Sewing Pattern & Gift Certificate Giveaway

Our sponsors at the Fat Quarter Shop have generously donated an Ruthie Clutch pattern AND a $50 Gift Certificate to their online shop!
I just finished making myself one and I have to say… I love it!
Isn’t it cute?!

This gorgeous fabric is from Alhambra II by Patricia Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics 
The body of the clutch is: Alhambra II Teal Mazy Bricks 
The top band is: Alhambra II Aqua Moorish Blooms
The lining is: Alhambra II Garden Cashmere Cameo

I have to say I am not usually a huge fan of commercial patterns because they often confuse me more than anything and I get frustrated because the final project never turns out the way I want.  


this Anna Maria Horner Ruthie clutch pattern was an easy to follow pattern that was not too complex for a confident beginner to tackle. If you are into having a clutch purse that matches your shoes, outfit, etc… then I would definitely recommend you try this pattern.  It is simple enough that you can make it out of any fabric you want and embellish with all kinds of beads, buttons, and other goodies.  This would also make a great gift!

here is my mini review of the Ruthie Clutch pattern:

Strong Points: 
-pattern is printed on newsprint instead of tissue paper so its nice and sturdy
-pattern lines are thick and bold so you can trace onto freezer paper and not have to cut into your original pattern
-few pattern pieces
-clear and easy to follow instructions
-glossary of basic sewing terms for beginners
-clear diagrams to help follow steps
– clutch purse is just the right size to carry all your essentials

Low Points:
inserting top band interfacing is a little tricky
– technique on ruffling clutch is tricky, there are easier ways of doing it

Here are the giveaway details:
The Ruthie Clutch pattern and $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop giveaway will run until Saturday, July 31st at 11:59pm.

Winner announced HERE.

One random winner will be selected to win BOTH prizes and announced on Aug. 1st.  So, please leave me a way to contact you in case you are the winner! 

To enter, leave a comment here letting me know what you plan on doing with your $50 Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate.

…maybe some new fabrics to make your Ruthie Clutch? working on a new quilt project?
…$50 is a lot of money!!

So… head on over to Fat Quarter Shop and start daydreaming about the extra $50 you might just win!

  24. annette July 26, 2010 at 11:15 am #

    That is really difficult to answer because I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE everything in the Fat Quarter Shop! I have been wanting to finish a large embroidered snow babies quilt to donate at the Festival of Trees (fundraiser for Children’s Hosp. in Salt Lake City), so I would probably buy the binding, backing and such to finish it up by this November. The embroidery is all done.
    I am so happy I “stumbled” upon your website.

    Plus the neighbor across the street just had a girl, and I certainly don’t have enough girly fabrics (lying here! haha)


  28. Megan's Mom July 26, 2010 at 11:54 am #

  40. Cairistiona July 26, 2010 at 1:36 pm #

    I have just recently picked up my dream of owning my own sewing machine and sewing as a hobby. I just love making gifts for my family and friends because it means so much more.

    I got a few books on how to make some purses and Ruthie clutch patterns just look like they would be absolutely fun to do and the results of the one you made looks great!

    I would hope to use this giveaway to simply have the pleasure of making such a fun and unique purse for someone who really deserves it.

  41. Marr Williams July 26, 2010 at 1:51 pm #

    I’ll be buying more Fat Quarters of course!

  42. AKing July 26, 2010 at 2:06 pm #

  43. Shari July 26, 2010 at 2:23 pm #

  49. Lindsey July 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm #

    I don’t think I would make the clutch right away but I would definitely be ordering some pretty fabrics to make some of my to-do projects for the nursery (I’m pregnant and due January 19th!). This would be so exciting to win! 🙂 Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  50. Emily July 26, 2010 at 3:16 pm #

  51. illenion July 26, 2010 at 3:55 pm #

    I’d love to splurge on something really nice for the binding and backing of my first quilt ever, which is currently in the works and mainly made up of scraps. Thanks!

  52. just a scrap of paper July 26, 2010 at 3:56 pm #

    I am always needing more fabric. Wonderful giveaway.

  53. darling "B" me July 26, 2010 at 3:59 pm #

    I love fabric and can’t wait to make my aunts and sisters beautiful xmas gifts.

  54. Maria July 26, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

    Great give away!!! I’m a daily lurker on Fat Quarter Shop and would love to pick up a few fat quarters to begin my quilting obsession!

  55. Fiesta July 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

    Thank you for the chance to win. I would buy some fall fabrics to use for that bag pattern since fall colors are just my favorite.

