Dahlia Tech Giveaway


I contacted Patti, the owner of Dahlia Tech, about doing a giveaway. Patti was happy to oblige and I got to pick the cute Android/iPhone Handmade Phone Case to give away. I asked Patti to share some information about herself and her shop Dahlia Tech, on Etsy, with us.

"Hi!! My name is Patti Ferron and after a successful career as a software engineer I am now a lucky stay-at-home grandmother of nine!! Between trips to the ice cream parlor and sand filled excursions to the lake I wanted something to keep my hands busy and my mind active. :) 

I have always loved to create. I remember receiving my first beading loom from my grandparents for Christmas when I was 8. I would spend hours stringing and restringing beads to get the exact design I wanted. At 12 I was given my own wood burning kit and at the age of 14 my Great Aunt Mildred taught me to knit! I was in heaven!!

My high school years were spent picking potatoes in Aroostock County, Maine during potato harvest where it was required of every female to take a home economics class. That is where I learned to sew and I haven't stopped yet! I would sew skirts, shorts, suits and even swim suits on my mothers old Singer sewing machine. The machine was made of cast iron and folded down into the most beautiful sewing cabinet a girl could ever ask for! 


Looking back it only stands to reason that I would choose sewing for my activity of choice when opening my Etsy store. Also, being in the computer field for so many years swayed me towards making laptop and eReader sleeves. I love the looks of my own cell phone, eReader, netbook and laptop inside a brightly padded sleeve!! 



Thank you for taking the time to checkout my Etsy store: www.dahliatech.etsy.com



I hope you will find it fun!! Keep me in mind when you are in need of a gift for someone or even for yourself!! Have a blessed day! 


Patti"

So here's what we will be giving away:
 
 

It's pretty cute right?! I am totally envious of whoever wins this! I would love one for my Android, which ironically decided to crap out on me yesterday while I was writing this post. So here's some information about the phone case itself.

Carry your cell phone or Blackberry device in style and with a little sparkle and bling! with this cute but versatile and fully padded pouch.


This pouch is made with 100% double sided quilters fabric and interfaced with heavy weight interfacing thus giving your case added padding, form and stability.


Each pouch has up to 8 crystals permanently attached on its front side that will give your new cell phone or Blackberry case its own personal look, appeal and Bling! I have strategically placed each crystal to create a specific design or random pattern and because every pouch is handmade there will never be a duplicate. Each and every pouch will be unique and one of a kind!! 


Each pouch is lined with soft anti-pill fleece or heavy weight felt. Both linings help keep your communication device scratch free and gives it an added layer of protection. As well as the added protection the fleece/felt lining also helps clean your device each time it is slipped in and out of the sleeve.


The exterior slip pocket is perfect for holding credit cards, cash, ear buds and more and since the silk cord extends over the slip pocket it helps hold your valuables in place and keeps your communication device cozy and safe inside its pouch. It is finished with a stylish button that adds to the style of this lovely pouch.


This sleeve will fit the following devices or any device that has measurements not to exceed 2.6" x 4.56" x .6"

** Apple iPhone 3G and 4G
** Apple iPod Touch(iTouch)
** Antroid
** Droid

    Thanks for this chance! This case is exactly what I need! Perfect dimensions for my galaxy s - which is starting to get scratches.. believe it or not, I am not as graceful as I may appear! I tried making a case for it myself.. most definitely did NOT turn out this cute (nor effective). So I gave in and bought one.. which I need to return because it's too small.

    most perfect & cute giveaway!
