Give Aways! 4m of Fabric and a 1949 Pattern

As promised - here is the giveaway!

I am doing two separate ones:

4m of this lovely medium-weight 100% cotton:


The colour in the photo is pretty much true to colour. It would be great for skirts and dresses. It might be too stiff for a blouse though. 

The second giveaway is this pattern - Simplicity 3075 from 1949. I just saw it for sale for $35!!!! It is complete, and in good vintage condition.



Now, here are my give away rules:

  1. To enter, you must become a follower of my blog, and leave a comment to this post. If you already are, just remind me in your comment :-)
  2. Make sure your name/blogging identity is visible.
  3. You can enter for either the fabric or the pattern, and must specify which you'd like in your comment.
  4. If you want to enter both, feel free, but leave me two separate comments (one for each). This will be easier for me with my broken wrist (I promise there is a rationale behind that).
  5. I'll post anywhere in the world - it'll just be via slow mail.
  6. The entries will close on Tuesday night at 8pm, my time.
  7. Good luck!
Let me know if you've got any questions.

I'm personally waiting for the Colette Patterns sale to start - check out the Colette Patterns blog if you're interested - you have to become a newsletter subscriber to take advantage of the sale.

  21. Popbabe7 - Don't feel intimidated by Colette Patterns - they are so well drafted and the instructions so thorough, any skill level would be fine with them. Plus - you won't be a beginner forever, why not put them in your stash til you're ready?

  42. Hi Rachel

    Thanks for the comment on my flower headband. I am thinking that I will put these into the shop but not until uni and exams are over so probably not for at least a month. But I can make you one before that if you like. Email me on ksultanie(at)yahoo(dot)com and we can discuss the colours and prices.

  43. Ooh, I'm throwing my hat into the ring for the pattern -- it's even in my size! I'm so sorry to hear about your wrist -- when I broke my arm years ago it was awful. You don't realize how much you need two hands until you lose one.

    ReplyDelete
