Sunday Giveaway....Billy Boy & Mia

Welcome to Sunday Giveaway...
This is something brand spanking new for Jogirls Journey...and hopefully something that will continue. I was inspired by all the wonderful things out there on offer and wanted to start promoting some great aussie products, that are mainly handmade, made by wahm (like me) or at least are created here. Each week I will be giving something gorgeous that I have found out there, and would like to share with you!

If you have a beautiful product or creation, drop me an email and I will include you in the giveaways! We have some beautiful, unique and lovely items all coming up on Sunday Giveaways, so make sure you Follow Me to keep up to date...

Sunday Giveaway will run every Sunday (for as long as I can!), with a new Giveaway starting each Sunday and closing at midnight the following friday. The winner will be drawn by one of my peeps, totally random, and the winner announced on the following Sunday Giveaway...

So, to our first Sunday Giveaway...may I introduce....


Sarah from Billy Boy & Mia has gifted this scrumptious prize pack for our winner today.

Here is a little about Sarah & Billy Boy & Mia -

My gorgeous Granny taught me to sew on the old Husqvarna when I was young, plus embroider, make lavender bags, knit and generally make crafty things, always as presents. Luckily my mum had the same sewing machine that I have now sort of inherited (thanks mum!), and I decided two years ago to get back into making presents for friends and family.

I started ‘billy boy & mia’ as I thought perhaps I can sell these hand made things online as well. I work full time in an office job in IT so it’s great to have a creative outlet. I love finding and using pre-loved fabrics, especially those fabrics with great patterns and textures, and I love the sentimental value they may have with them already.


The fabulous prize for this weeks giveaway is -

Rosebud purse
This lovely Rosebud Zippered Purse is made with a heavy cotton fabric in a bright yellow with ‘shades of pink’ rosebuds and green leaves. It is fully lined with a fresh 100% cotton aqua, pink and yellow check. It has a handy side loop and is a great size for your lippy or use as a purse for your coins and cards. Approximate size is Width 14.5cm by Height 9cm. RRP $14

Barry brown pants

This sweet long limbed rabbit called Barry is handmade with soft yellow fabric from my grandmothers scrap box, and has finely striped brown pants. With diamond textured arms and legs in shades of brown, this softie has an embroidered face and is filled with non-allergenic polyester fibre filling suitable for littlies. He is about 16 inches (41cm) from the tip of his ears to his toes, and his tum is about 4.5 inches (11cm) wide. RRP $22

How gorgeous are they, dont you just want them, I know you do!

So to enter, it really is as simple as this -

Pop on over to Sarahs gorgeous stores, either her etsy shop here, or her madeit shop here and tell me what your favourite item is in the shop by leaving a comment on this post!

Giveaway Closes midnight on Friday, and the winner announced on the following Sundays Giveaway..that easy!

Hi Jo! What a fantastic competition! I've checked out Billy Boy and Mia's fantastic goodies and I love the Pleated Rose Coin Purse... it would go perfectly with an outfit I've bought for the races in September!
