contest

Hey, I managed to get another pattern out (fin-al-ly!), so it's time for another draw for a free pattern zine. The pattern is my fair weather jacket in children sizes 2-4 (for now). To enter, please tell me your favorite funny blog (I'm feeling like I need a good laugh lately). Bonus points for it also being crafty (though no one is counting ;)) Leave a comment with a link and I'll do another random number draw for the winner on thursday evening after the kids go to bed.

Good luck!

  7. My favorite blog:
    http://secret-agent-josephine.com/blog/

    She's been on vacation for the last month, and has had guest bloggers. But if you go back a month, you can see what she does. She's not really a crafty blog, but she does sometimes do crafty things and posts about them.

    which is by an artist.

  9. Crazy aunt Purl. Funny, crafty and tipsy all at once; you can hear her southern accent in her writing:

    Thanks for the tutes!

  11. Aaaah! I've been waiting for this for a long time!!! Thank you!

    My favourite funny blog is www.dooce.com, because I don't think you can count www.theonion.com as a blog!

  12. Oh my word! I must make that coat for my daughter! When will it be above size 4?

    This "Cake Wrecks" blog is hilarious, and in particular this post cracks me up: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2008/06/naked-mohawk-baby-carrot-jockeys.html

    http://failblog.org/ is hysterical too.

  13. I've been waiting for you to post this pattern--in fact I was premptively shopping for fabric last night! Not at all craft-related, but I've been grooving on xkcd lately:

  14. I don't read any funny blogs, guess I need to start!

  15. I love that jacket pattern... of course it's hard to tell because the picture is so darn cute. This is the problem with kids' things; do I like the coat or do I want to eat up the adorable child?

    My favorite funny blog is definitely the Yarn Harlot (knitting) http://www.yarnharlot.ca

  16. I don't know of any craft funny blogs. I really like http://failblog.org/ and go there when I need a laugh. The jacket looks great and I hope to win so I can try it with my daughter before she out grows size 4.

  17. Im so excited. I've been waiting for this pattern to come out! I dont have a funny blog post to share. Ill keep looking. But I just wanted to stop by and say that I promise to buy one soon. Maybe I can talk hubby into getting it for me as part of an early birthday gift.

  20. Oh wow that jacket is adorable, I would love to make one of those for my girls!

  21. http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/ is somewhat polarizing, but i generally find it hilarious--mostly because a lot of it describes me spot-on. (the white girl blushes at how trite she is...)

    congrats on another great pattern! can't wait to sew one up!

  23. Wow, I can't believe I'm the first to post this one, but this guy actually lives only a few miles from us, and his wire objects are amazing (and funny). Take a look in the archives.
