Today is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! I am very excited to be participating... I will be giving away a zippered pouch and a zippered coin purse. I made the pouch with my pleated pouch tutorial, but I made it a bit bigger - it measures approximately 8"x7"- and the coin purse is about 4"x3.5".
Both the pouch and the coin purse have green fabrics on the inside as you can see below.
There are a lot of giveaways going on today so I am not going to ask you to jump through a lot of hoops - just leave a comment below and for fun, tell me what your favorite holiday cookie is (to make or to eat!). No more than one comment per person, please; international entries are allowed. Please be sure that I can contact you through your profile or your blog - or put your email address in your comment. The giveaway will close on Friday 12/17. While you are not required to become a follower or anything to enter, I hope you will look around the blog and come back if you like what you see!
--GIVEAWAY CLOSED!! THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED :) --

My favorite holiday cookie just might be what my mom calls "camel cookies." Way back when my father was the only vegetarian anyone he knew had ever met, she figure out a way to make spritz cookies without eggs, and made them in the shape of camels. I have no idea why camels. She is not into irony. At any rate, those might be my faves. Really, though, I am not terribly picky in the cookie department.ReplyDelete
And your bags are really pretty.
Yummy combinations of prints! I like what you do with the various fabrics.ReplyDelete
These a super cute, love it! My favorite cookie is peanut butter kisses. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I love those chocolate cookies that are rolled in powdered sugar and then get all crackley. Mmmm....ReplyDelete
And gingerbread cookies and cake.
Favorite cookie to make: Reese-a-ma-jig:ReplyDelete
-peanut butter cookie dough - mixed as direced (or from the tube)
-mini reese's cups "peeled" from their paper
-mini muffin tin
roll about 1 inch balls of cookie dough, drop into mini muffin tin. Bake as directed. (make sure your reese's are ready to go!) Once cookies are baked, remove from oven and immediately push in the reese's. Place peanut M&M on top. Once cooled, remove from muffin tin.
These are HUGE hit among children and coworkers.
