Tie Dye Diva Easy Peasant and Storybook Pinafore Sewalong - Giveaway information


Did you read yesterday's post about the sewalong I am hosting?  For the next two weeks, I will be leading you in how to sew the Tie Dye Diva Easy Peasant and Storybook Pinafore. Yesterday was information day so please read the post to learn about what we will be doing, get sale information on the patterns, and more. 

Today is prize information day! Yes, there will be prizes for this sewalong. This is my first time hosting a giveaway and I jumped in the deep end and got sponsors to give us prizes. These prizes come from trusted stores I know and love so I hope you are excited about them!

First, I will show you the prizes and then I will tell you how you can win them.  Everyone who participates in the sewalong is eligible for all the prizes. All you have to do is share your finished pinafore, peasant, or both.  

(these prizes are equal in value!)

 First Prize
Three yards of Blend Fabrics Maisie line, one yard of each fabric seen above.  Maisie was designed by Maude Asbury and is luxurious quilting cotton.

 Second Prize


 A $25 gift certificate from Banberry Place Fabrics and a selection of fold over elastic (FOE) from Elastic by the yard

Third Prize

A $25 gift certificate for Pink Chalk Fabrics and three sets of buttons from Lyanwood.

These are all fabulous prizes!  Here is how you can win.  UPDATED!

1. Share your TDD peasants and pinafores here, in the linky party, or you can share on the Tie Dye Diva Facebook page. That sharing earns you one entry.

2. Visiting all five stores above and commenting ON THIS BLOG POST about one item from each store that you like the most. That earns you another entry. You get one entry per comment, per store.

6.  On Monday morning June 30th, I will use the random number generator to choose the three winners! You can only win one prize each, even if you enter twice.  That's fair!  

Does that all make sense? I want to make these a fun sewalong and I want you to visit the sponsor's but I don't want to bog this down with liking pages or tweeting or anything else that really doesn't relate.  

So, sewalong and enjoy!  Please send me questions here or on Facebook!


  1. Hi Kathy, I love to join the sewalong and this is going to be my first time..do you accept international participants? thanks..

  2. For a knit fabric - this is very pretty and I could see using this to make something special http://www.banberryplace.com/index.php...
    I've never used elastic this way- but it looks so cute, I'd love to try it. https://www.etsy.com/.../ladybugs-print-fold-over-elastic...
    I also have never used covered buttons, but there is always time to give it a try - these are cute... http://www.pinkchalkfabrics.com/index.php...
    I have someone in mind that I would have to create an outfit just because of these buttons.. https://www.etsy.com/.../dragonscale-antique-silver-shank...
    I like this fabric - it would make a cute apron - male or female! http://www.blendfabrics.com/gallery/ribs-bibs
