Today is Give-Away Day!

One of my absolute favorite blogs, Sew, Mama, Sew, has declared today Give-Away Day! I slipped my blog in just under the wire to participate.

Here's how it works. Today, lots and lots of crafty bloggers are all giving away something hand crafted or items to aid and abet a hand-crafter. You can enter to win by leaving a comment on their individual blogs. I love this idea because it's always cool to win something but even cooler to find crafty blogs!

Here is my give-away item. It's the first of my Padded Pouches:


I am especially charmed by the interior:


I'm a sucker for a good stripe.

Unlike my other pouches, this pouch is a little smaller and padded with cushy fleece. It's got a cozy feel and the fleece adds some extra protection for anything delicate that lives in the pouch. I'll be adding this pouch to my shop later today.

To win this pouch, leave a comment answering this question:

"What is the greatest prize you've ever won?"

Post your comment by 7:00 pm (PST) on Friday, December 5th, and my random number picker (ie, whichever kidling is closest to me at picking time) will select the winner. I'll ship off the pouch early next week and pay for domestic or international shipping.

Thanks for playing and go check out some other blogs!

I love the fabric combo, and the colors.

pigbook1 said...

I have won some fabulous yarn, but my favorite was when I was a kid. I won a coloring contest and got a gift certificate to the grocery store and my mom let me buy whatever i wanted!

tammiemarie said...

The greatest prize I've ever won was a $50 gift cert to a costume company, for placing third in a kid's cake decorating contest!

Crunchy Crafts said...

kristin said...

My favorite prize was some tickets to a Better then Ezra concert that I won from a local radio station. I never win things so that ended up being a nice surprise.

Hannah Stevenson said...

I remember I won a little walkman that only played a certain radio station that was doing the give-away. I'll never forget it was "Y-95" and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

Love what you are offering! SO CUTE!

Hannah said...

I won the lottery with my husband! He is certainly the best! Love the bag, please enter me!

B said...

I'm a sucker for good stripes too.

Funny thing, I just won something for the first time ever a couple of days ago. It is an Amy Butler pattern. So I'd have to say that is the best, but only because it's the only one I've ever won! Let's just say the winning charm doesn't ever find me! No offense to Amy Butler either, as I think I am going to love her pattern!

Casey said...

I haven't won much in my lifetime but when I was a kid I loved winning cakes in the cake walk game

Gigi said...

Awesome give away. The best prize I ever won....$$$$

Meadow said...

I won an itty bitty iPod from my work. I love it. SO much nicer than the classic iPod.

Debra said...

what a great fabric choice!! :pve ot!!
The greatest prize I ever won was a "food" basket at a carnival when I was young. I thought I had hit the jackpot!!!

Boat Bird said...

When I was at secondary school (what I'd guess is something like Junior High- I was 11), I won the top prize in a raffle- a boom box... being the 80's I was thrilled :) It was great and my mum didnt believe me when I rang her to pick me up from school that evening!

Angela Yosten said...

Love the bag... I wish I could answer this question, however I don't remember if I have never won anything.

Stacey - Elle Belle said...

Great pouch! The best prize I ever won was an opportunity to be on a radio game show I didn't win the game though :(

I think my husband!!!!

kamyrensmiles@hotmail.com

Mommy's Home!! said...

I won a trip to LA to a movie premier about 14 years ago.

Celeste said...

That is just lovely! The best prize I've one is probably a college scholarship--not sure if that counts. In the crafty world, I've won a couple yards of delicious fabric that have been so much fun to work with.

Joanna said...

Greatest prize I ever won? My hubby of course!!!

Annie said...

Best prize - a free hair cut! I was in dire need of one.

Amelia said...

I love Give Away Day! It's my favoritest day EVER!

When my son was a baby, we went to the Mall of America in Minneapolis for the Halloween costume contest. He won the costume contest out of over 10,000 costumes. Of course, he was the "official" winner, but I made the costume. It was great! He was a skunk made with faux fur. So cute! He won a $100 gift certificate and tickets to a broadway musical that was coming through town. Fun!

Kindershop said...

I would love to win this pouch. The "greatest" price I ever won was a simple ball at a carnival when I was 5 or 6. I rolled the dice and had three sixes.

Hana said...

I've never won a prize actually... that's why I'm trying for all of these giveaways! I really love the fabric on the outside.

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

That pouch is adorable. The stripes won me over! Your question is tough. But I once won a little tool kit at the lumberyard. The same month, my dad won a pink breast cancer quilt and wanted to swap for my manly prize!
Thanks for the chance.
Katie

Loralynn said...

I won a tv back in the 80's! I used it for years!

rosemeg@gmail.com said...

I haven't won many things. The only thing that comes to mind is a porcelain baby doll at a raffle in my elementary school cafeteria. I don't remember what the event was, but I was pretty excited at the time.

