Contest time! I need help! Enter to WIN!
I need help naming a new product for our shop!
Read further to find out how you could win THREE FREE Undies just for YOU!
I’ve been working with a new pattern for our undies, the scrundlewear pattern: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/203246106/scrundlewear-ladies-underwear-pdf-sewing?ref=shop_home_feat_1
Many of you have asked for more size options in our undies, and this pattern provides us with just that! We will now be able to offer sizes xsmall all the way up to xxxlg!
We also have the option for briefs (similar to our previous regular undies) or boy short styles!
For now, we’ll be sticking with the briefs but I like having the option to add boy shorts in the future.
I’ve changed up the pattern just a teeny bit, to work best with our cloth pads. Basically I’ve just narrowed the gusset a little, as I find I do like a wide gusset with cloth pads, to hold everything in place well, BUT if the gusset is TOO wide with the addition of the knit leg bands, it can cause a little bunching. No one wants bunching. I feel this is a real nice fit between holding it all in place, and keeping things trim. I hope you agree!
I’d like us to come up with our very own name for our completed undies. They will still be scrundlewear, and I will have the scrundlewear info in every listing because believe you me, any undies pattern maker deserves all the credit they can get! Undies are NOT easy to design! I’ve been working at some patterns for 10 years now and I STILL don’t have them the way I want them! LOL And that’s just working on 2 sizes for now, mine, and some of my daughters! So credit must be given where credit is due! If you’d like to make your own undies, I really suggest you try the scrundlewear pattern. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
Onto the contest details!
I’d really like a catchy name. Something that fits with Homestead Emporium and all that we stand for. Simple living, homesteading lifestyle, family life, natural living, etc.. If you’ve been around our business (blog, facebook, etc.) long enough you’ll know what I’m getting at. If you’re new to our business and family, just take a quick look around and it won’t be hard to tell what’s important to us.
The skies the limit in your suggestions, give me your best ideas for names! Feel free to enter as many name ideas as you like! To give yourself MORE chances to win, enter a NEW COMMENT for each additional new name!
Remember though, this will be judged by our family so in order to win, your name suggestion has to be GREAT! So get creative, but keep it real.
Tips on what we’ll be looking for in a name:
-MOST IMPORTANTLY- google any name you suggest to be sure it’s not already taken! Of course we’ll have to go more in-depth into searching any name we choose as a winner, but we ask that you at least google it, just for a quick pre-check. A name that’s already taken, can not be a winner, no matter how great it may be.
-Something that’s catchy, but not too ‘cutesy’.
-Something that fits with our lifestyle & business goals.
-Completely FAMILY FRIENDLY, no use of words that you wouldn’t say in front of a young child. Keep it clean and fun!
-Bonus points for something that’s catchy, but still easy to spell. Feel free to go for an acronym. Many call our pads HER pads for Homestead Emporium Reusable Pads. We like that, and think it’s catchy. However, HER Undies doesn’t quite make the cut. LOL Most undies are reusable. And well. HE Undies just isn’t right either, since there’s no men’s undies in our undie line up, yet! However, we will be offering children’s undies, so keep that in mind. Bonus points again for a name that works with ANY undies we may create, regardless of age and gender.
-Creativity. We really do love all things unique!
-Beautiful/artful would be a big plus. Remember, we love ‘class’ (although we do like humor too, just keep it at a classy level). We strive for our products to be functional, but also beautiful. Often our customers call our products a work of art, we’d like a name that reflects that same goal for our line up of undies.
THE GRAND PRIZE!
The winner of our naming contest will receive THREE FREE Undies, in their size choice, & their fabric choice (to be chosen from our instock fabrics).
We’ll even pay the shipping!! The value for this prize is over $70.00!
As a bonus, because we know not everyone can come up with creative unique names (hey, we can’t, or we obviously wouldn’t be asking YOU all for help!) we’re going to give away an additional prize just for sharing this post, and commenting here! Somewhere, out there, is some naming genius who would love some free undies and a chance to win them! So help spread the word, share this post on facebook, twitter, pinterest, where ever you choose! Come back here and leave a comment letting us know how you shared. Every one of those comments will be entered for your own FREE Underwear! You get to pick the size, we’ll surprise you with the fabric (but your likes and dislikes will be taken into consideration in the creation of your Undies). So share with others and spread the word for your chance to win too!
