Carseat tent – GIVEAWAY!!!

Thanks for visiting my new little sewing blog today. I also write over at Karen Chatters, which has more info all about my life but maybe isn’t all that exciting. This blog here is still a work in progress, or at least the store part of it is. But please, look around and check it out! I also have an Etsy store, which is also a work in progress. Perhaps my entire life is just a work in progress…

In a nutshell I’m an unorganized woman, mother of 2 (a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy), a wife, a dog owner, a lover of sewing, a HUGE lover of fabric, a runner, a shopper, a cook and a non-cleaner. As a result my house is a mess, there are toys everywhere, my Christmas decorations are in boxes all over the house, the sink is full of dishes and I’m busy sewing and pretending none of that is happening. I love my life, my family, my friends and am a pretty happy lady.

But you’re here for a giveaway, soooo….  Here we have a car seat tent for an adorable little baby! Hate when people touch your baby? Do those cold winter winds keep your baby cold? Is your baby happy sleeping in his car seat but that baby blanket keeps falling in her face? Well, with this little car seat tent, you will find 2 straps that attach to the infant carrier handles to keep the blanket from resting ON your baby. The blanket is curved and should remain off the ground while you put the carrier down next to you. And, when you want to take your little one out of the carseat, the cover serves as a blanket.



This is NOT the carseat tent I’m giving away, just what it will look like on your carseat.

So, please leave me a comment. Tell me something interesting – your favorite book of all time, your favorite food, your earliest memory – anything. The drawing will remain open until the 7th at 8pm and I’ll notify the winner by the 9th. I will ship to Canada and the US. GOOD LUCK!!



The lucky winner is…. #10 – Katie!!  Katie said… “Your carseat tent is so cute! I have a new little one scheduled to arrive in April and haven’t found out if it’s a boy or girl…. would love to win! Thanks.”

Thanks everyone for participating.

    Hmm…I’m a bit obsessed with Middle Eastern food at the moment. I’m really craving kibbeh. I just might have to make some myself.

    So cute! I was planning on making one of these before my son gets here but I am way too tired! (He should be here any day now!)

    Something interesting… Let’s see the LAST book I read (can’t pick a favorite!) was The Palace Job which is kind of a sarcastic fantasy type book about a heist job…complete with a unicorn. It was entertaining :)

  4. Irina says:

    Well, my house is messy too, I’m a mum of a 3 1/2 y.o. girl and a 6month baby boy, owner of 2 cats and 2 chickens, my husband refers himself as a “quilter’s widow” and yes, I love fabric, sewing, crafting and knowing about other fellow bloggers. Thanks for sharing this giveaway and I love this carseat tent. It’ll be very useful if I win!

  5. Michelle says:

  8. kathy h says:

    My favorite food is ice cream. Your car seat cover is a great idea. I will be a new grandma next year so need to learn all the new ideas that are out there.

  9. KHohns says:

    I like Spam. Yes I must confess. But then again, I’m from Hawaii and Spam is pretty much a staple there.

  15. Cherie says:

    Think contacts are modern technlogy? Think again.

    “Although Leonardo da Vinci sketched out the idea of contact lenses in the late fifteenth century, the first ones weren’t made until centuries later. The first attempt at a glass contact lens took place in the 1880’s and was designed for someone who had had and eyelid amputated. It covered the whole eye” Quoted from the book: “octors killed George Washington”

    I found this book very interesting.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. Marguerite says:

    I have an idea for a time-limit diet – you can eat all sorts of delectable foods (pomegranate – whole!, crab – in shell!, wrapped candies, most things with chopsticks, etc.), but have only a few minutes per meal. I think I’ll make a million bucks when I write a book about it :) (And my sister in Boston will certainly need one of those when the baby arrives!)

  17. vanessa says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! you know, my daughter’s favourite colour is pink, she would love to win it for our baby!

  22. Heidi says:

    My first little one is arriving this Spring! This would be perfect :) Favorite book? Wow, that’s hard… growing up, I think I read the Laura Ingalls series at least ten times! Now, I’m really in love with any book written by Lauraine Snelling.

  35. Sally P. says:

    It’s so hard to choose a favorite book…I love so many! My all time favorite children’s fairy tale is Snow White and Rose Red. My grandma had this book and my cousin and I would read it. I was delighted, as an adult, to find a new copy in one of my book store visits!

  36. Caryn says:

    I love books so much that at the moment I am reading 2 paperbacks and one e-book as well as listening to an audio book (obviously not exactly at the same time LOL)Just about every book I read becomes a favourite, but I always come back to Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women as my absolute favourite. Thanks for the giveaway

  41. Jennifer says:

    My earliest memory is of when I was 2 1/2 and visited my new baby sister in the hospital. I wore a Mickey Mouse hospital gown over my clothes and I washed my hands with foamy soap. I don’t actually remember seeing the baby. : )

  42. Mary Ann says:

    I am mom to a 2 year old girl and,a 6 week old boy. Not much time to read or eat right now! Would love the cover!

  45. nancy says:

    lovely carseat tent! thanks!

    today i saw a “beware of dog” sign INSIDE OF CAR on the backseat window with a STUFFED large dog next to it. Whaaaaaattt???

  46. Very cute, and the print is adorable! I gotta say, these comments are making me hungry — we need to go grocery shopping so I am stuck with Kraft mac & cheese for dinner!

  47. fern says:

    one of my favourite children’s book to read when I was little is called “But No Elephants!”. When I was pregnant with my son I tracked down a copy on ebay and it’s still one I read with him, even though he’s 7, almost 8, and it’s a bit young for him…

  48. Allison says:

    My favorite book of all time is “Watership Down” it’s about a warren of rabbits. It’s a long book, but my sister and I read it when we were younger, and I can remember pretending we were rabbits when we would play out in the snow. We had such big imaginations!

  49. BreannaS says:

    my favorite book right now it the dreamhouse kings series.

  50. Rebecca says:

    I just delivered our third boy and am enjoying getting to read the entire Harry Potter series while nursing! Thanks for the giveaway!
