Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!

Hello all! And welcome if you've popped by from Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!

I really enjoyed seeing all the giveaways last time and thought I'd join in the fun this time around. I'm going to giveaway a Noodlehead Open Wide Pouch which measures around 8.5" wide x 7" high x 4" deep - big enough as a project bag or for all your necessities. I love these bags, they hold sooo much stuff!!!1

And because it seems rude to send such a big bag off all empty I'm going to include all these scraps too. There's around 65g in weight and a right old mix of fabrics - some Amy Butler, Nordika, Pat Bravo and some that I'm not so sure of! I've tried to make sure that nothings smaller than 2.5" square and there are some odd shapes too, just so you know! Good for patchwork, scrap vomits or whatever takes your fancy. I've tried to include a rainbow of colours so there should be something you like!!!!! 

Ah, doesn't it all fit together nicely?!


I'm going to keep it really easy and just ask you to leave me a comment letting me know what you're looking forward to over Christmas. For me, it's doing a bit of hand-stitching that I can fit in around the cooking of the turkey and house visitors!

The giveaway will be open until 1am GMT on Saturday 14th December (5pm PST Friday 13th December), is open internationally and will be drawn at random, although I plan on being asleep at 1am so you may not find out until later on the Saturday!

Thanks for popping by - please feel free to have a nose around and don't forget to check out all the other fabulous giveaways that are available too. And just so you know things don't always go smoothly around here, my 'helper' thought it was hilarious fun photo-bombing with his football slippers!!!
