sew mama sew giveaway day

on a purse tip

I almost forgot about sew mama sew giveaway day! Phew - luckily I'm not too late.
So - here's the good stuff....

One winner will win a custom made framed purse, like the ones in the pic up there but in your choice of fabric (from a selection, of whatever I have in my stash - I'm pretty sure I'll have something to keep any single person happy...I'm a little bit of a fabric whore, it has been said). They're nice and roomy and can fit all sorts in. I have my make up in mine, and even the brushes fit. Deceptively spacious little things, those purses.

The giveaway is open until this Friday (Dec 16th) 5pm PST (which is about midnight or 1am the next day or something for those of us living in the UK), so let's say until Saturday morning when I wake up, yes?

I told you there'd be another giveaway soon. Bet you didn't think it'd be this soon, did you? (No, neither did I).

QUICK EDIT - open to anyone and everyone, where ever you may be!

Look - here's me busy making purses.....

Busy busy busy

I've been wanting a clasp frame purse like this and just haven't gotten around to ordering frames and making any yet! Is this open to international visitors? If so can I pretty please have one like the one you're working on in that picture? Please? With a cherry on top?
