Wow! Thank you so much everyone for all your help in choosing a name for this little tote bag. Your creativity is amazing and I loved reading all the comments and your wonderful ideas.
There can only be one pattern name and one winner of the kit though, and that’s Solstitches who was first to suggest the name “Summer Birdie”. I spent a very long time indeed thinking about all the Sweet Tweet suggestions, and although it’s a great idea I decided that it’s a bit too close to Sweet Pleat to use as a name for this bag. I’m not always the best organised and can see myself getting in a bit of a muddle when sending out patterns. I’m going to hang onto the idea of a “Sweet” range though, just not with a second part that rhymes!
I have chosen not two, but five runners-up who all suggested the name Summer or Summertime Birdie (but Solstitches got in first!). The runners up will all receive a copy of the “Summer Birdie” bag pattern. They are….
Gudrun (Summerbird), Catherine (Birdie Summer), Sandra Schwab (Summer Birdie), Beth Butcher (Summertime Birdie) and Christine M (Summertime Birdie).
Please can all the winners get in touch to let me know their up-to-date email addresses, (and for Solstitches your postal address too) and your prizes will be on the way very soon indeed. The Summer Birdie Bag pattern will be in this month’s Bustle & Sew magazine (out on Thursday), after which I’ll be listing it on Bustle & Sew.
