Giveaway Day! Throw Pillow Cover by Seraphym Handmade

- Giveaway Ended -

It's that time of year again over at Sew Mama Sew, It's Giveaway Day!




For those of you new to Seraphym Handmade, Welcome!


My little Blog is about my slow Handmade Life. I love Quilting, Sewing my own clothes, Painting and Photography, and this is where I share what I make.


I try to fill my life with handmade items made with love rather than mass produced 'things'. The things we make from our hands hold a greater sentimental value rather than the store bought, same goes with gifts we receive which are handmade. 


All the things I make have a purpose and aren't made for the purpose of just because or to sit somewhere and be admired on a shelf (unless its my Art, then that needs to stay put!) I don't believe that things make you happy, but making them and using them sure does!



I just try to share this with the people who visit my blog through the products I make with my store and the tutorials and patterns I share to spread the knowledge and skills to make your own.






To spread the Handmade Love, I'm giving away this Throw Pillow cover. It measures 16" x 16" and is finished with an envelope flap style backing.  The Abstract and Modern detail is machine applique and machine and hand bound.





All you have to do to enter is post a comment below explaining what you love most about handmade gifts!

Entries close Monday, the 11th of May, and I'll announce a winner shortly after!

Entries open worldwide! Just make sure you don't comment as anonymous, because I won't be able to contact you.




Talk soon
xoxo

  3. My favorite part of receiving a handmade gift is realizing the time and effort and love they put into it for me. My favorite part is giving one is making it - thinking of the Petronas and making it just for them. It gives me special time pray

  9. Lauren,
    I have a motto on my Pinterest that came to me one day - "if you made it from your heart and soul, i don't care what it is -- it's perfect!"
    I will be stopping by to read more about your blog, as you come across as so genuine.
    And, to be honest, as the owner of seven vintage sewing machines, I have to check out more of your photos -- I spy some vintage machines here!

    Lastly, the pillow colors are GORGEOUS!
    Great giveaway!

  10. Handmade gifts are the best! When you receive one, you know that the giver put a lot of thought into the making of the gift and had all of your likes and preferences in mind. That makes the gift more special than any store bought one could be. :)

  12. As I love to give handmade gifts myself, I also love to receive them. When I make something for someone else, there is a lot of thought that goes into picking just the right item and materials for them. As I create, I think about the receiver throughout the entire time I am working on it.
