With the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to showcase some quick and easy gift ideas you can give to friends, neighbors, co-workers, and oh yes…even your family! Though I have been sharing a lot of free tutorials they also aren’t quite the same as actual patterns. SO I have partnered up with www.YouCanMakeThis.com to offer you a chance to enter to win some of their most popular eBooks for the whole family and learn some fun new techniques, tips, and ideas not only for the people on your list, but also creative ways to decorate your home!
You Can Make This has created a free download for some fun gift tags. Each of them coordinate with ideas found as part of the DIY Gift Giving Series videos that can be found at www.youcanmakethis.com/blog , as well as designs and patterns found at www.SWAKembroidery.com and www.YouCanMakeThis.com.
So in honor of a handmade holiday & my 600,000th blog hit in less then the 2 years that I have been doing this blog I am having a great giveaway! www.YouCanMakeThis.com gave me an awesome pattern bundle to give away to not just one, but TWO of my lucky readers :).
The giveaway bundle includes instructions for making Personalized Name Pillows, Peasant Tops/Dresses, and Easy Fit Pants including both patterns sized for (6m – 12) and (Teen/Adult). Between all of those, items can be made for both boys, girls, men and women. All 3 of the clothing patterns are by CarlaC who makes some of the best eBooks I have used! Each pattern bundle that is being given away retails for $36.80.
