A Gift For YOU: Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love Book Blog Hop Giveaway #1

Good morning giddy folks.

So by now you know all about the Sewing Tales Book Blog Hop, the "20 Bloggers in 5 days talking about 1 book" - right?

And you know all the awesome Sewing Tales Book Blog Hop Sponsors then too, right? they provided all the necessary tools and fabric for the bloggers participating in the hop - you know - that "goodie box", right?.

Well - guess what?! They gave me more, and it's time to party. I've had a couple of giveaways on other social media sites, before and during Quilt Market, but now I'm hosting one here. This is a big one - this is the same goodie box the bloggers got but with 2 extra Fat Quarters of Heather Bailey's new Lottie Da fabric!

So in the box - you will get: A copy of my book Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love (of course)

  1. Fiskars: RazorEdge Fabric Shears (9”) because no one should cut tons of fabric without a really great pair of fabric shears, and my all time favorite Easy Action MicroTip Scissors so you don't have arthritic painful hands after clipping and notching all of your edges.
  2. Dritz Tools: The Quick Turn Tool set that I can't make fun stuff without, a Bodkin (I call these fabric tweezers), an ever loving Seam Ripper we wish we never needed, a package of 5 various sized Doll Needles, a little package of 25 Assorted Craft Needles, a (reusable) box of Straight Ball Pins, a blue water soluble Fabric Marking Pen, and a Bamboo Point Turner (I also use this for pressing seams or creasing center marks instead of a little iron).
  3. Fairfield World: 1 Bag of Supreme Polyester Poly-Fil
  4. Bosal Foam: 1 Yard of their Create-A-Pattern paper to trace a lot of your pattern pieces on.
  5. Free Spirit Fabrics: 6 gorgeous Fat Quarters of Heather Bailey's new Lottie Da fabric
So how does that sound? Great - right?! Now the question is - what do you have to do to win it. Enter your name into the rafflecopter giveaway link below, tap your shoes together and say ten times "I think I can win, add more giddy to my life". Ok - not really, but it was funny anyway..

I love all the guests on the blog hop but I think my favorite item is the Dolly Moses Basket. I know my daughter would love this for her American Girl dolls!! Thank you for the fun. (

I'm just in the middle of paper piecing an Orca for my daughters birthday tomorrow so I think I'd make Drifter the Orca first, my children are keen on a UK tv programme Deadly 60 and Orca's are one of their favourites! All the projects look stunning! thanks for the chance

Oh my which one to sew first....maybe the turtle or the camper or the forest creatures, they are all just too cute and bring out the child in me. Thank you for your book and the chance to win {squeal}!!!

SewLittleToSay said... [Reply]

I have a sudden desire to sew an igloo or a light bulb :-)

enbartlett said... [Reply]

What a great giveaway! My girls would love tons of these but I think I would make the dolphin and orca whale first.

Jaime Roche said... [Reply]

Kerry - I can't wait to get a copy of your book. A free one would be even better! You make wish I had more hours in the day so I could sew/be creative more.

Unknown said... [Reply]

The turtle for my daughter!

Kato said... [Reply]

Hi! I saw your book on Sew A Straight Line the other day and it looks great :) There are loads of things I'd like to sew but I think I'd make the igloo first because my baby boy is just learning to hide things and find them again and he'd love it.

Kay said... [Reply]

I plan to sew the gnomes because they have such fun personalities and great shoes.

Trina said... [Reply]

Oh, pick me, pick me, pick me! I think I'd have to sew the doll Moses basket first. Two of them, of course- one for each of my doll loving little girls.

colesworth said... [Reply]

my daughter loves bunnies, so I'd have to do one of those for her ;o)

Beth said... [Reply]

Soooo hard to choose, but I know a little guy who would love, love, love the dolphin, so I think I'd start there.

leah said... [Reply]

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said... [Reply]

I love the Moses basket. . . something that can handed down from my daughter to her daughters (some day far far from now ;) and so on. It is beautiful and I would make that first. The turtle is a close second . . . my son would love to have one as he loves sea life. Thank you so much for this super amazing giveaway!

I have to make the Moses basket for my little girl. If it is as easy as it looks it might be my go to for all the girls gifts this year. Last year I made pencil rolls and PJ monsters for 12 kids and only 2 are boys.

Seaweed and Raine said... [Reply]

I spied the vintage caravan and car on Jess's blog, and it captured my attention right away!

Leanne said... [Reply]

What an awesome giveaway. I love the moses basket on two little banshees. Looks like a gorgeous book. Leanne

Mhairi said... [Reply]

I would sew the caravan for me but I know that plan will be hijacked by the smallest member of the family and the little forest friends will be demanded and made and then all their clothes and accessories. Then the dolphin for the eldest child and finally I might squeeze in the caravan before new requests come in!! This would be a book that would never get put on the shelf!

My daughter would want us to try to moses basket first to carry her treasures in!

juanitashandmade said... [Reply]

My girls will have me making one of everything.

craftytammie said... [Reply]

I want to make the hot air balloon!

Melissa said... [Reply]
