how did that happen?

Is it just me or is this year whizzing by?
It only seems like 5 minutes ago that I did the March freebie, but already it's time to announce April's freebie!
So lets get to it....

I have made up two piles of supplies with more than enough goodies with which to make a felt cupcake purse...(it seems 4" zips are not that easy to come by which is what inspired this freebie!)
There will be two prizes and each prize contains ::
4 pieces of 12" felt, 2m of grosgrain ribbon, a few buttons and the elusive 4" zip :-)

As always, all you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post and I will randomly pick two winners on Sunday 5th April 2009. I will post world wide so everyone is welcome to enter :-)
Good Luck!

Oh, what an exciting give away. I know my daughter would love one of the cupcake purses, so I have my fingers firmly crossed (otherwise I'll be on the hunt for 4" zips!)

Kristie said...

Yipee, I am so excited. My little girl will absolutely love the purse. She takes after her mamma. It's all about the shoes and the purse!

I just bought a bunch (like 25!) of 4" zips from Etsy.com specifically because of your cupcake purse tutorial... can't wait to make some for my girls and their friends!

jojoebi said...

pick me!
I discovered the other day that there are little metal things to go with nylon zips, you put the metal thingy on the zip to make it the length you want it (it looks like a fat staple) the cut off the end - I haven't tried it yet.

illahee said...

oh such lovely colors!!

Diane said...

Rain said...

Have just found your blog, lovely things here!

Lane said...

Super cute! My future neice (she's 5) always complains that she has "nothing beautiful". Somehow I think a cupcake purse would change all that :D Here's hoping I win...

Bryony Ramsden said...

I could so do with this little bit of niceness after the horrid week I've just had at work! I've got your instructions bookmarked so I can make some with some fat quarters and ribbony bits I've already got, but I'd love to make some the way you've got them...

tallgirl said...

I'm already thinking of Christmas presents to make and your cupcake purse features highly on my list! Thanks for the tutorial.
Nikki

pad_made said...
