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.
A big thanks to everyone who submitted an entry. I was truly overwhelmed by the response. I do have some wristlets in my Etsy shop if you care to take a peak.
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!
The wristlet is accented with hand-dyed cotton trim and a tie-dyed wristband.
ANYONE can enter the giveaway! To enter just tell me your favorite holiday food in the “comments” section.

Is it just my imagination, or are cats suddenly super cool? I have been noticing cute cat pictures and videos everywhere on social media, many posted by young, hip, style makers. I think there was a time when only “crazy cat ladies” freely admitted their love for cats. I’ve always loved cats, so I’m glad they are getting the public adoration they deserve.
So I thought now is a good time to use up my cat fabric straps and make some pom pom pouches with them. Maybe some cool cat lover will buy one!
They are all made with over-dyed cat print fabric and tie-dyed fabric. They are lined with a contrasting print fabric.
All three of these pouches are for sale in my Etsy shop.
Recently I have noticed zippered pouches and clutches everywhere. Many are made of leather in beautiful, bright colors. I decided to make my version of a little, zippered pouch using a combination of hand-dyed and print fabrics.
The pouch is 7 1/2″ x 7″. It’s fully lined with a contrasting print fabric. I got my zippers from my favorite source, Zipit. They carry any color you can imagine.
These little bags are as fun as they are practical! Great for travel.
