Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This giveaway is now closed!  Thanks to all who entered! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horray for Giveaway Day!  I love giveaways, don’t you?  I’ve put together a couple little packages to give away. 

The first package is a ‘boy’ package:

  • one lil cutie pouch, one reusable sandwich bag, and one robot pencil pouch

Second, is a ‘girl’ package:

  • one cupcake snap wallet, one reusable sandwich bag, 2 covered barrettes, and three ponytail holders

I figured it would be nice for the winner of my giveaway to pick which package they’d like to win.  Give it away to that special boy or girl in your life (or smuggle them away for yourself if you wish).

Then I thought I should add in a little extra something, so a little stash booster is in order:

  • 3 different prints: 2 half yard cuts plus about a fat quarter of material, yipee!

Want to enter??
Leave a comment. Tell me if you’d like the ‘girl’ package or ‘boy’ package.  And just for fun, tell me your favorite sewing tutorial, or one you’d just love to see written.

I’ll close the giveaway on Sunday, December 6th at 11:59 pm (CDT).  The winner will be selected randomly via

PS make sure you leave me your email address if you don’t have it listed in your profile. This giveaway is open to international entries and the package will be shipped by December 12th.

Good luck, thanks for reading my blog, and thanks to Sew, Mama, Sew! for organizing another great Giveaway Day!

    Wow, so generous of you to share so much with us! I would love to see a few shirt tutorials for little girls or boys, somehow I can’t find a decent one in the shops (pattern that is) and would like just a bit of help to get me going!

Thanks for all you share (and either pack will be lovely – thanks, again.) and have a beautiful week πŸ™‚

    no favorite tutorials- i just like them all!

  7. Amy says:

    Here I am as promised! I bet you’d think that I would request “girl” but I am thinking “boy.” Those look like big boy items and I think he’d love them! Plus, I don’t tend to sew as much for him as for his sisters!

  8. Stitchyniche says:

    I really like your cutie pouch tute – the zipper insertion method is forehead-slapping genius! why did I ever try any other way?? I have 3 grandsons – two new within the 3 months, but I also have one new granddaughter . . . which prize package? How about either one!!

  9. LOVE those robots! favorite tutorial = zig zag quilt from purl bee. πŸ™‚

  20. Love the boy package. That robot pencil case is awesome! Maybe I need to go searching for a pencil case tutorial in case I don’t win. I love the reversible tote bag tute on Skip to my Lou. Makes up very quickly for some special gifts whenever you need one.

    I would like the girl package… I always love bag tutorials…

  37. K. Anne says:

    We would love the girl package. I like tutorials that are for gift items, especially during this time of the year. Ones that don’t use a lot of yardage but are useful items as well. My most recent favorite was one for a coin wallet using a hex-type/snap frame.

  38. I love that boy package. I think the quilt-along over on Oh, Fransson! was among the best tutorials I’ve ever seen. Very clear and so many pictures!


  39. redzshadow says:

    I like the girl package. I love the reusable sandwich bag! I kinda want you to make the tutorial for that storytime cushion. It is adorable!

  73. Natural Mom says:

    I love the boy version. Awesome job! My favorite tutorials come from madebyrae particularly the ruffle top one. She makes shirt making a lot easier. I also have to mention OhFransson’s quilt along. I am not sure it was a tutorial but she did such a great job explaining each step that I am now able to call myself a quilter.

  74. squareby says:

    Aw, the boy package is adorable. I think the girl one might be too girly for the girls I have in mind. As for tutorials, for a beginner like me, I learn something new from each one. The ones for simple bags like totes are especially great.

    Two little boys in my house…so I’d love to have the boy package!

  82. Tara says:

    Can I just say That I am completely overwhelmed by the generosity out there? There are some seriously awesome giveaways going on! Yours included, of course!

  143. Lisa says:

    I love those robots. I would love to say I’d give it to my boys, but I’d so keep it. My favorite tutorials are the ones for techniques, not items. Like how to put in a zipper or how to make binding. I’m all self-taught and they help so much.

  144. I’d love to give the girl package to my 8 year old sis! I love any skirt tute!

  145. Suzanne says:

    What a generous giveaway! I pick the boy package because my son always seems to be left out…

    What a great duo! I can’t decide; I love the boy fabrics and the girl hair accessories.

    I would love to have the little boy package, but either would be great! I would love to have a great toddler t-shirt tutorial. I have made a few shirts for my son but it is a long process and the fit is not as precise as i would hope for.
    Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  165. Catherine says:

    Love the little packages you’ve made up. A great idea for a giveaway. It’s hard to pick a favourite tutorial because there’s so many out there! I have to say Heather Bailey’s square pincushion tutorial was pretty good though. I ended up making 5 they were so cute.

