Questions Answered, Contest Winner, and a Coupon Code

Wow, you guys blew me away with your 652 comments! AND you got me to the big 100 on both my blog followers and facebook fans? Ya'll are awesome.

It was great watching as the comments came rolling in, I so enjoyed reading what you guys would do with the charm pack (so many great ideas, and I found it amusing how many of you would be content to just spread out the fabric squares and gape!) and what could potentially go in the wristlet. Yep, it's a perfect size for your little digital camera or for putting in keys, cash and cards, and chapstick for a night out or quick trip. Many of you said you'd give it to a special little girl in your life, and I think that's the sweetest!

Normally I try to respond more individually to blog comments, but given the number I find it easier this time to say a big group thank you to everyone! And I'd like to answer the questions that were asked, as well. The fabric for the wristlet is Patty Young Flora and Fauna on the outside matched up with Castle Peeps by Lizzy House for the inside and the straps. Yes, the Keyka Lou pattern is a great one to sew! Her designs are brilliant, and her instructions are clear with helpful pictures. As for the iron on labels I put in my bags, I designed them myself and then had them printed through Etsy seller Bitsy Creations.

OK, now let's get to the main event. As promised, I've chosen a random winner from all the entries. And that person is #422... Corina! She commented: "I would love to make a quilted tablecloth for my picnic table. The charm pack would be perfect! The wristlet would perfect to take when walking the dogs. You never know when the ice cream truck will come around!" Fabulous! Sounds like both items will be put to good use. Corina, I've sent you an email and can't wait to be sending a package your way. :-)

I only wish I had something to send out to every one of you! But there is something I can share with everyone, and that's a coupon for my Etsy shop, in which there are more of the cute little wristlets you all have plans for. SO head on over there and enter code GIVEAWAYDAY when you check out. It will give you 25% off anything in my shop... but only until the end of the month, so get a move on!