  56. Elena July 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    Great job on the purse! I know how commercial patterns can often be too detailed and complex, so I feel ya there.

    I would use the $50 to birthday gift myself some Tufted Tweets and Far Far Away 2 to make a couple of nice quilts, and maybe a bag to match each! Fun!

  57. Robin C July 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

    that’s a cute purse pattern. would make nice gifts. I like easy patterns that are quick.

    $50.00 to shop for whatever my heart desires? I’d probably look at the latest Christmas fabrics and gift ideas.

  58. Jona July 26, 2010 at 4:37 pm #

    There are so many new lines coming out right now and I really don’t know which one to buy first. It would – of course- go into a new quilting project, though I don’t know if that would be a quilt. I also need new covers for my cussions. My living room is red in red and I am getting a bit tired of seeing red everywhere I look.

  59. Line July 26, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    I’d love to get some fabric to make the clutch, but also to try and make a nice summer top for me.
    Thanks for the chance!

  60. flutefish July 26, 2010 at 4:42 pm #

    I would get some jelly rolls, because I think they are super-pretty and I would love to try a quilt with one, but sadly all the nice ones are rather expensive!

  61. Heather July 26, 2010 at 4:47 pm #

    Hmm, what I would like to do is pick out some of my favorite fabrics. But the reality would be that I would drive myself insane with all of the choices. Put things in my cart only to remove them when I found something else. I would probably have to just randomly add stuff to my cart, then just enjoy what I ended up with!! Like a surprise.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

    ellyman23 at gmail dot com

  62. Erica July 26, 2010 at 4:48 pm #

    Thanks for the great giveaway! Your Ruthie clutch is awesome. With $50 from Fat Quarter Shop I could get some of Kate Spain’s 12 Days of Christmas which looks so cool!

  63. Wendy July 26, 2010 at 4:51 pm #

    Hi! First of all, if I won the certificate I’d have to purchase some terrific fall fabric for your adorable clutch then I’d put any left over dollars towards Saltbox Harvest and Awesome projects I have planned. Thanks for this opportunity!!

  64. Melissa July 26, 2010 at 4:54 pm #

    If I won the gift certificate I would purchase some of the vintage reproduction fabric so I could finally get going on a quilt for my daughter’s bed. I have just started collecting the fabric, I have 6 pieces so far, but I need about a dozen more. Thanks for doing this giveaway. By the way, I am your newest follower! I found your blog through the Jolly Jabber!

  65. gretam July 26, 2010 at 4:54 pm #

    I would definitely buy some fabric to start my first quilt! Thanks for the chance to win! Fat Quarter Shop is a great place to find beautiful fabrics!

  66. June July 26, 2010 at 4:55 pm #

    I love your Ruthie clutch. My sewing skills are no where near being able to make one yet. I think I’d get some 12 Days of Christmas and get started on Holiday gifts.

  67. Deb July 26, 2010 at 4:56 pm #

    I certainly would LOVE to win this giveaway!! Thanks so much for the chance. I’d definitely buy some fabric (maybe Fandango) and start on a quilt. I already have one in the works with Verna, and I love it.

  68. Jo Anne July 26, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    A gift certificate would be great to help me acquire some Moda Woodland Holiday fabric.

  69. Cindy July 26, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    Actually I’m seeing your Ruthie Clutch, I’m thinking how beautiful and elegant it would be in black velvet with white satin on the upper part. Yes – I let my mind wander at times..LOL

    And as far as the $50 FQS Gift Certificate – I’d grab up some of Deb Strain’s Saltbox Harvest fabrics and the panel.

  70. Caitlin July 26, 2010 at 5:04 pm #

    ooo that clutch looks great! If I were to win, I’d get some cute fabric to make reversible headbands!

  71. Molly July 26, 2010 at 5:08 pm #

    I love your clutch! How beautiful! I’d put the FQS certificate towards that adorable Fandango Tango quilt kit coming in August that I want to make as a surprise for my sister!

  75. Turtle July 26, 2010 at 5:29 pm #

    gorgeous bag!! (You always show sweet projects though!) Their shop is nice, i had to bookmark them! It would be a toss up right now what i would do. It is between a skirt, bag or bed pillows/linens for daughters dorm room. This will be her first year away for school so mom, (me), is stressing this, lol. She is having her bed mid high and wants an assortment of fun pillows to use it as a day bed during the daytime.

