Giveaway Day craziness!

Are you guys in on the action over at Sew Mama Sew? Holy cow! This is only the second time I've tried my hand at winning something.. This spring was a no -go. Let me just say that this time around the set up is much better, more like a linky party. You can even see little thumbnails of what is being given away! Sweet, right? I'm not sure how many I've entered.. I'm trying to only enter ones that I really would like to win and not just doing them all.. I can't handle them all!!
I have made a few things but they were gifts that I didn't take pictures of .. The first one was a pillowcase. I made it burrito style. Do you guys know about this method? You basically sew the body (main) fabric of the pillow case up inside the cuff (contrasting) fabric and then when you pull it out the cuff is totally finished on both sides. I thought it was the neatest thing. I don't have a pic of the case but these are the fabrics I used.

Yep, another after dark in the dining room pic.. These are the fabrics I scored on the cheap at Joann's :)
The other project I worked on was another ornament (yes, I'm obsessed) this time it's a tree made with glittery felt. I didn't even know they made felt with glitter in it! This is the practice one I made. I made another one and gave it to my sister. I "decorated" hers with french knots and the ribbon sticks out the bottom with a bead on it.
I made it using this tutorial. It is one I put in my last post. I think I need to be done making ornaments. I need to get to making the gifts. I am going to make a camera case for my nephew so I'd like to start that. I think I mentioned that I won a $25 credit to As Hue Wish on Etsy..  I ordered up my stuff on Sunday and Pamela shipped them out right away on Monday, so USPS says my package should be here tomorrow so I'll blog about that when I get it :) That's all for now! Happy hump day tomorrow!

The pillow case is awesome! It makes me smile every time I see it on O's bed. I didn't know you won a credit to Etsy! That's awesome!
