Welcome to SMS Giveaway Day!!

Thanks everyone...we have a winner and the comments are CLOSED!! Have a good weekend!




Hello everyone! How AWESOME is Sew Mama Sew! to offer up a day for all of us to get together and share??! I'm sure we are all busy getting things done before Christmas...I know I am! But I've decided to take time away from all of my gift making in order to cram in some new inspiration! I hope you see something here that will inspire you too. Anyway, I know time is of the essence today, so I will get to it.

I am giving away something custom made FOR YOU!! All you have to do is check out some of my slide shows on the left and figure out WHAT you would like for me to make you! Here is a little collage of things for your "quick-viewing" pleasure.

Giveaway Day will actually last until December 17th, so you will have plenty of time to decide! I am willing to ship internationally, so EVERYONE is welcome to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you would like for me to make you. Since the shipping deadline is December 20th, some items such as quilts or knitted items will NOT be an option...I'm not that fast ya'll! :) I do have a monogramming machine, so make it personal!! Don't see any embroidery designs or appliques that interest you? Make a suggestion!! I have TONS of designs, so it is possible I will have something that you like! I would suggest that because of shipping, Christmas items might not make it on time. :( But if it is a Holiday banner or place mats or hand towels...there is always next year to use them!

Ok...so that's it!! Check out my creations and tell me what you want! Please make sure you leave an email so I can reach you! I will try my hardest to respond to your comments, or visit your blog...ESPECIALLY if you are participating in Giveaway Day! HA! Have FUN today, and GOOD LUCK!! Until later...

***EDITED to add*** My friend Beatrix sells the Elise Doll pattern in her Etsy shop here!! They are soooo easy to make and little girls LOVE them!! If you aren't lucky enough to win and you sew...please check out her shop for this fabulous pattern!! It really is easy and you will make tons of cute dolls!! :) Thanks for all of the sweet comments!

You are so awesome! And since #1 never wins, I am not going to be shy about what you could make for me ;-)
A set of pink minky pants! Yep! I know you are so over making those, but since I won't win, I am allowed to tell you. Oh, and one should have an "A" and the other a "K" embroidered somewhere.
All our kids have a snow day today, so I might even have some time to visit SMS giveaway blogs today.

Amy said...

I think you might be a little crazy for offering this!!! Let's see, I will think further about this should I win...but I would love minky pants for Lily (partly because it would be fun to make you make ANOTHER pair of those things!!!) or perhaps one of those plastic covered bibs for Penny?

Skooks said...

Oh goodnes . . . ANYTHING? How the world could I choose?? I see you've made some fun/funky stuff for kids . . . if I win I might gravitate towards something in that category. Not sure. Or a carry all bag for me. If I get to be selfish. ;)

Eva said...

Ok, here's the thing. You make a lot of stuff. How am I even supposed to pick?

Sarah said...

Such a great giveaway!

My birthday is the 17th, and winning would make the day extra-special.

I think, in the sideshow, I saw a cosmetics bag? Maybe? I think one of those would be really neat, with the words, "One Thing" embroidered on it. It's a little phrase to remind me that there is only on thing important in life...

Homemaker Honey said...

Do you do personalized tea towels? That would be fantastic!

I'm participating in the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! I hope you have time to stop over and enter my giveaway at homemakerhoney.com

Susan said...

Very cute stuff! Wow, what to choose...... I'm having my second child in 3 weeks or so and I have a 3 year old son. I guess I would have to either get a onesie that said " Lucas' little sis" Or maybe a shirt for my son that said "Big Brother" or your personalized diaper cover or bib....hahaha sorry, got carried away. Seriously I would be honored to win any of the items. Thanks for sharing!!

Hi! What a fun idea! I just love the little polka dot outfit for little girls (3T). The one that is short sleeves with shorts. Too cute!!

CMEH said...

I would like to say that I am excited about this giveaway! I see you have a lot of LSU things but I would love something Saints related! Anything Saints related! Thank you so much for such a generous giveaway!

StephanieS said...

