With Purse Palooza 2012 going strong, I wanted to take a moment to run down some of the fabulous prizes for 3rd place. I would certainly be super-excited to win this prize pack!!
The prizewinners will be chosen on July 11th and judged from all of the entries submitted to the Flickr Group!
The 3rd prize winner will get this lovely fat quarter bundle from Art Gallery Fabrics. This is probably my favorite Art Gallery bundle…I just love the purples and greens together! And did you know that there are also patterns? Quilts, bags, clothes…you name it! The perfect compliment to your Art Gallery fabric haul!
I know I can never have enough quality sewing books! As the 3rd prize winner, you will receive these 2 bag sewing books, courtesy of Lark Crafts Publishing! The first is Hip Handbags by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader. This book is suitable for beginners, and will take you through embellishing many great bags! The 2nd book is The Book of Bags by Cheryl Owen. This book has a whopping 30 projects in it!
Olfa is offering a prize pack worth over $80 in cutting supplies! This pack includes a 45mm Deluxe Rotary Cutter, the 12″ x 18″ Self-Healing Cutting Mat, 6″ x 12″ Frosted Advantage Acrylic Ruler, and the Scallop Decorative Edge Rotary Blade.
I have and use Olfa cutting products in my everyday sewing…I have a 45mm Olfa rotary cutter, and my circle rotary cutter is also made by Olfa. The self-healing cutting mat makes it possible to use such a sharp blade without ruining your tabletop, and the nice frosted no-slip ruler will have you making precise cuts in no time! The decorative edge blade is also a nice add-on to have in your stash! I use my rotary cutter not only for quilting, but for cutting patterns pieces for dresses and bags. Be more precise in your cutting with Olfa products!
