Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day





Starting December 13th, it's Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew - I'm happy to participate in this year's giveaways. Up for grabs is a car seat cover for the little one in your life and a nursing cover. As you can tell by my posts (for those of you who are dropping by for the first time), I recently gave birth to a baby girl 3 weeks ago. My husband and I opted not to find out the sex of the baby - so I crazily made almost two of everything to be prepared:) You can read about the making of these items in these posts - here and here.. They are very practical and make nice gifts as well!! I use my "girl versions" all of the time!!

I'll draw two winners on Friday, December 17th at noon EST. Don't forget to leave your email/way to get in contact with you! To keep it interesting, I'd love to hear your suggestions/links to your favourite baby patterns - whether knitting or sewing = hats, sweaters, quilts, you name it, I'm interested!! I'm happy to ship internationally.

Thank you for taking the time to drop by my little corner of the world! Hope to see you again (feel free to become a follower) and I'll definitely check out your blogs as well!

  2. Those are great. I have a newphew due in Feb so I'd be happy to take those boyish items off your hands. Thanks for a chance to win. I've been checking out Ashley over at Film in the Fridge for baby sewing inspiration as of late. She's been making some cute stuff.

  3. Ah, what a great giveaway! I love your blog. Your new baby is so beautiful...my daughter is almost one, and we are looking at double strollers (for the hopefully near future!), so these would be wonderful!

    I love making quilts for my little one. I'm definitely in the sewing camp, I can't knit at all.

  11. Wow, your little one is adorable! I love your blog, and love finding fellow quilting neighbours! (I'm in Ontario as well.) most of my sewing comes out of my head, and not from a pattern at all, so I can't help you out there.

    Thanks for the chance, I have a few friends that could most certainly use these!

    ReplyDelete
  12. What an amazing giveaway!! I would love to win either of these, as I just happen to be due in 9 weeks. And I'm having a boy! Perfect! :D Thanks for participating!

  46. Wow! Amazing you, participating in giveaway day with a newborn! Bless you.

    I love those car seat covers. I also love sewing from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby book, especially the bib, the tunic dress, and the toddler pants. I've gotta try out some of the other patterns, too.
    I love to knit feather and fan baby hats. (I posted my version for knitting in the round on my blog: http://skemommlenskedaddle.blogspot.com/2010/09/baby-hat.html)

  47. I'm having a boy in April, I could use either one of these items! And you two are saints if you could stand to wait.. I couldn't stand waiting at all with my pregnancies! I HAVE NO PATIENCE!

    Congratulations on your beautiful little girl... I've got two and while I'm excited to have a boy, I cherish my daughters!

    As far as my favorite baby patterns for sewing.. I haven't really come across anything other that completely struck out, although I did go crazy for Anna Maria Horner's book entitled "Handmade Beginnings" it has some cute toy patterns, as well as patterns for Momma pre and post pregnancy and diaper bag patterns. And of course fun patterns for baby!

    Another pattern that caught my interest is one from Made By Rae.. it's called "Big Butt Baby Pants" and it's a cute pant pattern catered for Cloth diapered baby butts, however it can be modified for disposable diapered babies.. here's the link http://www.made-by-rae.com/2010/08/big-butt-baby-pants-sewing-pattern.html it's $10, but in my opinion SO worth it having a tried and tested pattern for babies! and it's a gender neutral pattern too.

  48. I love, love, love the car seat cover! Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. What a sweet giveaway!
    I did not find out the sex with my littlest one, so I had alot of girly things to gift away! I'm not finding out this go round either, and I'm looking forward to the stockpile of items for charity and quick baby shower gifts, lol!
    My favorite children's items are any of Susan B. Anderson's patterns and any of the Spud and Chloe line!

  50. Congratulations on the new baby girl. She looks so sweet.

    My favorite baby gifts to give are homemade receiving blankets. When my daughter was born, we found all the store bought blankets to be too small to swaddle her in easily, so I made a bunch of bigger ones and we really liked them. Since then I've been giving them away as gifts and everybody likes them. It's easy, I just take two pieces of flannel fabric, one with cute baby prints and the other coordinating solid. I embroider on the solid side, in the corners, with designs that match the prints and the baby's initials (these are so useful if you go to daycare), then sew two sides together with decorative stitches, and viola.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Lovely stuff!

    I like Made By Rae's Big Butt Baby Pants because they fit cloth nappy bum!!

  52. What a lovely giveaway. My fav baby patterns are Ottobre! I've also heard good things about New Conception layette pattern.

