Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway!

Here is my 1st Giveaway. Sew, Mama, Sew is hosting a "May Giveaway Day", and I thought it would be lots of fun to participate. Here are the rules...
  • One entry per person
  • Leave a comment telling me which ONE item you want (there are 3 to pick from)
  • Comments will be open until May 31st at midnight
  • Winner will be picked via Random.org
  • I will mail to the 50 United States (no international shipping at this time)
  • Item will be shipped by June 3rd
  • Good Luck!

Here are the three different items to pick from. Sorry, you only get one, but you can like them all :)

1. Reusuble Shopping Bag! (arrows will be in a different color)The original idea came from Elizabeth Kartcher and this post of hers. The bags are very sturdy and hold 2 gallons of milk side by side. I have my own set of these and use them everytime I go shopping. Here is my original post for this item.

2. Crayon Rolls! (you get to pick boy or girl colors)

Here's the online tutorial from Skip to My Lou that I followed to make these. Pictured above are some samples of crayon rolls that I've made and given away. You will get to pick if you want a boy or a girl crayon roll. I have trucks or airplanes for the boys, and pink butterfly fabric for the girls. Here is my original post for the crayon rolls.

Here's a picture of the crayon roll two ways.
Rolled up ready to travel and all laid out ready to color!

3. Little Artist Drawing Case!

I bought this super cute pattern from CraftApple.com. She has an amazing blog with lot of wonderful ideas, sewing tips and tutorials. Here's the drawing case closed. You will get this exact drawing case. Here's my original post for the drawing case.

Now DON'T FORGET to tell me which one you want!! I'll be checking out all the other giveaways too, so wish me good luck :)

LB3K said...

I love the little artist case! In case I DON'T win, I need to make one for my girls for church and the car!

Robyn said...

Wow.... what great prizes! I would love any of them, but if I had to choose, I think I'd go with the reusable bag...

emtdlb said...

I love the reusable tote. The last one I had fell apart. It looks so nice and sturdy. Great work on all 3 items. The colors are so bright and they all look so professional. Thanks for the chance to win!!!1

Tanya said...

I've been wanting to make a crayon roll for ages, but it always gets pushed to the back of my list. If I won a "girl" one, I could finally cross it off. That counts right? :)

Tammy said...

I'd love the shopping bag! Very pretty!

debbiekl said...

L. said...

They all rock. I'd have to pick the reusable shopping bag because it's super cool. And I need something sturdy to hold 2-liter bottles of soda. I can't tell you the number of times my bottles have ended up busting out of the plastic bags and rolling under the car or through the parking lot.

Beth Workman said...

My dear daughter draws on the backs of our church envelopes, so she would really like the drawing case... Perhaps I should make her something of this sort if I don't win! Thanks for the generous offers.

I am very happy to have stopped in to see your blog though. I never would have thought to make a size to hold two gallons of milk side by side that way. Great idea. Thank you.

You have 3 fabulous things that make it very hard to choose which I would want if I were a winner! I would choose the tote for myself, because I am addicted to reusable totes! Go green! I love the drawing set, but have 3 girls that would fight over it, SO I may just have to buy them each one or the pattern! :o)
