giveaway day!!!

It's another GIVEAWAY DAY, people!!! :)

I had actually never heard of this before (for shame!) but now that I've found out about this giveaway who-ha, I'm super excited! Every year Sew, Mama, Sew! hosts a giveaway day where bloggers are encouraged to have handmade giveaways on their blog. FUN! I'm joining in this year and am giving away a cute little drawstring bag.

I made this bag using Jeni's tutorial (it's so fun and simple to follow!) and Oliver & S' Cape Ann fabric in periwinkle. I am planning on making a lot of these bags this year to use as wrapping for Christmas gifts so it'll be like to gifts in one! Anywho, one lucky winner will win this cute bag which I'll fill with other bits of crafty goodness including some designer fat quarters and fun notions. :)

If you'd like to enter to win, you have two opportunities to do so!
  1. Leave me a comment in German. Just kidding. Leave a comment in Italian. Ok fine... just leave me a comment in whatever language you would like to. Even English. :)
  2. "Like" {me and elna} on Facebook and then leave a second coment here saying that you did! If you already like me (you really like me!), just leave a comment saying that.
International comments are welcome!

Comments will close at 5:00pm PST, this Friday, December 7th and I'll draw a winner that night. Make sure to leave your email address in your comment/s so I can make sure to get ahold of you this weekend; I'll announce the winner here on Monday morning!

Also, be sure to stop by Sew, Mama, Sew!'s list of all of the yummy giveaways going on this week... there are such great handmade gifts out there waiting for a new home... head over and start commenting, yo! :)
 xo, Kara
