100th post!!!!!

GIVEAWAY!
I am giving each of you this little dress pattern! When I made this little diaper bag I got several comments on this little dress, which made it the perfect gift for you on my 100th post. I hope you all enjoy it. Click the picture (the instruction picture) and follow the steps to download this PDF file. You can then print out the instructions and pattern pieces on your printer. This little dress pattern also would be so cute on a little smock or A-line jumper, a pillow for a little girls bed, baby bedding, quilts, T-shirts, you get the idea!

(CLICK ABOVE PICTURE FOR DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN)

If you have trouble downloading this file please let me know!
I also want to give everyone who comments a chance to win a copy of my book "Samantha's Crochet Edgings", or set of my crochet patterns! For every 20 comments I will draw two names, one will win patterns the other a book. This way everyone has a good chance of winning! I will announce the winner in my next post.
I want to thank everyone for your sweet comments and support for my first 100 posts! You all are amazing and you make me feel like I can do anything, you give me the confidence to keep trying. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I would love to know what you have planned for my little dress pattern. Tell me when you comment what you think you will use it for, everyone will be inspired by the answers!

You are such a sweetie for doing this. You have beautiful things. I will be adding that little dress to bags and pinafores for sure!

Peach said...

OMG...that is so sweet! Now you are almost making me wish I wanted to have another baby just to make this adorable little bag.

Congrats on the big 100th post! WAHOOO! I have been eying that bag since I first came to your site and drooling over how simple and lovely it is. I think that the appliqué would make a lovely baby blanket or baby clothes blanket, don't you? Cut up all the most loved dresses and make little dresses on the quilt blocks. hmmm....

Debbie said...

How cute is that? Thanks so much, I can't wait to use this pattern!

bishopfamily said...

Congratulations on 100th! You know I'll comment even without the extra enticement, so you don't have to put my name in. The dress applique is so cute. I have to add it to my "to do" pile. Here's to the next 100. I've still got quite a ways to go for me.

Congrats on hitting 100! You make some of the sweetest outfits.

I am thinking that making a little quilt block out of the dress with some embroidery embellishments to be framed would be super cute.

Thanks!

100 posts! Will my blog ever get that high? lol.

Simply love that bag, so cute!

I was thinking perhaps a small baby quilt much like your bag. or an embellishment on the bottom of a pair of jeans. :)

Candace said...

Happy 100th post. My husband recently celebrated 5 years,you guys encourage me to keep going. I am smitten with the bag, I have two little girls that would love this pattern on their pillows.

Steve & Molly said...

Happy 100!! Woo-hoo! Keep it up, girl! I loved this bag when you first posted it. Thanks for sharing the pattern! I am planning to use it to make little tote bags to give the girls in my S.S. class (0-4 year olds) as birthday gifts. Got any creative (and easy!!) ideas for little boys? In your SPARE time that is! Ha ha! Where do you get all your energy and time to create such wonderful stuff! You are the woman! :) Thanks for your comment about Rebekah. Take care.

Allyson Hill said...

What great resources you have here! I'm so excited to see that you're giving crochet tutorials. I'm just learning so these will be helpful.

What a nice suprise for 100th post. I love the purse and the little dress on it!

Looking forward to another 100 posts.

BTW - how quick is your granny blanket to crochet? I was thinking of using it for a blanket I need to finish by mother's day.

Congrats on your first 100!!! I love the simplicity of the dress and will add it to something for baby Emily soon. Maybe on a pinafore or a new bag. Hmmm....or several hundred other things!

Thanks again and wishes for several hundred more!

Hey, that's so sweet. Can't wait to put that little dress on something for my girl. Thanks for coming by my blog to say hi.

zanygrey said...

Love the little dress bag, I'm so envious...I can knit, crochet, spin, weave, but I still have a brand new sewing machine in box, never opened, never used because I'm sewinphobic...maybe someday....
thanks,

Hello! Thank you for the dress pattern. I think it would be great on throw pillows. You can make up several with diffrent dresses and pile them up on the bed. It would look so sweet in my little ones room.

I'm so happy you came by for a visit you have a very resourceful site.

I enjoyed reading your blog tonight. Your crochet edging is so pretty and I played your video over and over several times with crochet thread and hook in hand trying to teach myself as I want to do some for a new grandbaby soon to arrive. Thanks for posting your tutorials. I think it's great!

I would like to win your book because I have a new grandbaby to sew for and I'm basically teaching myself crochet at this point but I'm loving it. Nothing really special about my post compared to many of the others, except for the fact that I want it so I can duplicate your edgings for a First Time Grandma, lol! Thanks for letting me enter.
