A fun milestone and a Liberty giveaway! (NOW CLOSED)

****GIVEAWAY UPDATE!****

Congratulations to Geni M who wins the measuring tape and ChriChri who wins the buttons and bias tape!  ChriChri, please leave a note in the comments so I know how to contact you.

I’d use the tape on a jean jacket and place buttons on a bag I’m making and use the measuring tape to measure rtw garments to get the perfect fit on my jean jacket. How’s that? Thanks 😉

Congrats on your cashmerette followers 🙂 I’m actually surprised that you don’t have more…I follow several hundred blogs but always look forward to your posts 🙂 I love using bias binding to finish necklines and that gorgeous liberty print would look lovely on the neckline of a “crepe” colette dress I have planned.

*************************

I just hit 100 followers on Bloglovin’! Yay! This pretty much confirms that it’s not just my Mum who reads my blog, unless she has carefully created multiple identifies just to follow me. But I must say, I don’t even think my Mum could create Oonaballoona so I’m going to trust the numbers.

Anyhoosles, in celebration of this, I’m going to do a little giveaway! I bought a few things from Liberty, so if you’d like one of them……

1. Leave a comment below, telling me what you’ll make/do with it
2. Follow me on Bloglovin (please make sure you do this – you need to be following me to be eligible!)
3. Make sure I have a way to reach you!

I’ll select two responses at random (one for each prize) on Friday March 21st.

The giveaways are…

A coordinating set of Liberty bias tape and buttons.

A Liberty fabric-covered measuring tape, useful for all your portable measuring needs!

Given I only have a 100 followers you have a good chance of winning 😀

    Hello from Massachusetts! Thanks for the generous offer – and the tour of Liberty you posted earlier in the week. So much inspiration! I think I’d keep it simple with something like a Sorbetto so I could feature the lovely Liberty accents!

    I’m not your mother dear, honestly not, but I certainly enjoy reading your blog!

    Hey congrats! It’s so fun to get those little emails that one has a new follower, and see who they are and what other fab blogs they are into – one of the best things about having a blog I think! I love that bias tape! Not sure what I’d make with it but it’d slide into my stash very easily!

    Woo hoo!

    Those buttons are sooo cute! I’ve got Sew Over It’s 1940’s tea dress pattern that calls for three buttons just like those!

    Wow! The fabrics on the buttons and bias tape is gorgeous! I see a new purse in my future… 🙂 lol

    I love following your blog! Congratulations. I am a huge Liberty fan.I would put the buttons on vest I am making and finish the seams with the seam binding.

    I’m so glad I discovered your blog! I love your style, and you make such beautiful things 🙂

    And what a generous giveaway! If I were the lucky one to be drawn, I’d go for the measuring tape. One can never have enough of those around, and this is the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen!

    hahahaha!! that’s hilarious!!!

    i must remove my name from the giveaway hat, as i’ve been spoiled lately and MY mum would shake a finger at me (actually she wouldn’t at all, she is very much 100% brat and i am my mother’s daughter, but still). your blog is awesome, girl!

    Wow – if I won I would love either prize, but those buttons and bias tape are fantastic! I would totally use it for a cute top – buttons on the yoke and bias tape on the sleeve edges at least 🙂 Congrats on the 100 and thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Nique Etienne March 16, 2014 at 12:20 pm #

    Congrats! I would make a basic top so those lovely can stand out

    Pretty sure I’m not your mum (unless you are 5 and faking your pics – you’re not are you?). I follow you on bloglovin. Lovely giveaway.

    What a great give away. The tape measure would live in my knitting bag and be used all the time. The bias tape and buttons would make an amazing tee with binding and button accent. So nice.

    Congrats! You keep giving away liberty swag and you’ll have 100 more in no time.I would use that bias tape to hem some shorts. As for the measuring tape why I would measure. Waists, hips, busts, no one would be safe.

    I just started following you last week (not because of this giveaway even) and am glad I did. I’m actually following you on The Old Reader, if that doesn’t count for the giveaway that’s cool, I just know that’s how I will actually catch your blog. Which is fabulous by the way.

Let me know what you think!
