[CLOSED] Book Giveaway: Heart-Felt Holidays & Baby Times

Baby Times by Abby Lane Quilts.


We’re giving away both Heart-Felt Holiday by Kathy Sheldon & Amanda Carestio (Lark Crafts, 2012) AND Baby Times by Abbey Lane Quilts (Stash Books, 2012). These new books feature lots of adorable gift and accessory projects.


This book has 40 festive projects to celebrate each season. The projects range from a pirate eye patch for Halloween to decorative spring-time garland. They are fast and simple to make with step-by-step instructions and templates. Some projects are even no-sew so kids can help with these cute creations.


Packed with everything the modern baby (and mom) needs, this book is separated into occasions: party time, home time, go time, dress-up time, and of course, play time. The designs are creative and imaginative, yet practical. With such a variety of projects, and the option of colorful fabrics, your baby and you will be very stylish.


Comment below telling us why you’d like to win Heart-Felt Holiday and Baby Times. Leave your post prior to the deadline–11:59 pm EST, June 15, 2012–and you could win a copy of these books. The winner will be randomly selected and announced (and notified via email) during the week of June 18th.

    Well I'd love to sew some felt projects for little ones but truth is, I love cute stuff myself, so I'm more interested in making my home more eclectic :)

    Hi,I work with a group of dis-advantaged men and women in South Africa. They are all self taught knitters and some have a really keen interest in sewing! These books would make a SUPER addition to our small library and would help keep the inspiration and moral up! We also love felt but need ideas on what to do. thanks for the competition :)

    I know I'm not a mother yet, but i just discovered the wonderful world of sewing and i would loooove to have some cute patterns to make for my friend's children. Repetiton is the mother of skill ! Why not to start from now ?

    Thank you !

    After a family of boys, although I did sew lots for them, I'm delighted to have a granddaughter to sew for. I'm enjoying the fun of books like these I borrow from the library. How I'd love have my very own.

    I had my first born about 6 months back & I can't wait to sew clothes for her. I really wish I could win them.

  19. Chanzy | | #19

    I don't have any babies to sew for but love sewing for them because it's a quick project and always so colorful. I am always making baby things and giving them away to friends, friends of friends and even at the local small town hospital.
    I'm sure there is lots of inspiration to be had from both of these.

  20. diamondgirlz | | #20

    I would love to have these books! Seems like a baby bonanza in my family--all the nieces and nephews have started their families, so I'm going to be busy sewing lots of cute little projects!
