Giveaway Day!

Welcome, visitors from Sew, Mama, Sew!  This is my first giveaway ever and I'm so excited to be participating!  

I decided to clean out my pattern stash and send some of them off to better homes where they'll hopefully be put to good use!  To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me which group you like better, A or B.  Be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win!  I will ship internationally.  The giveaway will close at 12pm EST on May 25th.  There are three patterns in each category and I tried to group them by size.  All patterns are complete with all pattern pieces and directions, but some of the envelopes are a little worse for wear.  

Group A:

McCall's 8042, bust 30.5, 1982.  I actually made these shorts and graded the pattern up because I'm definitely not a size 6.  Don't worry, I traced the pattern first!

Simplicity 6459, bust 35, 1966.  I also made this pattern before and I think it turned out great.  It was super quick!

Butterick 5471, bust 31.5.  Again, I think this would be pretty easy to grade up if you wanted to.

Group B:

McCall's 4060, bust 47, 1974.  I think this would be so cute made up in a striped stretch knit!

McCall's 3892, also bust 47,1973.  I love view A!

Anne Adams 9136, size 44, 1976.

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

Am I the last person on Earth to hear about Pinterest?  When I first heard about it I wasn't very intrigued, but I signed up to get an invitation to join anyways.  I created my account today and I'm completely hooked!  It's a great way to catalogue inspiration pictures.  The cool thing about it is that when you sign up they give you a link to put on your "favorites" toolbar.  Whenever you see an image you want to "collect" on a website, just click the "Pin it" button!  Then you choose which board to pin it to.  I have a board for fabric, clothing, house stuff, and a few more.  It also automatically gives credit to the source and links to it.  I swear, it's the coolest thing ever!

You can only join if you have an invitation or you can request one from the website, which takes a few days.  If you'd like an invitation, just give me your email address and I'll send one your way!  Pinterest is super user-friendly and very addictive!

Here are some of my favorite images that other people have posted today:

Once again, if you'd like an invitation just leave me your email!
