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.

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.
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...
