Sew Mama Sew - Giveaway Day

Welcome fellow bloggers! When I heard about Sew, Mama, Sew!'s Giveaway Day, I thought it might be fun to participate and meet new people. So here I am, giving away my very first thing!

I first started sewing as a little girl. My mom taught me counted-cross stitch and signed me up for a sewing machine class. At the time, it didn't really stick. But here I am--more than 20 years later--loving it! I reconnected with sewing because of my dear friend Cobble. About a year ago, we decided to take a quilting class together and the rest, as they say, is history. I've found that my absolute favorite part is choosing fabrics and playing with color combinations. Browse through my blog to see.

Up for the winning is one gathered clutch (made following the tutorial from Noodlehead). I'm working on my giveaway clutch right now, so I don't have a picture to share, but here is a picture of one that I made for my sister:


*Update: I've selected and cut the fabrics for this clutch. I can't wait to see the finished product... it should be cute when it's done!



To enter this giveaway, leave a comment introducing yourself and sharing a little bit about your own crafting history. I will choose a winner after 3PM EST on May 26th (make sure that your email address is on your blog/profile so that I can contact you).

Yes, I'll ship internationally!

  1. Do I count? My name is M's.
    I've been crafting and doing fine arts since I was little. I've done anything from sculpting to pen and ink drawing to sewing. Sewing is one thing I don't really have time for so it would be nice to win a hand sewn item by one of my crafty talented awesome friends ;)

  3. I've grown up in an artist family so I've been surrounded by such stuff since childhood! plus the convent school I attended taught needlework and crafts which I loved...I used to sew clothes for my Barbie dolls after I learnt to use a needle and thread...now I'm sewing clothes for myself! :D

  5. Love these clutches and the fabrics you chose are gorgeous.
    I am Sonja and have lived in lower Alabama all my life. My love for crafting (especially sewing) came from my mom and grandmother. They both are excellent seamstresses and I can remember, from a very early age, loving the smell of fresh new bolts of fabric and the sound of a running sewing machine.

  6. My grandma taught me to crochet when I was in about 4th grade and my aunt taught me cross stitch in the 5th. I started really machine sewing April 2010 when I had to make throw pillows and I haven't stopped yet.

  7. Hi there - I started quilting since my mom started and wanted help - I thought it was all for old ladies, but now my fabric stash is bigger than hers! The zippered pouches are cute - I want to make one but my list of to-do is long! Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. Yellow polka dots! Sorry, got distracted...

    I started cross-stitching when I was 12. That first one remains undone, but I've done plenty others since. I started sewing and quilting a few years back, but am still firmly in the "dabbling" category for those. :)

  20. How cute! :) My grandma taught me to sew when I was in 3rd grade. I still love it! Just opened my first etsy shop online selling aprons. Having a great time networking and meeting others who love the sew as well! I joke and say that it's cheaper than therapy. But as a stay at home mom, I need to do something fun for myself once and awhile. Nap time is my time to do that!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. I've always been attracted to all things artsy, but it wasn't until this past year that I've really gotten into crafting. I've learned nearly everything I've needed to know for projects from reading blogs. Right now I have been mainly focusing on sewing projects for babies. I'm hoping to learn to do other things with sewing and hopefully dabble some in knitting and quilting.

    I have always love to craft. I started with crocheting as a child making my first blanket at 10. I got away from it as a teenager, but when I became a mom I got into sewing and self taught (with some help from MIL and mom) my way into loving sewing and doing it everyday!!

  24. Oh, I love this clutch tutorial! I want to make one too.

    I don't know when I started crafting. I know my mother sewed and did some crochet. I always tried to learn but I never got into until a few years ago. Since then I have just exploded into the crafting side of life. I spin yarn, make book and I am starting to do some pottery too.

    Thanks for the chance to win this cute clutch. I can't wait to see it all put together.

Love your clutch don't have as much time to sew as I would like to. LOL never enough hours in the day.

  58. The fabric you picked out is really cute, it's going to be adorable!

    My name is Sarah, I have always been arts and crafty, beads and lanyard small crafty stuff growing up. My grandmother was a seamstress, so my dolls always had custome clothes that I hand sewed.

