It's a Giveaway....your choice!

Time for another giveaway we say!

I had such fun making the gorgeous Short and Sassy Pleated Bag by artsy-crafty babe that I would love to make you one of your very own.

IMGP1045



However, there is a catch, I couldn't make a decision which fabric to choose?  I procrastinated for at least a few hours this morning while I pottered around tidying the house, should I go for the orange funky with a nice black top and handle or the green stripe and spotty top, maybe a denim one, the black one with the pomegranate design would look great, I love the little white bunnies on the beige, maybe the little Japanese girls, or a beachy pink stripe might be nice too.......oh I just can't decide.

IMGP1040

So it's your choice!  Leave a comment and let me know which one you would choose.  If you're the lucky winner I will custom make you a short and sassy of your very own.  If none of these fabrics appeal just tell me what your choice of colours would be and I'll go with that!  Now that's pretty simple isn't it!  I'll also throw in a few surprises for the lucky winner, it'll be just like Christmas, hang on, it nearly is Christmas!

Mention our giveaway with a link on your Blog and we'll add an extra entry for you in the draw.

We'll draw the winner Sunday lunchtime the 9th Nov, so go on, don't be shy, you've got to be in it to win it!

That is a great bag pattern Kylie. What lovely fabric choices!! Love the linen fabric with the green flowers.

Lolkate said...

You two girls are so clever.Beautiful fabrics! I love the chevron stripes. Now Kylie - have you read THE books? The Diana Gabaldon ones?

smileykylie said...

Hi lolkate, I sure have! a few times over! ask Janelle who told her all about them :) Good luck with the giveaway.

Margy said...

Cute bag! I would choose the black and white fabric with a plain top / handle as per the pattern.

Thanks for the opportunity - I do live in the UK though so if distance of posting is a factor, I will understand.

smileykylie said...

Hi Margy, yes international entries are most welcome, good luck :)Kylie

Kellie Servaas said...

Hey Kylie

Great design, you are very clever with all your lovely work - I wish I had the time to have a go too! For your competition, I like the spotty dark/blue black fabric (front of the photo) and I think denim or black top and handles. I love handbags...

Bloom said...

Hi Kylie! The enticement of having someone make me something gorgeous is just too strong to resist! The combo that jumps out at me is the lovely Lara Cameron 'Gingko' print with the green spot at the top. How demanding I feel!! You are very generous to offer such a giveaway & it will be fun reading through everyone's preferences. Best wishes, Ros.

Renate said...

That's such a pretty pattern!!! I like the green striped fabric (bottom right) with a coordinating top - maybe a darker green or one of the other stripe colors.

Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely bag!

RebeccaMom said...

Tought choices, but I guess I'd have to pick the orange bird fabric with a denim top! I'll be linking you on my blog for that extra entry. You guys are great!

Skinsations Soap said...

I like the pink stripe myself. Lovely choices. You are very talented!

Dee said...

OOOOHhhh Please please please pick the green stripe and spotty top. But seriously, I think they will all look gorgeous. Love them all and I just loved those bags. This is an exciting giveaway indeed. Kind regards, D. :=)

crftyscrapper said...

Beautiful bag! I bet the one you made is just gorgeous. I like the top left ginko leaves with the bottom right stripes.

Carole said...

I think I would need to go with the green stripy fabric that has a big of orange in it. But I also love that orange fabric. I love all the fabrics actually.

And I mentioned you in my blog!
