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!
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!
