Here are the winners of my 1st. Giveaway!

Thank you very much for your comments on my Giveaway post!
I wrote down all of your names on pieces and my boyfriend fold them in four. They were approx. 200 pieces!!!! I used recycled paper as always. If you got any package from me, you know that I use recycled catalog or Japanese maps to my package. I also use recycled papers when I make patterns (* v *)! I like drawing, so if I find paper near me, I cannot stop writing or drawing on it.

Oh,, I'm sorry. I should return to the giveaway...

At first, I thought to make three boxes for each giveaway, but some people wrote their two choices. It became difficult to separate.
My first giveaway, drawing
So I put all the names in one box, and picked five names from it.

!!!!Here are the winners !!!!
My first giveaway

My boyfriend picked the first winner, Annette!!!!
She chose the giveaway 1, Sashiko stitch book. Enjoy the book!

The bundle includes two fat quarters and some smaller pieces. The foot stamp one is the fabric of Japanese tenugui, hand towel.

Giveaway 2
I made the Eiffel Tower with cotton linen fabric. I cut the fabric with allowance and sew it putting the right side inside. When I finished the tower shape, I sew the edge line again to make it like the felt one. It comes fat one, but I like it!
