2/12/13 update: This giveaway is now CLOSED. I'll draw and announce the winner later this week.
It's Sew Grateful week! I didn't join in the fun last year, but since I'm having to sit out of all the sewalongs and such right now, I'm excited that this is something in the sewing community that I can be a part of!
It's also my birthday later this month, so I wanted to do a giveaway sometime this month anyway. So let's just do this for both, shall we?
Since I've been spending sooooo much time with the Cambie dress over the last several months, that was the first thing that popped into my head. So for this giveaway, it's going to be your choice of pattern from Sewaholic Patterns!
So you could make your very own Cambie....maybe a little less time-consuming than mine!
Or maybe you want to conquer your fear of knits? Everyone raves about the Renfrew, and for good reason. I love mine, and can't wait to make another several!
you're like me and am desperately in need of pants and shorts. I
haven't tried these myself yet, but I'm super-excited to make the
Thurlow Trousers, and I've seen a lot of great reviews of this pattern around
the sewing blogs, too.
Or maybe you're just learning to sew and you want something simple. In that case, maybe you want her latest pattern, the Hollyburn Skirt! It's based off her Lonsdale Dress, which I made a modified version of last summer, so I know it's a great pattern!
And of course this isn't all of them--she has patterns for jackets, skirts and other dresses up on her site, too, so be sure to check it out!
I'm going to leave this open a little longer than probably most of the Sew Grateful giveaways, since I'm a little late posting it up to begin with. Not quite all the way to my birthday, since that's at the end of the month, but the deadline will be 12 noon, Eastern Standard Time, on February 12. To enter, just leave a comment saying which pattern you'd get. I'll have Tasia ship the pattern directly to you, so this one's open to anywhere!
(One quick edit to say--sorry that the comments aren't showing up right away, I had to turn comment moderation back on due to a massive spambot attack on my last post that Blogger didn't catch! But I am moderating these as quickly as I can, promise!)
And while you're at it, check out the Swap My Stash that Kat and Anne are hosting! I've already had 3 of my pieces claimed, so I'm excited about that. It's a great way to get some less-loved things out of your stash and get some new pretty things in return! I'm focusing more on fabric, since I already did a pretty serious pattern purge within the last year or so, but there's also patterns and some notions up for grabs. You can see everything on the Pinterest board-- just make sure to check the comments because some things up there have been claimed already.