Amy said...

Love this! I just won a microwave and indoor grill at a wedding shower!

Sara said...

What an adorable pouch!

If I don't count dh as my greatest prize, it would have to be the sewing machine I won from Regis and Kathy Lee almost 20 years ago. They give away much bigger gifts these days, but I'm still using that machine!

Marie Greene said...

I love it! The best gift I ever won was two folk paintings from Tascha Parkinson on her blog Time with Tascha. One was an original watercolor and the other was a print. I was stoked!

Anya said...

My greatest prize was a crafty blogger's giveaway that included a donation to a food bank.
Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!

esther lee said...

There was a Valentine's Day in college where the Professor asked who was having the worst Valentine's. I raised my hand to explain we had just found out my dog had cancer.

Needless to say, I won the 'prize' that day.

I love the fabric used in this pouch!

no4daughter said...

Sadly, I haven't won very many prizes. I won a raffle at a fishing contest once and got a chicken dinner from a local diner though!

Jess said...

Well the last time I remember winning a contest would be in 8th grade we placed first in the egg drop contest for Science Olympiad. Yeah I was a geek.

Liz said...

I won a Fisher Price House Party with lots of awesome fisher price toys for my son.

Katy said...

The greatest prize I ever won was a research paper contest in college--I won $100, which went towards buying books for the next semester. :)

two hippos said...

Great pouch! As for best prize, I won the DC Metro poster contest when I was a kind. My parents still have the framed poster I made. I don't know that I got anything for it though, other than the frame.

Jennifer said...

The greatest prize I ever won and received was a bracelet and gift certificate to Twisted Silver.

My Hubs once won a new grill from Home Depot... that's my best vicarious win :) I don't think I have any of my own, but I'd love today to be my lucky day!

Sarah Lemmon said...

Very cute. I like the coordinating fabric. I won an ipod at a company party once... that is probably the best thing I've ever won!

Deb said...

Easy -- a round trip plane ticket -- I went to see my big brother who I hadn't seen in a very long time, and my mom bought my son's ticket so that he could come along = } Thanks so much for this wonderful giveaway!!!

cathy said...

As a kid, I came in 2nd in my town's 4th of July freckle counting contest. I won a sweatshirt. It was a lot of fun.

Jingle said...

I won a contest for some scrapbooking stuff I created and I got $500 for it. The money itself wasn't what was great, but that money allowed me to create my first "real" designed scrapbook room! I was thrilled!!!

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

I recently won fq's from free spirit - fabrics that aren't out yet! Only problem - I can't cut into them - too beautiful :)
Love you bag - who doesn't need another bag!?

I'm a medical student who loves knitting. said...

When I was younger, my family and I went to the Bozo show. You know, with the crazy clown and lots of screaming kids. Well when it came to the end of the show where they draw a name of someone to go down and throw the balls in the bucket...they drew my name. I was so nervous my hands were all shaky, so I only managed to get 2 buckets. Even so, I won some crazy board game and a stuffed animal. Yay or memories!

Krista said...

Hmm... I won a sock monkey from homemadebyjill this fall - that was pretty exciting!

turvid said...

Very nice give-away.

I don't think I've ever won anything...

Liz said...

Not a winner yet...
Maybe today?

Gail :) said...

Okay when I was like 12 years old and VCR's were new I entered a contest at a local grocery store and won! That is the coolest thing I have ever won. And I took that VCR to college with me too. It finally died a few years ago.

Tanya said...

I won three Bum Genius diapers once. I was sooo, sooo happy. My daughter has used them and used them. :)

Texastiger said...

Lovely giveaway. The fabric looks really nice especially the interior stripes. I haven't won much but once I got a gift card to a local grocery store - that was nice cuz it was very practical.
Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

growareader said...

I never win and I'm sure I'm not going to win this one....but I've got to keep trying! Happy Holidays! (You thought I was going to say bah humbug didn't you!)

WillowLuna said...

Greatest prize? I've won something twice, ever, I think. One was fabric from Sew, Mama,Sew, and the other was a book from SouleMama. Both made me very excited!

Michaela said...

Please, enter me in your giveaway..

nerissa lindenfelser said...

I don't think I've ever won a thing in my life. I was one jellybean in a jar away from the right answer one time!

r e b e c k a said...

Maybe not my favourite win but my favourite competition... when I was around seven I won a starters stamp collecting kit by guessing the exact number of stamps in a jar... I still remember they were 643! :)
Who's not a sucker for stripes anyway!

Twylabug said...

The greatest thing I have ever won would have to be a bike when I was about 10 yrs old.

Liz said...

I don't think I've won much! I have a vague memory of winning some big Brownie (as in girl scouts not cakes!) contest, but have no idea what I'd done to win - think I won a toy elephant that was cherished for a while.

Love the pouch!

amy said...

