{Sew Grateful Week} Giveaways Part 5

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!  I've got more Sew Grateful giveaways to share with you all today!

This is the fifth giveaway post (wowza!)  Here's the links to the other posts from the week in case you missed any:

The Presser Foot Propaganda Giveaway for Three Vintage Patterns

I'm really excited about this giveaway!  Forrest who blogs over at Presser Foot Propaganda is hosting a giveaway for three awesome vintage patterns!  Here's what she says...

"I know I'm a little late to the party, but I am SO (and sew ;) grateful for all of you! I started this little blog almost a year ago and I can't believe how much fun I've had sewing for this blog and getting to know all of you! So here's a little giveaway to show my love ;)"
A lucky winner will win all three of these patterns.  They are all either 32 or 34 inch bust. All you have to do to win is leave a comment on Forrest's giveaway post.  The giveaway closes at noon on Thursday, February 16.

The Marguerite Designs Giveaway for an Amy Butler Pattern and Pincushion

The wonderful Diane who blogs over at Marguerite Designs is hosting a giveaway for her followers.  I had the pleasure of meeting Diane at the UK meet-up.  Despite having never met before we managed to find each other in King's Cross train station!!
Here's what Diane says...
"Sometimes, I find it really hard to switch off from the everyday routine and I'm also aware that I'm not being 'creative' these days, which is what I originally trained to be.  Sewing has helped me to re-discover this side of myself in lots of ways ... there's the searching for fabulous fabric and choosing just the right stuff for a pattern.  There's the creativity of visualising how something is going to turn out, then the actual making and having something unique to wear.  I'm also inspired and encouraged by other bloggers and their creations, so as a thank you, I'm giving away this pattern and pincushion as part of Sew Grateful week."
To enter the giveaway, just be a follower of Marguerite Designs and leave a comment on the giveaway post before Valentine's Day.

Another Sewing Scientist Giveaway for Two Sundress Patterns

Here's another great giveaway from Vicki who blogs over at Another Sewing Scientist.  If you don't already read this blog, you must! It's fabulous!  I had the pleasure of meeting Vicki at the NYC meet-up this last Autumn.  Here's a bit about her...
"During the day, I am a mild mannered scientist. During the evenings and weekends, I am an exhausted mom. During my free time, I am teaching myself to sew. In other words, my house is a mess and we eat a lot of pasta."
Hop on over to her blog and check out this fabulous giveaway for two sundress patterns.  All you have to do is leave a comment on her giveaway post. She'll also post internationally!

The 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World Giveaway for Kimono Wrap Top Pattern and Fabric

I just adore Steph's blog called 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World  and am super excited about her announcement that she just finished making a pattern for her kimono wrap top and is selling it through Craftsy! She made her originally top in a lovely Merino fabric.  Here's what she says...

To celebrate, I went shopping at The Fabric Store.  Not for me, for you!  I picked up this delicious piece of blue New Zealand merino to give away.  I’ve been going on about this fabric so much lately, I’d like to share the merino joy.  This piece is not exactly sweater weight, more like a winter blouse / spring cardigan.  When I hold it up to the light, I see the gently slubbed yarn.  It’s fine, but strong and soft.
To win 1.7m of New Zealand merino fabric and a copy of the Kimono Wrap pattern, leave a comment on Steph's giveaway post telling her what kind of pattern you’d like to see next. She'll choose a winner at random next Saturday evening (18th of February) at 6pm (her time) and she'll ship anywhere.

The Sew Far Sew Good Giveaway for a Pattern, Fabric and Buttons

Charlotte from Sew Far Sew Good, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the UK meet-up, is hosting a fantastic giveaway for a pattern, fabric and adorable yellow buttons!  Here's what Charlotte says..
"I know it's late but I did want to thank all of you that follow my blog. I want to say how grateful I am to everyone who's blog I follow as you are inspiring and supportive. I've never been in such a fantastic crowd of people so needless to say a give away (sorry it's so late)."
The pattern is in a size bust36 and the giveaway includes yellow buttons that could go with the cute fabric. There is one meter of the flowered fabric and it is two meters wide.  To have a chance of winning follow Charlotte's blog and leave a comment on Charlotte's giveaway post.  The winner will be named on Sunday 12th Feb 2012.
