Giveaway - blogiversary and 100th post!

As promised, it's time for a giveaway! It's a special occasion -- today it's the 2nd blogiversary for this little blog of mine. This is also the 100th post on Moonbeam, and I just realised that I have 100 followers on Google Friends Connect as of today!

To mark this occasion, I've got 2 freebies for you to grab. First of all, this beautiful lightweight cotton. It's 2.50m long and 1.10m wide - don't you just love the delicate pattern? It would be perfect for a summer dress, or a cute little top (the Alma Blouse, anyone?)
The second freebie is some dried lavender. Remember the lavender bags that I made earlier this year for my mother-in-law's wedding as favours? I have over 500 grams left, and although it is making the house smell incredibly relaxing, I thought it would be time to part with it, and let it go to another home. 
To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post before the end of Saturday 21 September (midnight GMT). If you would prefer to enter for only one freebie, please indicate this in your comment. Otherwise I will assume that you are entering for both. Everyone is welcome to enter, and I will ship them worldwide. The winners will be picked at random, and announced on Sunday 22 September. Any questions, just ask. 

Best of luck! And happy giveaway!

  14. Hi Alice! Happy blogiversary! Just wanted to say that as a novice sewer, I love your blog and find it really inspiring :-) I particularly love your version of the Alma blouse, it's definitely on my to-do list for when I finally get my head around those dreaded fitting issues!! Louise xx

  15. I like your clothes. I actually have some of those same patterns; it's fun to see other people's executions of things I hope to make some day. You crank them out at an impressive rate!

  16. Congrats Alice. Your blog is so impressive & a huge inspiration to me. How do you find the time to do all of these incredible clothes & items? I am just starting to sew with the help of my mum & aunt. It is going to be so rewarding once I complete anything. I have decided to make a skirt for work, quite plain but practical. I look forward to more amazing posts. I will be bugging you about sewing advice in the near future.

  17. Hi Alice, I would love to win either the lovely fabric or the lavender (which would be a great start to practicing christmas presents!). After seeing your favourite dress creations I bought the pattern and am mid-way through construction so thank you for the inspiration to try sewing my first dress! x

  21. Congrats Alice. Thank you for the giveaway. I bought a sewing machine 2 months ago and made a Sorbetto top and now I'm hooked! Friends and family are surprised about my new hobby (very different from my geeky job too!). I'm happily building my stash and would love to have the beautiful fabric. =))

    You have been very much an inspiration, the self made wedding gown is AMAZING! Wishing you all the BEST and keep those posts coming!
