OK, I'm still learning this blog stuff. Ever since Kaaren announced her 4th of July giveaway, I have been trying to put her button on my blog. I did it once before with the rainbow swap button but couldn't remember how I did it! Well gang, I think I got it! Go to her blog and see the wonderful things she is giving away!
As I posted before, I was lucky enough to be asked to be a pattern tester for Stephanie's West Linn Bag. She debuted the pattern last week and I am so happy for her! She has already made some sales and hopefully many more! As a thank you to me, she gave me one of her patterns YEA! It's lovely and her daughter did a bang up job of designing the packaging!
Along with the pattern, she gave me this yummy stack of pretty pink fat quarters!
Goodness! Lucky me! Now I need a special project to use these in!
In the meantime, Stephanie's bag got me in the mood to make a bag too!
Something with pretty little yo yos please!
A little quilted bag just big enough to comfortably fit a paperback book
But what's that little hangy thing on the handle?
A gift tag! This is my fabric version of a gift bag that EVERYONE uses. I hardly ever wrap gifts anymore. It's so much easier to pop it in a giftbag, add a bit of tissue paper and it's good to go!
I've made this kind of bag for years now. We reuse the Christmas themed ones every year in my house. I just slide in a new gift tag eack time. I have used DecorBond interfacing in the past but I used fleece instead on this bag and I like it!
I'm going to make a few for my Etsy site but this particular bag is up for grabs. Leave me a comment between now and June 30th. Everyone's name will be put in a bag (1 entry per person so multiple comments do not increase you chances of winning). I will announce the winner the first week of July. Come on, play along. I don't have a big following so your chances of winning are pretty good! Maybe you will be extra lucky and win here and at Kaaren's!
