Halloween Treats...It's Giveaway Time!

It's my birthday tomorrow...yep, I'm a Halloween baby. Thank goodness my parents didn't call me Pumpkin (it's so much easier with names if you're born at Christmas)!

I'm having a bit of a do to celebrate - hoorah for birthdays! I'm so excited about wearing these shoes (bought from Donna as her last Open House Sale). Can you guess what the theme of the party is?

As if having a birthday wasn't excitement enough, these fabulous new Amy Butler patterns dropped on to our doormat the other day!

The "Liverpool" (inspired by Amy's trips to our little island) can be a shirt, tunic, short or long dress...there are 4 hem lengths, 4 sleeve lengths and a belt, all in this one pattern. I love the design of this one - perfect for autumn.

The Sweet Harmony handbag and tote looks like a great design for fitting all of life's little essentials in. There are lots of pockets, which is great for someone like me, who can never find a thing in her handbag and ends up tipping everything on the floor to get to things!

The instructions in Amy's patterns are always really good and if the end results on the pattern packets are anything to go by, these designs are well worth spending time at the sewing machine to create.

The fabric on the front of these patterns are from Amy's new range, called LOVE...can't wait to see it up close. I'm such a fan of Amy's fabrics. I buy them and then can't bring myself to cut into them...I must be brave one day!

The lovely people at Amy Butler Design have sent me some extra patterns so....(drum roll please)'s time for a giveaway! Hooray!

So, if you'd like to be entered into the giveaway, all you need to do is leave me a comment. Easy as that!

I'm going to pick two for the "Liverpool" and Birdie Sling patterns and the other for the Sweet Harmony handbag and tote and the Stash and Dash bags patterns. Just leave a comment by 9th November!

Happy Halloween!

Amy Butler's patterns are great - I have the Stash and Dash bag one, but not the others, so would love to win such a fantastic giveaway! Thank you for being so generous.

Happy happy birthday!

the tunic/shirt looks lovely - it would be fun to make that one i think.

I saved some adored Amy Butler fabric for years before finally turning it into a quilt when I had my first baby. Now he's three and uses it to build forts in the playroom, definitely gorgeous ones which makes up for the mess.

I love her patterns - the tunic looks fabulous - it's easy to attempt a bag from scratch but I find that never goes too well with clothes! I'd love to enter your contest.
