It's a big day! Backpacks, features, and giveaways!

*the giveaway is now closed*

Well the day has come! Today you can find me in a couple of places...

First off, you can find me over at Moda Bakeshop Today with my tutorial for my Owl Tag Along Toddler Backpack. This was my winning entry for the Moda SLICED competition. And now you can all make you own!


Moda Sliced Finals - "Owl Tag Along" Toddler Backpack






Secondly, you can a feature of me over at Sew4Home. This is a really fun website with lots of great tips for all kinds of home decor and sewing. As part of winning the competition, I am featured over there today.


Sew4Home, transform your space. Find home decor, home design and do-it-yourself, project ideas, design inspiration and how-to guides.









And just because I thought it would be fun, with all of this featuring going on, we are having a giveaway HERE sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop! In the spirit of precuts and Moda, they have offered up 8 charms packs of California Girl to be split between 2 lucky winners. So that is 4 charm packs each!! (and if you win, might I suggest a lovely little quilt pattern I designed perfect for charms, Picket Fences...lol)






yum! That's pretty!



To enter the giveaway, I would love if you hopped over to the two sites and left a comment on each. You can leave a separate comment here for each comment you leave on those sites. So that is 2 possible entries!

Moda Bakeshop

Sew4Home

And if you are a NEW follower, go ahead and leave a third comment letting me know. (Faithful followers, you know we do this a fair amount and sometimes it's fun to mix things up a bit...so let's let the newbies have an extra chance today!)



I hope that you all enjoy the backpack tutorial! I worked very hard on it so let me know if you have any questions. I want to see bunches of toddlers running around with their very own backpacks!!


Woohoo! what a fun day!  Help me Celebrate!

  78. Well this was a very nice surprise to find. I came over to your blog after leaving a comment at the Moda Bakeshop on your adorable Owl backpack post because I was going to send you an email privately as well. Then I saw this post and a giveaway so I am just leaving the comment here instead of emailing.

    I just wanted to tell you Congratulations! once again and to thank you for the beautifully written tutorial for the backpack. You did a great job on that so now once my Granddaughters are old enough to need a backpack, even if just to come spend the night at Grandma's, I'll be able to make one of these too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I have also left another comment at Sew4Home also Angela.
