Giveaway: A Goody Bag of My Favorite Supplies!

 

{This Giveaway Is Now Closed}

Today is Sew, Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day! I participated in the Spring, and had so much fun that I had to participate again.

This time, I had planned to make something to display in your craft/sewing room and I got about halfway through to project. But the holidays are seriously catching up with me, and I’ve decided to postpone that prize for another day (maybe to celebrate when I finally finish sprucing up my craft corner!). So this morning, I went through my craft corner and grabbed some of my favorite supplies, to create a Goody Bag for you!

GiveawayDayDec2011

All of them are sewing or fabric-related. Some of them I stocked up on when they went on sale or I had a good coupon, or I received as part of a product review (but received multiples or similar items) that I also loved to use. Some have made several appearances in my tutorials. Everything is new and unopened.

Here’s what’s included in the Goody Bag!

A pack of Steam-A-Seam2, A pair of Fiskars scissors, Two coordinating fat quarters (I used one of these fabrics here), A pack of 3/4” covered button refills…

GiveawayDayDec2011_1 

…Three colors of Tulip fabric glitter paint (review post of this product line coming this week!), Xyron sticker maker (note: you can’t sew over this (I’ve tried…it made my needle really sticky) but you can make your own Washi-type tape!)…

GiveawayDayDec2011_2 

…Martha Stewart Crafts holiday stencil, and three packs of rick rack.

GiveawayDayDec2011_3

I find all of these things super useful for everyday sewing and crafting, and hope you will to.

Here’s how to enter the giveaway:

Leave one comment per entry (total possible=5)

1) Mandatory Entry: Just leave a comment. Suggestion: Leave a link to a holiday craft you’ve made that someone else made. Etsy stores are welcome! I will pick a few to feature over the next week or two.

2) Optional Entry: Like The Silly Pearl on Facebook or follow me on Twitter @steph2pigs (or tell me if you already are)

3) Optional Entry: Add The Silly Pearl on Google+ (first entry) To add, click the +1 on the sidebar.

4) Optional Entry: Add The Silly Pearl on Google+ (second entry)

{So you get two optional entries for adding The Silly Pearl on Google+. One comment per entry.} Or tell me if you already are.

5) Optional Entry: Follow me on GFC or subscribe in a reader or by email (or tell me if you already are).

Please leave your email in one of your comments if it’s not available on your blog or profile, otherwise I can’t reach you if you win.

Giveaway ends December 16 at 5pm PST. Giveaway is open internationally. Winner will be chosen via random.org. Winner will be notified by email, who will have 48 hours to respond to claim the prize, otherwise another winner will be chosen.

GiveawayDay

There’s a separate page for each type of giveaway. My giveaway will be under Sewing Supplies. The other categories are Handmade for the Home, Handmade Baby + Kid Items, Handmade Bags, Handmade Accessories, and Other Craft Supplies (non-sewing). Good luck!

Thank you Sew, Mama, Sew! for hosting the event.
