MoriahMade : shop + giveaway!

remember this lovely girl?
this is my Amanda friend, who I talk about a lot...umm, well, because I see her a lot and we have so much in common and read so many of the same blogs that we could literally talk for 24 hours straight.
umm, yep.
she's pretty awesome. ;)
well, what many of you don't know is that she is a totally incredible seamstress!
seriously, this girl is the most creative person I know when it comes to sewing/DIY projects.
and she's officially starting a sewing business!
woot woot!
why the name?
well the 'made' part of it is obviously because she makes things, and she liked that the name 'moriah' in Scripture means 'the Lord will provide', and the meaning in the baby book was 'the Lord is my teacher.'

she specializes in headbands, zippered pouches, and camera straps, but is open to custom sewing projects as well!
she does not have an online shop, but if you want to purchase one of her products you can do so by contacting her:

she loves to do custom orders!  just contact her to work out the details!

{shipping and handling is not included in the prices below}
 {All prices are based on the amount of time needed to make the item and the cost of materials}

here is just a sampling of some of the amaaaazing creations she's made...

{camera embroidered pouch-$18}

{pencil case-$12}
the detail in the embroidery is so amazing..

{camera Strap-$10}

 this ruffled one is so fun!
{camera strap with ruffle-$16}
me and my zebra strap she made me...lovelove.

I commissioned her to make a bunch of headbands for my girl piano students as Christmas presents in December...


would be a fun idea for birthday party favors, etc, as well.
{if you have a little girl/younger sister}

and look what she made me for my birthday!
{contact her for specific pricing if you are interested in this item} :)
isn't that the most incredible handmade thing ever?!
and we're giving away this totally cool zippered pouch to one lucky blog reader!
{you knew all those hours of reading this blog would pay off, didn't you} :)
isn't it just screaming 'win me!'

she does the embroidery all by hand....ah.maz.ing.
 could be handy to hold your camera manual in, eh?
