As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Thank you very much to all those who voted for the Green Swap contest, we had 100 votes in total! alhumduliLlah.

And the winner is.... Bag number TEN.

Designed by monArt. A gorgeous tote indeed! Not only did she sew the bag, but the image on is hand painted. (Anyone interested in purchasing a custom hand painted bag by her, please email me for details).

Congratulations! You did an amazing job!

And of course, every winner needs a prize. You get to enjoy a $20 web shopping spree. There is a few limits though, it must be a handmade item (or items) or/and any 'green' item(s).

Here are a few suggestions (you are not limited to them); they are stores by ladies who have participated in this swap. And others are welcome to add their site in the comments section.

  • Sew Stylish
  • Surviving's Craft Room
  • Star Girl Jewelry & Lampwork

    What a supprise! Thank you thank you thank you!
    This will sound utterly stupid but I completely missed the vote part and would've missed the winner part if Farhanna hadn't mailed me...
    I had the blog added to my favourites but only the "green swap sign in" page. So I checked there and assumed everything will be announced there at the swap or by mailings. Mmmm please don't ask, what an assumption.
    Well so I had a major supprise and thanx again for all your voters. The bag was made following a pattern and yes, I handpainted the whole bag on both sides with textile paint.
    I'll add this page to my blog ;-)
    and thank you for all who participated and Farhanna as host. I'll surely go and to some etsy ;-) what a great day!

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Baraktuhu my dear sisters,

    If Digital Nomad and monArt didn't vote.. and I have 100 votes..I should really think about getting advertising huh..hehe :)

    lol.. my dear digital, I totally hear that.. I wouldn't know which one to vote for either.

    Yuppers Gulnarita, all hand painted! Doesn't it make you feel like getting some fabric and painting :)

    MonArt..I'm so happy it turned out to be a surprise too! Haha..I can't believe you've already done your shopping! God willing I shall purchase them today..and your package should be on its way.
    I wish you stayed closer to us you can give us some fabric painting lessons.

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam
    Take care
    Love Farhana
