Welcome to our Giveaway Day! - Sew Mama Sew

Welcome to Ella and Nesta's Little Room! It's wonderful to be part of Giveaway Day again! We are joining as our little thank you for all the generosity we have been receiving lately from  friends in blogland (lots of thank you posts coming up soon!).



If it's the first time you're visiting our blog let us introduce ourselves: we are a Mother and Daughter team living in Italy who enjoy quilting, sewing and craft in general. We love sharing our ideas with the wonderful sewing community and have a tutorials page with lots of fun projects. We hope you enjoy having a look around. 
A big welcome back to all our friends! We love reading your comments, they really make us happy. We also enjoy reading your blogs and looking at the lovely projects you're all working on. 

This year we've been very pleased to see one of our tutorials published in the beautiful magazine Made in Felt:




We're also very excited to have had the opportunity of joining the group of Italian bloggers: The Creative Factory.

The Creative Factory

We're working on different projects: finishing bee blocks, a baby quilt, purses and enjoying all the sewing time we manage to fit in! 

1. Crossover purse; 2. Pearl Button Pincushion;


And now for the giveaway! We are giving away some craft supplies:
  • 4 fabrics (about 10x11")
  • 1 reel of ric rac trim
  • embroidered ric rac trim on wooden clothes peg
  • 1 3D crown charm

To have a chance of winning these pretty craft supplies all you have to do is:
  • leave a comment telling us the name of one of your favourite sewing blogs/sites;
  • for followers, new and old, another chance of winning: leave a second comment telling us how you follow our blog! You can follow us on Pinterest and Instagram too.

The giveaway is open to everyone and we will post the prize anywhere in the world, closing on May 10th. Mr Random will then choose a winner who will be contacted by mail.

Good luck!
