Little Bag Giveaway!

I am excited to be participating in my second Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I am offering a simple “Passport Bag” based on a design from “Simple Bags, Japanese Style” by Akiyo Kajiwara. I had a stash of Asian inspired fat quarters from Andover fabrics that I thought would pair perfectly with this pattern.

I always like to add some of my hand-dyed fabrics to my projects. The appliqué circle is made with some tie-dyed fabrics and the lining is an over-dyed fabric from the Andover collection.

Cool Wristlet Giveaway – Winner!

I had a ton of fun participating in my first Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. I loved reading about all of your favorite holiday foods. I think I need some of your recipes!

The winner of my giveaway is Jinxy Jen! Here’s what Jen says about her favorite holiday food, “So many fave foods, how do I pick?? Everyone knows my love for cheese and anything cheese-related…but for holiday specific, I’d have to say….COOKIES!” Congratulations, Jen! I hope you love the wristlet.

Cool Wristlet Giveaway!

I’m always thinking about new things to make with my fabric stash. Recently I noticed wristlets on some Etsy sites. So I made up a few in my own style. Shortly after posting photos of one on social media, I had the follow text conversation with my daughter.

I was so excited when my daughter told me wristlets were popular (I had no idea) and that she wanted one for Christmas! I always put super high value on positive comments given by a young person. Because then I feel a teenie weenie bit hip.

After our conversation I immediately started cutting out a few more. I am offering up this one made with Lotta Jansdotter fabric for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!
