You might have noticed I’ve got a new sponsor, Studio Kat Designs. Kat designs some seriously adorable and extremely practical handbag patterns and other nifty supplies. I asked if I could review one for her Welcome post, and look what I got! 2 lovely patterns from the lovely postie! I am so excited to try them. What I CAN tell you is that they’re very well written and very easy to follow. Making handbags is kind of a sub-section of sewing, unlike clothing or quilting. But if you’re scared to take the plunge into using your yummy fabrics for your own handbag (hello One of a Kind!), let me tell you – her patterns are tops.
So when I stop feeling full of cold and get back in my sewing room, I’ll be working on one of these and I promise I’ll give you an honest review of my experience. And remember, my friends, I’ve only been sewing for like 2 years. So if I can do it, you can. (Actually, that leads me to a thought – how much fun would it be to have a Sew Along of one of Studio Kat’s lovely handbags?)
Oh, and there comes a time when quilters with limited storage capacity (me!) must look at their stash and ask themselves: Am I really going to use This Fabric? And when the answer is…Hmmmm, probably not?, the quilter knows it’s time to share it with someone who will appreciate the fabric and even use it. Right? So I’m throwing more goodies into yesterday’s giveaway. Don’t worry, if you’re already signed up for it, you don’t have to do anything! Here’s what I’m throwing in:
There are 2 Lily & Will charm packs and 5 FQs that I think I’ve cut into a little bit. So 2 lovely people will receive a charm pack and some of that FQ bundle in the background. Not bad, eh? A 9 fat quarter bundle + charm packs + matching yardage? Cha-ching! So if you haven’t signed up, get on over there!
P.S. Because I write a non-Blogger blog, I am one of those unfortunates who will lose my Google Friend Connect widget soon. I really value you as a reader and follower, and I’d like to ask you to consider following me on BlogLovin’, a free service built specifically for people to follow their favourite blogs, or by Feedburner, which is an RSS feed. Thanks!! 🙂
