September/October 2014 Giveaway

Giveaway is closed.


I was going to wait for a blue clear sky to take photos for my giveaway but looks like the monsoon season is here to stay.

Once again, I am going to pick 2 winners. And what's up for grabs this round?

First, a House brooch and a pack of 4 Frixion pens.
I made the House brooch a short while ago. It's made of felt, fabric, some batting and it's a house of love. I added a bit of simple embroidery. The Frixion pens are the exact same ones I use when I sew or do embroidery. These are very fine - 05 to be exact. When I use these pens to mark on my fabric, I'm very careful and I don't scribble all over the right side of the fabric. The fact is, it is possible to get ghost lines after you iron on the markings. When I use these pens to draw for embroidery, I make sure I sew over the markings. And because these pens make very fine lines, I have no problem doing that.

Next, an elephant brooch and one yard of FABRIC!
I gave up trying to take a decent photo of the fabric. It's a very pretty fabric.

I made the elephant brooch last month(?) and it is back stitch embroidery on linen.

Both winners will also get a PDF of my latest bag pattern.

I love the fabric and elephant pin. I really enjoy your blog and especially your bag patterns. I must confess I haven't made the cute little boxy bag yet but it's on my 'to do' list. Soon, I hope.

Hi Jane!
I've been reading your blog for years and I actually bought one of your patterns. But, being me, I haven't made any bags yet.
I like the fabric on your giveaway today but I like the house pin more.
I hope you get at least a bit of sunshine soon!

Sweet giveaway - thank you for the chanceS :)

Frixion pens are THE BOMB - I love them! I think I would go for the fabric since I already have half a dozen pens in varying colours - I wish they'd make a silver one that would show up on dark/printed fabrics :D

What happens to a frog's car when it breaks down? It gets toad away :D

Linda said...

How fun, Jane! I would love the elephant brooch and fabric. Of course, the house is adorable, so if I turned out to be a winner and the elephant was gone, I would still be thrilled.

"Housework always comes before sewing....only in the dictionary!"

I love both of your prizes, but my first choice would be the brooch and fabric. I have plans to make an "I Spy" quilt and I could fussy-cut those adorable scenes. Thanks!

Unknown said...

What fun brooches! My favorite would be the frixion pens.

What did Cinderella say to Snow White when dropping off photos to be developed?

Someday my prints will come!

I would love to try the Frixion Pens. They don't sell those in our little town. Besides the House pin is adorable.

I would like the fabric, and little elephant, please! Here's the only joke I can ever remember: What is a duck's favorite food? -- Answer:Quackers. It's so lame that my children laugh and groan at me when I start telling it.

No idea!

Choosing is always so hard... ;-) I love elephants though, so I guess my first choice would be the pretty fabric and elephant button! And in honor of elephants, here's a joke: Why don't elephants like playing cards in the jungle? Because of all the cheetahs! ;-) Hope you have a great day, and thanks so much for the giveaway!
