Pattern Giveaway!

Yippee, it's giveaway time again! Today's giveaway is very kindly sponsored by my bloggy friend Kat, who has a fab blog Mumma's Time to Create which you should definitely go and have a little look around. Kat makes all kinds of beautiful things, and besides blogging about them, she also has a shop, where she sells handmade items, including some amazingly pretty toddler dresses. Check out her shop to see more - you won't be sorry! She has recently launched another arm of her business “Flutter from.Kat” to now include some sewing patterns, and is giving away her first two patterns here today. You should definitely keep an eye on her shop as she will be adding more patterns in the coming weeks.

I made this lovely zippy pouch before Christmas from the above pattern and found it super easy to follow. I was really happy with how it turned out and it was very well received by my friend!




This is a pattern I will definitely be using again :-)

I also can't wait to try the other pattern I am giving away today - for this insanely cute patchwork purse.

Isn't it gorgeous?

So, you want to win a copy of these patterns, right? The winner will get both patterns! I'm giving you 3 chances to enter :-)

1. Leave a comment telling me what fabrics/colours you would use to make up the zippy pouch.
2. Pop over to Kat's blog and follow using GFC or Reader, and leave me a comment to tell me (or tell me if you already follow her).
3. Like Flutter from.Kat's Facebook page

You don't have to be a follower of mine to enter, but, of course I would love it if you did and I think that I will have plenty to keep you interested here over the next few months ;-)

And it goes without saying that if you are not lucky enough to win, you can always pop over and buy a copy of the patterns, which at $5 AUS won't break the bank! Just click on the pics above to bring you to Kat's site.

I will leave the giveaway open until Sunday evening 9pm (Irish time). Please make sure you leave your email address in your comment in the following format fairyfacedesigns (at) gmail (dot) com.
If I cannot get in touch with the winner, I will redraw. PDF patterns will be emailed to the winner following the draw. Everyone is welcome to enter!

I'd use my green scraps... I somehow have more green than any other color, even though I never seem to have large pieces of green when I need it!

Kasey said...

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Ok following you both (no 234 or was it 243 one of the two!) on Kats website also liked on facebook. Then as to material I would use the Kate Spain Terrain fat quarter fabric that I ordered for a certain zippy challenge we are both partaking in :) I think it is great that she is using something she enjoys doing to make some pennies.

I'm loving gray and aqua right now so something with those colors. I have my eye on the Modern Whimsy park circle print so maybe that plus Kona Charcoal? I have a zipper pouch on the top of my list. I need to conquer my fear of zippers!

Love the patterns. Will make them up with the new linen I just bought.

Jodi said...

What a cute zipper pouch. I just saw a zipper pouch made up with Valentines fabric and it was so cute. I think I'd check my stash and either use some heart fabric or some bright and colorful fabric.

Thank you for your giveaway and a chance to win. I'm a follower as well.

Just signed up to follow Kat's blog thanks for the introduction. Would have to go scrappy on the purses, which would mean lots of blues and aquas with maybe a hint of red, as that is what my scrap bag seems to be full of at the minute

I have some blue & yellow scraps in my stash that I would use. I have plans to make a purse out of a pair of jeans with these scraps also, so it would be a matching set(if I won the pattern).
