First Official Giveaway!

GiveawayWhite

I’m holding my first official giveaway!

My gut reaction said that holding a giveaway when my blog is less than a year old seems a bit too soon, so this giveaway is actually a thank you to all of my DeviantArt people out there. While I’ve only been on WordPress for less than a year, I’ve been on DeviantArt for 9 years now! XD I’ve just broken 2,500 followers so I wanted to celebrate.

For that reason, I’m hosting the giveaway on Deviantart. So to find out the details and enter into the giveaway, you’ll need to go to the DeviantArt page (and create an account if you don’t have one already). I just wanted to give everyone who follows me here a chance to know about it ^-^

Good luck to all who enter!

Freebie Friday: The Totoro Bag

Prj010
Ah, yes! Finally I’m getting into some of the things that I love 😀 This, of course, is Totoro, the loveable fuzzy forest creature from the Ghibli children’s film, My Neighbor Totoro. It’s probably one of my favorite Miyazaki movies, and really epitomizes the fantasy and innocence of childhood I think.
I had some gray twill that I originally used to make another bag. And while I kept making much plainer bags out of my other stashes of gray fabric, it finally clicked in my head that Totoro is gray, and would make for a perfect oval-shaped bag! I thought it was especially kismet when I saw this scrap of green linen and thought it would be perfect for the little leaf on his head. The leaf serves as the bag’s closure, which has a metal snap on the inside to keep everything together.
In addition, it’s covered in appliqué to give the adorable Totoro face and body, it has handles shaped like his ears, and I even lined the inside with an awesome leaf print fabric. There are quite a few details to get through, but I definitely think it was worth it for this awesome look, so I hope you’ll try it!
