GIVEAWAY - Pay It Forward

So last May I was lucky enough to win a Pay It Forward from Molli Sparkles.  Part of the bargain was that I would host my own Pay It Forward and send something fabulous to three lovely readers within six months of receiving my prize from Molli Sparkles. Here is what I received in the post back in October ....

Beautiful.  And you know what, when I saw those cushions make their debut on Molli's blog I thought "oooh, I hope I get something like that as my Pay It Forward prize" - lucky, no?  Not only did I get two cushion covers and some washi tape but also a half yard of Floressence by Art Gallery Fabrics. 

Now it is my turn to repay the kindness - please leave a comment here if you'd like to go in the draw to be one of 3 people to receive something lovely from me, the catch is that the winners need to then hold their own Pay It Forward within 6 months of receiving my gift.  The giveaway will stay open until Sunday, 18 January 2015 (NZ time), I will then randomly choose three winners (assuming more than three people enter the giveaway). 

NOTE:  the photos in this blog post are what I received from Molli Sparkles, 
NOT what I am giving away - the giveaway prize is a surprise!

Burda Style 9494 (View B)

If anyone is interested in participating in a Pay It Forward this year, hop on over to this blog post, I'm about to get busy making something fabulous to send to three lucky people! 

Two dresses for Ruby and one for Pepper-Mae, using View B of Burda Style 9494.

I'm not really happy with how the pattern handles the ends of the zipper at the neckline, although after making three dresses I now realise it may actually be my interpretation of the pattern and I might try a slightly different approach next time.

I like to get maximum value from any pattern I buy so I will no doubt make more.  I traced each pattern piece in 3 different sizes so that I could make the dress in multiple sizes.  The fit in the bodice is quite big on my girls, but they'll be able to wear them for a couple of summers.

And some matching hairties using scraps, which are project 32 and 33 of Scraps 101.
