Hey there readers!
So I said a couple blogs ago that I had reached my 100th post and would do a give-away. I asked you what you wanted and it seems you want handmade :-)

I have been racking (wracking?) my brain to think of what I could make (that wasn't TOO time consuming .. my life seems to be really busy somehow .. 3 kids/homeschooling .. guess that'd do it?!) but was still cool and useful. 

So when we had a slight mishap the other night with Master 4yr when his hot water bottle developed a hole (whilst in bed, it wet him, the bottom sheets, the top sheets, duvet cover .. gosh! How can a little water get so far!) I thought I need to make another wheatie bag (his one had been taken my Miss 20months).

Perfect idea for a give away!

This is only for New Zealanders (since postage would be huge since they're fairly heavy!) sorry any overseas readers! 

I made this one for my little girl tonight...

It matches her duvet cover I made (see post here)

As you can see (and don't look too close, I didn't trim the straggling strands!) it has a cover (so you can take it off and wash it).

The one I'm giving away I can make with this fabric if you want (the cover that is), or you can choose a different fabric - I've got a few in my cupboard, so I'll let you choose if you are a winner!

All you have to do to enter is make a comment below it's as easy as that :-)

I'll draw a winner (at random) next week, Monday 8th July at 7pm so get your comments in before then!

Good luck!!
