Sew, Mama, Sew: Giveaway Day!

Because we love a fun giveaway, and know you do too, we've decided to participate in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day {if you follow the link you'll find a bunch of great handmade, sewing, and knitting supply giveaways}.  To join in the fun I searched through my stash for a little bit of fabric set aside to make a Jane bag.  That's right, we'll be giving away enough Jelly Roll strips and yardage {and of course, the sewing pattern that goes with it} for the winner to make her very own bag.


The fabric is Heartfield by Barbara Brachman for Moda, it is actually Jane Austen reproduction fabric {and was the inspiration behind the Jane bag}.  Now, I know it's very feminine and pretty, so it's probably not to everyone's taste, but I love it!  I've got a bit of a stash of it and am planning to make at least one more bag out of it.  If you'd like to win some of your own, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling us what your favorite handmade item is {at the moment at least, as mine changes often}.  Here's mine:

My favorite thing right now is my bag out of Simple Abundance. I love it for several reasons, but probably the biggest one is that my mom made it for me.  Oh, and it's one of my favorite fabric lines {I haven't mentioned that before, have I?}.

You have until next Friday, December 17th to enter and I'll announce the winner on Monday.  For a second entry, follow our blog and leave a comment that you are a follower!  If you e-mail address is not in your blogger profile, please leave it in your comment {feel free to write it jennie (at) cloverandviolet (dot) com} so we can contact you if you win.  Good luck!

  160. I made a little changing mat for my daughter when she was born and we have used it every single day for the 20 months she has been here. It doubles as a mini blanket, a blanket for her baby, and even a superhero cape! It has been the best use of a FQ ever!

  166. I love to make pettiskirts for my girls to dress up in. They are a lot of work because I do all of my gathering by hand but it is so worth it when their eyes light up everytime they put one on and dance around the house!

  184. I'm new to sewing but right now my favorite item is a skirt I made this summer out of some home dec Amy Butler fabric. It reminds me of summer and that's a good thing since I live in Minneapolis and we just got about 18 inches of snow over the weekend. So glad to have found your blog thanks to SMS. I'm totally getting inspired and picking up valuable sewing tips through bloggers like yourself! Thank you!!