    I loooove the little boy package– that robot fabric is wonderful! I think my little guy would really love the snack sac– he uses his sister’s pink princess snack sac right now…

  176. Sonja says:

    I have two girls and a boy πŸ˜‰ But the boy rarely gets anything handmade these days. So BOY! I would like the fabric more than anything as the orange floral made me swoon. It looks like you have already used one of my favorite tutorials. The Black Apple Doll. I have enjoyed making those dolls and they make lovely whips from fabric scraps. I fill the little arms and legs with rice so they have weight. Try it!

  177. paula_lemos says:

    I love the boy package! I’m always looking for tutorials and the one I will try this weekend will be the black apple doll. I also love Molly Chicken tutorials and have made a few, so fun!

    Not sure if I could narrow done a tutorial…i am so glad there are so many great ones! I love the mini kleenex keeper- that was the first one i tried.

    Both packages are beautiful! I would just be happy with either!

  181. leslie says:

    I would like either one, I have someone special either of them could go too. I don’t sew much so I can’t really help you there. But, I would like to know how to make those fabric flowers since I scrap all the time.

  182. Diane says:

    Bags are adorable! I like the girl, just because there are no boys in my house. I love the tutorial that I am currently working on, whatever that may be, because I love that others are willing to share thier instruction and experience.

  183. Liz says:

    The boy package is awesome! My favorite tutorial is clutterpunk’s thread sketching demonstration. So clever!

  188. finger thumb says:

    So lovely, what great give away prizes! I’d like to win the boy version. Plus the fabric of course πŸ˜‰ And my fave sewing tutes are on the Hello my Name is Heather blog. That’s where I learned to make yo-yos. And who doesn’t love yo-yos?

  189. I love both, but I think my daughter would like the girly one the best! My fav. tute is from sewliberated- the montessori child’s apron- super cute, easy, and so nice for a little one to be able to take on and off!

  190. I’d like the girl package. I have found so many great tutorials to help someone new to sewing. I really like the tutorials that repurpose something from around the house.

  191. mommymae says:

    Hope you’ll stop by and have a look around and enter our giveaways.

    Have a blessed day.


  200. Casey says:

    I’d have to pick the girly package since I have a 2.5 year old daughter who would love it! I love any kind of tutorial that is easy as I’m still learning things! I would like to see some clothes that use Cotton material, shirts and such (w/o elastic) with button closures. πŸ™‚

  201. Sara says:

    I think I’d like the “boy” package for my little girl! It’s that cute! And my favorite tutorial so far is the cathedral windows quilt tutorial here:

    that s one gorgeous little set. I love the boy one. thanks for putting together such a nice giveaway.

  207. sb says:

    I love the boy package – the robot fabric is too cute! My favorite tutorials are basic kids’ clothes and also bags/purses. I liked the J. Caroline Creative tote bag tutorial.

  208. I love the girl package for my daughter! My favorite tutorials are the ones where people take items such as a sweatshirt and turn it into a super cute girls dress! They are so creative!! Thanks for the giveaway! ~Stacy

  209. Farscapegirl says:

    I love both sets but would would choose the girl package πŸ™‚ I am not on my home computer so can’t post a link to any of my favorite online tutorials, but I love Amy butler’s weekender bag tutorial.

  210. Marjorie says:

    I would like the boy package, since my girl is not really very “girly”. I would love to see tutorials on purse making.

  211. Ah! Robots! I love the boy package. Robots!!!

    My favourite sewing tutes have been those quilting ones by Oh!Fransson.

  212. RyanSarahN says:

    Thanks for this cute giveaway! I would love the boy package. I have read/bookmarked several shirring tutorials and I really want to try it after the holidays.

  213. I would LOVE the girl package and BEAUTIFUL stash fabric!

    I’ve been searching for a tutorial for a women’s knee length tiered skirt. I can find them in girls, but not adults, and I’m fairly new to sewing, so I’m scared to undertake altering a tutorial on my own.

  214. Holly says:

    what a generous giveaway! i have a girl and a boy, so either would be great! i’m enjoying all the quilting tutorials out there, as that’s what i do the most

  215. yawkar618 says:

    i’d love the girl package (if i win)
    happy holidays

  216. bellsjo says:

    What wonderful giveaways! Thank you so much for the chance to win! For me it would have to be the boy one for my son. My favourite tutorial is over at Oh Fransson! and is the Mod Sampler Quiltalong. I made my first quilt ever using it!

  217. Annita says:

    I have to pick the boy package! I love the easy bedskirt tutorial. annita_pete(at)yahoo(dot)com

  218. I would choose the girl package.

    My favorite sewing tutorials are for little girls clothes since I have 2 little girls!

