Giveaway - personalised name pillow pattern

Time for a giveaway!

The generous ladies over at YouCanMakeThis.com have sent me two copies of their popular Name Pillow sewing pattern to give away to two lucky people. Here's your chance to make a beautiful appliqué and patchwork pillow for the special small one (or ones) in your life.



The pattern is written in a thoughtful way and would suit even a novice sewer. There are detailed steps and accompanying photographs throughout, as well as alphabet templates for creating the personalised name. Like all the patterns at YouCanMakeThis.com, it comes in a handy PDF format.

To enter: simply leave a comment explaining why you'd like to win a copy of the pattern. Two winners will be drawn at random at 9.00am on Sunday 17 May (Melbourne EST time, GMT +11). You don't need to have a blog to enter. Just leave a traceable link so I can contact you if you do win. The patterns will be e-mailed.

Good luck!

    My daughter is getting married, and everytime I walk into her bedroom it makes me sad and happy, happy that she has found love and is so excited about the upcoming wedding but sad that she is moving. so a pretty pillow with her name on it on her bed will be so nice for me to see when i walk into her room.

  8. those pillows are sooo gorgeous - if I made enough of them my gorgeous little Kindergartener would be able to make sentences on her bed. *That* would be motivation to read if nothing else.

  9. Having twin girls I spend lots of time making things with their name (or initial) on them so people can tell who is who (no they're not identical, at all!).
    Now I've created two monsters who LOOOVE anything with their name on it - so this pattern would be perfect for keeping them happy!

  14. Hi there - my girls (twins) would love these because I could put two gorgeous pillows on their beds and maybe that would keep them in bed longer in the mornings at the weekend? What do you think?! Emily
