PINK!! A Giveaway


As promised a giveaway. A giveaway to say "thank you," faithful followers. To celebrate 100 followers I thought a giveaway was in order. Since it took me a few days to get it together there are now 112 followers. So I have included 12 things. I need to hurry and post this before there is 113. Things around here are coming up pink, so I decided to pay homage to that and offer a pink giveaway.

Included in this bonanza of pink is:

Three skeins of soft pink floss.


Two colors of silk ribbon


One card of antique, mother of pearl buttons.


Two and half yards of luscious silk satin ribbon. Warning, Warning: The keeper of your check book will not be happy that you discovered this awesome stuff. You will be reluctant to return to the old stand by Offray. 


Two yards of whipstitch piping in a soft baby pink.


One spool each of DMC 50 weight sewing thread and Madeira Cotona 80 weight thread.


Five yards of eye popping hot pink polka dot grosgrain ribbon. So fun for hairbows. 


And my favorite construction book, Precise and Professional by Lyn Weeks. My copy has dozens of post it page flags. It is my go to book. I must confess that there is some water damage to this book. I originally bought this copy as a gift for my daughter while I was in Lafayette. On the trip home, I misguidedly thought; "I will keep this in my carry on so nothing happens to it."  Well duh, don't carry a drink in your bag with the book when you are trying to board. Her sister was dispatched post haste to buy the last copy available at this shop so I could give it to her for Christmas. You will benefit from my lack of brain power that day.


This book is still very usable and is out of print, so it is very difficult to find. I LOVE this book. I hope you don't mind some crinkly pages, but all of the pages are still clear and none of the print or diagrams were harmed. The technique I use for tee tiny French seams is in here, for piping, tucks  and many other techniques. 

This giveaway has a total value of $65+. Here are the requirements to be entered into this giveaway. 

  • You must be a follower.
  • Post a comment on this post only. No emails, or commenting on other posts will be considered. 
  • Tell me what your favorite pink project has been and for what occasion it was made. 
  • To be entered more than once, post about it on your blog and leave me a link under comments that you did so. 
  • Giveaway ends, March 16th at midnight.
Good luck!!

  2. Martha,
    I love your blog and have been a follower for a while.
    I have lots of pink favorites but one is a dress I made for my grand-daughter with smocking and faggoting and shadow embroidery and lots of roses.
    Thanks for all the wonderful tutorials!

  3. Oh Martha!!! I want that book so much!!! Thank you for the chance!

    But my favorite pink project? Oh my.
    There have been many. I am currently working on a smocked batiste Easter dress for Ahnalin. But it is far from done, so I am not sure if it will be my favorite or not.

    I think my favorite may be the Pink Princess picture smocked dress I made for a client a year ago last November. It was so fun and pretty.
    Thank you again for the chance.

  4. Pretty in Pink is one of my favorite films and colors! Last year I worked on a pink pique toddler dress with a smocked front yoke and embroidered in bullions. Quite lovely! Right now I'm in my "Blue" period. Everything I've worked on has been blue - not by choice buy by chance!

  5. Martha, your giveaway is fabulous! I can think of lots of different beautiful dresses that could be made with all that! But I am really drooling over that book! My favorite pink project is my dd's Easter dress this year. It is made out of dotted swiss with a full smocked bodice and silk ribbon embroidery. I have the picture of it on the top of my blog. I am going there right now to post a link to your giveaway here!

  8. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter loves pink. I'm making her an outfit using two shades of pink. It has pink pants with a print band, and a pink print top with the pink band. The inset is pink and smocked with a couple of shades of pink and two other colors from the print fabric. There's no special occasion. It's just because i love her.

  13. My favorite is the pink dress and lace jacket you made for Caroline last year! :-) Then there are the pink dresses that Judy made for the twins for Easter their first year they were walking.... Those are 2 I can think of now.

    Love you!

  14. My current favorite pink project is a pink Easter doll dress for my granddaughter's American Doll, Kit. It's a long-waisted dress with a lace collar and white satin ribbon belt.

