sakura bloom - a silk and linen giveaway

After winning The Sling Diaries I was given a gift voucher to Sakura Bloom. But, as you may have already noticed, I own a few gorgeous slings and if I add more to my collection I may be setting myself up for a quadruplet pregnancy.

So...I'm going to play it safe and pass on some babywearing love.

I'm giving away two slings - one simple sling featuring a double layer of dupioni silk (valued at $180usd) and one pure sling featuring a single layer of Irish linen (valued at $88usd).

There will be two winners. The first name drawn will get to choose either the silk or the linen. Both winners will get to choose their very favourite colour - like lavender, wheat, shale, terracotta, sangria....good luck with that!

You can enter this giveaway a maximum of three times:
  • first entry - following Che & Fidel over there on the right
  • second entry - popping over to Che & Fidel on facebook and hitting 'like'
  • third entry - sharing this giveaway on either facebook/instagram/your blog
Please leave a separate comment for each entry. (If you can't see your comment press the 'load more' link under the comments box). If you like, tell me whether you would choose the silk or linen and what colour you have your eye on. The winners will be chosen by the random number generator and published in this post on Wednesday 26th at around 9pm EST. Winners will be contacted by email. This giveaway is open to international readers.

Update: comments closed. The first winner is #230 Max, the second winner is #71 Kate. Congratulations ladies....I'll be in touch x
