Giveaway Day!

The giveaway is now closed.  Thanks so much for playing, all 88 of you!!  I will be using random.org to choose a winner tomorrow morning, so stay tuned!

It is Giveaway Day over at Sew Mama Sew!  There are literally hundreds of other blogs that are participating, and there are so many fun items you can win!

I'll start off by introducing myself, my name is Crissy.  I love yarn, I love fabric, I love to paint, I guess you could say I love all things crafty.  I'm a shutterbug and would be lost without my camera.  I am a student, I am a mama to three cute kids, I am a wife who has a wonderful hubby that puts up with all of my nonsense, and I live in Seattle where it rains too much.

Now, for the fun part.  Here's what I am giving away...

These are scraps, tons of them, a whole drawer full.  I've been holding onto them for far to long and it is time to let go.  I thought I would eventually make a crazy quilt with them, or sew doll clothes, but it just hasn't happened yet.  These scraps are all sizes, there are even a few bigger pieces of fabric in there.  I thought that perhaps, someone else would be able to use these!  I am also including about 10 small balls of yarn that I have been hoarding for way too long.  I hope they can be used too!

To enter you must leave me a comment.  That's it.  You can say hi, or maybe tell me what your favorite crafty blog is, as I am always looking for new inspiration.  

Rules:
My giveaway is open until Friday, December 16th, 5pm PST.
I will announce the winner on Saturday, December 17th, on this post.
The winner will be notified via email so make sure I have your email!
I will ship out the box of fabric scraps and yarn by December 24th.
I'm sorry but I can't ship overseas, US and Canada only.

If you have questions, please email me at crissybell17 (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. score! thanks for the giveaway. I would looove to win. I make lots of things from scraps. It's my fav thing to do — I would rather organize and iron scraps than use a precious large piece of fabric.

  4. Can I tell you my favorite craft blog is my own? I just say that because my favorite crafts are the ones that I actually finish, not just the ones I look at. What a fun giveaway! I like making small-ish soft toys (I'm giving one away right now, too), so scraps are great! Thanks :)

  5. I have a dozen new favorite blogs a week, so I can't name just one. I am a sucker for great photos. Love those scraps! I make a lot of benefit quilts, so I use a lot of scraps. My kids love scraps, too...they sort them into rainbow order before they make stuff. Merry Christmas!

  16. Hello! Thanks for such a fun giveaway! I love the idea of getting a little peek into your sewing world by receiving your drawer of scraps. What fun!

    One of my favorite crafts blogs is JuneBug's World (she's a good friend of mine who sews beautifully!). I also love Prudent Baby and Stitched in Color.

    Happy Holidays!

  18. Hi! I'm just about going to get ready for bed. It's cold here and it's nice to have a warm quilt to snuggle under!

  19. I'm Michelle, and I live in Olympia, which is about 1.5 hours from you. I have two daughters ages 8 & 10, and I'd love scraps to put towards quilts for them. I've sewn off and on for 17 years, but only recently did anything more complicated than a quillow or a rag quilt or basic clothing mending. My favorite blogs are Chasing Cottons (Bec's Quilt Class 101 is what gave me the courage to start quilting), Sew Bittersweet Designs (Melissa's Vintage Christmas Sampler quilt tutorials are so great!), and Dollar Store Crafts (so many neat & inexpensive projects on there).

  30. I like hearing things from a different perspective so Quiltdad is fun to read. There aren't a ton of boy-crafters out there. One that's not a blog but a web site is http://exhibitions.cooperhewitt.org/Fashioning-Felt/objects/necklace. It's a gathering of lots of artists who've worked with felt. Great inspirations.

  75. I have a box that looks a lot like your drawer. But I really enjoy picking out and using scraps. My husband think its so crazy to take a whole piece of fabric, cut it up and then sew it back together again. But then I cut it up again so it doesn't look like anything and put it back and it turns out beautiful. I love to crazy patch and strip quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
