OK folks! Here it is.
Instead of weeding the garden or chasing the dust bunnies under beds, I have been working on my 200th post giveaway. I felt so bad that my 100th post went by without so much as a hiccup, that I just had to make the effort to make something for one lucky person.
But . . . now I’m thinkin’ that I really like this one too much to giveaway – I LOVE these colors! Really, though, I will give this wall hanging away to someone. This is my thank you to everyone out there who has stopped by and had a visit with me at some point over the past 200 posts.
But I will be making another one for myself really soon . . . there are still lots of prints to choose from in my Scrap Bag. Maybe the second time around I’ll make up a pattern and tutorial for a future post.
Remember my MODA Scrap Bag that I got a couple of months back? I discovered many of the prints are from Fig Tree's Patisserie collection and they worked up into this beautiful muted toned wall hanging. The colors in this fabric line are gorgeous and I’m telling you that this looks pretty awesome hanging on my wall right now. So if you’d like to see this hanging on your wall really soon, keep reading to the end of this post.
I designed this pattern to use the raw-edge appliqué technique that I have so admired from Kellie’s Don't Look Now! blog and have used in a number of other projects. This technique is quick, fun and very rewarding – if you haven’t given this a try yet, head over to Kellie’s blog to find a couple of free patterns to give it a go. You won’t be sorry!
I love these little covered buttons that I used for the tabs . . . they really add that final little touch to a lot of my projects lately – can’t get enough of them! They are so quick and easy to use, and make such a big difference.
So here are the rules:
- Leave me a comment (could be anything like "WOW! I have just the spot for that!" or "Gotta have it!" - really anything goes (within reason, of course!)
- If you want a second entry link to my post with this picture on your blog, then come back and let me know you linked it.
- Make sure there's a link back to your blog (or an email address) so if you win i have some way of contacting you!
- Check back here next Friday the 14th to see if you’re the lucky winner.
While you gals are all busy posting, I’m going to track down some fabric to make the binding for this little lovely!
‘til next time,
