Hands Free and a Winner!!!

Inspired from here and here I decided to make my own "Hands Free" handbag.
I bought this "London newspaper" fabric (from here) a couple of weeks ago and thought it perfect for the accent fabric. I used lightweight clear PVC over the top with a quilt style binding so I didn't need a teflon foot for the machine to sew with it. Also used was denim, red and white polka dots and a luggage strap - adjustable.

It isn't quite finished: "Blog Finished" as a few would say!
I shall stitch down the binding at craft tonight.

I think I'm going to love being hands free now!
Now, let's get on to the giveaway winner, I know you are all dying to find out!!
Firstly thank you to those that entered. Your comments keep me motivated to keep going!
We had 55 comments. The pic is a little hard to read but....

the winner is comment number 35 and by my reckoning it is Deb from

"The Angel and the Pukeko"

Congratulations Deb. Please contact me to arrange your prize!!!

Thanks again everyone, Kathryn. XX
