Zakka Along 2.0 Patchwork Please/Triangle Patchwork Box Pouch and Giveaway's Galore!!!...


Good morning cute people!!
Today is my day for the


This is my friend Ayumi's new book...
Patchwork, Please!

Let me just tell you, 
everything in this book is sweet and adorable...
just like she is!
I'm not even kidding.

I love every single project in here...
you all know how I love patchwork and
 Ayumi's work is no less than spectacular:)


Quite a while ago...
Ayumi told me that she was working on a book and
 asked me if I would participate in the sew along.
 I literally could not wait for it to come out and
 to get my hands on it and make something fun.
I told her I would be thrilled!

 Lindsay asked me to make the 
"Triangle Patchwork Box Pouch"
on page 108 
as part of Zakka Along 2.0 
and I jumped at the chance!

I mean who doesn't love a sweet little patchwork bag?



I decided to make two because
 why not???
It's just as easy to make two at a time:)
I used fabric from my scrappy
 stash baskets that I posted about here.



Each step was fun and
 Ayumi's instructions are great!

Above are both panels and bottom sections 
all quilted and ready to sew.


The back of the quilted panels...
and also my chosen lining fabric.


The beginnings of one of the top sections...


and I continued until...


All finished!











These were so much scrappy happy fun to make!
Thanks Ayumi...
for such a wonderful project...
and of course a wonderful book:)


Now for the giveaway's galore! 
A few of the sponsors of the Zakka 2.0 sent me some fun products to giveaway!

1. Aurifil - Lovely and useful thread packs!

2. Form and Fabric - a fun fat 1/8th bundle and a super cute sticker!

3. Pellon - Charm sample packs of their awesome products!


And that's not all..

I bought an extra copy of Ayumi's awesome book to give away!

Simply leave me a comment about this post
 and you will be entered for the above 4 giveaways...
I'll draw a name on Thursday about 10:00 PM:)



You can join up with the Zakka Along 2.0 
and link up your finished project to win even more!
