Finish up your carpet bags!


Hi lovelies,

How are we all adjusting to autumn? It's so cold here that I've resorted to working with a hot water bottle as well as my usual cardi, scarf and fluffy socks!

I've seen some gorgeous carpet bags popping up on Instagram and I even had the pleasure of meeting up with Kerry from Pennydog Patchwork and Wendy from The Crafter's apprentice. Kerry had with her the carpet bag she's made during the sew along. Yes I did have a fondle of that beading on the front! Wendy had a City Slicker by Chris W designs and both were gorgeous! (The bags...)

Don't forget to finish your carpet bags and then either post them on instagram using the hashtag #companioncarpetbagsal or upload them directly to Reece's site Happy Okapi for her to enter you.

The closing date is Wednesday 30th September and here's a reminder of the prizes you could win:

1st Prize - $25 CAD voucher for Emmaline Bags and one £10 Mrs H pattern bundle of the winner's choice

2nd prize - £10 for Bobbin Girl and one £10 Mrs H pattern bundle of the winner's choice

3rd prize - One £10 Mrs H pattern bundle of the winner's choice

So get posting, not long left now!
