Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

May 27, 2009


CLOSED TO COMMENTS! 🙂 I’ll be drawing a name later today.

Welcome, those of you visiting for the first time from Sew Mama Sew. I’m glad you’re here!

I’m using this giveaway post as an excuse to get back into blogging. I haven’t posted since the beginning of May *blush*, even though I’ve been sewing quite a bit.

For those of you who are new here, I’m a Christian, wife to my smart computer husband, mommy to three sweet boys, sometime Etsy shop owner (umm….kind of pathetic when my last update was!), seamstress/sewer/whatever the right word is, quilter, baker, homeschooler, reader, babywearer, a little bit crunchy, country girl living in the suburbs. I mostly blog about my sewing, though I reserve the right to post about whatever I feel like. 🙂


And now, the real reason you came here! I’m giving away one yard of this sweet Alexander Henry print, Very Berry. This would make a cute little girl’s dress. I’ll also throw in some random goodies. If there are a lot of comments, I might even do a second giveaway.

To enter, just leave a comment. Edited to add: If you already entered, you’re all good. But if you haven’t, when you leave a comment let me know what you would like to see a tutorial for. Or, if you have no idea, just let me know your favorite thing you’ve ever sewed! To earn 10 extra entries, link to this entry on your blog or Twitter. Just let me know by leaving another comment. Disclaimer garbage: sorry, only open to USA (unless you want to pay shipping difference)! Giveaway ends Sunday night or when I pick a winner, whichever comes last!

Come back later this week (or maybe next week….I’m trying to finish up a mini-wardrobe and I’m making jeans!) for an even better and bigger giveaway!

  11. May 27, 2009 6:09 am

    the fabric is so cute! I love strawberries! I checked out your etsy shop and I would love to see a tutorial on how to make those hot/cold flax compresses. But would a tutorial on that affect your business?

    Fabric looks lovely. I am a novice and am having fun trying to sew all sorts of things (limited in time by a job and two little girls). Most recently a shirred top for my 8 yo – thanks to the tutorial from Portobello pixie

  13. May 27, 2009 6:36 am

    I would like to see tutorials for sewn items that don’t require the use of a machine. We don’t get along very well! LOL!

    I love that fabric. Alexander Henry is one of my favorite fabric designers. My most favorite thing I have ever sewn was a Halloween costume for my son when he was three. It was a Clifford costume. He looked sooo cute in it.

  15. May 27, 2009 6:58 am

    I LOVE this fabric! My favorite things to sew are quilts and dresses for my girlies. I love tutorials– I am trying to find a good one about making labels.

  23. May 27, 2009 8:30 am

    That’s a great fabric. I’m not so sure about the tutorial, but I’ve been enjoying making all sorts of bags recently! And of course, there are all those WIP quilts floating around my apartment.

  26. May 27, 2009 8:49 am

    I love tutorials (with lots of pictures) for quilt patterns/blocks, table runners, aprons, and things like adding rickrack to quilts, different ways to bind quilts and simple ways to do the more complex steps of quilting.

  29. May 27, 2009 9:24 am

    oh cute fabric!!! my favorite project was one i did with my 7 year old daughter. she designed and sewed the top for her own quilt. I did the machine quilting. i am so proud of her!
    I need tutorials for binding and any help with machine quilting. The simpler, the better! thanks.

  30. May 27, 2009 9:37 am

  32. May 27, 2009 10:10 am

    What lovely fabric! My daughter would look so cute in that… 🙂

    I have not yet dared to sew any clothes, so anything appropriate for a rather small toddler would be awesome!

  33. May 27, 2009 10:12 am

    That fabric would make an adorable dress or skirt. I like to sew anything for the kids and also make gifts for people.

  34. May 27, 2009 10:19 am

    Thanks for entering my giveaway!

    As far as a tutorial I’d love to see- I’d love to know how to make a quilted zipper pencil/pen bag. I do a lot of sketching and would love to make something pretty to carry my writing instruments around in.

  75. May 27, 2009 3:23 pm

    I’m trying to find a tutorial on making a child’s kimono dress. But in general I like anything that shows me how to make something without a pattern.

    Thanks for parting with such adorable fabric!

    (also, my favorite things I’ve sewn are a dress I made for my little one’s first birthday… kind of a pinafore style, a wedding dress, and matching dresses for my girls out of a sheet… very old fashioned and sweet.)

    myy favorite thing I’ve ever sewn? hm… i’d have to say my hand-pieced hand-quilted original-pattern quilt, made out of silks and satins and quilter’s flannel, for my boyfriend’s christmas present. it was made while i was working in Ireland and studying in Spain; it’s been though five airports with me, seven or eight bus trips, three homes, etc. I’ve been through a lot with that quilt – and it’s the quickest quilt i’ve ever done as i was on deadline – six months from start to finish!

