Once upon a time, I made a spur of the moment decision to record a video about vintage sewing patterns and upload it to YouTube. I’d only just discovered the YouTube sewing community the day before and I’d spent the better part of a day watching video after video and subscribing to every sewing vlogger I could find. It felt like a fun community and I felt as though I’d like to join it.
I had no idea I’d be sitting here a year later, still uploading those videos, with over 1,200 people subscribed to my channel. It’s still a little surreal, to be honest!
It’s high time I gave something back to say thank-you to everyone who has jumped on board. Read on to find out what I’m giving away and how you can enter!
A Handmade Giveaway
At first, I thought I might like to offer a prize of a pdf pattern or fabric… Then Tim suggested I give away some of my calendars and I knew immediately that was exactly it: I wanted to give you something I’ve made.
The first part of the prize is one of my 2018 calendars. These are smaller than the ones I gave my family for Christmas because I think they’re slightly better quality. I love the size of the giant ones but the paper they’re printed on isn’t as thick and they’re a little droopy. Who wants a droopy calendar? No-one, that’s who; so I’ve had these ones printed instead.
The calendars feature photos I took during 2017 and they are all labelled so you’ll know precisely what you’re looking at.
But Wait – There’s More!
If you happen to win the draw, you’ll also receive a handmade project bag.
I love these bags! They might look small but they hold a surprising amount of stuff. I use mine primarily for my knitting and I’ve frequently had the front or back of a jumper snuggled inside one of these bags.
You even have a choice of fabric!
The eucalyptus print is an early favourite on YouTube so far! You can also opt for the crazy cat print or the moustaches, if you prefer. The bag will be lined with a navy and white stripe.
