | Dec 4, 2009
    Wow! I so want to learn silkscreen!
  144. wow id love to have a go and make fancy dress screen printed outfits for the christmas holidays. it would be fun to play around on!!
  145. Brooke | Dec 4, 2009
    I would love to make some little shirts with cool designs for my little guy!
  146. Holly | Dec 4, 2009
    I have always wanted one of these. They are great for putting designs on t-shirts, tea towels, anything!
  147. I would love one of this to make some cute towels for my kitchen!
  148. Budoh | Dec 5, 2009
    I am infatuated with fabric crafting. This screen-printing kit will be perfect way to satisfy my new creative obsession!
  149. What an awesome giveaway! I think I'd have fun making some stuff for my girls for dance. They like to wear cute shirts for class :) I'd probably have to make myself some cute tops though!
  150. Natalya | Dec 5, 2009
    Screen printing would be a HUGE step up from my current method: I design stencils on common plastic stencil crafting sheets and then spray-paint the design onto fabrics. My favourite so far is a pair of blue scrubs pants I covered with Johnny Cash faces, but the spray paint's beginning to fade!!
  151. oooohhh I have so many designs in my head but can never seem to find what I'm looking for in the stores...this way I could print my own designs...on EVERYTHING!!!
  152. Alice | Dec 5, 2009
    I have no idea how to do screen printing but I'm always on the look out for new crafts to learn! This will be a great kit to try something new =D!
  153. beth | Dec 5, 2009
    been wanting to do this for a really long time: try different designs on tshirts, tote bags, fabrics to make pillows, hand towels... ectect...
  154. I am still shy about getting into screenprinting although I think that it is one cool artsy way of expressing art..But lack of space and fear of messing with too many chemicals keot me from finally trying it out. Maybe some kind of starter kit would be just perfect for me!
  155. JD | Dec 5, 2009
    neat!
  156. sophia | Dec 5, 2009
    I did screen printing once when I was very little at an art class and LOVED it. I would definitely love to try screen printing once again!
  157. This would be perfect for so many things.....produce bags (adding veggie pics), onesies, and gift bags for holidays. Also great to use on tote bags and t-shirts when fundraising!
  158. Katelyn | Dec 6, 2009
    I have never gotten the chance to do a screen print because my school was too pov to provide it for us. It would be of great use for presents and my artworks (especially for the one I am making for my HSC at the moment. I am wanting real clothing on the girl in them.) Thankyou for the opportunity to win this great and thoughtful prize :)
  159. I would love this for all the last minute custom shirts I try to piece together for my kids at 3:00 before they have a theme day at school I somehow missed! Thanks, Carli
  160. Natasha | Dec 6, 2009
    how cool is the photo-emulsion technique!
    i use a camera to create art and this would be brilliant for messing around with them and t-shirts :)
  161. Miss Bo | Dec 7, 2009
    I've just started an art degree (after an 11 year gap), I've always loved printing and would love to try my ideas out using a proper kit. Especially as speedball are the best.
  162. What a great kit and giveaway. I would love to learn how to do this!
  163. Sharon McKenzie | Dec 7, 2009
    I would love this for printing my own tshirt designs and posters. I love printing!
  164. Millie Stevens | Dec 7, 2009
    i would use this kit to make some really cool clothes for the summer, cause right now i have no clothes because i have no time to go shopping and not enough money so this kit would be ideal!!! also me and my friend have been thinking of making our own dresses if we had this kit we could make awesome designs to make our dresses amazing!!! :)
  165. What a perfect gift this would make,
    Perhaps even better than a delicious cake,
    For my dearest sister-in-law;
    She would love it even more
    Than anybody I have met before!

    Her lovely prints of beast and bird
    To some may look a little absurd,
    But are really just the sweetest things
    That you have ever seen with wings.

    I really think that she would love
    To print a lovely little dove
    With the Speedball Fabric Screen-Printing Kit
    So that you can blog it
    On the very lovely Eat Drink Chic!
  166. Jenny or sometimes Bozo | Dec 7, 2009
    I want to make t-shirts and placemats...to start!
  167. Katy_Potaty | Dec 7, 2009
    Hmmm, can't stop thinking about screenprinting now, I think if I don't win, I'll buy myself one for an early christmas gift.
    Still dreaming of printing labels for marmalades, jams and chutneys.
  168. Maria | Dec 7, 2009
    I have been thinking that making shirts with my kids would be a great next project but didn't really know where to start. Seems like this kit might be the perfect thing to get us started. Thanks for the great giveaway
  169. nayana | Dec 7, 2009
    I wish I could win this so I could sit down with my beautiful son who is nearly 5 and create some magic. When I watch him being creative something truly special happens to him and some of my most beautiful times with him are when we sit and create together.
  170. Sophie | Dec 8, 2009
    This is definitely on my Christmas list! I could do so much stuff with this like printing white on Kraft paper and of course T-shirts!
  171. I'd love to screenprint my own patterns on fabric to make some cute bags!
  172. ohmygosh, the possibilities are endless! but i think i'd start with tees for my family for christmas. :)

    xo

  173. All my designs seem to feature apples, birds and chairs so I would probably screenprint a combination of those things onto some canvas bags and give them as presents. Then I would make some pillowcases. And then some teatowels. And after that probably some tshirts!
  174. joanna | Dec 8, 2009
    i have been wanting to try screen printing forever but have no clue how to start! i love making my own cards and presents for my friends and this will be a great way for me to start.
  175. mary | Dec 8, 2009
    I would love the speedball screen printer as it would inspire my creativity all spring summer autumn and winter. What lovely amazing things I could create, and gifts for all my friends, they can not wait! Cards & T-Shirts, Bags & Framed Cloth, that would keep me from becoming a sloth! Eckersley's and EatDrinkChic a combination I always click, for challenges and ideas galore, there's a screen printing world I can't wait to explore!!!!
  176. Rachel | Dec 8, 2009
    I'm getting all my loved ones 'experience' gifts this year - so this would be perfect for my creative friend to share her talents, ie make me a present!!
