Give Away! NOW CLOSED

I'm joining in on the fun with SewMamaSew's big Giveaway Day. Go here for a list of all your chances to win great handmade items or supplies.

Now, for my contribution.

Meet the Hopefull Hexagon Pillow. I want to keep this thing. It makes my thirty-year-old chocolate brown couch seem almost cool. It will make your couch look cool too. (couch?, sofa?, whatever you call it. I'm from Canada)
So all you need to do is comment, of course. If you say something interesting, that's wonderful. If you say something nice, that's great too. Or if you're like me and have a hard time thinking up original comments, just say 'nice pillow', or 'ugly pillow' or tell me your current favorite fabric. I'm thinking if you showed up here from SewMamaSew you've got to be a fellow fabric junkie! And I love hearing about other's fave fabric lines.
You're welcome to enter from anywhere in the world. The giveaway will be open till May 20 and the winner will be chosen randomly. I will ship by May 24. I am giving away the pillow cover only. It fits a standard 16" form which can be found at craft stores.

There. I think I followed all the rules and stated all necessary requirements.

Now go pad your chair with lots of soft pillows cause your butts gonna get sore sitting at the computer for hours checking out all the giveaways. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

  127. I am considering slipcovers for my couches and right now, plain old chocolate brown with that cutie pillow on it sounds perfect! I love the red and blue plaid pattern I have on the couches--what I don't love is the constant proof that I have two small children living here with me... So if I were to win the pillow--maybe that would make the decision on slipcovers for me too! ;)
