Giveaway Day - May 2012

This Giveaway is now closed - Thank You to everyone who entered!

Giveaway Day is here! This is my first time participating in this event coordinated by Sew, Mama, Sew! If you're new my blog, I hope you'll browse through my posts and visit again. I try to post regularly about whatever I'm working on, whether its sewing, machine embroidery or other crafting and home dec projects.

 I've decided to give away this 3 piece set of zippered accessory cases:

Zip Case Set

I'm slightly addicted to these in-the-hoop machine embroidery designs from Embroidery Garden! I recently purchased the new Zipper Cases Set, and these are 3 of my 'sample' stitch-outs for the Credit/Business Card Case, iPhone Case and Tissue Case. The really nifty detail about this set is that when the embroidery is done, the inside lining is neatly finished with no seams or raw edges exposed, other than a few hand stitches.

All three of my samples are made using the same fabrics - the covers are brown batik with light teal blue flowers and vines, and the linings are marbled teal blue. The front of each case is quilted and the backs are padded. They all turned out great!

The Credit/Business Card case is about 4.5 inches wide and 3.25 inches tall and has a split ring for attaching it to a key ring or lanyard. It can hold  lots of other things besides cards, too. (The Jo-Ann gift card is for illustration purposes only!)

The iPhone Case is about 5.5 inches wide by 3.375 inches tall - I don't have an iPhone, but my Blackberry fits nicely with room to spare. My digital camera also fits in this size case. I made a matching removable strap so it can be carried as a wristlet.

The wrist strap can be used to attach the case to a handbag or tote by attaching the folded fabric end to the split ring, wrapping it around a handle and clipping the swivel clasp to the ring.

The Tissue Case is 5.5 inches long and 3.25 inches wide and can hold a package of pocket tissues. It zips up the center to keep the tissues nice and neat.

I don't remember where I bought the brown batik fabric and I wish I could get more of it! I only have a remnant left, so this set will be one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind if I cut very carefully!
