Giveaway time!

A warm welcome to everyone who is visiting me today from Sew, Mama, Sew! as part of their giveaway day. (and of course welcome to everyone else who is visiting just because!) I hope you enjoy your stay and have the chance to have a quick look around my blog. I am new to the whole blogging thing - I have been following a few blogs for over a year and as my interest in sewing and quilting grew so did my blog list! I finally decided to take the plunge and start a blog partly to record my efforts but also to get involved with things like this - everyone is so generous with their time and creativity that I wanted to return some of what I have been enjoying. So onto my giveaway! I decided that although I am still a novice when it comes to sewing I wanted to have a go making something for you, albeit something simple. I know that what I have created won't compare to some of the amazing things out there on offer but hopefully my efforts will be able to find a new home somewhere!

My first giveaway is for these two raggedy hearts. They were lots of fun to make and pretty straightforward too. I have written a tutorial in case you would like to have a go making a raggedy heart of your own.






My second giveaway is for a little taggie blanket. I made one for my six month old baby boy and he adores it - there is just something about babies and ribbons that seem to go together!



If you would like to be entered into one or indeed both giveaways please leave a comment. I look forward to visiting your blogs and hopefully discovering some more lovely craftiness out there. Thanks for visiting and good luck!

  2. Hello- I like those hearts! I would love to hang one on my baby's bedroom door. Cute! She is too old for a taggie, I think, so I hope another baby wins that one.

  55. LOVING the tag blanket! I keep promising my 7 motnh old nephew I'll make him one, but it's really hard to take it seriously when he just looks at me and drools and grins and goes back to eating the tag on his stuffed animal. So you'd actually be keeping my promise for me if I win...lol.