I like the style of bag that you made camo print with orange inside but BIGGER. I need like a diaper bag with a shoulder strap kind of thing but I love the fabric flap that folds over the top like in that style bag. I like durable fairly neutral solid color fabric outside with a beautiful print inside. Let me know if this is doable for the giveaway. I really appreciate the chance to win. Have a Merry Christmas. stephspitzer at gmail dot com

whimsygal said...

so generous!! i find it hard to choose but think the pink dress with knitted top is divine and would be great for my 4 year old!!!

Shana said...

I would love to win like a long sleeve t for my 3 yr old son with his name and maybe a rocket on it.

Alyssa said...

This is such an amazing idea. I think I would like the embroidery that says merry christmas in the shape of a tree. Or monogrammed somethings. But I guess I can decide on that rare chance I win. No, I think I want the christmas tree. Yup, that's the final decision, the Merry christmas in the shape of a tree. Thanks for the giveaway!

Sarcastic Quilter said...

Oh how fun and htanks for the chance to win. Since I see you are from Layfatte, LA (the hubs has been trying to get me to move there for a few years now but I'm a north girl) and since I'm a huge LSU fan, I'd love to win this and let YOU decide what to make as long as it's LSU themed and geared toward an adult (i.e., coffee cozy).

I don't have enough LSU gear to decorate with during football season. :D Thank you so much for the chance! (And I'm now a new follower.)

moonsword said...

You do beautiful work...thanks for the giveaway.
I'd choose a 2-yr old's jumper suit with big initial for my little nephew.

Cyndi said...

Hey! What a fabulous give away! If I were to win, I'd LOVE to have one of those LSU T-Shirts. Although I live in Ohio now, I'm from Baton Rouge and STILL a BIG Tiger fan! In fact, I'll be heading for B.R. on the 22nd to spend Christmas with my family (and there would be no rush to get it finished - after the holidays is fine with me!)

Thanks so much for the awesome give away and the chance to win. Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the best in 2011!

P.S. Geaux Tigers!

mamaTAVE said...

Well, this was very difficult because all of your creations are so cute. I think my daughter would love a top similar to the minke one in your previous post. A big "A" monogram would make it extra special, or a rainbow.... Anything with a rainbow is cool these days. Thanks!

AZviaTx said...

I'm going to be a first time granny on the 26th, or so(!) and I would love to gift my new grandboy with a personalized, well, anything! All of your designs are yummy and fun. Since my son is embracing his Irish heritage, to the extreme (tattoos!) I think a design and color scheme that reflects that would be fabulous. Keep up the amazing work and go out and visit some blogs yourself. Have fun. Tina

I love the lap quilts you've made for the fans! Very cute! You are So talented!

Megan said...

Wow you have such great stuff! I am in love with the little kid fun stuff, and am having a hard time deciding on a favorite. I think it's between the tutu and the crown, but those capes are fun too! My daughter is 2, so she would love these!

Thanks!! megancparsons(at)gmail(dot)com

Brandy said...

WoW! What awesome things you make! Its real hard to choose what I like the most, but thinking of my daughter, I know she would love to have a cape. Her favorite things are Dinosaurs, but its real hard to find anything girly that has to do with dino's, Do u have any dino fabric laying around? ^-^' She is my little super hero, and the cape I know would give her extra "super powers". Thank You for the oppertunity to win.

Knititall said...

Wow, that's a very nice idea! You've made so much cool stuff.
I'd like a bag, either like the messenger-style bag (though I'd prefer a more colorful fabric than camouflage, but I won't complain either way) or like the blue-white-beige one in the top slideshow, with stripes on the outside and dots on the inside. But I have no idea if you could make such a bag in the short time - I'd love a simple grocery tote too.

C + C said...

I would love a banner to display at my wedding on o2.o5.2o11 saying, "Just Married." Our colors are black & white with lots of red roses, so whatever of these colors yout have available or you think would work best! I was thinking maybe black and white. Your work is beautiful, thank-you for this giveaway!

what a great giveaway, we get to choose from all these amazing things you make? impossible! well, i'm not picky. i love bags, i collect ornaments and i'm expecting a baby girl, so anything around this is fine by me.
please take the time to head over to my blog to participate in my giveaway too. i didn't make it to the list in time and it's something small, but there's still plenty of time and there are so few participants that you might actually have a chance to win something :)
