A Surprise Custom Giveaway

Ok, so a while back (about a month) I said I'd celebrate 50 followers with a giveaway and my life was too hectic at that moment. So now there is 20 more that have joined the party. :)

So here is the low down. I want to do a kid type giveaway, but I want to make it specific to boy/girl/baby. So everyone can participate and I will decide what to make based on the individual winner. If you don't have kids (or they are too big for anything handmade) then I will make a 'me' gift instead. There will be multiple items, some fabric and maybe some not.

So to be in the drawing, just leave a comment about your fav homemade kid gifts, 'me' gifts or whatever you wanna say. :) The drawing will close Friday morning and I will draw a name and post it sometime Friday. Then I will get with the winner and make a surprise gift to send. :)

***Drawing is now closed***

Til then I will be posting random stuff as usual and lookout for the Big Dog Party details.

My favorite handmade gift is my baby blanket that my great grandmother made just for me. There are no others like it that were made with so much love for me.

Hi Deanna!

I stumbled on your blog looking for ideas for a homemade heating pad and have been following ever since. My favorite homemade projects on your site are the I Spy books and all your party ideas! I also love the gift baskets you put together for people, I've stolen a few of those ideas for gifts for friends since I found you.

Thank you so much for all the creative goodies that you bring to us with each post. I think every gift that is handmade is wonderful because of the love that goes into making them. It is too hard to pick just one!

I would say anything handmade for my little one is special... I make things and I know how much time and love goes into handmade things. I always love the girly, girly things... I guess it is so much fun to see the way she reacts to things that are just for her and all girl. :)

Crayon holders are great gifts for kids! The baby legwarmers made from women's socks are great too.

Hmmm, it would be hard to pick just one. I do love the skirts you make. I LOVE LOVE the gift basket sets you put together... love that idea. Hmmm... I love all your stuff.

How fun! My favorite gift that I've made is when I can pull off a quilt. That isn't too often, though. I'm hoping to branch out into felt food, someday, but I'm so hopeless at hand sewing that my efforts so far have been quite horrible.

It's been a while now since I stumbled upon your blog and added you to "my favorite"!!
I think the skirts are super cute.. but as other said, really anything you make it great!!

SuBoo said...

I love the appliqued tees you make - everything looks so bright and happy. I think they'd look fantastic on fitted tees for adults as well :)

Kari @ Ucreate said...

I love appliques right now! I love them on anything {onesies, dish towels, tshirts, etc.}! I love all of your fun ideas Deanna, thanks for sharing!

Candice said...

Love your blog, Deanna. I've been following from BW. :) My most used handmade gift that I've received was a set of hooded bath towels, very similar to the ones you give instructions for. One of these days I'm going to try some of those myself. And I'm hoping to use some of your girly clothes instructions after #3 (dd1)comes next month. :)

all my littles are now teenagers and older, but I am becoming a grandma soon. I loved it when each of my kids got a "grandma blanket". The one made and tied by my Mom. Only one of the five were pieced, but that doesn't matter. None were hand or machine quilted.. That doesn't matter either.
I also liked to have and now like to give hooded bath towels. They last a long time!

Hailey said...

Well I made the carmel apples and the heating pads for my daughter's preschool and dance teachers this year....I'm sooo inspired by you and love checking out your blog.

This giveaway just tickles me - I would absolutely love having something made by you for my daughter to wear :)

ooo PICK ME :D

kim & co. said...

I love all your ideas that you post! Its helped me find things to make for presents :) All your differnt t-shirts for the kids are so cute!

Brenbren said...

I love the hooded bath towels! For a girl or a boy I have both!

jsunderli23 said...

I love your blog. I found you on craft gossip about a month ago and check back often. My little one is turning one on the fourth of july and I am giving the hooded towels as gifts (found a great sale at kohls for the towels) and serving the snicker salad and potato salad at the BBQ.

I really like baby blankets especially the ones made from soft flannel and aprons for me.

Thank you for sharing your ideas with us.

Lee Ann said...

I am a BW follower too although I definitely stalk you most on here now!
I love everything you make, your girls clothes are always so cute! I just wish I could make such beautiful things for my princess, but I am learning from your blog, slowly ;) I am so enjoying handmade gifts now and always pinch some of your super cute ideas, our teachers this year are getting some flowers in decorated cans! Yay great idea!

Thanks Deannax x x x

Laura said...

I would have to say that my favorite handmade gift is felt food. So cute and much better than the plastic stuff from the store. Oh, and you can't beat baby legwarmers either! Love your blog.

Misty said...

I love anything homemade! One thing I absolutely love to get is homemade cards!
