Well, we have completed our checkbook covers and I'm already dreaming about sewing my bag for May! This month's project was pretty fast to sew! Seriously, it took longer to cut and fuse than it did to sew. I see a few more being made for gifts by the year's end. There were not a lot of submissions for this project–it really was easy and a great project to learn how to layer pockets and use magnetic snaps if you have not done that before.
If you are considering this project, you just need scraps of fabric (maybe from a previous project in the book), I made cardstock templates for easy cutting.
I would love to hear from the Style Stitchers that DID NOT use home decorator weight fabric–How do you like your result? I used home dec fabric and I love it, it is very nice and crisp.
Here is a picture of my inside:
Maria shall laugh every time that she uses her new wallet…
Emily's bag has dots and more dots…
Here's a bright cover from Sperluette, it will not get lost in a bag!
Everyone (even if you are still working on your bags) should give yourself a pat on the back and put cheese on your next sandwich! You deserve it. Congratulations on making your bag, they are all great, by the way!
For April, The Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011 sponsors are:
Above All Fabric, who is awarding a $25 gift certificate!
Fat Quarter Shop, who is awarding a $50 gift certificate!
Now, let's announce the 2 winners for this month's challenge.
I used Random Number Generator to select the winners…
Now, you must SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO CLAIM YOUR GIFT CERTIFICATE. The first person who sends me a message gets to pick first, the second person gets the alternative gift certificate. You can reply to this post if you like, but you must send me a separate e-mail to claim your prize.
My address is jemelliahilfiger AT yahoo.com. I suggest copying and pasting it to get it correct.
If you have not e-mailed me within 7 days, I will draw for another winner.
Congrats to everyone who made a bag for the challenge, told someone about the challenge, or both!
A very big thank you to our April sponsors!
Check back tomorrow for May's bag post.
