You Can Make This - Halloween Giveaway

I've always been envious of crafty people - you know, the ones who can create something out of nothing, make their own clothes, and whip up a Halloween costume in a matter of minutes. The only thing I've even sewn are the ribbons on my pointe shoes. There's this really neat site, however called You Can Make This. The site is dedicated to helping people (crafty or non-crafty like me) enjoy the creative process of making something yourself. For a reasonable fee, you can purchase step-by-step detailed guides to download for fun DIY projects in a wide variety of categories. You can make anything from dolls and toys, hair accessories, jewelry, pillows, and so much more! The Halloween section is equally impressive so be sure to check it out. I received the Fancy Filled Tutu e-book to review and while I haven't had a chance to actually make it yet I do believe I can! The directions really are straight forward and simple to understand and I'm looking forward to making my first project.

WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a fabulous $50 bundle of Halloween downloads. The bundle includes the following e-books:

  • Fancy Filled Tutu with Bonus 40 Tutu "Recipes"

  • Pumpkin Polly Patterns

  • Paper Piercing Project: Pumpkin Patch Pillow

  • Frayed Applique - Too Cute to Spook!

  • Little Miss Spider Applique Patterns

  • How to Applique the Easy Way

  • Hocus Pocus Patterns

  • Just a Little Something for a Happy Halloween Table Runner

  • To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Monday, October 26th at Midnight and tell me what Halloween costumes you're using this year. Please include your email address with your comment. Contest open to participants worldwide.