    Thank you so much for all your inspiration and tutorials. I always know where to go for help.

  16. I love pink and I have 2 little girls! Last year I made 2 pink bishop dresses for Easter. It was my first smocking endeavor. The plate was simple but beautiful with pink lazy daisies and pale green leaves. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.

  17. Pink is my favorite! One of my favorite projects was a pair of pink checked bubbles for my "adopted" twin granddaughters, Rachael and Hope. When they were just a couple of months old, I made them a pair of smocked bubbles out of a soft, pink and white checked flannel, with picture smocked bunnies. Now they are 3.5 years old and Hope's favorite color is still "pink, Miss Ellen, just pink."

  20. Oh Martha!!! Who doesn't love pink! Did you know you can iron those book pages....I did it once when my daughter left an opened bottle of glue in her backpack. I literally washed the pages of the book...dried a little with a hairdryer and then, yes....I ironed the pages nice and flat. I also iron my floss when I picture smock :-D

  21. What a nice give away! I hate to mention doll dressing, but my favorite pink project was a frou-frou doll dress for my youngest daughter's American Girl doll.

  22. Oh, I know! I've been sitting here, trying to remember pink...pink....pink. Not much call for pink around here! Remember when my SIL's sister lost her little one, Ava last Christmas? From my hope chest, I pulled out a sweet pink bishop to present to her for Ava's burial. I thank God for inspiring me 10 years ago to dream of another daughter of my own. It was such an honor for me that Ava sleeps eternally in something made with so much love.

  23. Perfectly precious pink bishop for my niece many years ago. I truly can use those pink items since I am working on a number of outfits for a new baby coming to our nephew's house.

  24. Oh, My, Martha! What a lovely giveaway...are you sure you want to part with these delicious ingredients?? And that book...I want. that. book. My favorite pink project was the one I stopped to purchase fabric and pattern for after leaving my OB GYN's office 15 years ago...after the *pink* ultrasound! It was a tiny 3 month sized pink rosebud bishop. I smocked it in pink and soft green and will keep it forever. :)

  25. What a beautifully girly giveaway! Especially for this gal that lives with two boys! I actually did a patchwork pillow for a customer and embroidered her daughter's initials on it. She gave me free reign on design so it was really fun!

  26. I actually already did a post about my favorite pink project-the patchwork pillow. It includes some other fun pink stuff!!

  28. My pink project and probably the only pink projects was a tiny sweet bishop of pink floral print.

    What a great giveaway, Martha! Congrats on all your new followers!

  29. Okay, it has taken a giveaway to go from lurker to follower, but I did have the rss feed going (more reliable for me that the blog dashboard).

    My favorite pink project is easy, (well actually I had two I realized, but with six boys and only two girls at #4 and #5, right when I started home schooling, there haven't been many...). I spent 13 months in Nashville from June '06-July '07 and was introduced to heirloom sewing. I lived around the corner from Trisha Smith (a teacher at Martha Pullen's school) and was fortunate to get an evening of tutoring from her. There I made a newborn size pink batiste heirloom dress and slip in the Children's corner handsewn daygown patterns. It had all kinds of Swiss embroidery trim, I scalloped the edges of the slip, silk ribbon to drawn in the short sleeves...... I couldn't wait to try it on our new baby #7. Well, from the introduction, you already know that I had a boy. I couldn't see storing it in the closet indefinintely until the next girl might come along, as much as I loved looking at it, so I took a few pictures and sent it to my niece who was born five days before my son. It has since been worn by her little sister and another niece/cousin. I don't know if I'll ever get a chance to make another before I am a grandma, but maybe if #9 that is due in July happens to be a girl........

  30. Pink is my favorite color! It is hard to choose a favorite outfit... After three boys, both of my girls had coming home outfits smocked in pink. I think my favorite outfit though is probably Florentine... pink Nelona, sweet bow lace, pink silk satin ribbons...gorgeous if I don't say so myself.

