My first giveaway!

A couple of months ago I stopped by a Spotlight that I don't regularly frequent - I just happened to be in the neighbourhood and needed to get a denim patch for someone. As usual, I decided to have a bit of a browse around, and couldn't believe my luck when I came across a whole bunch of patterns that were on sale - some for $2 each!

Needless to say, I got rather excited and bought quite a few - after all, it's always handy to have some easy patterns on hand when you suddenly get struck with the need to sew something up!

I eventually worked out once I got home that the pattern instructions are faded in some areas, however the writing is still legible so there are no complaints from me about my bargain buys. The only thing is that in my excitement, I ended up buying 2 of the same pattern. Silly me but lucky you - because as a result I've decided to host my first giveaway.

The item is a Get Creative pattern 4008 from Spotlight. The pattern is one of a range that Spotlight seems to have released, and is a pattern for Toddler Casual Wear for boys and girls as can be seen from the picture below.



The rules are pretty simple:

- For one chance to win, leave a comment on this blog post
- For a second chance, become a follower of my blog and leave a comment stating you have done so (those of you already following me can just comment saying that you already are)
- For yet another chance, create a blog post about this giveaway and leave a comment stating you have done so with a link to the blog post

The giveaway closes one week from now (Saturday 30 January Australian EST) with the winner chosen using a random number selector.

Entry is open to everyone - happy to post to international entrants as well :)

Good luck!

** EDIT - The giveaway is now closed - thanks to everyone who entered! **