  219. Kari says:

    What an amazing set of packages you’ve offered! We’d like a shot at the girl package, please.

    As for tutes, hrmmm… I think one I’ve gotten a lot of use out of was the one that showed how to make toddler pants from an adult t-shirt.

    (oh, and hello from another Dairylander, eh!)

  220. I’d love the boy package! And I don’t have a favorite tutorial as I am new to sewing and haven’t made much yet.

  221. Sara says:

    I would like boy please! Also, I would love help on how to cut fabric. cutting patterned fabric for clothing is a nightmare for me.

  222. Valerie says:

    Super cute! Def going with the girl package.
    SewMamaSew’s tutorial on how to make bias tape out of scraps. I use this all the time, as its a really cheap way to get bias tape to coordinate with anything πŸ™‚

  223. leigh7911 says:

    What a great giveaway! I like the boy package. I have a little girl, but she doesn’t yet have enough hair for the bows, and really. That pouch has robots on it. Who wouldn’t love that?! As for tutorials, the only one I’ve done so far is Pink Penguin’s little fabric basket. They’re really cute!

  224. Cottage Mama says:

    I am totally loving the girly package. I have two daughters: 21 months and 5 months and this would be SO perfect for them. I love the prints – so cute!! My favorite tutorial would have to be the video tutorial on “Angry Chicken” about sewing bias tape. I just think it is such a great instructional tutorial and it is TOO funny!!!

  225. MommytoAva says:

    This is such a generous giveaway…thank you! I would love to give the “girl package” to a special little girlie girl who loves cupcakes and anything pink. Also, I would love to see a tutorial on msking those felt barrettes…they’re adorable!

  226. Kelly says:

    My daughter would love the girl package! I really like pouch tutorials! You can never have enough!


  227. S says:

    thanks for hosting this giveaway, oh how I’d love to win the BOY package and the lovely orange fabric!! My fav tutorial is the one for a reversible patchwork pouch from Ayumills. Thats the one that convinced me into plunging into the world of handmade/selfmade.

  228. Brooke says:

    Girl package… great giveaway. So far my favorite tutorial has been on making quick skirts

    love your blog!

  229. Shirley says:

    I’d like the girl package. One of the tutorials I like is but I haven’t had a chance to make one yet.

  230. rheawhite says:

    I love the boys one and have just the right kid in mind.

  231. katt says:

    I would love either set, as I have two girls who are into being girlie and robots (they’re quite unique, my two) — so either or both! I would like to see a tutorial on helping kids learn to sew to maybe a mommy and me type project that we can work on together.

  232. Its boy package all the way in our house as I have a 4 year old nearly ready for school and a 3 month boy. The tutorial I would like is a magic place where someone posts a whole encyclopedia of things to make for boys. Everything is for the girls but boys are not so easy to find things for if you love sewing and somehow have to reduce your fabric stash before you allow yourself to buy anymore. So come on lets get making for the boys!!

  233. Wrongtree09 says:

    My daughter would love the girl package. My current favorite tutorial is about squaring up.

  234. Emma says:

    I would love the boy package (as I have a boy!) and I have a lot of sewing tutorials I love but my current fave is this I’m making a bunch of them for christmas presents πŸ™‚
    Thanks for such a fab give-away!
    fingers crossed

  235. Birgit says:

    The girl’s package would be wonderful to win — a girl can dream after all, huh? As for tutorials, I am just a beginner, so everything easy is perfect for me. πŸ™‚

    Greetings from Munich,

  236. Love the boy package–and I’m all about the DITTY BAG tutorials that are eveywhere right now. So handy.

  237. jess says:

    wow! great giveaway! hope i win!

  238. Heather says:

    I love them both – but I’d pick the boy package because I love the fabrics so much, and the zip pouch is awesome! Currently my favorite tutorial is the Charm Squares quilt up on Sew Mama Sew (from O Franson! I think). It is my first attempt at a quilt and I love how it is coming out! Not that I’ve done the actual quilting part yet, heh.

  239. KitKnitty says:

    I’d pick the boy set. And, my favorite online tutorial is for one I read a long time ago about how to unravel a thrifted sweater. It’s certainly made it a lot easier to afford wool!

  240. C-Joy says:

    My little girl would love this prize! My current fave tutorial is UK Lass in US’s fabric house -I made a barn for DD as a Christmas gift this year. Thanks for participating πŸ™‚

  241. Cal says:

    Even though I have a girl, I think the boy set is so so cute I would choose it. I have a bunch of tutorials bookmarked, but seem never to come around to do any of them, as I am the type that improvises as I go along, like today when I sewed a Christmas stocking for my daughter.

