May Giveaway Day!!!

Click the image to see the master list of giveaway contributors!
Oh Boy!!! OH BOY!!! It's that time again! And this year we are super excited to not only be hunting for giveaway treasures in the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day, but to be hosting as well!

I have recently become addicted to Charm Squares and am trying to develop the habit of automatically grooming all of my scraps from my sewing projects into these delightful 4 inch blocks. 
 Charm Squares are perfect for a variety of projects...especially when the work of cutting is already done for you! You can use them for quilts, clothing, bags, you name it!
 As you can see, my collection is growing rapidly!
So much so, I'm going to giveaway 100 different squares!
That's right 100 Charm Squares!!!
 PLUS...yes, more fun! I love using personalized labels in my sewing, so I'm going to share some of the great labels I've acquired with you too!
Aren't they cute???
Now, to get entered.

Amanda said...

I love making little girls clothes, there is something special about the look on a child's face when you give them something you made for them. I think it also helps them appreciate and recognize handmade items earlier.

Like you, I love charm squares because they've already the size they need to be and that eliminate work on my part. I generally stick with quilts and am now working on charity quilts, so can always use items from giveaways. So I enter as many as I can. But I think this one is going to be the death of me. Ha-Ha

Kelly said...

I love sewing for my kids -- pretty much anything, though I am limited as all I have are boys! I've also been on an apron sewing kick. Pretty much, if I know you at all, you may already possess (or soon will possess) an apron made by me.

I've never used charm squares before, but I guess winning some would be the best time to try using them.

I love sewing bags and accessories for people. So far my favorite has been a bag I made for my husband's grandmother. She gave me her sewing machine, so I made her a bag. I'm excited about it because she says she's replacing her Vera Bradley bag with the one I made her!

I sew for my grandchildren and right now I am making quilts for my son's teachers. He is autistic, blind and has CP and these amazing educators actually supported him to graduate from high school. Some of his teachers and therapists have been with him since elementary school and I really want to let them know how much they are appreciated.

I make a lot of bags. Fabric wrist cuffs and fabric bookmarks. Some jewelry. Scarves. I like to try new things, so each holiday I tend to pick a new project or two to work on as gifts.

My favorite thing to do... and has been for the last 9 years.... is making quilts for Wounded Warriors... It is a wonderful organization and brightens up their room and shows just a little bit of my overwhelming appreciation for all they do! Thanks so much for a chance to win!

Katie said...

My favorite thing to make has been soft books and other baby/children's toys. Perfect projects for charm squares! I'm obsessed with them too. katiefewell(at)gmail(dot)com

Based on what I've made the most of for others, I'd say swaddling blankets for babies. :) I also feel a compulsion to make sure everyone has at least one good apron. Aprons are an essential in my book. Thank you for such a lovely giveaway! I'm so impressed that you're making a habit of cutting your scraps into 4" squares!

I'm new to this whole blogging thing so this giveaway event has been a great opportunity for me to find great sites like this. And what a wonderful collection you're offering. (My eyes more than lingered over that sewing print.) I've made scarves for the ladies in my family and baby blankets for coworkers. Lately I've been making seasonal quilted placemats and and giving them to family. Those have given me a lot of joy. I look forward to your updates. Many thanks!!

I love to sew quilts for others. I have yet to keep one for myself. I can't help it, I'm a giving soul. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kristina said...

Hi. Thanx for your comment at my giveaway!
Your giveaway is fantastic, I hope I win. Since I'm into bag making I love it when I can make an individual bag. When someone asks me to do the bag unpon their wishes.

My favorite thing to create for others is APRONS!
I am a huge apron geek, and so I am slowly converting everyone I know ( men and women) into them too. You see, I have this master plan where I convince everyone to start wearing aprons, then pretty hats, then...everyone shall start dressing like it's the 1940's again and I will be a happy little creampuff.

Thanks for the chance to win!!!!! those tags are darling and I love the idea of no cutting and patchwork!

Carly said...

I love making gifts for people and try to do something handmade for most holidays and birthdays. This year I've been making messenger bags for birthdays and I think I will do mug rugs and pillowcases for Christmas. :)

Sincerely, Sara said...

I like to make baby blankets as gifts. I am just starting to quilt and hope to get to the point where I can make for charities in the area. At this point I'm am primarily making for family members.

I love making wearable things for my boys as they always are so excited I made something just for them. ^_^ I'm branching out and hope to make bags and eventually whole quilts for family and for the local shelters - I'd love to make a bag or quilt for battered women and/or their children -- I just want to be "good enough" at it first, you know?

I like to make quilts & give them as gifts especially baby quilts.
Also I have been doing projects with Crafthope...helping many
people & also learning new techniques....bean bags to African
orphans, scarves for foster children, quilts for tornado survivors.
It's been fun plus also rewarding!

Jen said...

I have been sewing a lot of dresses and rompers for gifts lately. I decided to use my time making something with the fabric I already have rather than go out and buy something. So far they've all been very appreciative!

Cricket said...

I mostly make clothes for my girls, but I also love, love, love to make baby things for new babies. And you can check out what my daughter has started to make for someone else if you like. http://wisecricket.blogspot.com/2011/05/blues-quilt.html

Thanks for the chance to win your charm squares. I have been cutting into 2 inch squares for a postage stamp quilt, but maybe 4 inch would be better. Then I could add in prepackaged charm squares of my favorite lines.

Liz said...

I love to make quilts for newborn babies and their families. Thanks for the great giveaway!

JayTee said...

I like to make scrappy quilts for the Red Cross to give to families that are dealing with a crisis...lose of home due to floods, fires, etc. Most are for children. I have one daughter and one granddaughter...so only so many quilts needed there!! I also like to make quilts for the Wounded Warriors.

Leigh said...

Bags were always my go-to gift to make, because who can't use a good bag? But I'm transitioning over to quilts now, because I think my gift recipients might have a few too many bags now!

Brigette Joy said...

I'm just starting to sew, so I don't have a "thing" yet. All I've made for someone else is an apron and a bag, both fun!

If Toys Could Talk said...
