In my effort to downsize a little bit (see post below), I've decided to give away one of my bags! This is the very first bag I ever made, and the acanthus bloom (from Amy Butler's Belle line) is one of my all-time favorite fabrics. It has hardly been used at all, just a handful of times, so it's in like-new condition.
The inside is lined with a fun pink and green polka-dot print. I used a pattern for this bag, since I had no idea what I was doing yet (I think it was a Simplicity pattern, one I bought so long ago it is now out of print). After I learned how to construct this one I started fiddling with my own techniques and patterns to come up with the kind of bag I commonly sew now.
Anyway, this lovely acanthus bag can be yours! Just leave a little comment with a favorite holiday memory or tip or whatever you'd like, and on December 23rd I'll randomly draw the lucky winner and mail your new bag to you. Happy commenting, and good luck!
