200th Post Giveaway

Giveaway now closed.

Yes, this is my 200th post, in approx 1.5 years, so it's high time I give something away, as I've gained so much from so many other bloggers. Free patterns, free tutorials, free advice and lovely encouraging comments have got me to where I am today!




I never would have known about Anna Maria Horner, Amy Carol, Ruth Singer, Heathers Bailey and Ross, their books and fabrics. Plus all the other wonderful bloggers that I read weekly, too many to mention.


I also would never have made this style of bag had it not been for the generosity of Made by Rae.




So as a little thank you, and as this is the bag of the moment, I am giving away the Buttercup bag below, in the Garden Party Navy flower fabric. It has a limey yellow-green lining and interfacing, so it is more substantial than my original one.




If you would like the above bag, please post me a comment and I'll pick a winner randomly next Tuesday 7th April, late at night!
