BLOG GIVEAWAY!

It's the Sew Mama Sew blog giveaway! where sewing blogs all over blogdom are giving away something! I'm so excited to participate this year because this is my first blog giveaway. So, here are the goods.


I have a pair of New-Mommy Warming Slippers (made with Amy Butler fabric) and new-Baby Booties. The booties should fit 6-12months and the slippers fit up to size 8. The mommy warming slippers are something new I'm making. The bottom of the slippers have pockets full of rice. So, just pop these babies in the micro and you've got some soft warming slippers.

It's kind of hard to see, but here's a picture of the warming pockets. If you're not the lucky winner, then make sure to come back after the contest when I hope to have up a tutorial for the warming slippers. I'll also be throwing in a few random sewing supplies...maybe some buttons or fat eighths. I haven't decided yet!

So, here's the yada yada:
1. Leave a comment telling me the kinds of things you enjoy seeing on the sewing blogs you visit or what you would do with the slippers if you won.
2. Facebook, blog or twitter about my giveaway and then come back and leave another comment telling me that you did so.

I would love for you to bookmark or follow me, but I won't make you do so in order to enter. :-)

This gives you up to TWO entries. Comments are open through December 6th and the winner will be chosen with a random number generator. Your item will be shipped no later than December 12th and I can't mail internationally (sorry). I will also tag your items with one of my boutique tags so that you can give them as a gift if you wish. Please make sure that you leave your email address in your comment or make sure that the comment links back to your blog. If I don't hear from you by the 12th then I will choose another winner.

One last thing is that the Mommy Warming Slippers pictured may not actually be the ones you receive, but they will be equally as cute! So, enter your little heart out and make sure to head back over to Sew Mama Sew to enter some other great giveaways!

  5. I JUST told my husband that I wanted a new pair of slippers for Christmas. We are moving from FL, where flip flops work all year long, to NC, where it is chilly. I want slippers to wear indoors, and the warming pockets of rice are an amazing addition. You are SO clever.

    ReplyDelete
  7. How cute!!!! My SIL just had a baby and her feet are always cold so this would be perfect for her and my nephew. What I love to see in blogs is new things (like your slippers) and tutorials on how to make things.

    ReplyDelete
  8. OOOh I just love the warming booties. I have a 5 month old daughter and a 4 year old son. We just moved back to NY after living 3 years in SC. I am freezing all the time since it is so cold here and these slippers would be perfect for me!! So creative!!

  9. You had me at warming! I have osteo arthritis and these would be awesome this winter when I slipped into cold sheets!

  10. Ohhhhh - those slippers are too small for me, and the baby booties too small for my daughter -- but I have a pregnant friend who would LOVE them.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi! I love reading sewing blogs with the tutorials for refashioning current clothing I already own. I'd put the slippers to good use as I'm currently 5 months pregnant! I heart Amy Butler fabric so much! I'm going to add you to my Google reader right now. Happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete

  24. I like seeing pictures of other people's quilts, it gives me inspiration. I especially like if the quilts are colorful, scrappy or a little bit modern.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great idea with the warming slippers! With my poor circulation, these should be a boon to my cold feet this winter! Is it weird walking on rice though? Would like to try. And a pair for the newest grandbaby too...too cute!
    I like to see quick gift ideas and twists to the traditional. I love the eye candy which is sure to inspire!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the warming booties!! I drive my husband crazy with my cold feet here in Micigan! These would be perfect! I am 'new' to sewing and would love to see a tutorial for them if I don't win! Thank you so much! Anna bonnema@charter.net

    ReplyDelete
  27. These are really cute! I have a SIL that is expecting a little girl after 2 boys. These would be a great gift because she is on her feet a lot, the warming aspect would be great for her. I also have several friends that are pregnant. I love sites that have step-by-step istructions as well as pictures(since I am loosing my sight) to help me.
    Thanks

  28. I'm now following, but I'm wondering if you have an etsy shop or something where you sell these slippers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, I never thought to add those heating pockets to slippers! Genius! I love to see tutorials for ways to use up scraps and little bits of fabric, and also patterns and tutorials that use charm squares and jelly rolls!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very cool booties! I like to read blogs to find new ideas for sewing for children and finding free patterns/tutorials. Thanks for the giveaway! alusco@centurytel.net

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm following you :) and can't wait to visit again, I love to see anything on sewing blog, I'm very new to the craft!

    ReplyDelete
  32. OH Those slippers are a dream! I am never without my slippers on and to have them warm my toes..even better!

    I'd love to follow a tutorial on how you made those darling baby booties.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love those warming slippers. If I don't win them I'm going to make a pair. I always enjoy tutorials on blogs but I really just like reading about people's lives and what they sew for those around them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a cool idea!!! Now I have to go figure out how to make them--my husband may need some inserts for his felted wool slippers! So yes, please on the tutorial! This has been such fun--and I'm not going to consider it a waste of six hours(so far) but research for future projects!! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  35. So cute! I love tutorials on sewing blogs - and stash pictures! lots of stash pictures!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My sister just had a baby and I would give this beautiful gift to her.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great giveaway! The idea of adding rice to the slipers is fantastic, I can see this working well. I just lie on my heating pad now, but with these I could have a double whammy of relaxation. I look at sewing blogs for inspiration, great ideas (just like putting rice on the soles of slippers!) and I particularly enjoy the tutorials. Plus, more than often, the eyecandy of seeing beautiful things and the warming knowdledge that there are quite a few of us out there making things by hand, lovingly. The baby sleepers are way too small for my three year old, but I have a brand new two month old nephew, who would look oh so cute in those.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sewing tutorials are definitely my favorite part of the blogging world.

