Five Years in Blogland - Giveaway 5

Did you think I'd forgotten no 5? Yesterday I took a break from posting and added the finishing touches to the  final giveaway? It is Gem's Dilly Bag, designed by Marg Low and made by me.


 
 I used some of my precious Ruby stash to make this cute little design.


 
The felt flower was fun to stitch and goes together very quickly.



To compliment the green scallop print on the outside, I used one of the larger floral prints with a green background for the lining.
 

 
I really hope you like my Gem's Dilly Bag ... it's going to be hard to part with! To register for this last giveaway,  just leave a comment on this post making sure I can contact you by email if you are the winner. This is a random giveaway and will finish at midnight on Friday 4th January. It is open to Australian and overseas readers.
 
Thanks to everyone who has entered any or all of my 'Five Years in Blogland' giveaways. I have had so much fun reading all your comments and checking out all the new to me blogs. Bye for now.
