May Giveaway


The day has arrived!  Today is the first day of the May Giveaway going on over at Sew Mama Sew!  I am giving away a handmade item filled with things for you to use to craft and/or sew other items.

I am starting with this:

Bucket Made of Anna Marie's Chocolate Lollipop
Bucket Made of Anna Marie's Chocolate Lollipop


I made this bucket/basket with Anna Marie’s Chocolate Lollipop fabric.  It measures about 6 1/2″x6 1/2″x 5 1/2″.  The fabric is 100% cotton with cotton batting.

I love both of the fabrics!  Along with this, I am filling up the basket with this:


There is lace, rick rack, eyelet, satin ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, craft trim, bias tape etc.  Here are some more close-ups:
