For those of you in the Auckland area i'll be at Crafternoon Tea market in Kingsland on Saturday from 10-3pm.
Right...the big question this afternoon is: Swim or Sew? I should be sewing but...it's a darn hot day and the beach is five minutes away....hmmm!

  1. Anissa! All of these pieces are so beautiful. :) You know how I love vintage sheets!! ;) I love that the "smallest" one in the household chooses the winner. What a sweet way to involve the little ones. Have fun with your giveaway! I'm having my first ever one on my blog too this go round. Stop by if you like! :)

    Also - "Crafternoon Tea market"?! Would that I were anywhere remotely in your vicinity . . . that sounds totally sweet!

  2. Lovely stuff, I would definitely go for the swim - always makes you feel so much better and then I find I am way more productive at the sewing machine

  3. Wow love your fabrics. I love following New Zealand blogs, much easier to relate to the writer. Now I'm off to look through your archives!

  4. Damnation! I wrote a comment but can't have posted it properly :) Anywho, just said that I can't believe I haven't stumbled across your blog before as a big fan of NZ crafters (esp sewers seeing as I'm a complete novice). Love your pattern and fabric choices!

  5. Looks like all the kiwi girls are here tonight!- another kiwi here. Great giveaway, and I am not ashamed to beg and say "pick me!" I have a huge weakness for the little cross over tops- just check out my littlest's wardrobe, lol.

    Have added you to my reader list.

  8. I'd love the swing top for my granddaughter! I clicked over to see the top modeled and noticed I have the yellow flower vintage sheets in my closet! They are from my grandmother. They are very used, but hold so many memories.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  9. I know the perfect little girl for the swing top! My mom made these for me and my sisters.....well lets just say MANY moons ago!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I Love love love a bit of creative procrastination...though you can usually find me with my hand sewing work next to the pool on hot days. I'd drag my sewing machine out there if I didn't think the neighbors would protest. These are lovely items for the giveaway, thank you ofr the chance to win them. We love a bit of vintage!

  11. Lovely. Absolutely lovely.

  15. Super cute! Swim? Gosh I wish. Here its a blizzard!!! And my car had NO heat so I had to figure out how to defrost my windows drive it to the shop. But oh well. Blessed to have this day. And to sit around and try to win FANTASTIC stuff like this! :) Ps. Go swim for me!!!

  17. Both fabrics are gorgeous. I'm addicted to vintage linens. They've become a favorite source of fabric for me.

  18. That tunic is adorable! It would be perfect for my new daughter (9 months old!) who just got home from Ethiopia 3 weeks ago. She looks so cute in pink! I'll be crossing my fingers that I win!

  19. I love the SewMamaSew giveaway days too!!! Ok, your sew vs. swim predicament sure is a tough one: those are 2 things I LOVE to do! I'm glad I don't have to make that choice - I'm stuck at home in a blizzard right now! Greetings from snowy, blustery Canada!
    Thanks for the chance to win such lovely prizes!

  20. Oh Anissa I'd so love to win something made by you! Annie would look stunning in that wee dress, yes she would :) and it would warm my heart to know you made it.
    Big Hugs and Merry Christmas to you.
    Love deb xxx

  21. ps I found your blog last year through the SMS giveaway, I'm so glad i did xxx

    ReplyDelete
  22. These are so gorgeous! I think you should go for a swim, then take a nap. :) I wish it was warm here instead of snowy. Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wish I could hear your blog post instead of just reading it! I could listen to an Aussie accent all day. I have a friend here in the US who is spending some extended time over there, but he hasn't picked up an accent yet. booo.
    The fabrics you've chosen for your prizes are lovely and my little Arielle is 13 months and would be beautiful in that top. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the pictures in your blog, all that family way to live seams very nice to me.
    I think there are great prizes.
    I have a giveaway too, hope you'll like my blog too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the prints you chose. You know, I tried to make something out of a recycled pillow case and I was so inspired by it because it was super soft, green and had a decorative multigreen edge. I decided to make a soft turtle toy, and even though it was my first time making a pattern it came out really well, and I was so excited, but as I stuffed it, it ripped! Ridiculous old pillow case.
    It's alright though, I have since made many many more turtles and might even open an etsy shop to sell them! (Head over to my blog to see the original soft green pillowcase turtle.)

