It's Giveaway Day!!


Yay!! It's the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day!!
(well actually it lasts all week! Make sure you check it out!)
I just love these! Yes, the chance to win some great prizes, handmade goods, supplies, etc are all great... but finding new blogs in the process is the best reward of all, I think! 
I followed several last fall, and this spring that I continue to completely enjoy :) 
And it's no fun if you're just talking into a big black void - right?  So the more the merrier!

Today I am giving away this quilted zipper pouch. 
It's really nice and roomy for your cosmetics, or on the go sewing supplies and projects, or heck, throw a coin purse in there and use it as a clutch!



It's fully lined and quilted inside too :)

How do you win? Simple, leave me a comment telling me what you are giving to the man/men in your life this year  for Christmas? (seriously people I need ideas!!! LOL) 
If that's too much of a stumper, like it is for me, what's your favorite inspiring quote or life motto?

PLEASE make sure you have an email address attached to your entry! No reply bloggers - leave your email in the comment box like this:  janedoe(at)yahoo(dot)com 
This is sooo important! All no reply comments will not be entered!

For a second bonus entry, follow my blog :)
  Leave a second comment saying that you're a follower. 
That's it!


Giveaway is open until 8 pm on Friday December 7th. We'll draw a name using Random.org and announce the winner on Saturday. And I will email the winner :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to celebrate Giveaway Day 2012 with me, and good luck!

Entries are now closed for the giveaway!
Congratulations to Sara - Sew Distracted!!!

I love this little pouch!
This year everyone here is getting individual placemats, both men and women! My husband has long asked for a handmade tie, and he absolutely adores personalized T-shirts. His all time favourite was when I did "The Ribi of The Rings" T-shirt for him! That's a combination of his name and his favourite movie, The Lord of the Rings....

Brenda said...

great little pouch. my inspirational motto: be generous.
thanks for the chance!

Anonymous said...

I will probably make him an electronics pouch. He's an electrical engineering student & has to carry around a bunch of little wires & other stuff that I have no idea what they do! Ha.
Good luck & thanks!

Zombie poster- have to keep that recurrent dream seeded ;)
Happy Holidays!

Amy said...

Super cute pouch! Last year I made a couple of ties for my husband. I'm not sure yet what I'm making this year... possibly Tula Pink's Coastal Cruiser pillow...

Melissa Palmer said...

That is darling! I am getting my husband undershirts, boxers, and socks haha. We're tight on extra money, and it's stuff he needs. Maybe I'll just wrap each individual item separately! :P
Thanks for the chance!

I gave my other half a gift cert for a head neck and shoulder massage which he loved. Lovely pouch - it looks amazing!!

LauraH said...

My guy is so hard to shop for, well at least for fun stuff. He is always in need of shirts, pants, socks, stuff like that, but hardly ever gives me any other ideas. This year I had pictures taken of the kids and me and I'm going to surprise him with it!

Andrea said...

this is so cute!!

not quite sure what to get my husband yet though he claims that the miter saw he just bought for himself counts as my gift... we bought a generator for my dad but the back-up gift idea was a set of whiskey glasses.

jackie said...

love your pouch! And i will be watching the posts here for man ideas... clueless this year once again ;)

Breanna S. said...

Love your pouch. This year I got my husband a new ESV bible. I also got him a tool he has been wanting but I don't remember what it is called. my motto is just breathe.

Breanna S. said...

I am a new follower. Good luck finding that special gift.

Lynne said...

So cute!
This year I'm getting my man some new winter gear and some fun t-shirts. Pretty exciting, I know :)
Thanks for the great giveaway!

Kay said...

Your little pouch is just lovely, thank you for sharing. For the man in my life this year I have bought a voucher towards the 'toy' that he wants, that is an ipad. my son also wants a leather notebook and a real quill pen.

How cute! Doubt I'll be much help: my husband will get a baffle for his banjo (to help muffle it, his request!) and I'm making Ninjago pajamas for my 5 yo son. Thanks for the chance!

Beth said...

Getting my husband beer making supplies. He is a rather avid brewer :)

Beth said...

I follow via GFC!

Shannon said...

