Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I'm so excited to be a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!! 


I'd like to welcome all the new-to-my-blog readers coming from Sew Mama Sew today!! My regular readers already know about the Happy Little Pouch Hop that my friend Elaine and I are hosting right now. This hop is for all you pouch making enthusiasts! So it's only fitting that my giveaway today should be pouch related!

Today I'm giving away a box pouch and the supplies necessary to make your own pouch! 



The pouch I have for you measures 6" x 4" x 2" and is made from a vinyl coated reusable shopping bag. This is the larger size (with a slight variation) of my PonToms pouch tutorial that I shared last week. 

Also included with the pouch will be the supplies needed to make yourself another pouch that measures up to 7" x 3" x 3"! -Perfect for storing your rotary cutter and other sewing supplies!


To enter just drop me a line down there in the comments! You can write anything you want there to be entered - but if you'd like you can also share something fun (your fav handmade gift, something that inspires you, a story that's funny, etc). Seriously though, you can write anything in that box to be entered! 

(Not related to the giveaway, but If you take a look around the blog here and like what you see - by all means click the "follow/join this site" button over there to the right!)

I'll draw a winner December 7th. Check out the other awesome giveaways here.

Giveaway closed! The winner is Ali who said:


I love that shape, I am not quit successful at box corners yet. I have nothing funny to say right now, because I had 4 cups of coffee and I'm too jittery ;) Thank you for the giveaway!

She'll be contacted soon! Thanks to all those who entered!

  18. What a delightful giveaway!

    Right now I'm creating six doll dresses for a friends niece for Christmas. There's nothing very funny about that though especially considering how frustrating it is turning out to be to sew all those tiny pieces.

  49. I love pouches..yours are beautiful! I think I have no use for them...until I take a trip and end up using ziplock baggies as "containers" for makeup and other things..then I kick myself and say "why dont' you get some pouches!" Or at home and my drawer is filled with stuff, that is all over the place and I say "why don't you get some pouches!"
    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete

  75. I'd love to have a pouch. Making one for myself totally scares me, especially out of that fabric. So if I won you'd be pushing me out of my comfort zone. Which would be good right? And I was just looking at your pontoms last week and admiring how super teeny tiny they are.

    ReplyDelete
