Now that I have posted all the giveaway winners, I can tell you about my morning at Joann's! Our store was just renovated(and boy, did it need it!) So for three days they are having a great sale. The first fifty people each day receive a $5 gift card. Add in the fact that I had a 50% off one item coupon, and I had a fun morning! I have been seeing all of these great patterns for lunch bags and pool bags that are lined with laminated cotton BUT it is expensive and I wonder how it sews so this was a great opportunity to try it out. The fabric was $13 a yard, but half that price and add in the $5 card so the total cost was $1.50! Who can beat that? And I think it is gorgeous!  I also found a couple cute fabrics to make some small bags that I couldn't resist. Great shopping...I only spent $7.93 and have some really cute stuff to work with!

The fabric on the left is a cute Robert Kaufman print. Who doesn't love cats and sewing! The top right is the laminated cotton and I just love the bird print on the bottom right...Isn't it adorable?

Giveaway Winners

All right, it is time to announce the winners for my 3 giveaways! What a fun week it was(well, except for Tropical Storm Debbie who dropped 12 or so inches of rain on us!)

The winner of the Traveling Stash  is Karen P. Congratulations and I hope you have as much fun with it as I did! I have sent you an email.

The winner of the Sewing Mat is Connie. Congrats! Hope you like it as much as I do! An email is on the way to  you.

And the final make that two winners  (because I could only squeeze so many pattern envelopes into the mailing envelope) of the Children's patterns are: Tricia and Southern Gal.

Emails are on the way to both of you! I am throwing in a little surprise with the patterns that I hope you can use and enjoy!

Thanks to all of you who entered and check in whenever you can because I have some other giveaways planned for the future!

Would you believe another giveaway?

One is good, two is better, and I guess three is best! While I was going through all of my patterns and such, I realized that I had a bunch  for little girls dresses that no longer will fit my granddaughter(Most are size 1-4). Why keep them when I can have a giveaway and someone who can use them can win! So I will stuff as many patterns in a flat envelope as I can and send it on to the winner! Here are some of the patterns I found.

How do you win? Just leave a comment, any comment will do but I do love hearing about sewing for kids and their reactions! For a second chance, follow my blog and comment that you do. For a third chance, mention the giveaway(s) on your blog and let me know that you did!  Giveaway ends June 28th at midnight with the winner chosen on the 29th. Please be sure that I can get in touch with you!

Another Giveaway!

I figure that if one giveaway is good, then two must be better! So here is a giveaway open to all! It is a cute little ironing mat that I made using Stephanie's tutorial  at Sewing by Stephanie. It is bright and cheery. I had fun making it and it is thick so should  be good for ironing. This sure makes it easier to press your quilt pieces! The photos aren't the greatest but I hope you can get an idea how it looks. The mat is 30" X 18".
