Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day!

Bettina



Today is Sew Mama Sew's Give Away Day and I am participating. I will be giving away a pattern and kit for one of my matryoshka dolls. There are three to choose from and you get to decide which one you prefer! The kit includes the pattern, instructions, felt and embroidery floss, enough to complete one doll.
To enter, leave a comment after this post (if you would like to follow me I will enter your name twice!) and let me know which kit you would like. Also leave a way for me to contact you if you are the lucky winner. You must enter anytime between now and midnight central time Wednesday May 25th. The winner will be chosen randomly. To see more blogs participating go to Sew Mama Sew. Good luck and have fun!

Susan, these dolls are so colorful. I love seeing the things you've made. Really liked the valentine hearts, too! If I were selected I would like the pink doll (Anya, I believe.) Hope to see you this summer. (Denise Jones Floyd)

Ruth said...

Bettina or Anya would definitely do.
It's so cool, such a coincidence. If you check my blog you'll see that I'm putting together a project called "Babushka-creative dolls" (that's how we call these in Greece.
Fingers crossed tightly
