I've decided to have a giveaway!

I'm ♥ing how they're turning out.

The winner will receive a custom monogrammed key chain!


















You can choose a single or 3 letter monogram on your choice of fabric.

To be entered in the drawing to win, become a follower on my blog and leave a comment before August 31, 2010 @ Midnight, CDT.
The winner will be announced & contacted on 9/01/10.

  38. I am new to embroidery. I was a bit nervous about doing my first in the hoop project. I fell in love with so many projects on your site. I decided on the monogram keychain holder pattern. I purchased it and within seconds I received my download. Your incredible pictures and easy to follow directions really helped me. After I made my first keychain, I was instantly hooked. Oh my, now I need to shop for more fabric and keychain hardware. I want to make all my family in friends one. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence I needed to create a beautiful project! ♥
