Sew Mama Sew--go check it out...I'll wait! But do come back, won't you please?
THE GIVEAWAY: I'm giving away a piece of vintage upholstery fabric--like printed burlap--that's been sewn on three sides (pillow cover?); 2 vintage apron patterns (the Simplicity is uncut, size medium; the McCall's is missing 2 pieces [pocket and shoulder strap], but transfer is there and I'm sure YOU can replace those missing pieces!); some vintage buttons; some trim; and an Aunt Martha's transfer of "Vegetables for the Kitchen." I'll try to throw in some other vintage sewing goodies, too. Giveaway is open to everyone!
THE BLOG: This blog is not really a crafting blog--though I DO sew, embroider, and knit--it's more just little snippets of my life, but I hope you'll have a look around. Every Friday is Tallulah-Palooza Friday, pictures of my oh-so-adorable dog, Tallulah Mae.
THE SHOPS: Also, I do have two Etsy shops--see over there on the right?--Sew Betty and Dot is all vintage sewing patterns, fabrics, etc., while Betty and Dot is general vintage whatnottery!
THE PATTERN TEAM: I'm a member of a super-cool pattern team on Etsy, the Pattern Patter team, and I invite you to check out the team blog and the team Pinterest board.
THE QUESTIONS (SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ANSWER THEM): Let's choose a fashion icon from each decade of the twentieth century--because I'm lazy, I'm using Wiles Magazine's picks (go here to see the slideshow):
1910s: Gabrielle Dorziat (I know, I didn't know about her, either--she championed Coco Chanel, apparently)
1920s: Louise Brooks
1930s: Marlene Dietrich
1940s: Veronica Lake
1950s: Audrey Hepburn (I think of her more in the 1960s, but hey)
1960s: Jackie Kennedy (but let's add Twiggy in there to embrace the Swingin' part of the Sixties!)
1970s: Pam Grier
I'm stopping here--I just CAN'T with the nineties!
Question 1: whose style do you love the most?
Question 2: who would you most like to hang out with?
If you just want to say "Pick me!" that's fine too! I know there are hundreds of blogs to visit...I'll use ye olde Random Number Generator to pick one winner.
Whew, that's it! Thanks for stopping by!
