giveaway :)

So, like I promised, a little giveaway to celebrate 500 followers! You guys rock. I honestly never thought anyone besides family and friends would want to read my blog. Cool beans. (does anyone even say that? Why did I just say that…) Moving on.

I put together some fabric, ribbons, bias tape, some buttons, felt flowers, and a whole mess of appliques. (perfect for gifts…slap it on a tee, sew around the edge and you’re golden) I also made a little “Artsy Clutch”, from the Bend the Rules Sewing book by Amy Karol. (fun book, btw!) I made it with my prized piece of Amy Butler Wallflower fabric. wowsas. Don’t act too impressed.

Just a little something to say thank you!