  242. I want the boy package! Thanks for giving! And I would love to learn how to sew a wide waistband on a skirt.

  243. Lynn Osborne says:

    I’d like the girl package. I like any tutorials for gift items. Always looking for ideas. Thanks for the chance to win!

  244. Carmen says:

    The boy package is absolutely too cute for words! I think that Pink Penguin offers tutorials which are consistently enjoyed by me, whether for her awesome pattern combinations or the cuteness of the final product.

    Thanks so much!


  245. TheGigglingE says:

    I’d love the boy package! And I’d really love to see a kimono pajama pattern tutorial for adults. πŸ˜‰

  246. Sara says:

    I’d pick the boy items πŸ™‚

    My favorite tutorial right now is for the Phoebe bag, got it off Sew Mama sew

  247. Punkinhead says:

    Oh, it’s definitely the boy package for me. Not only does my five-year-old love robots, but his lame mom didn’t buy him a pencil box for pre-K… you’d be saving my butt. πŸ™‚ great blog!!

  248. wilderlamb says:

    Love your girl prize. My favorite tutorial (and one that I have actually used, not just read and thought about) is from Dana at Made.


  249. Katie B. says:

    Wow. What a generous giveaway! I’d have to choose the boy prize for my son.

  250. Very Verdant says:

    My son would be so excited to see handmade items in these give aways that are actually boy items. He love that robot fabric. I would love to see a simple poet shirt tutorial. One that gathers at the neck and sleeves with elastic or even ribbon. I could probably figure it out myself but I have not tried yet. ;o)

  251. I like the boy package. Hmmm, tutorial I love? It would have to be the kimono top on Habitual. I have made it twice and it is all kinds of cute and sews up so quick. I love it! Anywho, thanks for the opportunity!

  252. goodkarma says:

    What fun things, so sweet of you to offer these as a giveaway! I love both sets but would have to choose the girl set for my little dear. Thanks for the offer!!

  253. The Dodsters says:

    My boy wouldn’t have to carry his sisters purses anymore!! Love it.

  254. we’re all girls around here! except my poor husband…

  255. The boy pack for sure, that car print is just too cute! I love Betz White’s tutorials using felted sweaters. Thanks!

  256. Erica says:

    Boy package! Love the robots.
    My favourite tute is for the “buttercup bag”

  257. britt says:

    i have to pick the girl one because my boys would just fight over the boy goodies.

    favorite tutorial: wristlet by JC Handmade ( i want to make a bunch of these for christmas)

  258. Fiesta says:

  261. Jiaying says:

    Hmm, hard to pick. Can I do mix and match? πŸ™‚ I have a 2 year old daughter who’d love the hair pieces and the wallet. But she doesn’t eat sandwiches. If only the girl package had the pencil case instead of the sandwich bag… But, what cute items you’re generously giving away!

    I like your stocking tutorial.


  262. fieryone says:

  264. Lil Bean says:

    What a fun giveaway! I’d love the boy package! I have two little dudes, 6 months and 2.5 years. My favourite tutorial is probably this one about making your own bias tape!

  265. jennie says:

    oh my. both of these are wonderful! maybe i would take the ‘girl’ one, though since i have a couple of nieces. πŸ™‚ i don’t really have a favorite tutorial but LOVE that there are so many at my fingertips online. πŸ™‚

  266. JJ says:

    Yay for the boy package! Boys always get left out…so I would love to see more tutorials for boys!

  267. Care says:

    Oooh, tough choice, but I think I’d have to pick the boy package. I love those tiny cars!!

  271. by Daisy says:

    tutorials are great when you need inspiration or see something someone else made and you really would like to make it youself. but because i’m so new at all this, i’m still learning a lot, and so my favourite tutorials are the ones who help me overcome difficult things like the binding or the pockets.

  272. ~April~ says:

    I would love love love the boy package! It’s perfect for my son!

    I would like to see a good, detailed (With close up pictures), easy tutorial for a mitered corner.

    I’d love to receive the boy package if i win.

    Love them both but I’d have to say girl.

    The tutorial I’ve used most recently is the one using the quilt patis plastic templates for making hexagons that was linked from sewmamasew. I bought them and got right to work!

  281. I have a girl and a boy, so I’d like either! Do like the hair accessories though. I like the taggy baby blanket tutorial.

  282. Terisa says:

    I would like the boy giveaway. My favorite tutorial is a cathedral window quilt tutorial. this quilt was the first quilt i ever made and it came out unbelievably well!!

  283. I think I’m leaning more toward the boy package since I have five boys. My daughters are older now, but one might still like the girl package.

    There are so many great tutorials out there. I do love the linen-bottomed basket at Pink Penguin.

