giveaway day may 6th: win measuring tape growth chart fabric!

Update: winners announced! Click here!


Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day has inspired me to give away 2 pieces of my measuring tape fabric to  blog readers! Want to win one? Just add a comment below letting me know one other blog post you've liked on my blog -OR- add a comment below letting me know one way you feel you've really measured up to a challenge this week. Deadline is midnight, PST May 10th 2013.



Two lucky winners will each walk away with enough measuring tape fabric to make his or her own measuring tape growth chart. Note: this is not a finished product, but the fabric you can use to make your own. With free shipping, this is a $14 value.

Sorry; free U.S. shipping only. Others can buy the fabric in my Etsy Shop or on my Spoonflower page.



Winners will be announced on May 12th, and notified by e-mail if possible (I'll click the name by your comment, and follow any e-mail link available; otherwise, just check back on the 12th to see if you've won). After five days, non-responsive winners will miss out, and new winners will be selected from the pool of entrants.



Want to know how to put one of these growth charts together? I did an earlier blog with step-by-step instructions.


Okay! Get to entering! Thanks for reading, and good luck!

I really like you zodiac embroidery creation. The stitching was pretty and I think it is something that I could accomplish as a beginner. It would make a great baby shower gift I think!

This is so cute!! My nephew is 3 years old and growing like a weed, so this would be such a practical and stylish addition to his room!

Don't think my first comment worked. I wanted to enter your giveaway because I have a 3 year old nephew who is growing like a weed and this would make a practical and stylish addition to his room! Thanks for the giveaway. :)

I haven't measured up at all. No sewing for me!

laurelar said...

Oh I love this! It would be great to make for my son's nursery.

I have finally started machine quilting my first full size quilt with my walking foot! (how I measured up) Less than perfect, but exciting.

I think I measured up to the challenge of my 2-year-olds tantrums. I didn't yell or cry or anything. :)

I like the post on freezer paper art on a Tshirt. Can't wait to try that craft with my 5 yr old!!

Mary Ann said...

I finished a bucket hat today. A finish feels good!

KRubin said...

This is perfect timing! My best friend just found out that she is expecting a little girl and will begin working on the nursery soon! I think it would make a great addition.

This may be cheating, but I'm really proud of myself! Last week, I completed my first year of graduate school!

Mandinga said...

Wow! This is so cute!

sharon aguilar said...

I measured up to the challenge of dealing with 2 crying babies. Gods grace was what helped hold it together :)

Jill R. said...

I like your freezer paper stencil post. Very detailed design, well done!

FabricDonkey said...

I feel like I've really measured up this week because I have put my energy toward my family by spending extra time with the kids, staying on top of cleaning, and tackling Disneyland. That, in and of itself, is quite a challenge. ;) Thank you for the cool giveaway!

Stephanie @ Quarter Incher said...

My blog skyrocketed this week so it was a challenge keeping up with it and all the comments!

debbiekl said...

Love your kitchen counter remodel! I'm in the process of building new kitchen cabinets - fun!

Madeleine said...

So cute! It's a challenge to live life in happiness with all the uncertainty around.

Samantha said...

Cool giveaway. I like your planter/garden pinterest post, since I'm dealing with such a small gardening space right now.

Sewing Mom said...

Well, I didn't square my HST's this week and I didn't measure up at all....so I had to tear my block apart and square. Then, I measured up! Thanks for a chance to win.

Kendra said...

I've been wanting to make a growth chart! This is perfect! I finally set aside some time to sew this week which was a challenge for me. Of course, my house is a wreck now!!

Meg said...

I love this idea!!!

I love this! Thanks for the chance to win!

Cecilia said...

This week I have been feeling like a total failure :( but I know it's just the pressure of finals, homeschooling and health issues so I've been trying to remind myself that my children are happy and healthy, and no sparkling home can give you that. So I guess what I am trying to say is: I am a good mom, I think I've measured up :)

sharpie said...

Thank you! I somehow managed to get a quilt top pieced lickety-split ;)

MissEnota aka Kristin S. said...

Hello from Minnesota! Your blog is a mix of tons of my interests (including thrifting) so I'm now following you. :) My favorite past post is the freezer paper stencil for dishtowels.

As for the giveaway; I'm no longer growing but I absolutely love rulers (and maps and scales...) and I think it would be lovely all made up and hanging at my house. Great idea!

Sewbig said...

I love the measuring tape and think it would be a great baby gift especially for those baby gifts that I have yet to finish and the "baby" is no longer a newborn. I will not confess how overdue the gifts are.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow what a great giveaway! I met a challenge this week when I was re-introduced to a family member I have not seen since I was 12 years old. It was a bit nerve wracking, but we made it,and even met the rest of the family. My sweet hubby cooked a wonderful brisket for all of us, and we enjoyed a very nice meal together.

Sewbig said...

I enjoyed your posts on the yard and thrift stores. I can relate to the temptation and regret you experience when checking out finds in the store.

Chris S said...

Finishing up my first applique and cirle quilt!

I love this fabric! My husband returned back to work after a week off with our newborns. This was the first week by myself and my 5 kids on 6 years. I made it!

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

The freezer stencil pretzel shirtis so cute! I bought fabric crayons forever ago but forgot about them when I had my new baby. I bet my preschooler would love to make a shirt like that!

Jenny said...

I have to say

DOLL FACED PILLOW. I wish I could say WTH??? But really and truly, I have an aunt who used to make that stuff for me when I was a little girl.

I like your blog and this tape measure fabric is wonderful!! Thank you so much for the chance.

Stephanie Rodriguez said...

I've measured up this past week because my 4 year old smashed my lil 1 year old baby boys finger in the door really bad and I didn't pass out. It was bleeding and he was crying so very bad and I really freaked out but I got a hold of myself and mommy fixed him.
