65 Present Perfect Blog Tour & Giveaway.

10.17.2014

Hi there! I'm excited to be a part of the Present Perfect blog tour today. It's a new book written by Betz White and published by Interweave/F+W. The book offers 25 projects, all items that are perfect for gift giving!

I decided to share my Coffee Cash Coin Pouch project, since I had already made one up to test the pattern for Betz. This pouch is so quick and simple to make!
It has a magnetic pouch frame inside, so there's no risk of all your change falling out. It was much easier to insert than I would've expected too, which makes me want to use more of these frames!
I used one of my favorite linen prints from Melody Miller's Ruby Star Shining collection for Kokka, along with some Chicopee, brown wool felt and some vintage lace trim. It was nice to be able to use up some precious scraps for once!
There are lots of cute projects throughout the book! Some I want to keep for myself, like the Sweet Life Pillow! :) I'd love to make a Gentlemen's Travel Case for my husband too!


You can find out more about the book in Betz's Present Perfect trailer! You can purchase a copy in the Interweave store or on Amazon.


I've got an extra copy of the book to give away to one of you today too! Simply leave a comment on this post. I'll choose a winner on Monday (10/20). Make sure to leave an email address so I can contact the winner.

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Lisa Marie!
