thank you, thank you, thank you for making my comment wish come true. i was so excited to reach 20, and even more excited to keep going past it. in fact, i was so excited that i decided to give back. yes, i decided to put the names of all who commented into my stocking and draw a name for a special prize. i was already planning on doing a giveaway in the new year, but i definitely felt that getting so many comments was reason for a giveaway now. so, don't you want to know who the lucky winner is? well, you will have to wait until the end of this post. first, i have to talk about the latest gift i made.
i made this purse for my niece for christmas. i used the pleated beauty handbag pattern from the book bend the rules sewing by amy karol. of course, i wanted it to be smaller than the pattern, so i spent some time decreasing the pattern to get the size i wanted. sorry for the dark photos today. it is dark everywhere in this house today. not good for picture-taking. but i digress...you want to know who the lucky winner is? congratulations kristi! you're prize will be in the mail soon. what is the prize? well, let's just say that it will be related to the now famous post. ok, ok, i know it is not famous. but hey, i'm excited, ok?
