On The Cover and Celebrating

It's not everyday that a girl gets her handmade items on the cover of a magazine!!! I actually found out by accident as Sew News never mentioned that they had chosen the bags for the cover. A picture of the August/September cover came up on the Sew News website and low and behold, there were the bags. Fun! In case you missed the previous post, the bags are from Grainline Studio and they are the Portside Travel Collection.
So, for those of you who have followed the blog for more than a minute, you know that I love nothing more than being able to share the joy. Sew News graciously gave me 4 copies of the magazine to share with those of you who drop by the blog. Well, to be honest, they gave me 5 issues, but selfish me, I'm keeping 1 for myself :) 
Of course I'm a little partial, but it is a fun issue. There's a super cute clutch pattern. It's a free pattern until the end of September. You can find and download the pattern HERE.
 For those of you who enjoy painting and embellishing fabric, there's a fun article on stamping.
The beautiful wooden stamps are hand carved and for sale in the Sew News store. You can find them HERE. I have a vintage wooden stamp that I actually use as decortive art in my home. So the stamps make lovely artistic pieces when not in use.
The drill will be the usual;
1.You must be a follower of this blog. Let me know in the comment section how you follow the blog, email, Bloglovin, Feedly, etc.
2.And of course, just leave a comment and let me know that you would like to be in the running. 
I will draw 4 names on Saturday, August 15, 2015, so be sure to stop back by and see if you won!
Good Luck!!! Maybe my good fortune will rub off on you :)

  11. I follow your blog. And love it. I went to two different shops here in St. Louis (Hancock and Joann's) and they did not have this magazine. I have previously found it at Hancock. I'm thinking everyone is buying it up for the great cover! I'd love a copy.
