belated presents and a winner...

i had been a bad bad aunt...
until i had seen amy's fantastic make from gwen's fantabulous tutorial.


my niece and nephew were turning 7 and 5. let's correct that...my niece and nephew had turned 7 and 5 and i had been a little negligent in getting presents to them on time.

then i saw amy's super cute pencil case and knew they would be perfect.
gwen's tutorial is extremely straight forward and goes together like a dream. what's more it uses scraps for all the little extra pieces.
i even had some little pink cloud 9 flannel pieces to make the eraser fluffy and even more lifelike!


not as a result of how i interpreted the pattern but as a result of how awesome the is pattern in the first place, i can hear the squeals of delight from here when Anastasia and Luka open their gifts and think i may just have been forgiven for being late.

talking of being late and hopefully being forgiven...

i am a couple of days late drawing the winner from my giveaway from last week, but hopefully the winner at least will forgive me...


and so the winner is...

number 29...

swathi from the saffroncrafts!

congratulations swathi, there'll be a bunch of goodies off to you!

a huge thank you everyone for entering. 
i really appreciate the support and the fact that you wanted some of my things...free or otherwise!

and now if i can just remember what swathi has bought from me in the past so i can send you something different...

Adorable! I love the idea of using flannel for the erasers... brilliant! And the interior fabric choices are divine!
