It's Giveaway Time!

It's been too long since I hosted a giveaway, I decided to make this a 2'fer.  Good things come in 2's :)

I was approached by Leslie of Mamma Tortilla to participate in their first giveaway and create "something cute".  So many things fall in my "cute" list, but the very first thing that came to my mind was to make a little doll perfect for a little girl that included a change of outfits along with a matching baby quilt.  Now the doll being pictured has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes, but no worries, I've offered to create a personalized little cutie for the special little girl in your life if you are the winner---granted your little one does not have Dark Brown or Dark Brown eyes, so this is a giveaway for everyone!




Head over to Mamma Tortilla's blog to enter to win a doll and for more information regarding this giveaway.  While you're there, check out their blog, it's so cute and full of great tutorials and ideas for you to make and make that to-do list of yours even bigger :)


~~~~~~~~~~
WAIT......THERE'S MORE!!!!

Spring will be here before you know it and that along with Summer are my 2 favorite seasons, why?  I love getting my girls dressed up like little princesses.

That dress is absolutely adorable. My daughter will love it! And we won't have to wait for warmer weather since we live in Honolulu - she will get to wear it year-round (and probably would not part with it like your daughter) like she does her Hawaiian dresses.

I love this dress!!! I have always admired it from HG and believe me I could absolutely vision this adorable dress on my 2 year old daughter twirling and twirling. Love your creations Abbie! Just beautiful!

That is such a beautiful dress! I have a 2 year old little princess who would have so much fun twirling in that dress. She has 6 older brothers & is such a girly girl. Some day I hope to teach myself to sew like that :)

Aside from the fact that it's outrageously gorgeous, I want to win that dress so my daughter can have her own bit of sunshine to surround her.

I am so awe struck by this dress. So what to say that will outshine my comment to win your dress. I have two girls, and sadly a mommy who is not the sewing kind. Most of their clothes are the geranimals line from walmart. They would be over the moon to wear this dress. It would be the biggest treat to wear this spring and summer. Good luck on yoru choice any little girl woudl look great in it. ~Pattock6 (HG)

My six year old niece would love this dress, she is definately a girly girl - I have a boy the same age as her, they are on a bowling team together, we have to talk her out of wearing her dresses when she bowls. Thank you for the contest.

HI Abbie, I am from HG...love that dress. I think I should win because today is my baby's 2nd birthday! This dress will be a perfect bday gift for sure! And oh ya I am deathly afraid of a sewing machine, so I will never be able to make her one of these fabulous dresses ever! Thanks!

This is so beautiful! My mother used to quilt and smock and she would absolutely adore this dress on her grandbaby! My daughter will be 2 in June and this would be the perfect gift!

Chrystal said...

Wow. In this trying economy, what a wonderful gesture for you to give away a free dress!! This dress is ADORABLE! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE patchwork. I cannot sew a straight line, so I appreciate all the work put into patchwork designs. Boutique clothing is just awesome. I love when girls are able to have clothes that aren't mass produced and that give them a chance to have something that is original. I have two girls. A 10yo and a 10m old (yes, you read that right! The Lord decided our family wasn't done). I would be ecstatic to have either of my girls in this dress. My hopes are that you would choose my comment, but to be honest, your choice will be a blessing for whomever may receive it. Thank you for your kind heart.

Andrea said...

Hi. My name is Angelina and my mommy's name is Andrea. We think that the dress is absolutely gorgeous. It is so beautiful how you can see that your little one is twirling and still see the patchwork on the dress! I will be 1 on February 16 and while Mommy is trying very very very hard to learn how to sew, she is just not very good at it. I'd love to have a handmade dress before I hit college.

Love,
Angelina

The dress is gorgeous!

Andrea

My little girl was sitting next to me as I read your blog and said, oh mommy who is that girl, she looks like a princess! She loved the dress!!! Her best friend passed away last week and I think this is the first time I have heard her giggle since. So that made me a winner already!

The dress is absolutely adorable. I would love to have it for my 3 year old red headed granddaughter. She loves to twirl around one way and then the other. She always asks when she's done, "Mama, why is the floor moving?". Her name is Lucy to go along with the beautiful strawberry blonde red hair.
Rita or better known as Rae Rae to my grand children.

What a beautiful dress and I have a little Grandie who would just love to twirl like a princess.

janasmama said...

Wow. Those photos are jaw-drop gorgeous. Of course your princess helps the cute factor of it all.

I'm impressed at the work of this. I sew and I can appreciate the time that goes into this. I love all things handmade and this dress would be a cherished heirloom in our family...one of the pieces we will keep for my own grandchildren.

Nadia@FunWithMama said...
