It's My Birthday-- It's Giveaway Time! *CLOSED*

--This giveaway is now done and closed--

July is my birthday month!!  So it's time for presents... for you guys!!!!  Yep, a good ole fashioned giveaway, no strings attached.  I'm allowing myself to get a few new sewing goodies in the coming weeks so I wanted to review my stash of patterns and purge a few things to make way.  There may be a trip to Fabric Mart, too... I think it will be officially an annual post-birthday event for me now in August (I went last year with some birthday cash in hand and got a boatload of stuff.)



The Giveaway Rules

** Okay, sewing friends, this will be open to anyone in the U.S. as shipping can be astronomical otherwise**

1) Browse the patterns, magazines and book below
2) Tell me in a comment what you want-- one thing or all the things-- plus an e-mail address so I can contact you if you're a winner.
3) I will randomly choose a comment and reward you all your choices.
4) I will keep choosing until all the stuff is claimed.
5) I will then contact the winner(s) and mail it all away.
6) I will then eat loads of cake and plan for my new sewing escapades. Happy Birthday to me!

The giveaway closes at the end of the day on Saturday, July 26, 2014 (EST). 
 I'll announce the winner(s) on Sunday, July 27, 2014.  



I won this BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern book last year from another blog giveaway.  I don't need it.  It's never been used beyond some light browsing.  It's in new condition.  Take it.


I got a wildly huge pile of pattern magazines from my lovely neighbor Renee a while back, these are just a just a few from that pile I'm gonna part with.  Here we have two La Mia Boutiques in Italian (above). The one on the left is the October 2007 edition, the other on the right is August 2008.  Both have never been used, just looked at.


Above are two more La Mia Boutique sewing pattern magazines... in Russian!  The left one is the 08/10 edition and the right one is the 11/10 edition.  It's all in Russian... I have absolutely zero knowledge of the language and it blows my mind trying to figure out the directions. Take them.


The above patterns: 
McCall's 6512 (sizes 12-16)
McCall's 6282 (sizes 8-14)
Simplicity 1876 (sizes 12-20)
Colette Patterns 1013 (sizes 0-18)


The pattern directly above here:
Simplicity 1806 (size 8-16) View B was cut in 14
Simplicity 0350 (size 4-18) View B was cut in 14
Simplicity 2184 (sizes 6-14) 
Burda 7117 (sizes 20 1/2-23 3/4" head circumference) View A was cut in 22 3/4"




And a couple vintage ones here:
McCall's 7148 (size 12)
Vogue 7119 (sizes 14-18)
I don't think either are cut.

So pick and choose or tell me you want it all. And then wish me a happy birthday and send me loads of gifts.  Any questions? Just ask.  

Remember: The giveaway closes at the end of the day on Saturday, July 26, 2014 (EST). 
 I'll announce the winner(s) on Sunday, July 27, 2014.  

Check out this pile of patterns I have for you!

P.S. Yes, there is another magazine with a blue letter M on the cover peaking out in the top photo... I made the mistake of tucking that in the pile...it's NOT in the giveaway (it's my only Modellina, you ain't getting that.)

  4. I'd love that Colette pattern, as I've never tried one of theirs. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try a pattern from a magazine (in a language foreign to me, at that!) but browsing them would be fun! Sending happy birthday wishes to you! An in person trip to Fabric Mart sounds like the perfect birthday gift!
