ByAnnie's Soft and Stable giveaway



Remember my recent post about using ByAnnie's Soft and Stable in a bag?

When I find something fantastic and new to me I want to share it! 

I was really pleased with how my bag turned out when I used Soft and Stable.  It was flexible and firm, but certainly not slouchy or stiff.  I know you were interested in it too, as I got many questions from readers. 

Well, here's your chance to win some Soft and Stable to try it out for yourself!
  







In case you aren't familiar with it yet, Soft and Stable can be used instead of batting or other stabilizers in bags and other craft projects. 

Annie had created some amazing bag patterns and she was using headliner foam for her bags.  You know, that foamy stuff used to upholster the inside of the roof in your car?  Some of her students had a difficult time finding the headliner foam, so Annie found a manufacturer to make an even better product for her.  Lucky for us, ByAnnie's Soft and Stable was created!

Soft and Stable is a fairly dense sheet of foam with fabric on both sides, which makes it so easy to use.  It's lightweight and it keeps it's shape.

No need to quilt it if you don't want to! 

ByAnnie's Soft and Stable can be placed right up against the feed dogs of your machine, unlike batting.  This opens up so many possibilities!








Now, if you just can't wait to get your hands on some, ask for ByAnnie's Soft and Stable at your LQS or visit Annie's website.  Be sure to watch the video tutorials she has there and see what the fuss is all about.  

I especially enjoyed the Quilt As You Go With ByAnnie's Soft and Stable tutorial. She uses Soft and Stable to make placemats, no extra quilting needed. 

"Purse Parts" are also available on her site.  I was happy to see that.  I like to put swivel hooks on some of my bags and I have a difficult time finding them.  Now I know where to look! She has so many options!      

    Annie has kindly offered to send one of my readers an 18" x 58" package of white ByAnnie's Soft and Stable.

What a great opportunity for you to try out a new product!  Thanks so much Annie!

For a chance to win, no need to jump through hoops.

Just leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly choose a winner in a week.  Let's say your comment has to be in by 10:00 pm Wednesday, April 10th.  Oh, that would be eastern time since that's what time zone I'm in. 

Good luck!

I don't need to win--I have quite a stock of Soft and Stable. I love Annie and her products. Her finishing kits for lots of her patterns are great, too. You get the specialty parts you need.
