OK if you ‘like’ me on Facebook you might well be aware of my recent good fortune:
I won a $50 gift voucher on the 12 Gifts of Christmas blog hop at Little Big Girl Studio, the voucher was for Pink Castle Fabrics – I’ve spent it already (although I did spend ages choosing) and am just waiting for the fabric to arrive from the US. If you missed the blog hop organised by Jennifer at Ellison Lane then I highly recommend that you pop over here for links to 12 great tutorials for gifts to sew, I’ve put them on my list and just need to find the time!
And then was delighted to read that I won 2nd prize! It was great to win something based on skill and talent rather than just luck! Which brings me on to:
Back in August I wrote a post about the Christmas Creativity Competition that The Sewing Directory was running. To be honest at the time of writing I had no intention of entering, mostly to do with the fact that in my mind Christmas was a long way away, and Leah was just about to start school. However, things change I had a little plan in the back of my mind to make something for Christmas and then with a week before the closing date of the competition I decided to go for it!
I wrote a tutorial for Christmas patchwork bunting and here is the finished item:
I’ll share the tutorial soon so you can make your own.
So, as I mentioned on my facebook page last week I feel like paying forward some of my good fortune.
I’m offering up 3 prizes and the winner gets to choose one from these!
- A bundle of 10 vintage sheet fat quarters – a random selection from my stash (although if the winner wants this they can specify any particular colours or prints).
- A mini crayon wallet of your choice – ideal for having in your bag to whip out anywhere your child is in need of distraction/entertainment, my girls carry them in their bags everywhere.
- A reusable grocery bag made from vintage sheets:
More photo’s of vintage fabrics here.
These are great, I keep one in my handbag or under the buggy ready for those unexpected purchases (in my case in the charity shop!).
Any of these would make splendid Christmas gifts, or you could even make your own gifts using the vintage FQ’s!
So what would you like to win?
To enter: I’d like you to jump up and down on the spot 10 times, recite your favourite nursery rhyme backwards and then leave me a comment telling me which item you would choose if you won and why. Giveaway now closed.
You don’t have to follow me, like me on facebook, tweet about this, blog about it – but if you want to feel free!
I will ship internationally and will close the giveaway Wednesday 9th November at 9pm UK time.
Good luck – someone has to win, it could be you!
