A New Bag & A Giveaway

Before I went to visit my kids I finished testing the Rosie Patchwork Bag for Samantha over at http://handmadebymrsh.blogspot.de/2012/07/last-minute-call-for-pattern-testers.html
you can check out her bag there.

This is my bag made from her pattern.









It's been a long time since I've made a patchwork bag so had loads of fun making this one. It has a couple of slip pockets on one side on the inside and a zipper pocket on the other. Very versatile and you can choose to do any kind of patchwork you like or even leave it plain.

Now for the GIVEAWAY

Samantha is very kindly giving away a FREE Rosie Patchwork Bag pattern to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment here and I will pick a winner with Random.org.
The Giveaway starts from now an is open for a week. I will choose a winner on the 13th August.

NOTE 
Please leave your email with your comment so that I can reply to the winner. Some of you are on no reply or anonymous which means I can't get in touch with you. 

Nearly forgot. If you are not lucky enough to win a copy of the Rosie Patchwork Bag Pattern and would like to buy one you can go to Samantha's etsy at 

Samantha is giving a 15% discount to my lovely followers and friends, all you have to do to get your discount is type in the code:     NEWPATTERN15

Best of luck to all of you.
