~*NOW CLOSED* ~Sew Grateful - Lets start with a giveaway!

Are you excited?

 Its time for Sew Grateful Week.

If you haven’t come across it before, the idea is over the week we show how grateful we are for the online sewing community.

 But I was scratching my head, wondering what to giveaway. I don't have a massive stash of anything, and lets face it- if I want to give them away, why would you want to receive them?! But I am grateful for the sewing community, so I'm giving away something I don't really want to give away. Remember I said I had some fabric left from the Pin-Up Aprons?


It could be yours. 

As far as I know its not available in Australia, so here is your chance to grab a little bit of tacky goodness!
You know you want it. Maybe a kinky lining for a bag or jacket, or wear it loud and proud on the outside.
There is just over half a meter up for grabs.

Also up for grabs are two lovely 1970s patterns-

All you need to do is be following the blog and leave a comment. 
Let me know that you've spread the word for an extra entry!
Closes midnight sunday (West Australian time).
Open to all. Make sure there is a way I can get in touch with you- either through your blog or leave an email address.
