Giveaway: Sweet Sewing Prints

9 Dec

My first introduction with Joanna Baker was the best kind of introduction – I actually won a giveaway that was hosted by Madalynne. I immediately fell in love with her beautiful illustrations and send her plenty of gushy emails that may have even bordered on creepy/obsessive. What can I say – when I fall for some, I fall for it hard!

Joanna Baker - Thread

An illustrator trained in fashion design, Joanna creates some of the prettiest sketches, for both wall prints and note cards – just lurk her Etsy if you don’t believe me! I especially love this fancy little pug! Or, ooh, how about this Poppy Sundress, too bad I can’t find that kind of fabric and make myself a real-life one!

Joanna Baker - Dressforms

Now here’s the fun part – Joanna has created these three beautiful sewing prints for one lucky winner! Yeeeah!! Wouldn’t these be perfect in a sewing space? Or even just hanging around the house, because why should something this lovely be restricted to one room amirite?

Joanna Baker - Buttons

To enter the giveaway for the sewing prints, all you gotta do is like Joanna’s Facebook page and also leave a comment and let me know what is your favorite thing in Joanna’s shop. That’s it! One lucky winner will recieve all three sewing prints – perhaps an early Christmas present for yourself? πŸ™‚ Also, this giveaway is open WORLDWIDE (if you can receive mail, you can enter this giveaway!) and I will close all entries 12/16/13 at 8:00am CST.

I am SO jealous of whoever wins these prints. It kills me how cute they are! Here’s a little Instagram shot of mine chilling in their new home – I found these cool frames at the flea market, I love how fancy they are! I hung the prints over my ironing board so I can see them from pretty much anywhere in the room πŸ™‚

Good luck!

EDIT These prints are now available in Joanna’s shop for a limited time – go get you one!

    Those prints are gorgeous. She’s clearly very talented. I love the blue vase note cards in her Etsy shop too!

  2. Becky Ensinger December 9, 2013 at 8:14 am #

    I would pick the cake notecards.

  3. traeumvommeer December 9, 2013 at 8:21 am #

    Wow, your Prints are sooo beautiful! I so envy you the one with the strawberry pin-cushion because I inherited one just like that one from my stepmom πŸ™‚
    I also really like the blue vase note cards from the shop, thought. And the Pug is sooo sweet. Greetings from Germany!

    I “liked” Joanna’s Facebook page, and I LOVED Joanna’s Stripped Chair print! This weekend I moved into a new home and “inherited” a collection of different chairs and at first I was going to just donate them because I didn’t think I had the space, but we ended up finding a perfect place for each chair in the house, so I think I was meant to keep them! This print reminds me of the chairs πŸ™‚

  5. Linda Nelson December 9, 2013 at 8:30 am #

    I love Fashion Alphabet Illustration Art Print!

  6. Heather Turner December 9, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    I love the 5×7 print of the cakes! Would be cute in the kitchen πŸ™‚ I admire you so much and your talent is unreal!! Hopefully I can find my niche someday!

  7. Chrystal December 9, 2013 at 8:36 am #

    I also “liked” the Facebook page and browsed Joanna’s Etsy. My favourite would have to be the note cards with shoes on them. My first love is high heels – The first item I ever bought that made me feel girly growing up was a pair of strappy sequined heels πŸ™‚ I would totally frame one of them as a leetle picture for my vanity, and then would use the rest for important hand written notes to those I love.

  8. Kristin December 9, 2013 at 8:42 am #

    I agree, super cute and beautiful prints! I’d love to have them in my sewing room – how motivational!

    I love the prints you show but also like her Striped Chair Illustration Art Print in her shop.
    Liked her on facebook under k_l_turner123 at yahoo dot com.

    I’m sad these sewing ones aren’t currently in her shop. I’d totally buy at least the dress forms one even if I didn’t win. I also like the blue vases one currently there. Thanks for sharing these!

  49. maddie December 9, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    Ah! I’m so glad my post spawned another collaboration. I’m happy to hear that you’re enjoying your illustrations and that someone else will enjoy their own too.

  50. Dawn Redmond December 9, 2013 at 6:38 pm #

    When I visited the shop, I decided my pug-owning daughter would LOVE the pug-on-a-leash print for Christmas. So I ordered it!

  51. sewwrong December 9, 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    Ooo ooo, I was eyeing that poppy dress print in her shop the other day, I love it! Thanks for introducing me to her awesome illustrations.

  52. Marchelle December 9, 2013 at 7:39 pm #

    I love these, I would give one each to my mother and grandmother, as we all sew, and it would be a nice christmas (or maybe I’ll save it for mother’s day) gift. In her shop I love the macarons print. Absolutely adore it.

  53. sewcharleston December 9, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    I want these! They would be perfect above my sewing table!

  54. Beth Swanson Nere December 9, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    Besides being lovely, the Striped Chair Illustration Art Print would be a gift for my daughter who is putting herself through college and has just gotten her first apartment.

  58. Laura December 9, 2013 at 11:21 pm #

    Wow! Love these! My favourite item in Joanna’s shop is the Fashion Alphabet Illustration, because how bloody much would I love to make all of those beautiful garments (especially that amazing fur-trimmed coat)?! And, btw, the frames you found for your prints are so ace!! πŸ™‚

  59. Sam December 10, 2013 at 3:00 am #

    I can’t decide whether I like the cakes art print or the chair best. They’re all gorgeous.

  60. Frau Leo December 10, 2013 at 3:16 am #

    I love all the prints, but my fave is the leopard print glasses -I have glasses, my 13yr old have just got glasses and so has my husband. Not sure any of us would be brave enough to actually wear them though! Also liked her fb page.

  72. Sandra (Sewist-Stitch) December 11, 2013 at 4:06 am #

    Oh I love all of these and of course all of yours! The Fashion Alphabet is a must have and the shoe note cards, although I’d want that on the wall as well. I have a bit of obsession with shoes too πŸ™‚
