BEAUTIFUL BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

Those lovely folks of Penguin sent me the most pretty of books to giveaway. It is full of sweet pictures with lovely blue and grey backgrounds, very minimalist  and oh so pretty fabrics and the sweetest and cutest little girls. It is called Girls Style Book by Yoshiko Tsukiori 
It is full of beautiful clothes patterns for little girls from size 2 to 10. 


The patterns are not for someone who hasn't sewn much before but there are a few things that I think would be quite straight forward. I will even give one a go! Look how cute these kids are!!


The clothing is very sweet and looks a little vintage. I like the clothing style a lot, its very pretty but not in a frilly over the top way. I like that. The instructions are very detailed  and if you are a good instruction reader you will be able to make EVERYTHING in this book. It comes with an envelope in the back with all the patterns which we like.



  I have 2 copies to giveaway!  


If you would like one please leave a comment below. 


Entries are open until Fri 27th January midnight. 


Winners will be notified by email.  


Only open to Australian residents- sorry. 


Feel free to tweet, facebook link etc to this giveaway.

  13. Oh so sweet - a little bit quirky and a little classic. They look gorgeous - perfect projects to make for my girls (7 and 2) and their friends!! (2012 is my year of making presents/things instead of purchasing mass-produced products - had some interesting responses so far but you never know it might catch on!)
