Monday Giveaway!

Time's up! Thank you to all who entered and visit again soon for more giveaway-fun!
Let's start out the week with a little giveaway, shall we??






Sometimes "blunders" turn into something good...for example...I was making a knot bag for my friend, Mandy (who designed my blog!). I used this cutie pattern HERE. I had never made a lined purse before and messed up by cutting two of the same thing, when I should have cut pieces that mirror each other....long story short, I bought more fabric and did the same "stupid thing" when I cut it,....but this time it was on purpose so that I could use all the fabric and not waste any...it just gave me two bags instead of one!


It is reversible and uses Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks Fortune in Chocolate on the "outside" and a pretty fuschia print by Kaffe Fassett on the "inside". The bottom is reinforced with stiff interfacing. This bag is about the size of a 5 lb. bag of sugar, from base to top of handle.

*note...I did not write this pattern and bags made from this pattern are not for resale.


So, why don't I just give the extra bag to one of my sweet readers??

The aprons are very cute on your Etsy site and the bag for your give away is clever (but is it big or small...hard to tell)? Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I thought the 'Modern Quilter' sketch was a great idea with it's little quilt falling out of the picture! Very cool! Like your knot bags too. I have the site earmarked to make one 'someday'; my girls love changing pocketbooks like they do their undies!!! Would love to win yours and watch them fight over it. THey'll be living together in the fall since the youngest graduates from HS this week and will be attending college in the fall...should be an interesting scenerio, especially when you throw in that older brother lives there too! What fun they will have and hubby and I an empty nest after 30 years! Can't wait!

Very nice store and my favorite item is the Picadilly Lily Mini Quilt. I agree that more sketches would be great.

Jackie said...

I love everything in your shop, but my favorite is the sewing machine drawing with the tiny quilt. That is absolutely fabulous!!!! My daughter's favorite is the Little Red drawing. I would love to save for one of those or wish I was talented enough to trade something for one.

The little bag is darling. Thanks for the giveaway.

I LOVE the Pop Garden pillow cover. I think we have very similar taste in fabrics, I love all the colors in the shop and here on the blog! I found you through Hernanamer's blog and now I'm following!

I really like your modern quilter drawing. I think I saw someone link to that before and I really liked it then too. The other thing I liked was the pillow cover. I have wanted to quilt myself a pillow cover for awhile, as well as many other projects... oh well. Very nice shop!
Thanks for doing the giveaway, I love that purse.

I love the Little Red Original!

She is a favorite around our house and I am attempting to make an entire costume for my two year old so she can be her for Halloween!

Lynsey Grant said...

I love, love, LOVE the fabric elephant. I think it would be cute if you did a couple different animals with different fabrics, too. Just an idea. I am definitely going to buy one, one of these days. Just let me get graduated and gainfully employed :)

Lynsey Grant said...
