Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog-aversary post!! It was fun to hear from so many readers. :) I’m holding two giveaways this week (possibly three, if I can get a little sewing done in the next couple days!), and this is the first one. (Everyone is welcome to enter any or all of the giveaways if you’d like!)
I’m giving away this cute little toile/check handbag, handmade by yours truly. :)
This is from the “Mama Bag” pattern in Handmade Home, by Amanda Blake Soule, which I received for Christmas. It’s a really nice book and I’d definitely recommend it for anyone who enjoys sewing and crafting! Anyway, this is just a fun little simple bag (no pockets--just a tote) and the toile is so pretty and springy. The outside is made from home decor fabric and it’s lined with white dotted swiss, and I must add a disclaimer that the sewing job isn’t exactly perfect . . . I do try hard to get things lined up, but it doesn’t always quite work out the way I’d hoped. :) Also, as you can see, the back of the bag features an upside-down toile design ;) . . . simply because the outside of the bag is made of one piece of fabric, meaning that one of the sides ends up upside-down! Which wouldn't be an issue with many fabrics, but with toile . . . Anyway, if you don’t mind that, and a few other little imperfections, then leave me a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win!! And stay tuned for the next giveaway, coming soon!
*This giveaway will be open until midnight next Wednesday, March 24th. I'll try to announce the winner on Thursday, or Friday at the latest.*
**My apologies to my overseas friends, but I’m going to have to make this a “US only” giveaway, just so I can ship more cheaply--sorry about that!**
