Ahmelie {review + giveaway}

Welcome to Ahmelie, a shop full of the sweetest fabrics in the most fabulous designs!


Take these lovely hooded towels, for example! Just gorgeous!!



And these burp cloths and swaddlers! Just adorable! But don't you worry, this shop isn't just for spoiling babies! Check out what Ahmelie has for us all!!




Gorgeous clutches, sling bags, and other handbag accessories!



I LOVE key fobs, especially in beautiful colors!! The one thing you won't have to worry about with anything from Ahmelie is the quality! The awesome top of the line fabrics she chooses for her shop are made to last! And if you are really in love with her fabrics, make sure to pick up a yard or two in her shop! Ahmelie is even sweet enough to offer up free sewing and craft patterns (like this fabric necklace one I LOVE!) -- no strings attached! If you're thinking about Christmas shopping, Ahmelie has offered a special discount code to Ivy Twines readers for 10% off your purchase! (IVYTWINES10)

You must check out Ahmelie's blog too! She offers brilliant handmade and DIY ideas and yummy recipes too! (This chocolate zucchini bread sounds delish!)



My turn to gush on the coffee cuff and snack sacks! They are a big hit, and I might add a perfect gift for students, busy moms, or just about anyone! The cuffs fit standard disposable cups, and are slim enough to stick in your bag for easy storage! Plus they come in such fabulous fabrics!!

Snack time is always a popular time in my house, and these snack sacks are the perfect way to go green, save a little green, and keep hungry tummies happy! We filled ours with Cheerios, which one might think would leave icky crumbs and be super tough to clean. Not with Ahmelie's bag though! After snack time was over, I simply pulled out the nylon lining and wiped it clean!!

The Velcro closure was perfect for my girls' hands too! They both just love them!!




Ahmelie is so sweet to offer BOTH the coffee cuff and the snack sack giveaway to a lucky reader of The Ivy Twines, in the winner's choice of print/fabric! Wahoo!!
