Giveaway and Tiered skirt (I DID IT!!!)

Ok this post is going to be fun!!

First I DID IT! I finally made my first (picture worthy) from scratch skirt.  Maybe to some of you sewers it's 'no big deal', but to me, a very sewing machine challenged (even though I love mine, we just seem to argue now and again), non reader of directions girl, this is big news. :)

So today, because I believe if I can learn to sew than ANYONE can, I am hosting:
a giveaway to anyone living in Turkey!!( I have a REALLY fun giveaway planned for ALL my followers in July.)

I am giving away 100% cotton fabric to the winner ~ Yep check below for the pics.
This is my way of encourging all of you out there in need of an outlet to... go ahead and give sewing a try... sew some bookmarks or an upcycle or why not try a pillow.  :) Learn along with me and do a jig when you actually complete something.

Here is the skirt I made for my daughter's 5 year old birthday. I upcycled a shirt to match. :) Which I still need to wash so that the cut edges frey but you get the idea.

I really want to show you all how I did it and a great tutorial that was full of pics that really helped me. I'll share that in my next post.


Ok, on to the Giveaway...





 the GIVEAWAY~


This little package of care has :

(For all of you dear followers and subscribers that don't live in Turkey I haven't forgotten you :) I have a REALLY fun giveaway planned for all my followers in July.  However for my first giveaway I wanted to invest/give to those in Turkey because I know what we can and can not get here, like how hard good fabric is to come by. I recently was so delighted by those who gave me a pile of fabric (see this post) no strings attached and I wanted to invest in the same way.  Thanks for understanding.)

I would love to win! I've been following your blog (via Google Reader) from Ankara and enjoy it very much! I tried some of the silly snacks with my almost-four-year old.

A giveaway is such a fun idea - thanks for thinking of that! I have been checking out your blog regularly and am so impressed with your creativity and thriftiness- definitely inspires me! I would love to win the giveaway (although my old sewing machine is currently all alone back in Canada, so I would have to figure out something there! On that note, did you buy your sewing machine new here in T?)

I'm also enjoying keeping up with you via blog and have gotten into sewing more recently. Right now my project is making nursing covers for myself and a couple friends here. :-) I would love to join the giveaway!

Well, I probably can't win the giveaway because of a conflict of interests. (I am married to the beautiful creator of this wonderful blog) but I wanted to post a comment anyway! :)

Becky, we met at the education conference and my kids still talk about your sweet daughters. We made a trip to your city last month and we hope to get out that way again. It was such a beautiful drive and your city is quite lovely. I'm not sure I'm the most crafty to win your giveaway, but I have been so encouraged and challenged by your blog to find ways to create with my uber creative kiddo!
