Sew Grateful Give Away (I’m a bit Late!)

So, here’s the post I should have put up yesterday!  It all went a bit wrong though what with one thing and another so please accept my apologies…  So lets get down to the fun stuff shall we?!

I have three prizes up for grabs:

First up is a hand made snood by Arthelia’s Attic.  It’s in a gorgeous purple colour and the grosgrain ribbon is held on with a safety pin so can be removed if that’s not your aesthetic and used as a brooch or anything else your heart desires!

The other prize up for grabs is for those sock knitting fiends.  I have a skein of hand dyed  Fleece Artist Sea Wool up for grabs.  Its 70% Merino and 30% Seacell and 350m/112g.  The label recommends 3mm needles to give 26sts to 4″ and it’s machine washable!  It’s in gorgeous shades of greens and blues.

And finally, for those who just like to sew, I’d like to offer you the Burda pattern of your choice!  It could be something as classic as the Jenny Pencil Skirt or one of their new Boudoir patterns…  What ever your heart desires!

The Jenny Pencil Skirt
5/2011 Dress with Peter Pan Collar
Bella Trousers

To enter, please leave a comment below letting me know which prize you’d like to win by 23:59 on Sunday 12 February 2012.  I’ll draw the winners name using the thingy on Monday.  This is open to everyone, everywhere as long as you’ve got a postal address!  Good Luck!

  1. Aha, here we go, I want that Jenny skirt. lol. I’ve been seeing lovely versions of it online, but never really thought it would suit my body shape. I have decided that I would never know if I don’t risk it.

  2. Again, Vicki, you have such a generous heart. I love all three of these prizes. If I must pick, I’m leaning towards the Burda pattern, I mean the snood, but I want that gorgeous yarn too. (Was that confusing?). Okay, if I must pick one, I will go with the Burda pattern. Thanks Vicki!

  3. Vicki – You have got to be the most generous blogger ever. Seriously! I would like a chance at the Burda pattern, and if I win, I would love the Bella Trousers. This year I’m determined to win the battle against trouser making… fingers crossed. Thanks for yet another great giveaway.

  4. Any Burda pattern? That is an awesome giveaway! I fell in love with the 01/2012 Satin/chiffon slip dress they posted recently, and I would love to make it!


  5. OHHHH WOOOOOW–i have never made a burda pattern sooooo i think i’ll go for one of those—THANK YOU

  6. Hello! What a wonderful giveaway! They are all such lovely prizes, & I would love the chance to win the yarn ….. being very fortunate in the snood department already 🙂

  7. I am still behind with putting up my giveaway so you’re still ahead of me 🙂

    I have read and heard so many great things about the Jenny skirt that if I won that’s what I’d like to get.

    Yay for giveaways!

  8. Thanks! I have recently discovered your blog and have really enjoyed reading it. I’ll throw my hat in the ring for the Burda pattern.

  9. Ooh thanks for a great giveaway! I’d love to win a Burda pattern, I’ve only ever used one from there before so it’d be good to try another one.

  10. I have been eying the Jenny skirt for awhile, but since I haven’t yet tried burda patterns I have been too scared to pull the trigger. I am certain that once I get started, it will be a long-term love affair with Burda.

  11. Well, all three of your prizes are lovely, but I will have to put my name in the hat (or snood) for the snood — it looks amazing and I love the color!

  12. I would love the burda style pattern, I have never used on e before so would love to check them out.
    What a great giveaway!
    Thanks and fingers crossed

  13. What a great giveaway! And how to choose?! Well, after debating with myself for a while, I ended up going for the snood. I love snoods but only have one in black this far, and as purple is one of my favorite colors, this would be a fab addition to my wardrobe! 🙂

  14. Ooh, what a truly lovely giveaway! I’d be thrilled with any of the prizes. I think I’ll have to put down for the snood, though – I’ve been longing for one of Arthelia’s for a very long time!

  15. Hello! Thanks for the giveaway – what lovely choices!

    I’d love to enter for the yarn please, the colours are gorgeous. Thank you 🙂

  16. I’d love all 3, but I think I would quickest use a Burda pattern. Thanks!

  17. Oh no! I love both the yarn AND the pattern! I’ll throw my hat in the ring for the pattern, however.


  18. Lovely things. As a knitter, I appreciate that you offered up some beautiful yarn. However, as a newbie seamstress, I think I’d have to go with a BurdaStyle pattern. There are so many super cute ones.

  19. I’ve never tried sewing with a Burda pattern before but have admired the styles. It’d be fun to give it a whirl!

  20. Thanks for a great giveaway ! I shall have to have a peep at your blog now too ! Please count me in for either the wool or electronic pattern – thanks again ! xx

  21. Oh,the sock wool looks like kelp and seagrass in the water at the beach, I could knit some mermaid socks with that 🙂

    What’s generous giveaway!

  22. O goodness…I have to pick only one! 😉 It’s debate between the yarn and the burdastyle pattern….I think i’ll pick the pattern! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  23. My last project was the Jenny skirt, and I loved sewing with that pattern. I’d like to try the Danielle dress as my next Burda pattern. The variations on it look so pretty! Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  24. I’ve been curious about the Jenny skirt for a while, so I think I’ll put my name in the hat for that pattern. Thanks for the chance!

  25. I am a knitter and a sewer so this is a wonderful giveaway. The yarn is beautiful but I’ve been coveting the Burda Style Halter Dress #116 since last June! Such a feminine dress and very appropriate for someone like myself who lives in Florida!
    Thank you so much, Vicki, for the great Giveaway!

  26. Oohh that yarn is pretty, but I can’t knit/crochet. I only sew. I would like a Burda pattern. The patterns sometimes don’t seem that great at first. But then I see some wonderful sewing blogger in their interpretation of the pattern and think “Wow! Why didn’t I see that?” A strong desire to copy the dress/blouse/skirt/trousers immediately ensues. Thank you for the opportunity to be a copycat.

  27. Oh what a fabulous giveaway – thanks for the chance to be in to win! 🙂

    I’d love any of the three, but if I had to choose I’d choose the snood, as I’ve been wanting to experiment with wearing one for a while.
