Straight Lines and Angles Day 1 – Alida Makes and Shwin and Shwin

Today is the first day of the Straight Lines and Angles series! For the next two weeks, bloggers will be sharing their sewing projects, inspired by anything geometric [lines, shapes, etc.] I’m so super excited to share my first two guests, both of whom I am HUGE fans of.

Straight Lines and Angles

Shauna of Shwin & Shwin is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Okay, so we’ve never met in person, but we’ve been bloggy friends for awhile, and she is so kind and genuine. And she’s got some mad sewing and designing skills! She’s part of the Pattern Anthology team, plus she has an outstanding collection of patterns in her shop, Shwin Designs [my favorite are the Nowhere Man Pants, in case you’re wondering]. Head on over to see the amazing dress she created!

Alida of Alida Makes is like my fashion icon. She rocked it recently in Project Sewn [these pants she made? ahMAYzing], and she was part of the recent STYLO online kids’ fashion magazine. You’re going to love what she made for her daughter, so pop over and check out her outfit!

Here are the giveaway details!!

These four amazing designers and blogging friends have so graciously donated prizes for this series. There are four prizes, which means there will be four winners.

One winner will receive a $30 gift certificate from the Imagine Gnats shop. She sells gorgeous fabric and some really incredible PDF patterns – for women and kids. So whoever wins this will definitely find something wonderful!

One winner will receive a copy of the Triangle Pants pattern from See Kate Sew. When Kate released this pattern, I thought it would fit perfectly with this series, and was so excited when she agreed to be a part of the giveaway. I just love Kate’s patterns, and the design of the Triangle Pants is so unique!

One winner will get to choose between a copy of the Sally Dress or the Sweetheart Dress from Very Shannon. I’ve sewn the Sally Dress before (you can see it here) and it creates a wonderful garment. But you can’t go wrong with either one. :)

One winner will get to choose a PDF pattern from the Sew Like My Mom shop. She has some adorable patterns – for boys and girls. I have her Kudzu overalls pattern and am dying to get a chance to sew it up!

The giveaway will be open through the entire two weeks of the series, and then the winners will be randomly chosen.
