May Day Giveaway Day - Part 1

It's here again.  Yay! 

Sew, Mama, Sew! is doing it again, their Giveaway Day Week.  A week where bloggers and shops can gather to one location and have a giveaway hop.

Sew, Mama, Sew! has ingeniously broken down on how you can go to giveaways that appeal to you.  If you're just interested in bags there is a whole giveaway section for that, or if it's just supplies you want well there are giveaways for you too.  Just hop on over to Sew, Mama, Sew! to see the list of all the bloggers and shops who are participating. 

I will be participating in two giveaways this time, one will be a bag, as seen in this post (see below), and the other will be supplies, a bundle of 10 vintage sheet fat quarters.  To enter for the fat quarters go to this separate post.

As some of you already know I'm into vintage sheets.  I love the flow-y, softness of them and their colors are fantastic.  This has become my median of choice for my sewing/crafting/obsession.  My handmade items I sell on Etsy are mainly out of vintage sheets, with the occasional new fabric listing. Right now I have a variety of bags, bunting, and fat quarter bundles.  All out of vintage sheets. 

So for this giveaway you have a chance to win your choice, from my Etsy Shop, Reversible Vintage Sheet Market Bag.  A fantastic large bag for a weekend around town, or everyday use,

and don't forget...it's reversible.

Approx. measurements
19" across
20" from bottom to top of handle
14" from bottom to bottom of handle

You have two chances to enter.

1.) All you need to do to enter is leave a comment.  Any comment is fine.  Do you love vintage sheets?  Tell me why.  Or what random things would you throw into such a large bag?

2.) For a second entry let me know if you follow my blog (recent or old).

This giveaway is open Internationally until Friday, May 25 5:00 p.m. PST.  The winner will be chosen at random that following Saturday, May 26.

If your email address is not set up in your profile please leave it with your comment.

Don't forget to enter Part 2 of my giveaway if you're interested in a bundle of vintage sheet fat quarters.

Happy Giveaway Day hopping.

  1. beautiful bag! I'd always toss in my phone, wallet and keys-- and now that it's summer, probably a book and an umbrella, too (just in case)!

  2. I think this bag is beautiful, and would be great for throwing spare clothes and a beach towel in for taking my daughter down to the neighborhood pool!

  3. I love that these bags are reversible! It's like having 2 bags in 1! I really like bigger bags because having a 3 year old means carrying around a little more than I normally would!
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I love your shop and will definitely be checking it out more often!

  32. Ooh. I love vintage sheets mostly for the feel/ texture - worn softness, but also the colors. This bag would most likely hold whatever my current project-on-the-go is. It could be knitting socks or a sleeve to something, or it could be some hand-sewing, perhaps a little embroidery or mending a hole in a beloved shirt. Something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This bag is gorgeous, would love to throw my crafty stuff in there for embroidery or hand sewing on-the-go!

  63. Honestly I don't know much about vintage sheets but from reading all the comments I'm starting to think they're pretty fantastic! lol

    I'm always on the lookout for more project bags for my knitting so this would be a perfect bag for a sweater project.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've recently been making shoppping bags from vintage pillowcases, so this is right up my alley! I probably wouldn't use this for shopping, though. This would be my every day bag with my wallet, book, water bottle, travel tissues, green shopping bag (just in case), phone and car keys. That's what I usually have with me at all times
