My new tutorial, a discount code, and a giveaway.

Hi Everyone,

Here is the real pictures of my project that went live at Cutting Corners this morning.

This an iPad carrier/ purse. Here are some more shots.









Last One


I designed this a few months ago and have just been waiting for them to schedule me :) It is a huge tutorial there are about 110 pictures. LOL I hope  you all will go check it out and leave me a comment over there.

I met with my Moda rep yesterday. Shout out to Angela you are the best! She is totally adorable and don't tell anyone else but I think she is my favorite :) I ordered two amazing lines one that you all know very well... here is a hint...



Yep, I am a little late to the party but I am getting some Sherbet Pips. The other line is coming September and it is by one of my favorite designers. I think you will love it. There will be tons more to buy at market too. I can' t wait. So to celebrate let's have another giveaway... I have 2 more charm packs just like the one above. See below for the rules.

I have tons more stuff up on my coming soon page in the shop. I ordered a line that I think you all are going to love called Dazzle... go check it out. I am giving you all a discount code for 20% off for the shop this week it is MARKET20 I should have more things up in the shop this weekend and I will keep the coupon in effect until Monday 4/25

Giveaway Rules (the usual) three chances to win:

1. Leave a comment about anything you want but would love to know what you think of the items on the coming soon page.

2. Become a follower or let me know that you already are.

3. Blog or tweet about the giveaway and the coupon code (BTW my twitter name is @intrepidthread)

Talk soon!

Kumari Garden adn Garden Holiday are my favorites in the Coming Soon group. The butterflies are great, and so are the large "leaf" prints on the white background--so I think both lines are great.
Thanks very much.