  284. Bonnie says:

    The girly package would be great (the boy package is super cute too, but no boys here). I like the Rae spring top tutorial that was on SMS and the linen patchwork journal cover on Bloom & Blossom.

  285. Megan says:

    Wow, I love both. But I would choose the girl package! πŸ™‚

    And favorite tutorials. I really don’t think I can choose. But I love this one from SMS:

  286. I love a good quilting tutorial and the girl package would be nice.

  287. sy says:

    i love this ruffled skirt tutorial can’t wait to try it out.

    would like to win the boy package.

  288. Holly says:

    is it wrong that i want to win the boys’ package and keep it for myself? cause i do!

    thanks for the great give away!

  289. CMEH says:

    I have too many tutes to pick one but I think that the pencil case that you made is one that I am planning on trying as soon as I get my machine back and is really well written.

    I would prefer the boy package….

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  290. Kari says:

    Love your giveaway, Anna! I would want the boy grouping – so adorable. And my favorite tutorial of yours is the Christmas stocking. πŸ™‚

  291. Mary Anna says:

    I’d totally go with the boy package, since neither of my sons really dig pink or hair clips. My favorite tutorial so far is one for a drawstring backpack from Make it Love it. I made them for my boys before our family vacation this summer. It was so nice that they each had a small bag to carry their junk around in – big enough for a sippy and some Hot Wheels but not so big that it became heavy. And, it was nice to be able to wash them after they were used to collect shells on the beach.

  292. Elizabeth says:

    i’d like the boy package! my most favoritest sewing tutorial is the classic tote bag tutorial at sew mama sew. i use it all the time!

    psst…i’m from wisconsin too! πŸ™‚

  293. Kousebol says:

    I’s LOVE to see a tutorial on how to make a jumpsuit for a little boy (18 months).
    Thanks for sharing!

  294. Jessica says:

    The boys package please – the fabric you’ve used is adorable and the little boy that I have in mind will have to be extra nice to me if I did win as I would so love these for myself! My favourite sewing tutorial is pretty simple – a very cute pig softie from Wee Wonderfuls

  295. I love them both but i have three boys so i could equally divy that one up. I am learning to quilt and sew, so the practical tutorials are great: like how to bind a quilt or blind stitch.

  296. Helena says:

    What a fun giveaway, all of its cute. I can use either I have both boys and girls in my home.

  297. Maevy says:

    I would pick the boy package for my godson! I’d like to see more tutorials of cool and simple tops for women.

  298. Lisa says:

    I’d love the girl version for my DD! As for tutorials, I love the ones at U-Handbag, they’ve been really helpful in learning some of the finer points of bag making.

  299. Melody says:

    I’d love to have the boys package, since I have no girls. They are both so cute! The fabric is awesome too! Thanks for the great giveaway πŸ™‚

    I would love the girly one!! So cute! I would love to see any tutorials written up, especially little toys and things for my kids. Thanks for the chance to win!

  301. bethany says:

    I am not sure what blog it is on (I look a quit a few), but it was a summer scrappy belt…really cute and well written. i would like the girl package. Thanks!!

  302. Bec Clarke says:

    I love the little boy pack. Your giveaway is very generous.
    My fav tutorial is a little zippered purse one. I am not sure if it’s your’s I will have to have a look.
    I love making them, they have made me unafraid zippers now.

  303. Barbie says:

    Wow, what a fabulous give-away. I Love the boy package – it is perfect for my son. My favourite tutorial is Jacquie’s Wonky Log Cabin tutorial at Tallgrass Prairie Studio – it got me going with modern quilting!

  304. Leigh says:

    I’d love the girly package! I haven’t done tons of tutorials yet, but I’m looking forward to making the Phoebe bag from artsy-craftsy babe! And HI from a fellow Wisconsinite!

  305. lalepop says:

    I have two little sweet girls, so I’d have to go with the girl package. Although the boy one is adorable!

    Sewing tutes — I love quick projects. With two little ones, I don’t have time to do big ones. I never get them done! So, quick purses, bags, and accessories are great.

    I like tutes for anything that doesn’t take a lot of time. My two little ones keep me too busy to undertake a big, long project. I adore tutes for hour-or-less projects.

    And I commented, but it showed an error and deleted it. If my comment shows up twice — sorry!

    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  307. Joey says:

    boy package! I really love all of OhFransons! tutorials . . . the lunchbox, the quilts, the zippered pouches. Thanks for the giveaway

  308. Jingle says:

    I would love the boy package! The robots got me right away! LOL! Honestly, I don’t know of many sewing tutorials that I could share with you, but I may be back to see what everyone else posts! LOL!

  309. Jennifer says:

    What a great giveaway! I would love the girl package!