This is fabulous! For the men- terrible as always. My BF asked for new motorcycle boots (he sent me the link) so totally boring. I always make him a handmade ornament though to reflect whatever his current interest is- one year it was an ornament made with the evernote logo, one year it was the wifi symbol (with the national park ampitheater symbol on the other side because he used to get them confused), last year it was sons of anarchy, and this year I think it'll be a BMW ornament since he got a new BMW motorcycle. Good Luck!

Jane S. said...

This year I got my husband a weather station, one that tells indoor/outdoor temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and windspeed. Me, I usually just look outside and figure that if it's wet it must be raining, but he loves to fuss around trying to figure out what the weather will be for the next week. :)

Thank you for the chance to win this cute bag!

Emilia said...

i have three mankskies, and i am making them flannel boxers, lounge shorts, etc for winter time. Thanks!

Joy said...

I'm giving him clothes and a new flashlight and tool tote!

Alisa said...

The pouch is fabulous!

I am giving my man a pencil sharpener this year. :-)

Sarah said...

Thanks for the giveaway! We bought ourselves a treadmill last month...so that is our Christmas gift. We are also giving each other a new pair of shoes...creative, I know. :)

Sarah said...

I am following you now, too. :)

Amanda said...

I don't celebrate the holidays. However, for my anniversary this year I'm giving my husband a year's worth of pre-planned dates. Show him he's the most important thing in the world to me.

tawny_tawny said...

Fortunately, one of my brothers loves trinket crap so going to the Target dollar bin works for him :)My other brother is a complete mystery and will probably get t-shirts this year. Some garden ornaments for my green thumb stepdad and a box of Sees truffles for my sweets-loving dad. Good luck on finding the perfect present!

Anna said...

my Dad has asked for dvds and my brother in law wants an Ebay voucher, easy this year! Thanks for the give away!

Happier Than A Bird Quilts said...

Pretty pouch!
My hubby is getting a set of Warhammer 40k miniatures. Otherwise I'd be clueless too.
I made him create a pinterest board to pin ideas for him so I can still surprise him but know exactly what he wants.

jruminski said...

My husband is getting an air compressor hose reel - yes, very exciting stuff around here.

Kelli said...

A gift certificate to get a 2hr massage. Since my hubs works construction there's nothing better he likes to start off his new year than a full body massage to work out all the soreness from his hard labor the year before.

RiverCitySTL said...

I am knitting my husband socks and fingerless mittens at his request!

Rivercitystl AT gmail DOT com

Michell said...

My hubby like farming books about big stations here in New Zealan, so am getting him the latest one out

Michele R. said...

I'm totally drawing a blank on gifts for the man this year. So far, I've gotten him more "needs" instead of "wants": a new coat, a new leather belt, and a few shirts. I'd like to come up with a fantastic fun gift, but have yet to think of anything. If you find something, please let me know!

Oh, and I'd love to win that bag! Super cute! My email address is kudra1978 at aol dot com.

Allison said...

I got my husband a set of ratchet straps, we need them because we're moving. Ummm also a little nightie, because he asked me to get one for me to wear..

Katrin said...

I made a chewbacca stuffie and a zippered pouch in star wars fabric for his tech stuff (power cords and the like). Thanks!

Heather said...

Love the happy fabrics you chose for this bag.

Sandra :) said...

The men in my life are getting Christmas embellished onesies, bibs and taggie/ribbon blankets, and Oliver + S bucket hats :D Others are getting library book tote bags and stuffies, lol. It's way easier to sew for little guys than for big ones - I don't make my husband or sons anything!

Gayle said...

I've been a follower for years Bren.

Gayle said...

Hubby needs a new suit so we wet together to pick one out a couple of weeks ago when Macy's had a fantastic sale. Not very exciting, but it'll do.......

Omee Bubu said...

I am giving him a leather winter jacket! :)

Evelyn in Canada said...

I love quilted pouches and I have never managed to quilt anything. I'm giving my husband a family calendar for his office and updated some pictures he has hanging there of the kids. Not original, but he's always tough.

Thanks so much for the giveaway! I am one of those lucky ones where the man in my life has a birthday 3 days before Christmas. :) Fortunately, he gave me a list of things he wanted. I'm going to throw in some ties in his favorite colors & a hand-knit sweater (he picked out the color and design). I guess the fewer surprises he gets, the happier he is.

