It’s giveaway day! Yay!

As some of you are likely to already know, Sew Mama Sew has an annual (or twice-annual, I think it actually is no?) Giveaway Day, where a whole bunch of people can host giveaways and link them to their lists. Basically, it’s a rather fun way to connect with a bunch of people, find new blogs to follow, and give something back to the sewing community. (I’ve found new-to-me blogs to follow from it in the past, which is always nice!)


Ive taken part in it a couple of times before, and always really enjoyed it. And it’s here again, starting today! Woot! (Even though it’s called ‘Giveaway Day’, it actually runs all week.)

This time ’round, I’m going to give away a Muse PDF pattern to three different people. Just coz I can.

Rather good timing too – the newest Muse pattern got released yesterday. The Natalie dress and top, made in knit fabric and with a touch of 1940’s elegance to it, it could be rather perfect for wearing over the eating-far-too-much time of year. (Plus, it only takes an afternoon to sew up – win!) (Speaking of which – you can get 15% off the Natalie pattern between now and 14 December with the code ‘NATALIE’.)

So, want to be in to win? Just comment on this post and tell me – which Muse pattern would you choose, and why?

Gillian dress from Muse Patterns

And if you’re a follower of my blog, you get a second entry too – just leave another comment and let me know you follow, since I reckon you should have a better chance at winning and all that.

Natalie dress from Muse Patterns

The giveaway closes at 5pm on 12 December (PST), after which I’ll draw the three winners via random number generator (gotta love that thing!) and send you your pattern. (Side note: please make sure there’s some way for me to find your email address easily when you comment – either linked to your name, or leave it in the comment. Coz if I can’t get hold of you, you can’t win I’m afraid to say.)
