Sew Darn Cute...

Edited to add: thanks for all the entries, the winner is Julia!

I love sewing books, so I was pretty excited when a new one arrived in my mailbox recently.


Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan is full of lots of lovely sewing patterns, my favorites being the appliqué glasses cosy & the simple cot sized quilt.


There are lots of great (& quick) gift ideas & plenty of eye candy too.


Given that I currently have a bookcase bursting with sewing books I though that this one deserved to go to a good home so it's giveaway time! If you would like Sew Darn Cute to land on your doorstep simply leave a comment on this post & I will draw a winner On Tuesday 9th of March. If you want some more sewing inspiration, check our Jenny's blog.

Oooh, too generous! My bookcase has had a thrashing- lots gotten rid of, so this one needs to come live with me. I'd do it justice!

Yes! I need inspiration! Desperately! I have had a few month with just studying for some exams (that are still not over completely) and now I feel like my brain simply cannot handle anything anymore let alone come up with anything that I want to sew.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Why do I think that you could start up the pigeon pair craft library and never be short of a book - not that there is anything wrong with that

Lisa said...

Man they are some cute projects! Looks lovely.

Julia said...

As I'm reading you're post I'm thinking...now that looks like a good book to get. And then you go and offer to give it away. You're so generous :)

Fran said...

What a generous giveaway! I've got a number of craft books, but there's always room for one more I say - especially one so yummy!!

Katyha said...

Oh I would love to win this book. I'm crossing my fingers.

beasplace said...

Oh yes please!! And I don't even want to win it for me, I'd gift it to the middle child who is right into craftiness at the mo. Also, she could do with a buck up, seems being a teenager isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Thanks for the competition.
