How 'bout a giveaway?

Life seems to have gotten the better of me! I was hoping to do a giveaway each month this year, but April was a whirlwind with packing and moving. Addy and I ended the month in Illinois, and then drove to Milwaukee, WI to spend a few days with a good friend. Soon we were off to Arizona, where the weather was CRAZY hot. Matt met up with us in Pheonix for my step-brother's wedding and a few days with my family. Then we flew on to Seattle, where the unpacking began!
We are all settled in, and we've even started to paint a few rooms. My sewing time was consumed with quilting a few t-shirt quilts that my mom and I were commissioned to make. Once I finished those, I started on some house stuff. Hopefully I will have some pics of the house projects soon. I'd like to have a few projects finished up in the next few days!
So, about that giveaway!
I've got 2 camera straps up for grabs. Both are made from Amy Butler prints with a layer of batting for extra comfort. I made these to fit a standard dSLR strap, measurements are 2" wide by 24" long. My aunt also tells me that they work great slipped over the strap of a camera bag, too. ;)
As usual, the winner will receive BOTH straps. You choose which one to keep, and which one to "pay it forward"!

To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment. Feel free to let me know what you think of these giveaways. If you have any suggestions or ideas, I'd love to hear them! Or just share whatever is on your mind. What's inspiring you right now? What fabric line is begging to live in your stash (ehem, 1001 peeps, anyone???)?
Giveaway ends some time Tuesday, June 14.
Good luck!

The giveaway has ended. Thanks to all who participated!

Oh I love these. And that one is to Pay it Forward. I'm learning all of my inspirations from others in my many a bee I'm in. It's helping for sure.

Love the camera straps! I just got a new DSLR camera and was thinking I needed something more fun on the strap.

I'm making a baby quilt at the moment - found a great panel in my LQS and I'm putting borders around it to bring it up to size.
Gorgeous straps!

Those are adorable camera straps! What's on my mind now? Trying to settle the details of what I'm going to ask everyone to do for me for the July do. Good Stitches! Everyone does such cute things I"m feeling pressure to live up to it! ;)

How cute are those?? What a great giveaway! I'm currently working on a junk food fabric quilt for my daughter's 10th b-day next month and some placemats and napkins (lobster theme-fun) for a friend here at work. Jenn

Love these camera straps - much nicer than boring black!

Mary said...

These look beautiful! I just attempted to make my own and failed so I'd love to win one. Thanks!

I was just looking at camera straps the other night on an Etsy shop. I'd love to win yours! I never thought of having a strap for the camera bag itself. Looks like fun to have a colorful strap.

I tried to leave a comment yesterday and it is not working for me, so here it is again.
I get all giddy when I see a new post on your blog. I love to see all of your creations. You made it even better with a giveaway. I love Amy Butler prints. It would look great with my bag! ;)

I've seen a tutorial for these, but have never gotten around to making them. You have included some pretty fabric combinations! I'd have a hard time choosing. :)

Sarah said...
