Countdown to Christmas: KCEtsy Team's Great Giveaway! WEEK NINE: Win a Sparkle Flower Power magnet set Sparkle Book from Anne B. Vinyl!
WEEK NINE: Win one Sparkle Flower Power (set of four vinyl magnets) and one Sparkle Book (Vinyl Composition Book Cover) in the mini composition book size from Anne Hollond at Anne B. Vinyl!
Says Anne, "I've been sewing with various vinyl fabrics for the past 10 years. I started on a whim, after seeing a segment on Martha Stewart's television show about oilcloth placemats. After I made the placemats, I couldn't stop thinking about what else I could make with this amazing fabric, and I discovered other vinyl fabrics that were also incredibly appealing. I still can't stop! My inspiration comes from all over. I tend to just be in a constant state of viewing the world through a vinyl lens. I'm always jotting down ideas for things that I think would look fabulous in vinyl, or things that are already made of vinyl but aren't made of cool vinyl! (That's how the pocket protectors came about.) I'm also very lucky -- and very grateful -- to have so many people (especially on Etsy) approach me with ideas. I've currently got several fun projects in the works based on these ideas. One of them, in an amusing full-circle way, is a set of placemats!"
Anne notes that it's hard for her to pick a favorite item. "So many of them have interesting and sentimental back-stories. In a general sense, I'm particularly fond of the appliqued designs. They're very challenging, because the sewing is slow and the margin for error is tiny, but I really enjoy the challenge and the end result. I'm also very proud of my collaborative projects with Christy Schneider at The Petite Press - Project Nerd Power, Project Sip-in-Style, and Project Sup-in-Style."
