Giveaway Day is Here



*****This Giveaway is officially Closed*****
Winner will be announced at 9 am PST May 26, 2012
Sew Mama Sew has organized another Giveaway Day.
This is such a great way to find new to you blogs and maybe even win something, too.
This time I have made two things you can try to win.
The first is a set of three nesting fabric bowls using Nova's fabulous and easy pattern.
I used Essex linen in the putty color combined with the new line from Lu Summers, called Summerville.
I made the 4", 5" and 6" set and they nest just perfectly.
I can think of all sorts of reasons to make another set just for me.
I'm also offering you the chance to win the bag I made using
Michelle's pattern
You can see here that it is a nice, big roomy bag.

It would be like having two bags in one.  I used Malka Dubrawsky's A Stitch in Color fabrics.
The outside, pleated version, uses one of the sand dollar prints with a polka dot accent strip.
This is the outside view
and here is the inside view, using the "cheater fabric", which makes it look like it is pieced like a quilt.
The bag is completely reversible.


These creations come from a non-smoking home.

1. To win, just leave a comment telling me if you could visit any place in the world where would you go?

2. For a second chance to win, become a follower of my blog or tell me that you already do follow.

Entries must be in by May 25, 2012 at 5 pm. PST, and I will announce the winners at 9 am PST on May 26, 2012.

The winners will be chosen by Random Number Generator.
The first winner drawn will get first choice of which prize they want.
  
I will ship internationally.
If you are a no-reply commenter make sure to leave your email address in this format ylmommyx4(at)gmail(dot)com. No email address means I cannot tell you you have won.

*****This Giveaway is Officially Closed*****
Winner will be announced at 9 am PST May 26, 2012
Thanks for stopping by,
