  39. I would love to win this book, so I can participate in you “pattern making draft a long.” I started sewing about a year ago and of course started out with commercial patterns. It didn’t take me long to be irritated with them and want to find a better way. I have been very interested in making my own patterns for sometime and just didn’t know where to start. Hope I get the chance to join you.

  40. I have been a follower of yours for a little while now. Love your blog. I have learned so much since following you.

  41. Tweeted and posted on facebook about the giveaway.

  42. I follow you by email and love your blog!

  43. I follow you on facebook. Thanks for the chance to win this book. I used to design my own when I was younger but got away from it. This sounds exciting!

  44. Would love to have a copy of this book. I’m always looking for inspiration for new projects.

  45. I’m following as Renee G on gFC

  46. I would love to have a copy of this book. Even though I have been sewing for about 50 years I have just started making up my own patterns. Wish I had known about this years ago!

  47. I posted this on my FB page, here’s hopin’ I win.

  48. Looks like a terrific book….I would absolutely love a copy! :-) . Now I just have to figure out how to the other links and posts to better my odds of winning! Kellene

  51. I liked you on FB a long time ago :o )

  52. I don’t have a Twitter account so can’t tweet but I’ve added your blog to my Feeds! Yes, I’m really trying to win!

  53. Love, love love! the origami shirt sleeves… I am completely INTO details in clothing.. so tired of the mass produced blandness of retail stores! And how danged cute is that brown jumper with the turkey tail in your linky party! And I DESPERATELY NEED that pattern making book! Hope I win it, it would be the first thing I have EVER won in any sort of drawing giveaway!

  54. Thanks you for hosting this giveaway. I’ve loved that book ever since I checked it out from the library! Now you may think I’m crazy, and I would like you on FB but I swore off FB until after the election is over. I just couldn’t stand the false facts and other’s crazy rants and opinions. And I’m sicking to my guns! I’ll take my chances with one entry.

  55. Lots of great ideas here! Awesome giveaway too! I have taken up an interest in pattern-making recently. I even got a lesson from a local fashion designer… but it was in Spanish and mine is not so great (um, barely there?) so it was a bit overwhelming. I have been looking into books (in English!)to help me along but haven’t purchased any yet. Now I am thinking this one would be a great one!

  56. I have been tinkering with patterns but haven’t made my own. I would love to try it out if I won!
