in giveaway

Hey readers!  Today is a blog first for me, I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY!!!! I’ve been hesitant to do a giveaway before because I’m scared that I will post something I made and NO ONE wants it!!!  How sad would it be if no one enters for my free stuff? That  would be so embarrassing!  So please ease my fears and enter below!! I decided to do the giveaway as a small thank you for reading my blog.  I am truly so grateful and humbled by everyone who reads and comments on this site.  I have the best group of readers!  You are all so kind and encouraging!  You motivate me to keep on going!

Yesterday, I posted a tutorial on how to make an American Apparel circle scarf (click on photo to see full tutorial):


Today, I’m giving away the pink scarf to one of my blog readers! This scarf could be yours!

To enter the giveaway, just comment below with your name, email address and one thing that you are grateful for today. The giveaway is open until Friday, October 21st midnight PST.  I’ll randomly choose a winner and announce it on Monday and mail the scarf to the winner. Good luck, everyone!

Today, I am grateful for everyone who reads my blog!! Thanks for reading!

Today I’m especially grateful for my church – it’s filled with such amazing people that I can honestly look up to, be friends with, and call family. I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with a church home!

Hi! I’m grateful for all of the crafty people (like you) who figure out these wonderful things like circle scarf knock-offs and then share them with others instead of keeping it to themselves! I saw your scarves on Pinterest and my daughter and I went and bought fabric today to make 3 of them. How fun and easy- we love them! I was looking for a pink fabric but couldn’t find one that I liked so hopefully I will win yours. So I’m grateful for you, not only because you shared these scarves, but because you (inadvertently) created a fabulous day of fabric shopping and sewing with my beautiful daughter. Thank you!

This may sound silly, but I’m grateful that it’s getting cooler. I’m loving this fall weather! Today is the first I’ve worn my new boots, and it feels awesome! Sometimes it’s the little things. Like boots. And scarves! :)

I’m grateful for the time I get to spend with my grandfather! I’m looking forward to seeing him this weekend – he has cancer and this may be the last time he’s able to visit.

Holy cow, lots of entries! I wandered over to the scarf tute via Pinterest, and was completely stoked at the idea of winning a scarf!

OK, grateful today that my kids still want to spend time with me (because they are getting to that age). I am so glad I realized that I need to be more present before it was too late.

Thanks for the opportunity! kateslegacy@gmail.com

Your scarves are beautiful, I got to your blog from Sew Can She today, her daily free tutorial! I have a quick hint on sewing knits, if you pin a strip of tissue paper (repurposed from all those gift bags you probably get!) along the knit fabric seam where you are going to sew, the pressure foot to your maching glides along nicely and won’t pull on the knit fabric.
Hope you can do another scarf give away, the fabrics you have are lucious, and we don’t have the fabric outlets up here in upstate New York, cow country!

161 ilene January 20, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Thanks for the tip, Cathy! I’ll try that!! I also heard putting a piece of tape underneath the pressure foot also helps, but I haven’t tried it before. – ilene :)
