April Cargo Duffle Competition

Last week I wrote about the latest bag I had made, yes it was a cargo duffle, designed by Anna at Noodlehead. I also mentioned that I’d be making my second straight away out of this lovely bundle of fabric:

Well today is the 1st of April but this is no April Fools. How would you like to WIN yourself this Cargo Duffle made by my own fair hands?

To be in with a chance of winning this (if I do say so myself) amazing prize (and not because I’m making it no no no, but because it is an excellent bag, I can even fit my lovely little Elna in mine). All you have to do is:

Place an order over £20 between 00:01 1st April 2014 through to Midnight 30th April 2014.

It’s as simple as that. You will receive a raffle prize ticket, so keep it safe and shortly after the end of the month we will make the draw.

You can enter as many times in the month as you like as long as you spend over £20 you will receive a ticket.

Everything is all cut out and I’ve already started on the pockets. I’m just deciding if this yellow thread will set off the turquoise as topstitching around the pockets and flaps? What do you think?

More sneak peaks to come as we go through the month as I progress with the bag.

So what will you be treatimg yourself to this month?

March Stash Club Bundle

I’m a bit late posting this picture of what to expect in your stash club bundles for March! All stash club bundles have now been posted so you should be receiving them very soon!

From the top we have Michael Miller Mirror Ball Dots in Confection, Essex Linen in Hot Pink, Riley Blake Large Chevrons in Hot Pink, Riley Blake Small Gingham in Hot Pink, Kona Cotton in Baby Pink, Kona Cotton in Hot Pink and Kona Cotton in Woodrose.

We had an awful lot of last minute subscribers this month so a couple of the bundles we’ve sent out have had substitution fabrics in as we ran out of yardage. This won’t happen in April though as we’ve ordered extra bolts!

Enjoy your bundles!
