Sew Merry! Book Giveaway

November 30, 2011, 15:25 pm  Posted by Lark
 

So, friends, the holiday crafting season is in full swing… or has been for weeks if you planned well! Every year, I find myself with lofty goals for handmade goodies, spend a good bit of time figuring out just what to make, and then I promptly make myself half crazy trying to finish everything before the holiday (which usually involves at least a few one-week-later gifts). Sound familiar?

This year, I’ve forgone all of that…but I salute everyone who’s hard at work sewing handmade gifts. May your needles be swift, your fabric enough, and your sewing space filled to the gills with merriment! To celebrate your holiday craftiness, we’re offering a sewing book bundle giveaway, with loads of projects perfect for making and giving.

Enter below for a chance to win these books: 100 Pretty Little Projects, Stash Happy Felt and Patchwork, Pretty in Patchwork Doll Quilts, Fa La la La Felt, Sewn by Hand, and Book of Bags.

To be entered, please leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Wednesday, December 7. Any comment is fine—though we’d love to hear what holiday gifts you’re sewing this year. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Friday, December 9. Comments for this giveaway are closed! We’ll announce the winner soon.

Click here for the official rules.

    what a fun giveaway! I’m working on a couple super secret sewing projects right now for Christmas! Shhh!

    I’d love to know what holiday gifts I’m going to sew! I haven’t quite worked that out. (This is the part where I shrug and eat lots of cookies instead of actually getting to work on the gifts.)

    Erin N. says:

    Thanks for the contest! I’m mostly knitting this holiday, but I do have a prayer/meditation mat on my husband’s wish list that I’m going to try to sew myself.

    Christie Bradley says:

    I have a four month old who will not allow me to set her down for more than a few minutes as a rule, so I am not making presents this year!  I am buying handmade presents to give to most of my family though.  Etsy ftw!

    I’m working on dishtowels with a dress “hanger” attached. I would love to win, thanks for the opportunity!  Good luck everyone!!

    Paula says:

    I am going to attempt a table runner; actually kind of shooting from the hip since I can’t seem to find just the right pattern. At any rate, thanks for the chance to win the books; my library can always make some more room!

    Jane says:

    I will be sewing scarfs for my mom and my “hopefully somewhen to be mother in law”. My twin boys will be receiving an I-Spy quilt each. Not sure about everyone else – I might know later on this week (I took two days off from work to have time to sew a bit…)

    I’m making a stocking for the youngest kiddo (#4), some felt bracelets, and of course, dozens upon dozens of cookies.  Thank you for such a fun giveaway!

    Sarah Cody says:

    VickiT says:

    Wow. What an awesome group of books. I would surely have NO excuse short of being in the hospital for not making all sorts of gifts for the next year. lol

    I love making things and it really depends on my mood as to what I make each year. For the past few years it’s been machine embroidered items and free standing lace ornaments. This year I’m working on table runners and stockings (I hope to get to the stockings) and while it’s not crafting, I always make homemade candies for many gifts during the holidays as well. The past few years I haven’t made near as much as I used to because of my health problems but I do love baking and making the candies since everyone just loves them.

    Woolensails says:

    I am making small pillows and stuffing them with crushed pine, so my friends can have the smell of fresh pine.

    Cabnet_33 says:

    I plan to embroider a couple of placemats plus matching napkins to give this year. I might also play around with stitching some Christmas cards.

    martinmosaics says:

    I have just begun to get into wool felt applique! I’m having so much fun! I have mad a few miniature mittens and stockings to give to friends. I actually just found a wool felt applique candle mat to give to my brother and his wife. BUT, I am going to shoot for Dec. of 2012. That gives me plenty of time…..to procrastinate,, but also to get it finished. If I am making Christmas presents, I find that the best time to make them is during the summer. If I don’t get them finished in the summer, they do not get finished. Once school starts in the fall….we’re off and running!! No time for my creative ventures.

    Eileen DiPietro says:

    Just finished a quilt for my sister, a few Christmas trees, and whatever else I can squeeze in.  I would love some inspiration from those books though.

    Lambsrewes says:

    This year, I am crocheting a little bolero jacket and sewing a tiered, swingy skirt for my granddaughter, crocheting a hat with ear flaps for my grandson, and making small screenprinted bags for my homemade sachets and tub teas for the women I love.  I would love to screenprint some silk scarves, if I can find the blanks I bought last year. . . !

    This year I will make a cover for notes for my friends.
    I will concentrate in felt creation.

    Bye Roberta

    So excited this holiday season with family visiting.  I’ve been making felt ornaments, embroidered totes bags for coworkers, crocheted scarves and snowman wall quilt.  Busy aren’t I?  Season Greetings to All!

    Christie Bradley says:

    I normally make Christmas presents for at least one person on my list but sadly this year I’m not sewing for anybody.  I am working on plans though to embroider and sew a one of a kind, customized stocking for my baby daughter to use next year.  It’s going to take some serious designing because it is inspired by the Rohirrim flag as shown in the Lord of the Rings movies and her name will be done in Tolkien-inspired script.

    Kristin says:

    Surprisingly ,I’m not really doing a lot of sewing for Christmas gifts this year, but I am doing some knitting and embroidering! :)

    Holiday gifts I am sewing this year include a pink puffy dress, Purses, guitar pillow, wall hangings.  Handmade gifts are the best to give because you know they don’t already have one!