    ReplyDelete
  26. What great items!!! I especially love the little dress. I know just the girl who would look adorable in it! P.S. - My birthday is December 17th, so this would be an incredible birthday present!

    ReplyDelete
  27. please please please please go and have a swim in the sea for me!!! The first lot of snow has only just melted and they are predicting more for later in the week! Snow is only fun for the first day or if you live in any other part of the world - here in the UK we can't cope and all the snow, schools, shops and motorways all close and nothing moves!
    (although it is mighty pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sweet pink giveaway! I have only a boy in my house, but can still appreciate pink. Your fabric choices are gorgeous, especially since some of it is REPURPOSED! Here's to pink repurposed shopping bags (love the vintage fabric card, btw) and cute little girlie tops. I'll be making myself one of those someday, I'm sure. A little girlie, I mean. ;)
    Thanks for the generous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I so absolutely love the little swing top! My little gal is sick now (bronchialitis, pinkeye, and ear infection) and though she is only 7 months old, I do think she would jump for joy (despite being rather ill) if she found out she won this top. Really, I will send you a pic of her jumping for joy. She likes to jump when she's happy. And by Friday, she should be feeling well enough to jump for joy too!
    Oh, and I will jump for joy if you swim for us cold Canadians.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very nice! The top would fit my youngest and be adorable on her and the bag would be great for me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh the fabric from the mama bag is beautiful, unfortunately my 4yo girl is too big for the smock (I love these smocks). But count me in for any runner's up prizes and please stop by my giveaway for some floral jewelry. Thanks for hosting a giveaway, I'm glad I got to meet so many new bloggers.

  44. What a lovely little dress and just the right colours for my darling littlest grandgirl! Such a great idea, to re-purpose vintage pillowcases - I won't be looking at my linen cupboard in quite the same way again. In fact, I'm sure I used to have blue pillowslips very similar to the pink material in your bag.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That tunic top is just gorgeous, and I have an adorable little one who would love to wear it. If I win, I promise to follow your blog forever! (Although I think I will probably follow it anyway).

  46. First of all, thanks for doing such a great giveaway for Sew Mama Sew!! I love that tunic and would love to dress my daughter in it! Adorable little model too!

  47. What a gorgeous color you have chosen! So beautiful. As are, of course, what you have made with it. I have a new little niece who would look adorable in the tunic and a new Mama who would love the bag to go with! Hope I get a chance to win it for them. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hello!

    I love that little tunic dress. Lucie, my daughter is 10 months, and she would look smashing in it! Okay, she would look perfect in just about anything...I'm a big fan of hers. :)
    I'm never one to say no to a new bag, either.

    Also, I LOVE the tree bunting you did the other day! I am on a HUGE bunting kick...I'm hoping to make one for her first birthday. We'll see how that goes!

  50. I love the shopping tote for myself! I am getting married in a month and need to get used to grocery shopping on a regular basis with a hungry husband-to-be. I wouldn't mind shopping with this thang! Too cute... Thanks :) cthompson4@liberty.edu

    ReplyDelete
  51. Um I would be all over the swimming if it's hot and the beach is close. I LOVE to swim, but then again I LOVE to sew. Hard choice unless it's unbearably hot, then swim any day! I love the pink. I have 1 boy and a cute little nieces that would love the wrap dress. I of course love the pink bag :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I cannot believe how perfect this would be. We are expecting a new granddaughter in Feb. and her mom's favourite colour is pink! Thanks.

  55. I never would have thought about using the pillowcase, but that is such a great idea. And the crossover top is really cute. I would love to get it, since two of my cousins are pregnant; hopefully at least one will have a little girl. Especially since one of the couples swear that if they have a boy, they will name it Gastropod Plantain...the scientific name for the Banana Slug.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  57. sew glad to have found you! i just made my first ever clothing item (after just recently starting to sew)...smock tops for my girls who wanted a sewing birthday party (their bday is the same day and they both like sewing as much as I do - we are learning together!!)...can i just say I realize how much work into that gorgeous top? can I also say that I have totally embraced pink thanks to my girls!!...and that being a bag lover this bag needs to be added to my collection of cheesy but falling apart canvas sacks!!
    and that I will regularly visit this blog of yours!!
    and that i am babbling cuz I am staying up too late looking at all the inspiring giveways (well, NOT all!!)

