Blogiversary Backstitch Giveaway!


That’s right, one year ago today I started blogging!

It’s gone soooo quickly. I started so I could post about my participation in Me-Made-May. I barely had anything to wear and I was still figuring out how to manage a blog. I was  pretty sure no one out there was reading.

But here I am, a year later with a lovely wardrobe full of me-made clothes and I’ve met amazing interesting lovely people (in real life and virtually) all through the blog.
So to show my appreciation I’m hosting a giveaway.

Up for grabs is a £15 gift voucher to the Backstitch shop!


Choose from the fantastic fabrics available, including Riley Blake, Lizzy House and Liberty Lifestyle.

Or spoil yourself with a pattern from one of the wildly popular indie pattern companies, such as Sewaholic, Victory Patterns or Megan Nielsen.

All you have to do to win is be a follower of the blog and simply leave a comment telling me how you follow. That’s it!

New followers are welcome to enter. The giveaway is open internationally too.

Closing date for entries in Friday 10th May at Midnight (BST).

I’ll draw an entry at random and announce the winner shortly after.

Good luck!
