Heirloom Bloomer Giveaway

by This is Carrie on March 30, 2010

I’m giving away both pairs of the handmade bloomers featured in the Heirloom Bloomer Tutorial I wrote for Ucreate last week!

blue bloomer size 3-6 months

All you have to do is make a comment on this post telling me if you’d ever be able to cut into a family heirloom (handkerchief, wedding dress, embroidered pillowcase, crocheted doily, etc) to turn it into something else that is more usable.  Do you think it would be less meaningful? equally meaningful? or more meaningful? If you have an example, please share!  (If you read my guest post over at Design Mom last fall, you’ll know where I stand but feel free to disagree.)

pink bloomers size 0-3 months.

Two pairs of bloomer, two chances to win.

My rules: One comment per person, open to international addresses, winner chosen using random.org, comments close Friday, April 2 midnight (PST). Winner announced Saturday, April 3.

I think I could cut into something. I ended up making three identical quilts (one for me, one for my brother, and one for my mom) out of my dad’s clothes after he passed away, and I am so glad I did. Of course, I could only cut into something like that if I knew I’d be making it into something else that I wouldn’t be getting rid of. :) Thanks for the fun giveaway!

i commented without answering the question! I would cut into a family heirloom as long as I felt confident I could make something awesome out of it. Definitely would make it more meaningful if you get more use out of it.

Of course there is no finer way to exhibit a family heirloom such as hankies or dresses worn by another family member! The tiny bums of our precious babies can show the love carried down from our past! I absolutely love these bloomers….soooo sweet and kindred!
