    The lure of one of your wallets is enough to drag me out of lurkdome. 🙂 I always enjoy purusing your blog. I’ve been thinking about sewing a wallet of my own for…oh 6 months. Obviously it’s not going to happen any time soon. Pick Me! Pick Me!

  2. 2 Misty May 10, 2008 at 8:20 am

    ohhh I love your wallets, I don’t really have a favorite color, can i still win?

  3. 3 Terrie May 10, 2008 at 8:39 am

    I always love looking at the creations you post at HF Katie.
    I think the round neck tops are adorable!…and congrats on your wonderful Mother’s Day present.

    Favorite color, hmmmm pinks (various shades) or ocean colors…:-)

    Have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  4. 4 Mary May 10, 2008 at 8:43 am

    Congrats on the 100th post milestone! One of these days I’ll get around to using your tute to sew one, but if I win, I’d love any of ’em you make — you are so great with the colors and patterns.

  5. 5 dangermom May 10, 2008 at 8:47 am

    Oh, congratulations! Um, my favorite color is blue. Or green. That pink wallet in the picture is so cute!

  6. 6 laura May 10, 2008 at 8:52 am

    oooh that vibrant pink with flowers is saucy! Is it unfair to put myself in the running for a wallet if I bought one from you already?

  7. 7 Jackie May 10, 2008 at 9:08 am

    congrats on your 100th post, your wallets are beautiful, so are those round neck tops!! my fave color is green if I get lucky:)

  8. 8 dangitAnge May 10, 2008 at 9:14 am

    Orange and red!! Pick me pick me pick me!

  9. 9 Steffi May 10, 2008 at 9:46 am

    Hi, I love your blog. Confession – I am one of those who admire you silently and don’t post, but how could I resist the chance of a gorgeous wallet, so here I am. My favourite colour is blue, all shades of blue, light, sky, dark, navy, turquoise etc etc. x

  10. 10 Betsy May 10, 2008 at 9:50 am

    Such cute wallets! My favorite colors are orange and red (not necessarily together, but they can be!).

  11. 11 Tricia May 10, 2008 at 9:54 am

    Congrats on the 100th post!! My fav color is pink! Have a great Mother’s Day!

  12. 12 floribunda May 10, 2008 at 10:11 am

    Happy 100! I think red is my favorite color today — and easy to spot in the depths of a messy purse!

  13. 13 Rachael May 10, 2008 at 11:11 am

    I enjoy your sns on sewingmamas and thought I’d check out your blog too.
    Of course the wallet had nothing to do with it…:^D

  14. 14 Tracey May 10, 2008 at 11:17 am

    WTG on your 100th posts. I already own one of your wallets and matching purse, I LOVE them both so much and get tons of compliments on them. I don’t feel I should win, but I wanted to comment anyway.

  15. 15 Marie May 10, 2008 at 11:20 am

    Ooooo – I’d love one of those wallets. I’ve printed the pattern but haven’t gotten around to one yet (typical!).

    My fave colour is purple, purple and more purple….. or did you mean my fave coloured wallet?? I like the black and white one (goes with anything ;)).


  16. 16 StarkatBeads May 10, 2008 at 11:41 am

    Congratulations 🙂

    I invite you visit my blog and leave a coment too 🙂 Great work you do!

    If you visit it you’ll fast figure out my favorite color… 🙂

    Such beautiful work! Love all your creations….

  18. 18 Vanessa May 10, 2008 at 12:32 pm

    Congrats on the 100th post! The wallets, new tops and summer wardrobe look great. I wish I could be even half as creative as you are!!

    I don’t really have a favorite colour but I don’t like peach 🙂 I will quote my dear daughter when I asked her “my favorite colour is…rainbow!!”.

  19. 19 Megan May 10, 2008 at 12:36 pm

  24. 24 Lisa May 10, 2008 at 3:07 pm

    OH I want to win one! I tried to make one, but lost steam somewhere around the first snap part. My favorite color is probably teal of some sort, but there’s not much I don’t like!

  25. 25 Debbie May 10, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Favorite color is Red 🙂

  47. 47 Gina May 11, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    Long-time admirer of your stuff from afar but never brave enough to post! Your quilted wallet tutorial was one of the first things I read when I stumbled into crafty-blog-land 6 months ago as a complete craft novice. I’ve been oggling your stuff since. Keep up the inspiration, and congratulations on 100 posts!
    PS I love all colours that give out a retro vibe.

  48. 48 Tanya Bader May 11, 2008 at 3:38 pm

    Making one of your wallets is still on my list of things to do! Pick me so I can cross it off .. well .. SORT of! My favorite color is PINK. 🙂

  49. 49 Tessy May 11, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    I am another lurker peeking out to win.

    Hi! Yes, you caught me – I don’t comment 😦 But wait! I bought the cat backpack from your Etsy shop! You make the cutest stuff!

    I love pinks and Amy Butler type stuff…but I love the look of your wallets so I’ll be happy with whatever!!!

