make it sew modern: giveaway [closed]

6.18.2012


Hmm, where to start?  If you're looking for something genuine in blogland, you can be sure that genuine is what you'll get with Vanessa.


She's one of the very few bloggers I've meet in real life, twice no less!  She truly amazes me.  Her creativity truly comes from within.  It's really refreshing to be around her and hear her stories.  We had a blast (okay, maybe it was just me) putting on binding on her's daughter's quilt.  She was so funny, she's not one to follow someone else's rules -- she makes her own.  Sorry if this sounds sucky uppy or whatnot, it's really what I realized about her after we last met, and that's really cool.  So this is her book, and I feel really honored to be able to give away a signed copy of it right here, today.


Make it Sew Modern has a ton of great projects that you can make your own.  If I had my choice, I would have made this lovely pleated pillow, I know the magic of a good pillow.  Do you?


To enter:

  • one winner will be chosen
  • Just leave a comment! It would be fun to hear if you have any fun plans for the summer!  One entry per person.  Please leave your email address in your comment. You can leave it in a format like this if you wish: anna [at] gmail [dot] com, it's up to you though, if you have your email listed in your blogger profile, that works too!.
  • Open to US entries only please!
  • Giveaway ends Wednesday, June 20th at 10pm (central time).

  2. It looks like a really cool book, I have been planning on buying it but am waiting to see if I get it for my birthday. It is fun to hear your persepective on what she is like in person. We plan on camping next week but don't really have any big vacation plans. I kind of like it that way :). Thank you for the giveaway! Andrea2207@ yahoo.com

  15. I've followed Vanessa for some time and love her designs and ideas. What a great giveaway. If I don't win I'll have to buy it. Love the pleated pillow. I was just looking at my living room and realized all the things that made my living room look mismatched were gone so don't need to paint - I just need some pillows and maybe a wall hanging to put it all together.

  157. I love the bag on the cover, so that would probaly be my first project from the book. We live on a farm and have about 65 mama cows and 4 bulls, not sure how many calves right now. the number changes daily. So I will be either in the hay field or the barn by day and my sewing machine at night! hope i win!! hehe

We're excited and looking forward to it although it will not be any sort of vacation. Im looking forward to finding some local artisans and seeing how they "create their goods" so to speak.

  168. We're having a staycation this summer. I'm looking forward to taking care of some house projects and just relaxing! We did our family traveling in March and it feels so great to not have big summer plans for a change. I might even do some hand stitching in the garden - something I didn't do even once last year. Thanks for the giveaway!

Three kids 6 and under- we've got swim lessons, homeschool summer school lesson plans, two quilts to finish, a toddler to potty train, a giant garden to tend and harvest, and lots and LOTS of fun to be had. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  182. This looks like a fun book! I have lots of summer plans. We're heading out of state for a wedding, so we're making a vacation of it, too. And I'm busy creating a big girl room for my daughter so we can kick her out of the nursery before the new baby gets here.

    And I love crafts so this book looks like a lot of fun.

  190. I love Vanessa (although I've never got to meet her) for exactly the same reasons. She comes across as so honestly herself and so kind. This summer my 8-yr-old is playing all-star softball and my husband is one of the coaches, so we're spending most of the summer at practice and tournaments. But I don't mind because she loves it!

    ReplyDelete
  191. That looks like a beautiful book!

  192. This looks like a fun book! I have several projects in mind for summer sewing but haven't started any--I hope the summer doesn't get away from me.

  193. What a great giveaway! Right now I am taking an online college class with a required bus trip to NY tomorrow to see the Blue Man group. Then in Julyn we are heading south to Myrtle Beach for our annual family reunion. Most of the family will be roughing it at a KOA campsite in cabins. Since I teach the summers are filled with lots of relaxing, sewing, and reading!

  196. This is a great book. Hope I can get a copy of it. This summer my sister is having a baby so that will take up a lot of my time. I have to be the aunt that spoils the child rotten and then hands them back to mom :)

  197. I would love to get my hands on this book! I got a new sewing machine last month and then I had a baby 4 days later so I'm dying to really get in there and use it. As for plans for the summer, I'm thinking I'll just continue to adjust to having 4 kids :)

  198. Oooh. I have lots of summer project aspirations but I suspect a great many of them will be derailed by the imminent arrival of baby #2. Nonetheless, I hope to at least make a baby blanket or two, and maybe some plush toys.
