Embroidery Experiment

fabric book cover giveaway

The first (and thus far only other) time I participated, I had asked for everyone’s favorite author or book. The literary winner was Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice for those interested.

I had also asked the winners last time to give me their thoughts on the product since I was still working out the pattern. Since then, I have worked it out and am now at the stage of experimenting with the embellishments. If only there were more weekends in the week, eh?

This round all I ask from you is to be kind and only leave one comment. Please include:

  • What character would you love to meet in real life and why?
    (Name the book and author of course;)
  • Which cover would you prefer?
    (Although in the case of ties, I will choose randomly.)
  • Your email address
    (It is ok to disguise it such as:  calynn ((at)) thecrafties ((dot)) com)

Side note: If you are having trouble finding the Comments link (look up top, under the date), then click on the title and scroll to the bottom. (This theme still has a few quirks, and for that I apologize.) Comments are moderated so it may take a while for yours to appear, what with work and a NYC trip and all, but they will be tallied in order, this I promise you:)

Comments will be closed around midnight Eastern time on Wednesday, May 25th. The four international winners will be chosen at random and I will ship the covers out by the end of the month. I will email each at the close of the giveaway for the mailing information but if I do not hear from them by Saturday, May 28th, I will select another random winner instead.

Also, check back soon after the winners have been announced for the tutorial! Yes, finally! :D

Good luck and huzzah!

    Lets see a character I would like to meet….I am not sure, because I don’t know if I would like to be friends with many that I do read, but then again I really don’t think of meeting them or living in that time.

  85. I was thinking the author of The House that Mouse Built – Maggie Rudy but then rethought that. I am incredibly selfish about my book reading. I don’t want to do a book discussion nor do i want someone to change what I thought about the book. Somewhat like going to the movie version and being horribly disappointed in the big screen version of a book I very much enjoyed.
    But I do love your covers. The one with the little flower embroidery caught my eye.

  113. Thank you for making this lovely giveaway possible. I like the Embroidery Experiment best because I love embroidery. When I was a freshman in high school (over (47 years ago), I hated reading “A Tale of Two Cities.” Slogging through Dickens was torture for me, but I was fascinated by the character of Madame DeFarge. Now that I am trying to learn to knit, the idea of her stitching names into her knitting still captivates me. Of course, I wouldn’t slam the door in Mr. Darcy’ face if he should choose to drop by.

  114. I am currently reading “City of Ember” by Jeanne DuPrau – and I think I’d love to meet everyone featured in the book. Imagine living in an underground city all fueled by electricity. They never knew about candles and such. It’s a fascinating read.
    I love the embroidery cover. It’s really cute!

    rachaelroyce [at] gmail [dot] com :)

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  116. Wow, those are really cute! Since Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book, I would like to meet Elizabeth Bennet in real life. I would love to go on a long walk together, and she and I would get on famously on our rambles on the grounds of Pemberly.

    I love the Old Timey one best, of course.

  117. I’d like to meet Grace from the Monkeewrench series by P.J. Tracy because she is so mysterious. I love the clean and preppy book cover.

  118. So sweet.

    I would love to meet Mr. Darcy (Jane Austen “Pride and Prejudice”). Is there any lady who can really honestly say they wouldn’t want him sweeping her off her feet?

    I would love the embroidered one. It’s so delicate and sweet.

  119. I love the clean & preppy with the flower, closely followed by the cute & colorful. But they are all awesome! Great job.
    It’s a tough decision to think of who I would want to meet in real life. I think I would want to meet Aunt Vespasia from the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series by Anne Perry. She sounds like she would be a blast to sit around chatting with.

  120. ooh! i’d love to win the embroidered or the clean and preppy ones… they are so cute!

    my favourite book is The Colour Purple by Alice Walker. i’d love to meet just about any of the main characters. there’s just so much we could talk about :)

  121. I would love to meet Mr. Darcy…he is just the ideal guy:) I would love to have the clean and preppy.


  122. These are really cute! I like them all except the one with the flower but not because it doesn’t look good, only because I’m not a fan of bulky and that would make me frustrated sliding it in and out of a bag.

