SMS Giveaway - bunting AND bag!

A warm welcome to you, especially those of you who have journeyed here from Sew Mama Sew today!
It's always such a pleasure to participate in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaways, i have been a regular and wouldn't miss it.
Up for grabs here is one reversible set of bunting flags from my GrowMama vintage handmade babies and childrens range...made from upcycled vintage sheets and vintage fabric. The one here is clearly very pink...not my usual, if you would like one for your wee fellow, i will make one especially for him.

I like to include something for the mama's: this year it is a vintage fabric handbag made from Melissa from tinyhappy's pattern. I am always in awe of mama's and think you need something special too.






All you need to do is leave a comment. The Giveaway remains open until the 25th of May and at its' close i choose my 15 favourite comments. Yup, i read 'em all! The names all go into a hat and the smallest of the household pulls out the winner. And, just quietly...i always do a wee runner up prize too. I am more than happy to ship internationally.



If you haven't done so already, pop along to the Sew Mama Sew blog and peruse the lists of participants in May's Giveaway Day...it's an inspiring way to spend an evening, or two.



And, stay tuned for the Creative Mama series starting here on GrowMama very very soon.



Enjoy!

  11. i love your idea of choosing your favorite comments and then drawing from those. i think i might just use that idea for my next giveaway.

    i love vintage sheets. i've used them to make pillow covers for my couch and floor pillows to use on board game nights. i have plans to make a picnic blanket from them. i'd love to have a vintage sheet bunting! thanks for the chance.

  12. That bunting would look soooo cute in my daughters room above the window, or even hanging on her bunk bed. That bag would make a great diaper bag. My little guy is 9 months. He is the cutest thing ever. Just prefect for some diapers and wipes.

  17. My daughters would love the pink bunting in their room.

    They are both getting an early start on craft projects. We recently started making things with beads and my craft/hobby room is looking very colorful! So much fun though having mother / daughter time doing something that we all enjoy so much.

  31. What a fun way to reuse sheets! I found some old white ones cleaning out my grandma's closets and tye-dyed them - been making little sun hats out of them for the summer months!

  36. Oh the bunting is lovely!
    And well, the bag, I've got a bit of an addiction so that's lovely too.

    Creative goodies and a creative way to pick a winner :)

  37. Anissa - will it be karma this year that brings your giveaway to me?! I adore both of your lovely makes. Bunting is something I keep meaning to make but just never seem to get around to. Just so very cute. And of course, I had to jump into another quilting bee that uses vintage sheets because the first one was too much fun. :) Hope you're enjoying giveaway day this go round! I know I am.

  39. I love bunting but never take the time to make some for us. My daughters' room is yellow with pink curtains and their names in pink so this would just fit right in. The little boy will eventually move over there...but we'll cross that bridge when it comes:)

  42. Hi- thanks for doing this giveaway! The bunting is adorable.

    I had to laugh at your bike + puddle pictures. We have had an extremely rainy May where I am, so lots of mud and puddles for the kids to play in. Just the other day I had to do the same exact thing you did- dump the water out of the boots and just let them dry :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great giveaway and such talent - you should be proud! Thanks bunches!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the 'something for the mama'. Like most mama's the kids come first and I'd love that cute little bag...all that fabric reminds me of my nana!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I stopped by due to the SewMamaSew link. I love the colors and patterns chosen for the bunting and the bag. I'm just sad that all of my friends have had boys!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my gosh! I love that bunting!! (And that's saying something... this is the first one I've seen that I've liked! Seriously!!!) I think I even have the same fabric waiting to upcycle (2nd picture bottom right flag). I just wish there was ONE more flag on it...so I could put my youngest daughter's name on it. (But I would love to have it for her regardless!!)
    I also adore that purse/bag/tote!! If I'm going to be totally honest I'd probably use it as a purse/diaper bag. Until I no longer need the diaper bag. HA! :)

    Feel free go visit my giveaway. :) http://3giraffesinc.blogspot.com/2011/05/sew-mama-sew-giveaway-day.html

  54. These are just lovely - both the bag and the bunting. :) My littles are one of each, but my guy is pretty fond of all things pink (his favorite after green), so a pink bunting would be very well received in our playroom. And while I'm generally not head-over-heels about bags, I'm really quite fond of this one. The style is quite nice and the fabric reminds me of some that I knew as a child. :) Thank you for taking part in Giveaway Day and for offering up some really great goodies!

  58. I love buntings!! eep, if I may I decorate all my house in them but my husband would throw them out the window because he's so tall and the buntings might annoy him, and we have a really low ceiling. Anyhooo,, I love your blog title GrowMama! A mama can't stop growing can she?

  59. We love your bunting and bag... I have the perfect location for the bunting in mind...

  60. I appreciate that you read all of the comment instead of letting a computer decide! My daughter would love this bunting for her "big girl" room (which I still secretly wish was a "baby" room). My kids are growing up so fast! I wish they would just stay little for a bit longer. Your profile sounds so interesting. I would love to come visit some day!

  63. I have a brand new grand baby, my very first grand baby, who was born on Mother's day this year. I am sure the bunting would look wonderful in Elise's new bedroom, and her Mama would LOVE that new handbag!! It is so summery looking!! Thanks@

  80. I love the bunting and the bag...they both are wonderful! I also loved your puddle pictures. In New Hampshire we have what we call mud season in the spring. One year I bought my daughter three pairs of mud boots because I thought they had holes in them...they were always wet inside. Come to find out, they were wet because she would take them off at the shallow pond so she could hold the tadpoles she was catching!!! I only learned this last year...and she is in college!

  89. I love these bunting flags! I have always had a soft spot for 60's inspired vintage, and I think it's fantastic that you are upcycling the fabric! We are moving soon, and the flags would look great in my 10 week old daughter's new room! Spice it up with some vintage flair! ;)

  95. Some thought from my 2-year-old:

    She was looking at an ABC book with her dad. They were on the page with "Q".
    Daddy: "What starts with Q?"
    Sierra: "I don't know"
    Daddy: "She a woman who wears a crown"
    Sierra: "I don't know"
    Daddy: "An important woman who makes all the rules"
    Sierra: "MAMA!!"

    Sierra: "Do I look like a pwetty gu-wol?"
    Me: "You look like a beautiful girl."
    Sierra (matter-of-factly): "Yeah. I thought so."

    After going to the bathroom:
    "That was an aaaahh-maaaaz-zing poop!"

    ReplyDelete
  96. this is a lot of pressure for a comment. I'll have to go with my favorite joke right now. (Technically, the only joke I can ever remember)

    What did the snail say on the turtle's back?

    "Wheeeeeee!"

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  97. My 3yo daughter would LOVE that bunting! Sadly her 6yo sister has had one for... well, 6 years, and I have never made her one. Poor second children!
