Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

December 8, 2014

Hello, Welcome to my corner of blog land:) This is the third time I have participated in Sew Mamas Sew’s giveaway- and always really enjoy it:)

Handsfree asymetrical bag

Why give this bag away?  This bag symbolises how I feel about blogging, opportunities to learn, promote recycling fabrics to create new items, and community:)

It is made from fabric remnants and a former skirt (washed!). I love sewing, and blogging – creating and sharing creations made from old clothes. This makes it affordable too! (as well as doing my bit re the environment, reducing items going to landfill).

I blog once to twice a week, sharing my latest creations, and often tutorials (see 35+ tutorials here).

Serger Pepper

The bag is the hands free asymetrical bag from Serger Pepper (you can buy the pattern here, or one of her other great patterns)

Pockets galore

The bag is full of pockets, slip pockets and zip pockets – great for carrying books, toddler drinks, tablet – plenty of room but not over big. The shoulder strap measure 39″, and the bag 8″by 11″.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today, enter below to have a chance of winning (open worldwide)
