Too cute--and thanks for cluing me in on the year of the bunnie! I'm in Raleigh, NC and though a terrible joke teller (punch line forgetfulness, get the picture) I love to laugh with others who don't have those problems! I'd love a chance to win, thanks.

Sue said...

Hello Jane,

I have been reading your blog for a while as I am a regular reader of your husband's blog too and found the link there.

I love his articles and your bags - his are witty and yours are lovely.

Yes, I am a Singaporean based in Sydney and I heart all things Singaporean - it makes me feel closer to home.

I hope to visit your booth when I get back in December. Meanwhile, keep making more beautiful bags!

PS: My husband's a rabbit & I am a dragon, so I "gobble" him up most of the time!

okiedokie said...

Love your blog and tutorials. Would love to win your rabbit pouch.

Bethany said...

This would be nifty to win! In high school, there were many Chinese students in the science track with me. One year they took a bunch of paper money envelopes and hung them from the ceiling--when you opened the door in that wing they fluttered like a big red wave. I was a little sad afterwards when they had to take them down...

SewLindaAnn said...

I've been reading a lot about the "Year of the Rabbit" - I'm in Roswell, Georgia, USA and so happy that we've had a beautiful spring-like day today and will be warmer tomorrow! I was happy we actually had a "blizzard (for the South" that kept us inside for almost a week. Your block looks neat, I'm off to check it out.

Blu said...

That's such a cute pouch!
I have all of your tutorials bookmarked for awhile and finally worked up the courage to try the boxy pouch a while ago. Since I was trying for something way out of my league it didn't go too well.
I think the next one I'll try is the felt pin one. No sewing machine involved!

Hi Jane! I am a new follower from South Carolina...this was a nice thing to find on Brenda's Rusty Thimble blog...I am trying to unwind from an day that started at 4:45 of getting up, getting me and two kids ready for school (I'm a teacher) having early morning bus duty, school all day, parent conferences until 7, and then a 2 1/2 hour dance rehearsal at our local community theatre for the show I am in!

CheriArt said...

Oh wow, thank you so much for inviting me to participate!! It's adorable!!! : ) I love that the bunny is coming in style. They are so cute! I'm from Buford, Ga. My email address is

Christie @ A Lemon Squeezy Home said...

Jane, this is adorable and I'd of course love to win it! Thank you for keeping me posted on this and for thinking of me:). I'm in Utah. Wish I could ever remember a joke when someone asks, but I'm can't! Have a great weekend!

shirlthegirl said...

Hi Jane, what a great giveaway! I think if I was to win it , it would bring me good luck.I read your blog every morning before work. I create the pink part in a set of dentures for a living!!!thought that would make you smile (or freak you out!)I love to sew in my spare time and would love to do it all day. just need some Luck?

Yadira said...

Hi Jane,

I commented earlier on your fb page. I'm from Puerto Rico and I'm currently trying to make a living from my crafts. I have an Etsy shop and a fb profile that feature my work (let me know if you are interested to see it so I can give you links). The main techniques I use are crochet and sewing and I found your blog while I was looking for a tutorial (I think it was the recessed zipper, I actually made a purse using it). I check it almost every day to see if there is anything new. I love to hear from other people coutries through their own voices and their everyday experiences. It's really nice to finally post something here and at the same time be able to enter for your giveaway. Thank you for the chance.

Wow! Lovely! Thank you for letting me know!
A man finds a penguin in the street. he asks a policeman what to do with it... The policeman says: "I don't know. I guess you could take it to the zoo". The next day, the policeman sees the the guy with the penguin again. "So, I thought, you'd take it to the zoo?" "Oh, I did! And he loved it, thank you! We're going to the cinema now"

Vik said...

Hi Jane

Have really enjoyed reading through the comments and seeing where everyone is from....I am from Melbourne :)

I also just read your profile and that you hate exposed seams LOL. Well, not only 10 minutes ago I was overlocking (serging!) a seam that was one part gathered fabric with lots of loose ends and frays and as I was sewing I was thinking how beautiful and neat and tidy the overlocker makes everything. Sad huh. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jane, conratulations on the followers ~ I would have joined you on Facebook too but I don't 'do' Facebook thanks to a crazy man who was a pest on there a few years ago I had to delete my profile! Anyway please add me in, here is one of my favourite jokes:
Q: What's brown and sticky?
A: A Stick.

Hi Jane,

Love your sewing, so inspirational, you make bag making look nice and easy.
Good luck everyone on Jane's giveaway :)

Sarah@PingsAndNeedles said...

Hi Jane, as you know, I love your blog - I especially love that sometimes you're kind of grumpy about stuff, so refreshing!

Here in Brighton the air is frosty and bone-chillingly cold, but I don't mind, I'm tucked up nice and warm in my sitting room, about to start a bit of weekend sewing ... bliss!

I love your little rabbit pouches and I'd be jolly pleased to win one!

Speckled Hen said...

Dear Jane,

Reading your creative, informative and humorous blog..
is much more than drooling over your heavenly bag...
It's my daily read!

So I shall combat the winter blue..
when your rabbit jumps ove the morning dew...
and becomes alive with a lucky hue...
Oh please Jane makes my dream come true.....

Yours truly speckled Hen from the U.K...

I'm from the island of Newfoundland, Canada, now living in Toronto, Canada.
I've bookmarked your site to have a good look later with a cup of tea. relaxing.
Oh, come visit my site for my giveaway too!

tamdoll said...

Hi Jane! Since you're curious to know where we're from... well, I think I've mentioned I'm living in New Hampshire now, but I lived in New York until I was 25. I went from city to country and it was almost traumatic to me. From walking & mass transportation to having to drive everywhere. Pigeons in the street to deer and moose in my backyard. It's been 15 years and I've finally gotten used to it!

antmee said...

I would love, love, love to win this pouch! I have admired these simple yet wonderfully made pouches for awhile now.

Shellie said...

beautiful!! :) what a great giveaway Jane - thanks for letting me know! best of luck!

NotYetTheDodo2 said...

Hi there! I'm from Denmark and have made a few of your pouches... and I will make one more this evening :-)! Thanks for your tutorials and for the giveaway!

Carol said...

Thank you so much for the invite Jane, I would love to be entered for a chance to win your Lucky Red Rabbit Pouch!

I'm not at all experienced with machine sewing and would love to be able to make some lovely bags and pouches like you have. My husband Colin bought me a Bernina for my 50th birthday just over a year ago - I really must use it more often and build up my confidence to make some nice things! I think it would help if I had somewhere permanent to keep it out. I dream of one day having my own needlecraft room! :o)

Ellen S said...

Love this pouch!! would love to be entered in your giveaway!!!
