Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

So I was messing around with my blog header to make it a bit more sew-y and came up with this



But in the process messed up did something not according to plan, so I had to revert to a text only header. Oh well! In the mean time, I was thinking I'd offer up a hand-made good! I'm Jennifer and I love to sew, quilt, swap and make.

And I've been making a hoop pocket sewing kit and making sure it's extra cute with a little embroidery



I'm not sure that this will end up being a hoop for the person I'm giving it to as they have one already and I have some other ideas I can use. (A-if you see this, don't worry, there are still surprises for you :) )



*Giveaway Now Closed*
Would you like one too? I'd like to make you your own. Let me know in the comments what color or colors you like and I'll make you one if you win! The only caveat is that I'm not sure a hoop would survive a trip overseas in an envelope. So if you win and you're overseas you have the choice of risking it or having me make you a non-hoop sewing kit. Your choice :)

Now if you'd like to become a new follower that'd be lovely but it's not required. If you do, make sure to come back Sunday and I'll do a giveaway just for you. Sew Mama Sew giveaway link here.

Giveaway ends May 16th at 12 a.m. MST (That's 12 midnight). Winner will be notified within three days. Winner picked by Random Number Generator and will be notified here and by email.

  3. I love the colours that you have there! I have some of the Red Riding Hood fabric at home waiting for me to figure out what to use it for. I love purples, too.

  4. your new header design is awesome! I hope you figure out how to put it up top of your blog {I love your blog name, too} I love all colors except pink. I know, I'm strange, but pink and I really aren't getting along right now ;)

  10. What a neat idea, to use an embroidery hoop for a sewing kit. I love the colors you are working with in the photos, red and teal, but am also a fan of green and purple, or green and pink. Thanks for stopping by my giveaway today.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love the fabrics and colours you have posted, they are my favourite. I live in Canada so I am sure the hoop will survive the trip.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really like a combination for pink and grey. I live in Australia so perhaps a sewn one rather than a hoop would travel more safely (if I'm the winner)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my goodness! I love this! I have a little Red Riding Hood fabric left over from a dress I made my daughter and am making a quilt for her toddler bed, and I'd love a hoop kit with it! :) coralbunnyandlo [at] gmail [dot] com

  20. love this! I like pool blue/aqua and orange together, but I've also never met a color combo I don't like as long as they're vibrant!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This looks really fun . My favourite colours together at the moment are aqua, red, and white and as I live in England i think I would go for a different kind of sewing kit because I am not sure a hoop would make it here safely. Love the blog name by the way. xx