    Congrats on 100!!!!

  52. 52 Carol-Ann May 11, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    I have never been a pink girl but ever since I found out I was pregnant, 15 years after my son was born, I suddenly started liking pink. I bought pink maternity shirts. I never wore pink shirts before. I think I willed the baby to be a girl. Sure enough she was and it is amazing how fast the house filled up with pink girly things. To top it all off, the tester top we bought from you has beautiful pink in it.

  53. 53 sugarbug May 11, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    I love your wallets! I have actually made a couple of them, but they went out as gifts, so I don’t have one for myself!! My favorite color is either red or brown. I can’t decide. You can decide for me! 🙂

    Congratulations on your 100th post. Tomorrow is actually my one year blogiversary. I will be having a giveaway of my own, so please stop by! Oh, and I have serious Kitchen aid envy- I have the classic one and it is sad. Happy Mother’s Day!

  54. 54 Kathy May 12, 2008 at 6:41 am

    Oh, how – the chance to win one of your wallets…..I’ll definitely come out and post. LOL! I enjoy reading your blog to see what you have been up to. You are a very talented lady. I envy you.

    As for my favorite color, I’d have to choose pink, but I love blues and greens, too. Even purple. So yeah, pretty much anything! LOL!

    Good luck w/ everything!

  55. 55 tina May 12, 2008 at 7:21 am

  59. 59 beth May 12, 2008 at 10:26 am

    I love your blog, and have made one wallet as a gift (forgot to take picture!)

    I think Red is my fave!

  60. 60 Alisa May 12, 2008 at 10:44 am

    Congratulations – 100 fun posts!

    I love your blog and read it fairly regularly. I’ve bought your purse pattern and love it, I plan to make another soon. And I’m just about to buy the shirt pattern. I was going to earlier, but you were gone rafting (I’m hoping to go this summer for my first time!!)

    Favourite colour… that is hard. I think red would top them all (right now.)

  61. 61 claudia May 12, 2008 at 10:48 am

    I’m one of those that rarely comment but I’m always reading your blog. Congrats on the 100th post and I would love to participate in your giveaway. My absolute favorite colour is green but pink comes in a close second. 😀

  62. 62 Kelli May 12, 2008 at 11:09 am

    Hi Katie! My favorite color is black. 🙂

  63. 63 heidi May 12, 2008 at 11:24 am

    my favorite color is …..purple….but i wear black and white all the time….go figure that one out
    congrats and keep up the great blog!!!!!

  64. 64 littlelovebug May 12, 2008 at 11:33 am

    another lurker here… I’ve been wanting to make that wallet since I first saw it, but, well… And I am having tons of fun with your round neck top pattern! Thank You!!

    Favorite color? Looking in my closet, I’d have to say blues. 🙂

  65. 65 Roslyn May 12, 2008 at 11:42 am


    Happy 100th and happy Mothers day! Loved the mixer! I am definitely one of those who lurk all the time and never comment. The lure of one of you wallets was too much to stay away. my favourite colour is red/burnt orange.


  66. 66 Scottie May 12, 2008 at 12:02 pm

    I’m sorry, i do read your blog daily and haven’t left a comment. I love your sewing projects. You are really talented!! Oh, and my favorite color….ORANGE!!

  67. 67 Becca May 12, 2008 at 2:19 pm

  68. 68 Karen May 12, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    Wow, that is a lot of comments!

  69. 69 mikawendy May 12, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    Congratulations on your 100th post!

    My favorite color is plum (dark reddish purple), but I’m also very partial to teal, and (lately, in things I sew), lime green, pink, and tangerine.

  70. 70 Katie May 12, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    You have such great ideas on this website. If I don’t win, I’ll be making a wallet myself. My favorite color is a nice bright red, although teal/blue is a close second.

  71. 71 Susan May 12, 2008 at 5:42 pm

    Too hard to pick a favorite – I love pink, green, brown, blue…
    Congrats on the 100th post!

  72. 72 Shelby May 12, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    I love your wallets and have been eyeing them for awhile! I love them all but the black and white one draws my eye!

  73. 73 sandy May 12, 2008 at 6:48 pm

    oh dear lurkdom was so warm and toasty. My favorite color is red, 2nd favorite is everything else.

  74. 75 Jaclyn May 12, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    I love reading your blog…found you through GR. 🙂 Congrats on your 100th post.

    My favorite color would be pink.

  75. 76 lisa May 12, 2008 at 9:11 pm

  79. 80 Jessica May 13, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Wow-100 posts is awesome! Congratulations.

    I don’t know if I can choose just 1 color. I am more into color combos!
    Brown and green, brown and blue. I love sage green too. too many beautiful colors out there to choose just 1!

  80. 81 rachel May 13, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    Your sewing/photography here is so crisp and clean. I’m always drawn here for sewing inspiration. I followed your wallet tutorial this past year for Christmas gifts. I could not stop at one. I just recently purchased a purse pattern from you and love it! My favorite color is probably rust-anything earthy, really. Congrats on your 100th post!