Michelle said...

ugh.. why are men so difficult?? i'm going with new jammie pants + candy.

Chez Roo said...

What a lovely pouch to give away! My husband has everything already!! I have no idea what to get him!

Libby said...

I'd really like to give my hubby a Kindle Paperwhite. Our toddler broke our regular Kindle a couple of months ago and he really misses it. It's kind of sold out for Christmas delivery, but maybe I can just give him an IOU for it...

Janarama said...

I'm making fleece slippers/slipper socks for the men in my life. They requested these. I made them last year and they were a big hit.

WHW Katelyn said...

The pouch is so cute! We have decided to take a break from big gifts this year so we can buy a new computer. But candy/beef jerky is always a good one for my man!
kjjharrison(at)gmail(dot)com

Kate said...

I think my husband is getting money for the new computer he desperately wants, my dad is getting a painting of the family dog (that's really his), and my brother is getting a vintage cap for his favorite baseball team.

Eep! Such a cool pouch! I'm having a geek fit!

I'm pretty stumped myself. The Dads are getting bokos. Hubby has me stumped though. Peanutbutter or choc chip bacon cookies always gets his attention. Maybe a ton of that in a stocking just for him.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I'm sewing him a tunic shirt from material with a ukelele design.

jeifner said...

The Kobalt Magnum Grip Pliers will be for my dad. The cool thing about them is they are self adjusting so you don't have to mess with the screws or locking bits or clamp thinga-ma-bobbers. My dad and I saw a commercial on TV about them and he (and I) thought they were really cool.

jeifner said...

I have been dropping by and reading but I'll go ahead and officially follow :)

Nick Ashley Reagan Coen & Ike said...

So far I've gotten him a few things to help him exercise inside when it's too cold and snowy outside. Pretty boring, I want to get him an iphone, but that's not something I could buy without his help. I'd get the wrong thing for sure! My motto is "be nice EVERY chance you get"

Thanks!

Cute bag! I made hubby a knitted hat, he's getting a jogging arm band for his iphone, and a speaker and his very favorite socks for biking.

My husband should be getting a raspberry pi, but i'm not sure it's going to arrive in time... i don't have an alternative yet either!

I'm getting my guy a lap desk for when he wants to use his laptop on the bed.

Kimberly said...

I am giving him a sweater, and specialty beer. Thanks for the giveaway!

My husband and son are getting some handmade flannel lounge pants, gift certificates to Starbucks and the local cinema.

This pouch is adorable! I need to practice my patchwork on something like this!

For the men in my life... well, I'm not sure yet. Last year, I gave my brothers and assortment of different kinds of gourmet popcorn kernels (for their stir crazy poppers) and giant popcorn buckets with filters in the bottom to "sift" out the seeds and some flavored sprinkles for the tops, too... oh, and some dill pickle flavored cashews (those were a total hit!). Otherwise, I usually go the shirt route. What about a car emergency kit or a nice first aid kit?

I am truly stumped about what to get my husband - I asked for ideas and have heard none yet (other than a winning lotto ticket!). I may need to read the comments myself to get some ideas! Thanks for the chance at your adorable bag!

well, it's probably too late for you to start, but I've been knitting a scarf. A 60" loooong scarf. Umm...how about you make a quilted fabric scarf? Or food...cookies always go well as gifts... books from amazon.com ... just a few of the guys in my life's favorite things...

I gave my hubs tickets to see Beauty and the Beast on stage, so a date night together. It was so fun (and in October). Thanks for the chance!

I *always* have a tough time choosing gifts to buy or make for the guys in my life! This year, I've made a few fleece scarves.
Thanks for the chance!
Happy Day!

I am getting my man a new pancake pan... he is the official sunday breakfast maker!

The BF asked for a new wallet. Boring I know. I think I am going to add some gift cards to the new wallet just to make it fun!

Kaynik said...

Well I doubt this will help you for your man, but I am getting my husband a set of spoons for Christmas. I know it sounds weird but he is constantly complaining that there are never any spoons in the drawer, and "who took all the spoons". Like there is some little elf running around stealing spoons! Sheesh. So I figure it will make him happy to have "extra" spoons in the drawer LOL.
