You Can Make This: Website review and Giveaway!

I was super excited to be introduced to this great new site called YouCanMakeThis.com! YouCanMakeThis is a super website where Moms can find several projects they can make and create on their own. YouCanMakeThis sells several eBooks for reference with making these projects! YouCanMakeThis.Com is an innovative website that provides mothers and other family members with instant access to patterns, eBooks, instructions, and tutorials for a myriad of favorite craft and sewing projects. Customers can learn to make twirl skirts, hair bows, and other unique boutique clothing. The company gets the instructions for the projects by finding mothers who want to share their expertise in a variety of areas including sewing, appliqué, woodworking, crafts and more. I was able to get the eBook for how to make Filled Tutus!
YouCanMakeThis downloadable eBooks provide simple, step-by-step guides for quilting, knitting, aprons, crochet, scrap booking and sewing. For those unfamiliar with eBooks, basically, they are files that can easily be downloaded, saved and then printed or read on a computer monitor. The website offers more than 700 projects that help moms make things for their children, for themselves and even teaches tweens how to learn a new skill. What a great site for learning how to keep funds in your pocket with your own creations! I know when I was little, my mom made me several things from hand. I treasure those home-made gifts!
Most eBooks are $9.95 or less, and dozens of popular projects are bundled with several patterns and styles such as Boutique Dress Top and Bottoms for $15.95. There are also many free projects that can be found while surfing around their website. YouCanMakeThis.com has a great selection of categories to choose from: baby products, boys, crafts, clothing, scrap booking, doll clothing, quilting, jewelry & beading, shoes, toys and more!
I think this is a great website full of knowledge from Moms all over! You can purchase your own eBooks that spark your interest, or enter for a chance to win!
This contest is open to all readers living in the Continental United States. Go to the YouCanMakeThis website and take a look at all the different projects. Comment on which one you would be most interested in learning about. You can see all the different categories on the left hand side of their site. Click here to see how you can earn extra credits to win, and click here to see guidelines and the official rules. Contest will end on October 30TH, at 7:00 PM CST.

I love the holiday section and the toys and activities section. The felt food items are really cute - might try my hand at making some of them.

There are so many fun things on there. I love the petticoat pattern, or I would love the quilt ones. I sew, but I have never quilted. I think that would be fun to get involved in.

I love this site. I just started learning to sew and the first thing I sewed was the easy fit pants from this site. I would love to have the round neck top sundress pattern so the pants have a matching top.

I am a big textile arts fan .. sewing, heirloom embroidery, cross-stitch, quilting, knitting, crochet .. I love them all. My family looks forward to the handmade gifts they receive, all tailored just for the recipient. That siad, I looked around and found so many items that I would love to try .. but, since I have to settle on one...I would probably start with the Love is in the air pillow, since it combines a few different techniques and is so adorable!
