Stacks and winners!

10 08 2009

On my craft room floor and desk I have stacks and stacks. Stacks of fabrics, stacks of interfacing, stacks of zippers and stacks of handles. I’m getting ready for Stitches East and have about 70 box bags that I’m hoping to get done by then. I’m hoping to have 50+ fabric bags and a dozen oilcloth ones ready for the show, plus a few more for my shop (there’s been quite a few addition in the last few weeks, so if you haven’t visited in a while, have a look!).

I spent last weekend cutting up fabrics for all my box bags as well as the interfacing. My fabric stash has decreased quite a bit!

Do I look overwhelmed?

4 piles of future box bags (top left: oilcloth bags, bottom left: smalls, bottom right: large, top right: for my etsy shop)

Straps for 50+ box bags

Handles waiting to be topstitched


Stacks of cut up rectangles of lining and exterior fabrics waiting to be interfaced


All that cutting leaves me with piles of scraps…

Which leads me to the winners of the leftover Handmaiden Mini Maiden and my pile of scraps from last Monday’s giveaway! I really want to thank everyone who stopped by and participated in my giveaway. I really wish I had enough for everyone!

After adding numbers to the comments on my giveaway post I had pick a number for the yarn winner and a winner for the scraps winner. And the winners are: Stardust B. for the yarn and Angela for the fabric scraps. Congratulations to both of you! You will both be receiving an email shortly. If you don’t see anything, check your spam!
