Sewn Hats book giveaway!

***This giveaway is now closed. See the winner below!***

I am super duper excited today to share with you this new book hot off the presses-called Sewn Hats! By Carla Hegeman Crim (also known as the Scientific Seamstress!)

Sewn Hats is a collaboration of 35 hat designs (and patterns!) from many fabric designers, pattern designers, and bloggers (including yours truly!). This fab collection features a variety of hat patterns for all genders, sizes, ages, and fashion sense.

Also how about this?!Β This book will also be an eBook – available in a bunch of formats so it can be compatible with different kinds of eReaders.

My contribution was the Sugar and Spice Bonnet-isn’t that bubs adorable? Plus the bonnet isn’t too bad, eh? πŸ˜‰ It’s pretty exciting to see my name in print, I’ve gotta admit!

I had so much fun working with Carla on this, and I’m sure everyone else did as well! It looks like an amazing array of hats were included in the book!

How’d you like a chance to win your own copy of Sewn Hats?
How to enter: Leave a comment on this post and tell me your favorite kind of hat! Easy peasy. Please leave an email address so I can contact you if you win.
The giveaway will run until Friday the 28th.
Good luck!
