Hey everyone :)

Thank you all so much for purchasing the Dancing Hearts wrap pattern! You guys are totally awesome :)

To celebrate the success of the pattern and the general groovy-ness of Design Wars, I thought a giveaway was in order. But then I thought: why have one when you can have two! :)

I’d like to give 5 readers the chance to win the pattern! For your chance to win, please comment below saying what colours you were to use if you would make the wrap.


And for the people who’ve already gotten the pattern; mail me your receipt (winkieflash at gmail dot com) for your chance to win 2 skeins of Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby yarn in green and mint!


I’ll pick winners for both giveaways next week! :)
