Thank you for entering the giveaway for Laurie's Don't Be Crabby fat quarter bundle last week! I am not surprised so many of you wanted it! It is a truly cute fabric line! Luckily, there are many fabric stores that carry her fabrics, so even if you didn't win this bundle, you will definitely have a chance to score them in your local shop or any major online fabric stores once it starts shipping in December! The random number generator helped me pick a number as usual. The lucky 262th entry was Katie of My Sandbox ! Congratulations, Katie! I will contact you shortly! Oh, I have had very many people asking me about the pattern of the bag I made with Don't Be Crabby. I made the pattern, inspired by a similar bag I saw at a store. (The original inspiration was a manufactured bag of a different size. It was not patchwork or of this small size so it could be used as a basket. In the end my bag came out very different from it.) This is also a bag I made using the same patter

Don't Be Crabby Bag + Giveaway! GRUPEN WALLPAPER

The lovely Laurie Wisbrun , the fabric designer for Robert Kaufman , was so kind to send me a fat quarter bundle of her newest fabric line, Don't Be Crabby which will be released in December 2012. Her fabrics are so popular in Japan! I come across her cute fabrics everywhere just like I used to see them all the time back when I was in the US! Laurie's fabrics are just so irresistibly cute and this line is no exception ;) I had several ideas of projects for these fabrics, but I ended up with this bag. I was able to use all the 10 different fabrics for it! Here is the other side of the same bag. And here is the bottom! It will be a birthday gift for a two-year-old I used to babysit. The bag is filled with lots of goodies and is going to fly across the ocean soon! Not sure if he remembers me (probably not!), but he'll definitely enjoy seeing the sea animals on his bag! And it makes 'me' feel good to be able to make something to show him how much he is cared for by us

Let's Bake! ~ October blocks for SP QAL~ GRUPEN WALLPAPER

It is the time of the month again! I have a new set of blocks for the Super Penguin Quilt Along! This month, we've got a chocolate bar, a baking set, and a kitchen scale! It is available here through superbuzzy ! A chocolate bar! This is such a fun block to make! Not a big fan of milk chocolate or brown fabric in general? Then maybe you can make it white, strawberry, or even greentea chocolate or possibly a combination of all yummy colors!? You are the chef! A baking set! One thing I am very pleased about this block is ease! It may look a bit complicated at first, but actually it consists of only two sections - top and bottom, which makes the whole process pretty easy and quick. A kitchen scale! This one is easy peasy and beginner-friendly! This too consists of only two sections, top and bottom, so it comes together pretty quick! Each of these measures 7 1/2”W x 7”H finished = a perfect size for a potholder if you want to turn one block into it! Here is how all my QAL blocks look l
