As promised last week, I’m participating in Sew, Mama, Sew’s May Giveaway Day today. I’m posting this before they have the list of participants up, but it sounds like there are hundreds…so get comfy. If you’re visiting me for the first time because you found me on that list, welcome! If this whole Giveaway Day thing is news to you, enter to win here, then visit Sew, Mama, Sew’s blog and enter a bunch of others too!
Now for the important part – the giveaway. I had a tough time choosing what it would be, but finally landed on a Ninja Monkey Bag. I hadn’t made one in a while and had a summery piece of Michael Miller fabric that was perfect for it.
I used another Michael Miller, black with white polka dots, for the inside, because you just can’t go wrong with polka dots. Or black and white. Or Michael Miller.
I made a fabric flower for the outside, rounding the points of the petals so they matched the print.
Because I was limited by the amount of fabric I had, the handles are a bit shorter than usual. The entire purse, as shown, measures about 27” from the knot in the handle to the bottom of the bag.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. That’s it. Saying something nice won’t improve your chances of winning, but it will make my day better. I will ship anywhere, so feel free to enter whether or not you’re in the U.S. You have until 11:59 pm, Pacific time, on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 to enter. On Thursday morning I will randomly draw a winner from the comments and notify that person via email.
Thanks for visiting, good luck on this entry and all your others, and enjoy Giveaway Day!