I once won a fantasy football contest by choosing my teams based on mascots and team colors! :-) The guys were upset.

I was ten years old and I won a 25 pound turkey from the local meat market.

LauraJ said...

Lisa said...

I'm a sucker for a good stripe, too, and I love the idea of adding fleece to it.

The best - and only, I think - prize I've ever won was a concert ticket when I was in college. I was the 10th caller or something of that nature.

Tina said...

I won a $50 gift certificate to a dance studio for my daughter. That was pretty cool! Love the pouch!

Sally said...

the greatest prize I've ever won was $200 on an instant scratcher...mainly b/c it was one of those holiday ones and it was the biggest prize possible!

I sold the winning turkey raffle ticket when I was a kid and the principal took me out to lunch :)

Victoria said...

That fabric is gorgeous! When I was 12 and was glued to FM radio (that gives you a clue to my age) I won a gold pen by saying a jingle really fast on-air. I've won much nicer things but as my first win, it was sweet ;-)

What a lovely pouch! We won tickets to a Twins game!

EmmyLizzy said...

KristenL said...

Gosh, I haven't won a lot of prizes, but I did win a free yard of fabric once and was ecstatic.

I love your pouch BTW, perfect fabric combo.

buebau said...

I love your pouch.
You know, I got some prizes in internet and it is dificult to name only one...
I wan the entire Sis Boom basics line from Jenifer Pagannelli (1 yard of each one).
But I think the one I liked the most was a black package that was sent to me and some of my flickr contacts filled with fabric and beads, without any identification. Every package was personalised having in consideration the profile of who wasgoing to receive it. And at first no one knew who send those amazing packages. And the funiest part was that those who discovered never told the other. This happened in May '08 and I only found out who send that in October.
That was so fun and generous from a dear and sweet friend... I'll never forget.
Take a look at my blog and enter my give away :)

ClaraE said...

the greatest prize I ever won is the gift of my boyfriend and his family. I just got back from a wonderful weekend of thanksgiving with him and his sister's family.

Erica @ life's not a paragraph said...

I've never won a blog contest - in fact I don't think I've won anything as an adult.

As weird as this is going to be, I won a spot in in mime class in the 4th grade. It was 1 1/2 hours that got me out of school work and I loved it.

Jennifer said...

I won a glass pig piggybank as a child and that was one of the happiest days of my young life. I haven't thought about that for a long time, thanks. westphal.jennifer@gmail.com

Anne said...

Love the pouch! The ONLY thing I've ever won was a giant easter basket with a huge stuffed easter bunny and some candy in it. Although, to this day, my little sister claims it should have been hers since she lent me the dollar to buy the ticket!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Emilyplays said...

Love your pouch and your question! The greatest (and only!) prize I have ever won was fabric from SewMamaSew!! It was a glorious day!

John said...

Wow, great pouch! I know some people who would love this as a Christmas gift ... from me, of course! :)

As for prizes, I can't recall any that I've actually ever won ... certainly not here in the blogiverse, no matter how many giveaways I enter! Hopefully my chances are better today, with so many great giveaways going on.

ChrisC said...

What a great pouch! I love the fabric combos (and I, too, am a sucker for good stripes).

The best thing I ever won was a pair of rollerblades at my high school prom after-party. Actually, that might be the ONLY thing I've ever won, and that was, oh, almost 15 years ago. I think I'm due winning something again :-)

Stephanie said...

oooh - so pretty! This probably isn't what you meant by a prize but I think my greatest prize is my daughter. We have only boys in her generation of my entire extended family. Even my cousins all have boys. There's 15 of them. So when I had a daughter it was like winning the lottery! She's truly a treasure too so I couldn't hope to win anything better than her. :)

The Giveaway Diva said...

i would lvoe to win this!!! love the combo!!

mel*~reachforthestars~* said...

Hmm. It was a great prize! I won it really by luck even though there were 400 over entries! Im hoping i'll get lucky again this time!

Cheers,

Karissa said...

Cute! My best prize was an Amy Butler giveaway from Craftsanity, which I'm actually blogging about tomorrow!

sfer said...

I once entered a literary contest that I didn't win... because the jury had lost my short story!! It was back in high school, and we ended up finding out that the envelope with my story had been misplaced. The literature department then got me a book as a present, since once they read the story, they all agreed that I would have won... It was the best!!

Thanks for this giveaway... :-)

Wendy said...

Gorgeous!
The most memorable thing I've ever won was a gift certificate to a local restaurant. I was 12 years old at the time, and we were dirt poor and didn't eat out much. So, I was able to take my family out for dinner, and it was really really fun!

adrienne said...

Oh, I love the fabrics you used!
I think the best prize I ever won was a pair of handknit socks. Totally cozy and awesome.

I feel like I never win prizes! Hope I win this one :).

