May Giveaway Day


It's May Giveaway Day (all week, actually!).  This is a great event hosted by Sew, Mama, Sew! and includes lots of great giveaway prizes.

The item that I've chosen to give away to one lucky reader is a Flex-Frame Eyeglass/Gadget Pouch, made by me.  Even though it's designed for glasses, you can use it for lots of other things - how about a rotary cutter case?  (sorry - glasses & rotary cutter not included).  If you'd like to see more of these flex frame gadget pouches, I have several listed on my Etsy shop called Cotton Cellar.  Click here to visit my shop.



A Flex-Frame pouch is so easy to use with just one hand - simply squeeze the sides of the pouch top and it pops open, then snaps shut again when you release it. I have added a split key ring on the back of the pouch so it can be attached to a belt loop, purse or backpack. So handy when you're hiking or biking! Just clip it on and off you go!


The main outer fabric is medium-weight cotton, imported from Sweden, with funky retro-style eyeglasses printed on it. The sleeve that covers the flex-frame, as well as the inner lining, is a black and white contemporary quilting cotton. The pouch and the sleeve are entirely backed with fusible fleece for extra padding to protect your glasses. The top of the pouch is top-stitched with a double row of black stitches.


The main pouch measures 3 1/2" wide and 6" long. The overall length, including the flex frame at the top, measures 7".


I've shown two pouches here, but the giveaway is just for ONE (glasses & rotary cutter not included). To enter the giveaway contest, just leave a comment below this post indicating which color you like best - red or yellow.


The comment period will close on May 25th at 8pm EST, when Mr. Random Number Generator will select the winner, and I will announce the winner here no later than May 26th.  If you're a no-reply blogger, please include your email address in your comment so I'll be able to notify you if you win.  International readers are welcome to participate.  Good luck!


And don't forget to pop on over to Sew, Mama, Sew! and check out all the other great prizes.  We're all linking up over there, so you can see what every one else is giving away.


Comment period is now closed.  Winner to be announced shortly!  Thanks for participating in my giveaway!

  88. Lots of fun stuff out there, but your glasses cases caught my eye! I'm going to go and browse the rest of your blog and enjoy your creativity. If I'm picked (*pick me! pick me!*) I'd like the red case.

    Thanks so much for entering and posting on Sew, Mama, Sew. I didn't think I wanted to ever do this, but after seeing yours--well, it's positively inspirational!

    (And although I don't have a cellar, I, too, have plenty of fabric!)
