Perfect Padfolio Pattern Giveaway

This weekend I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for the amazingly talented Rachael, at Imagine Gnats! Have you seen her latest tutorial, this adorable felt needle case?  If you aren't already following her, you are missing out.

Padfolio Interior

 Her new pattern for Craftsy is the Perfect Padfolio and it sure lives up to its name!  I gave it a whirl this weekend and loved making it.   I used some linen Echino from my stash, and because she needed the pattern review quickly, various interfacing I had on hand.  So it is probably not quite as sturdy as it should be, but it totally works.

It makes the perfect gift, especially for the hard to shop for men in your life, but I'm keeping this one for myself!  Look how perfect it is to take to Quiltcon with my sketchbook (love that strip of elastic to hold everything together), pen, business cards and room to add anything I acquire there.


Rachael has generously offered a copy of her new pattern to one of my readers!  Just leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Thursday.  And remember, if you don't win you can just purchase it here.

Best of luck! xo,  Courtney
