You can Make This Review/Giveaway
Posted by aaensons at 10:55 AM
You Can Make This is an award-winning website that offers a vast selection of sewing and crafting ebooks. There are also books for cooking, woodworking, digital scrapbooking, and much more and they are wonderful.
I do enjoy doing simple sewing projects and crafts during my spare time which is far and few between, before we had our son I had more time for these types of things. I was both happy and sad to receive the chance to review this ebook for making personalized name pillows. I was very happy to get this review to do because it is something that is fun and I have been wanting to do.
What I thought about this ebook from www.YouCanMakeThis.com:
The step-by-step instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and also anyone could do this.
I like that the ebook comes with the patterns for the letters. Yes, it would be easy to draw your own, but having the patterns makes all your letters consistent in style, shape, and size.
This does require a sewing machine and the basic knowledge of how to operate one.
I am going to be making a lot of these pillows for my son, stepdaughter, 12 brothers and sisters, two nieces and three nephews and I might even make some for my mom, dad, stepmom, stepdad my and my hubby we will see how much time and energy I have when I get the sewing machine serviced so that I can get busy on these.
If you are curious about the products at You Can Make This, then I encourage you to check out their free ebooks. There are lots of fun projects there and they are free to download!
What you can win:
The prize for this contest is a PDF version of the Personalized Name Pillow eBook, complete with instructions, patterns, and color photos. There will be 2 winners for this contest.
The winners will need to download the book themselves and print off the ebook. It is worth it. Open to anyone in the world.
