Ok, I just have to say- holy cow, that was fun.  

That was a wildly successful giveaway post, mostly due to it being posted on A Fashionable Stitch.  (Thanks, Sunni!)  I was worried that I'd hear crickets when I hit publish the other day, but I had a hundred comments.  How cool is that?  Fun stuff.  J thinks it's funny that so many people around the world have now read about the beetle.  And baby sloths.  The internet is a crazy (and fun) place.  I've been google searching all the baby animals you guys mentioned all weekend.  I have to say, baby llamas are pretty darn cute.  And, of course, puppies.  I have to concede to puppies.  Ok, well all baby animals are cute.

Anyway, let's get down to business.  Originally I was going to put everyone's name in a hat and draw one out, but...  Instead I did the old random number generator.   The screen shot is kind of silly, but here it is anyway.  I excluded two because one commenter didn't want to be entered and one was a double comment.

Gillian, I'll be emailing you shortly.
The beetle has packed his bags and has his party hat on.  He's ready to go.

I crack myself up.

Thanks, everyone for entering.  I've said it once but I'll say it again- the sewing blogiverse is pretty awesome.


  1. BAHAHAHA! You crack me up too! Thank you so much - I'm THRILLED to be the winner! (Thrilled enough to use all-caps twice in one comment - That's pretty thrilled!)

    I can't wait to sew-along... Now I wonder if a new pattern justifies fabric shopping????

    Thank you so much!

  2. Congratulations Gillian. New patterns totally justify fabric shopping.

  3. Wahaha, that picture of the party beetle with the little hat is a hoot! Cracks me up too. You are so clever with your photo editing :)

  4. I just Google image searched "Simplicity 1880" and a photo of your beetle shows up pretty high in the list. I can't wait to see that beetle's finished wrap dress!
