Sew Mama Sew giveaway day!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day is here! I'm so excited to be a part of it this year. Here's what you can win at ellyn's place: A small version of my Nantucket Bag! This bag is the perfect size to take to book club, pack your lunch for work, or tuck a handwork project inside for the road. It has pockets inside too, for your cell phone & your cash.


Of course it won't come empty! You can choose one of my two patterns, the Nantucket Market Bag or the NYC Hipster Bag, and I will include that pattern so you can make your own. Other surprises will be tucked inside too.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by December 6.... tell me which of my two patterns you like best... and make sure I have a way to contact you! I will pick a random comment on December 7 and announce the winner here.


If you are a new visitor to ellyn's place, WELCOME! I hope you'll come back often.

I think I would go for the Nantucket market bag. It looks more like one I would be able to follow, plus I've been wanting to make a lined bag with a squared bottom, but can't seem to find the best way to do it. I'm sure your pattern will answer many questions!!

Thanks for opportunity :-)

I can't pick, I can't pick, I can't pick. They are both really cute bags. But I really like the one you made out of the Christmas Michael Miller fabrics for your family so maybe the Nantucket bag is my pick.
