May Day Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, I'm having my first giveaway. I'm part of the Sew,Mama,Sew! May Day Giveaway! I'm just so excited. I made a cute little purse with half a charm pack and 1 fat quarter. It's really cute. I designed it myself. I hope you all like it. It is a quilted purse. I used a lot of thread in this bag. But I like the effect it gives the bag. It has a zipper so that your belongings are nice and secure once inside and a nice long strap so that you can wear it across your shoulder. I used a button that I got at the local thrift shop. It was the perfect color and size. I'm also giving a Moda "Cotton Blossoms" charm pack with it. This is the same charm pack I used to make the bag. So how do you win this bag and charm pack?



1) Leave a comment on this post

2) Make sure that I can reach you, by leaving your email address or that I can link to you through your blog. If I cannot reach you, I will remove the entry and draw someone else.
