It’s GIVEAWAY time!!

Before I share all about the goodies up for grabs, though, I’d be remiss not to thank all of the lovely Summer Survival Guide contributors for stopping in to share their amazing ideas. Hasn’t the lineup of ideas been fabulous? I am honestly in shock that next week will be the final week for the Summer Survival Guide. It’s going to be another great one!

Today’s giveaway comes compliments of a true sweetheart of the blogging world, Linda of Craftaholics Anonymous fame! 

Did you know that Linda also has an Etsy store called the Ruffled Begonia that is truly brimming with fun sewing patterns? Well – she does! And her patterns, which are all offered in PDF format to be delivered to your inbox promptly after your order is placed (can I hear a woohoo for not having to wait on shipping?!), are gorgeous!


I am thrilled to announce that THREE lucky PS readers are going to win one of her patterns today! Yippee!

Y’all probably know by now how much I love ruffles, and any ruffle lover will swoon the moment they stop in to visit The Ruffled Begonia.

The lovely Layla bag had me at hello! What a fun pattern this would be to use some vibrant, summery fabrics! (I love Linda’s suggestion here to use fat quarters for the ruffles. So smart!)

If you have babies on your mind like I do, the Summer Love Ruffled Nursing Cover will be perfect for you! 

Wouldn’t this Sydnee Apron be downright darling worked up in some festive Red, White and Blue for your Memorial Day or Independence Day barbecues? Swoon!


I told you these patterns are darling! And so affordable, too!

I’m sure you’re clamoring to know how to get yourself entered to win, so let’s get right down to the nitty gritty!

Entry One (mandatory): Visit Linda’s shop and tell me which pattern you would pick.

Entry Two: Follow Linda’s blog, Craftaholics Anonymous, and leave a comment letting me know.

Entry Three: Follow Linda on Twitter, and leave a comment letting me know.

Entry Four: Like Craftaholics Anonymous on Facebook, and leave a comment letting me know.

Entry Five: Tweet about this giveaway, and leave a comment letting me know. To make things super simple, you can copy and paste this tweet:

I want to #win a Ruffled Begonia pattern on Positively Splendid! http://tinyurl.com/3o6ljys @splendidamy @craftaholicanon

    i would choose the summer ruffle nursing cover. my daughter is due in july. though i might make it as linda had custom made one for a mother expecting a boy, without the ruffle. my daughter and son-in-law have had a sweet little girl for 4 1/2 years now. i don’t think daddy is going to let anything feminine get around HIS BOY!
