Lucky lucky lucky

Friday was a great postman-day. I received my winning-parcel from Jane's giveaway - wow!

A big bunch of beautiful fabrics! Jane makes the most beautiful things with these vintage (and some new) fabrics, just take a look at her shop - those pillowcases are adorable (and so is everything else)... No wonder my bunch has some pretty-pretty-prettiness in it:


Receiving all these pretty fabrics (Thank you SO much still once, Jane!), made me think... I will most definitely keep most of them myself *ahem* but it definitely wouldn't hurt to pay it forward, just a little of this prettiness, there's so much to share. So I took a look at my own stash, and almost the first little patch of fabric I saw was an autumn-ish little mouse picking some berries, perfect!


...and within a few minutes I had also chosen some of those winning-fabrics to go with the mouse, and to the sewing board I went. I am not a quilter by any standards, but...


 ...Pouches I have sewn quite a few. Hello little mouse!


I chose some of my own and some of Jane's fabrics, and added some felt lingonberries on top too. There's a zipper on top of the pouch, and a tiny pocket inside too.


And this little mouse-pouch I'm giving away - if you would like to win it, just leave a comment on this, today's post, and I'll pick the winner on September 15th. I will ship the pouch (and some chocolate in it too, definitely), anywhere, so everyone's welcome to participate! Good luck to you all, and...


 ... Happy Sunday!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. It seems that I should be so lucky with giveaways by Jane, I have won three times in these blogging-years of mine, and two of those generous ladies were Jane! So if you have any Jane-giveaways in mind, just let me know, please, as they say: there's no two without three!

P.P.S. There's still a autumn sale in my shop, with the code LEAF13 -25% off!

Ha ha Mia, it must be our names bring you luck! What a lovely giveaway you won from another Jane. Such pretty fabrics and before we can blink you have created the sweetest purse. What a great giveaway, thank you for offering it. Now I have also been lucky in the past with you when I won my little Heffalump pin...should I be looking for some more Mia's!? Happy week to come my dear, Jane x

Dear Mia, I'm so happy you wonthose most beautiful fabrics! There are in deed so many that look 'like you'. In no time you made the cutest pouch and I love the mouse and lingon berries! Thank you for sharing - I would take good care of the little mouse! If you like to make a little patchwork, I can show you how to make an easy bird (one new project in my mind). x Teje
