calicodaisy Giveaway Day!


.
Happy December! I missed the deadline to join Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day, so I am hosting my own and will give away TWO dress form pincushions to my blog pals. This darling design is one of my favorites, and I have it embroidered out on a little hanging pillow which can be used for simple decoration or as a hanging pincushion near your sewing machine.
.
I think it's convenient to have a pincushion hanging on my sewing room wall, so I can poke in my threaded needles and safety pins and remember where I stowed them. You'll have a choice of fabric and thread colors, as this shot cotton is all used up!
.
Let's do all the bloggy things to offer extra chances. After you've taken care of one or all of the little adventures below, be sure to leave individual comments for each task. The contest will run through December 6, 2009, with the winner announced on December 7, 2009.  (Please be sure your comment links back to your blog and/or includes your e-mail address!) 
.
1. Leave a comment here.
2. Become a follower.
3. Blog about my giveaway.   
4. Become a calicodaisy handmade Facebook Fan.
5. Heart my calicodaisy etsy shop.
.
Remember, if you can't wait to have one of these cushions as your own and/or don't win the giveaway, there are a couple listed in my calicodaisy etsy shop.
.
If you are a sewist yourself, you can just order the design embroidered out on the fabric of your choice and sew up your own gorgeous project. The dress form design measures 2.16" wide x 6.48" tall.

Monogrammed Appliqueed Pillow framed
.
If you stop by my photo gallery embroidery designs set or the appliques and sew-outs set, you'll see a number of great designs you can order worked out on fabric to use in your own projects. Check out the "Keep Calm and Sew" embroidered panel in my shop.  Order any type of monogram design, and sew up a pillow cover like the one above.  It's so easy!  Just give me an e-mail, and we can work out the details.
.
Sew-Fantastic
.
There is another giveaway going on right now. Sew Fantastic is featuring a new artist for her 12 Days of Christmas. Be sure to stop by and see who is getting chatted up and the daily prize. Jane is on today, one of my sweet blog friends.  She just got in Meadowsweet fabric to her shop, and she is giving away $15.00 gift certificates through the Sew Fantastic feature. 
.
Good luck with ALL the giveaways.  I look forward to popping around to as many as I can myself, but mostly I look forward to hearing from you this week!
