A Week of Giveaways - Day 3

When I started sewing I had plans to not only do clothes but also accessories, home decoration items and other small crafty items, like pincushions or little fabric hearts and flowers. I dabbled on it but have to confess small sewing bores me to death. I have no patience to do crafty little things, which is a shame as they are so many things you can do to utilise fabric scraps. Every now and again I "force" myself on a small project but have to confess find little satisfaction in it. I often say I love sewing but I guess I should say I love dressmaking.

The items (yes, items; today's prize is a lot) up for grabs today are all part of my early intentions to do crafty stuff and will be sent to one lucky winner, who I hope will use them and get some sort of satisfaction it can't give me.
 - One Simplicity pattern for 10 pillows designs
 - About 2 meters of bright green organza/ tulle, with a corner cut out
 - About 1 meter of dark green felt, with a small corner cut out
 - 5 A4 felt sheets, various colours
 Not in the photo above but as part of this craft pack is some ribbon and some other small surprise crafty items. I just have too  much of it that I won't use.

All this is part of one prize for today. If craft is your thing or you have children and know you can use these items, please enter. I'm dying to get rid of it ;)

To enter this giveaway is simple:
1) You have to be a follower on my blog
2) Leave a comment on this post telling me what crafty hobbies you have
3) Very important, leave your email address. I had trouble in the past contacting people because not all profiles allow access to email.

The giveaway is open to my readers all over the world and deadline for entry is Sunday 26th June 2011, 6pm GMT time. Winner will be announced the following day.

Good Luck!!


  1. Fantastic prize!

  2. Cute prize! :) I enjoy jewellery making, though I'm still very much a beginner. I like making little purse type bags with zips. Bags in general, though I haven't gotten past the tote bag stage really, but I'd like to. I've never actually tried cushions so I'd love to give it a go :)

  3. Oooh what I fantastic giveaway! I will try my hand at anything crafty, so far I have made purses, bags, felt flowers and jewellery although I am still just a beginner at all of these. I have made cushions too but I just made up the pattern so it would be great to have something to follow! My email is

  4. Wow, what a generous prize!
    I love papercrafts (scrapbooking and cardmaking), as well as lampwork beadmaking and jewellery making. Have just rediscovered sewing after a break of about 20 years, and my daughters are keen to have a go by making some cushions.
