Purse Giveaway!

Contest is now over!  Thank you for being a follower and for entering my contest!  Congratulations to Kristy of Hopeful Threads for being the winner!

In celebration of hitting a milestone of over 200 blog followers and almost 400 Facebook Likes, I've decided to give away a purse I made last year that I've never used.  It's beautiful and deserves to be used by one of my followers!

Read my original post about it here, and enter the contest below.  Contest is open to US Residents only.


I'm also participating in a huge fabric and pattern giveaway along with 17 other bloggers.  Pay careful attention to the bag above, and you should be able to figure out which fabric I've donated to the Fabric Match Up Giveaway.  It's from my favorite fabric designer, Joel Dewberry!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll decide to become a follower of my blog and my Facebook page so you can keep up to date on all the latest sewing projects I've finished and contests I am hosting. I can't wait to discover a few new blogs myself!

  33. I don't know that I have a favorite. I don't think I've ever made anything from a pattern more than once but only because I keep trying new things and have way too many UFOs and things on the to-do list. Oh and I loved that purse when you first posted it! It's just gorgeous!
