Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!!!

Comments are closed!!! Winners are listed here!

It's here! It's here! It's finally here!!!

This is my second time participating in Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day. Hundreds of awesome blogs participate, giving away supplies for sewing, knitting, crafting, quilting as well as handmade items- bags, skirts, kiddo clothes, dolls, jewelry... You name it!!! You get to "meet" lots of new bloggers and maybe win prizes! What's not to love? Just like last time, I have three prizes up for grabs today.

First up I have this adorable table runner kit.

I bought this at Nancy's Notions annual warehouse sale (the first photo is theirs). It was so cute and I knew Giveaway Day was coming, so I grabbed two. It includes the pattern and all the fabric you need to make this cute table runner for Spring! And hey, if a Posie table runner isn't your thing, gift the pattern to a quilting friend, and it's free fabric for you! The second picture shows the fabric, but not the pattern or the big purple ric rac that's included!

Next up, a Clover 1" bias tape maker. I bought myself one a few months ago and it's so much fun. I liked it so much that I bought myself a multi-pack with lots of different sizes, so I expect I'll be using lots more bias trim in the near future! I wanted to share the fun with you- create your own bias tape to match any project! No more "close enough" colors for your trim!


And last, a lovely little stack of vintage 2.5" fabric squares. This is another set of the squares I mentioned in my hexagons post. There are over 100 squares, all of them different! You have so many options with these- make hexagons, try out the quick-piece squares, make fabric baby blocks, cover buttons, or use them for all kinds of quilt patterns! Here are just a few of my favorite prints:
And here's the whole stack:

P1040879

To win, just comment on this post! I'll draw three names using the random number generator, and the prizes will be awarded in that order: First name wins the table runner kit, second wins the bias tape maker, and third wins the squares. I'd be ever so happy if you'd follow my little corner of the blogosphere, but it's not a requirement for entry and won't get you an extra entry. Equal chances for all! I'll close the giveaway late at night on Thursday, May 20 and will announce the winners then! Good luck and have fun visiting all the fabulous Giveaways today!
