*** giveaway ***



My impatience at getting some purses made up, coupled with my sometimes cavalier approach to measuring has resulted in a beautiful purse, which I've freehand machine embroidered with a flying gul, but embellished with a slightly wonky ribbon

I realised before I started assembling this that it was wrong, but carried on regardless, somehow thinking that the wonkiness would be lost it if I added some buttons on the other side to balance it out. So I've learnt the hard way that measuring and pinning is a must (which surely I should have known by now anyway!)


I wouldn't feel comfortable selling this, but it's still too good to throw away so I thought I'd host my first giveaway!


If you can live with the wonky ribbon, but otherwise perfect purse and would like to be entered into the draw then please leave a comment below. You will get an extra entry for each of these; following my blog, following me on twitter, following me on facebook, or following me on folksy (please let me know when you leave comment.) Entries will close on 23rd October.

On a different note I've just added this (non-wonky) purse to my shop...
