The winner!

Thank you for entering the giveaway for Laurie's Don't Be Crabby fat quarter bundle last week! I am not surprised so many of you wanted it! It is a truly cute fabric line! Luckily, there are many fabric stores that carry her fabrics, so even if you didn't win this bundle, you will definitely have a chance to score them in your local shop or any major online fabric stores once it starts shipping in December!
The random number generator helped me pick a number as usual.


The lucky 262th entry was Katie of My Sandbox!


Congratulations, Katie! I will contact you shortly!

Oh, I have had very many people asking me about the pattern of the bag I made with Don't Be Crabby. I made the pattern, inspired by a similar bag I saw at a store.

Patchwork Bag for Kerry ;)

This is also a bag I made using the same pattern (except for the patchwork layout on the exterior.) This was for my sweet friend Kerry who had her birthday in September. To me, a combination of orange and aqua is so Kerry and I have wanted to make something for her using the combo.

Patchwork Bag for Kerry ;)

It was truly fun to combine fabrics I know she likes and some fabrics she had shared with me in the past. It is always nerve-wracking to make something for someone who you know can make a much better thing, but somehow I don't feel nervous making anything for Kerry. It's probably because she is so kind and forgiving. I just knew she would appreciate it even if she could make a much cuter bag effortlessly!

I hope you have a Happy Halloween wherever you are!!


P.S. November blocks for Super Penguin Quilt Along will be a few weeks late! Since many of you must be busy sewing up a storm in anticipation of the holidays, I am hoping to design some easy and quick blocks for November!
Thank you for all of you who have made any of the SP blocks ;)

  15. Love this bag, and the fabrics. I would also like to chime in and say I would love to make this bag. But, I know you are so busy right now. I have already put your book on my bookstore wish list. I will be patient, and wait for the book and the bag pattern. I hope you are having a lovely day!

  19. Have you shared it yet? the picture is quiet broken, I wish I can see the bag you've made who's everyone asking to have the tutorial with and of course the fabric you've used.
