Giveaway: Raincloud Purse from Debbie Greenaway

Today's giveaway is from Debbie Greenaway.

Debbie says... "Hello Everyone. My name is debbie and I am an illustrator and printmaker. Currently living in my hometown of Huddersfield, I recently returned to full-time self-employment but am still holding on to the strings of my part-time job. My work starts out in my sketchbook and through constant doodling and story sentence writing, I try to develop characters from various things I may have seen or heard. I often take my camera and sketchbook out and about with me and draw from outside observation, overheard conversations or from my imagination."


"Screen-printing is my favourite way of working and put my designs on to paper or fabric or anything else I can find, to create an assortment of items including limited edition prints, purses, stitched illustrations, badges, cards and bags. At the moment I am working on drawing people, characters with musical instruments, in the hope of creating a fictional band, some colourful images of a narrative nature and a illustrated book of sorts."


"When I can, I like to take part in exhibitions and often can be found dreaming about owning three cats. One of them is destined to be called Sir David. I like tea and can make a damn good cappuccino provided I have the right equipment."


You can see more of Debbie's work and keep up with what she's creating by visiting her website, checking out her blog or Flickr page or by following her on Twitter. You can buy her wares from her Etsy shop and her Folksy shop.

Debbie is giving away a raincloud purse - in your choice of colour: dark blue, light blue or grey.


She says "Mid - 2010, I designed my first fabric tessellating pattern using some characters that often feature in my sketchbook. At the time I was living in Manchester - the city of rain and it is a theme that can often be seen/found in my work. These naughty rainclouds like to see the world and the best way to cause mayhem is to travel around on the side of a purse."

- the design is screen printed by hand on to calico using printing inks
- the purse is lined with upcycled cotton fabric
- it measures about 14 cm wide by 11 cm (6 inches by 4 inches) tall

"The purse clouds do not like water and are a little bit allergic to washing machines, so I would recommend that you dib-dab the purse clean with a damp/wet sponge or cloth."

For your chance to win, just leave a comment on this blog post, saying which colour you would like (dark blue, light blue or grey).

Debbie is happy to ship internationally, so anyone can enter but please remember that you will be responsible for any customs charges if you live outside the UK. Leave your comment before 10pm on Friday 18th November (UK time) and I'll pick the winner at random on Saturday 19th November.

Please leave a name or pseudonym and include a blog link, Twitter or Etsy username, or email address so I can contact you (if I'm unable to contact the winner within two weeks, I will have to pick someone else so please make sure you leave a way for me to get in touch). I'll then pass your details on to Debbie so she can send your prize.

UPDATE: this giveaway is now closed.