  59. What a delightful giveaway! I'm pouting a little that my daughter won't fit into the adorable dress, but a good friend of mine has an almost one year old that this would be perfect for. I love bags and haven't yet made a grocery bag. It's on the list, but somehow just keeps being pushed to the bottom. This one would be great and oh so stylish. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

  65. Beautiful dress and bag! You would make 2 ppl. very happy at my house!

    I would have to say swim. Right now in Nebraska I am freezing. It is a lovely 7 degrees F out. Being out in the warm water / air sounds soooo good. Besides, there is always time to sew in the evening!

I bet her mommy would love this! And then it would be a perfect Christmas gift!!! Lets see.....something interesting....for breakfast I ate 3 cupcakes :D One with chocolate frosting and 2 without frosting.

  68. Oh, these are absolutely beautiful items! I really love vintage linens. It's been so hard to find any pretty ones where we live now. (Recent transplants to the desert.)

    I think I might just be in love with the pinafore. :) I remember wearing them when I was little and have always thought that they're about the cutest thing a little girl can wear. My daughter is *thisclose* to being the right size, too. :)

    Thank you for taking part in the giveaway and for sharing your goodies with the rest of us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I made a top just like that before my little girl was born. It was one of my first clothing sewing projects in a long time - and it didn't turn out very well! But she got some use out of it, and it would be great to have this one that would fit her this summer! Very nice stuff! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  70. So beautiful! I have a pile of sheets just waiting to be repurposed! Thanks for doing this!

  71. The pinafore would be the perfect size for my granddaughter to wear next summer on vacation at the beach!

    ReplyDelete
  72. My 2 year old thinks this would be perfect for her new sister. "bebe sert" (baby shirt) she called it. So from our smallest (for a couple more months) to your smallest... "tank ooo!!"

    ReplyDelete
  73. There once was a girl from the states.
    She loved to sew more then skate.
    Her daughters name should have been kate.
    But that would have made daddy irrate.

    ... don't know where that came from. I really love both the bag and the top. Crossing my fingers on them. :) Thank you for the chance to win!

  77. I love all the pinks. Pink is in the running for favorite color around here, although if you ask my 4 year old daughter what her favorite color is the answer is often. Pink! Purple! Red! Orange! I love all the colors! She is a rainbow girl.

  78. I can't wait until my baby girl can wear dresses/tunics like that!

    I definitely vote for swim. It's crazy humid here in Brisbane. With 2 under 2, getting in the pool isn't an option during the day. When hubby finally gets home, it's witching hour/bedtime and I collapse in bed. It's so frustrating having a gorgeous pool and not being able to get in on a hot day.

    ReplyDelete
  79. OK, my cousin is having her third baby and is positive it's a boy because she "feels different" than she did with her first two (girls). I would love to prove her wrong (just because it sounds so dumb to say that) and give her this for Christmas as a sign that she's having a girl. Mean cousin I am. :)

  86. Beautiful top and bag. I love the cross over design.
    I'd definitely go for the swim. You have to get your swimming in while you can. Plus, it'd be so much fun for the little one. You can always sew, but swimming time has a limit. Enjoy it while you can!

    please take the time to head over to my blog to participate in my giveaway too. i didn't make it to the list in time and it's something small, but there's still plenty of time and there are so few participants that you might actually have a chance to win something :)

  109. That bag is amazing -- isn't it funny how modern the vintage fabric looks? Reminds me of several lines I have seen out. Love the versatility of the tunic idea as well. Thanks for the chance!

  111. I love the fabrics - such sweet prints. I've been looking for things to do with vintage linens, and that bag is just so cute. It's going on my list of things to make! Thank you for sharing!

  113. So funny to hear about how hot it is there while we were just hit with a massive snow storm. Can you enjoy the water then sew a bit? Best of both worlds.

    Thank you for a great giveaway. I love the bag!
