Giveaway Day

This Giveaway is now closed. A winner has been chosen.

Today is Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew and I am participating on both ends of the giveaway. First I have something to giveaway.
I have made a framed clutch.


Making framed clutch purses are my new addiction! I just love making them. This one is approximately 7" tall, 12 1/2" wide and has a 3" base. It is made with squares of Summer House and natural linen, lined with a pop of orange polka dots

and has a zippered pocket inside.

There is some detailed stitching in dark blue on the outside, both front and back. I think it turned out really pretty and it is a great size for carrying around on an evening out.
As a little bonus I am throwing in some scraps, mostly Riley Blake and 5 patterns for some random things that I have collected and never used.

Patterns:
Whistle Creek Scrap Bag
Kitschy Corset Apron
Amy Butler Laptop Cover and MP3 Case
Little Girl's Twirl Skirt,  Petal Jumper and Petal Purse
Izzy and Ivy Jack and Jill Hats
This giveaway is open to everyone, international included.  To win, no jumping threw hoops just guess what Christmas song makes me cry every time I hear it. You have to get the artist right too. If more than one person gets the answer right (or no one guesses correctly) then Mr. Random will have to choose a winner. This giveaway closes at 5pm PST on December 16th and the winner will be announced on Saturday, December 17th.
I said I will be playing along on both ends, so now I need to pop over to Sew Mama Sew's blog and check out all the other giveaways. Good Luck!
Because I am going to be scanning all the other giveaways, please forgive me if I do not answer your comments. If you have a specific question you can shoot me an email.



Thanks for stopping by,

Don't suppose it is Fairytale of New York by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl? Seriously, I know that is the wrong answer but I just can't think of the right one. Great giveaway even if I have just guaranteed I can't win!

I will guess I'll be Home for Christmas by Bing Crosby.
thanks for the lovely giveaway!

Catherine said...

I'd never heard Christmas shoes before but so many people had said it that I looked it up on youtube. It almost made me cry! So that's looking pretty likely. But I don't want to copy everyone so I'm going for Do They Know It's Christmas? by BandAid.

Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

DangAndBlast! said...

Christmas shoes by Bob Carlisle, I"d guess! (Used to get me, now I've heard it too much.)

Beth said...

My guess is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". The artist is hard, though. Judy Garland's isn't as wrenching as the one done by...oh my gosh, I'm blanking on whose version that is. James Taylor's is good, but the one that kills me is an older version. I'm not at home, so can't check, so I'll go with Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Judy Garland.

Danny said...

Bob Carlisle - The Christmas Shoes

Natural Violet said...

"I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Bing Crosby makes me teary eyed. Cute bag and thank you!

That interior zipper is a really nice touch. Hum. Christmas song and tears...... Silent night by various artists.

Barbara said...

That's a lovely purse and I would be honored to carry it.

I'm sure this isn't the song that makes you tear up, as it's so obscure...but on the John Denver Muppets tv special (long ago) they did a song called When the River Meets the Sea. It's beautiful and always brings me almost to tears.

Shanny said...
