Sewing Calendar and magazine giveaway


I got two of these lovely calendars on Tuesday because I have contributed a tutorial for a small wallet. If you haven't seen them before they are really great. Every three days you turn over to a new sewing project. Usually easy, fun and quick these projects come with full instructions, pictures and a pattern where needed. You can buy one here or you can win one by leaving a photo on the flickr group pool. I will draw one winner from there on Monday 9th August.

Remember the magazine giveaway I announced on 21st July? Well 2 things have happened: one I was sent another magazine, and two Ady (the winner) hasn't been in touch. Therefore I now have two magazines to give away. These are both Issue 18 of Sewhip. If you would like to win one of these just leave a comment. I will be drawing these winners on 9th August also.
I made this colourful back pack for issue 20 of Sewhip. It has a zippered pocket on the front and a zippered closing around the top of the bag. I used timtex to give it shape. I'm currently working on the Christmas issue.
