Patrones Giveaway for Sew Grateful Week!

Hello 2013!

Sew Grateful button

Debi from My Happy Sewing Place is hosting a Sew Grateful Week and I am excited to be a part of it.

I have been blogging for about a year now and I originally intended the blog to be a personal diary and creative release from the stress of my daily life. I never expected that any of my on-line ramblings would be read by anyone else.

I was surprised (even shocked) when I gained my first follower. With each new follower, I was inspired to step up my writing and provide a better product for my audience. I was also inspired to leave encouraging comments on other blogs.

I am grateful for the people who follow me and the supportive comments that I have received thus far. I am not striving for mega blog; this blog is supposed to be fun for me and not more work. I am just happy to be part of the sewing community on my own terms and timeline.

As part of Sew Grateful week, Debi has suggested that Monday, February 4th be a Giveaway day to show appreciation to the sewing community. So, I am hosting a giveaway for a Patrones magazine, summer issue 303. It is published in Spain and printed in Spanish but hopefully that just adds to the fun of sewing something from a European magazine.

I am also including Burda Style tracing carbon paper that I picked up in a recent trip to Germany last month. The tracing paper will be helpful because you have to trace the patterns from the magazine.

Here are some of my favorite styles from this issue:

Patrones-No303-dress2

Patrones-No303-dress5

Patrones-No-303-blouse-and-skirt-15-to-18

Patrones-No-303-dress-19-jacket-20

Here is a summary of the patterns in the magazine:

To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment below this post. In appreciation to all my followers, if you follow or subscribe to my blog, I will count your entry as a double entry. This giveaway is open until midnight, 23 Feb 2013, central standard time. This giveaway is open worldwide; I will ship internationally. Good luck!

    A Spanish magazine! I took AP Spanish not too long ago, and I might finally be able to use it. How exciting!
    The dresses are so pretty. If I ever work up the courage to make my own prom dress, these patterns would be perfect.
