With Purse Palooza 2012 kicking off this Monday (June 4th), I wanted to take a moment to run down some of the fabulous prizes. And I do mean *fabulous*!!

Right now, I’m going to talk about the prizes that will be going to the 1st place winner of Purse Palooza 2012. The prizewinners will be chosen on July 11th and judged from all of the entries submitted to the Flickr Group!

1st Prize

* $50 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop         

* 3-pack of books from Martingale Publishing
* $50 gift certificate to Zipit
* $70 Pellon gift pack
* fat quarter bundle from Art Gallery Fabrics

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, Fat Quarter Shop is one of the biggest online shops, specializing in fabric bundles and quilt kits. The shop also stocks many patterns, magazines…pretty much everything you need to get your creative on! The prize offering for Purse Palooza 2012 from Fat Quarter shop for 1st prize is a $50 gift certificate to the shop! That’s a lot of fabric!!
  Martingale - Everyday Handmade (Print version + eBook bundle) Martingale - Make It Sew Modern (Print version + eBook bundle) Martingale - Bag Boutique (Print version + eBook bundle) 

 The 1st place winner will also be the proud new owner of these 3 books from Martingale Publishing. The books are ‘Everyday Handmade’ by Adrienne Smitke, ‘Make It Sew Modern’ by Vanessa Christiansen, and ‘Bag Boutique’ by Amy Barickman. ‘Everyday Handmade’ is a gem of a book…if you are a fan of Zakka-type sewing books (books with small yet beautiful projects), this is for you…and you must get it!!! ‘Make It Sew Modern’ has lots of lovely projects with ruffles and other cute details. And if you’re a bag-making fan, ‘Bag Boutique’ has some cute bags to get you going!

If that’s not enough, the 1st prize winner will also receive a $50 gift certificate to Etsy shop Zipit. As you can see by the banner, these are not your run-of-the-mill zippers. These are lovely and rainbow-colored, perfect to coordinate with all of your projects when a white zipper just will not do (although they have some of those in the shop too!!). All sizes of zippers, all colors, and special orders are welcome!
Pellon has offered a prize pack bundle worth approximately $70 in interfacing and batting products! If you know me, you know that I am a huge fan of their products…I use them in pretty much every single project I make! This is one juicy pack!
The 1st prize winner will also get this lovely fat quarter bundle from Art Gallery Fabrics. The color palettes in the fabrics are just so bright and bold…just my style! And did you know that there are also patterns? Quilts, bags, clothes…you name it! The perfect compliment to your Art Gallery fabric haul!
If you were on the fence about Purse Palooza 2012, I hope this has pushed you over it! Stay tuned as I run down the prizes for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place, as well as the prizes for the randomly chosen winners (that’s right! Prizes just for showing up!). 🙂
