GIVEAWAY DAY!

This giveaway is now closed. For real this time! Winners have been notified via email. Thanks so much for stopping by!


Welcome to my little giveaway! ***The giveaway for the two pouches is now closed. But because I am a dork and didn't realize the giveaway was to remain open until the 17th, I'll do this: Check out my etsy shop and let me know which bookmarks you like best and I'll be happy to send the winner a set of two! If you've already entered, no need to re-enter. I'll choose a winner from all comments received.***

I have been busy crafting up a storm in preparation for the holidays and thought someone (maybe you!) would love a little stocking stuffer for yourself or a special someone.

I will be giving away two cute snappy pocket keychains:

These are made from some of my favorite Japanese fabrics and are fully lined.

Perfect for carrying change for the parking meter or some coffee cash for a quick run to your favorite cafe.


Now for the nitty gritty:

This giveaway is open to US residents only (sorry to my international friends!)

To enter leave a comment here telling me your favorite handmade gift to either give or receive.

If you are so inclined, please visit my etsy shop (100% of the proceeds go to charity) and if you see a bookmark you like, let me know. I just might have to include one if you win!

This giveaway will remain open through December 15 and two winners will be chosen at random. Winners will be notified by December 17 and prizes will be shipped by next Monday, December 20. Be sure to leave a way to contact you if you win!

Good luck! And be sure to visit the many other talented crafters participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day!

  2. I love cute japanese fabrics :) I'm not sure I can pick a favorite handmade gift to receive - I definitely appreciate anything handmade. I like to give scarves though.

    I really like the bookmark with the frog that says "once upon a time."

  3. ooh, my go-to gift would probably be a zipper pouch- they are quick and easily customized to the giftee with fabrics and other embellishments. Oh, and I love the once upon a time bookmark - it would be perfect for my daugther!

  4. I love handmade gifts that compliment the person - handmade says they were thinking specifically of me (or vice versa). It's the thought that goes into handmade items.

  26. Hard to pick a favorite . . . I try to tailor the gifts I make to the recipient so I rarely make 2 of the same item. I do enjoy giving stuffed animals I make to the kids in my life . . . but no 2 have been the same! ;)

I have to say, baked goods are one of my favorite things to give, because it's easy to please pretty much anyone with a pie, but fingerless mitts aren't necessarily everyone's cup of tea. I love the princess and the frog and the bee bookmarks! Thank you for the giveaway!
