Sew Mama Sew Winner!


Amanda from Atlanta, GA, you are the winner of my giveaway! Please check your email for details.

As mentioned before, I have a new giveaway! I received lots of comments on my Bebe Mary Janes and thought it would be a lovely to offer another little giveaway of the PDF and fabric for these sweet little shoes.. You can choose the exact damask print and pink felt shown, or you can choose a color scheme of your own (I'll pick out the fabric). On December 13th, I will announce the winner, and a NEW GIVEAWAY! I've decided to try and actually blog, and have Sundays as my day of giving, to my readers. I have so many things to giveaway, so be on the lookout and play along.

In order to play along, here is what you need to do... Leave me a comment about your absolute favorite pair of shoes you ever owned, and why they were so loved.

I remember my favorite pair of shoes were my black leather Dr. Marten's. These shoes bring back so many memories of my carefree high school years. The best memory was of my father spit shining them so that they looked perfect, since black shoe polish didn't do the job correctly :) I swore that my kids would wear nothing other than Dr. Marten's when I had my own little ones. They haven't worn a pair yet, how silly I was back then!

Please note that only comments with answers to the question asked will be included in the giveaway (not to mention the best answer will most likely win), and only one comment per person. If you would like some extra entries, you can become a follower (2 extra entries), link to me on your lovely blog (5 extra entries), or purchase a little something from my {shop} (7 extra entries) and send me a quick comment to let me know you've done so.

Enjoy!

How funny, I remember a pair of Adidas I got when I was younger. We were on the poor side then, so they were a big deal. I slept with them the day I received them. Children certainly are funny. =)

Guess I am the first to comment. I remember having a pair of light turqoise nikes growing up. I think I liked them because they were the first pair I really picked out for myself.By the way those baby shoes are too cute!!

In high school I had some low-top converse-style shoes in blue plaid. I LOVED THEM. My mom hated them. I wore them until they were frayed on the edges. Then, she said I couldn't wear them anymore, except on Fridays to the Pep Rally. (I don't really understand why, but I didn't question it!)

I've been out of high school almost 15 years and those shoes are still in my closet at home. I won't let my mom get rid of them!

Thanks for the chance to enter!

adore those little damask bebe shoes!

My fave shoes... hmmmm, I must have been about 12 or 13 when I got a pair of tretorns, you remember the tennis shoes with the patterned fabric swoop on the side. How cool was I? Hehehe loved them though, and they were actually comfoy too :)

Hmm...I had a pair of wedge-heeled sandals when I was in Kindergarten. I LOVED those shoes! I always felt so grown up (and so wobbly :)

I couldn't possibly pick only one pair of shoes. You can tell that by looking in my closet. But my favorites would include:
My first pair of black patent mary janes. I remember how pretty I felt wearing them to church with my white lacy socks. Must have been about 4 or 5.
And who could forget their first pair of heels. Mine were white pumps--probably about 6th grade. I remember how grown-up I felt.
At the top of the list though would be a pair of royal blue velvet flip-flops I got when I was 16. A very dear friend rode his bike 4 miles down A1A to a surf-shop to buy them for me for Christmas. Those shoes I still have.

my favourite shoes? do I have to admit that they came out of the dress up box, were 8 sizes too big, hot pink and I couldn't walk in them without tripping? I loved them because they were hot pink! what better reason to love a pair of shoes!

I think my favorite pair of shoes were these cute baby pink platform shoes with little straps across the toes. They made me taller and since my husband is almost a foot taller than me, I wore them under my wedding dress! I have a cute photo of me picking up my wedding dress and showing off my shoes to the photographer. Loved them!
Thanks for the contest!

Oh my gosh, how funny! My favorite were Dr. Marten boots I got my senior year in high school and wore all thru college. I thought I was 'da bomb'- boy was I dumb!!

My favorite shoes are no shoes. I always hated wearing shoes. My dad loves to tell the story of how I played in my piano recital with no shoes on. I was so scared that I was going to trip walking onto stage in those uncomfortable dress shoes that I just took them off right before I went on.
