My 1st Give a Way!!

In honor of my 50th post and my baby(not Tristan) my 1st baby turning 17 tomorrow, I am in the mood to give something away. So let's see. I know! I LOVE scrappy sewing, it is one of my favorite things to do. Whether I am using hard to find fabrics, little scraps left over from other projects or recycled odds and ends from tee shirts and such. My beanie PDF provides a really fun project that even the least experienced seamstress will love to sew. I think it takes me about 5 minutes now from cut to finish! This is probably my favorite pattern for my kids and has gotten the most use. My now 17 yr old loves to wear them, my daughter has wore them in her tween period and Noah my 7 yr old almost always has a beanie on his head. Tristan has a few already too, I guess they are staples of our wardrobe around here!

I will email 3 lucky winners a copy of my Scrappy Beanie PDF pattern and send them a few knit scraps to make a beanie with in the mail! Just leave a comment telling me who you would sew a beanie for(can be preemie up to an adult!) and what kind of beanie that person would like. You could say things like character fabrics, superheroes,bugs, stripes, dots, solids, cars, you name it and I will see if I can find a little something something in the stash! And PLEASE leave your email for me, so I can contact the winner. It's so sad when you win and no one can get a hold of you!!

I will leave the comments open until midnight, Sunday March 13,2011, EST of course! Winners will be posted on Monday, March 14, 2011!

Now let me hear who needs a beanie!!


  1. I need a beanie!! =)
    I would sew them for my 2 boys (ages 7 and 5)...they LOVE superheros.

  2. I want to play! I've been following your blog since I saw your diaperswappers show and tell threads, love your sewing and the new blog layout. I'd be sewing them for my boys, 4 and 1 and due in May. Solids and stripes would be great!

  3. I would sew beanies for each of my kids, ages 4-13. My only girl (age 4) would probably get the first one and it would definitely be pink!

  4. I was just looking to see where I could buy your beanie pattern. Was thinking about using it for my neighbor who is undergoing chemo and has lost all of her hair. I have seen you beanies at sewing mamas, btw. They are so cute!

  5. Oh, my email address is

  6. oops... :)
