My 1st Giveaway - Finally!

As part of Sew, Mama, Sew!'s May Giveaway Day and as a gift for my loyal followers I'll be giving away this lovely pocket clutch.




   I made it using a Keyka Lou pattern. The outside is made with a lovely Michael Miller print, the inside is orange solid cotton,  the flap is made with faux leather and it closes with a pearlized button. It is very pretty in real life, even if I say so myself.

   So what do you need to do to win? It's easy! Just write a brief comment on this post telling me a bit about yourself. What you disclose is up to you; anything goes. I'd like to know more about my readers.


The winner of this giveaway will be chosen using the True Random Number Generator from RANDOM.ORG.


The Fine Print:

  • International readers are welcome. I will ship anywhere.
  • I need to be able to contact the winner, so be sure that your email or other contact information is available through your profile/blog/shop.
  • The giveaway will remain open until May 25.
  • I will announce the winner on May 26.
  • I will ship the clutch no later than May 30.
