My Little July Surprise

Hey there,

Today I took a break from working on my ePattern and went to see The Dark Knight Rises. You need to pay a lot of attention to the storyline so no dozing is possible. Not a bad movie although the first third was a little too slow for me. Plus I don't remember the story from Part I and Part II. If you've seen the movie, do you agree with me that the Bat "motor cycle" is way cooler than the Bat "car"?

When I reached home, I immediately started work on THIS.

It's just ONE lunchtime pouch but you get to see 5 different views.

The exterior is constructed using MoMo's It's a Hoot fabric. Just a few pieces of fabric patched together. The lining is my medium size polka dots and for the bottoms, I used the weird green cotton  drill.

You like it? 
You want it? 
Come and get it.

Yes. This little lunchtime pouch is my July Giveaway. I will fold it up, wrap it up, seal it in an envelope and mail it to 1 lucky winner.

Just in case you're wondering, if I were a superhero, I would want to be able to FLY. Except I don't know how my height phobia would fit in. Just imagine me flying up, up and ....nausea, fear, crying...
You get the idea. Well, at least it's not my biggest worry in the world.

p.s. if you wish to make a lunchtime pouch, you could learn how by buying my ePattern here. (patchwork instructions are not included)

Good luck.

My superpower would be the ability to time travel travelling back and forth winning lotteries and messing with history.

I would like to teletransport- think where I want to be and then just arrive. That would eliminate the being up high of flying- don't you think? I love the bird on the bag. So cute!

Thanks for hosting the giveaway Jane!
I discovered your blog a few month back and this is my first time commenting.

My superpower would be teleportation, because sometimes i really like to just be somewhere else.

Easy! I would love, love, love to be able to fly! I can't think of anything more wonderful!
Great bag by the way!

Miranda said...

Super cute pouch! Love the birds and the grey polka dots! Patchwork was a great idea! If I was a superhero I think I would want a nose like the chick from Bewitched. She just wiggles her nose and stuff happens. Housework, wiggle wiggle done. Dishes, wiggle, wiggle done. I don't know if that would be a super power but it seems pretty powerful to me :) Thanks for a great giveaway!

Kandi said...

Oh I would love invisibilty! Imagine having a nosey round peoples houses and going places you are normally not allowed!
I have prepared a blog post for tomorrow and I'll blog about your giveaway then, I love your pouch! x

Gigi said...

If I had a choice of superpowers, I would love to be able to read minds. That, to me, is the coolest super power!!! I love the lunch bag, very cute!!!

Suzee said...

I would like to have a superpower that can straighten my son's head out and make him think sensible! lol

Suzee said...

ByNightCreations said...

How sweet of you! the pouch is so cute :-)
I think I'd go for invisibility... or cloning - if that is a super hero power. My clone would be doing all the boring tasks: work, household... and I'd be creating all the time ;-)

Dee said...

Thanks for the giveaway, Jane. The bag is cute.

I have always wanted to FLY. I have often dreamt that I could fly. When threatened or scared I could just jump into the air and be above the threat, I could hover over a house or tree and look down on all the activities and be silently sitting there. I could fly up to the top of a tree to snooze in the tree top or get to where ever I wanted to go easily. I would always be able to see what was going on at an event or show and there would be no crowds. sigh. Lovely.

anna said...

If I was a super hero I would like to be in two places at once! Thank you for the chance of winning your giveaway.

UniqueGrabs said...

Definitely, I wanna be invisible... doing all sorts of funny things that I want to without people knowing it. haha...

I love reading your blog posts... very entertaining... you are such a good writer.

Hi Jane!
I love your blog, and looking at your great bags.
I am torn between wanting to fly and teleportation. I think it would be neat to fly, to be able to see all the things below you. What a great way to tour the world. But teleportation would be so fast, I could pop over to Singapore for lunch and be home in time for dinner, how cool would that be? So in the end I guess I would have to say teleportation. I am not a patient person so speed wins out.

chrissie said...

I would like to be able to time travel. I could go back in time and rectify all the mistakes that I have made!

I would love to a genius, flying, millionaire...basically a female Ironman! But with a groovy blue and silver suit...somehow working polka dots in :-). I don't want much :-p

Little Blue Mouse said...

I hadn't noticed you had an entourage, I am impressed!

If I had a superpower it would be to make the weather how I wanted it.

punkychewster said...

My super hero power would be the gift being able to speak/read/understand every language. That way wherever I go, I'd be able to talk to and meet new people.

How about the power to sober people up in a hurry! That would be very helpful at times!

"Abracadabra! your now sober"!

Unfortunately I wouldn't be a party hero but a party pooper! lol

Love your pouch!

Chris H said...

I don't want a super power as such, what I would like is to be able to speak/read/understand EVERY language in the world! Weird I know.
