Blogiversary Giveaway

I know it’s a little random. Some of you already know, I do not do things the same way as others. My blog turned 9 in January 2021, but I sort of missed it. At this point people would wait until the 10 years mark and plan ahead. However, I am quite impulsive when it comes to my sewing. This applies to the planning of blog posts. As a result, I totally missed the deadline for a giveaway in January and I really do not want to wait until next year to celebrate by blogiversary.

For this I’ve raided my books and pattern stash and split the whole lot into 5 gifts to share the love of sewing with more than one person.

Note that although some of the patterns have been used they still have all the sizes as I usually trace the patterns when I make them and keep the original as master copy.

Without further ado, please see below the details of how to enter and what you can get if you win.

The prizes:

Prize 1 – Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes and The English Tea dress from Simple Sew
Prize 2 – Amy Butler’s style stitches and The Weekend Tote from Simply Sewing
Prize 3 – Simply Sewing’s – City Backpack, Riley Backpack, Plushie Deer, Girl’s Party Dress, Oversize Tote and Apron Dress Set
Prize 4 – Simple Sew’s Colour Block Tunic, Lena Wrap Dress, Bella Dress, Amelia Tea Dress, Jersey Dress and Top and Sienna Dress
Prize 5 – Simple Sew’s Lottie Blouse & Skirt, Two in One Skirt collection, Jackie O’ Jacket, Notch Collar Jacket, Chelsea Collection and Stylish Shell Top
Prize 6 – £20 gift voucher form Minerva

A word of warning, due to postage costs, the entry for the prizes 1 to 5 is limited to UK only residents. However, I also wanted to say ‘Thank you!’ to my readers who live outside UK so I included a gift card as one of the prizes which can be used worldwide.
