My favorite sewing notions, a giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to comment #67, Kara. Check your inbox for an email from us! Thank you to all who entered. xoxo

For a little bit now I’ve been gathering a few of my favorite sewing notions in anticipation of creating a giveaway bundle. I know what you’re thinking — yes, sewing notions really are that exciting to me :) Over the summer T-fal contacted me about one of their products, the Ultraglide iron. It arrived at our apartment at a perfect time as my current iron needing to be replaced. Don’t laugh at me when I tell you this: I really do enjoy ironing. It’s one of those repetitive, relaxing tasks and the fact that I can see the wrinkles in the fabric disappear before my eyes? Well, let’s just say it settles my need for instantaneous results.


I’ve gathered seven of my favorite notions for a giveaway, and since nearly my entire home state (hello, Michigan) is currently experiencing dreadful negative degree windchills I thought it would be fun to host a giveaway? I mean, what else is there to do besides sew and craft when you’re stuck inside from too much snow? ;)

Let’s talk some more about this iron. I’ve been using it for a few months now and it’s already surpassed all of my ironing daydreams — including being able to use tap water for steaming and it’s super smooth ceramic soleplate. It’s also nonstick! Who knew I could go on & on about an iron like this? But really, it’s a great iron. Even Target knows it and carries it.


Also included in the giveaway:  1.) one ironing board cover c/o Sew Caroline (fits a standard board), 2.) three yards of strawberry pink ball fringe, 3.) three spools of Dual Duty Coats & Clark cotton thread c/o Coats & Clark, 4.) two yards of 100% cotton fabric (1 yard of each design), 5.) six buttons (2 of each design shown), 6.) twenty YKK zippers (various sizes of vanilla, pink & strawberry colors) and lastly a T-fal Ultraglide iron c/o T-fal (not shown in above photo).


Caroline of Sew Caroline made me a custom ironing board cover in a fun pink/red pattern. I seriously love it! My ironing board is extra wide (I told you I love to iron) but that didn’t stop her — this girl can sew! Caroline also has sewing tutorials on her blog, you must pay her a visit and look at all the beautiful clothes she’s sewn for herself. Go on ;) click over!

    My best friend is expecting a baby girl so I have a lot of things I want to make for her. I especially want to make one of the shopping cart covers that you put in the seat area to keep baby from sucking/chewing/touching the dirty cart. Ick. I wish they would have been around when my kids were cart size.

    Our first grand child (gdaughter =} ) just turned one year old at Christmas and started walking! I’ve been doing some cute baby items for her but am excited to be making her dresses and other cute clothes now that she’s walking. Would love to win your giveaway, not to mention I’m using my MILs iron from the Ice Age (remember the really heavy ones with the cloth chord ?!) Sad but true =/

    I’m expecting a little girl in April. I will be making her bedding and room decor in these colours. I was also going to try making a diaper bag, these zippers would come in handy. :)