    More recently I reconnected with crafting when my boss had a baby and I made her a custom collegiate themed burp cloth. I had been longing for something productive while my husband studied for the CPA and realized just how much I love crafty kind of stuff!

    From there it's been a wonderful journey into sewing, quilting, crochet, bow making, made a valence, baby blankets and such and I just love it!

    thanks!

  62. My name is Deborah and I live in Atlanta, GA. I'm 58 years old, and I made my first quilt when I was 52 years old when my granddaughter was born. Since then I've only made maybe 4 or 5 quilts, so I'm still very much a beginner and learning something every time I sit in front of the sewing machine. It would be awesome to win something that has already been made and doesn't require me sitting down and figuring out how to do it. This prize would truly be a gift to me.

I lost her to cancer about 6 months ago, and now I craft even more because it makes me feel closer to her. I hope I can inspire my kids someday when I get to be a mom.

  84. That is super cute. I'm a mom of 2 with a similar story. Mom tried to teach me when I was young, but I gave the "why will I ever need this" speech. After my first was born, I started making stuff and have loved it! J would be my initial of choice!

  85. My latest enthusiasm is for making bags (mostly) from reclaimed bits and pieces- clothes, ribbons, lace, buttons- whatever I come across that looks just right. Nothing is ever the same twice.
    I am starting to make pretty things for my little grand daughter too. So nice to use pretty fabrics with abandon.

  110. I am new to the crafty world. I grew up in a distinctly NON-crafty household, but after having two, and then three, kids, I decided that I didn't want them to grow up like that. So, I'm slowly slogging my way through learning. I've made a few articles of clothing for members of the family, and am finishing a quilt. I'm also desperately trying to learn to crochet (I'm a decent, if slow, knitter) but man oh MAN that's hard! :)

  114. I love the noodlehead clutch. :) Let's see, my mom taught me to sew when I was six. I got a sewing machine for Christmas that year (I still have it, 22 years later), and my mom says I sewed on it for three days straight. She also taught me basic crochet, and just a couple of years ago I learned how to knit, after wanting to for YEARS. I have so many little crafting stories my mom has told me, and I love remembering them and sharing that with her.

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  115. Oh, that fabric is so pretty! Love it!

    I learnt to sew when I was a child, then forgot it for a decade or so, and taught myself again when I was at university as I was fed up of sleeves always being too short for me (I'm quite tall). These days I make lots of vintage styled garments, mainly from the 1950's - so much fun! :-)

  116. My first sewing was a small purse with a zipper, Grandma taught me..maybe age 6-7. Since that time always interested in making something with fabric. Early in my marriage My DH observed that I was a pattern matcher and it lead to quilting as a hobby and passion! That's me in a nutshell! Thanks for sharing and the chance to have a sample of your passion. This is such fun!

  117. Hi! My name is Sally! I'm kind-of what I like to call a Sally-of-all-crafts. I do a little bit of many things and seem to go through phases. In the last 9 years or so, it has been rubber stamping, knitting, and now sewing. I've always sewn, but I have a new machine and it makes me happy. But boy, do I have a bunch of rubber stamp sets I need to get rid of!

  121. I LOVE your choice of fabrics for the gathered clutch!
    I'm Sonya missbossypants, and I only took up sewing 4 years ago, even though my mom sews and tried to teach me when I was a kid. I am addicted now though, and make a plethora of things for special orders, consignment, and craft shows. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  123. Love the little purse! I started "making things" when I was a little girl - use to love to sit on the front porch and sew doll clothes. I can still remember the jewelry making kit (plastic with shiny stones) my aunt gave me one Christmas. Now quilting and related sewing are my passions! So glad that you have discovered all of this fun!

  135. Hi, My name is Carla. I've been crafting ever since I can remember. When I was small, my aunt, grandmas and mom would have a quilt set up in the livingroom and handquilt it all. But I wasn't old enough to help... So I guess its in the genes, but I taught myself to sew & I'm in the process of learning to quilt on my own. Thanks for a chance to win your giveaway! :)

  136. I've always done crafts with my mother. I am especially interested in card-making, scrapbooking, sewing, and repurposing common items. I wouldn't say I'm expert at any of these crafts but I sure do enjoy them. Thanks for the chance to win. :)
