Giveaway Day!

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED! I'm drawing now and will post the winner in a bit. Thanks again for all the great comments!

That's right, it's time for my first giveaway. Thank you to Sew, Mama, Sew for making today a giveaway day (and creating in me an ambition to make something to give away!).

The grand prize:
Tote

This is a gathered top tote I made from vintage home dec weight fabric. It is unlined, but I'm proud to say that I tried my hand at french seams. No rough, unfinished seams for any winner of my giveaway!

If you want this bag to show up in your mail box, all you have to do is leave a comment. I'll pick a winner on Friday, so make sure you check back to see if you won!

The (only) slightly less grand prize is that I'm having a sale at my etsy shop. From now until December 14th, everything is 15% off. The prices have already been changed.
