Giveaway Numero Uno!

givweek1
Are you excited? I am! I am also a little nervous so we should just do this!

Combination Prize


The first giveaway is a three piece set I made a couple weeks ago. I had opened up my box of clothing cast-offs and there were two grey and white pant leg bottoms my mom had kindly donated to my cause. I was instantly inspired to make a folding clutch. (Pant legs make the perfect folding clutches.) I rooted through my stash and found some really nice grey lining fabric and when it came time to add the button I was inspired by some beautiful vintage red ones I had collected on a recent thrifting trip.

Singed Rose Pin
Red Zippered Change PurseRed Button Clutch

I love the colour combination here. the red button, red zipper and red beads on the flower pin just pop against the greys and white. The pieces were all super simple to make, but I am nervous about handing them off. I am relatively new at this sewing thing and I am a little self conscious about the quality. But, having said that, I really like these pieces and I hope you do too!

To be entered in the draw for these lovely items, I require only two things. The first is be a follower. The second is comment telling me your favourite colour combination(s). That is it, easy peazy lemon squeezy!

I will draw a winner on Thursday September 9th. And on Friday I will announce a new giveaway!
Draw closed, thanks so much for playing!

I think you did an awesome job. And I think you have a terrific imagination to see the new uses for old things.

My favorite colour combo? Definitely the pink/black/white kinda punkish mélange.

I definitely follow you...I love being inspired by your creativity.

My favourite colour combos (other than the grey/red that you've sewn up) is chocolate brown and blue. Isaac's room is done up like this and I just don't get sick of it. :) -Debbie

You did awesome!! I, too, am sort of new to sewing and know how you feel, but giveaways are an awesome way to bless others! :-)Hope you pick me! My favorite colors are chocolate and blue (like the other comment) and I also have an Isaac - how funny.

These look great - especially the flower. My favorite color combo is peacock blue and red.

Well done! I really like the tip about turning pant legs into clutches, great idea. I am already a follower and my favourite colour combo is an old one, but a good one: navy and white (with cherry red shoes).

Melissa said...

I do follow you and my favorite color combination is easy. I has been blue and green for years and years.

Wendy Lou said...

So cute Melissa! I'm not so good at commenting as Google Reader is my friend :)... but I'd love to win your little clutch.

And my favorite color combination... hmm... white and pretty much anything!

I like this color combo, but lately I've been really enjoying pink and black.

Jaimie said...

These are cute! I've been a follower for awhile :). Today my favorite color combo is rust and miint. Ask me again tomorrow ;).

Jaimie said...

And by "miint," I meant "mint," of course.

I think these are very creative! I never would have imagined that they were pants in their previous life! I am enjoying your blog as well!

Kelley said...

Hello!
I love what you have done here. I think my favorite combo right now is brown& turq.

Have a super week.

Fun, Fun, Fun! This clutch reminds me of my now 18 year old who is just much cooler than her mom.

I love color combinations that include shades of Orange. Is that odd? I dunno. I think orange is often under-used by very over stated. It says "Hey Look At Me!" or "Woot! Woot! I'm orange." It's a sunset with turquoise, a tangerine in my stocking, or a flavor in summer pops.

Give me orange and any color and I'll tell you a great combination!

:)

Julie Belle said...

Very cute :) The color combo is so classic! My latest favorite color combo is using off white, robin's egg blue & a marigold color. I just LOVE how refreshing this combo is. My favs are changing all the time though so we'll see what my fav is next week :) ha!

Love it.. Love it.. Love it..

I definitely follow you ^_^

My favorite combination: yellow and denim.
