Go Green Month… Giveaway!

It’s March 1st, and that means it’s the official start of Go Green Month here at Sew Much Ado!  It will be month full of tutorials, guest posts, and reviews to help us all be a little kinder to our Earth.  I certainly don’t claim to be an expert on the subject, which is precisely why I wanted to do this month long endeavour.  Go Green Month is about making SMALL changes in whatever ways we can.  Baby steps, right?
We’ll focus all month long on reducing, reusing, and recycling while we sew, craft, and live our everyday lives.
Luckily I have some SUPER guest bloggers lined up who are going to take over Sew Much Ado and share their knowledge and ideas with us.  I promise you will not be disappointed!
What better way to start off our month of Green than a giveaway?  Two readers will each win a pair of these toddler leg warmers made using my 10 Minute Toddler Leg Warmer Tutorial.  It’s a great project to repurpose knee socks that you have laying around the house.  If you’re wondering (and I know you are), the leg warmers I’m giving away were made with new knee socks I had in my fabric stash.  They’ll be similar to the ones pictured but will each have different patterns.

Don’t have any kids?  They can be used as arm warmers for teens or adults with a short sleeved shirt!

Here are the details:

The contest is open until Saturday March 6, 2010 at midnight Eastern time, and is open to anyone in the US, Canada, or abroad!
