Blog giveaway: a bag in your choice of fabric

Celebrating 100 posts

I still think of myself as a blogging newby but having now hit the "publish post" button 100 times I guess that I need to consider myself climbing the ladder of blogging experience rather than standing at the bottom looking up with my mouth hanging open.

So I have worked out that it seems to be the done thing to give away something when you have posted a nice round figure- in this case 100 posts. I can't believe that I have posted that many times- and I even more can't believe that some of you loyal people have hung around to read my blogging blurb. A huge thank you to those who have! It is good for the soul to think that someone wants to hear what I say and do.

So in the spirit of blogland, I am offering to sew up a bag in your choice of fabrics as chosen from the selection below. I don't know what bag it will be yet but there has to be some element of surprise, hey?

So rules of engagement:
1 There are no rules.

All you need to do is post a comment nominating your fabric choice. One entry per person. Will post anywhere. Please leave means of contacting you if you don't have a blog.

You don't need to blog about the giveaway (though if you chose to, I'm not going to complain or apply for a restraining order) and you don't have to follow my blog (I think that it is cruel and unusual punishment to make people sign up to my blog if they don't actually want to)

So I hope that you find something to your liking. I will close this competition in oh, about a week and I will pick a winner through either a highly technical method involving a computer progam or a less technical method involving a 2 year old, box and pieces of paper.

1. Pretty pink.

2. Bold blue.

3. Bohemian brown

4. Pretty palette

5. Gorgeous garden

6. Rich Red

Good luck!

Congratulations on the 100 posts. No surprise here ;)That's 100 posts of interesting and funny thoughts, pretty pics and yummy recipes. Having met you in person, I would say you major in communication and I an not at all surprised that the universe has served up mouther as the verification word lol
I like combos 1, 2 and 5. It would take until the end of the comp to choose I am sure!

Tanya said...

Hi Tas, great prize, umm, brown or red or that blue is pretty great too. I wonder if you require deciveness-I am with Harooney! But really- that owl fabric is unreal

All your fabric combos are gorgeous and I was going to pick the blues until I saw the owl fabric in the rich red. I'm a sucker for owls so that is the one I'd choose.

And do you really need to ask which one I'd pick if I was so lucky to win...the pinks of course!


Liz B. said...

All of those color combinations are SO darling...I can't decide...oh...I think the bold blue is most like me :) Thanks so much for the chance at your giveaway!

I looove the bohemian brown!!

angelique said...

You have given me way tooooo many choices there. I really like the bold blue or the garden one with the big flowers. If I am lucky enough to win I think I might have to get you to make the final decision.

P.s i am now following you because I want to.

p.p.s you little parcel is slowly coming together and I should have it posted very soon.

Ellie said...

Awesome giveaway and I truly can not decide which colour I would choose if I was lucky enough to win.

Ummmm oh gosh I am tossing up between bold blue and the pastel one. Oh the angst ;-p

sewfunky said...

bohemian brown! But I like the red selection too! :)

I've got a giveaway on my blog, go check it out!

Birgit said...

Hi there,

First of all, a BIG thanks for the chance to win such a lovely bag. :)

At first I wanted to say bohemian brown, but then I saw the owls in rich red, so I guess the right choice is rich red after all. Who could possibly resists owls?! ;)

Greetings from Munich,

Snowdrops and Mudpie said...

Congratulations on getting to 100 posts Tas :) And to think you weren't going to start a blog at all LOL (or get an Otto subscription either!!).

If I'm lucky enough to win you can surprise me cause I like all the fabric combos you have on offer :)

mummy_chelle said...

Well done for making it to 100 posts! I have only just discovered your blog but will definitely be back.

If I am lucky enough to win I think I would like to step out of my comfort zone and have a bag made out of the red fabric combo. Or a close second would be the (very much more me) pretty pink one.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

Grace Wong said...

pretty pink is definitely my favorite combo!


willywagtail said...

What a treasure trove of choices. Almost too hard to pick. Maybe the pink one. Cherrie

Nadine said...

Such a generous giveaway, I love handbags :) Hmm the pink is very pretty!!

Amy Paul said...

100 is great! I'll get there one day! P.S. love the post "note to self"!

Krissy said...

I am in love with the pink combo!

Plus I know your bags rock !!

a little original said...

Oh wow, all those combos are stunning! It was really hard to decide on one... but I'm going with Bohemian brown. A bag out of any of he combos would be divine- you can't go wrong!
