Sew Mama Sew GIveaway Day

Hello there!!

Welcome to Finding Sweet Land!

My name is Jayme and I love a lot of things, especially quilting/sewing. My giveaway is a lovely little pouch that I made using basic steps from the pouch tutorial from Anna of Noodle-head. I love her tutorials!

I'm also including a charm pack of Lil' Rascals by Chloe's Closet for Moda. I know we all think, one charm pack? If I wanted to make a quilt, I couldn't because it's not enough. BUT WAIT!! Have you seen Debbie's Marmalade Charm Pack quilt?? One charm pack, and a little white yardage. Be sure to go back and read her post about how she adapted a tutorial to work for charm squares!

And third, I'm including a full set of 8 vintage post cards tied together with some vintage trim.




So do you want to win?? There are multiple entries available...

  • Mandatory Entry: Comment on this post and tell me who your creative inspiration is.
  • Follow my blog (+1 extra entry)

That's three possible entries and you can leave one comment per task you complete. Please be sure to have your contact information in your comment if you are a "no reply" blogger. 

Giveaway will close on Friday Dec. 7th at 6pm MT.

Have fun! And get out there and win some stuff!!

  1. My grandmother was my creative inspiration! She taught me to crochet and it's snowballed from there! If it wasn't for her, I don't know if I'd have ever gone into creating things.

She loved to make quilts and various fun things for kids. I learned a lot from her.

  43. My biggest inspiration is my gran, she taught me to sew before I could even read, and she did all sorts of crafts from glass painting to bead work to weaving and she even taught dying with natural dyes. She made clothes for herself (she always looked very stylish and chic) and for me and my brother as well. My grandmother is who I want to be like, and even if she's isn't able to do much of anything anymore, she's still a big inspiration to me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lovely giveaway!! My inspiration is basically about trying new things and learning new skills. If I make a paper pieced block I then have a block but what to do with it - that is when teh cretaivity comes in (but not always successfully!!)
