february giveaway - win an embroidery pattern and two pin brooches!

It is that time of month again... as in giveaway time! A bit of a twist to this month's giveaway too... there are three opportunities to win, since all good things do happen in threes right? I am such a fan of Sublime Stitching, that I decided to offer three of their awesome iron-on craftopia patterns as a thanks to all my readers and followers. And to add a Cabin + Cub touch to the prizes, each pattern will also come with two cute 1" patterned button brooches made by yours truly.

Enter to win by posting a comment telling me what your favourite craft tool or material is... maybe it is your trusty glue gun (or perhaps you are really hardcore and also have a glue gun with matching holster), or do you cherish your knitting needles, or perhaps you are a little too addicted to your bedazzler... let me know! Post your comment and you could be one of three winners!

A random draw will be made next Wednesday (February 23rd), so check back to see if you win! Please remember to include some sort of contact info (etsy shop, blog, website, or e.mail address) and please only one entry per person. Good luck!

I love my spring open scissors, not sure who made them. I'm pretty sure they're Fischer or something lol. I haven't sewn in a year, can't wait to have no dogs so I can start again :)

My favourite would be my sewing machine too.
It's an old Sterling with character and charm and I love it!

Love the giveaway! Thanks!

Richelle said...

Oo, so hard to choose! Probably a three way tie between modge podge, yarn and sewing needles!

My embroidery scissors! The metal handles have a swirly purple/blue/red finish, and they're so pretty sometimes I stop what I'm doing just to stare at them...

Sad, I know!

Tsuki aka LittleGrayFox said...

Ooh I love their patterns!

My favorite tool is probably my embroidery thread. I have practically every color, it's really quite ridiculous!!!

I love paint. Paint, paint, and more paint. It can be so transformative and it's one of the cheapest ways to breathe new life into something.

Laura said...

I think my favourite craft tool is my tape runner by Scrapbook Adhesives. It's easy to use and the right amount of sticky.
Thanks for the giveaways! The buttons are super cute.

Amy said...

Ooo, that's a tricky one. It's pretty boring but I couldn't live without my little book of sewing needles. It's a vintage brown leather book-like case that fastens with a tarnished brass popper, it opens out to white cotton 'leaves' that you pin the needles through. I have needles of every shape and size and regardless of whether I'm knitting or sewing, at some point I always seem to reach for this little thing!

Oh, love the cute cutton brooches!

My favorite tool is a newbie to my collection, it's a Bail forming pliers by Wubbers, I wub em and wonder how I lived without them. Now I need to buy the other 2 sizes.

Meeling said...

Too cute!
My favorite "tool" by far is my very old and well loves green tailors tape...I've had it forever and I'm lost sewing if I don't have it.

Sara Nicole said...

I currently am equally obsessed with LOVELY yarns/fibers and paper! I seriously have an addiction!

Favorite craft tool.... that would probably have to be my set of mini pliers. They have lots of uses and to top it off they are just darn cute!

Karina Wetzel said...

It is so hard to choose a favorite tool... I think that I'll go with my plotter that I use to cut my vinyl :)

Awesome giveaway!

She Can't Decide said...

Oh it HAS to be my sewing machine. It comes in handy so often, whether I want to sew a pot holder or hem a skirt or stitch wall paper samples to make a business card holder!

My favorite tool would be washi tape!! They come in many different patterns and colors but I love those simple polka dots or lines with pastel tones!! I wish I could buy a whole lot basket of them! XD

tattytiara said...

Here you are! I kind of lost track of your blog but never forgot about it, and when I saw your comment on AMIDesigns' blog I had to stop by and say hello. Left a comment on your entry with the photos of that incredibly handsome young man, too.

Chrisy said...

Oh lordy if only there was a favorite tool...that'd mean that I had some sort of focus...but alas I jump from one genre to another and the favorite depends on the day....

My Life Under the Bus said...

Gaaa to pick only one??? I really enjoy Vintaj jump rings, my glue pen for glitter and book pages for everything from wrapping to artwork.

Holly said...

My favorite craft supply in the whole world is polymer clay. And if I had to choose a tool, I'd say a pair of pliers.

What a fun, crafty giveaway!

My favorite thing is my sewing machine. I would just cease to exist without it. or maybe I would just be really bored and frustrated since I hate hand sewing. ;)

Lody said...

Found your blog at Etsy Success Team.:)

I have a lot of fave tools - but since I'm into so much beadworks lately, I'd say pliers.:)

Katie said...

My favourite material is Fimo!

sylvita said...

hard to decide... so i'm just gonna have to go with my pencil and notebook.. all of my crafts start out with a sketch, so i'd have nothing without those tools!

koralee said...

My circle cutter tool! I had originally written scissors but then I remembered my circle cutter. It makes my life so much easier.

Dana said...

I'm all for hot glue and scissors. An odd but necessary combination considering that I need to break and mend things constantly in art-- in lief as well. Thanks for the opportunity and I'll be following!
