Rudolph's Gift Guide Day 1: Sew Fantastic Review & Giveaway!

**Contest Closed**Terri has been sewing since she was 6 years old and made her very first quilt when she was only 15. She is self taught from books found in the library and lots of practice on an old Singer sewing machine. Terri began selling her tote bags and purses on Ebay when she was pregnant with her daughter. About a year ago, she opened up Sew Fantastic on Etsy and has been enjoying all of the wonderful feedback she has received from customers ever since. You can view some of her beautiful work on Flickr. Terri lives with her beautiful babe, Sophia and husband Rob in Vancouver, Washington. They love hiking, biking and camping in the wilderness.

For this review, Terri sent me the Purple Blooms Carryall Clutch. It measures 6 1/2" wide by 9" tall when closed. The main material is a sturdy oatmeal colored osnaburg accented by the purple blooms fabric. It is beautiful, practical, and the quality is simply amazing. Terri included a notecard and hand-made gift tag with my clutch. Thanks to Terri for making me a beautiful product! When my daughter is older, I can't wait to buy her a Crayon Wallet like this one.

Do you have someone on your Christmas list who is hard to shop for? This would make a wonderful gift. I like to stock up on items like this and wrap them up around the holidays. This is one of my favorite holiday tips: If a friend comes over with a gift and I haven't purchased one to exchange, I run over to my gift closet and grab one.

Terri has a variety of fabrics to choose from. In fact, she tells me, "I am a severe fabric junkie. After all they say whoever dies with the most fabric...WINS." Are you dying to get one of these for yourself? Well, you're in luck!

BUY IT! Currently, Sew Fantastic is offering 20% off your entire purchase! Use code: Rudolph2009 and you will receive the discount through paypal refund after you checkout. Or you can request a revised invoice before paying.

WIN IT! One fortunate winner will receive a $20 certificate to spend in the shop!

  6. I would love to see something similar to the crayon wallets but geared for older kids. Older kid designs on the fabric and room for sketch pads and markers or colored pencils? I love the crayon pouches for my littles but the bigger girl would want something a little more fitting for her teen sensibilities. LOL
