Sewing 101 Giveaway

::Giveaway is now closed.  THANK YOU for entering!::
I wanted to do this during July, but life got really crazy for my family.  So, how about a giveaway now?


Up for grabs, some fun sewing supplies to get you beginning sewists ready to go.


I've put in lots of fun little items so you can start a few different projects.  First of all, fabric from my stash.  A fun turquoise fat quarter from Moda, and two Joel Dewberry prints, about 1/2 yard each.  I'm including a vintage pillowcase that was embroidered by some relative in my family, (obviously not a close one) that would make a fun nightgown using Gingercakes' tutorial.  Three different bias strips hand-made by me.  One is the extra from an SYTYC project, the black check would make an awesome birthday banner, and some Anna Maria Horner bias just because I am so glad you guys read my stuff! Also included, a couple zippers that would make the  beginnings of some awesome Noodlehead gathered clutches, 3 sets of alligator clips and felt so you can make some ruffle clippies or simple bow clippies, and some of my must have sewing notions...a seam ripper, disappearing ink pen, and fray check.  Oh, and I threw in some gold ricrac from my great-grandmother's stash, just because it looked really cool.  

Here are some close-ups of the loot:






Just a little way to say thank you for reading my ramblings, and wanting to express your creativity.  Really, that's the whole point of my blog.  I share things in the hope of inspiring you to develop YOUR creativity. It's in there, you just have to find what avenues work for you. 

To win, you simply need to comment, one per person please.  The contest will end August 14 at 8pm MST.

Be sure to keep checking the Sewing 101 archive.  I will continue to have monthly guests each first Saturday, and will keep adding to this post when I find great info on other sites.

Have an amazing day!!
