Look What I Won!!!!

Just recently I've been entering giveaways but never really expected to win, I've never won anything in my life, so when I got an email from Jane saying I'd won her giveaway I thought it was spam LOLLL. I quickly went over to check her blog, projectsbyjane, and there it was I'd won. You have no idea how happy I was, anyone who had seen me would have thought I'd won the lottery.

Be sure to pop over to Jane's blog HERE and also checkout the tutorials HERE, there's a great variety and if you'd like to make a reversible pouch like mine you can buy the pattern HERE amongst other lovely patterns by Jane.

Here's mine, isn't it just the cutest pouch you've seen. It came all the way from Singapore and took just over a month to get to me. Jane and myself thought it had gone traveling for good.

This is the other side of it.

I love the lining fabric.

And it's reversible.

Just look at the cute hand stitching. Not only is it a cute pouch but it's so well made.

This is the bottom which is the same inside and out.

Jane also slipped in a little brooch as a surprise. Look at the hand stitching on this. Gorgeous.

Thank you so much Jane for my lovely prize. At the moment I have it on my shelf in my sewing room where I can see it every day. I'm frightened to use it in case I get it dirty.

  1. Hi Maria,
    I'm really happy you like the pouch and am so relieved it finally arrived. Thanks for the links! Btw, you're a pretty awesome sewer/sewist!!!

  2. Congratulations Maria! What a darling pouch. I like the round shape to it and that bicycle fabric is so fun! The patchwork is a great way to use up odds and ends of fabrics. Wonderful that it reverses too. I like the beads on the ends and I try and put a bead on my drawstring bags too if I have one large enough for the strings to fit through. Plus what a darling brooch too.
    Keep entering giveaways because you never know when you might win. Sometimes it happens in waves where you might win several giveaways and then years go by and nothing, so it doesn't hurt to have a go at it.
    A month to arrive? You were patient! Just sent my son a package to Taiwan and it took 8 days from here. His package arrived faster than some of the things I have ordered for myself from here, lol!

  3. Congrats, Maria. How fun to learn that you have won something. Cute pouch.

  4. Hi Maria~! How exciting to win!!! I can hear you shouting now~ LOL
    It is a very cute bag, and I do love the fabric~ Also love the little pin~ Enjoy!!! hugs~

  5. Congratulations on the win - that's a sweet bag! I love Jane's blog - she's a hoot - she'd be great to have for a neighbour - can you imagine the chats over the fence? LOL!
