Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day: Tulip Tote

Hello there sewing fans!  Today is Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I'm so excited to share with you a little handbag I designed called the Tulip Tote.

It is a small, stylish little thing that is just big enough to swing on your forearm and carry the essentials.

The dimensions are about 7'' tall x 14'' wide x 4'' deep.  It has lovely Soft and Stable interfacing and a great boxed bottom which makes it stand up all on it's own.  It also has 2 magnetic snaps that keep the top closed snugly. (okay, the yellow handled one is slightly smaller than the other)

Today you get the chance to win ONE of these cute little handbags. Which one do you like best...yellow or navy? To enter the giveaway use the rafflecopter widget below and don't forget to tell me which bag you'd like to win. These are the prototypes for a pattern I'll be releasing and I am looking for some pattern testers to try it out.  So if you aren't a winner, perhaps you will consider being a pattern tester for me.   If you are interested please contact me at sarahmarkos(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know what kind of sewing experience you've had.

Thanks for joining me for giveaway day and Happy Sewing!

  43. I'd like navy. I would happily pattern test but this would be too complicated for me.......experienced beginner maybe? I've sewn for years but nothing more complicated than pillowcases, pjs and basic totes.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The yellow is quite lovely. I love that "scrunchiness" down the middle too! Very fun.

  78. The blue and yellow is my favorite, but the other has two pockets? Now that makes it a fair contender! This is a really cool style tote, and I would love to be a pattern tester (im just past "newb" experience) but I can't guarantee I have the time:(