    My favorite tutorial is the men’s shirt into little girl’s dress pattern over at Made. I just love it! I would love to see more tutorials for making cute kids clothing out of recycled items.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  310. Girltwin64 says:

    Cool give away! I wouldn’t mind having the boy or girl! I love the zippy wallet tutorial too! Thanks so much! Ellen Hurd

  311. Mrs. Fix says:

    I love all the tutorials on SewMamaSew — especially the one for lining a bag. And I love your giveaway — I’d pick the girl items as I’m having a baby girl in March.

  312. Love the girly package. I’d love for someone to tell me how to imprint words over my pictures on my blog :-S Thanks for entering me in your Giveaway Day!

  313. i love the boy package!

    i love tutorials which are clearly illustrated with step by step pics!
    i love to see tutorials of cute little purses (zippered – bit intimidating) i have seen some, bit no zippered ones.

  314. carriegirl says:

    These are so cute! I would love the boy package! Thanks so much for this opportunity! As for tutorials, I love the ruffle scarf tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff because it is so simple and I have used it to make many scarves (which will be Christmas gifts)! Off to explore your blog now πŸ˜‰

  315. DieselMonkey says:

    i would love the boy package. such cute fabrics!
    my favorite tutorial….that’s a hard one. i have a few bookmarked but no time to sew!
    (email in profile)

  316. ILuvBNaMom says:

    While I think the girl package is just lovely and would want it for myself, I’d choose the boy package. It seems more things are girl oriented like cute handbags, pouches, dolls, blankies for the dolls, etc. My daughter gets more things and my son is often left out. So when I can, I try to make stuff for him. This set would be perfect.
    My favorite tutorial is the crayon roll. I use it so often for so many kid gifts.
    BTW – I just love your blog. Too bad I didn’t see the turkey placemat tutorial before last week.

  317. Jodie says:

    Boy! And I love purse/bag tutorials. Thanks for the chance to win!


  318. cafeeclectic says:

    girl please!

    Favorite tut right now is the alphabet magnet set from chez beeper bebe

  319. I love your blog! I have loved browsing through your creativity. I have boys so I guess I should choose the boy bags – so cute!

  320. kirsten says:

    I love the boy package, seems like my girl gets all the cute stuff!!

  321. love the boy package for my son! i am not advanced enough to follow sewing tutorials just yet, but i did just learn how to make martha stewart’s pom poms. (see giveaway on my blog). thanks!

  322. David says:

    A reusable sandwich bag? I couldn’t resist entering–my 2 yr old daughter would love the girl package.

    I am working on a simple but fun Christmas gift of a batch of felt cookies for the neighborhood friends. From the June 11, 2009 American Craft and Felt Blog.

    I do love your easy bedskirt tutorial–on the list for after the holiday rush.


  323. Susan says:

    I would love to have the boy package! My favorite tutorial online is this dragon pattern.

    I made one for my son and am in the process of making one for my daughter.

  324. sarah says:

    the little girl set por favor! so sweet! i personally like the christmas stocking tutorial the best. especially the ribbon hanger!

  325. Gorgeous goodies in your giveaway! I would pick the girl package since I have two little girls πŸ™‚
    I have two tutorials I would love to see; one for a simple sleeveless summer dress and another for a tool pouch for things like scissors and beading pliers.

  326. I would pick the girlie pack for my beautiful nieces! My favorite tutorial at the moment is one I found for a wall hanging organizer!! I am not super organized and that is going to at least help in some areas πŸ™‚
    Kimmy Ho

  327. Claudia says:

    I would love the boys package please. And I will divide it up between me and my children. And there are so many wonderful tutorials in the internet that are so much fun I really couldn’t say which are my favorite. Attic 24 for crochet, ricrac for dolls and softies and so on and so on.

  328. rockgranny says:

    I would like the girls package…
    no favorite tuts- i just like them all
    and try to make as much as I can
    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Kind regards,

  329. BixiandGoxi says:

    I love all tutorials for things my boy could like or wear (so I would choose the boy package). I have a little girl too and it’s always so much easier to sew something for her!

  330. Bunny says:

    I would love to win the girl package. Both packages are adorable!

    I have been searching all over for stylish boy clothing patterns, and even on etsy for pre-made clothing for boys. But it seems that everything is made for girls, or boys under age 6. My boy will be turning 8 this month; I would love to make some “cool” clothes for him.

  331. FibreJoy says:

    What a lovely gift you are offering! I loved your girl package!

    My favorite tutorials are usually the ones to make small accesories, like bagas, pouches, purses, etd.

    Thank you so much for participating in this giveaway!



