Kicking Off the Season

My friend Becky once said that she feels like she’s not a “real” mom unless she makes her children’s Halloween costumes. I feel the same way about Christmas presents. If you are so inclined, you should check out the tutorials under Sew, Mama, Sew‘s Homemade Holidays label. (However, if you are on my giftee list, you should not check out the tutorials). And if you are a regular reader or here from Sew, Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day, I’ll cut to the chase.

I love these bags, created from an online tutorial. They are a beautiful alternative to plastic grocery sacks and even store-brand poly sacks, and hold about 3 times as much as well. I keep a stack in my car and one folded up in my purse. I’m giving away a set of two coordinating cotton bags:

To be entered to win these, simply leave a comment here. Be sure to include your e-mail address so that I can contact you. I’ll choose a winner randomly, and I’ll ship to Canada and within the U.S.  I’ll leave comments open for this contest until December 6th.

  5. I made myself one of those bags from some fabric I had left from a sheet that I just loved. The bag finally wore out because I used it as my diaper bag. I stuck the bag away though because I love the fabric. I love both those bags, but especially the butterflies–so pretty!
    Thanks for the giveaway!
