Happy Monday and a Giveaway!

So last week I had the opportunity to test a new pattern for Schoolhouse Patterns - Granny's Pocketbook - how fun is that? This bag is a great size and a quick and easy sew! Very well-written and photographed instructions, so even if you're new to making bags I feel confident you'll be successful with this pattern. It has an adjustable strap and a large front pocket. Great size if you don't need to carry stuff for little people!
I used all Denyse Schmidt for this bag and I'm thrilled to report that I had *everything* on hand to get it done - no cheating on my fabric diet for this one :-) The photo below gives you an idea of the size it is. You can find this great pattern RIGHT HERE on etsy, available as an instant download.
So to celebrate all I've learned through 300 blog posts and to thank everyone who stops by and leaves comments, I'm giving this great bag away! All you have to do is leave a comment here (make sure I have an email address for you if you're a no reply blogger). I'll leave the comments open until Thursday night and announce the winner on Friday.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Holy crap - that is gorgeous! I have a little person but I make him carry his own stuff in his own handmade bags ;) (husband totally gets on my case for making my 5 year old son "purses" but whatcha gonna do?)

  2. Cute bag! I like how you stuck with all DS prints...especially the darker value up top and then using the more colorful prints for the stripes.
