Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Prizes: Oilcloth Treasures

I was a very lucky girl and ended up winning two prize packs during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway week in May.

Here is the second prize - all the way from London, England!

Yeah - not London, Ontario - I'm talking the real thing - England!


Sometimes when you're busy entering giveaways in this extravaganza, you lose track of all the things you've entered to win.

But not this one.  I remembered it well and was so excited to learn that I had won.

As the weather has been turning more summery, I've noticed that I don't really have a good way of holding my purse with my keys, phone, wallet, etc in it and pulling the wagon with the kids in it at the same time.  I used to be able to put a few essentials in my sweater and go.  But now I don't wear pockets.  Gah!

So when I saw this cute little backpack made out of oilcloth as one of the prizes, I knew that I had to have one.  I actually looked up how to make one and everything.  Thank goodness I won, because I don't think my sewing machine is up for stitching through that much thickness.

And it's perfect!  Hands free to wrangle the children and fashionable.

I love it so much!

And if that weren't enough, I also received this lovely piece of oilcloth.  I wonder what I will make with it?  It's so romantic looking.

And again, if that weren't enough, I also got this awesome eReader cover made of oilcloth.  Oh my gosh!  My Kobo fits in it so nicely and it's so pretty!

Fantastic no?

Want to know where I got all this stuff?

And then go over there and ogle other stuff by this awesome blogger?

And maybe stalk... um... I mean... learn all about said awesome blogger?

I got all these prizes from Dianna Jessie!

Check out her blog.  It has links to her bag and purses and tutorials.  Oh my!

My sewing machine totally freaked out on me when I tried to sew 3 layers of oilcloth together. Even had to take it in to the shop! So, great prizes! And I also never have pockets in the summer!
Hope you're doing well!
