Day 7 - Giveaway Day (NOW CLOSED)

I have finally reached 100 posts :) It has only taken me 23 months! lol

So now I am having my very first giveaway. It is a wristlet/small bag/clutch/whatever you really want to call it :) Ever since I made one to match my dress back in March, I have been wanting to make another. And here it is.

It is made from a gorgeous cotton canvas-y type fabric with white flowers and ladybugs on the outer, and lined in calico. It has a triangle ring with a swivel clip attaching the strap - this is so you can take the wrist strap off if you don't want to use it. Big enough to fit some cash/cards, your phone (i-phone size) and your keys.

So how to enter. Easy - leave a comment and a way for me to contact you if you win. If you care to tell me what your favourite post has been over the last 23 months, that will get you a second entry ;)
If you are a follower, then I will pop in an extra little thing if you win. Happy to post worldwide.
The giveaway will close on the 22nd of October midnight Perth time. I will draw the winner either by or with the help of my kids on Sunday :)

So what are you waiting for - go comment!

100 posts, Mabrook (as they say over here - there is your arabic lesson for the day;-) ).

I have no idea when the post was but I remember that old sewing machine you go at a yard sale, it was a Rolls I think and also that old singer. I just love the old machines.

humel said...

This is just the cutest little clutch! :-)

My fave post would be the one about making soap, because (a) it posted on my birthday, and (b) the marbling in the photo is just so gorgeous :-)

Thanks for the chance to win! x

I'm a new follower - have just been browsing your blog though, you make some lovely pieces of clothing! I particularly liked SUNDAY, JULY 4, 2010 "Another Birthday, Another Year Older" - it's funny how birthday's affect people differently! And those trousers were a fab way to move on up :)
