Sew Mama Sew ~ Giveaway Day...

Early this year, I thought it was about time I found out what blogging was all about. Through my RSS feed, I subscribed to a few blogs. I read everything they posted, but I didn't ever participate by commenting.

In May of this year, along came Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. There were SO many prizes that I wanted to win. In order to be in the running, that meant I had to comment. I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about doing so. However, my desire to win something was stronger. I was like a mad woman, reading and commenting.

It was all worth it, because I did win something; a pattern of my choice from Little Lizard King. More importantly, though, I found lots and lots and lots of fabulous blogs that I wanted to read and so I began following them. This in turn led to me starting my own little blog.

So, here I am participating again in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. Not only do I hope to find more fabulous blogs, but this time I'm giving away something as well. I'm hoping I'll be lucky and win something like last time.

With further ado, here's what I'm offering to one lucky reader......


1 yard of fabric: Paper Dolls by Sheryl Rae Marquez,  # 28118, from Windham Fabrics. 

To give you an idea of size, these gorgeous little paper dolls are 2 inches in height. Aren't they just adorable?






What do you have to do to win?
  • Leave me a comment telling me what you would make from your Paper Dolls fabric, if you win.
  • I'll need a way to contact you if you win. If you are a no reply blogger, or if you don't have a blog, leave your email address with your comment. You can write your email as...
That's all you have to do... leave me a comment and a way to contact you if you win.


Bonus entries (not mandatory):
  • Follow Threading My Way and leave me a separate comment below. The GFC box is in the sidebar at the top of the page.
  • Like Threading My Way on Facebook, then come back and leave me a separate comment below.

Three chances to win!!! Leave separate comments for each.

  • Giveaway is open to international readers.
  • Giveaway will finish at 5pm PST, Friday 16 December (That's about 9am EST, Saturday 17 December in Australia.)
  • The winner will be chosen by random.org

Have fun during the week of Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I hope you find lots of blogs that you will want to follow and good luck winning something.


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to reading your comments and I hope to see you again.


Edited to add: In replying to comments, I've found a handful of commenters whom I couldn't contact. If I can't contact you, then you won't be able to win this giveaway.

    This fabric matches my middle daughter's personality, so I'd have to use it to make her something...maybe a new lil' bag! :)

  8. What a beautiful fabric print! My first niece is due any day now. If I won I would make a gift or her. I'd have to feel the fabric to know what to make - either a small dress or a doll's dress maybe, or something else that the mother-to-be needs. I would definitely use the scraps for myself - to touch up a bag and/or the pockets of a skirt. Thanks for participating in the giveaway!

  73. I had some Paper Doll fabric that I just about used up. I originally bought a fat quarter as an impulse, in a lovely quilting store in Oregon, as one of the dolls looked so much like my daughter. I cut the doll out and used it to make a stuffed small doll for her. Her mini-me! The rest I used up in making my daughter a snack bag for school.
