Giveaway: LUCKY Pillow Pattern X 3 !!!

I’m glad relieved so many of you have craft room issues, too! I swear to you I’ll finish, but not today. My back’s out and even pushing the accelerator to drive my kid to preschool made me wince and curse.

So, Neighbor Kirsten to the rescue!

I’ve mentioned before that some of the best women on Earth live in my neighborhood, right? Remember when I was on TV and a whole bunch of them showed up wearing “CRAPPY FRIEND” shirts?


Pretty great, right?

I want you to meet another one of my neighbors!

This is Kirsten:

The one on the right…obviously. Winking smile

Aside from being one of the happiest and most pleasant people I’ve ever had the privilege of meeting and a SUPER mom of 5, she’s INSANELY talented! Her kitchen cabinets are green and her piano is red. She LOVES fabric and is “semi new-ish” to designing patterns. She also works a little at her (and my) favorite quilt shop, Material Girls, to get her fabric fix in.

Want to see some of her stuff? Of course you do!


And, my personal favorite, her Mongo bag:


I’m leaving this next part in Kirsten’s own words, because it makes me giggle:

I’m giving away 3 “Lucky” burlap pillow patterns (a greenishly embellished burlap pillow, to be exact)–it is a fun and festive pillow that uses burlap, green fabric scraps, torn cream satin, a variety of green buttons, a big blingy dangling gem, and my favorite ginormous green pom-pom trim. (Any excuse to use what may be the best fabric of all time, the Amy Butler geen dot, has got to be a good thing.)


Kirsten is giving away THREE patterns to make her LUCKY pillow.


These are actual paper patterns, which will be mailed to you. So, for that reason we’re keeping it brief (actual giveaway end date will be plugged in here once I confirm with Kirsten) and US residents only, please.


Click on over to Kirsten’s (work in progress, she’d like you to know) site, Pieceable Pear and have a look around. Come back and leave a comment on this post saying which of her patterns is your favorite.

That’s it!

Ready? Set? Go!

If you want to buy the pattern ($6) or a kit to make the pattern ($28), you can pick that up locally at Material Girls, along with burlap, jumbo ric-rac and pom-pom trim, giant flower buttons, and all other manner of fabulousness.

And, $50 value giveaway that EVERY single one of you can use coming your way tomorrow.

    The trick or treat pillow! But that bib is cute too. And that Mongo bag is fantastic, although I doubt I could ever do that.

    Mongo Flower Carry All Pattern.. is sooo my favorite! I make bags, totes, etc for a charity. I use patterns like these to make these items, sell for a donation, and doante to a foundation each month for people suffering from a brain malformation called Chiari Malformation. I just started my own blog too.