  332. Lynne says:

    Wow! I’d love the boys package. I’d love to see more tutorials for boys. i always have lots of ideas for my daughter but not my son.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  333. Amy says:

    Oh, I love the girly package and loooove your blog! I would love to see a sewing tutorial for an easy, long jersey dress for women. Weird, but I have been dying to make one of these as a “casual but not jeans” outfit!

  334. Katy says:

    I am not sure I could pick just one tutorial..but I use them all the time;) I am a big fan of the boys group:)

  335. I like the girly set! How about a tutorial to make an easy and quick knit tee shirt for adults?

  336. alysonhill says:

    I learned almost everything I know from your cutie pouch tute, although mine are never quite as cutie, probably beacuase it’s something I decide to do 10 minutes before I leave the house with one as a little gift! Both your packs are, of course, adorable, but the boy pack is my fave!

  337. Lilly says:

    I love the girl package! Aww so cute!
    I really like any bag tutorial ^^
    Thanks a lot for the chance.

  338. Megan says:

    That boy package is just adorable! Actually, they both are! And I love your selections for the stash booster…delightful. My favorite tutorial is for FutureGirl’s Supercute Sea Creatures…they’re simple and adorable to boot!

  339. marcela says:

    mmm so beautiful! hard to pick. I have a son and a daughter. Maybe the girl set? and the fabrics are beautiful!

    About tutorials. I’m just learning to sew and quilt. And I’m just overwhelmed about all the possibilities, all the designs, all the creative blogs and people out there. I’m just fascinated with what I’ve found so far, that I can hardly think of something else to have.

    and by the way. I’m glad you are participating in this giveaway because this is the first time visiting your blog.

    Thanks so much for your wonderful giveaway. Thanks for sharing.

  340. Libby says:

    I definetly love the boy package, although I have a niece who would think the girl one was super neat ! Lately, I love a key fob tutorial on craftster as I’m making those for Christmas, but I also really love a tute I found that makes an adorable kid’s tote bag out of 2 fat quarters.

  341. TxWoods says:

    Girl…Girl…Girl….is how we roll! I will have to come back and look at the tutorials….I want to try to make a small bag a little bigger than a coin purse but smaller than a wallet…both packages look so cute!!!

  342. Bettina Groh says:

    The boy package would be for my grandson!! Please enter me in the giveaway! Thank you!

  343. Katie says:

    I love the boy package. Very cute. And I’m guessing my boys would love it, too.

  344. socmama says:

    I would prefer the girl package. And–perhaps ironically–I’d love to see more tutorials for boys clothes and toys. Thanks!

  345. Dr. Bec says:

    would love the boy package!
    My most recent favorite tute is Liv’s scrap fabric play mat:
    so cute and fun!

  346. Grace Wong says:

    I’d love the boy package!
    And I love felt food tutorials!

  347. Lucie says:

    Girl package please!!! your stuff looks super cute.

  348. kleiosbelly says:

    I want the “boy” package but I’m keeping it! Really cute stuff! My favorite source of tutorials is Lisa Lam at

    I make a lot of bags and purses and she is the best at explaining complicated techniques!


  349. gina says:

    Oh I have an 11 year old granddaughter that would be perfect for! Thanks for doing this!!


  350. Joy says:

    I would love the boy package if I win. Thanks!

    I love any purse or stuffed animal tutorial.

  351. mmperdue says:

    The boy package is adorable. I just made a quilt from the string quilt tutorial over at Film In The Fridge. I was so happy with how it turned out! I used the paper-piecing method which was really fun. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  352. Brittany says:

    Thank you! What cute things you make! I love the boys’ package. My favorite tutorials are from my friend Dana at MADE. I wish I had a girl so I could make her shirt dress.

  353. Lora says:

    wow! they’re both so cute! i think i’d pick the boy set. thanks for the chance to win!
    i love any kind of easy shirt tutorial
    ps-check out my blog for a vintage goodie basket giveaway!

  354. Hey, great giveaway! I have two girls, so I would choose the girl package. Hm, a favorite tutorial…that’s tough, there are so many good ones out there. My go-to site for quilt ideas and tutorials is Crazy Mom Quilts. Her entire site is inspiring!

  355. Amy says:

    Ohh, very nice! I would go for the boy package, its very cute. My fav tutorial is Oh Franson’s Pincushion Organizer. It’s extremely handy, I love mine. Thanks for the giveaway.

  356. Madeleine says:

    I have twins : a boy and a girl… Always hard to choose but this time I’m gonna go with the boy. There is less stuff for them! I love the tutorials by Oh! Fransson. So clear!

    Thanks for the great giveaway! Happy holidays!

