Pattern Giveaway !

Here I am with another giveaway , this time it is one of my patterns .
If the Sewing Machine Apron looks a little familiar it's because it was a special commission for Handmade Magazine and was published last year . Some overseas visitors may not have seen it so this is a great opportunity for you to win a copy .
 I had so many requests for it to become a stand alone pattern and now I've finally gotten my act together and done it !
I can't live without my Sewing Machine Apron as I sew as it is short enough that it doesn't get in the way of the fabric going in the machine and the pockets aren't too deep so I can't lose things like clippers in the bottom of them .
Would you like to win a copy ? Please leave a comment and please make sure you can be contacted .
Giveaway is open to all as a little thankyou for putting up with me !


After the giveaway I will have copies of the pattern in my shop and in my Ebay shop .

Sarah Craig said...

Such a great idea! My granddaughter is constantly trying to take my pin box (it makes a great shaker/noisemaker) or my scissors from beside my sewing machine - this might cure that problem, or I might start finding odd things in the pockets! And thanks for posting a comment on my blog - it's always nice to see new people on there! I'll be following your blog now - looks like you do lots of neat things!

Oh yes indeed I would love to win this beautiful pattern...I could so do with that little pocket under my sewing machine and I do believe I might have some fabric I could use somewhere in the cupboard full I own...if not in the cupboard, I am sure there is some in the crates or the suitcase I could use...surely...
yes indeed it would be very handy.

WHAT A WONDERFUL IDEA, I ALWAYS HAVE A CLOTH BETWEEN MY SEWING MACHINE AND THE TABLE. THIS WOULD BE VERY HANDY IF I AM USING MORE THAN ONE BOBBIN. IF I LEAVE IT BESIDES THE MACHINE THE CAT THINKS ITS HIS.
PLEASE COUNT ME IN.

Jules said...

Hello Clare,
Just dropping a line to back you up on just how handy the machine skirt really is. Of course I made one up using your pattern from the magazine and find it very handy. I am buying a sewing machine for my little one's birthday and have this pattern in mind for her to sew up one for herself. If you happen to draw out my name I would like you to redraw please as I have the magazine. Hoepefully an overseas person will win it.
