Handmade Halloween Giveaway w/ Review!



**********THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED**********

Ok, so if you read THIS REVIEW you already know that I'm a fan of YouCanMakeThis.com. They have all kinds of things that you can make with lots of easy to follow instructions and tutorials. And it's not just sewing! They also have, jewelry and beading, cooking and baking, and even photography projects! And you have to love companies that offer FREEBIES!

They sent me their e-book, Fancy Filled Sewn Tutu to review, which includes:
11 pages of instruction,
32 step-by-step diagrams/photographs, and
40 Tutu Recipes!



The very first thing that I want to say about this ebook (and all the others I've seen), is that they have a pic for literally every step. No second guessing on what they might mean in the instructions. They have the visual of what it should look like or what you should be doing right there to go along with it.

The directions are simple and easy to follow, and I loved the "recipes" that they included to make all of the tutus you could want for anything from St. Patrick's Day to just letting the kids have fun dressing up.



And guess what! Not only are they offering this same e-book for one reader to win, but a $50 bundle of Halloween downloads!!!

The winner will get:
Fancy Filled Tutu with Bonus 40 Tutu "Recipes",
Pumpkin Polly Patterns,
Paper Piecing Project:Pumpkin Patch Pillow,
Frayed Applique: Too Cute to Spook!,
Little Miss Spider Applique Patterns,
How to Applique the Easy Way,
Hocus Pocus Patterns, and
Just a Little Something for a Happy Halloween Table Runner.

Wow!!! You'll have everything you need to make an awesome Handmade Halloween!!!

I love their pattern to make a picture frame from old soda/tin cans. Such a great recycling idea.
