Oh these are cute!!

Even if I do say so ….. they really are he he. Look what I’ve been stitching - lots of “Colour n Carry”s!!!This is the kids’ version of my “Dear Diary” pattern!!!April 2012 126I’ve had a blast playing with all of these gawjus kids’ fabrics, I just want to make more and more LOL!! This is a little carry case that littlies can use to carry their colouring book (or books) and pencils and textas, and keep them all together. Just open it all up and start colouring … or puzzling … or dot-to-dotting!!!!
I’ve made some for the Boys…
And some for the Girls…
And one for either ;o)…
Some have ruffles, some have ric rac … and all are great fun and super easy to make :o).
Of course, this means there has to be A GIVEAWAY – YAY!!! Oh I LOVE giveaways :D!!
Each winner will win a copy of the pattern so they can make their own “Colour N Carry” :o).
Just leave a comment on this post and I’ll draw 3 names (using our friendly ‘random number generator’) next Sunday night – that’s the 6th May, at about 8pm Brisbane time.
Easy peasy ……. but please only leave one comment per person :o).
I’d better be off … I’ve got some pattern writing to do ;o).
