Giveaway Day with Sew Mama Sew


Welcome to MommySaidSew.com. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I live in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. Give me a shout out in the comments if you're in Chicago! I am a mom to two girls ages 2 and 4. I stay home with them and during nap time I sew. I mostly sew clothing for little girls, but lately I've been making things for myself. I've been a lover of scarves since before I could sew, but now that I can sew and crochet, my scarf collection has grown. Now onto my Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway... the item I have for you to win is a voile circle scarf.

I love working with voile. It's 100% cotton and it's light weight and so soft and silky. It makes a lovely scarf. This one is shown doubled around in the picture above and can also be worn long as pictured below. I fell in love with this fabric when I found it at Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL. I have LOTS of it :)


To enter to win this brand new voile circle scarf, please leave a comment on this blog posting letting me know about your favorite scarf. Is it knit, crocheted, sewn? Did you make it, but it or was it given to you as a gift? Leave your email address in the comment and I'll contact the winner after the contest closes on December 16 at 5 p.m. PST. USA entries only.

Thanks for visiting, I'd love for you to stay a while and comment on my other postings or plan to come back again and read more about what I've been sewing.  Cheers!

Congrats to the giveaway winner JennaZ! And thank you for all your comments. I hope you stop back by my sewing blog from time to time to see what I've been making.

The scarf I wear all the time, right now, I found in a parking lot; yes, I washed it before wearing. =) It is brown and snug to my throat, secures with two magnetic clasps.
Your giveaway is beautiful and would easily replace my current fav.

Gorgeous! My favorite scarf is one that I found at the thrift store in the home accessories section - orange and huge, so maybe not intended for wear, but I LOVE it! Thanks for posting a giveaway!

My favorite scarf is one that I purchased on our honeymoon in Bermuda. A strange purchase to make in the middle of August, but it has such beautiful colors in it, I couldn't pass it up!

Crossing my fingers.

My favorite scarf (which I am currently wearing) is a mauve/purple color, woven, and a gift from Kenya that my cousin brought back after working there. It's super soft and warm, and SO versatile. My cousin even used it as a baby carrier!

Alyssa said...

Sooo pretty!
My favorite scarf (right now, in winter)is one my grandma knit me out of hand dyed sock yarn with a lovely ruffle on the ends.

Holly said...

This is beautiful! I just finished making nine scarves, similar in style to yours but made out of different jersey knits. My favorite was one made out of organic bamboo... sooo soft. But since they're all gifts to be given away, I'd love to win yours for myself!

H2Ogirl said...

Wow. . what a lovely blog you have! I am excited to follow you and glean from your posts! I knitted myself a cowl (which I've yet to blog about) from handspun green yarn. It's fun to wear something I've made.

MeganAnne said...

I love a blue basket knit scarf I got in a swap. It's in the softest yarn and a beautiful color

Cinnamon said...

Love your version of a scarf. My favorite, at the moment, is the gray cowl with a shawl collar that I knit myself. Thanks for hosting!

My favorite scarf is one I bought in Berlin. Lots of memories :)

Tiffany said...

I don't have a favorite! I have a couple scarves that I switch around during the winter season, but no favorite as yet. I crochet and sew also, but have yet to make myself a scarf! What a concept...

Sangeetha said...

Alice said...

My current favorite scarf is an old one of my grandmother's; it's massive and beautifully embroidered with floral designs.

Thanks so much for doing this giveaway!

♥Duff said...

My favorite scarf is a lovely light, muted blue cashmere knitted scarf form an Etsy seller--the best $ I've sent in a long time!
p.s. I'm going to have to hit Vogue fabrics if they have beauties like this! thanks for the heads up!

Sincerely, Sara said...

My favorite scarf changes all the time--I'm a bit of a scarf hopper! But right now, I am wearing a knit cowl that is super cozy.

deserae said...

My favorite scarf right now is a purple tshift infinity scarf! I love it!

Julie said...

My favorite scarf is my white kid silk creation scarf- it looks and feels like a very warm cloud.

Jenna Z said...

It's getting chilly so right now my favorite scarf is fleece. I recently got a much shorter haircut than I've ever had and I need MORE scarves to keep my neck warm, even indoors!

Sarah said...

My favorite scarf was given to me for Christmas by my boss at my old job. It's sort of silk like, and was hand dyed and has sequins. I think he got it at a fair trade import store. I get SO many compliments on it.

Lisa said...

My favorite scarf is actually around my neck right this minute. My mom crocheted it. It's a really thick and chunky knit infinity scarf in a beautiful opulent purple! It's so warm and soft.

My favorite scarf was knit by me while I was in high school. It's not all crazy or anything, it just goes with everything. It's a super long skinny scarf that is slightly ribbed. It's super soft and a bit chunky. It's great to cuddle up around my neck a few times.

java diva said...

My favorite scarf was crocheted by a friend at my MOPS table in my favorite color and super soft yarn. It is rather holey, like a waffle almost.

The Monkey's Mama said...

Heather said...

My favorite is a crocheted scarf my sister made for me...second is a knit one I made.

Lynn said...

Amy B said...

My favorite scarf is patchwork cotton on one side and fleece on the other. I made it last year as a prototype for the one I made my best friend. It felt like we were back in high school with out matching scarves! akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

wooLynn said...

My favorite scarf is one I knit when I was first learning...it has three different stitch patterns...kind of like a sampler. Thanks for the giveaway! I am not in Chicago but I have visited...stopped in a bar in Logan Square that had pretty good beer.

Fab said...

I wear scarfs almost everyday, my favorite is an infinity scarf I knitted last year. Thanks for the chance, I really like your scarf.

OhioMomPatriot said...

My daughter crocheted a scarf for me, in my favorite color orange, a couple of years ago and it is my favorite. Thank you for a sweet giveaway!

Katie said...

I knit a lot of my scarves. My favorite is a DNA scarf (cause I'm a huge science nerd).

The Hungry Crafter said...

I love scarves! My favorite one right now is one I bought -- it's a super chunky woven scarf from Peru, and it's big enough to double as a wrap when I get chilly at work!
