I Have Winners!!!!!!

I had such a great time this week with the Sew Mama Sew giveaway! I am sorry I couldn't reply to each of you but I just couldn't keep up but be assured I read them all  and enjoyed each and every one. Now for the fun! The winners.

First the winner of the Fabric Paper dolls is Lori of Ohio .  She had such a nice comment: Oh my Grandgirlie would be sooooo delighted to have these! They are Adorable! Yep...played with paper dolls alot when I was little...had a bunch too! Remember my Aunt used to cut the Betsy McCall's from her magazines too.

Since I had such a nice response to the Fabric Gift bag giveaway, I decided to give away a second set of bags.

The first winner is Anna of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Her winning comment was: We use reusable bags all the time- my mother uses fabric bags for our Christmas stockings now. These bags look great and Would be a perfect gift for my mom as our family keeps growing larger these days.
Thanks for participating in the blog hop.

The second winner of a set of Fabric Gift bags is Megan of California. Her comment was :
I use wrapping paper, but only because it's easiest. I've actually been using the same two (extra large!) rolls of reversible wrapping paper for about 10 years. Yay Costco! However, I love making reusable stuff, so I do have a couple of reusable gift bags... I'd love to add more to my collection though!

Again I want to thank everyone who dropped by and visited. Since I am almost to 100 followers, maybe another giveaway will be happening soon! Congratulations to the three winners!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway 2!!!!!!

I love the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day(Week) so much that I decided to have two giveaways this December! I am so glad that they moved the date forward so that Christmas giveaways can be included this year. I have a set of fabric Christmas gift bags for a giveaway. There are many several sizes included so you can wrap all kinds of gifts!
The is lots of glitter on these bags even though it is hard to see.

Santa, gingerbread men, and a lovely Christmas village adorn these bags.

Here is a close up of two of the glittery bags so that you can tell they are glittery!

Here is a close up of the village on the small bag.

Each bag has an attached ribbon so that you can tie everything up with a bow! The best thing about these bags is that they are reusable! No more paper and ribbon to throw away! Just put the bags away til next year and then refill them!!  I will include some name tags to go on the ribbon so you will be ready to wrap as soon as you receive the bags!

Just leave a comment about your favorite wrapping technique(bet you can guess mine!) to win the set of 8 bags. For a second chance become a follower! Be sure to post a second comment so I know! I will ship internationally.

Don't forget to check out all the other great giveaways from Sew Mama Sew. The giveaways start on Monday December 3rd and ends Friday December 7th.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!!!! Part 1

Finally it is here! The Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.....or week actually! My first giveaway is some cute little "paper dolls". Well, they are really fabric dolls but you know what I mean! I got the fabric last Christmas so that I could make them up for my granddaughter and this giveaway! They are so much fun to make...a little tedious but fun! The dolls have a stiff interfacing to make them stand up. The clothes are backed with flannel so that they stick to the dolls. I used to love playing with paper dolls and I hope that little girls still love them!

Here is the doll with one outfit.

Three of the girls all dressed up and ready to go!

Don't leave me behind!
As you can see, I have embellished the outfits with all kind of bling!You do know that diamonds are a girl's best friend...along with emeralds and rubies!!!! (Remember that I have added the stick on gems if you have a small child under 3.)

If you would like to win a set of these dolls for that special little girl, just leave me a comment. Any comment will do but if you have a fond memory of playing with paper dolls that would be especially fun! ( My favorite paper dolls was an Elizabeth Taylor set. We played and played with her. Of course back then she was very young and very slender with loads of fancy Hollywood clothes!) For a second entry, become a follower. Be sure to leave a second comment telling me so. I will ship internationally.

Thanks for stopping in and visiting and don't forget to visit all the other fantastic sites on Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  The Giveaway starts on Monday December 3rd and ends on Friday December 7th.
