Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day **CLOSED**


Oh yeah baby it's Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! I love Giveaway Day!

I'm Jen, and I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate for sewing patterns from my shop! The winner can choose from any of my nearly 70 downloadable patterns for baby, children, adults and home at www.tiedyedivapatterns.com.


Maybe you'd like to try out my newest pattern, Perfect Party Dress for Girls. No party needed.
With $25 to spend, you could pick up the matching 18" doll dress pattern, in case dolly's the party type too.


No kids? No problem. I bet you have a head ... how about the Reversible Sun Hat Pattern for Women?

Or maybe you have a man to sew for. Big or little, we've got patterns for them too.




Or any of the remaining 60+ patterns.

Here's how to enter. Just leave a comment! Let me know what you are sewing this time of year 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. She probably has scissors in there so don't keep her in too long.

If you purchase from me during the run of this contest (between time stamp of this post and the time comments are closed on May 10 at 5 p.m. PST) and you end up being the lucky winner, I will refund your purchase price for up to $25.

Winner will be drawn randomly via Random.org and announced by May 12 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, leave a way for me to contact you, and check back on on May 12! If you can't stand the wait and want to chat about my patterns in the meantime, come join nearly 8000 Tie Dye Diva Patterns fans on Facebook at www.facebook.com/tiedyedivapatterns or in our newly-opened group of almost 800 members at https://www.facebook.com/groups/tiedyedivapatterns/ I hope to see you in both!
