NOW CLOSED! Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!
Giveaway now closed – thanks to all entrants! The winner has been announced on another post, which can be found here.
Hello to any new readers, as well as my lovely regulars!
Today I’m joining in with the Sew Mama Sew biannual Giveaway, which will include hundreds of sewing & craft supplies or handmade items up for grabs (see here to check out the rest!). I’ve read other blogs taking part on previous occasions, but this is the first time I’m joining in with a Giveaway of my own.
I’ll fully admit that I’m more of a scrapbooker than a sewer these days, and that my sewing machine gets used more on paper than on fabric, but now and then I make a stitched project. And I still have lots of lovely materials stored from the days when I did more sewing, including the vintage fabrics included in the Giveaway.
My Mother used to use these fabrics to make quilted items when I was just a bouncing baby, and she gave me the left over pieces when she bought me a sewing machine for my 21st birthday. But that was 9 years ago, and I still have lots left, so here’s a chance for you to win some:
One winner will receive a Mini Jelly-Roll of vintage fabric strips, and five ⅞” fabric-covered buttons. PLEASE NOTE this is a Mini Jelly-Roll, not the ‘standard’ size. There are 20 fabrics strips included, 2 each of 10 coordinating patterns. Each strip measures at least 3″ x 20″. Some of the strips are slightly taller or wider, but they are all at least this size. And they have all been cut with pinking shears, by my Mother’s fair hand over 25 years ago (they’ve been stored carefully!).
Though the strips are smaller than the standard Jelly-Roll size, there’s still plenty you can do with them! This post at Tipnut has lots of great ideas for smaller projects, and it’s where I found a Frame Worthy Shot to make a bracelet, which I’ve made with one of the same strips of fabric:
So there’s one idea for the winner! I’ll even include a length of 1″ wide elastic in case the winner wants to make a bangle of their own straight away.
To enter the giveaway just leave a comment on this post – you can just say ‘Hi’ but I’d also love to know – are you someone who scrapbooks as well as sews, or sews as well as scrapbooking?
The giveaway is open until May 25th at 5pm PST, so please comment before this time. I will post the prize to anywhere in the world. And make sure you leave a way for me to contact you, if you’re not easily reached via a Google profile, in case you win and I need to let you know!
The winner will be chosen at random from all comments, and will be posted here by Sunday 27th May.
Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you have a great day! x
