It's Dilly Bag Show & Tell Time!

 No more dilly dallying - it's time to show off the Dilly Bags I made recently...

Judy Newman's Dilly Bag pattern made making these bags a breeze. I think you can guess that I had a lot of fun picking out the fabrics.

Introducing the Red Top bag

with it's fun heart circle bottom. 

It has happy word lining to whisper lovely things to the projects it contains, and a delicious pocket.

By chance a lot of the feature hexagons on this bag have friends on them. A pair of children, a circus ringleader with his horse and there are some others on the other side too. As I sewed these hexies together I came to think of it as the Friends Bag.

 This little teapot says it all. 

I love the whizz fizz summery colours of the other bag.

It features happy things like bike riding and little scottie dogs, spots, dots and flowers. 

and a fussy cut flower underneath. 

Hidden inside is green leafy lining and more cute pockets. 

I couldn't decide which ribbon to use so I used a combo. 

The bags are the perfect size for a carrying around a hand crafting project and it's notions , but it's tricky to be able to tell the size of things in photos sometimes so to give you an idea Rachaeldaisy Barbie offered to stand in as a model. 

If you're in the mood for a story here's a link to the Colourful Hexagon Adventure that I wrote last year inspired by these hexagons. 

This Giveaway is now closed - Congratulations to Dzintra, Queen Of the Armchair
There is a reason it's taken me a while to share these Dilly Bags. I've been saving them up as my blogiversary giveaway to celebrate my 5th year. One of these bags will soon have a home with one of my wonderful followers. 
If you would a like to chance to win simply:
Say "Yes please!" in your comment and tell me which one is your favourite,  either the red top bag or the one with the plaid top. 
You must be a follower of Blue Mountain Daisy, it is a blogiversary celebration after all. 
New followers are of course very welcome. I'll happily ship anywhere in the world.
I'll put the names into a Dilly Bag and draw a winner randomly in 2 weeks. that's the 2nd of May, 5pm Sydney time.

These are gorgeous. I do love the detail in all the fabric hexies. Such a lovely project! How can you bear to give one away?
Of course I am going to say yes, please! And it is no surprise that I will say the red topped bag.
I hope you have a lot of fun with your give away!!

Patchwork and Play said...

Oh yes please!! What a generous giveaway Rachael! I love BOTH your delightful dilly bags, but if push comes to shove (sorry, this giveaway could get ugly!) I think the red lining and its 'afternoon tea' pocket wins me over! I love Barbie as a model too- I might need to use one of mine in a fabric post! Happy blogiversary- I always look forward to reading about what you are up to!

Linda said...

Yes, please!!!! They are both lovely, so it would be very hard to choose one. Perhaps the plaid topped one? But the red topped bag is equally pretty.

Karen said...

Oh yes please!! Plaid top. I am a BMD follower. Thanks for hosting this give away. Mrscummings2u at Gmail dot com

YES, PLEASE!!!! How could a quilter choose? Both bags are perfectly adorable, and you do such a lovely job of fussy cutting and focusing on the sweetest part of each fabric. I love your attention to detail -- it is what sets you apart. In the end, though, I'm a "red" person, so if the choice must be made, I choose Red Top with all its happy pairings.

Kyle said...

Yes, please! Your bags are delightful and your give always is so generous. I'm loving the red topped bag full of friendly thoughts.

Swedish Scrapper said...

Yes, please! You are kind to part with 2 labors of love. Both look like Friendship-bags to me! The plaid top has colors that make me sing and I love the two different ribbons (I can never decide either :=) so that one edges out the red-top teapot dilly, ever so slightly for favorite.

Danette Stankovich said...

Yes, please! Lovin' the red top one. These are just adorable! It makes me want to make 1 (or 2). I'm following on bloglovin' Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net
