Giveaway Day, Hurray!

Since I had a very special post this morning (giveaway there too ;), I couldn't post my giveaway for Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day until now. So, here I am...better late than never!
I was lucky enough to end up with 2 copies of S is for Stitch. I actually won one copy and then received a copy as a gift the exact same week. So instead of hurting anyone's feelings, I decided to give one copy away when a good oppurtunity arrived. Well, it has arrived! Yay!
This is a super fun stitching book for anyone, even beginners, and has some adorable projects and patterns!
To enter, comment and tell me the first thing you have ever sewn? For a bonus entry, you can follow me if you like and let me know as an additional comment. International entries welcomed!

Good luck, new and old readers!

  56. The first thing I ever sewed (or ever tried to sew) was barbie clothes - I remember trying to make a skirt by making a tube out of leftover denim and stitching an elastic into the top, but it was completely shapeless and I don't think it went over the barbie's hips, because I think I cut the tube to the size of her waist.
