Giveaway the Sew Mama Sew Way. Yay !

Good Morning Gals! I am joining in the fun at Sew Mama Sew this week with a giveaway for a lucky reader!
Giveaway Week!
Go on over to the blog and see who else is up and playing along. You will have tons of opportunities to win giveaways of all shapes and kinds.

If you follow along on Library Gal Quilts, you know I recently made a cute project from the new book by Ayumi Takahashi Patchwork, Please!
I decided that I would like to give away all the fabric and a couple little tools to help you make your own Prettified Pincushion! 


There will be enough of Coco Land to make your pincushion and have some left over to cherish!  Additionally, there will be a chunk of  Essex linen  from Robert Kaufman. I love this stuff! I think you will too. The sides are made from a darling Japanese linen that has "postage stamps" of all kinds of lovely things from kittens to strawberries.

the giveaway fabrics !

 Finally a couple of extras to make your sewing a bit easier. A "fussy cut" template I made so you can trim your little kitties just how you want them. And a little tool to make the perfect 1/4 inch corners. A surprise button or two will also be included! 



the giveaway tools !

Your Final Project!

 

How to Win!
1. tell me what your favorite pincushion looks like! 
 I would say "my favorite pincushion is a big strawberry given to me by my friend Debbie".

2. For a Second Chance, Just follow me on BlogLovin 

I will pick my winner on Friday May 10th at 5 pm! I will mail internationally so everyone can play!

A BIG thank you to the gals at SewMamaSewhttp://sewmamasew.com/blog2/ for hosting such an awesome event! xo Pam
