Round 4 of the Old Red Barn Company Quilt-Along....

A GIVEAWAY, MOM?

COOL!

ORBC Round 4 Giveaway- The Sewing Caddy


Round 4 brings us another giveaway for one of our lucky quilt-along-ers! This time it's for a sewing caddy/organizer/travel thingy that was designed and sewn by me. There is also a tutorial posted here on my blog that will show you step-by-step how to make your own, if you should choose to do so.


The needle/pin holder flips up to keep sharp pointy things under cover.


Removable trash bag and gathered pocket on this side.

To help you with your hand sewing, here's your chance to win a sewing caddy that folds up and keeps little hands (or paws) out of it when you're not using it. I made this out of Fresh fabric, the little hummingbirds and butterflies are sooo sweet! On the outside of the caddy, I enhanced a few strategic places with hot-fix Swarovski crystals, like on the ruby throats and some flower centers, a little glitz never hurt anybody, right?! Right!

Leave a comment here for a chance to win this sewing organizer/caddy. The drawing will be on next Friday, the 20th, in the AM. To follow tradition, my own little white random generator will draw a name or pick a number or something. :)

If you've been taking part in the Old Red Barn Company's quilt along at Flickr, then you know about the newest round we're doing- the Circles, Curves and More quilt, blogged about here at Pottery and Everything Else, created, taught and led by the fabulous Heidi Elliot or as we like to call her, Hats! This week we're learning how to piece the crazy 9 patch. I'm excited to get started.

Happy Quilting and good luck, people!

FIRST!! Heh - it's the little things, eh?

I could have used one of these this evening! I've just spent 2 hours tieing off, stitching in and snipping loose threads from Mam's Christmas quilt. Little red bits all over the living room!! Still, it kept me entertained more than Tom Cruise being all Mission:Impossible-ish.

(if I ask nice, can I win the random-generator kittie? Pretty please?)

Nichol said...

Floss!!! Thank you for another chance to try and win something! I LOVE these caddies you have made. This one is gorgeous with all the birds and butterflies. I'm right behind Lynz.....should count for something! (she's good luck you know) :)

Marianne said...

I love your sewing caddy. I was looking at your tutorial the other day and plotting sewing one for use when I do hand applique but I would really love to win one made by you! Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

Love your blog!

Thank you Flossie!!! This is sew cool and I love the cute and bright fabrics used. I can just see it draped over the arm of my sofa which is where I usually leave my bits of thread.

That is the cutest portable sewing caddy ever! I love the little threadcatcher.
This would come in so handy when embroidering on blocks - so easy to take it everywhere!

How cute is that?! Seriously! You are so clever!

Nanci said...

This is the cutest sewing caddy and a perfect idea to keep the nosey cats out of our stuff. Thanks for having this fun giveaway.

Barbie said...

Wow, so sweet! What a perfect idea for keeping everything organized. Right now I have all my pins, thread, scissors, etc. on top of the piano to keep them out of little hands. Thanks!

ladmquilter said...

Flossie that is sure one great giveaway I love it. Thanks for the chance to win it is to cute with the humming birds. It would keep my 2 yr old grandson out of my stuff. What a great caddy!!

Lynne S of Oz said...

Pick me, pick me, Flossie! It's so pretty! (OK I could make me one if I had my sewing machine, my fabric, my rotary cutter, my mat, some sewing thread, the good scissors...)
We're moving back to Oz shortly. sniffle/yay!

Susan said...

How Pretty! And so Useful. I hope to spend some time this weekend starting my cutting on this quilt a long...though I was planning on doing the snowball option, but those other options make me want to do one of those, too. Oh Well, you can never have to many projects or too many quilts:)

ircabbit said...

That is so cute! I totally need one of those to keep my stuffs in order when I sew on the couch. Count me in!

Beth said...

DEAR Flossie! How cool to get something from you in the mail! If I don't win (come on Nosey), my life goal will be to get something from you! I love the hummingbirds!!

Rafael's Mum said...

That looks so fantastic! Thanks for giving it away! I will have to mark and print your tutorial as if I do not win I am making one!! Thanks Flossie!

bonnie said...

Tacie said...

Oh, goodness, that is adorable! I would love to get me one of those! Wish me luck!

Susan R said...

Oh my gosh I need to get in this one! I would love to have this little gem for the time when I start my hand quilting (so I don't sit on something sharp while on the couch) or when I find a little furry baby to adopt. I'm starting to think that just might be a good idea, since so many little ones (or mature ones) need homes. Anyway, please count me in and maybe NP will pick ME!!

NP you are a little talker now huh? You are certainly getting cuter and cuter every time your sweet Mom takes a picture of you!

Susan

Kristin said...

That sewing caddy is amazing! I have never seen anything like it (but I am new to sewing).You have such great fabrics too!

Jo said...

Oh I love this caddy, and have it marked in my favorites so that some day I will attempt to make it.... but if I could win it that would be wonderful.. Thanks for the chance Jo (sewjo2009)

badlandsquilts said...

You always find the cutest fabrics that I have never seen... Oh, I would be so happy if your little friend picked me!

Bec Clarke said...

What a wonderful giveaway. I would love to go into the draw. I am following the Quilt along in my dreams, I just don't have the time ATM but am taking notes.

Heathir said...

I have this organizer bookmarked to make. Such a clever design!

Tricia said...

So cute! I think I'll be making one of these!

Kim D. said...

Your organizer is wonderful, please enter me in your drawing. Found you through another blog and love your little owls on the previous post. Just darling.

Threeundertwo said...

Can I enter if I'm not doing the quilt-along? I absolutely love this.

Barbara said...

Your blog is cute and love your sewing organizers. I love your kitty....she is so cute!!! Thanks for sharing. Hugs. Barb

Susan said...

Everyone is welcome to enter! And thanks for all the sewing caddy love. And Nosey Parker says hey. She's in a big paper bag right now, or she'd help me type this. :)

A place to put all those needles,buttons, snaps,scissors,threads,and scrap pockets, makes me want to do one for all my stuff,too.
Such a flare of fabric colors and flavored stitchery makes sewing fun! ASPEN LOGGER.

Nosey Parker reminds me of my six-toed white cat, "MISS PRIS",,,,smart and playful, whether you like it or not. Hooray for CATS! ASPEN LOGGER

Best caddy I've seen. You thought of a place for every notion you might need when sewing. Your choice of colors is very attractive.

Jenni said...

Will NP deliver it if I win?? LOL
Your choices for fabrics are always the best. You really do have incredible talent for putting colors together.

Susan said...

I might move up the drawing to Thursday as Friday is shaping up to be pretty busy for Nosey Parker. Y'all wouldn't mind if I did that too much, would you? :) And sorry, Nosey Parker is staying right here. I can't trust her to come back after making deliveries, last night her daddy had to chase her around in the dark for 15 minutes in order to wear her out so he could catch her and get her inside for the night. I thought he'd be angry with her, but he was crooning in her little pink ears when they came thru the door! (They are so cute together, he just LOVES her!)

Thanks again for all the lovely compliments!

That sewing caddy is cute! and I love the fabric the cat is sitting on too!