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Up until a few days ago I'd tell you I'd never won anything. But I recently won a pack of fall scrapbook paper and also a vet dress up kit for my kids. All in the span of two weeks. I'd hope to say my luck is changing! :)

I'd love to win a cute little something like this. That pouch is dear and I love the idea of lining it with fleece to cushion the contents a bit!

michelou said...

I won a $500 travel voucher at a Wedding fair. Pretty snazzy gift! The hubby and I took a quick trip prior to the wedding to relax from the stresses of wedding planning - call it a "pre-honeymoon"

ingrid said...

This is beautiful!

The best prize I ever won, was actually won by my son. He was about 7 and always seemed to run second or third in everyhing, that was until the school held a spaghetti eating contest. My champion kid came first for the first time in his life and the smile on his messy face was priceless. I have a photo of him proudly holding up his cerificate and his prize of a giant tin of spaghetti.

Tim said...

I agree, those stripes are great.

I won 10 Kaffe Fassett fat quarters from SMS. They are wonderful and I still haven't cut them up!

A big hug from Italy and thanks again so much for this chance!

Rather Be Whistling said...

I love the pouch! I won a bicycle at the fair when I was young. The fire department dropped numbered ping pong balls. I happened to pick up the winning number. I couldn't ride the bike because it was too big for me, but one of the neighborhood boys needed a bike so I got to give it to him.

The greatest prize I've ever won? A $20 gift card to my favorite coffee shop during a "Home Movie Day" random drawing. Best part was, I didn't expect to win.

But maybe, I will have to change my answer to this question if you pick me!

oona said...

Ooh, I adore the colors/fabric of the little pouch! Craftiness sweetness in full force. I won a $50 gift certificate to a book store's grand opening. I felt very luxurious and bought everyone I knew one book to share!

Once I got tickets to see Kenny Loggins when I gave blood, but I'm not sure that counts since I didn't win and it kind of sucked.

Thanks for the chance to enter!

Ali said...

I am a sucker for anything with brown colors in it :)
I can't remember ever having won anything, except for $5 on a scratch off lotto ticket someone gave me about five years ago. My husband won an iPod at his work last year, that's pretty good.

I love the pouch!

Hmmm, I don't know if I've ever won anything... Certainly not off of a blog or anything.

Wait - once I did win a gift certificate to a restaurant for getting 2nd prize in a halloween costume contest.

Second row tickets to see the Monkees in concert back in the 80's when they were on a reunion tour.

love the dark colors. I won a giant stuffed duck once, before I had kids. We kept it for years and the kids liked jumping on him, but I finally got rid of it recently. (drooled on one time to many , for my taste)

Tiffany said...

Cute! I love that!

The greatest prize I ever won was tickets to see Snow Patrol. The show ended up being on my birthday. It was a great night out with my husband. :)

I won the world's greatest grandma!

One night she took my beloved doll and made her an entire wardrobe. All in one night and sewn by hand, too. She makes the most beautiful quilts. She dropped out of high school in the 11th grade to marry my grandpa, and has been one tough lady. She's who I want to be.

I won a book and a $25 amazon gift card in a drawing. Still a fantastic win for me...but something to help my yarn habit is also now welcome :)
Love the pouch...am thinking it would fit my knit & crochet odds and ends perfectly

This is so cute! So I don't think I've ever won a prize, but while in the nosebleed section at a Josh Groban concert, my sister and I were selected and got to sit front row center for the concert! It was pretty awesome!

The greatest prize I have ever won was an autographed baseball!

Great prize. My best prize was a $300 prize from Scrapbooks Etc. IT was a bunch of mags, $75 to amazon & a ton of adhesives.

Very cute!
the greatest prize I ever won??

Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

Very nice! I once won a coloring contest.

erika~ the inspired mama said...

it is so cute! i love it!

i won a really cool baby carrier a while back... a babyhawk! that was pretty exciting!

Digital Misfit said...

Gorgeous pouch! love the fabrics you used.

The best prize I ever won was an all inclusive trip for 4 to Jamaica from Sunny Delight (yup, SunnyD, that icky orange beverage).
I was so excited I screamed.
I bought a new tropical wardrobe for the trip and had a pedicure to show off my new sandals.
Then multiple mini disasters struck and none of us were able to go. I had to forfeit the trip (non-refundable, non-transferable).
I still have the now-useless airline tickets in my drawer as a reminder of how cruel fate can be.

Love the pouch. I used to win every door prize imaginable but I've had a bit of a dry spell in the past few years. The best prize I ever won was at a paddling race and I won a Thule roof box. Except for the fact that I had carpooled from Vancouver to Seattle and didn't have any way of getting it home! Ended up bribing someone to bring it home who had to try and convince the border guard that it really was a prize.

Megan said...

Well I just won a book by Leslie Ludy, I am pretty excited about that. But I cannot think of anything major. Thanks for the chance to win now, though!
