My First Giveaway!

You read the title right, readers! It's time for the very first American Girl Worl Giveaway! Here's what you could win:

A Holiday Party Outfit! (With Accessories!!!!!) It was hand-made by me. All seams are finished using the 'honeycomb stitch' and everything is properly hemmed, etc.

Here are the accessories: A Gift* for the hostess of the party your girl is attending, four colorful Christmas Cards, and ten Hair Elastics to keep your girl's hair pretty for the party!

*There's nothing in the gift bag except tissue paper, just though I'd let you know about that.

Here are the parts of the part outfit that I made. I used a high-quality cotton print.

Without the wrap.

Detail on the skirt.

Back detail showing one of the snap closures.

The wrap, made to match the dress.

Your girl will be the prettiest one at the party in this gorgeous Dress and Wrap. Remind her to give the hostess the Gift in the golden bag and to pass out her Christmas Cards to friends. If her hair gets a bit unruly, just fix it up with the included Hair Elastics!

Here's how to enter this giveaway!

Hello My name is Izy! I LOVE THIS GIVEAWAY!!! And I would LOVE to enter (duh!) ;) I have my parents permission! It is kind of hard to say my favorite doll I own...I own 3 A.G.s - Samantha is really pretty and I love playing with her hair, Julie I love because anything I make for her can be funky, and I like Kanani because she is so pretty and I like to do hairstyles on her. Guess I have 3 favorites. :)


Priya - Love your blog too!!! :D

Katie said...

Thank you all sooo much for entering!
Priya, I will write down everyone's name on a slip of paper and put all the slips in a bowl and have either one of my parents of my brother choose the winner.
Izy, thank you so much! I have more detective Kittredge episodes planned.
Thanks again, girls!
PS Sorry I haven't been posting or commenting on anyone else's blog. Tryouts for high school volleyball started this week, so I've been CRAZY busy.

Priya said...

Thanks, Katie!! This is an awesome giveaway. :) When I get better at sewing I hope to be able to make nice doll clothes, too! :)

If I could get another doll I would DEFINITELY get Marie-Grace.
