Mini-Giveaway Winner and Feature Friday

Thank you to all 30 people who read yesterday’s post all the way through and commented to test my new commenting facilities! I’m still tweaking it, but it looks like it’s doing a fairly good job – only a couple of people got erroneously sent to the ‘spam’ folder.

The winner was Debbe from Pieces to Love, and I’ve sent her an email already. I really love my free WordPress plug-in that allows me to decide which posts are contests and how many random winners I want. At the touch of a button it does all the random work for me.

And you’ll be wanting to come back next week because the Follower Giveaway will start – I have decided to include genuine Cadbury’s chocolate and fabric in this one as those are my two favourite things.

So here are the week’s features:

Lindsey from Craft Buds shared how to sew reusable sandwich bags which look quite useful.

Karen from Sew Much 2 Luv shared a tutorial for these little zipper pouches that look like they’d make brilliant pencil cases. (Is the UK the only country that requires school kids to have pencil cases? We go through at least 2 per year.)

Felicity of Felicity Quilts made this Helen Keller quote quilt as part of the Kona Solids challenge – isn’t is lovely?!

My lovely blog friend Bonnie of Wonderfully Awkward wrote a tutorial for this wristlet with a secret zipper pocket.

And you guys have to check out Zombie Leah’s tutorial for painting with yarn – it would be a brilliant activity to do with your kids!

Suburbs Mama shared a tutorial for this easy elasticated waist knit skirt that takes way less than an hour to sew!

Well, that’s all the time I have! Gotta go write tutorials now,
