BDR Giveaway!!

***This giveaway is now closed***

Happy 4th of July!

How was your weekend? Full of awesome Button Down Rehab upcycles and refashions I hope?

Mine was full of a LOT of driving. The hubby, kids and I are visiting family for the holiday, which meant a lovely 14 hour drive for us. I'm sure those of you with children understand the horror of spending that much time in the car with young children. Rapunzel was practically on repeat. Now that I'm back on solid, unmoving ground, it's time to kick back, relax, and let the grandparents spoil the kids.

But enough about me, let's talk about you.

I had a ton of fun hosting the series, and I hope you enjoyed all the great projects from myself and my guest posters as well. I've made some new friends along the way, and I wanted to thank everyone for participating in the series. 

And of course, what better way to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone than with a giveaway??




1. Patty Young for Michael Miller: Hive fabric in turquoise.

Did anyone notice this fabric I hid in my fabric stash in my Pittsburgh highlights post? I kinda slipped it in there to see if anyone would recognize that it's the same one I used to make Haley her Bee Pants. Well I loved it so much that I found the same print in turquoise last time I went to Loom, and I picked up a yard to give away!

This could be used to make so many cute things! A clutch maybe? Some adorable beehive coasters? A ruffly skirt? All of the above? I mean, I am giving you a yard after all!

2. Two iron on bee transfers in hot pink.

While I was giving away the cute Hive fabric, I couldn't resist the chance to use my new Silhouette to include a couple of smooth iron on bee transfers as well. Each bee is 3 inches wide and 2 inches tall. And after cutting them out with my Silhouette, I realized that there were a bunch of little pieces that would need to be picked out before ironing, so I sat there with tweezers and picked them all out for you. How nice am I??



I'm envisioning a ruffly skirt and matching top with one of the bee transfers on it for a little girl. That's what I would make anyway :)

3. Four washer pendants.

I made these cute little pendants from washers, letter seals, and Diamond Glaze. Sorry folks, the chain isn't included, but you could find the same kind of thing at a craft store.


4. One of my Bow Cuff Bracelets from day 6 of Button Down Rehab.



My Bow Cuff Bracelet project is tied with my Button Down Bibs as my favorite project of the series. I love it so much because of the "nautical look" that it has with the blue stripes and the red accent. (Oh, and I just might have a nautical-themed dress in the works...)

  8. I am following your blog since I got word of the Button Down Rehab through my RSS Feed. Especially the bib (http://jensownroad.blogspot.com/2011/06/button-down-rehab-day-8-button-down-bib.html) caught my eye immediately. I'm definitely doing to make this bib for the cutest baby-boy that ever existed: That of my eldest sister. He (his name is Maas) was born last week as her first-born, in a family full of girls (of which I am one, of course, I admit my guilt ;)). My mother was telling me yesterday she was going to trow away old blouses, and I immediately stopped her. I think they'll be a good starting point for the new bib-project I learned about here. Whether I win the give-away or not, I'll be forever grateful for the great ideas and creativity you've given me. Thanks a bunch!

  15. Well, I love ALL the ideas, but I'm drawn to the Bracelet Cuff, perhaps that is the part of the shirt that might normally be forgotten in re-cycling.........
