Giveaway is closed. Winner announced here.
Hello dear readers,
As I've mentioned previously, I planned on having 12 giveaways this year. This is the first one. I finally sorted out my "sewing room" aka family study room. I moved a few pieces of furniture around and over the weekend I cleared the remaining clutter and got the chance to access my sewing machine.
This little lunchtime drawstring pouch is what I'm giving away. Yes, just the one pouch. The props and hearts aren't included. It took me under an hour to sew this little pouch together. I had already picked out the fabric so sewing it together is really easy. I'll be honest with you. I really enjoyed making this pouch. For quite a long time, I've been sewing like a robot. The whole process of choosing the fabric, taking my time and not worrying about whether it will sell is really so liberating. I'm so in the mood to sew some more now!
If you're a regular reader, you'll probably know my pouch is based on my Perfect Size Reversible Lunchtime Pouch pattern which is available as a pdf download at Etsy and Craftsy. Take note the pdf pattern does not cover patchwork and some folks do take over an hour to make the first one. (it's not a competition)
Because I can, I take liberties with my own pattern. The exterior is made up of simple patchwork - just a few pieces of fabric pieced together.
This is the lining. Are you drooling over the cute bicycles print? Suzee of AppleHead Threads gifted it to me. I only used a small amount and I have some left. I promise I'll use some of the remaining fabric to make something nice for myself.
The round bottoms are so pinchable! Like xiao long bao? (little dragon dumplings)
Have I got you excited? Well the lunchtime drawstring pouch can be yours if you enter my giveaway and win.

My fantasy job is this: I have a booth where I sew and embroider on a canvas and people pay to watch me work. It's sort of like being a busker except I sew instead of sing and the booth is air-conditioned. (I live near the equator for god's sake)
