May Giveaway 5 Day Event

CONGRATULATIONS TO ANNIE K. WHO, BEING THE 48TH PERSON TO COMMENT, WAS PICKED BY RANDOM.ORG.  

Thank you to everybody who entered and, if you didn’t win but would like to try making one of my boxes, the PDF tutorial is available to buy here.

Doesn’t everybody like the thrill of the chase, the excitement of wondering whether you will win, the thought you might actually get something for nothing?  I do.

One of my readers alerted me to SewMamaSew’s  Giveaway Day which happens twice a year. Giveaway Day is a  HUGE event they coordinate where everyone with a shop or blog can give something away and, because it has been so successful, this event is going to last 5 days instead of one.   I’ve not only decided to go and scout round everybody else’s blogs  to see what they are up and to see  if I can actually win something for a change but I have also decided to join in and offer a giveaway of my own.

Not for the lazy or faint hearted amongst you, I am giving away one of the PDF tutorial patterns for my own design fabric covered étui box.  The tutorial has lots of photographs and, hopefully, you will end up with a neat little treasure box, memory box, trinket box or sewing box like the above, or this –

or this –

 Intermediate sewing skills are needed – for neatness! – and the wish to get a little bit icky and sticky as there is gluing involved.

If you want a chance to win a copy of my tutorial sent direct to your email address, wherever you are in the world,  just leave a comment below – polite and/or amusing would be great but not obligatory – and I will draw the winner on May 25th as per the instructions from SewMamaSew – although 17h pacific time is 01h in the morning here in France so I might leave it until I get up on the morning of the 26th if you don’t mind.

If you want to participate in the May Giveaway Day by entering other giveaways or by offering something on your own blog please click here for details.

    Glue and I get along very well. I just used a glue gun to help with installing back splash in my bathroom, it helped hold it in place while the caulking cured. It is fun to make something alittle different, these would be great gifts . Love tutorials. Thanks.

  58. #58 by Mhairi on May 23, 2012 - 15:03

    Not sure it is a good idea to let me near glue – I always end up with it everywhere and very sticky but I love your boxes so I would love the chance to try to stay clean. Or have a wash cloth nearby so it ends up as beautiful as your examples.

  59. #59 by wendy on May 23, 2012 - 15:28
