Hello folks - and welcome to any people who have popped over here from Sew Mama Sew for the Giveaway Day extravaganza!!!
My little blog is where I share my adventures into learning to sew - both clothes and accessories. Feel free to browse around and see what I've been up to over the last year or so. I have a couple of fun tutorials as well - so do check them out, and if you try them I'd love to share the results on here too.
But, let's get down to the goods shall we?! Without further ado, here are the goodies up for grabs in the giveaway today:
Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol
1 length of baby blue gathered lace
1 length of Scandinavian style ribbon
1 bag of multi-colour beads
1 bag of baby blue beads
So the main event is the wonderful book by Amy Karol: Bend the Rules Sewing. Here is the blurb about the book from Amazon:
Author Amy Karol brings stitchers everywhere a down-to-earth introduction to sewing, including thirty projects so adorable and cool they'll inspire anyone to pick up a needle and thread. Written with Amy's characteristic warmth and flair, you'll find information on basic equipment and supplies, advice on choosing and using fabrics and a fantastic section on techniques. In addition, Amy walks readers through easy, inspiring patterns designed for the fashion-savvy crafter. Playful, modern projects, which include pillows, aprons and purses, help novices master sewing skills while providing immediate sewing gratification and confidence. Best of all, Amy explains whats easy, whats hard and when not to sweat the small stuff. With its best-friend tone, solid reference section and super cute projects, this is the introduction to sewing that you wont want to be without.
There really are so many brilliant, fun, quick and easy projects in the book.Why don't you check out the Flickr page to see some of the things people have made from the book.
If you would like to be in for a chance to get your hands on these goodies then leave me a comment below telling me what crafty things you plan to do this Summer and/or tell me about you own blog if you have one, as I'd love to discover new blogs. I will ship Internationally, so everyone is welcome to enter - the more the merrier! The giveaway is open until the end of the day on Wednesday 25th May. After that I will pick a winner using the Random Number Generator and will announce it on Friday 27th May.
