THE WINNER IS:
Kreated by Karen is an amazing bag shop on Etsy. Karen is from Indiana and has had her shop on Etsy for almost 1 year now. I love bags, and there are some really beautiful ones in this shop!! Karen also has a really great blog that she updates on a regular basis: Chat Bug Karen at Winding Threads. Why don't we learn a little about Karen before we announce the Give Away Prize.
I began sewing as a teenager. I made those simple peasant style tops that had elastic around the neckline and sleeves. From there I have gone on to make quilts. My mom has made quilts since the days before rotary cutters. I have always admired her quilts and one day decided to make one myself. Little did I know, I chose the hardest pattern possible. It had teeny tiny squares! Thank goodness, it was a small table runner and not a bed quilt or I may have thrown in the towel right then and there.
My husband and I have owned a floor covering store in Indiana for over 30 years. I run the store which is connected to our home. I am lucky that I can walk out my kitchen door into our business. Since our two children no longer live at home, I spend my free time sewing.
My two sisters live in other states, Kentucky and Texas, and we all like to sew. We decided to make purses and bags and get together at flea markets and craft shows when possible and sell our creations. We have only managed one show! Needing a venue to sell my bags, I turned to Etsy. I have not settled on one type of bag and each one I make turns out to be a favorite until I make the next one!
