Moon Munkie Mystery Make Giveaway Experiment

*This competition is now closed. Winners will be announced soon.*

I so enjoyed taking part in Sew Thankful last week. It was great to be talking with people from all over the place who sew all kinds of things. It’s given me confidence to attempt an experiment which I’ve been wanting to try for a while. And here it is: the Moon Munkie Mystery Make. I have 4 mystery parcels. They are bursting at the seams with beautiful bits and pieces from my stash. The packages are almost identical in content: more than 20 items in each. Some vintage some more modern, with a colour theme running through. I want to give them away. Would you like one?

If you do, then read on and see the guidelines for the giveaway.

1) They need to go to people with sewing or crafting type blogs which are updated at least weekly. Regularly. Weekly is too hard when we’re all busy making.

2) From the date you receive the parcel, you have 4 weeks to create something inspired by the items in the parcel.

3) You may use all or some of the items in the parcel and you may add from your own stash or buy additional items.

5) At the end of the 4 weeks (or before if you’re quick!) you agree to blog about the item you made (with a link to Moon Munkie) and the processes you went through – with pictures of course!  You can also blog as you go along if you like.  A tutorial for making your item is not essential, but would be appreciated!

6) I will also blog about the challenge. I’ll link to your blog from mine and from my facebook page. So hopefully your blog will get lots of extra visits, too.

 7) Optional You could then do the same sort of thing. Offer 4 packages from your stash to other crafters. I wonder how far it would spread?  I hope you will do this, but I don’t want to make it mandatory in case it puts people off joining in. [Edit: I didn’t mean for people to do this until they’re ready. It’s not a condition for entering.]

So, if you think this would be fun grab the Moon Munkie Mystery Make button and show it on your blog, so other people can hear and take part. Then leave a comment below to tell me a bit about you. Put a link to your blog. I’ll leave the competition open until Tuesday 21st February and then I’ll use a random number generator to pick four people.

I do hope that lots of people want to take part. I’m thinking of making it a regular feature if it’s popular.

  1. Now that would be an interessting challenge – I would join if it’s open for international entries (I’m asking .. better safe than sorry) I wouldn’t mind giving away a parcel too (maybe not that many) I just doubt I would get enough answer if I offered them…


  2. What a great idea. I found your blog through the Sew Grateful Week. I would love to get a mystery package. I try and blog once a week, and this would motivate me to do more postings

    I might even be able to make a few of my own packages, it would force me to go through my stash!!!


  3. This is a great idea , as it was the sew grateful week. I don’t know if I will be able to offer four packages from my stash, but maybe I could make one. I will make a post about this challenge in my blog in the next days. But do I have to make the giveaway now or it has to be in another moment?


    1. You don’t need to make the giveaway at all. It’s an option. I hope that the people who win might decided that they can pass it on. But even if they don’t, that’s fine. So I’ll enter you in the draw and let’s see what happens! (Of course, if you wanted to run your own competition the same as mine, that’s cool too!)


  4. I am soooo into this idea! I love the idea of sharing and creating and giving others the chance to do some more of the same. 🙂 I’ll post about it by the end of the week. 😀


      1. Just wanted to let you know that I’ll join in in the giveaway portion, regardless of whether I randomly win one of your packages. I think the idea is good enough to propogate a little further, so I hope you don’t mind! (If so, I’ll just remove the post and send out a retraction.)


      2. I love it!! Go right ahead. I’d be grateful for the publicity if you felt you could mention it was mu idea, but you don’t have to. I just want us all to get to know each other better. I’m fairly new and everyone has been so kind to me. And so encouraging. Let’s keep it going!


  5. oh this idea is brilliant!! I love it! my blog isn’t all sewing and crafting, it’s a lot of different things…would I still be able to participate? 🙂 I’ll promise to post more crafty/sewing projects – I have them I just don’t usually think to blog them, haha.
    I wish I had more things in my stash so I could do something like this! I’m moving around quite a few times this year so I left a lot in storage…I’ll see what I can find though, because this sounds like so much fun!
