Holiday PJ's and Silhouette Portrait Giveaway (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

Hey, have you missed me?  Earlier this month I traded in my late night sewing sessions for 6 AM workouts, so there hasn't been a whole lot going on in the creative front.  But now it is holiday crunch time, and I need to get back in the swing of things!

To start, I am making coordinating Christmas pj's for the kids (Oscar is pretty excited about it - can you tell?).  For the fabric I used one of my favorite knits, Laguna Stretch Cotton Jersey.  For patterns I used my fall-backs, Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee and altered Lil Blue Boo's Leggings.


The jammies are pretty cute just plain, but to make them even more festive I added a simple Christmas tree design using Silhouette's Flocked Heat Transfer material*.   I love the heat transfer - it is easy to use, looks really professional, and lasts a long time!  I made Jared a t-shirt with the heat transfer two Christmases ago, and it still looks great.


As you know, Black Friday will shortly be upon us, and Silhouette is gearing up for some amazing deals during their Black Friday Week (November 23rd-30th).  I can't tell you what the discounts are yet, but if you've been waiting to buy, these are the best deals around.  Stay tuned for Friday!

And now ... for the giveaway.  Today I'm giving away the very new, very adorable (and more affordable), Silhouette Portrait!

See it in action at Silhouette America's YouTube channel, or check out the Cameo/Portrait side-by-side comparison.

  • For a chance to win a Silhouette Portrait, simply leave a comment.  Feel free to say anything, but I'd especially love to hear about how you'd use a Silhouette machine to create holiday gifts (we all need more ideas, right?).
  • Anonymous comments will be ignored.  Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you're the winner!
  • This giveaway is open until midnight, November 22nd, and a winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Friday, November 23rd.  The giveaway and Black Friday promotions are good only for US residents (so sorry, international friends!).
*disclosure:  Silhouette provided the flocked heat transfer for my holiday pj project.

I'd make gifts for my family -- probably name signs to start or something that the kids would like. It would really make things much easier to make gifts this year.

I have been eyeing a Silhouette but haven't been able to justify the expense yet. The family keeps growing, so I try to make as many Christmas gifts as I can. This year I'm making applique shirts and onesies for all the nieces and nephews. A Silhouette would make the cutting process so much quicker - and probably look nicer too!

I've been dreaming of a silhouette for years, its just completely out of my budget with hubby in graduate school. I would use it first to re-vamp and label everything in my kitchen.

Lovely holiday PJs! I would make graphic tees with the Silhouette, and would be so excited to win.

Mariel said...

I dream about the Silhouette and hope that someday I will have dropped enough hints that one will magically appear at my door. One of my least favorite things about sewing is cutting, and somehow my rotary cutter always seems to find a finger. So this would make my life so much easier and so much more fun.

D said...

I would use my first project to make a Christmas table cloth. I've never ,ever used one of these, but I would love to have one to get started on amazing little projects. Thank you
