Today is the first day of the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway! To find out about all of the other amazing giveaways going on, go here! I'm giving away 2 of my my handmade 12 Days of Christmas potholders--perfect to keep for yourself or to use for a gift! To be entered in the giveaway, just leave a comment telling me your favorite last-minute gift idea! I'll ship to the US and Canada...entries will close Friday, December 17th, and I'll ship on Monday the 20th!
Because of the giveaway, I'm delaying this week's "Simple Gifts"post until Wednesday...but I do have some weekend sewing to share. First I finished this Authentic bag for my very patient daughter. I made a similar bag over a year ago that I ended up giving to my younger daughter--well, my older daughter also ended up wanting one! It's just been one of those projects on the "back burner" until this weekend, but she now has her bag and is very happy with it!
I also made my first "Snap Happy" bag this weekend....such a fun little pattern. I'll definitely be making more! The pattern comes in three sizes perfect for carrying Ipods, cell phones, or sewing supplies. Best of all...no zipper required!
A measuring tape is the secret to making this bag work. I'm now the proud owner of a new measuring tape that will be cut into a lot of little pieces this week so I can make more bags! Have a great day!
