The Racy-Lacy Winner


Congratulations, Sew Hopeful!

Please do email me your full name and address so I can send this little package on its way! One day (hopefully soon-ish) I look forward to seeing what you make of it… but I feel like I’ve won too – having found another gorgeous sewing blog that hadn’t crossed my radar before :)

I’m looking forward to my second year of blogging and I have a bazillion ideas that need sewing up, preferably right now. I’ll have to be patient though… things are a wee bit crazy at chez poppykettle right now. Thanks all for your wonderful comments and support!!!!

Much Love, 


One Year Blogiversary Giveaway


Wow. Whodathunkit? When I started this little blog, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

So to celebrate 1 year down, I’m giving away a 2m x 0.98m piece of the lace I used to make my Ladies who Lunch dress. White lace not your thing? It’s 100% cotton so you could totally have a lot of fun with some dye. It’s already been ‘pre-shrunk’ by me, but the care label states a cold hand wash is ideal. This sold out on Tessuti’s online shop soon after it was listed, so I know it must be covetable!

I’m happy to post anywhere in the world – and I’ll announce the winner on the 19th of November. Until then, you can leave a comment to go into the draw, which will close at 11:59pm on Sunday November the 18th, Eastern Standard Time (Melbourne). Don’t forget that I live in the future – so check out the World Clock to see what date/time that equates to for you.

Happy Sewing everyone – here’s to another year in my extended quest to have a battalion load of sewing skills and a self-made wardrobe I can totally get excited about :)
