Give-away time!

Hello to all my wonderful readers! I'm here to invite you to partake in this give-away that I am hosting. It's my very first give-away so I'm not expecting resounding record breaking entries but I did want to throw it out there for all the sewing love I've received over the past year and 6 months.


On the give-away table I have 4 yards of watercolour floral chiffon which is the pink version to the dress of my last post. Isn't it lovely! Because it's four yards I may cut it in two 2 yard pieces depending on how many folks enter.




I want to say special thanks to one of my sewing blogger buddies who has made me feel quite special over the last year or so by liking and commenting on probably every one of my posts. She is Sally from The quirky Peach. You definitely are lovely indeed and of course your sewing is admirable! Since Sally offered to do a swap just incase I wasn't feeling up to the give-away I am sending her some fabric (what else can I possibly send?) Since I know she has like too many items in her stash right now I'm hoping this one would be useful in the near future when the colder months roll on. It's a floral flannel fabric and I hope you could get a nice shirt or PJ's out of it. Sally you are still welcome to enter the give-away along with everyone else :)


There are others new and older friends who've contributed to me enjoying this side thing that I do and I appreciate everyone of you. Danielle and Hana, thanks!

Okay guys I'm looking forward to this I think. To enter just comment below and let me know what you might do with this fabric. I will use a randomisation process to chose who the fabric will go to. Feel free to spread the word. Entries close on June 11th 2014.

Have a great day and God bless!

  1. I won't be entering the giveaway (the fabric is lovely, but won't fit in my daily life), but I just wanted to encourage you a little by leaving a comment! Hope lots of people enter. :)

    1. Awwww Sally, I really am glad you're part of my sewing and cyber life :) I'll email you sometime to get address etc. It's quite challenging doing this over in Trinidad because frankly few people give a hoots toot so I'm glad I have you international gals with me.

  3. That fabric is just glorious! As for what to make with it, I think I'd either go with some kind of floaty sleeveless blouse (a la Victory Patterns' Roxanne) or a satisfyingly swishy summer skirt - I've had my eye on Megan Nielson's Cascade for a while now....Fingers crossed! And thanks for such a generous giveaway!

  5. Hello dear! I am so glad that you mentioned my name as one of your sewing buddy, you are a very sweet person :)
    The floral chiffon is very pretty and I think it will be perfect for a summer dress - kind of floaty dress :) Thank you so much for giving a chance to win this lovely give away. I enjoyed your blog and everything you made are so pretty. Happy sewing!
