It’s been far too long since I’ve had a giveaway on my blog, so I decided what perfect time than the present to host another giveaway for you all. I’ve been finding lots of great stuff at flea markets and in various stashes of sewing items given to me by my mom, that I thought it was time I share the wealth with you all.
Since I blog about sewing as well as knitting I thought I’d put together a sewing-themed bundle and a knitting-themed bundle. The winner of the giveaway will choose which set of items they’d like to receive.
For the Sewers:
You can choose one of the following three patterns:
McCall’s 6872 dress from 1947 in a size 16 (34 bust):
Anne Adams 4988 dress from the 40’s in size 14 (or 32 bust):
Simplicity 4782 from the 50’s in size 12 (or 30 bust):
And no matter which pattern you choose, it will be combined with this notions set:
A very old yellow, plastic button set with buckle, some vintage grosgrain ribbon in pastel pink and some vintage baby blue seam binding.
For the Knitters:
A March edition of Stitchcraft from 1952 and one of my favorite yarns for vintage projects, Cascade Heritage Yarn: a fingering weight (aka sock weight) yarn.
The yarn is a 75% merino wool with 25% nylon, the same type of yarn I used to knit up my Caledonia Jumper. One of the best things about this yarn is that its machine washable.
How to enter the September Giveaway:
- Leave a comment letting me know what topic you’re most interested in learning more about. It can be anything, so don’t feel limited to sewing projects only. If you can’t think of anything new you want to learn, feel free to share your fall sewing plans instead.
For additional entries into the Giveaway:
- Add my site to your RSS reader OR be a current rss-follower (let me know in the comments section).
- Post this giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, or on your own blog (send me a link in the comments section).
Good luck everyone! I’ll be announcing the winner in one week’s time, on Wednesday, September 14th.
Oh, I nearly forgot to add that it’s open to anyone, no matter where you live; I’m happy to ship anywhere for you guys.
