100 Item Giveaway Update!

If you have been following me for awhile, you probably know that I am on a mission to giveaway 100 items this year to commemorate my 40th birthday this year. And I was hoping to get to my 40th item by my birthday. I did it! I'm actually at 42 items as of today!  Below are are few I wanted to highlight. You can see them all on my Facebook page.  The album of all items is HERE.

I upcycled a few of Felix's old Minecraft T-shirts and put them in the Weekly Auction for Gwen. I was really happy with how they turned out! But the Duck Butt Designs Treasure Pocket Tee always looks amazing.

I made this cute top from a strike off from Knit Picked Fabrics and it also went into an auction. I rarely wear short sleeves or I would have kept it. This was the Stitch Upon a Time's Merryweather.

I sometimes I'll do a custom listing. I post the fabric in the auction and let the winning bidder tell me what they want made. This particular one was unique - the winner asked for a nursing Spoxxy Tank (Pattern from Stitch Upon a Time).

This was another custom. I actually had posted this fabric from Star Dust & Moon Beam with a Dr. Who custom knit and the winner said she really didn't want the Dr. Who, so I made her a Laundry Day tee from Love Notions with just this print.

The Giving Tree print is special to me and was perfect for an auction item. These are Scrundlewear from Stitch Upon a Time.

I love that 3 Material Girlz ran some prints with prominent women. These were strike offs I was sent and think they turned out so cute.

This one is a pattern I hacked.

This one is the Block the World top from Koerbs Brothers Stitch Design.

 This is a quilt I made with cotton woven strike offs from Star Dust & Moon Beam. I amazed myself making this in only 2 days!

Each item I made, was made with love. I normally don't know who it's going to. But I always love to hear from the recipient when they get the item and especially love to see photos of my creation being worn or used. Even just a note saying how much they loved it, just makes my day. It makes the task ahead - 58 more items, not seem so daunting. Stay tuned to see if I make it.
