Facebook and Twitter Giveaway!!

In celebration of reaching over 300 likers on Facebook and 700 (wow!) on Twitter I am having a giveaway for some of these:

Some bright and beautiful needle cases.  I have 4 to giveaway!!! 
Just leave a comment below to be in with a chance - please leave your email address as anonymous comments will not be counted!!

I finally bit the bullet and tried printing my own lettering on my printer!! Its fantastic!! I highly recommend trying it!!  
All you do is get some freezer paper (I got mine from ebay)
cut it to the size of an A4 piece of paper.
 Cut a thickish piece of fabric (I used linen) to the same size.
 Iron on the freezer paper to the reverse of the fabric. 
 Use your word processing software to write some words
 put the fabric & freer paper in the printer, freezer paper side UP.
press print - now go and sit by the printer and make sure it feeds through right.
Ta Da!!  
Isn't it great!!  I'm going to be using freezer paper a lot!!

Good luck for the giveaway - closes Sun 29th Jan at 5pm.

  7. Would you believe my 25 year old daughter doesn't own a needle and had to come get one from me to sew her New Years Eve fancy dess costume(no cotton either) This would make a great present for her, so pretty it might even inspire a bit of sewing !!

  9. After being glued to Kirstie's Handmade Home, and then meeting you at a craft fair in Mere Green and purchasing some gorgeous coasters, I have been inspired to start 'crafting' myself! I couldn't even sew on a button before, and now I've made a fabric heart garland for my home :o) These needle cases are fab, I would be so chuffed t win one! I love all that you do, and thanks for the tip, can't wait to give that a go! Well done x (

  11. The needle cases are absolutely gorgeous! Ive only just started sewing again after not doing it since I was a child so it would be great to win one of these little beauties to put my newly bought needles in. Great tip about the printing onto fabric, im off to look for freezer paper now! xx
