Cyber Monday Giveaway! – CLOSED

**Giveaway now closed. Thanks for participating!**

Two lucky readers will win one of these awesome bundles! Yes, TWO of you!

Bundle One consists of Retro Butterick Pattern B5281 in sizes E5 (14-22), two packs of cool buttons, and a handbag handmade by me! The bag is made of 100% cotton backed with some medium-heavy weight interfacing. It has two inside pockets and a ring to clip your keys. The handles are black painted bamboo.

Bundle Two consists of Simplicity Pattern 2444Β in sizes E5 (14-22), two packs of cool buttons, and a handbag handmade by me! The bag is made of 100% cotton backed with some medium-heavy weight interfacing. It has two inside pockets and a ring to clip your keys. The handles are bamboo.


To Enter:

1. Sign up for my newsletter AND/OR follow me on at least one social media platform. Please pick a new platform if you’re already following me somewhere.
(newsletter sign up found in my side bar at the top right, social media stuff in my top navigation. Instagram counts too!)

2. Leave one comment with your first name, which bundle you’re hoping to win, and where you’re following me!

3. You must leave your comment before midnight on Friday November 30th EST.

TWO Β winners will be announced here on Saturday the 1st. In the event that both winners pick the same bundle, the winner who is drawn first will win the bundle of their choice. Winners will be chosen via random number generator.

FINE PRINT: One comment allowed per person for one chance to win. This giveaway is extended worldwide. Shipping will be via USPS economy class. (Keep in mind it may take several weeks for shipping outside of the US.) You must use a valid email address when leaving a comment. I will be contacting the winners for your shipping information (and confirm the newsletter sign up/social media follows) via the email address you used when leaving a comment, so please make sure it’s one you check often! If the winner does not provide their shipping information by Monday the 3rd, I will draw a new winner. Social media platforms include: Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, Bloglovin’, or Google Reader. I say AND/OR because not everyone has social media, and not everyone likes newsletters. (My newsletters are a monthly thing and are non-spammy.) Please don’t follow me just for a chance to win, and then unfollow me. That’s pretty lame. I want to reward my faithful readers!! Not give free stuff to people who just want free stuff.

Good Luck!!

And for my readers who don’t sew, I will be having future giveaways that do not include sewing notions πŸ™‚