    And the slippers? I'd wear them of course. I'm due in April, so something warm for my tired feet would be a welcome relief.

    ReplyDelete
  39. super great giveaway. I love seeing tutorials for quilt blocks, pillows and wreaths. well, those are the ones i have done this year anyway...so i must like them.

    ReplyDelete

  41. Hey! Another Carolina Girl here (Lexington, SC). The slippers are darling. I'd have to give them away, though, because I'm an 8.5. However, I love all the tutorials out there on the blogs. I get so much energy and inspiration from reading what all the crafty girls blog about! You'll have to stop by my place, too, as I have a giveaway going on. -- michele

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow - I could totally use those babies! For real though, I would probably give them to my friend who is due in February. Thank you for the chance to win. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. -dez

    ReplyDelete
  62. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. I am also doing a giveaway. I have two blogs, www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com and www.artisticcreationswithtrudy.blogspot.com

    I would wear the slippers because I hate having cold feet, and they look very warm.

    My 9 year old daughter is having a giveaway on her sewing blog as well, www.sewingsister.blogspot.com

    Hope you'll stop by and have a look around and enter our giveaways.

    Have a blessed day.

  63. What a lovely giveaway! While I would want them for myself, my baby will be 1 next month, so I think I'd give the set to one of my pregnant friends (I have 5 friends expecting right now!). Oh, and on sewing blogs, I love to see lots of photos of completed projects as well as tutorials. Especially ones that can be given as gifts to boys/men - I find they are the hardest to sew for.

  69. Those mommy warming slippers are a great idea! On sewing blogs, I most love tutorials, though I must admit that I get sucked in by the pictures, so good pictures of any FO are fun to look at too. (Which reminds me that I really need to work on my picture taking skills.)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Those mommy warming slippers are fantastic. I would like to say I would give them as a gift, which I may but I really would want to keep them. I am pregnant so those baby booties would be fabulous. In a sewing blog I love to find tutorials and try them out. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Adorable! Thanks for being part of the giveaway. I'd wear the slippers all day and night! In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, we've set our thermostats to 68 for the winter. That's pretty chilly for this Texas gal! I prefer to roam the house in bare feet, but these days I'm wearing my running socks night and day. I usually only wear socks to run, so these slippers would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I was JUST chatting with a friend about how great it would be if there were some sort of slippers that you could warm up like that! My feet are always freezing... I would wear these all the time :)

    I like to see lots of photos, tutorials, links, and things like that on sewing blogs!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  88. My best friend is expecting in March and I'm already putting together a basket of essentials for her. So far, all the items are expressly for the baby - this would be the perfect thing for HER. Thanks for sharing!

  94. I love the slippers. They would be perfect for my own sweet little bundle, and the ones in my size would be perfect as I pace around the house all night with my sweet bundle.
    I love to see free tutorials and ideas to get me inspired to create. And I love step by step instructions, especially with pictures. I learn visually so reading a bunch of words doesn't always help.

    ReplyDelete
  95. i would love the slippers to wear here in my new house... that we just found out has no insulation!! :) i also love the tutorials, and all the inspiration out there.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I would love a chance to win your slipper. My feet are always cold!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love reading sewing blogs for the ideas. tutorials are the best things ever! Saves time from having to figure it out yourself or from going to the library, trying to find a book that shows it. plus they are fun and inspirational.

    As for the slippers I would put them on my feet! and then wear them! I am about to have baby #2 and could use a nice pair of warm slippers!

  102. Such a great idea on the mommy slippers! They would probably be too small for me, but Grammy's been working pretty hard too since my little guy arrived, so she'd get them.

    I love seeing lots of great pictures of things the blogger has made. It's such great inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  103. greenville? wow, that is where my husband and I are thinking about retiring. was there in Oct and had dinner at Smoke on the Water and walked up and down the street looking at the shops. My feet are too large for the momma booties, and my grandson has probably outgrown the baby ones, but glad to find you anyway!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. How awesome! I actually played with the idea of microwavable slippers several years ago, but never got around to finishing it. I was going to use two layers of cheap white socks (women's size on the inside, men's size on the outside). The whole the thing was a disaster. But yours are functional AND adorable!

    As much as I would love to keep these for myself I think I would have to give them to my mother. She recently moved to a colder climate from southern California. And even there she heated up her warming bean bag several times each night to keep herself toasty. Her husband even bought her a mini microwave to keep next to her bed so she wouldn't have to go downstairs in the middle of the night!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Oh, those slippers sound so cozy and comfortable! (As I sit here with cold toes...) What would I do with them? I would wear them all the time. We just went shoeless in our house, and are thinking we need to invest in some slippers if we're going to make it through this winter without frostbitten feet! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  106. Those are so cute! I would love to win them! I always look at other sewing blogs to see what everyone else is making. It's my way to brainstorm, find easier ways to do things and find out how to make some of the cool things everyone is making.
