Palmetto Handmade Updates + First Giveaway!
The giveaway is now finished. Thanks for all of the hearty participation!
I’ve been busy putting some great new fabric into action in the sewing room. This weekend I added several new small purses into Palmetto Handmade at Etsy and hope to add more in the next week or so. I’ve been designing some other quilts and baby gift sets, too, and hope to put them in the shop in the next 2-3 weeks!
I used to sell these small purses as “Verse Purses,” but now I am listing them as small purses with the option to add a Verse Purse Card Pack for a few additional dollars in the store. That way people can buy the purses without the cards if they want.
Natalie Jost is one of those friends I “met online” that I wish I could hang out and work with on a regular basis! I actually met her through a Christian web design community, but we share a mutual passion for so many other things. She loves Jesus and has been a good friend to me over the last couple of years. I wish we lived near each other so that we could get our families together and go crafty crazy, but it’s probably for the better because we’d certainly be dangerous if left alone with our tools and hundreds of project ideas!
I’m excited to share that Natalie has designed these fabrics for me to use for the purses! I’ve had it on my cutting table for a few weeks in hopes that I would have the chance to sew with it. Natalie is a fantastic graphic and web designer with a love for color and fresh concepts. Her business is Olive Manna, and she runs an Olive Manna Etsy Store selling items featuring her original designs. You’ll definitely need to check out her affordable and practical products!
I’ve never hosted a giveaway on my blog before now, but I’m excited to offer a free Verse Purse to one of my readers this week in conjunction with the new line of purses in my shop! Just leave a comment on this post indicating which Verse Purse card topic you would like if you win (click here for topics), and I will draw for a winner after midnight Wednesday, July 8th!
*** update: Natalie’s throwing in a 20% off coupon for Olive Manna to the winner. Yay! ***
