Its Giveaway Time......


Hello guys and gals, I am ready to do my 107th post giveaway
(was suppose to be 100th, but hey who's counting! ;D)

Now I am giving away 7 items to represent every swap I have been involved in....
now the hawked eyed among you will notice only 6 things in the picture....
aha... I am still making the cosy crochet swap item so one item will be a surprise should you be the lucky winner.....

Now whats in the picture I hear you ask....
1. well the Rabbit represents the first swap I did which was an Easter swap...

(be kind, I don't do much sewing and I made this one up, not good with patterns!)

2.The fabric box represents the freestyle swap I did
(also be kind, I did follow a Tilda pattern but I don't think its Tilda standard!)

3. The heart cushion, hangy thing is not embroidered by me... but an embroidered pillow case I re purposed, the back is the pink and white polka dot fabric that the rabbit's trousers and box are made from...

Now back into my comfort zone... crocheted items!

4. The dog represents my Seaside swap and he's a cute little Sea dog!

5. And the stripey covered photo album is to represent my Friends Swap... so that you can keep lovely pictures of all your loved ones inside some lovely pure wool stripes... I was going to felt it but I haven't played with felting yet and I have no idea how much it shrinks...

6. The crochet swirly rose is to obviously represent my rose swap, it has a broach pin on the back , so you can pop it on a bag or on yourself!

7. Cosy Crochet is still in progress...

I hope you like my bits and bobs, and I will leave the giveaway open till Tuesday 1st of September....Leave a comment and I will get Jamie to pull the winning name from a hat .. all 7 prizes will go to one lucky winner, I am happy for anyone to join in and I don't mind posting abroad....

Good luck
Alex
