January 2013 Giveaway - Kim's Colourway

21/01/2013 - Matt Chatterley

It's cold out there - so warm up with Kim's Colourway!

Kims Colourway banner

Hello everyone and welcome to our first giveaway of 2013 - which is being posted a little late as things have been rather busy here! I'm still in the process of handing bits of the site over to Rosa, and we're both still in the process of juggling little Erik most of the time!

One of our old friends here at Handmade Crafts has stepped in to sponsor this months giveaway - Kim from Kim's Colourway, but if you're interested in sponsoring a future post - please get in touch. The only cost to you is the prize you donate (and any postage) - and you get some great publicity in exchange!

Kim's Colourway Bag Kim is a wonderfully talented crocheter who produces some beautiful items (we've actually just ordered a few things from here - some for Erik and others as gifts for friends) - but because everything is handmade to order, she can tweak things for you too - different colours, different sizes, you name it!

The rules are: to enter, visit our sponsor's link(s) (at the end of the post) and post a comment here, telling us which of their makes you like the most. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway will close at midnight (GMT) on Sunday 27th January 2013.

But for now, over to Kim!

Kim's Colourway BagI wasn't sure which item to giveaway this time so I asked my Facebook page likers to help me decide. The options were an infinity scarf/cowl, a bag or a live forever plant. The item with the most votes won so this month's giveaway prize is a bag!

This bag has been crocheted with various pinks, red and a bit of brown. Then I machine sewed a cotton cupcake fabric lining onto the inside, crocheted the edging and back to the machine to add the beech effect handles. I also attached some beads and braids onto the outside.

I hope you like this prize as I normally make and sell this style of bag for £35.00. Feel free to have a look at my Facebook page (which you should 'like' too!) and website.

Have popped by and liked the facebook page, and popped by the website also. Its so hard to choose my favourite item as they are all amazing and all so bright and colourful but if I really had to choose one item it would be the alphabet cushions they are really cute :D
