GIVEAWAY: You Can Make This.com...a $50 value!


YouCanMakeThis.com was created by a mom who wanted to provide downloadable instructions on how to make just about anything from children's boutique clothing and jewelry, to handbags, home decor and more. What makes the site unique is that these instructions are written by everyday moms who have an expertise in an area. They are written in a way that makes you feel you have a friend sitting right next to you, telling you what to do next. They all have detailed instructions and step-by-step full-color photos so even the most "craft-challenged" person can make these items for their homes and families.

You can make this!

In fact, if you'd like to try out some products for free, you can sign up for their FREE newsletter (click the banner above to take you to the sign-up page). After sign-up, you'll receive a link to your email inbox asking you to confirm subscription. Simply click on that link, and you'll receive all of these product instructions pictured here, plus an online video and digital scrapbooking frames.

Would you like to win a $50 bundle of even more DIY instructions? You can learn how to make a Child/Adult Apron Set, Women's Reversible Wrap Skirt, The "She Loves Me, She Loves Me KNOT" Handbag, The Reversible Patchwork Bucket Hat, Easy-Fit Pants, and Boys Ties. Remember, even if you've never sewn before, the site believes that you REALLY CAN make these things!

And yes, YOU REALLY CAN! I personally even tried out one of the patterns, the boys ties. And it was easy! I can be kinda dumb when it comes to stuff like this but if I can do it, anyone can! Didn't they turn out great? I want to make more matching ties for them now. I made these ties to match a dress my daughter had and we had photos taken. Great for Easter!