  31. Great giveaway Martha!!! You know, I never really thought much about pink until I had a little girl and she grew up loving it. Everything for her was pink. When she was one year old, I made her my first French sewn dress, slip and bonnet for Easter. It was all made by hand and it took me 6 weeks to complete. It was pink, of course.
    This past Sunday, her own little daughter wore that dress to church. My heart almost burst!!!

  33. What a beautiful gift! My favorite pink project ever was a pink dotted swiss 24 row pink & pearl smocked dress with a heirloom joined lace yoke overlay and contrast wide voile hem that was the next-to-the-last Easter dress I made for Felicia before she got tired of mom's ideas. After Easter I soaked it in Biz to get out a stain, and *all* of the pink washed out of the dots. It was so sad!

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a wonderful giveaway! My favorite pink is the third garment that I ever smocked-- pink sundress for my older daughter who was about 10. And that was almost 30 years ago!

    My next favorite would be a pink and white Frannie by Lyn Weeks that I made for my granddaughter.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great giveaway, Martha. My favorite pink is the pink gingham dress and coat I made for my daughter many years ago. It was very cute and I entered it in the county fair that year. Didn't win anything except the fun of making it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is such a lovely giveaway :)

    My favourite pink project actually isn't finished as yet. It's my first piece of smocking, ever. The panel was supposed to go into the front of a romper but the little one who is to receive it grew faster than I could smock and the weather is getting too cold for a romper, so I think it will have to become a dress instead. The smocking is complete (mistakes and all) and now I just have to sew up the dress which really shouldn't take too long.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favourite pink project is the bishop dress I just finished for my 18 month old granddaughter. I used a plate from Creative Needle where I took out the center 4 pleats and did a little featherstitching in the unsmocked area. It's my all-time favourite shade of pink, too--ballet pink!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Martha - what a wonderful act of kindness! My favorite pink project so far has been for my granddaughter. When we found out my daughter was going to have a little girl, I immediately went to my stash and started making a little smocked pink bonnet with seed pearl accents. Every little girl needs a pretty pink bonnet!! And to go with the bonnet, I made what we call in my family a "ruffle butt." These are the little diaper covers with ruffles on the back. Of course it had to be pink to match the bonnet. A girl has to be color coordinated! For her first Christmas, I had family portraits made and put a collage together for her mom and dad as a gift. One of the pictures is her grinning ear to ear in her little pink bonnet. That picture makes me smile every time I see it.

  39. New to blogging and smocking and just found your site through "BessieMary". I have always loved pink! Favorite pink project is a dress called "Beautiful Bows" from a class I just took with Judith Adams. Almost done! Now I need a grandchild to put it on!!! One needs to dream. Will be following your blog regularly - thanks

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite pink project was a newborn bishop I made for the baby of our youth pastor and his wife. I smocked it using glass seed beads for accent and smocked a matching bonnet. I loved seeing her wear "my" outfit almost every Sunday until she outgrew it.

    (Martha, I have signed up as a follower but I think it actually signed up under my daughter Emily's Gmail account. When I tried to comment, I realized it was all her info in the identity boxes....not sure how to fix that!)

  42. What a lovely giveaway! And, you already know I love PINK!!! I'm already a follower - so glad I found your blog!

    My favorite pink project was a dress I made for the Martha Pullen Sewing Market last year. It's on my blog. Had so much fun making it because I got to sew with batiste and lace!

    Thanks so much - have a great weekend - and tell your son Happy Birthday for us!

  43. Oh that is all too beautiful. I just adore little ones in pink!!! Love the whip stitch trim. My favorite pink item I made was a bed jacket for my Mom. Outside was satin baby pink & inside like a fleece. I embroidered a fushia stileto high heel shoe on it with a 3D pom pom. She is a shoe-aholic. My great niece of 11 mo would look just precious for her 1st Bday in all this pink in April.
    Thanks 4 sharing

  44. We love pink in this house. My daughter's favorite book is "Pinkalicious". I like to mix pink with other colors when I sew & embroider. My favorite pink dress is a pink batiste dress for my oldest daughter when she was 4. It had french lace on the collar and sleeves. It had silk ribbon embroidery with smocking. I had a hard time with the ribbon embroidery on the smocking, but it came out beautiful to everyone that saw it.

