Happy May Giveaway

Yes, I’m still here. It’s been a long, brutal winter and spring is finally here. To celebrate I thought I’d have a giveaway. Since it’s still technically May Day, I guess you could say I’m giving away a May basket. You could use it for all sorts of things. Some ideas right off the top of my head are storing candy, spools of thread, charger cords, business cards, keys, cosmetics and small toys. You could also use it as a thread catcher by your sewing machine to catch all those loose threads you clip as you sew. You guys can probably think of a lot of other uses for it, I’m sure.

threadcatcher_0006AWThe basket is fully lined, reversible and measures 4.5W x 4D x 5H” (depending how far down you fold the top down). I’m thinking of making a pdf pattern of it to sell in my Etsy shop with two other versions (without the bias tape binding around the edge) so that you have some other variations to make and in case you don’t want the binding edge. I’ll let you know if I put the pdf in my shop.

In order to be entered to win this basket, leave a comment below telling me what your sewing projects are for this spring. Or if you’re not a sewer, tell me about any crafting projects you’re working on this spring. Sorry, but this giveaway is for U.S. residents only. I’ll leave it open until Monday, May 5. I will randomly choose a winner and contact you by e-mail. So, make sure you leave your e-mail address with your comment.

For an extra chance to win, you can do so by becoming a follower of my blog. All you have to do is click on the Follow Me button on the right side of my blog; then leave a second comment telling me you’re a follower of my blog. If you’re already a follower, just leave a comment saying you’re already a follower. Good luck!

**The giveaway is now closed. The winner is Kathy H.
Thanks to everyone who participated.**

  1. Man, I love this basket! I’ve been thinking about making one myself but haven’t gotten around to looking for a tutorial yet. Oh yeah – sewing plans…well…I’ve just learned to make skirts, and my friend wants me to make her some kitchen towels with the straps to go over oven door handles, and there are some more purses and bibs in the works. Oh, and I want to try making a blouse (something I’ve never done).

  2. My projects for this spring are quilts for friends celebrating big events–a 40th anniversary and a 50th birthday. Such fun to work on.

  3. I have a lot of spring projects, 2 baby quilts, a graduation quilt and 2 bed quilts for wedding presents!

  4. I’m planning on sewing a couple of skirts for myself and my daughters. I’m still a novice at sewing. So, I’m hoping to expand and improve my skills. I’d love to sew some light, simple pj’s, too.

  5. Gorgeous fabric choices! My spring sewing projects are all swap related…a basket, a mug rug and a mini quilt. Thank you for the chance to win your great creation.


  6. Hi Veronica! Okay, for spring I will be making more Nancy Drew pillows, starting on a baby quilt for a good friend, and also quilting a black and whit quilt that I finished last month.

  7. I’m in full blown wedding mode for my daughter’s nupituals this fall. Table coverings, flower girl tutu’s etc… I think I’ve bought everything blush pink and gold they have at Michaels! lol
