Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!



Yay, Sew Mama Sew's annual giveaway day is finally here! I'm so excited to be taking part for the first time, and I may even be more excited to check out everyone else's wonderful giveaways. Head on over to the Sew, Mama, Sew blog to find the master lists with links to all the goodies!

So up for grabs today we have a tote bag handmade by me using fabric from Joel Dewberry's Chestnut Hill collection with a cotton canvas bottom to add stability.




Also included will be some stash builders - a bag of buttons, and a stash of fabric scraps. The fabric is a mix of designer (including Amy Butler, Tina Givens, and Moda) and random cotton, and some flannel.



Okay so here's what you have to do to enter: leave me a comment (preferably something other than "pick me!") for one entry, if you are a follower (or become one) leave me a second comment saying so and you'll get a second entry. That's it! Please make sure I have a way to contact you so that if you win I can let you know!

This giveaway is open internationally and comments will close on December 6th (as per the giveaway guidelines). I will announce the winner here on the blog that day and send an email to the winner.

*The giveaway is now closed*
