September Giveaway - Rocket Rose

20/09/2013 - Matt Chatterley

Win a Ravishing Rucksack from Rocket Rose!

Rocket Rose - Rucksack And so, inevitably, the weather has turned - and the "C" word has been uttered (under a third of the year to go, you know - and a cheeky photo of some lovely decorations in this post). We've also had a good month on our blog - with a couple of different posts going out.. but it's that time again - Giveaway Week(ish)!

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 the items you've seen is your favourite. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway will close at midnight (GMT) on Saturday 28th September 2013.

If you'd like to sponsor one of our giveaways, just get in touch with us for a bit more information. It's not hard to take part and is a great way to advertise your makes!

This month is kindly sponsored by Kerrie from Rocket Rose, who has sent us some gorgeous photos of her makes - sadly they don't all fit in this post - you'll have to visit her links to see more!

Rocket Rose - Snood Here's Kerrie...

My name is Kerrie and I am the founder and owner of Rocket Rose. I've always been creative and love the sense of achievement I get from a finishing a handcrafted item.

I graduated from university in 2004 with a degree in Fashion Design but since leaving uni, I've worked in the finance and legal sectors. As I've always had some sort of sewing project on the go, I decided to just jump right in and turn my hobby into something more… and Rocket Rose was born. If you want to know more about my journey in setting up Rocket Rose then why not pop along and follow my blog.

Rocket Rose - Christmas Decorations I make high quality bags and accessories using adorable printed fabrics which are fully lined and would make ideal gifts for your family and friends.

I have a full time job and I make my products in the evenings and at weekends and have just started a Christmas range which will be available on Etsy next month. Follow @RocketRoseUK on twitter to keep up to date with when new items are listed. If you see a product that you would like in a different fabric, then drop me an email at info@rocketrose.co.uk.

This month I am giving away a beautiful rucksack made from 100% cotton and soft leather-effect fabric worth £20. Good Luck to everyone taking part!
