May Giveaway Day!!!

15% off in my Esty shop
for Sew, Mama, Sew readers, 
until May 31 
Code is SewMamaSew
Yay Giveaways!!!!

Check this out.  Sew Mama Sew is coordinating May Giveaway Day.

This is a day where blogs and shops all over can unite and have giveaways, handmade items or supplies that can be used to make handmade items, to their readers one day this month.

Sew Mama Sew will have a master list of all the blogs and shops participating through them so all we have to do is check out their blog on May 23, Giveaway Day, to view the list and start visiting blogs and entering giveaways. 

What a great idea!

If you are simply a blog reader then you have a go-to place to find new blogs, and sign up for giveaways.  However, if you are a blog/shop owner then you have the opportunity to get out there and be noticed, possibly get new followers, and of course also find new blogs and shops.  Believe me I love finding new blogs. I usually find several a week and that's just by reading the blogs I follow, when they have a link to another blog, and it's great, then voila I'm a follower of a new blog.

I love this!!!

So since I made sooo many vintage sheet purses/bags last month I'll be giving away one for this special event.  Up for grabs is a bag from a new, to me, pattern.  A great carry all bag...actually a "grocery" bag, based from a free pattern from BurdaStyle; the Charlie Reusable Grocery bag.  I eliminated the pocket and made it reversible, because isn't a reversible bag just awesome? I love this pattern, and the bag is nice and large.  Plus I didn't feel right making a bag without an interior lining.  Oh and just a little FYI the bottom is not squared off.

This bag has simple clean lines and perfect to carry whatever.  Going down to the pool?  No problem throw in your sunblock, towel and favorite magazine to read while sun bathing.  Going to the grocery store?  Great!  It's prefect for those large bulky chip bags.  Got kids?  Leave them at home and throw in whatever you need for a little break.  Throw in some snacks, toys, Band-Aids and whatever else you need to keep them satisfied.  :-D

This giveaway is open to everyone.  I'll ship internationally!

Simply post a comment to enter, starting today, until May 25th 11:59 pm CST.  The winner will be picked  randomly, via random.org.  If your email address is not linked to your profile then please include your email address in your comment so that I have a way to contact you if you are the winner.

So here it is!!!  The giveaway bag...inside and out.    Good luck and have fun with May Giveaway Day!

Measurements
19" across
20" from bottom to top of handle
14" from bottom to base of handle


The light pink tones you see is from the pattern on interior fabric....or exterior fabric, which ever way you decide to use it.

  35. Perfect bag! I carry a LOT of stuff around with me and I always need a big bag. My son has multiple severe food allergies so not only do I have to carry all his allergy medication and asthma medication. I also have to carry his food with me at all times. I have been known to carry a bag that weighs 14pounds. So big roomy bags are my thing.
