Giveaway Time!


shark pouchIt’s time again for a Sew Mama Sew giveaway. I’m offering a copy of my new e-pattern for a Shark Week Pouch.

Gals, we used to call that time of the month a “visit from Aunt Flo.” Remember? Well, I recently found out the youngin’s are calling it Shark Week. Too funny.

I started to envision this cheeky tampon holder…then I found out about AfriPads, an organization that helps meet feminine hygiene needs in Africa. Blammo–it all came together!

So, now when people purchase the pattern on Craftsy, I donate to AfriPads.

Want to win?Β Leave me a comment below with what color shark pouch you would make. I’ll pick a random name after 5 p.m. PST on Sunday, May 10 and announce the winner here.

Thanks and Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there.

  1. So cute! A bright red shark would be fun πŸ˜‰

  2. This is such a cute and funny idea! I think I would make mine in greys to make it look closer to reality, so like yours. By the way, between us colleagues at work we always call it the Red October lol!
    Many thanks for your giveaway!

  3. I’d make a blue one.

  4. I would make a blue one!

  5. hahaha one of my guy friends actually made up a song about shark week
    I’d love to make some in lots of colors!

  6. oh man this is perfectly fantastic! i’d make it in a shark-like color: black or grey, and then for kicks in maybe lime green or aqua!

  7. I want to make a navy blue one πŸ˜€

  8. I would use shark like colors similar to yours. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Interesting how we all called it something different – for me when I was young it was The Dot. I can see the mirror ball dot fabrics working these!!

  10. This is cute. I needed a purple shark

  11. I would make a dark grey or rainbow colored one.

  12. These would be great gifts for both my grown daughters that always have them falling out of their purses. I would make them blue. Great giveaway thanks!

  13. I love it! SOO funny! I think I would make a grey one like you BUT I would paint some of the teeth red!

  14. I’m thinking the grey shark would be so great! I actually know a little man who would be collecting rocks in a pouch like this! haha!

  15. I believe I would make it blue.

  16. well grey of course πŸ™‚ very fun. And I’m looking forwards to the discovery channels shark week this summer.

  17. What a beautiful thing to give to such important work in Africa. My mum, sister and I keep getting involved in new projects (we can’t help ourselves). Bras for women who can neither afford nor obtain them (did you know there are places where you can not buy a bra or if you can it is more than a years wage for an average person in that area), crochet reusable bandages for leppers (there are still people suffering from Leprosy in the world), knitted bennies and jumpers for orphans and poor children, rehoming knitted school jumpers in Africa (where children have such pride in a “Uniform” to wear to school), All sorts of special projects we hear about from missionaries and aid workers. My favourite and my special skill is Dolls (simple dolls for children who may never otherwise own anything just for themselves in their whole life).
    I think I would make a grey shark (maybe with purple features as that is my daughters favourite colour)

  18. I would make it grey for sure!

  19. Probably blue–I’d make it up for a teacher at my kids’ school–their mascot is the sharks!

  20. I think I would make one in gray and white for my sister whose favorite animal is the Great White.

  21. Too cute! πŸ™‚ I would probably make it blue or gray.

  22. Too cute, and a great cause! I could see this as a pouch for so many things. Probably in grey, for optimal sharkiness.

  23. I would make an orange one!

  24. I would make it in purple and green–my 2 favorite colors!

  26. Michelle Smith–you are the winner!
    I’ll send you an email. Thanks to everyone for your awesome suggestions. Have a wonderful week!
