Zipper Bag and Fabric

How do you feel about glitter? I am NOT a fan of it.  I got a half yard fabric that I really liked - until I saw that it has glitter on it. You see, if  there is glitter anywhere in a 3 yard area, it will end up on my face. Why is that?   
So, what to do?  I thought I could use it to make gifts.  So I made this little zipper pouch. It is about 8 inches by 6 inches. 









I have glitter on the ironing board, my hands, in the carpet and ----yes, you guessed it ON my FACE.  Arrgh.  


What to do?


I know! A giveaway is in order.  If you would like to win this zipper bag AND the rest of the half yard of fabric.  Leave a comment. I will use the random number generator to pick a winner.  The comments close at midnight Central Time on Saturday and I will pick a winner at some time on Sunday. 


I edited to add "on Saturday" to the ending time. 
Also, I may not answer all the comments for this...but "Good luck to you all"

Well with three girls, glitter isn't something new over here! We'd love to take it off your hands :)

Donna said...

I have a soon to be 8 yr old niece who is learning to sew and loves glitter. I believe she would be very excited .... I, on the other hand, hate looking down to find my black skirt sparkling!

You and my DH. If there's glitter anywhere in the house it will land on his face - lol! I would love a chance to win your darling bag and remaining fabric. I could really make my DH sparkle :P

We have glitter here lots... with a 5 & 8yo girls in the house... at least there is now glitter glue for them to use, instead of loose glitter!!!

Don't throw my name into the hat. I'm in a glitter free zone over here. I just wanted to pop in and tell you that I think the bag is lovely and I'm envious of your skill with zippers! That's on my list of things to learn, for sure!

Pat said...

I can see that Tonya's tutorial really helped you master putting zippers into bags! Good job!

Petit Design Co. said...

I'm with ya! I hate that glitter gets everywhere. My daughter loves it though, she calls it sparklies. (no need to enter me in the giveaway as I'd probably be just as frustrated as you!)

Carla said...

Lisa Marie said...

This looks like just the thing for my niece. I never had a girl, so I do all my sparkly, glittery things for her!

I'm not a glitter/sparkle girl, but I have a niece who just loves it - especially if it gets on her face. Cute little clutch and extra fab would make great coin purse, make-up kit and key fob to match.

Barbara said...

Well, being a beader, I have to say I like all things that sparkle, so I'm in. The bag is really cute!

Lee said...

Although I am not a fan of glitter my nieces who I am teaching to sew are! They would love it and thank you - the bag is cute:)

Mimi said...

Here's a funny glitter story... my husband is a high school art teacher and he ordered glitter expecting only small 4 oz containers but what came in were more like large milk containers. We laughed in the office calling him "Glitter Boy" - he was not impressed with that!

Kathy H said...

We have 3 girls and glitter is always a favorite here. They love it when I make them something with glitter fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

Ellen said...

Thanks for the giveaway!

Heather said...

Cute little bag!! I am the same way. If there is glitter around it will be on my face too!!

Royce said...

Another bag - oh yes count me in. Glitter does have a life of it's own, and it will win - it also keeps showing up for days.

GerryART said...

well, Gene, I wasn't going to comment on your 'lovely' fabric. However, while at the cutting at JoAnn's yesterday there was a customer and employee battling so kind of fake fur fabric that was floating all over the place while being cut. It clung to their noses and hair they were batting like crazy.
You can guess who came to the front of my mind.
Yep, you and your glitter.

I am enjoying reading your blog.

Hugs

Mom Quilter said...

I love your bag. Looks like you mastered the zipper! I am a glitter attracter also. Jo Anna

Cassie said...

Cute bag. I also am not a fan of glitter, but I love it when my fabric glistens or glimmers, so I guess I will always make an exception with fabric. :)

I have four grandnieces and the eldest two are glitter fanatics. This would be a wonderful twirly skirt - and their mamas can handle the glitter! If win, I'll keep the bag. Take care Gene!
