{Published!} Sew Special Book + Fabric Giveaway


I'm so excited to share this!  Last summer I was approached by an author of a sewing book publishing company, Annie's, to submit some pattern designs for their upcoming baby book.  Well one of my designs was accepted and TA-DA!  I got published and crossed a goal off my list.  The books is called Sew Special Baby Gifts.  My pattern is the Sleepy Giraffe Softie.  The book was designed to have patterns in it for beginners or for those who wanted to sew something up in an hour or less as gifts.  This definitely fits the specs.  You can make several of these sweet things in an hour!

There are some other very talented designers that are also in this book.  Check out this adorable diaper bag! I love the fabric choice, simple design and the sleek look.  I look forward to trying this one out myself for some upcoming gifts.

Here is an adorable fleece hat. Now seriously what baby wouldn't be adorable in this and I bet you can use your scraps up on something this small.  This needs to go on my pinboard for projects that use up scraps, cause my scrap pile is always a little {ahem!} untamed.
Last I want to show you this little handmade block. This toy is perfect for any diaper bag and you could put a rattle inside and add a layer of something crinkly for ultimate baby appeal. My favorite crinkly under-layment beneath one of these cute fabrics is a chip bag.  Wash it out and upcycle it, plus that was free!  As you can see there is also a cute little ribbon tag on this.  This is another scrap-buster and a quick instant gratification project that will sew up fast.

In honor of my first pattern being published I am offering a FREE copy of this book to one lucky reader along with a yard of fabric {your choice!} from my shop.  Take a look at the book and tell me which pattern you want to try!