  45. i have been following you in the shadows for a long time as i drool over your precious productions, yearning for the time to do more sewing myself. i love pink, because my mom hated it and never dressed her 4 girls in pink as a result, so i was pink-starved. my first grand daughter is due next week. :) my fave pink project was a baby crib pillow, where i used my new found heirloom hand sewing skills of great variety. it just pleases me to look at it. :)
    i hope you pick me for the pink pretties <3 thanks

  46. I am so excited! I have been following your blog for a while but never added myself...how silly. I am very interested in smocking and have started some hand embroidery. I have a 2yr old beauty of a daughter and I can't wait to make pretty pieces for her following your blog.

  47. I've been talking about your pink giveaway for 2 days but am just now getting around to commenting. It's such a nice way to celebrate.

    I had a hard time thinking of my favorite pink item, but it has to be the Princess Priya dress from Australian Smocking & Embroidery (#55). I had just learned all these skills, and it brought everything together as kind of a sampler and gave me a lot of satisfaction.

    Pictures of the dress and comments about the giveaway on my blog: http://keepingitgoinginalabama.blogspot.com/2010/03/pink-celebration-with-princess-priya.html.

    You have a lot of pink ahead of you! It will be fun to see what else you come up with.

  51. Lovin' all that pink!! I couldn't get my daughter to even think about wearing pink until she was high school age. But now I get to sew for her daughter, our first grandbaby. She had a whole tote full of handmades before she was born.
    The favorite thing I've made lately was a pink linen embroidered daydress for my granddaughter, Raegan. She looked so cute in it, but has already outgrown it.
    I'm making a lavender smocked dress for her for Easter, she'll be 10 1/2 months old. I can't wait to see her in it. But, all those beautiful pink trims - I have some white and blue linen that they would look beautiful with! Enjoying your blog!

  53. Great site! Great giveaway! My favorite pink project is a sundress made for my darling granddaughter. The occasion was at Michie Moonie's class at Martha Pullen's School.

  54. Martha, what a wonderful treasure of gifts; if you pull my name, I'll even suggest you keep your gift copy of Lyn's book for someone else who doesn't own it.

    My favorite pink creation was a sundress I made for DGD Amelia 7 or more years ago: a pink sundress using the Kimberly's sundress by Cheryl Lohmann: not for a special occasion, but just because I felt "brave" enough to make it. Her other grandmother selected that dress for her to wear for a portrait of her with her brother -- that's a big compliment,don't you think?

  55. Pink is such a great color for my daughter, so I love making pink outfits for her. I can't say I have a favorite pink project because I always like how they turn out, but one that comes to mind at this moment is a peasant dress with pink frog fabric. Just found your blog and became a follower. Need to do some more browsing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love you blog Martha! My favorite pink thing that I made was a newborn bishop with angel sleeves. It was made from pink window pane fabric. I think that is what it is called. It was for a granddaughter of a friend of mine.

  58. Martha, what a wonderful little giveaway. Your blogs looks very interesting and fun! My favorite pink project had to be the little "take me home" dress I made for a friend. She had a darling little girl when she was 40--and I thought that merited the most beautiful dress for the occasion, petal pink, lace, pleats, and emboridery. It was long, and darling!!! This was one of my few 'adventerous' projects!

  59. My favorite pink project is a shirt I appliqued for my grand daughters second birthday. It has a "2" along with two cupcakes on it.

  60. Pink is my favourite colour! The paler the better. I have just completed my first smocked dress, pink of course. It is for my 2 yr old grand daughter and I loved every second I worked on it.
    Since I am a beginner (as far as smocking) your tutorials have been a wonderful inspiration and gave me the courage to forge ahead. Thank you.

  64. I can't believe I can't think of a pink project off the top of my head. I have three girls--what is wrong with me?! :)

    I did make a hot pink jumper from one of the JoAnn embroidered corduroys that my girls have worn to death. And I made myself a shirt from a heavy dusty-rose fabric that was almost a canvas and embellished it with brown featherstitching. I wish that shirt still fit me; I loved it.

