I've just posted my first tutorial for the laminated lunch bag I made for the Japanese Scrap Challenge, I hope it inspires at least one person to make one, it will have made all that typing and editing worthwhile! You can find the tutorial here.
I also have my very first giveaway to celebrate that exactly 1 year ago today I took Strawberry Patch out to its very first craft fair! I cant believe how much has changed in a year - my sewing skills, my confidence, my profits. Ive started a blog, started giving workshops and generally been having an amazing year!
Huge thanks to all my friends and family that have supported and encouraged me along the way, as way of thanks I am running a giveaway for my followers. How would you like to get your hands on 3 fat quarters of Swoon by Melissa Averinos for Andover Fabrics? I have been using this line in the Across the Sea QAL and I love it.
To enter here is what you need to do:
1. Be a follower and leave me a comment saying you are.
2. Head over to my facebook page here and 'like' Strawberry Patch and tell me you have done so in another comment for an extra entry
3. For a billy bonus third entry leave another comment recommending a blog to me that you love, any subject matter!
4. Join in our Modern Christmas Fabric Charm Swap - sorry, only kidding!! But seriously if you want to join us in some swapsies fun and get some fab festive fabric to boot just head over here.
edited to add - you can indeedy have a 4th entry, just blog about this giveaway and leave me the link in a seperate comment!
So that's a whopping
3 4 entry's (if you can be bothered!) and I will close the giveaway on Friday 30th September at 12 midday GMT when the lucky winner will be picked by Mr Random Number Generator.
