In all the fun and festivities of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway, Flamingo Toes passed the lovely milestone of 100 followers. Rather than do another giveaway so quickly, I decided to award my 100th follower with a little dishtowel of her own. She gave me free reign on color – you gotta love that – and this is what I came up with.
I love this apple fabric, don’t you? And ric-rac? Yummy. I hope she likes it.
To pack up and send off this little sweetie I wanted to try a fun tutorial I had seen a while back on Sew Sweet Stitches. It is for handmade bubble mailers. She has a very clear, easy tutorial so I won’t give you all the steps – you can check out her site for that. But here’s my finished mailer.
It was sooooo easy – just tape and stitch and ta-daaa! Custom, cute, pink mailer! :)
I sewed mine closed – and I wrote the address on the front with a black Sharpie rather than use a label because I’m too lazy busy to go get some.
So it’s off in the mail Tuesday!
And while sewing up this dishtowel and mailer, I got all sentimental and was thinking about how much I appreciate my followers. Being such a newbie to blogging, I really appreciate you guys who check in with what I’m doing occasionally and leave me sweet comments.
And because I appreciate you so much, I’ve decided to have a monthly follower giveaway. I’m still working on this, but the gist of it would be that this would be a giveaway only available to Flamingo Toes followers. No commenting to win.
I’ll pick a day every month – let’s say the 15th just to help me remember – and that day I’ll draw a random follower and award them a prize.
Sometimes it will be something I’ve made recently, but I’ll also scout out some cool etsy shops and do some gift certificates, or a prize from that shop. What do you think? Sound fun?
I think so too. If you want to win – make sure you have an email or your blog linked up to your follower ID. That way I can get ahold of you. Otherwise the Random thingy will have to pick someone else. :)
So we’ll start with the first Follower giveaway on June 15. About a week before that, I’ll announce the prize for that month on my sidebar – I’ll post it with this picture – so you’ll know what to watch for.