    So, which character? Hmm, Genevive Volaire out of the Retriever series by Laura Anne Gilman. I would like to smack her and tell her to grow up. She’s endearing and has hope and keeps me coming back but man, she also annoys me. lol

  123. I love the “Clean and Preppy” cover! :) Super cute!
    I would have to say Anne Shirley from “Anne of Green Gables” my all time favorite book!!

  124. I would like to meet Marty Davis from the Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke.

    I love the last cover but would be happy with any of them.

  125. I’d like to meet Firesong from the Valdemar series by Mercedes Lackey to see his incredible clothes. I’d like the first cover, please

  126. Oh – I would like to meet Sherlock Holmes, because he is so brilliant. I like the last cover thes best! yobethie (at) hotmail (dot) com

  127. I would love to meet Rhett Butler. I like the clean and preppy version best but fun and colorful is great too.

  128. Right now I would like to meet Lisbeth Salander from the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. She is a strong independent female despite all the hard things she has been through.
    I like the clean and preppy book cover!

  129. Lovely book covers! It’s hard to choose a favourite, but the Embroidery Experiment one is especially cute. :-)

    I always wanted to meet Aragon (from Lord of the Rings) in person – he just sounds like a very interesting guy (and rather attractive too, which is always a bonus!).

  130. I would love to meet Gilbert Winslow of the House of Winslow series written by Gilbert Winslow. The embroidered cover is too beautiful for words.

    Sorry the books are written by Gilbert Morris. Not Winslow! *Blushing*

  131. Well, it might not seem very creative, but my favourite meet would be Harry Potter. Why? Because that would mean that all the magic world was real! And I love the magic world. (That one from HP, not all magic worlds.)

    I favourite the last cover and your tree/flower-design. It’s like in a dream.

    best wishes :)

  132. hello! i like the last cover, i would like to meet ernest hemmingway, i think, and chat poetry. or perhaps virginia woolf, and hold her hand. x

  133. I love fabric bookcovers and used mine so much it is in tatters. I’ve been meaning to make myself a new one, but if I could win Old-Timey, I would be in heaven.
    The character I would most like to meet is Claire Fraser from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Thanks for your generosity and please feel free to drop by and enter my giveaway too!

  134. I have always wanted to meet Anne Frank (The Diary of Anne Frank). I would love to just spend time with her and see the world through her eyes for an afternoon. I’d love to have your Cute and Colorful cover, but they are all adorable! Thanks for this offer! ~Tara, taraefsmith@gmaildotcom

  135. What character would you love to meet in real life and why?
    SOOO cheesy but I would want to meet Jamie Sullivan in Nicholas Sparks a walk to remember. She really just loved without any expectations and lived everyday by her beliefs and faith.
    Which cover would you prefer
    I love all of them!

  136. I would like to meet Dakota from The Friday Night Knitting Club series of books. She overcame adversity and started her own business! I like all of the book covers but Old Timey caught me eye! Thanks.

  137. Oh my – what lovely book covers, I haven’t seen anything like it before! My fav has to be Clean & Preppy with Cute & Colourful coming a VERY close second.
    Hmm character I would most like to meet? I am going to go against the grain here and NOT choose a classic like I probably should and go with Edward from the Twilight Saga – so cheesy I know but wouldn’t it be fun just once??
    I am participating in the giveaway too!

  138. Hi! I would love to meet Hamlet – did he really go crazy? Anyways, the book covers are very cute and I would like the Embroidery Experiment if my comment is chosen. Thanks! paisleyandplum (at) gmail (dot) com

  139. I would have loved to meet Cyrano De Bergerac, I’m a little bit french, and fell in love with him as teenager. I do married a guy with the big nose, but no writing love letters talent, so he would be the one. I wouldn’t swap men, but just for a while it would be fun…
    I would choose the first cover,my DD loves reading too, and I know she would love that one. She is 14 and is madly in love with Darcy, who figures.
    Have fun and thank you for this give away.

  140. I think I would love to meet several characters from several books but I really can’t decide who best so I’ll have to say either Artemis Fowl from the Artemis Fowl series or Hercule Poirot from Agatha Christie’s detective novels.
    Why? Well I’m very curious to know how their minds work!

    LOve Old Timey!


  141. I’d love to meet any of the characters from the Lord of the Rings, but especially Gandalf. I really like the embroidery book cover. My email is angela(dot)solomons(at)yahoo(dot)com
