Enter For A Chance To Win “Happy Home” By Jennifer Paganelli



### This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Tina from California! ###

I’m not a serious sewer, but I have fun with what I make and I try to surprise myself every so often by pushing my skills to the next level. When I’m in the market for a new book, I usually hit the gardening and decorating shelves first and then end up browsing the latest sewing books in search of learning one more tip to help me stretch my skills and get inspired.

Recently, I came across  Jennifer Paganelli’s latest book, “Happy Home”. It only took me only about 1 minute to know that this book was for me. I loved it so much I thought I’d offer it as a giveaway for Family Chic readers today.  “Happy Home” has over 20 fun sewing and craft projects, with patterns included, to help you make stunning drapes, pillows, banners, aprons and more. The instructions are easy to follow and the projects create useful, great looking items that add a cheery feel to the home.

To enter for a chance to win your own copy, leave your contact information in the “comments” section of this post or email me at camilla@family-chic.com. Deadline for entry is August 25, 2012, 12:00 AM/CST. One entry per person. Winner chosen at random. Winner will be contacted via email. Good Luck!

"Happy Home" by textile designer, Jennifer Paganelli is packed full of fun and vibrant sewing projects. Easy to understand instructions and stunning photography will make you want to break out the sewing machine asap!

Bright colors and happy patterns abound — I particularly like her ruffled pillows.
