Giveaway: The Little Gentleman’s Closet

As a mom of mostly boys, I love to see other moms of boys come up with stuff to sew for them.  Let me introduce you to Michelle, who is one of those moms.  She’s the force behind The Little Gentleman’s Closet.
The Little Gentleman’s Closet is full of darling ties and bowties for little boys.
(Those 2 pics make me WAY happier than they should.)
Michelle also sells patterns for both neckties and bowties.  If you’re a super dorky matchy matchy mom like myself (see here), you will freaking love this!
I’ll be reviewing the necktie pattern later this week, so watch for that.
What’s in it for you?
Michelle is giving 2 lucky Crap I’ve Made readers a copy of one of her patterns.

Michelle’s headed out of town at the end of the week, so we’re closing this on Friday the 15th at noon MST.  That’ll give you time to get the pattern (PDF) and make your ties for Easter, if you’re so inclined.
