Olive the Ostrich & Artsy Crafty Babe Giveaway

Squeal. That's what I did this morning when I woke to find an email in my inbox from Beki over at Artsy-Crafty Babe. I've seen so many of Beki's awesome projects in many of my absolute favorite craft books and magazines, and I was just tickled when she agreed to play with Olive the Ostrich.

Ready to see the awesomeness? You're gonna squeal too!

I've been stalking scallop projects on Flickr and Pinterest of late so when Beki emailed me about  this little cutie she made, I could hardly contain my self. Beki designed it as a ballet bag for her daughter. And its reversible so Olive the Ostrich can hang out in the inside the bag or on the outside. Olive hanging out with ballet slippers and tutus. Tee hee. I was in ballet until I was a teenager, so the memories this little bag brings back are just fabulous. I just LOVE it Beki!

So dear readers, would you like a FQ set of Olive to play with? The collections doesn't start shipping to stores until November, so here's a chance to get some onto your sewing table before then. Skeedadle over to Beki's blog before Monday 9/24 and leave her a comment to register to win.

Love your whimsical fabric! I commented at Beki's blog that I'd make something for my two nieces who are sisters, but I also wanted to comment to you that I've gotten the rainboots fabric in two different colorways to make them something and one of them is getting a quilt using Pooches and Pickups for Christmas. (Her request was blue and green with dogs, so I was tickled to still get some of that yardage.) Thanks for your great fabric designs! --Becky C.