    I can see it's time for me to make something new that's pink. :)

  65. I don't know how to become a follower but do follow you through Google Reader. Your blog is one of the first I read each morning.

    We had our first granddaughter after 17 years 19 months ago. I've made many many pink outfits in the last 19 months and 2 weeks ago, she had a new little sister. So, recently, I made matching OFB dresses for our two precious granddaughters to have their pictures taken together. I fortunately can look forward to many many more pink dresses in the years to come.

  66. Hi again,
    I forgot to mention my favorite pink project. When my first daughter was 2, I made an Ellen Briggs Party Dress from pale pink batiste. The smocking and embroidery were in pastels. My favorite thing about that dress were the unique sleeves, very gathered, but not puffy, and so cute on those little arms. I took lots of pictures of my girls in that dress! Now, I'm having baby #5 (a boy) so I may be thinking "blue" for awhile.

  68. favorite pink project? well...many years ago I purchased a little book called "The Royal Baby Handbook" and in it was a little royal dressed in the sweetest pink coat. It had tucks down the front and buttoned on the side.3 years ago I made one (drafted pattern from a commerical pattern) for my own little princess, my first granddaughter. I just saw the coat this weekend and I am happy to say it was filthy from use by granddaughter #2!!!! It is so good to know they use the things their Noni makes :)Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  69. Hmmm, favorite pink project...hard to pick a favorite with two little girls and a closet full of pink! Probably my favorite was the day gown I brought my 2nd daughter home from the hospital. It was Old Fashioned Baby and made from Pink Satin Batiste. It had ecru embroidery and lace and there was a matching bonnet. It was one of my first times making something a little "fancy". Of course, big sister who was 2 wore a matching smocked yoke dress from pink pique to bring her sister home. The funniest part was that in being the wonderful age of two, she pitched a big temper tantrum trying to get into the car and so there were no pictures of the event. :( Thanks for the wonderful pink give away! How could a basket full of pink not be wonderful!!

  70. Wow. I nearly missed this. What a great give away! I would LOVE anything from you! I will go and put on my sidebar right now. My favorite pink project was one I just finished for my daughter to give for a baby gift. It is baby bibs and burp cloths! For some reason that is what I make now all the time and they always seem to get gone.

  71. I love your blog and pink! My favorite pink was not something I made but a picture of my son standing in the pink hand me down sleeper form his sister. He was so happy to be wearing something form his big sister he did not even notice the color! His wife now owns the picture and loves it:-)

  80. I love all things pink. I am the mother of all boys.. and my friends all have boys. So anytime I get the chance to make something pink, I jump on it.

    I made a pink doll recently for a friends daughter. But I typically fall in love with all the pink things I get to make.. since they are few and far between.

    I would love this book!! Thanks for the great giveaway.

  81. I have been an unseen follower for some time. I only started smocking at the end of last year and have been badly bitten by the bug! Your blog has been a great inspiration and your tutorials so clear and concise! I smocked a pink dress of hearts fabric for my Granddaughter on Valentines day and am finishing up 6 'Wee Care' gowns in pink that have bullion roses embroidered around the neck.
    Thank you again!

  82. Pink! I love it. since I have 3 daughters, 4 grand daughters and another on the way, there have been lots of pink projects in my life time. I guess one of my favorites was a pink gingham Easter dress that I made for one of my grands for her first Easter. It had antique hankies incorporated into the design.

  84. Pink!!!! Made an french-machine sewn pink Easter dress for my dd when she was oh say 12 years old. Couldn't believe she let me do it. Lace shaping and embroidery. Sigh, those days are gone and she is to be married in May!!!

  85. And I put you on my blog. This has inspired me to start getting back to stitching and posting some of my work.

  86. My favorite pink project ever was actually a knitting item. I knit a pink sweater coat with white fur trim on it for my daughter. She was four. When she put it on, she waved her arms out like a ballerina does in a curtsy and exclaimed, "Oh I LOVE IT!" It was worth every stitch! ~Page
