Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day--Sewing

Today is the big Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I have two giveaways--a sewing one and a quilting one! I'm giving them each their own posting to avoid confusion when drawing a winner, so enter for both or just one, its totally up to you.



Sewing Giveaway!!!

Welcome to my little giveaway for sewing---I'm not going to keep you long, because I know you want to get back to entering for other goodies.  I love sewing crafts, quilts, and clothes.  So I already have the other giveaway (linked above), but I wanted one more for all of you fashion sewing enthusiasts.  A few of my favorite sewing related items for you to enjoy--or maybe to even get you started sewing in the first place.

Awesome, right?  I

Here's what's included in the sewing giveaway:

Threads magazine  (I love the inspiration, tips and techniques this magazine and its website has)
Sew What! Skirts by Francesca DenHartog  (a start into making your own pattern, so easy to follow, you'll find your creativity really gets going)
1 yard of Pro-Sheer Elegance Fusible Interfacing from Fashion Sewing Supply (this is THE interfacing place, warning:  awesome interfacing is addicting)
5 yards of 3/4 inch White Pro-Stretch Elastic from Fashion Sewing Supply (you won't go back to that icky kind at JoAnns after this)

That's enough elastic for (depending on waist size) at least 6 skirts or pjs and a yard of interfacing will last you through quite a few projects--so no excuses about not sewing!  I've given links for you to check out the details if you want or, if you don't get lucky and win, to get some for yourself.  Pam Erny runs Fashion Sewing Supply and she is just absolutely lovely to work with, so don't hesitate to ask her a question.

I'll ship internationally and the giveaway is open until May 25th, 5 pm (maybe a bit later if I'm still eating dinner). Please, make sure that if you have left me an email to contact you with--if I can't contact you, I'll have to pick another winner, and that would just be sad.

So leave a comment telling me your current/next fashion sewing project to enter. You're welcome to become a follower (I love followers), but it is not necessary to win.

So, here's another look at what you're commenting for:

I love all this stuff--maybe I should comment on it myself!
Come back soon!

Update  5/25/12:  This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you to all who participated.  The winner will be announced soon.

  72. What a great giveaway! I just finished making up my children's clothing for the summer & am about to pack away my sewing machine for our upcoming move. I have a lot of clothes I'd like to make for myself but I need to lose a little weight first. (Isn't that awful? But I hate to waste the fabric on things that will fit me now, but I know that once we're in our new home & I am fixer-upping and cycling everywhere again it'll all be too big!) xo

  76. I'm making a summery shirt for myself using my old favorite shirt as a pattern (it has a hole in it now)-it's kind of halfway between a cap sleeve and a tank top-ends up being a tank top usually because it has drawstrings at the shoulders, which sounds weird but is actually super cute.

    ReplyDelete

  80. the only fashion sewing I've ever done is clothes for my baby nephew, but I'd love to make myself some skirts.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have been reluctant to make things for myself, because I always feel like I need to lose weight - as though chubby people don't need to wear clothes. But this spring I am going to try the Built by Wendy pattern I bought for myself. Probably won't be the next fashion sewing, because the clamoring kiddos always have a long list for me - as though I am superwoman. Sigh.

    I'd love to see what the difference between good and regular elastic is. I never even knew there was good elastic.

    ReplyDelete
