Do you guys know about the Sew Mama Sew site? There are literally hundreds of tutorials on there, as well as some great ideas for sewing with kids. There is also the wonderous thing that is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day.
"Hmm..." you say, "that sounds intriguing. What exactly is that?"
Twice a year, Sew Mama Sew is host to hundreds of giveaways for handmade items, patterns, fabric, and notions. It's gotten so big that a single day can't contain it anymore; now it's more like giveaway week. Not only is it a great chance to win stuff, but it's an opportunity to go through all the links and find those hidden gem blogs that you might not otherwise be aware of. I tend to go through and browse all the sites, and find at least a couple that I keep reading. Despite the odds, I enter all of the giveaways that I'm interested in, and consider it a day well spent.
This past giveaway day, I finally won something! Just this week, I received a lovely package of cotton fabric scraps that are going to come in very handy for future projects.
Aren't they lovely?
So, thank you very much to Kristin and Beth at Sew Mama Sew for hosting such a comprehensive giveaway, and to Kerry of PennyDog Patchwork for the beautiful scraps!
