Today, we have two great pattern giveaways, and some Sew-vivor prize updates! I also want to remind everyone that auditions are still open and going strong! There are currently 87 entries, and they are all lovely! It is going to be painful for the judges to narrow them down to only 10! Make sure to click on this post if you want to enter Sew-vivor! 
Auditions end this Monday, March 11 and the Top 10 will be announced next Wednesday, March 13!
Giveaway time!!!

The following giveaways are for ANYONE TO ENTER! You do not have to audition for Sew-vivor to enter the giveaway, and they are open internationally. We have two companies offering some great PDF patterns. I recently discovered the beauty of a PDF pattern (you can print as many patterns as you need, and easily make more than 1 size). You can enter each giveaway separately. There will be 3 total winners, and they will be announced next week with our Top 10 reveal.
Our first giveaway is from…

Giving: Five PDF patterns to one winner
*Go To Patterns is an awesome company, started by my friend Andrea from The Train to Crazy blog. I love Go To Patterns, because there you can find super cute patterns designed by Andrea herself, and some other favorite sewing bloggers. Be sure to check out all the fun patterns!

Here are a few of the adorable patterns I would love to try:
