Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!


To all of you who are here for the Giveaway Day - Welcome!!
If you're new here feel free to poke about. My favorite things are tiny piecing, precision foundation paper piecing, dense free motion quilting, and pouch making! You can see my finished quilts in the tabs at the top of the page, sorted by year. My pouches are here

Now for the giveaway! 

I'm offering one medium boxed pouch made out of your favorite color of sparkle vinyl (chosen from my vinyl stash). The medium boxed pouch measures 7" x 3" x 3" and it is great for storing sewing notions, make up, or really anything.

  2. I would try to use it for my cosmetics, but seeing that it is super sparkly, my 4 year old daughter would probably steal it from me and use it to store her baby doll accessories.

  3. I would use this as a toiletries bag - I don't want the cap of my toothbrush coming off when I travel, so this would definitely help, and be way more adorable than a gallon sized plastic bag!

  7. I think I should take a stroll down Autumn Lane . (It's my favorite season even though SE Texas doesn't really celebrate Autumn with all it's pine trees) So to continue, I'd pick up some red, orange, yellow and green leaves to stash in my little stash pouch. I could open it up in the winter (yes, just rain here then) and savor all the wonderful colors. I might be inspired by the colors and create a beautiful quilt. AH HA I could call it my 'Inspiration Pouch"

  8. OH man, this sparkle vinyl is amazing! If I won one of these bags, I'd probably use it as a makeup bag.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would put my godson's Legos in them. Actually no, I'd keep it for myself and use it when I travel ;-)
    They're gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  10. oh, i love this! i would probably use it to store pencils / pens / mini-notebook. thanks for the chance and happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'd probaly put my basics in it. Hair brush, a couple of hair bows, post it notes, tweezers, nail clippers, etc. I'm trying to have the house looking neater, so these things are in a drawer and they're getting lost with my clothes.

    Other options, first aid kit complete with character band-aids (I'm a mamma, lol), craft supplies, mamma things, if I'm not careful to put something of mine in it right away perhaps even barbie shoes or toy cars, lol. In all honesty though it would be the first option, I've even decluttering enough things that I have the perfect spot for it in one of my drawers. This would make getting ready and tidying up a breeze! It would also be very practical to keep newborn essentials at hand and organized should the need ever arise again (which probally won't happen, but hey a girl can dream).

  21. Well, considering that we know that I have plenty of vinyl to make my own pouches, if I win, I will tell you to choose someone else (and then you can just give me dimensions for that little flat pouch I was eyeing up yesterday)! Your pouches really are awesome, though, and I really admire the way you are putting yourself out there and selling a bunch!

  33. Well, I measured my crochet hook and that would fit.....so I could use it as storage for my doily making thread. I bet it would look much more appealing than the plastic bag
    I have been toting it around it. LOL

    My needle tatting needles are too long....but that could get me inspired to figure out shuttle tatting!

    Oh wait, I know.....I could finally get on the hexie bandwagon and use the pouch for a travel hexie factory!

  40. I would hide my secret stash of chocolates in it. I could say it is my sewing stuff and no one would ever check. But I could sneak a little sweetness in when I am feeling low. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love these pouches! Because my house is seriously drowning in art supplies, I'd probably use it to stash mine away so they don't mix in with the kids' stuff and disappear forever :)

  48. I LOOOOOOVe the sparkles!!! I have pinned this on my wish list for Christmas!! or my birthday! gorgeous!! what would I put in it? snacks for in my sewing room so they would be hidden and the m&m stealing monsters (ie: my children) wouldn't be able to find them!! It would also make a smashing tampon/pad holder for the back of my toilet making that time of the month so much more endureable and then my kids wouldn't always be asking "what are those things on the back of your toilet for mom?" even though they are NOT supposed to use OUR bathroom since they have their OWN! yes

    ReplyDelete
  49. Why do my pouches never turn out at pretty and amazing as ones you make? Yours are amazing! I would never have thought using vinyl! I get two nights free lodging at a nice casino/hotel in Las vegas 4 times a year (and we all know lodging is half the total cost of a vacation!) and I go all four times even if I don't have money to play slots, so I wander the streets (that doesn't sound good!) and look at people, places and things! I'd keep my travel toiletries in this pouch as is big enough to hold everything...all in one place and nice on the bathroom counter at the hotel!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

Thank you for your generosity.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Welll...if a pouch came to my house, my daughter would probably snag it and then she would put barbies inside or may cookies and juice, you never know with this kid, she loves putting things inside of things and she has a lot of bags.
