Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day!!!!

Giveaway is now closed!

Whoo Hoo! I love it when Sew Mama Sew sponsors its Giveaway Days! So much fun to go blog hopping and find other great blogs and possibly win some great loot.

I'm giving away a purse handmade by me. The exterior has a soil and stain release finish and is a home decorator fabric so it should be very durable.

If you want to make a purse yourself, the purse pattern/tutorial can be found on this blog.
(At the end of the second paragraph on Melissa's post is the link to download the pattern)


I have trimmed the bag with black soutache braid. The interior is a gray cotton with white polka dots, it has a magnetic snap closure, and pockets made from the exterior fabric. I have a smoke and pet-free home.



HOW TO WIN:
******I love my international readers also, so please feel free to participate.*****
  1. Leave a comment on this post. It can be anything you want to say: You could tell me what you ate for breakfast, how much you love my blog, (Yes, I am shamelessly trying to get compliments☺) you know, whatever. . .
  2. Follow my blog and leave a comment telling me you are a follower. Of course, if you already are a follower please leave a separate comment telling me that.
VERY IMPORTANT:
Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you win. If I can not contact you, I will have to choose another winner.

I will choose the winner using a random number generator Friday morning, May 21, 2010
