Very first giveaway!



I'm so excited! I thought and thought...what do I like to make? What can I give away? Then it came to me. I love to make bags. So for my first give away I will give away a bag. Nothing fancy, just something useful with fun fabric. Something you could use to run to the library or the farmer's market. You know an all around bag. So, that's what I'm going to call it. The fat dollar all around bag, fat dollar because it's basically made from 4 fat quarters...get it? It's quite generously sized as you can tell from my modeled photo (thanks O.) and when I say you could go to the market with, I mean you can go to the market with it. There's no pattern to it. I just cut up some fat quarters, made a square bottom bag, lined it, put some pockets on the inside and did some cute knotted handles to give it a bit of zing. Can't remember where the fabric came from, although I think the dots came from the Patsy Aiken's outlet. Post a comment to enter or go crazy and subscribe to my blog. I'll pick a random winner on Tuesday. Good luck.

That's an adorable bag! I enjoy entering contests and I will follow your blog. You might want to check out www.contemporarycloth.com. It's an online fabric company that has lots of neat fabrics. (I work there.) I like making totes, too. I'm halfway through an Amy Butler bag now. Thanks!

That is such a cute bag! I am trying to learn to sew and quilt (I say try because I am, and have been, moving for what seems like forever) but am very intimidated by the craft. I hope to get better and gain encouragement. Thanks for the post.

Congratulations on your FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!! :D

Oooooh! I love this bag! :) You don't give yourself enough created. Not everyone could take 'a couple of pieces of fabric' throw it together and make a bag. I am so impressed, and my sister would love it for Christmas this year... don't you want to make a little girl happy on Christmas morning? lol
