Sew Mama Sew Giveaway on The Sew Convert

Welcome to The Sew Convert’s first giveaway ever! I was a participant in Sew Mama Sew Giveaway last year and had so much fun visiting sewing blogs and getting to know other crafters out there. This year I am more than happy to host a giveaway. I wanted to start with something most crafters would need and want. Fabric!!! Here are three delicious fabric I’ve chosen for this giveaway from right 1) Pigs Galore (Japanese fabric, 1 meter Cotton/Linen blend) 2) An apple a day (Japanese fabric, 1 meter Cotton/Linen blend) and 3) Flower Vine Stripe by Valori Wells (1 yard, 100% cotton).

There is also a grab bag of buttons in a rainbow of colours (various sizes as shown in the photo below)

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment (remember to include your email or blog) and let me know 1) which is your favourite fabric out of the three and 2) what you would create with it.

You can get an additional chance to win by subscribing to my blog (I will have your email in my list of subscribers) and for a third chance to win, you can link back to my blog (remember to click on the link after linking from your blog so I will know and count that as an entry). So, you can get a maximum of 3 chances to win.

Easy?

The entry deadline is by midnight on Thursday, 20 May. The winning entries will be handpicked by my prince and princess on Friday, 21 May and I will announce the winners on the blog.  The first winner picked will receive fabric 1 and the second fabric 2. The comment I like best will receive fabric 3 and the grab bag of buttons.

I will email the winners for mailing information and send the items by Monday, 24 May 2010. I ship internationally. Keep your comments coming!

Blessed Giveaway Day!

ELEPHANT!!

“Elephant….elephant”, perhaps it’s the infectious song from Barney or my son’s constant repetition of it, the creature has definitely inspired me to decorate these two plain white tees into adorable outfits adorned with felt, fabric & buttons. I drew two patterns, one for the adult elephant and one for the baby elephant and cut them from felt. The felt clouds and the fabric elephants’ ears were cut freehand. I then machine sewn the elephants on the tees and hand stitched everything else. Love the button selection as they lend a retro feel to the tees. I am so tempted to make an adult version for myself!
