May Giveaway!


First of all, thank you to Sew Mama Sew for supporting a blog giveaway day! And, thank you for visiting my blog. I wasn't sure what to do for my giveaway - but I finally decided on this darling little number. The pattern is the "Coming and Going Bag" by That Darn Kat and fabrics are from Patty Young's Andalucia collection. The interior has one pocket and it has a magnetic snap closure. Purse measures 14" W at widest, 9" H at center of purse (not including strap) and strap has approx. 10 1/2" drop.

I would love to continue quarterly giveaways on my blog. I would do monthly giveaways, but honestly, I don't trust myself to have sewn enough to promise that!! Maybe some day... so if you are in for that, please let me know! I typically have a stash of fabric scraps, extra supplies or projects that I've completed and maybe don't think are quite worthy to put in my shop. I have learned so much from all of you creative bloggers out there, I would love to give back in some small way.

So, if you would, leave a comment below and you will be eligible for this giveaway. I will randomly choose a winner on Sunday, May 31st. I will announce the winner via blog post later that afternoon (we're getting back in town that day). But, make sure I have a way to get in contact with you (either blog info or email) so I can let you know if you've won. And since I'm new to blogging and need some more blog friends, feel free to follow my blog too! I do feel a need to give a special THANK YOU to those of you who have left your sweet comments to help me get going!
