Giveaway Day!!!

Hello everyone! Today is Giveaway Day! Not just here on our blog but on lots of others too.  SewMamaSew is hosting this fun event where everyone with a shop or a blog can link up an item that they would like to giveaway. Which means there are A LOT of other things you can win around blogland.  The giveaways are open for one full week so you can take your time browsing around and getting to know other fun blogs too. Want to see what we're giving away today??  The Mini Tulip tote PDF Pattern!

This stylish little tote is the size of a small handbag. It is perfect for when you just want to carry the essentials.  It has a wide base so it stands up by itself. The top opens up wide and stays closed snugly with 2 magnetic snaps. There are 2 pockets on the inside to organize your small items. It's quite roomy despite it's small size. The handles are sized to hang on your forearm, but you can lengthen them if you’d like. My favorite thing about the tulip tote is the ruching on the sides. I just love the texture it creates.


This pattern features 18 pages of instructions with step by step photos, as well as 2 pattern sheets with printing instructions. Finished Dimensions are 7” tall X 14'' wide X 4'' deep with 16’’ handles. For more details about this pattern, check out my full Mini Tulip Tote post.

Want to win the Pattern?  Just leave a comment telling me your favorite thing to do with your free time.  I'd love it if you'd follow me or "Like" me on Facebook too, but it's not required to enter.

  6. If I have just a little time, quiet coffee is my favorite way to spend it. If the free time is longer, I either binge watch my current favorite show with my husband or take a walk.
