Giveaway Day: Flower Bib Necklace

Today is Giveaway Day, sponsored by the lovely gals at Sew, Mama, Sew!

Welcome to all my new readers. I hope you'll hang around after the giveaway is over!

I've been playing around with new product ideas for my Etsy store, and I'm using one of them for this giveaway. I'm giving away a flower bib necklace, handmade by yours truly and constructed using tee shirt remnants.


For a chance to win the necklace, all you gotta do is leave a comment below letting me know what you look for in a craft blog. I'll use your comments to plan my future blog content. For a bonus entry, just follow me on Twitter and leave a separate comment here letting me know!

Since my blog is pretty new, I'd also appreciate some new followers! In the coming weeks, I'll be making pillows and underwear out of my old tee shirts, sewing some baby stuff for my niece, and finishing a wide-brim sunhat I've been working on for 2 years. (Explanation for the 2 years is also forthcoming.)

I will ship internationally, so out-of-U.S. commenters are welcome! The deadline to enter is midnight EST on May 25, when I'll be choosing a commenter at random.

If you don't win, you can still have one of these necklaces! I'll be posting a how-to for sewing the necklace. If you're not a sewer, you'll be able to buy similar necklaces in my Etsy store!

Good luck to everyone!

  25. This necklace is adorable! I like that you used pieces of tees to make it. As for blogs, I look for blogs with nice photos, that aren't overflowing with widgits , and that have simple backgrounds that load quickly. Drives me crazy when blogs take forever to look at because they don't load quickly.

    I like tutorials in blogs. I also love higher quality, almost artistic photography of the items.