  110. May 27, 2009 9:00 pm

    I love that AH print! it would be perfect for a dress for my daughter. my favorite thing i’ve sewn is a quilt made from the embroideries of my son’s drawings (confusing to explain…see my blog for a picture!

  111. May 27, 2009 9:12 pm

    Very fun! I would love to see a tutorial for a nursing cover or baby sling. Hope I win! Thanks!

    I love that fabric and have a coordinate that would make a beautiful Miss Molly for my 14 month old daughter. I love making her dresses. My favorite one so far was The Flower Girl dress from Weekend Sewing. As far as a tutorial, this may sound like a simple technique but I stink at it, easing in fullness. Needed all the time with dresses and I just can’t get it. My mom tried showing me but lets just say her teaching style doesn’t fit my learning style. LOL!

    First off, I really like your blog. Second, I’d love to see tutorials for little boys clothing – it’s not hard to find ideas for girls out there on the web, but for our little men, it’s another matter. Thanks for hosting the giveaway – the fabric is lovely!

So far my favorite things that I have sewn are two pairs of pajama pants for my son that I made from a thrifted long sleeve T-shirt. They were one of my first projects that wasn’t a blanket. They definately look home-made, but that makes me like them even more!

    I would love to see tutorials for dresses or shirts that I could use to make clothing for my granddaughter. One can never have too many of those to choose from right!?

    I think my favorite thing in the past year that I’ve sewn would have to be the breast cancer tote/purse I made to give to my MIL after she had her 2nd mastectomy just a year after her first one. It turned out just beautiful and she showed that off to everyone who came to visit her. Everyone that saw it wanted one which made me feel just great.

    I’d love to see a tutorial on smocking. Oh and one on vintage aprons.

    I have no idea on the tutorial (too late at night) but I enjoy the simplicity of making raglan shirts for my son, and I also enjoy the complicatedness of sewing doll clothes for my niece !

    My girls love strawberries! Thank you for your generosity! I need a tutorial for a purse insert. I haven’t seen one of those around and I think it was brought up in the SMS forum some time ago, but it was just a link to place to buy an insert!

    I would love to have this to make a dress for my grand-niece and then make a doll with a matching dress . I think it would be too cute

    I always like tutorials on bags. They are fun quick projects.

  243. May 31, 2009 9:51 am

    that material is so, so sweet! my favorite sewing projects are definitely things for my daughter – i recently made one of these which was easy, but super high impact – we both LOVE it!

    beautiful fabric!!
    I love to see tutorials for any thing kid related. I’m a pretty new sewer, and so far, pretty much everything has been for my DD.

    Great print – can’t wait to see what the “extras” are!

  246. May 31, 2009 10:23 am

    I am always looking for an easy shirt tutorial. The fabric is great! I have a good friend who is expecting a girl this summer, so I’d love to use it for her.

    I also linked to you on twitter. (@abbyhendricks)

    My sister’s little girls would benefit from this give-away–I just bought some cute dress and hat patterns that would work great!
    Speaking of, I would love any tutoral for boys clothes if you have any thoughts up your sleeve (as a mother of boys, I’m hoping you do!) — any cute pattern for a boy is hard to come by and I have a 13 month old boy that may have to run around in a dress just so I can say that I made something for him! 🙂

    I love the berries. I am working on quilted kitchen rugs currently!

    My favorite thing that I have sewn is my lunchbag. It was the first thing I made when I taught myself to sew last year.

  251. May 31, 2009 3:50 pm

    I love this fabric! Since I’m new to sewing, I’d love to get my hands on any tute that’s easy to follow. I’ve made a denim purse from an old pair of jeans, an appliqued pillow w/my daughter’s name on it, and I’m in the middle of making my MIL a quilt. I don’t know what my favorite thing is since I’m still new to it but I do enjoy the creative expression it gives me.

    I’m a Christian, homeschooling, sewing, quilting, married to a brilliant computer guy, WOMAN as well. Nice to meet you.

    this fabric will fit in the my strawberry fabric collection I’ve had going for years. I have my kitchen done in strawberries and I collect strawberry stuff.

    You should come down to Plant City, FL for our strawberry festival we have in the spring. It could be a homeschool field trip. 🙂

    I would like to see a tutorial of a reversable wrap skirt. I know there is one out there, but I can find it any where. I would like to see more sewing for boys or men out there. My son grew an inch last month. I need some new clothes for him.

    Take care. I look forward to seeing you again. I’m keeping your blog in my favorites.

    I love making bags/totes, but am currently attempting a toddler back pack for my little guy. Hope it works! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

    My favorite thing I’ve ever sewed is a bag I made for my sister-in-law. I used the Amy Butler Birdie Sling pattern, and three different fabrics, and it turned out so great. I wanted to keep it so bad! 😉
