Give Aways


Winner

Thank you to everyone that participated in the give-away! The winner is Helena!

Her comment: “I love scraps. I like to make quilts with them. I also fell in love with sew mama sew scrap busting month lots of ideas there. That I would love to do.”

I have to agree! I love Sew, Mama, Sew tutorials! The next tutorial I’m going to do is the reusable lunch/snack bag. I just picked up 3 really cute oil cloth prints at SewFlakes 1/2 off sale! *Maybe I will start eating healthier lunches if I take them in cute bags?*

Anyway, I will be sending out a box at the first of next week fill with scraps and goodies. I hope you love it!

The Big Huge Mondo Sale at SewFlakes this morning was an insane success! We had people lined-up down Main street waiting to get in as soon as we opened at 7:00am! When I arrived at 7:06 (36 minutes after the time I was suppose to be there…go figure!), via the back door, I had to maneuver my way to the register. Once I got to my “station” I didn’t move from it until 1:45pm! Yes, we were that busy!

All this makes me so glad that the employees were able to shop at the discounted rate for an hour after close of Friday. If we hadn’t been able to I might not have gotten the perfect fabric for my “Birthday Dress”.

Pure Silk

Most of my pictures are taken after dark, so the fabric isn’t as dull as it looks in the here. This silk piece was in the sale area already marked down 50%, but because of the sale it was an additional 50% off! The original price was $24.50 a yard, and bought 3 1/4 yards for $19.91! It is going to be perfect for a cute, fun, flirty, but not to “flaunty” birthday dress.

My only problem is not knowing what pattern to use! To help solve this I put all the pictures in an album on my Facebook where my friends can vote for their favorite. Each vote counts for 1 entry into a prize give-away made custom for the winner, and each person can vote up to three times by clicking the “like” button under their favorites!

More good news about this dress is that I came across as “sew-along” type group in the Sew, Mama, Sew Forum today. It is called “Pattern Challenge” and is being hosted by Sarah.

The idea is that that you make a goal, work towards that goal, and share its progress with the group as you go. If you want to learn more, you can click the badge below.

I’ve never sewn silk before, so this is sure to be an experience. Thankfully, I have until May to get it done!

P.S. If you want to become a friend on Facebook, please include a short note with your friend request letting me know where you found me. Thanks.
