Weekly Giveaway Round Up – 2/27/15

Weekly Round Up of Giveaways - Sewers & Quilters @ Wowilikethat.comHi All,

Another great week for giveaways. 115 current giveaways going on today for sewers, quilters and crafters. I know it is 115 because I wrote it down this time. The older I get, the more my memory slips and that is why I believe God made paper and pens. My trusty little notepad is definitely my friend.

There is a sewing machine up for grabs, oodles of beautiful fabrics, great books and notions.

One of my favorite things that I can across this week besides all the wonderful, generous giveaways was this quilt. I love it. It is made by Jess Toye Quilts and she includes the template for the pin and a tutorial to make the quilt. Next baby that comes in my path is getting one of these.

32

I was lucky again this week and was the winner of a giveaway. I won the below quilt pattern from Lindsay Sews. I love it and I love her choice of pretty bright colors. I’ll be making this too. Thanks Lindsay.

Glass Half Full II Quilt

Hope you won this week too. If not, keep trying. You can’t win if you don’t enter. As always, be sure to look around the blogs where you are entering the giveaways, you are likely to find a few new favorite spots to visits.

The Giveaway List can be found here or at the top of the page. Good Luck!!!

See you next time.

More Free Quilt Patterns @ wowilikethat.com

Hi All,

Just a quick little post.  Yesterday I added 2 new quilt patterns to the Free Quilt Pattern List – this put is over 120 free patterns. All the patterns have a modern flare. You can find the list here.

Anyway, I found these two and they were so darn cute that I didn’t want anyone to miss them.

Hidden Star Retreat Star

This one is from Amy McHugs. I am so loving this quilt. Looks easy to make too. You can find the complete directions here. I was loving her blog too.

Hipster Cat Quilt || Free PDF Pattern || Shwin&Shwin

This one, on my gosh. Isn’t it the cutest thing?  This Hipstar the Cat quilt pattern can be found at Schwin & Schwin.

Be sure to check the Giveaway List today if you haven’t already. I think I added over 30 new giveaways today already. You can find the Giveaway List here or at the top of the page.

Weekly Giveaway Round Up – 2/20/15

Weekly Giveaway Roundup @ wowilikethat.com

Hi All,

82 giveaways going on today for sewers, quilters and crafters.  Be sure to scroll through the list and enter those that will be expiring today – there are a few.  The others can wait till tomorrow, right?  Some great things too – lots of beautiful fabric, lots of books and there is another sewing machine in the mix again.

There were things I wanted to win this week but didn’t. Drats!  Hope you won though.

I’m having thoughts of giving up the Giveaway List. It takes a lot of time but I don’t mind that. I look for giveaways on my own because I like the mail and I believe the sharing part brings me good luck. I don’t like doing all the work and someone taking it. That bothers me. I don’t know, I’ll ponder it.

My question to you, do you like the Giveaway Round Up and how I list them?  I like it. There are other places that list a variety of giveaways but not on a dedicated page and not always with pictures. None that I have seen with feature pictures. I don’t know of any other list that keeps the list current and up to date. Not like I do at least, I update daily.  I have also never come across one for just sewing, quilting and crafting. I’m not interested in other giveaways. I’m just not. I don’t care to win a frying pan, I have enough pans. Frying pans don’t inspire me to make things, not like fabric and beautiful sewing books do.  Share your thoughts on this. It would help me out.

Enough belly aching from me. On to the fun stuff. The Giveaway List can be found here or at the top of the page. Remember to visit the blogs where you are entering giveaways. You might become their newest fan and follower. Be sure to share the Giveaway List with your fellow crafty friends. The more the merrier. Please follow me too, either here or on Bloglovin or Facebook. The buttons are on the top right of the screen.

Good Luck.

See you next time,

Debbie

Painter’s Clutch

Hi All,

I just finished,  in less than an hour, this little purse.  I used the pattern and followed the instructions in the new “Just for You” book by Caroline of Sew Can She. It is called Painter’s Clutch because the handles are made from paint stir sticks. How clever!

Painter's Clutch at wowilikethat.com

Here is the original from the book. It was designed by Blue Susan Makes and you can read her post about it here.

I used two fat quarters and some left over solid black for the lining. The embroidery design is from Urban Threads and I embroidered it on solid black, trimmed and raw edge appliqued on the fabric before construction.

I like these little birds and have used them before. Not long ago I used them on the pillow I blogged about here.

what can a thrifted sheet & 1 fat quarter make @ wowilikethat.com

I didn’t have a snap so I used a button and a piece of elastic as the closure. Worked perfectly.

It was so easy and quick to make, I am going to make another. I think I’ll try denim this time.

The book is full of easy, quick projects. You can read more about the projects at Sew Can She.

See you next time.
