Giveaway - Hazel and Blue Purse and beautiful ribbon

I have been sorting out my sewing boxes and bowls of ribbons and in so doing, I have realised that I have quite a lot of beautiful ribbons in stock. Ribbons are so versatile and can be used in so many different ways. For example here are five quick ideas:

1. Sewing projects
2. Bunting
3. Card making
4. Wrapping presents
5. Hair bow ties

I have also had some lovely comments about my little hand sewn pretty coin purses I make.
So I have had a brain wave and decided to have my first ever Giveaway! To thank all my readers, new and loyal for their loveliness. Up for grabs is a pretty Handmade purse made by me, made with Amy Butler material and pretty pink gingham inside. As well as (hold your breath) 1 metre of any spool of  ribbon you see in the photo below. Yes any one you like. You can choose : Pink, red, striped, dotty, satin or grosgrain.

The pretty coin purses are really useful, I have one and my little girl has one which she puts her pretty hair clips in, or they would make a great little gift. I will be offering  free postage and packaging to all entrants.
and I will send anywhere in the world (New Zealand included!).

If you would like to enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on my blog, telling me what you would do with your ribbon.

Please feel free to share with other fellow blog people or Tweeters!

Closing date will be Sunday 30th January at 12 noon GMT.

I will pick a entry from one of the comments given (most likely be out of a hat with Little girl and Older boy helping!) Please check back here, after this date to see if you have won. Once the winner sends me their address ( and choice of ribbon) I will post the next available day and the winner can enjoy them!


Congratulations to Sew Scumptious! You are the winner of the Hazel and Blue giveaway! Please let me know which ribbon you would like? and let me know your address.

  2. Hi Becky,
    What a lovely giveaway... I'm sure I would be able to find many uses for such lovely ribbon - most probably adorning handmade cushions or pretty hanging decorations like those in your header picture!

    I think the heart cushions in your blog topper are cute also and like Jenny I would probably make some for my room

  4. I'd like to enter please! I'd love the little purse and I'd make some hair clip tidies with the ribbon. Lovely giveaway. I'll RT your tweet on twitter.

  5. Hi! Had to pop over to see your giveaway, glad I did!! The coin purse is beautiful!
    I would love pink dotty ribbon and would use it to add "tags" to handbags when I get my sewing mojo back :) My little girl would also steal some for her own little projects no doubt!

  6. Hi Becky,
    Thanks for your comment on the charity post. Your charity sounds great too. Let me know how you get on and I will blog about it! x

  7. I've always wanted to make a notice board with ribbon over it. So would use it for that. and no doubt some leftovers would make it to my little girlies pig tails at some point ;)

  8. Thanks every one for entering the Hazel and Blue giveaway, your comments are lovely! (Widge: I also have been thinking about making a notice board too. I have an old cork board and some fabric ready and I think this will be my next project!). Bx

  9. Hello fellow Kiwi! What a lovely purse, just gorgeous. I would love the rainbow stripe ribbon and would use it as edging and ties on the girls aprons that I am making out of calico with their names on in different fabrics for each letter. Shhh, it's their birthday pressies & a secret until late March.

  10. The purse is lovely, The ribbons even more so. I would use one to tie up my daughters' pigtails.

  11. What a lovely giveaway! The purse is very cute and would have a number of uses and the ribbon is gorgeous, I love ribbon! My favourite is the red and White spotty one which I'd use as part of a quilt project I'm planning. Thank you for the chance :)

  12. Oh wow...I would love to win this, I ♥ ribbon! And the little purse looks gorgeous!

    I would definitely use the ribbon in some of my new little pieces of textile art! : )

    So glad I caught this giveaway before it finished!
