Nancy Drew: Get a HOT clue!

This Giveaway is Now Closed.....thank you and check this blog for a new giveaway coming soon!


“If worry were an effective weight-loss program, women would be invisible.”  --Nancy Drew





I have joined the Nancy Drew Blog Hop (Yes, my Sister made me do this too...) and today I am showing you a HOT clue!

You know how every time you go on a trip, it seems right before you get ready to pack your curling or flat iron, you just have to fix one more unruly piece of hair?  And then you try to figure out how to pack your iron without melting something or burning your favorite blouse??

 Well check out this HOT clue and worry no more!  I found the tutorial for this fabulous little tote at Sew Sweet Blog 





 There is enough room in it for your flat iron plus another iron of your choice and check out the cool tie to keep your cords under control.


















 
I hope you will go check out the tutorial, and I believe Sew Sweet also has an additional U-tube tutorial for this tote......

And I would also like to offer you, my followers, the chance to win your own Nancy Drew Charms (all the ones I had left) plus some pretty fall and spring charms from my stash............just leave one comment letting me know you are a follower..............Mr. Random will pick a winner on March 15....at the end of the blog hop and I will announce the winner on Saturday, March 16.


Now without further ado I, first, want to thank Madam Samm and Carol for taking us on this fun little sleuthing trip, and also want to invite you to check out the other blogs participating in the Nancy Drew Blog Hop today.  Please check out these pages for more Nancy Drew Clues! 

Wednesday, March 6, 2013
 And don't forget the Blog Hop will continue through Friday, March 15.  Click Here to get the full schedule!

I'm on my way to see some more Nancy Drew Clues at the other blogs.....so Ta-Ta for now...............

This is inspiration that I needed!! I always walk out of the hotel with my hot iron dangling from the bar on my suitcase or I have it in my hand... I always use it last...

I think I would use the stuff you put in potholders for the inside instead of batting though. I am gonna make me one!

Thanks for sharing!

I am a follower and I think that is a great idea for the irons. I usually have to wrap mine in foil and hope I have waited long enough to put my things away so I don't set anything on fire!

Debby said...

Clever project! And here I am traveling with my curling brush and probably burning my favorite blouse when I repack it (I hope not). Thanks for reminding us that we can make something other than quilts!

How very neat it is to have a sister to share your quilting stories. I hope you two live close enough that sharing is easy. My sister and I live too far apart and can't share like we'd like.

Sewgreen said...

I'm jealous you can share your quilting with your sister! I have a few online friends, but that's about it :/ most of the quilt guilds meet during the day, and I work :(
