Giveaway Day!

Welcome to Giveaway Day! Hosted by Sew Mama Sew! each year, this event celebrates those of us who create! Anyone with a blog is welcome to join in, and give away an item for crafting (specifically related to sewing), or a handmade item. Today I'm giving away two items!



The first item is for that special little kiddo in your life. My daughter loves to cook in her kitchen and feed us and her babies her creations. She was always asking me for napkins and placemats for her little table, so I decided to make her some! And now you can win a set!



This is a set of four placemats and four napkins. They are sized small for baby doll and toddler use! :) The placemats measure 9x12" and the napkins are 4x8".  They are made of two layers of cotton quilting fabric and feature serged edges for durability! The fabric is an adorable vintage-look fabric from Debbie Mumm and features stuffed toy animals.

To win, please leave me a comment telling me your favorite handmade item to give to a child! Please leave your email address in your comment to make sure I can contact you! Thanks for stopping by! Giveaway closes at 5pm PST May 25. I'll update this post with the winner by Sunday May 27!


***UPDATED*** The winner is SandyandCosmo! Please email me your address and I'll send your gift out! Thanks to everyone for stopping by!


If you didn't win you can purchase your own set in my etsy store

*Please note, that the table, chairs, dolls and tea set are not included in the giveaway!*

  35. My daughter would love this!! She has tea parties almost every day :)

    I usually give clothes, but that isn't so fun. A few days ago, in the new book Zakka Style, I found a pattern for a little bag with felt cookies inside and sweet embroidery on the outside. That may become my new go-to gift.
