So what's the connection with the blog today? Well, nothing really, but it's a crazy giveaway week!!!
Quite a few have thrown their name in to win a copy of the brand new issue of Sew News magazine. I'm drawing the winning names tomorrow, so be sure to pop over to THIS post if you would like an opportunity to win 1 on the 3 magazines that I have to give away.
In the new issue of Sew News, you can also see the Swoon Patterns Stella Weekender Bag that I made for the upcoming sew along that will begin in September.
When I initially contacted Alicia, the designer of Swoon Patterns, about her bag being considered for a sew along article, she was SOOO excited. Rather than send me just the pattern for the Stella Weekender Bag, she sent 2 others that she thought I might like. The first is the Evelyn Handbag and Market Tote.
There are 2 bag sizes included in the pattern. Here are the specifics of the pattern and the supply list.
SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
Now for the good news!!! Alicia would like to give away an Evelyn Bag pattern to one of you. How generous!
So just leave a message on this post and let me know that you would like to be considered. I will draw the winning name next Monday, August 1, 2016.
I'll have my construction of the bag up on the blog next week, so you can take a look prior to making your own.
