Day 4 already – WOW! Thanks for your vacation comments on yesterday’s giveaway. They sound amazing! I am reminded of how many non-North American readers come to visit this blog when I hear your favorite vacation spots are somewhere “close by” in Europe, or Japan! Also, there is a very prominent theme of people who like beaches, and/or nature – specifically quiet nature. I was feeling like some quiet would be good today after traveling with my (thankfully) pretty well behaved kids in the car all day! (and… PS… I’ve saved my favorite fabric combo for the last giveaway tomorrow… since it also happens to be my Birthday!)
I made the pouches for today’s giveaway quite a while ago. Actually, I made 6 of them. I’ve used 4, but saved the last two for a giveaway – and this week was it. I LOVE the cuckoo clock fabric on these, and the retro records, and the Lotta… what can you say, it’s Lotta! The fabric for these is almost all from a 10×10 precut bundle I picked up from Warp & Weft at the Fall Creativ Festival last year. (The records are from Double Decker Fabric.)
The pattern for these little pouches is based on Cynthia Frenette’s “I Can See Clearly Now” Pouch. The original is much larger, and wouldn’t fit within my self-made 10″x10″ constraints. I tested the original pattern for her and use those pouches all the time. They are perfect for sewing supplies, patterns and things the kids need to bring in the car. I’ve actually brought the other 4 smaller ones on our vacation – here and here. You can get Cynthia’s pattern in her shop, and see my review of it here.
Here’s the detail recap again: Each day this week I am posting a new giveaway. Each giveaway will stay open until midnight on July 21, 2014 (EST). The giveaways are separate, so come back each day to find out what that day’s prize is and to enter for a chance to win! The giveaways are open internationally – so everyone can have a chance!
