It's give away Monday...........

The Great big Give away is here.

 

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.



I can recommend nipping over to some other fab giveaway blogs I have found:-

  1. Oh, what a great wee giveaway!! I love the recycling of kids clothes idea - I'm planning a quilt made from baby clothes for next year (my 9 year olds old clothes, I'm not pregnant!! *g*)Hmm....favourite memory...

    I think my fave memory from the year was watching my kid do cartwheels on the beach in Menorca the morning of her 9th birthday. She just couldn't believe it was so warm at 8am that she could be running about in a bikini!

  2. What a lovely giveaway you are offering! Your creations are wonderful, and being a nature-lover/environmentalist, I love that you re-use and upcycle your materials. Best memory of the year... putting coins on the train tracks with my kids and then checking on them later to see how they had flattened. Simple, but special to me :0)

  3. Thank you for doing something so nice :)
    I really don't have a favorite memory of the year. But every morning, my two little dogs come up to my face when I am sleeping and give me "Good Morning Kisses" when it is time to get up and let them out :) So, those are my favorite moments of the year :)

  7. Oh my goodness what a great idea to turn your kids' clothes into a tote bag!! Love it. I can't really pick one memory from the last year, I'm so lucky I get to spend tons of time with my kids and they make great memories every day for me!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Agreed that turning kids clothes into a tote bag is a great idea. I have been saving up my daughters' dresses to one day make a quilt but the tote bag is a little less intimidating. I may have to try one myself! My favorite memory over the last year is watching my girls' eyes light up when they both won ribbons in an art contest!

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite memory this past year... Hmm... I'm having a hard time remembering much of anything right now (I blame the cold) but recently my son learned how to say please "Peabs" and it's absolutely adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My favorite memory is hearing my little boy learn to talk this year. Those first "mommy" and "love you" and even all the "no"'s. Now he has just turned two and we can't get him to stop talking!

Choosing just one favourite from this year I would have to go with my daughter and three fellow Scouts (all girls age between 10-13) beating the pants off the rest of the troops to win the Orienteering competition. 18 miles and 42 trig points in just under 7 hours. That girl's courage never ceases to amaze me.

  39. What a wonderful giveaway. I love the bag and the fact that you used your kiddos' old clothes to make it - filled with memories :)

    One of my favourite memories of this year was seeing my hubby get his doctorate. This was a milestone in his life and I am just so proud of him. He was so much in "work" zone to get there that I had to physically stop him, stare him in the eye and say: "You did it babe. Now soak it in please." He is my hero and I loved seeing him tick off a biggie from his bucket list :)

    Thank you for a great giveaway. I am following you now.

  97. This year I've been really enjoying reading to my daughter at bed time. She turned 12 this year so I'm making the most of her before she turns into a teenager like her sister and doesn't want me around so much. I used to read to my daughters a lot when they were younger but this time around it's just really nice sharing a book with her and having some special time together. I love the idea of your memory bag for your giveaway. I always try to incorporate little bits of fabrics leftover from my girls dresses/skirts etc into their quilts. Thanks for sending me over to your giveaway from mine. I don't have much time to enter manythis time around. Too busy making Christmas gifts!

  101. My favorite memory from this past year is when a friend of mine that I met in our tennis group took me out to a lovely dinner with wine included to show her support for what was going on in my personal life. We weren't "close" friends, but she opened up and wanted to give me a chance to talk and know I was supported. That was just the most lovely heartfelt thought I've ever received.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Good for you. I also make most of my quilts from thrifted items. I have a fave thrift store I visit in Louisiana. It is a church run store. proceeds benefit charities of the church and members volunteer their time in the store. they have a large area of donated fabric, sewing notions, craft supplies, etc. I have also found vintage quilt tops that were never made into quilts here. I also re-purpose whenever where ever. This is a great give away. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  120. We had a massive project at work (historic library), and I was in charge of the juvenile collection (old children's books); on opening day, we had real live children - well-behaved ones, too - eager to look at my books. So happy! (Since then, there have been much less well-behaved ones, often accompanied by very poorly-behaved parents ("no, you can't let your two-year-old rip that up, it's a first edition Cat in the Hat and worth a fair bit"), but I'll keep opening day as my memory of what it should be!)

    ReplyDelete
  121. What a fabulous prize! I also try to reuse fabrics as much as possible. It's a lot of fun. One favorite moment this year was my kids playing in a gigantic pile of leaves. They had so much fun! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  130. Well, that is an easy question for me to answer because this was the year I got married! That whole weekend, the wedding itself...so many precious memories that I will never ever forget. I feel very thankful whenever I think of it. Thanks for the sweet giveaway (and I love the recycled elephant, by the way! Whoever you made that for is lucky!)
