It’s Giveaway Day!

MayGiveawayDay

As promised last week, I’m participating in Sew, Mama, Sew’s May Giveaway Day today.  I’m posting this before they have the list of participants up, but it sounds like there are hundreds…so get comfy.  If you’re visiting me for the first time because you found me on that list, welcome!  If this whole Giveaway Day thing is news to you, enter to win here, then visit Sew, Mama, Sew’s blog and enter a bunch of others too!

Now for the important part – the giveaway.  I had a tough time choosing what it would be, but finally landed on a Ninja Monkey Bag.  I hadn’t made one in a while and had a summery piece of Michael Miller fabric that was perfect for it.

May Giveaway Day 1

I used another Michael Miller, black with white polka dots, for the inside, because you just can’t go wrong with polka dots.  Or black and white.  Or Michael Miller.

May Giveaway Day 3

I made a fabric flower for the outside, rounding the points of the petals so they matched the print.

May Giveaway Day 2

Because I was limited by the amount of fabric I had, the handles are a bit shorter than usual.  The entire purse, as shown, measures about 27” from the knot in the handle to the bottom of the bag.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post.  That’s it.  Saying something nice won’t improve your chances of winning, but it will make my day better.  I will ship anywhere, so feel free to enter whether or not you’re in the U.S.  You have until 11:59 pm, Pacific time, on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 to enter.  On Thursday morning I will randomly draw a winner from the comments and notify that person via email.

Thanks for visiting, good luck on this entry and all your others, and enjoy Giveaway Day!

  3. Wow, that’s an awesome combo of a really bright print with the polka dots. I’m not usually a fan of polka dots, but I think it really comes together in a nice way. Plus, I can see using this in the winter (as I usually use darker purses in the winter) as a fun way of still embracing the bright colors. Beautiful creation!

  11. Wow, this bag has MY name on it! I love black and white and I love polka-dots. And do you know what makes it even better? The fact that it’s already made and “I” don’t have to do the work! So please, please pick me.

  18. Oh my goodness that fabric is so adorable! I really want to win this one! And hey no worries about the length…my first thought when I saw what you were giving away was “that would be a perfect gift for my little niece’s birthday” When I read the length it was even more perfect!

    Have a happy day!

  20. I LOVE your careful attention to detail! It is wonderful that you not only thought to add the flower, but that you altered its shape so that it would be just right. I also like the way the inside lining coordinates with the outside. Beautifully done!

  21. What could enlighten your day ? Maybe the thought of a french girl, late in the night, who sits in her sofa trying to imagine you hanging the bag on such a little branch and wondering how light the bag must be not to break it !
