freebie time :: August 2009

I'm so excited about this freebie!
August's freebie gives you the chance to win a brand new made-by-me item...I came up with the idea a few weeks ago ... a new storage item to hang from a hook or a door knob, or even off a pin board...(I was inspired by all the hours sitting looking at my Ikea hanging rails!!)

...as with all new ideas it took a few trial attempts and a pile of 'not quite rights' but finally the prototypes led to a design I'm (more than) happy with :-)
I used strong interfacing to make them sturdy
and they hold lots of goodies!
Ta DAAA! :: Felt Wall Pockets.
SO ... now for the freebie part.....
I am offering one prize this month.
The winner can decide which design they would like, Monkey, Giraffe, or Flower.
... and I will include a selection of crafty goodies to fill the Wall Pocket with :-)
TO ENTER :: simply leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner at random.
I will post world wide and will announce a winner on Monday 10th August
GOOD LUCK

They are soooo cute i like them very, much my little boy(one year old)likes too he is pointing the monkey with his little fingers. İ believe his luck...:))

Orjana said...

I laughed when you wrote that these are good for hanging on door knobs, because there is not one free door knob in my house, it's like extra storage! These bags are definitely a good idea! I love the pink and blue colour combo of the flower bag, such happy colours!

flurogoddess said...

Oooh they are VERY cute! And the announcement date is my last day in paid employment! Nice!

Anonymous said...

I love them! Bright, cute and useful!! A great combination. It's a economic way to hang items from your rails or other items like door knobs and even cuter than shop brought. You are very creative!
