One Good Turn Deserves Another... and Now Another (AKA The Giveaway!)

Last month I participated in the Basics Charity Challenge and donated items to my local Ronald McDonald House. I really enjoyed participating and have made it a goal to continue to donate to local charities.

Well, imagine my surprise when I got an e-mail from Cara at Cara Quilts telling me I had won a prize in her drawing from all of those who participated! She told me I had won some patterns from Izzy & Ivy Designs.

Imagine my surprise again when I received my package from Izzy & Ivy yesterday and it contained not one, not two, but FIVE copies each of FIVE different patterns!! That's right, they sent me 25 patterns in all!!!

Since one good turn deserves another... and now another.... I have decided that TWO of my lucky followers will each win a set of the five patterns. Here they all are:


There's a messenger bag that I can't wait to make for myself:


The cutest hat called "Jack and Jill" that you can make for a boy or girl.


An adorable top called Beverly Belle ... wish they had it in my size... LOL!  Looks like it has plenty of "twirl factor!"


For sleepovers at Grandma's house, there is the Gabby's Sleepover Jammies pattern. They can be made out of cotton or flannel, and if you put leggings under it they could wear it as a dress... adorable!

And last, but certainly not least, there is the Claire Marie Topcoat. You could use different fabric options to make a warm winter coat or a darling spring jacket.


The hat size chart shows sizes Newborn to Adult; the twirly top, jammies and coat all show a size chart from 2T to 14!  I snuck a peek at the patterns and they look great ... plenty of instructions and diagrams so that even a newbie sewist like me could make them.

So how do you win you ask? It's simple... just be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post telling me you want them. Easy peasy!

The deadline to enter is by midnight this Friday, March 25, 2011. I will draw the 2 lucky winners on Saturday using a random number generator.  Please be sure and leave your e-mail address so that I can contact you if you are one of the winners.

Good luck everyone!

Oh, I do remember now that you had mentioned your sewing blog on your crochet blog a while ago. How did I not find it before now?!? The week with Beth sounds like it was SO fun!

And these patterns -- fantastic! I'd love to try them out!
