Giveaway # 3

Ah-yes! It is time for the last Phat Fabric grand opening giveaway. I am loving these giveaways. However, it is time to get back to work and update the Pretty Ditty shop, as well as work on my apron pattern. Plus, I have a couple of sewing projects I'd like to share with you as soon as "normal" posting resumes. So with out further adieu, here is Breeze, the half apron for the Giveaway. Breeze is made up of Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom fabric, which I carry in my fabric shop =).

Breeze half apron

How to enter the giveaway

Leave a comment answering 1 or all 3 questions listed below (1 entry per answered question). I know #3 is not really a question.

Here are the 3 ways you can enter to win the half apron.

1. I am a huge fan of the reality TV show Survivor. Every Thursday night, we pop some popcorn, pull out the pull out bed from the couch, and watch Survivor. I've even incorporated Survivor in with my parenting skills. For example, when I need the kids to hurry and clean up their toys, I will set up some sort of obstacle course that includes picking up the toys. I'll then explain to the kids what the course entails and then I'll say "Survivors ready (raising one hand in the air)? GO!" Works every time. With Survivor in mind, the giveaway question is....... If you were on Survivor, what one item would you bring from home? No, there isn't any cell phone service on the island. Silly =)

2. If you don't like Survivor, or don't know what the heck I am talking about, then here's how you can enter. Go to my store and tell me which fabric designer you wish I carried or carried more of (fabric).

3. Lastly, if you have purchased an apron from me before, leave a comment telling me how many aprons you have purchased and under what username. You will recieve 1 entry per apron purchase.

The giveaway will close on October 3, 2008. The winner will be selected via The Random Number Generator.

If you are outside of the US, you are more than welcome to enter the contest. However, you will be responsible for the shipping costs.

Remember, you can enter more than once by answering more than one question listed above.

Survivors ready? .......GO!

The giveaway is now closed. I will announce the winner today. Thank you everyone =)

Good morning Jamie!

1. If I was a contestant on Survivior, I would have to bring a photo album that contains photos of my little family at home. That in itseld would keep me going.

2. I LOVE LOVE Anna Marie Horner and would LOVE to see you carry more of her beautiful fabrics.

3. I've purchased 4 aprons from you using my Hairpetals Etsy name.

Thank you for the fun contests. I hope I win this time (enter witchy laugh here).


Samantha said...

Hi Jamie! Dropping a line to say I am reading your blog, but not entering your wonderful giveaway as I want other people to have a chance :)) Can't wait to see what else you list in your shop and good luck with the pattern writing! You may inspire me to take up sewing!


kara and kalin said...

I would bring a book my husband and I started when we began dating--it has all our memorable moments noted in it; some pictures, drawings, thoughts, etc. I'll treasure it forever.

and i agree with Miranda above, more Anna Marie Horner--her fabrics are absolutely wonderful!

Thanks! Have a great week!

1. I would bring a picture of my family or a tooth brush ;o) It's a toss up, I can always picture my family in my head but would I use to brush my teeth?

2. I would like to see more of Sandi Henderson's fabrics

Mim said...

1. I would bring my bible. Because everything I need to know is in there.

2. More Joel Dewberry, I love the bird prints!

Melanie said...

1. Oh, I'd definitely bring a toothbrush. I think pix of my family would make me cry and I'd need to keep my head in the game!
2. I love Anna Maria Horner's fabrics.

giants fan said...

thanks so much for the chance to win.

1. toothbrush. with a built in holder for toothpaste.

2. I am really new to sewing and don't know too many different designers, so by default I will say Amy Butler.

3. Haven't purchased--- yet! :)

Feeder of the Hungry Beans said...

1. I don't watch Survivor, and I know this isn't practical, but I would bring a hairbrush. I hate that itchy, unbrushed feeling.

2. More Joel Dewberry!

3. Haven't purchased...yet!

Colleen said...

If I was on Survivor I would take a toothbrush.

I would love to see more Heather Bailey.

Sadly, I have not purchased an apron from you.
Thanks for the giveaway!

GoyaDesigns said...

1. I would really want to take my Bible,but I would have to pick feminine napkins, because "it" won't stop visiting just cause I'm kicking butt to win. Groose, but practical.

Please don't add me to the drawing, i just wanted to answer the fun question. Good fortune all contestants.


BrineS said...

More Heather Bailey! Please! :)

I'd love to win this for my sister-in-law in Michigan!


Pretty Ditty said...

OK, for those of you who have not purchased an apron, don't feel bad. The 3rd question is not up there to make you feel guilty, but to say "thank you" to the people who have bought an apron =)

Also, the giveaway is for everyone. That includes the newcomers as well as the faithful commenter's. No one should feel like they "shouldn't" enter the giveaway. It's all good here in the land of Ditties.

Jen said...

I'd like Heather Bailey or more Japanese =)

And great idea whoever said feminine products ;) I'll go with that!!

Marlou Maria-Lourdes said...

If I was on Survivor, I would bring warm clothes like a sweatshirt. They are always shivering at night and I couldn't stand that because I can't concentrate when I'm cold.

Luv the apron. Hope I win!!!

heather bailey. can't get enough of her! :)

but i think you have a good cross section of fabric, just the same. :)


Sue said...

Hi *Ü*

answer to question 1:
I would take a sunscreen/insect repellent, all the survivor contestants seem to get eaten alive no matter country they have been too.
(It was a toss-up between toothbrush, soap or ^^)

your aprons are just gorgeous ad I would love to win one :D

GoyaDesigns said...


I read your little note to those of us that didn't enter the giveaway, and it changed my mind.

Please enter me in the giveaway after all. Is there a rule about not changing your mind?


Rita said...

Love your aprons!
2. Your store's fabric selections are fantastic! More Anna Marie Horner fabrics would be wonderful and Heather Bailey too.
Thank you!

jamie said...

1. If I were on survivor I'd bring some... well, tampons. (now if you could only bring ONE, that wouldn't help much, so I'd change it to my bible.
2. Sandi Henderson
3. Haven't bought any aprons yet, but I love the bird cage tutorial!

Emily said...

1. If I were on survivor, I'd have to take my dslr with me. I could keep some photos of family on the memory card and also capture some pretty cool photos while there.

2. I love the Robert Kaufman fabrics (especially the eco-friendly ones)!

Thanks for the contests!

AyGaviota said...

I am new to this blogging stuff. Don't ask me how i found clue but I am SO-O-O-O-O happy I did!

Here it goes...

Ques. 1- I would bring my positive spirit and a nail clipper. Hang-nails can really put a kink in your "survivor" mode!

Ques. 3- I have purchased seven, siete, (7) aprons via HBZapata on Etsy.

Good luck to me!


Jenny said...

1) Survivor provides sunscreen and female products so I would bring a toothbrush....or a blanket.
2) I love Heather Bailey and Anna Marie Horner fabric!
3) haven't purchased an apron YET. De lurking and finally commenting!

NanainCA said...

I have to tell you this is the first time ever doing this, which I am not sure if this is even right!! Its taken me forever to figure this out. The Blog that is. But I love what you have in your store however it would be nice to have more of Heather Bailey and have you seen some of Jackie Shapiro's Fabric it's very nice as well. I do like everything you have here and Congrats on your move forward, change is a wonderful thing and so refreshing.

Lis said...

1) I would probably bring my sketchbook (and a sketchbook would be of little use without some sort of drawing utensil - is that bending the rules?

2) I see a lot of people would love to see more Heather Bailey - I'm among them!

3) Haven't purchased yet, but plan to in the near future. I keep drooling over your aprons. :)
