One for the vintage sewing pattern lovers

Vintage sewing pattern lovers, you're in luck my friends! If you tune back in tomorrow, I'll be hosting a Christmas giveaway to give three of you the chance to win a pattern of your choice either from the 1940s, the 1950s or the 1960s.

Why am I doing this?

  1. It's almost Christmas and I'm feeling festive!
  2. I recently and gobsmackingly broke the 500 mark in terms of followers!!!
  3. I've had some pretty good luck with giveaways myself, so I want to share the love!

Since I started blogging almost three years ago, I've been the recipient of some totally awesome stuff. And very recently, I felt like I hit the jackpot when I won an unbelievably generous giveaway celebrating Megan Nielsen's one year anniversary. I can't thank you enough Megan!

The goodies came beautifully packaged in one of Megan Nielsen's specially designed shoppers.


Megan carefully picked out fabric from her own clothes line to match the patterns she sent me. I got some beautiful linen to match the Kelly Skirt, along with some branded bias binding and some handy fabric note cards! 


It doesn't end there! I also got some super-soft voile to match the Banksia Top, as well as some cute buttons, branded stickers and cool sew-in labels!


And as if I wasn't feeling lucky enough, within a few weeks I also received my Pay It Forward gift from the very talented Kat of Petticoats and Peplums. If you're unfamiliar with Kat's blog you must pop over and check out this lady's multiple talents - she bakes, she knits, she crochets and she sews...all perfectly too! And she takes beautiful pictures to boot! Thank you for my thoughtful gift Kat!

A handmade project bag for my knitting - just look at that tape measure fabric and cool pink lining - as well as a Knitter's Gauge and some Yarn Ball Point Protectors!

I realise that there are a hell of a lot of exclamation marks in this post, but what can I say...I'm excited and grateful! Have you received anything that's moved you lately?

Don't forget to tune in for my giveaway tomorrow...

  3. Why yes, in fact, I did recently win something AWESOME in a giveaway. It was 2m of flamingo jersey!! It arrived this past week and I love it. :)
    I will restrain myself from entering your next giveaway because I don't want to be TOO greedy...
