mobile giveaway


Alrighty! Have you been following Made by Rae and MADE's Celebrate the Boy Month?

About a year and a half ago I was chatting with my sister-in-law, and she was telling me how hard it is to find a cute boy baby mobile. She suggested I try making one. After a little trial and error, I created the airplane baby mobiles I sell in my esty shop.

In the spirit of Dana and Rae's CTB, where they are focusing on sewing projects for boys, I thought it would be perfect to give away one of my airplane mobiles. So, a couple months ago I emailed Rae and set it up!

Just comment on this blog post to enter, and make sure to include your email in the comment (loni (at) gmail (dot) com).

I will be closing the giveaway on Sunday evening at 10 pm MST. Afterwords, I will pick a winner at random and post it here, as well as email the winner. Also, I will ship anywhere in the U.S., but sorry, this give away isn't open to international winners.

Thanks for stopping by!

PS for the next week I will be offering 10% off of all items in my shop, using the coupon code CTB2011.

Happy Valentine's Day! We treat this holiday pretty chill around our house, however we will be going out for some yummy indian food at our favorite restaurant tonight.

I ran across this cool card on etsy today. I love it. It reminds me of my favorite children's book, "C D B."

The card is from voltapress's etsy shop.

Amazing Quilts

Maybe one day I will finally catch up on the 1000's of blog posts that my google reader so nicely informs me that I am behind on... but probably not! I was kind of making an attempt to catch up just barely, but I got side tracked by these lovely quilts, blogged by Ayumi of Pink Penguin. She went to a quilting festival in Japan and posted upwards of 50 pictures of the quilts there. I am amazed. You MUST to check it out! You won't be sorry, I promise!

So... I'm finally posting some projects from Christmas

I remembered today that I haven't posted a few of my sewing projects from Christmas time.

I sewed this bag for my grandma! She is kind of hard to shop for but who doesn't love a new handmade bag? Plus, she is pretty much the queen of sewing and is always doing everyone else's sewing projects. For instance, she took my wedding dress and deconstructed the sleeves, then changed them from a cap sleeve to a 1/2 length sleeve with a cuff which I LOVED. She had to do all this hand beading and craziness. Basically she is awesome. Anyway, I figured she would enjoy something sewn for her instead of by her for once. :)

The tutorial from the bag can be found here.
