Happy Giveaway Day!

Happy Giveaway Day, friends! This is my 2nd time doing the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway and I'm excited that you are stopping by to check it out. I've wanted to participate in others since my first time, and I'm happy that life has finally stopped getting in the way. 

I've been knitting up these baby bloomers for the new babies in my life; and now I'd like to offer you a chance to give a pair to a baby in your life. They are sized for babies 0-6 months, and if you don't currently have a tiny baby to put them on, they make a great gift. 

You don't have to tell a soul that you got them for free.


For a chance to win, I'd like you to leave a comment telling me what you like to read (or what you wish you had time to read). My rockstar husband gave me a Nook for mother's day and I am always looking for book recommendations.

It's not necessary to win, but I'd like to invite you to take a look at my facebook, pinterest, and twitter pages. When I reach 100 followers on facebook, I'm going to do another giveaway.

The giveaway will be open until May 25 at 5 p.m. Make sure I can easily find your email address or else leave it for me in your comment.

Good luck!

(I will ship internationally, as well.)

  5. These are suck cute little pants! I am due in December so it won't be long before I will have someone to dress in cute little clothes again. :)

  13. I love woolies for babies! My favorite reading right now is Georgette Heyer's romances (witty, romantic, clean ; )) and D E Stevenson's books (set in Britain in the 30s-60s, just really nice, friendly-feeling books).

  14. With a two year old and another on the way, I haven't had much time for reading for awhile. Unless you count "Green Eggs and Ham". If I do get a rare chance to read, it will usually be a classic of some sort.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love stories that combine a little bit of fantasy/magic/weird with more realistic aspects. The best of these, I think, are Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next novels. He has a few other series, as well, which are also a good bet.

    Thank you for the chance to win such a generous giveaway! I'm just beginning my the 2nd trimester of my first pregnancy, and these bloomers would be a fantastic addition to the baby wardrobe!

  16. I am constantly reading child-development and parenting books. I am a trained Montessori guide for birth-3yrs, and a young mama, so it is so very interesting to me to read everyone's very different opinions ;)

  17. Ooooh, fabby prize! I'm expecting a new one in July and we've not tried wool, it's mainly been fleece with my son. Saying that I have lanolin and wool wash, just not the wool, not sure how that happened?!

    I'd recommend a book called Shantaram by Gregory Roberts, it may not be to everyones taste but i loved it. I keep meaning to read it again. It's certainly one of those books that pulls you in.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have a 7 week old and could totally use these! We cloth diaper and these are so great for covering little cloth bums :)

    I want to re-read Harry Potter. And hubby wants me to read lonesome dove. Either of those would require me being allowed to sit down for a length of time, though! Thank you for sharing your talent and your time. These are lovely!

  19. Barbara kingsolver's Animal Vegetable Miracle is great and I also liked her newest one... La Lacuna or something like that!

    cute give-a-way! I have a skinny almost 6 month old, so perfect! :)

  20. I like to read anything! Right now I am reading memoirs of Cleopatra :)

  21. Oh, those would be perfect for our new little girl! For reading...I love everything, but I wish I had more time. My latest downloads have been Let's Pretend This Never Happened, a bunch of super scary/depressing books on epidemiology (yay public health), and Simplicity Parenting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am kind of a sucker for historical ficton, but I always enjoy a good mystery too. When I recently had a long plane trip I downloaded everything that Oscar Wilde had written for free and enjoyed it all!

  24. Filling my Kindle up with freebies some but really no favorite. Not as much time with LO and I read too many blogs and DIY, then no time to do them!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm a fan of Christopher Moore, too. Especially his book, Fool. But I could go for any reading these days. On the other end of the spectrum, I find I really enjoy Haruki Murikami and Vladimir Nabakov's short stories. Thanks for the giveaway; I'd love to put this on my baby due in September. :D sneakfuzz at hotmail

  26. I like reading horror books like Stephen King- but I have had no time lately with lots of littlies...I'm sure when they get older I will be able to return to my reading ways :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, these are so adorable! We had a very similar pair for my son when he was a tiny little thing and I just loved them so much. No more babies for us, but it would be awesome to share such a lovely gift with a friend's baby!

    For the book question... Erm... Hmm. My kids haven't been allowing me much time to read lately. I always tend to fall back on Jane Austin when I have a chance, though my all time favorite book is probably "A Heroine of the World" by Tanith Lee.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I consistently enjoy Francine River's books, especially her Mark of the Lion series. Love finding books I want to read over and over again!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just read th Hunger Games trilogy, definitely worth the read. I'm expecting number 3 in a month, and would love these.

    ReplyDelete
  30. These are SO cute! I would love to knit my incoming daughter a pair but I am not so good with the needles :/

    I read comics, when I get the chance. I used to read books all the time but it's REALLY difficult to find time to read once you get a kid! At least with comics it takes me a few minutes to pour over one {Also I'm a super nerd}

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wish I had time to read anything adult! I think the favourite book I read a LOT is Room On The Broom. My baby boy would look gorgeous in these longies!

    ReplyDelete
  32. My favorite read is a Sandra Brown novel. She has another one coming out in September. I have a daughter in law who works with new moms, helping them with breastfeeding. I would give this to her to gift to a mom in need.

  35. I just read Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver and it was super good.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I read a lot of mysteries. Ann Purser is one of my fave English "cozy" mystery writers. My great niece is being born at this very moment, & would love to be able to share this prize with her!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well these sure would be perfect for the baby boy that we're welcoming this Sept. I haven't started to knit a thing yet!

    And now, about that book... some favorite reads over the last few years have been: the Mistress of Spices and Sister of my Heart both by Chita Banerjee Divakaruni. A Trip to the Stars by Nicholas Christopher. And one of my all time favorites Ahab's Wife by Sena Jester Naslund.

    Enjoy! And thanks for the opportunity to win. Now, heading to your Twitter, etc.

  38. I picked up a hardcover of Last child in the Woods by Richard Louvy at a thrift store a few months ago. Its a book that I've been wanting to read for ages, but haven't had time. We're expecting our third baby, though, in a few weeks, so I expect that I will have lots of nursing/ reading time soon!! Those pants would make a great addition to the baby's wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The last thing I read was The Hunger Games Trilogy, before that I can't remember... I tend to craft in the evening and my toddler doesn't allow reading during the day. Well, he does, but I'm not going to recommend you read all the Mr Men books or Hairy Maclary ;)