  81. 82 Gipsieee May 13, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    How generous of you to host this drawing. I love your patterns and pictures.
    My favorite colors are blue and green.

  82. 83 Lovingcjm May 13, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    Oh pick me, pick me! My favorite color is yellow! How exciting!

  83. 84 Victoria May 13, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    How fun! My favorite color is green, any and all shades!

  84. 85 Sally May 13, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    Yay! I LOVE your wallets – that’s actually how I found your blog in the first place. I made one right away and am LOVING it! But it was made in fall colors and I was just thinking that I needed a new one! 🙂

  85. 86 Christy May 13, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    Happy 100!!! My favorite color is purple.

  86. 87 diannaleigh May 14, 2008 at 6:30 am

    Yay! 🙂 Congrats!!!! My favorite colors are earth tones with brown being my fave! 🙂

  87. 88 Amy May 14, 2008 at 6:40 am

    As a fairly new sewer I was so excited to have stumbled across your quilted wallet tutorial. I’m a visual learner and between your clearly written instructions and the great pictures, I am confident I can make myself a wallet. Of course I want to win one of your creations too! A girl can’t have too many wallets! Of course, I spend all my money now on fabric and notions, but a beautiful empty wallet is better than an ugly full one.
    Pick me!

  88. 89 dawn May 14, 2008 at 7:11 am

    I like all shades of blue. Love your wallets, your round neck top pattern and your blog. Congrats on 100!

  89. 90 Amy May 14, 2008 at 7:40 am

    Oh my! I forgot to tell you my favorite color. I love soft blues.
    Please pick me. Your blog is the ONLY blog I’ve EVER commented on. 🙂


  90. 91 Ramie's Mama May 14, 2008 at 8:17 am

    We have one of these wallets–I get so many compliments. Would LOVE to see a pattern tweak w/ an enclosed spot for change!
    My favorite color is pink. Pink, pink, pink, pink, pink…and brown 😉

  91. 92 silverthimble May 14, 2008 at 9:05 am

    As several before me have said, the lure of winning one of your wallets is enough to bring me out from the shadows and comment. I read your blog on a regular basis but sadly rarely comment. I love your work. You have asked for a favorite colour–mine is green. I think of green as being a neutral. Just look at nature–green everywhere and it goes with absolutely everything!

  92. 93 Lisa May 14, 2008 at 10:17 am

    Ooo! How cool, Kat! I LOVE turquoise and brown, and pistachio and brown combos. I also love black. 🙂 Your stuff is so beautiful. I wish I had half your talent….

  93. 94 Jenny May 14, 2008 at 11:46 am

    Congrats on your 100th post. I like pinks or black/white!

  94. 95 Rebecca May 14, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    Yea!!! I love generously shared patterns. Thank you for sharing and I’m so glad to have found your site and your wallet pattern. I’m new to sewing and am loving it. My favorite colors are browns paired with blues.

  95. 96 Monica May 14, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    Guilty: I read your blog everyday and never comment. Somehow it doesn’t work for me. So this is sort of a test.

    Love your site! Fav color: any shade of blue


  96. 97 Miss Sassy May 14, 2008 at 7:09 pm

    OH, I need a new wallet. Green, green, green. I kind of like purple, too. But my world is a happy greendom. Have a great day and congratulations on your 100th post!

  97. 98 Rebecca May 15, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    I love your wallets – I’ve had the tutorial saved in my favorites forever and hope to make one someday but winning one would be even better!

  98. 99 allison May 15, 2008 at 2:37 pm

    Congrats! Green is my favorite right now.

  99. 100 Carrie May 15, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    Pick me, pleeeeeeease
    I love your wallets and would love to make one for myself. My favorite colors are bright bold colors of the caribbean.
    Thanks for the giveaway chance

  100. 101 Amber May 15, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    What a great giveaway. Hmm, favorite color? I’m very fond of pink! I love your patterns – just ordered a couple from your etsy store – your blog is great!

  101. 102 Chris May 16, 2008 at 9:35 am

    Hi. I’m a new sewer and linked over from Sew Mama Sew. I love your creativity and it has really sparked so many ideas. I’m in love with your pattern for the girls top — I have a 4 month old girl and can envision this dress/top as a staple of her wardrobe. Thank you!

    Oh, my favorite color is red. Red and blue is probably one of my favorite color combinations ever. And orange is high up there too.

  102. 103 Susan May 16, 2008 at 11:32 am

    OOh, ooh, super cute! Count me in 🙂

  103. 104 Wendy May 16, 2008 at 4:20 pm

  110. 111 JANE April 1, 2009 at 10:39 am

    I love pink and reds. I was looking for wallet patterns yesterday and found your site. I LOVE the wallet! I am a teachers assistant and don’t have a lot of time to sew. Need something easy to make. Most of the time if I see it and I can make it. I would love to have one of yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!
