May Giveaway Day!



So today is the May Giveaway Day! When I saw the post about it on Sew Mama Sew, it sounded like a great idea; checking out different blogs, signing up to win stuff! What's not to like about that?

It was so hard to choose what to make as my giveaway. I have this cute, country looking set of 2 pot holders and a hot pad. Hmmm, that might be nice!

Or... I have a cute set of coasters that I made. Those could be fun.

Or... Choices! Choices!

In the end though, I decided to give away something to make. That is the best part- making things! So in the spirit of making things, I am giving away one of our patterns to make your own adorable wallet along with the fabric, vinyl and zipper. It is super easy!




This is what one of mine looks like. They really are quick and fun and they make great gifts. The pattern comes with directions for a little coin purse as well, so I will make sure you have enough stuff to make both.

Here are some of the fabric options I have been auditioning. I may play some more before the final package goes out!




And because, while making the things is really the fun part, it is always nice to receive something made by someone else! So, I will also include a little bag I made and I will fill it with some goodies.




So here's what you do. Leave a post and let me know if you want to win the pack with the blue fabrics, the green fabrics or with the pink and purple fabrics.
And make sure I know how to get back to you. On May 26th, I will pull a name, probably from a hat. (I know there is the whole random generator thing; I like pulling a name.)

Comments are now CLOSED! Good Luck!

  1. What an awesome giveaway! That wallet is super cute. It is the perfect giveaway for people such as myself who love to make stuff, especially small quick projects. :) It would look wonderful in all those fabric choices, but my choice would have to be purple and pink.
