241 Tote giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER...THANKS TO ALL THAT PARTICIPATED :) NO FURTHER ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED

To keep the fun going...a second giveaway!!!

The last Sew Mama Sew giveaway week was about the same time I started this blog. I was new to the whole blogging thing, as I still am but this time I want to join in the fun by having my first giveaway!

Who doesn't need a new bag for summer?  This colorful and fun handbag was made using Noodlehead's 241 pattern.

It measures 15" W x 10" H and has pockets galore! There are 2 zippered pockets on the outside, that hold much more than you think possible, and two generously sized slip pockets on the exterior that easily fit in a large pair of sunglasses and cell phone.

The interior also has a smaller slip pocket to further keep you organized. The strap is the perfect length to toss over your shoulder or wear cross body if you prefer.

Marilize said...

"Anywhere on Earth" - hahaha. Love your sense of humour :)

Well, we are crawling into winter on this end, but I discovered how much I loved walking around the forests here in Cape Town. We have two young border collies and they need out time every day for at least an hour. With this I learnt how therapeutic it is to just enjoy nature and watching them get all giddy with all the scents and other dogs = bliss.

Thank you for an amazing giveaway. I am tentatively eyeing the 241 pattern to try out. It's scares me a little as I am still in the normal tote phase. This one is amazing and whoever the winner is will be a lucky fish indeed.

Thank you for a great giveaway and the chance to win.