  357. β™₯Lola says:

    I love your work! I’m so glad I found your blog. I like the girl package. And I would like to see some more tutorials for boy stuff. It is always so hard to come up with things for boys! πŸ™‚

  358. Jona says:

    A favorite tutorial of mine is definitely the string quilt by film in the fridge. She makes it sound so easy so that one is determined to get through (even though it kind of gets a bit boring in the middle). But with her encouragement and beautiful pictures I am always motivated to get the quilt I started done πŸ™‚
    As for your giveaway: I would chose the boy package. I don’t have kids but a little brother who would – I am sure – love it! I know I do!
    Thank you for this opportunity.

  359. thepowerofme says:

    I love these little things you’ve made!
    I would love the boy package. so cute!

  360. javede says:

    I would like the boy set. And I really need a tutorial for a boxy bag that can be used for knitting projects.

  361. Meghan says:

    The boy set would be perfect for my little guy. I love tutorials of all kinds. I don’t think I have a favorite.

  362. Katy says:

    They are both cute but I would like the boys package! I think I’m going to try your tutorial for the cute pouch. I’ve been wanting to make one and just came across yours. I’ll be bookmarking your blog!!


  363. *Miss Cake* says:

    My favourite tutorial right now is for tea wallets! I’m on a tea binge, so everything is tea-oriented πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for the chance to win! I would choose the boy package for my son.


  364. Danielle says:

    I would pick the girl package for my 2 year old daughter. the boy package is cute too but won’t get much use yet. (we do have a boy due in 2 months though)

    my favorite tutorials are some of the ones on amy butlers site. i love the kitty one and some of the quilt ones. I have so many sewing tutorials saved. I do agree with some other people, I would love more clothes tutorials. i want to venture into making more clothes for my daughter.

  365. aSprinkling says:

    Yay! A boy prize! I have one boy and two girls, but I think the boy gets left out a lot. There are so many cute girl things out there, but not much “to make” for boys. I’m sure there could be more. So…that would be my tutorial request. Boy things. Boy clothes (that look masculine), boy toys, boy pillows, anything boy.

  366. Erin says:

    This is adorable and quite generous – thanks for participating! I’m such a bumbling noob, I have a hard time with any but the most basic tutorials, with instructions like, “this is your needle – it is *sharp* on one end. Put that end into the fabric, and then bring it back out again.” I love the little girl package. πŸ™‚

  367. Nanbon44 says:

    I would pick the girls package for the grand daughter. and I am new to quilting so I think a tutorial for machine quilting with tips and tricks would help me.

  368. Theresa says:

    Love the girl package! I love ALL the tutorials out there, and if I don’t like them, I try to make them better! Tissue pack covers are my favorites – I’ve made tons of these.

  369. Misty.Creek says:

    I’d share the girl package with my daughter. I love “Made by Rae”s buttercup bag pattern–well-written, cute bag and it’s free!

  370. Max. H says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! I would love the boy one! This boxbag tutorial is one of my all time favorites:

    The instructions are all photographed and very clear – it’s one of my favorite things to make!


  371. Lu says:

    Both packages are great, but since my little boy (2 months) is too young to enjoy the boy package, I’d choose the girl package for my precious nieces! Lovely giveaway — thanks for posting!

  372. annalea says:

    the boy package is so great – i would love to see more boy oriented tutorials. thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  373. FlowerMomma says:

    I would love the girl package. I have three!

  374. Breanna S. says:

    I love the girly package. I would love to see a tutorial for an easy zippered bag.

  375. Susana says:

    Hi! My baby girl would love that bundle! And I’d love the fabric. My favorite tutorial is one I’m attempting now, Molly Monkey.
    Thanks for a great giveaway.

  376. I like the boy package. As for tutorials, I found a cute snap purse tutorial, however I haven’t found a cute frame that I want to use, so I have been putting that off.
    Email is

  377. Sian says:

    adorable! I want both boy and girl! hehehe. If I HAD to pick, though, I’d choose the boy one, since boy stuff is so much harder to find. I love any tutorial, my fave of yours is the stocking one. I didn’t get to it this year, maybe next?!

  378. StephanieS says:

    As much as I want those ponytail holders for myself, I have a son so I pick the boy set for him.
    Thanks for the link to the ‘Black Apple Dolls.’ I think it was a tutorial. I plan on checking back after entering more giveaways.
    Great prize!

  379. Jenny says:

    I’d choose the boy set. Those little bitty robots are so cute. I made this tutorial recently : Rice bag feet warmer with just a touch of this for the closure.

  380. Kimberly says:

    Boy package, please! Not enough cute boy things around here. πŸ™‚ I love to see bag tutorials. My favorite is this one here:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  381. My niece finally has hair long enough for things like a band so I am on the pink team.
    This year I am making dress-up clothes for her and have been hunting up and down for a good frog costume sewing tutorial. Yes, she loooves frogs.
