Happy Giveaway Day!
For Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day, I put together this little Quilting Kit:
*Scraps from about 50 different fabrics
*2 spools of 100% cotton hand quilting thread
*A measuring tape
*10 quilting needles (Size 10 betweens) in a wooden holder
*An off-hand thimble
*A 12 inch by 14 inch project bag I made with a thrifted sheet, using Betz White's Tutorial
Here's a better view of some of the fabrics. These were culled from my frightfully large scrap box. The scraps range in size from 4 inches by 4 inches up to 10 inches by 26 inches. Most are 100% cotton and most have not been pre-washed.
So how can you win this cute bag of goodies? By leaving a comment answering the following question:
(It can be a costume you wore or one you made for someone else)
Edited to add: I apologize to international folks for forgetting Halloween is not a world-wide holiday. Just leave a comment about any costume you've enjoyed!)
And what does this have to do with quilting? Sorting my scraps reminded me of a costume my very crafty mom made for me: The Patchwork Girl of Oz. Much to my dismay, none of my classmates knew of this obscure character and assumed I was Raggedy Ann. My mom, being the cool mom that she is, probably foresaw this possibility but still indulged me and put in a lot of effort to make me a costume no one would recognize. Thanks, Mommy!
On June 1, I will select a winner at random from all the comments telling me about a costume left between May 27 and May31. I will also pay for shipping charges (either domestic or international).
Thanks very much to Sew, Mama, Sew for organizing this and be sure to go check out all the other participants here and here!
