YCMT Review & Giveaway!! My First Review!!





I was asked by Courtney from You Can Make This if I would like to do a Review & Giveaway of one of their sites favorite eBooks "Personalized Name Pillows" by Kimberbell Kids. Well this was an easy answer for me because I already own and love this eBook! The pattern is simple, the directions are fantastic and easy to follow. You don't even need an embroidery machine to make it, you use your sewing machine on the zig zag stitch and your set! One of my most favorite things about the pattern is all the step by step pictures. I am a visual type of person so anything with great pictures piques my interest and keeps me motivated. This is truly a great pattern for any sewing level and they are just so darn cute!

YCMT is going to giveaway TWO of the pillow eBooks here on my blog. You can get 3 entries by doing the following:

1) Leave a comment telling me who you would make your very first pillow for.
2) Follow Me and then leave another comment.
3) Blog about this Giveaway and link back to me. Then comment again so I can check out your site too.

Winners will be picked by RANDOM.org on Friday May 1st and posted Saturday May 2nd.

Hi there, 'tattoo loving, Harley riding, coffee via i.v. drip, could not love my life more, mommy of two outstanding girls and wife to your handsome, loving and supportive United States Marine', DARLING! I just loved your profile. Too cute!

This is a WONDERFUL post/giveaway. Sounds like so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving a comment! That was very sweet of you!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Love,
Taryn

First, I wouldn't make it, my daughter would :) She is 17 and loves to sew. She's always making gifts for family and friends and I know she and her sisters would love to have this as a project. OK, I'll help too :)

We would love to make these personalized pillows for their little cousins who are 5 and 6 years old.