  76. lynnquiltsalot July 26, 2010 at 5:46 pm #

    Adorable bag! From the FQS I’d have to load up on some layer cakes in all the luscious fall fabrics. I just love the new line by Deb Strain, Saltbox Harvest. Thanks for the chance to win.

  77. Becky July 26, 2010 at 5:49 pm #

    Fabulous pattern review!I’ve just discovered your blog from the Jolly Jabber blog. I’d love to order some yardaage of the Saltbox Harvest line. I just purchased some charm packs, but would love more 🙂 Thanks for hosting this give-away!

  84. Katie July 26, 2010 at 6:34 pm #

    I’m absolutely in love with the Dr. Seuss fabric, even though it hasn’t come out yet. If I win, I’d try my absolute hardest to save it till the fabric comes out in September. But I might not make it ’cause I love most everything else they have too… Thanks for a chance to win!

  85. Brandy Bollen July 26, 2010 at 6:41 pm #

    I <3 me some awesome FQs!!!
    I make my 2 girls (ages 2 and 4) sweet little skirts and tops out of them. 🙂

  86. Momma Des July 26, 2010 at 6:43 pm #

    I would add some Freebird to my Wonderland stash, then patiently wait for It’s a Hoot in October so that I can put it all together to make one totally rad Momo quilt.

  87. call me crazy July 26, 2010 at 6:47 pm #

    Cute clutch! Good pattern review too~ I always wonder if the pattern will be easy etc before I buy, now I know! Thanks! If I won, I’d be in the pattern section.. if the new fabrics didn’t get me first! LOL Thanks for the chance!

  88. Katie Holt July 26, 2010 at 6:55 pm #

    I would buy fabric from the Dr. Suess line that is coming out. I would love to make my niece a quilt to match her nursery!

    Sandy A

  91. Mary July 26, 2010 at 7:04 pm #

    I’m all set to make some coordinating stuffed baby blocks – more for sucking and batting about than building things with.


  92. Patty July 26, 2010 at 7:12 pm #

    I would love to get some of the Pure fabric, or Fandango. Love those fabrics.

  93. Quilt Hollow July 26, 2010 at 7:23 pm #

    Your clutch is just darling…makes me wish for daughters or DILs. 🙂 Someday perhaps…I was sent here from Fat Quarter Shop as a heads up. If I were lucky enough to be the winner I already know that BLISS would be top of the list.

  94. SheilaS July 26, 2010 at 7:27 pm #

    Love the purse! What would I do with the gift certificate-more fabric! You never can have enough fabric.

  95. singtatter July 26, 2010 at 7:35 pm #

    I like the paper doll series, to make some fabric doll possibly from the nice prints!

  96. Ruth B July 26, 2010 at 7:57 pm #

    Love the Ruthie bag. My dad used to call me Ruthie! I would get more fabric for decorating my house. We moved here a month ago and this place needs some wall quilts and pillows and curtains and, and, and. Awesome giveaway!

  97. Jenybear July 26, 2010 at 8:18 pm #

    I’m teaching myself to sew and I love the patterns at the Fat Quarter Shop. I would use $50 to get some patterns to further my knowledge and to get some materials.

    This is a great idea, by the way. 🙂

  98. lisa July 26, 2010 at 8:26 pm #

    I would spend the $50 on either hungry caterpillar stuff (I am planning on eventually making a nursery collection that I will donate to auction for Seattle Children’s Hospital and am slowly collecting it) or some Kate Spain 12 days of Chrismtas stuff all for myself…or buy impulsively and selfishly until the $50 is gone.

  99. One for a wish.. July 26, 2010 at 8:36 pm #

    Great giveaway, and love the bag.
    i have a new layer cake pattern that I’m dying to would buy a layer cake to use it with.

  100. Marcia July 26, 2010 at 8:36 pm #

    Make some Fabric purchases of course! Something along the lines of New Kaffe F., Martinique, Modern Meadow, Meadowsweet 2, solids, or a new release… some for a quilt and some for a bag.

  101. Debra July 26, 2010 at 8:54 pm #

    Definately buy fabric if I win. I just started quilting so I need to build up a stash.

  102. MoeWest July 26, 2010 at 9:03 pm #

    If I won the $50, I would get some fabric for a Christmas quilt. The Ruthie purse is very cute! I really like Anna Marie Horner’s fabric and patterns.

  103. BillieBee (billiemick) July 26, 2010 at 9:09 pm #

    I would probably buy yet another fat quarter bundle!! That’s such a cute pattern!

