Win a Loopy Lulu Bag from That Clever Clementine, Retail value: $25. The bag is fully lined and reversible, featuring a fun, retro print.

Vicki writes, “My Loopy Lulu Bags were designed primarily for knitters to use as a work-in-progress bag, but people tell me they use their bags to tote library books, their kids’ gizmos, and all manner of thingamajigs. I hope you will enjoy this figment (I mean ‘product’) of my imagination!… As a lifelong sewist/knitter/crafter/feltmaker, I am deeply immersed in color and texture. My tastes are eclectic– I’ve always been inspired by vintage and ethnic textiles, but am equally smitten with cutting-edge contemporary design. From the whimsical and amusing to the ‘sensible and clever,’ I love combining new and repurposed materials in new (and quite possibly eccentric) ways!” Visit Vicki on her blog and the That Clever Clementine shop.

Tamera from Peanut Envy writes, “I create handmade plush Matryoshka keepsake dolls for children to play with and cherish.” This week you can win a $25 gift certificate to Peanut Envy, which you can use towards a Matryoshka Plush Doll like Helga here!

This week you can win a copy of the Versatile Messenger Bag PDF pattern from Candied Fabrics, along with all the hardware and hand dyed canvas you’ll need to make one! The winner will choose colors from these palettes. Retail value: $60.

Candy writes, “I am addicted to color! I dye fabric so I can have just the hue and texture I want, and then I use it to make art quilts and ‘everyday art.’ I’m an avid blogger and I’ve had several publications in art quilting magazines. These publishing opportunities have led to me filming 4 episodes of the PBS show Quilting Arts TV (703, 709, 901 and 903). I also have a DVD workshop just released by Interweave titled Dyeing to Stitch.”

    Thanks so much for the chance to win a great prize!

  137. Jane says:

    Great selection of prizes. I am curious about US shipping only. when you pick someone how are you aware of their mailing address. Do you wait until they have been notified and then determine and is it because of increased postage costs. Do yourselves or the folks who donate the prizes make the determination.

    Nevertheless you have a great site and blog and offer a great many wonderful projects which I could not complete if I lived to be 200 years old.
