Comments closed. Congratulations Erica!

I’ve been decluttering a lot lately. The past few weekends I’ve focused on paper: books, magazines and outdated files. Yes, you read the first one correctly — books — and there are quite a few craft books. I pulled them from the donate pile and decided it would be much more fun to have a few giveaways. Everyone loves giveaways, right?

First up is So Easy…Home Sewing: 25 Fabulous Items to Make for Your Home.

from amazon:
It covers all the basics, starting with the seams and hems, through to piping and borders and tassels and trims, with helpful information about fabric selection, stitches, a sewing machine guide, the essential equipment, scissors, notions and other tools, needed to get started. The book is set up as a series of workshops enabling the sewer to first learn the techniques involved and then go on to create simple projects using those techniques.

You can take a look inside the book on amazon and see both the table of contents, which lists the projects, and the index. Here’s a look at some of the projects.

How to enter: Leave a comment on this post. You don’t need to say anything but hello, but I’m curious if anyone else out there has been decluttering. Do you do it regularly? Once a year? Once a decade?

Bonus entry: Share this giveaway on facebook, twitter, [insert your favorite social networking site here] and leave another comment.

I’ll close comments on Monday, November 14th. Shipping is free within the U.S. International folks are welcome to enter, but I’ll need a few bucks via paypal to cover sending it overseas.

If sewing isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Next up will be a knitting book. Good luck!

    Thanks Julie! I’ve been in a decluttering mood as well. Usually that comes in the spring. Anyway, if I win, you can just bring it to Craft Out next week ;)

    I am a constant declutterer – clutter drives me nuts. This book sounds great.

    After 12 years of enjoying wall-to-wall carpet… we decided to pull up the carpet in our bedroom, and replace it with wood.
    Man!! I had to pull everything out of the closet too.
    What a mess ! But actually enjoyed the de-cluttering and throwing away part. It had been so easy to just keep putting things in the closet, rather than throwing away, giving away, sharing, etc.
    and I found my grandmother’s button jar !!

    Yes, I de-clutter, but less than I should. Book giveaways on your blog are a great idea!

    Thoroughly enjoy your blog and would love to have this book. I de-cluttered a few weeks ago, but most of what i threw out was deemed as “garbage”! Have made several of the items you’ve listed, like the cute flower bookmark for your friend. I want to make the pillowcase dress but haven’t done that yet. Keep up the fun and interesting stuff.

    Hey there! That looks like a book I could use! I am trying to declutter too! My mantra ‘less is more’. Love your blog, thanks for the great info.

  12. Jessica says:

    Enter me please! and I think the decluttering thing must be a cold-weather-nesting type instinct.. plus you gotta make room for santa’a spoils :) Good luck everyone!
