Giveaway Day December 2011


Hey all!

It's time for another giveaway (or two or three or thirty), as Sew, Mama, Sew! is hosting another of their great Giveaway Days.  I went crazy last time they hosted one, looking at countless blogs to decide whose giveaways to pursue and whose blogs I'd like to follow. I still follow a few blogs from that experience, though it was such a blur I can't say I remember more than a couple follows' origins.

This time, I am fortunate enough to have things to giveaway and to participate on the other side of the coin on this event. (I'll still enter other giveaways, mind you.)

There are a few things I'd like to offer as giveaways, which means we'll have a few winners instead of one over here. Because there are so many clumped into this one post, I apologize ahead of time for the length of it. Bear with me, please, as I think the items up for giveaway are worth the look.

I received these patterns in a clothing/craft swap from my cousin, but I do not often make things for children, and thought I'd share the bounty. I have NOT gone through each of the patterns to determine their contents. Each set of patterns is sorted by age/size and come with some fabric that may be appropriate to use for the pattern. I apologize for not having more gender neutral fabrics, but I seem to have a limited supply of them.


 This first set of patterns are for size 1/2 and 1 and are accompanied by about a yard of pink corduroy. I could totally see a little girl running around in a pink corduroy robe on Christmas morning!



The second set of patterns is for size 2 and will come with about two yards of flowery cotton. The cotton should be just enough to make a pajama set or a dress, but you may need to supplement with some contrasting fabric.



The third set of patterns is for size 6. Since these patterns are for bigger kids, I sadly do not have any fabric that would be an appropriate match in terms of type or amount. I do have some fancy white brocade-like fabric (synthetic, I think) in two 1-yard cuts and a little under a yard's worth of gold/green tie dye cotton that I'm adding into the mix. They won't do for these patterns, but may be fun for making doll clothes or on other smaller projects.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on which of the three sets you would like to win and your favorite childhood outfit. It will help to leave your e-mail, which you can leave in the name (at) mail (dot) com format to decrease risk for spammers. Or any other strange code that you'd like really as long as I will know how to reach you should you win.

You are welcome to follow me for additional entries and let me know in the comments. It can be this blog, my tumblr account, or my twitter account if those are of interest to you. I don't rightly care, as long as it's something that you find to be worth your time.

I'll do a random draw for each pattern set once the giveaway closes on December 16 at 5 p.m. PST, and will then post the winners soon thereafter, no later than Sunday, December 18.

In the meantime, feel free to browse the rest of my site. There's a wide range of subjects I touch on, so I hope you find something of interest. And, check out my novice sewer resource page, if you're just starting. Let me know if it's missing any resources you'd like to see on there. You can reach me at sneakfuzz (at) hotmail (dot) com.

Happy Sewing!

  10. These are lovely!!!! I think I like the first set best, but with 5 littles from 18M-12Y I'd be delighted with either! :) Thanks for the chance!

    One of my favorite childhood outfits was a blue striped seersucker dress, I still have it! I wore it every single time it was clean! I was worried my mom would eventually hide it from me, but luckily she didn't!

  15. I would love the size 2 set. My child is a little giant and fits pattern sz 2 at 17'months because of the height!!
    My favorite childhood outfit would have to be a little blue linen dress with a lace collar. My grandmother bought it for me when I was four and I would only wear it with my Punky Brewster shoes hhahha not that it matched;)

  16. I really loved a sweatshirt I got at a ski race I went in - it's from 1994 and I still have it! I'd love the littlest patterns - very cute!

  24. I would love the third set, for the boys pajamas and the dress. My favorite childhood outfit was a white eyelet dress my mom made for my first communion. I remember at the time being frustrated it wasn't as fluffy as the other girls, but looking back, I realize how much love my mom put into sewing my clothes when there wasn't money to spend on new things.

  36. Do I really I have to choose a favorite?! They are all darling.. Maybe then 1 then 2 then 3... Lovely :) My favorite clothes as a kid? I had a pair of floral print, elasticated denim shorts.. I would wear them every day that they were "clean"...

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love the first set. My favourite dress as a child was made by my mum and had a rainbow of ricrac around the bottom of the dress and a witch on a broom on the top half. It was green and really comfortable. And my mum kept it for me so my little girl can wear it when she is big enough.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love the second set BUT my daughter is now too big, so please put me down for the third set. I was a tomboy but used to get my mum to make me a special birthday dress each year that I would wear once for my birthday and after that just admire. My favourite of these was from when I was around 6 or 7: it was quite fitted with short sleeves and a mandarin collar and a couple of lovely buttons on the front, and it was made from the most gorgeous cream red and blue ribbon fabric. I still have it and still admire it every now and then!

    PS I am following you now too...

  45. I really love that pink corduroy, and LOVE the idea of making it into a robe. My daughter is bigger than size 1, but I feel like I could make it work. I had a Christmas dress that my mom made for me when I was little, and my little girl actually got to wear it this year! It was really cool to see that.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'd pick the smallest size. I can remember a green/red plaid dress from when I was about 6 and I had a belt for it! it was a slim leather belt and the buckle was a little Scottish terrier!
