Monster Hoodie Giveaway

hoodie-setI've been known to go overboard once in a great while. ahem.

Last February, I bought a bunch of hoodies, on sale for a terrific price. They would make terrific gifts, and maybe I could even sell a few!

I had to buy rubbermaid totes to house all the hoodies, and then I lost motivation.

All year long, I've been housing rubbermaid totes of hoodies that I don't want to deal with anymore. It's time for them to move.

So, here's the deal. I'm making them in to monsters as fast as I can. I'm giving away as many as I can to people that I know for their birthdays. To date, this has been about 20.

I still have 18 hoodies. Six are set aside for Christmas. That leaves 12.

Six are listed in my etsy shop (created for the sole purpose of getting rid of these hoodies that are consuming my basement). I'm working furiously to get more in there.

And one (or more), will be given away, right here, right now.

Here's the deal. Go to my etsy shop. Decide who you know that would like one of these. Then come back here leaving me a comment with the name and age of the person that would like one. I'll randomly generate a winning number and email you. (Oh, leave you email address too, blogger doesn't tell me those things).

Then, I'll make a hoodie for that person. You'll get to pick the size and the basic colors, if you wish (limited to the stock I have). Then I'll ship that hoodie to you, free.

Sound ok?

You have until Wednesday evening to enter -- it's a quick one because I want to get that hoodie made and shipped yet this week!

SewMamaSew has suggested that we keep these open a bit longer, to give everyone a chance to enter. I'll be closing this on Friday, December 5th instead of tonight. Thanks everyone!

Welcome Internet Cafe readers! Notice that htis contest is a short one -- it's over on the evening of Friday December 5th, so enter quickly!


For a 15% discount in my store, enter SewMamaSew when you buy!

  1. I would Luuurve one of these and am pretty sure my fiance would love it if I had one too as it'd stop me stealing his all the time and covering it in 'girl smell':)
    So a mens L (the dark grey is gorgeous)would be perfect if this is open to international readers?

  2. Very interesting giveaway :)
    It's always difficult to choose a present for my sister's husband, so this would be a great present for him :)
    His name is Dmitry & he is 28.
    One more time - very interesting idea ;)

  6. My 14 yo daughter wants one of these SO bad. These just scream her name LOL! She's a men's size small or a child's size 14/16.

  10. Those are all sorts of cute! I'm really quite torn between being in love with a teeny tiny pink one for my 3 year old daughter and wanting one for myself! Ella is a size 5, but a slightly larger one would be just fine as she is growing like a weed. my email is nicole at rimestimes dot net
    Thanks for such an adorable giveaway!

    These are sooooo funny! I love them!
    I would get one for one of my kids.
    Just tell me the sizes you have and I
    will let you know.
    I have 4 kids so you have gotta have one
    that would fit one of them.
    Thanks a million
