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.

This is so great. Thanks! I do a lot of appliqué tees for my kids and my nieces, but using fabric takes a lot of time. I would love to try it on the silhouette. Also it's perfect for making Christmas garlands, and cards.

I've wanted a Silhouette for some now, and to finally have one would be such a huge blessing! My first project would be to use the Silhouette to cut fabric shapes. I'd like to make quilts, for my two daughters, out of my Mama's old clothing. Mom died nearly 2 years ago, and I want the girls to have something to remember her by. I'd also love to cut vinyl to complete some cute Christmas glass bottles I'm working on as gifts. Thanks for this chance to win!

If I was the lucky winner, the first thing I would make would be a thank you card for my husband. After I had a stroke earlier this year at only age 43, he has been more than amazing, and today I am thankful for him.
