Giveaway

I just realized a few days ago that I’ve recently passed a few milestones, and thought ‘Oh, shucks, it’s too late to celebrate with a give-away’, and just simply planned to watch for the next milestone.
What milestones have I passed – you may well ask!  Well – blogiversary # 2 was on Dec. 7 – my birthday was in November - post # 200 was on Oct 10.  All of these went right over my head as I continued creating and blogging.
Well, this morning I’ve found my opportunity!

Somehow I missed the notices for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway.  But a quick note to Beth and she has kindly allowed me to join in the fun!

So what do I want to give away!  Recently I made this bag:64.Bag
It was a fun project – and actually has already been given away (to one of my sisters).  But I will make another one – it has two main pockets, plus small pockets inside and out.  This one was made with some fun black-and-whites, and Loralei prints – the one I’ll make will be suited to the winner!
So how do you win one:
Simply leave a comment telling me your favorite color and your style-sense (elegant, funky, casual….).           I won’t ask you to ‘like’ on Facebook, or advertise on your blog, or become a follower – but if you choose to do any of these, that would be wonderful.  Just be sure that I can contact you if you do win – I’ll send to anywhere in Canada or the US.  Contest closes on Friday, so I'll draw on Saturday the 18th.   Good luck.

Oh, and do follow the link above to Sew, Mama, Sew and check out all the give-aways - there are hundreds of them - and I'd love to hear about your winnings!
Happy contest!     Blessings, Peg

  2. What a delightful bag. I am a mix between casual and elegant ;-) My favorite colors would be pink and blue, not necessarily together. But either one of those colors goes great with brown! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  3. Peg this is truly wonderful of you to have such a terrific giveaway at this very busy time of year. I would definitely love to win the bag. My favorite color would probably be blues, coral, peach,mint green, hmmmm I'm not sure I like many colors and I guess I would be considered casual and sometimes whimsical.

  43. My 30 year old son recently asked me to help him find a "masculine" diaper bag for his first child & my first grandboy! I love the style and shape of this bag and think it would work well for what he's looking for. Of course, the colors would need to be "adjusted" to suit his tastes. And you could start a trend with them! I would leave the fabric choices to you as you can "see" what works best. Thank you for such a lovely bag. Tina
