Genevieve Bag Pattern Giveaway Winner

Today's the day I announce the winner of this beautiful bag pattern by Christine at ChrisW Designs.
I know it will be morning in some parts of the world where you're from but here it's 7.15pm and my internet is very unreliable so I'm going to post before something happens and I can't get on.

I also want to mention that Christine is now selling the hardware kits for her Genevieve Bag and other bags too. You can check them out here at her etsy shop.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by to leave a comment, of all the bag giveaways I've done to date this has been the one with the most comments. I also want to say hello to my newest followers, thanks to you and all my followers for your support. Without you this blog wouldn't be much fun.

Ok time to announce the winner.

The winner is:

Bethany who commented

I'll forward your email to Christine and she'll send the pattern to you. Bethany also has a blog Sweet Bee Buzzings and at the moment is doing a bag sew along which I'm taking part in. Pop over and join in.

For those of you who didn't win don't despair because Liz at Moments also tested the Genevieve Bag for Christine and she is having a giveaway for the pattern on her blog. The giveaway is open until 26th April so you still have time to go over and leave a comment and even better is that Liz is giving you three chances to win.

If you can't wait that long to get your hands on the pattern then  to go over to Christine's pattern shop here where you can purchase the PDF pattern for this or any other of her bags.

Lastly you may have noticed I've managed to put up the Random Generator number up on my blog. In the past I just gave the name of the winner. Thanks to Karen at Sew Many Ways who has a tutorial I was able to figure it out. If you want to know how to show the Random Generator number also or want to know more about blogging Karen has some great tutorials that you can find here.

Thanks to everyone for taking part and a special thanks to Christine for letting me be her tester and offering the pattern for the giveaway.

  4. YAY congratulations Bethany!!

    I use the random number generator to pick which project I'll work on next - I have a lot of zipper bags (surprised? LOL!) kitted ready to work on, so I use the generator to decide which bag to grab to sew :D
