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.