  53. Wonderful giveaway! I love to knit baby booties - they are quick, cute, and you can never have enough!

  54. The nursing cover is so cute. I found a knitted sweater called the Ms. Darcy cardigan. TRES cute! Check it out at this link: http://blog.craftzine.com/435667576_238637c007.jpg
    I wasn't able to find the pattern, but at least this may be of some inspiration! I knit scarves but that is about it :o) I would love to do more, just haven't been able to learn with wedding planning. Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. Hello fellow Canadian! Love Canadian giveaways. I like making bibs (cuz you can never have too many) and just discovered quilting. I get most of my ideas from other blogs. There is one blanket I would love to make over at the Aesthetic Nest with a chenille back. Love it.

  65. My baby is almost five and now I am working on a quilt using her baby clothes. It will be fabulous one day. No pattern (or even a very good plan).

    The prizes would be great for some friends who are expecting a little boy.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh my, this must be fate! We JUST found out yesterday that we are having a BOY in May. I had a feeling all along that it was a boy, and was a little sad thinking I wouldn't be able to make cute baby stuff (they all seem geared towards girls). Your covers have changed my mind! They are soooo adorable and boyish! You're amazing!!

  82. I'm about 3 weeks away from giving birth to baby #4 of unknown gender. We've never had a surprise before and I'm really getting excited! Unlike you, however, I have not been adventurous enough to make much stuff yet. I do plan on making one blue and one pink coming home outfit, but that will have to wait until after Christmas. I hope the baby does too!
    Congratulations on your little girl!

  87. I didn't find out the gender of either of my children before hand, and I loved it being a surprise! I made a patchwork ball for my daughter when she was a baby and she still plays with it two years later. It's great for babies to grab and mouth, and for toddlers to throw in the house. I used this tutorial: http://www.ihanna.nu/download/tutorial_patchwork_balls_by_ihanna.pdf

  88. Love these! Congrats on your little one! I'm expecting in February so this would be very timely if I were to win. I'm a knitter and one of my favorite patterns for my new little guy is the Owlie Sleep Sack: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owlie-sleep-sack

  94. Lovely giveaway! I'm expecting my 2nd in April - also not finding out the sex. It's so hard tempting though! I really like the Sleeve Saver Bib pattern from SewBaby. Made bunches for my son, though just used old T-shirts serged together into two layers, since bibs get so dirty anyway!

  100. We are opting for baby #2's sex to be a surprise as well, I already have lots of boy stuff since #1 is a boy but I don't think our baby, if it ends up being a girl, would really mind being covered by such a beautiful car seat cover, even if it is blue!
    One of my favorite things to make are fabric covered notepads. There's a tutorial for them on my blog! Blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  101. these are great! When it comes to babies and craftiness, I'm a sucker for anything knit with snowflake yarn...

    ReplyDelete
  102. These are so cute that I'd use them for a girl! I love these knit baby booties: http://bit.ly/b0FV9 But you have to read the notes from others on Ravelry to get the instructions right. I used the construction method of these for the above booties: http://bit.ly/i0HTa5 Thank you for the giveaway!

  107. Congratulations on your new little one! And thank you for sharing goodies, too. :)

    I'm not certain of my favorite link for baby items. It's a tough call. I have some really talented friends who create things, and Etsy is always fun to browse for ideas. For quilts and quilty goodness, Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! is typically where I start.

    My daughter is five months old and I haven't used a pattern for anything for her yet. i've just eyeballed and tested and patterned things on my own. (Though I do have an Elizabeth Hartman quilt int he works.)

  188. i'm 6 months pregnnt of my first baby so this prize would come in very handy. and i never get to keep something for me so it would be a first :)
    i've been searching the net like crazy for baby girl clothing patterns that i like. i prefer them reversible, simple and the type of clothes that grow with your child (you know, like when a dress turns into a tunic).
    please take the time to head over to my blog to participate in my giveaway too. i didn't make it to the list and it's something small, but there are so few participatns that you might actually have a chance :)

  190. Congratulations! And thank you for sharing -- I can't believe you made 2 of everything -- you are productive! :) I am just getting to the point now where several close friends and family are having little ones, so I haven't made a lot of baby items yet. I will say, I have been eyeing Anna Maria Horner's latest book for my library, as I know I will be doing loads of baby sewing soon!

    ReplyDelete
  191. My sister-in-law is 5 months pregnant and in the same situation - doesn't know if she will have a boy or girl, and so we're making lots of both! We're hoping to have a baby soon too, so we'll just save the extra :) I love that animals print, isn't that an Alexander Henry? Too cute.

    If you'd like to enter my giveaway in return, I'm giving away fabric coasters at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ananemone
