A couple giveaways and a guest blog!

Okay first things first, there are a couple great giveaways going on out there right now:

1) An AWESOME workout DVD at Fitness For The Rest of Us.  It's almost swimsuit season ladies!  Click here!

2) A cute neclace with matching earings at Glued to My CraftsClick here!

And now for a guest blog. . .

Hello out there from Crafty Girls Workshop!  This is my first post swap so I hope you'll join me on a quick shop and blog tour.

The Crafty Girls Workshop is made up of Regina (our fabulous shipping and receiving department, plus pattern tester/sample maker) and Anna (me) who is techy oriented and does a lot of the online stuff such as manage shop listings, e-mailing customers and posting to the blog. I also sew when I get the chance but lately there just aren't quite enough hours in the day to do everything I want to (and daylight savings time doesn't help either!)

Since Jill has such a cute little boy, I thought I'd feature a pattern we have that is great for a baby. It's the Baby Overalls pattern by Jackie Clark. I really LOVE Jackie Clark's patterns. They are practical and stylish and relatively easy to make. I haven't personally made any yet, but Regina (our pattern tester) and some other friends around blogland have said they are great go-to patterns for making gifts for friends. I've put together a little collage of some fabrics that I think would be adorable made into these overalls. The best thing about this pattern, I think is that it's great for a boy OR girl! Just change the fabrics and add a ruffle for the girl pattern and pockets for the boy!

Here are some cute fabrics we have from the new Make Life line by Sweetwater. It's 100% cotton and perfect for overalls for a baby boy.

I just love these Candy Kisses fabrics by Sandy Gervais, they are small prints and perfect for this pattern for a little girl.

Finally, I want to mention that I posted a tutorial for a really pretty pillowcase on our blog recently. I included a printable PDF link so you can print it out and keep it handy next to your sewing machine. It's another great last minute project to make for gifts for friends.

Thanks for the post Crafty Girls Workshop!

I will be posting some more of your projects from the link up party later today.  If you havn't linked up yet, join the party!  There are prizes in store!
