Earth Day Giveaway - Ruffled rose pillow


Welcome to my second giveaway. In honor of Earth Day, we'll be giving way the ruffled rose pillow I made from a bridesmaid dress.

As my regular readers know, every day is pretty much Earth Day at this blog. I'm all about reusing what I've got rather than buying new. This is somewhat to save the planet but more so to save a buck. And I just dislike waste in general.

Anyway, first a disclaimer. This an upcycled product from a hack seamstress. The center of the pillow turned out weird, and the seams were done with black thread since I had no hot pink. And the pillow is a bit lumpy. So if you win, don't be critical.

To enter, leave a comment here. For an extra chance, leave a comment at my how-to tutorial over at examiner.com. Feel free to tweet your heart out. (Although, statistically, it will dimish your chances of winning.)

In other news, Chadwicks is having a 41% off sale for Earth Day. With promo code CH41, you get 41% off one item until midnight tonight. I have dibs on the white slingbacks.

  3. i've saved your tutorial with the intention of making this myself ,so i'm not quite sure I want to win it but it'd be one less thing on the to do list if i did.
    Chadwicks is a famous hardware/builders providers store in ireland and it was quite alarming to hear they had a special offer in slingbacks !!
