This month, we completed the Key Keeper Coin Purse and I must say, it was the fastest one with a zipper to complete! It's a cute little bag to hold some tiny items. It is a popular item at our home–as soon as I finished it, my daughter grabbed it and put some toys in it! I allowed it for 2 days, then, I confiscated back my bag.
Here it is:
and here it is with June's bag:
There were almost 20 participants this month, I thought that there would be more because the bag is so small.
This team has made more than one! I thought that I would have, too, but so far, I have not.
Marci Girl's bags are always bright, cheery, and so pretty to me!
Emily's purse has a suede for the band, definitely different and cute–that print reminds me of ikat a little.
Knitaly.Cristiana's key keeper is so flipping sweet!
And here is a bag from a first time submitter, Sam! I love this!
I'm so excited that people are doing the challenge and I love to see new people join! I love you oldies, too (I sometimes notice when regulars do not participate)! Also, I noticed that people are still submitting bags from past months and I love it, too!
Congratulations on making your bag, everyone! We are done with 7 months already! Big pats on the back (or butt), have a scoop of ice cream for breakfast!
For July, The Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011 sponsors were:
Above All Fabric, who is awarding a $25 gift certificate! Melanie is having a sale on Michael Miller fabrics and an anniversary sale (celebrating her marriage) right now!
Fat Quarter Shop, who is awarding a $50 gift certificate! They are having an 8 year anniversary sale right now!
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 July sponsors!
