Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! (CLOSED)

***COMMENTS CLOSED. Winner posted here: http://tiedyedivadesigns.blogspot.com/2011/12/giveaway-day-winner.html ******

So appropriately smack in the middle of this season of giving, it's Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! I loooove Giveaway Day!

I'm Jen, and I'm giving away a 3-pack of my PDF sewing patterns. The winner can choose from any of my 40+ downloadable patterns for baby, children, adults and home at www.tiedyedivapatterns.com.


You might choose my infinity scarf pattern because at about 30 minutes a project, you'll still have tons of time to sew them up for the deserving people on your holiday gift list. And even a few of the undeserving ones.


You might choose my Ear Flap Hat Pattern for kids, or the grownup version for yourself. You can even make a less grown-up grownup version with dinosaur spikes or kitty ears if you're that kind of grownup. Which I hope you are.


You might choose a pattern for baby like the Ruffled Baby Romper/Sunsuit. Especially if you're having summer right now instead of freezing like me.

Or any of the remaining 40 patterns.

Here's how to enter. Just leave a comment! Let me know who you sew for (kids? Grandkids? Yourself? for sale?) or if you are a sewer-to-be. There are, of course, no non-sewers, only those whose inner sewer is begging to be let out. Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you!

If you purchase from me during the run of this contest (between time stamp of this post and the time comments are closed on December 16 at 5 p.m. PST) and you end up being the lucky winner, I will refund your purchase price for up to 3 patterns.

Winner will be drawn randomly via Random.org and announced by December 18 right here on the Tie Dye Diva blog. One entry will be counted per person. I will email the PDF patterns to the winner anywhere in the world.

Post your comment below and check back on on December 18! If you can't stand the wait and want to chat about my patterns in the meantime, come join over 3000 Tie Dye Diva Patterns fans on Facebook at www.facebook.com/tiedyedivapatterns! I hope to see you there.
