A Heart for Girls' Contest!!

I believe that we should start the New Year off with a contest!!  We all know that February is the month of Love, Hearts and Romance.  And I also know that many of you have a heart for children... for the little girls around the world that may never have a new dress unless you make it...

So lets combine hearts and dresses... for this contest you need to make a dress with at least one heart on it... it could be heart fabric or a heart pocket or maybe heart buttons... be creative.  You have until Heart Day, February 14th to mail your dress to me or give me your dress.  I will keep the dresses and they will go out with an organization delivering dresses to girls in need.  I will post pictures of all the heart dresses and the winner or winners will be chosen at random.  If we have 10 entries there will be 1 winner... if we have 20 entries there will be 2 winners and so on.

Here are my ideas...not entries but my inspiration for this contest...


or a little more subtle...


Do you see the heart on the t-shirt?

Now for prizes...
Each winner will win their choice of 
a box of fabrics to sew dresses (including the pattern)
or a box of trims and bias tape
 or a dress kit with everything you need to make one dress 
(the tube, the elastic, the bias tape, the trim and the pattern)

I cannot wait to see your creations!

Love it!! So fun! I am actually making a Valentine Dress today for the local craft store to display and then I will get it back to donate to DAG. Can't wait to see all of the great dresses that come in--I love your blue "tumbling heart" one. You truly have a heart for girls.

I'm thinking on it :-). Just told my daughter a few minutes ago I was figuring out a heart themed one. BTW, I am making scallops on the one for the shop--first time I have done that and I saw that on your blog and that is what gave me the idea.

Sure will do this!! Thanks!! Can we send you more than one dress for the contest?? I will probably send you more anyway b/c I have some dresses already made up that can be donated.

Suzanne said...

Yes you are welcome to send more than one dress. Just remember each must involve hearts!

I am making a dress for the contest. When is the deadline?

Suzanne said...

You have until February 14th to mail it or hand deliver it to me

Suzanne, this is a great idea! DAG Maryville is sewing again on the 23rd...should each person attach their name /address on the dress they make so you will know for the drawing?

Suzanne said...

Yes Please do attach name, address and email to the dresses

Cheryl said...

It's in the mail :-). SEW FUN!
