Sewing Storm Giveaway!

First of all, I think our new national holiday was a success! I quite enjoyed reading what you love about yourselves: reading books to kids with different voices, NOT being a perfectionist, being emotional. I loved it all. Thank you for playing.

Second of all, I have been sewing up a storm and having so much fun doing it. Remember the "cLOVEr 2" dress? Her 2nd birthday celebratory dress? Good news: It's now in my Etsy shop. I've tweaked the design and made a version with the buttons and placket in the front. Of course, I can still make it just like Clover's, your choice. 2T or 3T.

To celebrate, I'm giving this one away! Leave a comment with the word two in it. I'll choose a winner Monday.



What else have I been sewing? You'll find out Friday!

  54. Two much Fun! That's become my motto with our twin babies. Everything in 'twos' around here. Twice the hugs and laughs! Forget the dirty diapers. If one baby is crying the other is most likely smiling. Ah, balance. Love, love babies! And the dress is just perfect for a sweet little cutie-puh-tootie.

  55. Oh goodness! How exciting. Well my little baby girl (not really anymore) just learned to tell people that she is two. And she would be really excited to own this darling dress, as she (by no doing of my own I don't think) likes to only wear dresses (It's true!) And I just bought some tights that would be so cute with this!

    You are amazing!

  87. Two pink shoes are sitting in the sun doing their best to dry. Yesterday it rained. Yesterday, my daughter discovered puddles for the first time. At first she was tentative, one hand, then the other; followed by both her feet. Her shoes will dry, eventually, and her clothes will be fine after a good washing. Watching my daughter sit and splash in the puddles (camera in hand, of course), I was totally and utterly in love.

    ReplyDelete
