April Giveaway- First Choice Boxers for Dad!

Here's a fun giveaway for this month.  Father's Day is coming up in June.  If you win this giveaway, you will receive your winning in early May, which gives you about a month to make Dad a fun Father's Day gift.

The winner will receive the First Choice Boxers pattern (adult sizes small to XXL) as well as your choice of conversation fabric to make a pair.  Heck- I think I'll even throw in the elastic for the waist band!  You can see a closer image and description of the fabrics in the "Conversation Prints" category on my website.

To enter, you just have to comment to THIS POST and ask to be entered.  That's all there is to it!

If you want a second entry, if you are a follower of this blog (new or long time reader) do a SECOND comment to THIS POST and tell me that you are a follower.  It's important that you do a second comment because I count the total number of entries by counting the comments.

If you have a blog of your own, you can get a third entry by mentioning my giveaway on your blog and making an additional comment on this post.  You can do a blog post or put it on your sidebar- whatever you like.

The winner will be announced on May 1st.

Just to be clear- you get the pattern and ONE of the fabric options.  You have to make the boxers yourself. :-)

As a general rule, if you comment on any of my blog posts, I try to reply to you in a private message.  But for general giveaway entries, I don't. If you see your comment at the end of this post- you're entered!  If you are a "no-reply" blogger, I won't ever be able to reply, which can be a real problem if you win!  Speaking of no-reply bloggers, I'll be doing a post on how to tell if you are... so stay tuned.

Good luck with the giveaway.  This is a fun one!
