Five Years in Blogland - Giveaway 4

Thank you again for all you lovely comments ... I am thrilled that so many of you like the prizes I am giving away as I celebrate five years in blogland. 

Today's offering is another lovely craft book, Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan. I am also including a Patchwork Pencil Case that I made recently. This pencil case was designed by Shannon Dreval and can be found in the book, Zakka Style.


 I really love the look of linen and cotton fabrics. These pencil cases are quick and easy to make. I used scraps from my dresdens for the patchwork parts. A small rotary cutter also fits in this cute little case.


 Sew Darn Cute includes instructions for 30 projects to sew and embellish. There are bags/totes, bracelets, cushions, table runners, quilts and lots more.
Below is an excerpt from the back cover.


If these prizes appeal to you just leave a comment on this post making sure I can contact you by email if you are the winner. As stated previously, these are random giveaways and will finish at midnight on Friday 4th January. They are open to Australian and overseas readers.
Happy New Year.
