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!

I’m always curious about how people learn how to sew and when in life they started sewing. So, in order to enter this giveaway, answer these two questions:  Who taught you how to sew? And at what age did you learn to sew? If you’d also like to share any beginner sewing triumphs or disasters, go for it! I’d love to hear about them. I’m truly sorry, but this giveaway is for U.S. residents only.

1st Blog Anniversary Giveaway

Today is the first anniversary of my blog. So I’ve decided to have a giveaway. If you missed out on my previous giveaway last year, here’s another chance to win one of my elephant pincushions. I love making these little guys. Not only are they cute, but they’re very practical and hold a lot of pins.

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I started this blog. It seems like I just started it. I’ve really enjoyed blogging and hope to do it more regularly this year. Now that winter is almost over, I can see that actually happening. This winter I’ve been in hibernation mode. But now that the sun has reemerged and the days are getting longer, I feel my creative juices starting to flow again.
