One Yard Wonders + GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED!)

I've decided that 2011 is going to be a crafting-year. My bookmarks-folder is overflowing with "I have to make this!.. Eventually", my apartment is overflowing with fabrics and sewing books are piling up in the bookshelf.
So my new years resolution is to make something at least once a week. Sure, I could aim for more, but let's keep it real. more than one thing a week can be a happy surprise instead, haha.

So, I started with the "FOLKLORE BAG" from One Yard Wonders and made sure to pick out a fabric that's not really my style, but still pretty wicked:

I apologize for the not-totally-perfect inside image, I haven't ironed it yet, but i wanted to show the little inside pocket and how roomy it is. 

So, what to do with this thing that isn't quite my style but oh'-so-cute?

For a chance to win this hippie-like bag, all you have to do is comment on this entry and answer this question:
What do you like most about this blog?
I'm aweome enough to ship it worldwide, just make sure you add your email adress so I can send you a message asking for your address if you win. 
You will have until friday the 14th of january to submit your answer. 
Oh! If you spread the news of this giveaway, I will love you forever, just saying.

Don't run with scissors.