  104. Melinda July 26, 2010 at 9:13 pm #

    How couldn’t I spend $50 at the Fat Quarter Shop? Right now I’d probably use it to buy some of the batiks my mother-in-law loves and make her a wonderful quilt for Christmas.

  105. nicole / Twitter: BTHM1 July 26, 2010 at 9:36 pm #

    i’d LOVE to get the Red Wagon Toy Box II Fat Quarter Bundle and make a cute dress for my 3 yr old daughter out of them!

    I would love to get the Saltbox Harvest Flannel Fat Quarter Bundle! An autumn quilt would be just beautiful.

  107. Dee July 26, 2010 at 9:42 pm #

    What a pretty clutch bag! It would be neat to have a purse to match some special outfits. If I won, I would have to buy some Luna Notte for a king-sized quilt for my bed. I need a lot of fabric for it and this would help!

  108. ledamewood July 26, 2010 at 9:47 pm #

    What a nice giveaway, and I have my eye on a FQ bundle of pastels (that I’m not usually attracted to) so I would use the gift certificate towards the purchase of that heavenly bundle.

  109. Mikelle July 26, 2010 at 9:52 pm #

    I would buy more fabric (can’t ever get enough) and maybe a pattern or two).

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter this great giveaway! It seems to be a lucky day for me so I’ll throw my hat in. If I win, of course I would use the money to buy more fabric, or maybe a pattern or two, but probably fabric LOL.

  113. mab July 26, 2010 at 11:29 pm #

    I still need some Freebird, more Nicey Jane, some Tweet Tweet, a few jelly rolls for some quilts, these lines from Patricia Bravo, some JenPaganelli…. Sigh…. $50 will just get me started. 🙂

    Thanks for this great giveaway opportunity! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some Bliss fabric by Bonnie and Camille, and Fresh Cottons by Fig Tree. And I’m sure that there is at least one new pattern I would love to have.

  124. Anonymous July 27, 2010 at 8:27 am #

    What a great give away. The FQS has so many nice things but I would probably put it towards the Snow sparkle quilt kit they just got in.

  125. Pat July 27, 2010 at 9:00 am #

    I love the clutch. I am a purse-aholic anyways and am always buying and making new purses. This would be another great addition to my collection. I love shopping at the FQS and have a list of patterns and fabric on my wish list. If I won the gift certificate I could start making a dent in my wish list. Thanks.


  126. Dawnetta Fields July 27, 2010 at 9:14 am #

    I’ve never made a purse and this sounds like fun. I would use FQ shop batiks!

  127. debbymom July 27, 2010 at 9:23 am #

    I’ve been living out of my stash (self imposed) but have baby quilts to make, so I’d go straight for some Chirp! to achieve that with something new to work with. Can’t wait to try the purse; my daughter would love it.

  128. Andra July 27, 2010 at 9:28 am #

    Thanks for the chance I will be getting some of the ne Origins by Moda, jus bought a charm pack to check it out and LOVE it!

    I would love to win this giveaway! If I did, I would sew the Ruthie clutch. I got the chance to see Anna Maria Horner’s new book, and that was one of the patterns that jumped out at me! Also, I would have to get an Oliver & S pattern. I have been wanting to sew one of those for a long time!

  131. Leesa July 27, 2010 at 9:45 am #

    I would use the gift card for some more jelly rolls or maybe some Authentic line or maybe some cute fabric to make myself a new bag. I really don’t know what I would do with it but I would have fun shopping

  133. Miss Nancy July 27, 2010 at 9:56 am #

    What would I do if I won these prizes? With the gift certificate I would get a start on fabric to make a quilt for our bed. That is a long awaited item on my way too long “to do” list. It is to a point of needing to be done. The cute little clutch bag I would make for one of my younger friends. Thank you for this giveaway.

    Have a super great day.

  134. Nancy July 27, 2010 at 10:42 am #

  159. nanaandpapa1 July 28, 2010 at 8:27 am #

    Thanks for the great review of the pattern. Looks like a fun bag to have in many fabrics. A $50.00 gift certificate would cause me to spend hours looking and deciding, the fat quarter shop is sooooooo wonderful. It would be a tough decision. thanks for sharing.

  160. nat a. July 28, 2010 at 11:05 am #

    I would love to be entered in your giveaway! If I was so lucky to be the winner-I would be starting a quilt for this baby girl who is due out the end of November! She seems to kick really hard when I eat icecream or look at fabric. She definitely is a smart one!

    Thank you so much!

    Natalie Alexander
