Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!

    loving those twirly skirts!

  22. Emily :

    That is so cute. I think I would like the easy-fit pants for boys and girls. My boys never have enough pajama’s or they are always dirty.

    I didn’t know sites like this existed, so I’m glad for the info. Maybe there is hope for me in the sewing category. ;)

  25. Chelsey :

    Maybe Easy Fit pants since I’m a beginner? It’s so hard to pick just one thing! Thanks for the giveaway…

  26. Anonymous :

    Those twirly skirts I just love them

  27. Tricia :

    Oh, I just found your site today! I love the “you can make it” site and have the “Miss Madeline, peasant dress” on my list of things to try. I’d love to get the e-book! I received a sewing machine for Christmas last year and I’ve been too afraid of it. 2009 is going to be my year to learn to sew! :) Can’t wait to check out the rest of your blog now! Oh, and I’m going to blog about your giveaway also!

  28. Shelley K. :

    Hey..that site is pretty cool. I would have to choose the Free Santa Pillowcase.

    Thanks for a great giveaway.

    I just bought a sewing machine and would love to have some books to go with it!

  31. Kristal :

    I’ve been looking for this one: Make Your Own T-Dress- Any Size!

    Kristalsblog at yahoo dot com

  32. Kelly :

    Okay, now you must choose me because I stalk this website. I sew for my little monkey and sell on the Bay. I’d go with the apron set personally.
    BTW, I’ve buttoned your blog and e-mailed you about it as well.

  33. laadw :

    I would make the chef hats because my twin 3.5 year old boys love to pretend to be chefs.

  34. SeahorseLady :

    I would pick “How to Make Glass Pendants” since they are so pretty. I’ve bought a few of them on Etsy and would love to learn to make them myself.

  35. gahome2mom :

    There are so many wonderful choices! I get their newsletter already. 1. Gigi's Guide to Faux & Cluster Fringe Bracelets and 2. Ribbon Socks. TY

  36. Emmi :

    Oh I would love this! It is beautiful :)


  37. Belinda Y :

    If I won I would buy "3 Perfectly Preppy Skorts & Skirts – Sizes 6 mo – 12 years! Doll sizes included" because my daughters have a wide age gap and I could use this pattern for both of them. I'm getting a sewing machine this Christmas (I hope!) so I would be absolutely thrilled to win.

  38. Kari :

    I’d love to win this! My daughter is getting a sewing machine for christmas. She’s 13 and is amazing!! The felt food book would be perfect for her!

  39. Kari :

    Im also a subscriber!!

  40. Kara :

    Touch choice, I would probably choose the round neck sundress or one of the felt foods (probably pizza party). What a fun site!

  41. emerzim :

    I would totally choose the Cakes and Brownies – Felt Food. So cute!

  42. formerSoCal :

    Now I have to go back and peruse the freebie section. But for now I would choose the Argyle Blues quilt instructions.

  43. Heather :

    My pick: How to Decoupage Shoes!

  44. Sarah :

    I’d have to think long and hard because there are so many that I want. Maybe Reggie the Reindeer? He’s adorable.

  45. Digital Misfit :

    I am a doll/stuffie person, so the Cute Penguin soft toy pattern is the one that steals my heart.

  46. Shel :

    I'd love the Fast & Fabulous Pillowcases…since I'm just learning to sew, this would be something cute and useful that I could handle for a first project.
