Wow!

I said a couple of days ago that when I reached 100 fans on Facebook I’d do a giveaway.  At that point I had 75 fans.  I didn’t really expect to get to 100 quite so quickly, but as I write this I’m up to 175 :D

Thank you to all my new fans!

So let’s get down to this giveaway business…

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to make, and decided on something I haven’t sold before. I spent today making it, and was so eager to show you all I had to take some pictures this evening so please excuse how bad they are!  I’ve used a beautiful upholstery weight fabric, and some of my favourite buttons so I really hope you like it…

Giveaway 002

Looks like a normal buttercup bag right?

It is.

Except this one is BIG!  It’s 14.5 inches at it’s widest point and 9.5 inches tall – you can fit a serious amount of stuff in here!

Giveaway 012

See how desperate I was to show you?  I forgot to rub the chalk lines off before taking pictures ooops!  It has 3 pockets on the inside – one is 3in wide, then there is a pen pocket, followed by a 3.5in one.  Perfect for keeping your phone handy!

Giveaway 007

I’ve decorated it with a mixture of vintage & new buttons, a mixture of white, cream, black, gold, beige & grey.  It also closes with a magnetic snap.

Once again I apologise for the photos, if the weather is nice I’ll take some better ones tomorrow, these really don’t do it justice.

Ok, so how can you win this bag?  It’s easy peasy – just leave me a comment at the end of this post telling me which is your favourite item in my Folksy shop!  That’s it!

www.jentwinkle.folksy.com

This giveaway will run up until 9pm on Monday 20th September when I’ll put all the names in a hat and get my lovely husband to pick out the winning one.

Any questions, please let me know :)

ETA: Forgot to say the giveaway is open to you wherever you are – I’ll happily post the prize internationally :)
