SMS Giveaway day!

Hello, if you are a newbie in these parts ~ Welcome and come say Hi!
Today I'm taking part in the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! Isn't it exciting!!!
So if you fancy winning some sewing and craft supplies then keep reading....

I've been asked recently why I don't do many tutorials on my blog. The answer....well I'm not really sure! Not sure if people would be interested! Not sure that I won't bore people to fall asleep at their computer! (You still awake!?)
Well get ready because I have been putting together a tutorial for cover buttons which I love as they are quick and easy and I tend to make them into magnets, as they make cute gift sets! I should have also used one on my iPad cover if I had planned what I was doing!
So here is a little kit to get one of you going!
The kit includes the cover button tool, 10 large 29mm cover button and two cute little buttons that I made for the tutorial. I will also be throwing in a some fat quarters from my fabric stash, possibly Amy Butler Gypsy Caravan! (It's not a big stash but it is pretty!)
  • So just leave a comment for a chance of winning!
  • Giveaway is open to everyone - I'm willing to ship internationally.
  • The giveaway will close on May 25th.
  • I will email the winner, so please make sure I can contact you through your comment or leave an email address.
Have fun and hope to see you around here again soon!!
P.S ~ I will be putting up the tutorial sometime this week.
P.P.S ~ Please make sure if you are a no reply blogger you leave an email address otherwise your entry will not count!

Cricket said...

I, for one, would be happy for a covered button tutorial. It's one of those things that I always think I would love, but have no idea how to do. Confession: I actually have some button blanks I bought a year ago but then had no idea how to proceed. I'm sure I could have figured it out, but it sure would be nice if you would paint me a picture of the process.
