Sew, Mama, Sew! is hosting another giveaway day, the day where many bloggers giveaway things they have made or supplies to make things or both. It is great fun to visit a lot of blogs and try to win cool stuff. So fun that I thought I would participate this year.
I had great hopes of making a set of coordinating mother/daughter aprons. But reality reared its ugly head and I came to terms with the fact that my time is not limitless.Instead of aprons, I must continue to spend quality time with yards and yards of red plaid flannel. What am I making? Well, as I tell my children, it is the season not to ask questions... I will be able to let you know sometime after the 25th.
Instead of making something, I went to my favorite thrift store and found some supplies in the form of sheets and pillowcases (some of my favorite raw material). I'm giving away three pillowcases and one twin flat sheet.
I decided to go with bright, springy colors, because if you are anything like myself, it will be spring before you decide what to do with them and then actually do it. The sheet could be turned into a summer skirt or yards of bias tape. It's matching pillowcase could be a sweet little girl's dress.
I love the embroidery on this pillowcase. The bottom of a dress? Or use it to make pockets on something?
This pillowcase has loads of possibility. I love the bright colors, especially with all the grey and white that are outside my window right now.
Cute embroidery you could use on something and three bright yellow buttons.
Here's the back:
So what do you need to do to have a chance to win all of this? It's simple. Leave a comment saying what think you might use some of this for. Be sure to include your email address so I have a way to contact you if you win. One entry per person. I'll ship to the US and Canada. Comments will be open through Friday, the 17th, at which point I will randomly draw the winner.
Thanks for stopping by!
