I am linking up with sew mama sew, to join in the big give away today.
This is the first time I have done anything like this, but I am very excited, so here goes!
A bit about me, I am new to blogging, but have loved crafts of alsorts since a young age. I am enjoying the current resurgence of crafting in the UK, and have rekindled my love of sewing and making. I love making little purses, bags, pouches, and stuffed toys. One day I will pluck up the courage to start on a big quilt!
Here are some of the things I have made for gifts this year
My blog name of Second Chance Tan is because 95% of everything I use for making things is recycled, second hand, salvaged or reused. I take old unwanted items e.g. curtains, scraps, old clothes etc, and I turn them into something new, giving them a second chance. All the things I use have memories of a previous use, and I hope I give them a new lease of life.
So, on to the give away.
As shown below, I am giving away a tote bag, this is a kind of memory bag as all the fabrics used for the petals of the flowers are made from fabric from clothes my children have grown out of. I hope you will love the sentiment behind the bag. Inside I will fill the bag with some goodies, a bag of vintage buttons, some scraps of material, lace, vintage cottons, a cute little handmade badge and something yummy to nibble.
All you need to do to enter the give away is leave me a comment, telling me one of your favourite memories from the past year. The winner will be chosen at random, and contacted by e-mail (so make sure you also leave me your e-mail address)
Obviously I would love to find some more followers, so if you want to follow me as well then that would be lovely - it's up to you :)
I will post internationally, so everyone is welcome to enter.
