The Curvy Wallet GIVEAWAY!!


I don't know what it is about Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day . . . there are a lot of giveaway posts all the time around the blogosphere, but the SMS Giveaway Day is just EPIC.

I'm sorry if you hate the use of that word.  In this case, it is just true.

So because I love my readers and because I do love to share with you all, I'm offering up this Skooks Original:
Curvy Wallet Front

I made this wallet awhile back . . . I ran across the pattern on Etsy and just fell in love with the unexpected shape that was still packed with function.  My Wallet Shell is a pattern by HappyBee, and it really is a fun one.
Curvy Wallet Back

I wish I could tell you she's perfect, but I am really not super skilled in hand sewing bias binding on ANYTHING.  Seriously . . . it's like my Sewing Achilles Heel.
Curvy Walle tInside

I don't believe, however, that takes anything away from the fun of this lil gal.  She boasts 3 card pockets and a zippered coin pouch with a velcro closure.  She may be just a wallet, but she packs a cuteness punch.  :)
Curvy Walle tInside - Detail

Want to win?  SUPER EASY.  Just leave me a comment telling me if you'd keep 'er or give her away.  (Just cause I'm nosy, LOL!)

I told you it was simple.  Yes, leave a comment and this non-manicured hand could be yours:
This Hand Could Be Yours!

Oy.  I really need to stop biting my nails.

Oh . . . and in case you glossed over all my jibber jabber and just want the low-down here's how you enter:
  • Leave a comment on this post telling me whether you'd keep this little darlin' for yourself or if not, who you would give it to.   (Don't forget to leave your email address in your comment so I can get back to you if you've won!)

Oh, and if you're a follower or become one let me know that in your comment too so I can say "Hi!"  :)  (This doesn't gain you extra entries, but I do love to hear from my readers!)


I'll pick a winner on May 25th (Wednesday) so if you're here now DON'T WAIT!  You've only got a few days to enter.  Please be fair as there is only ONE entry per person.  If you mess up and need to leave another comment, please delete your first one.  (International friends: I welcome you to enter too!)

With the understanding that there is no obligation to do any of the following, I would still love it if you'd bookmark me, follow me on Twitter, become my friend on Flickr, or consider subscribing to my blog and come back for a visit sometime!  It'd be sweet to have you as part of the creative community at Skooks' Playground.  :)

Ok, now off with you!  You've got plenty more great prizes to win.

You do know that's what I'm doing right now, right?  ;)

Good luck!  And may the gods smile upon you.

Jane @ The Borrowed Abode May 23, 2011 at 11:49 AM  

Hey! This wallet is precious - nice job! I just hopped over to find you on Flickr. :)
Thanks for commenting on my blog so that I could find your blog! :)

At first I was totally thinking of keeping it for memememe!!! Then I thought of my Mom and how she is forever misplacing her wallet. Its light tan and blends in with everything. I don't believe she would have trouble finding a bright pretty floral.

Great job Skooks and thanks for the giveaway.

blessings, jilly

I love the shape of this cute little wallet and you are absolutely right about two things(well actually more just two that I want to bring up) Bias can be extremely difficult. 1.)After all my years of sewing there are still days where I just put it down and walk away until the next day. and 2.) SMS Giveaway is definitely EPIC!!! 8-)
