Bits n Bobs - Birthday Giveaway (Part 2)

Well as you may already know, my birthday is fast approaching. Wednesday is the day I am another year older - so I’m celebrating by holding a few giveaways here on my blog over the week.
I hope you have all entered my ”Friendship” Charm Pack Giveaway. If you haven’t entered yet, pop on over and enter. You never know your luck, right?
Todays giveaway, I have decided to call the “Bits n Bobs Giveaway”.
4 x F8th’s of bits n bobs you use while sewing. Well, 3 are sewing bits and the other is a gorgeous spotty fabric which goes so well, that I had to include it.

Bits n Bobs Giveaway 1

Plus, as I’ve now begun to add a few extra bits 'n bobs in my Store, I thought I’d include a Finger Presser and a pack of Hand Quilting needles in the bundle.

Bits n Bobs 2

Oh wow, isn’t that spotty fabric gorgeous? So bright, happy and completely delicious.

  14. I would love to have one of these nearby when I sew - http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2011/12/in-case-of-emergency-.html
    SO I think it would be appropriate to make it with sewing fabrics. What was left I would use to make a sewing accessories set - pin cushion, scissor holder/keep and thread catcher. And I would use the dotty fabric to tie it all together.
    What a great giveaway.
