Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - Part 2 of 2 - Handmade

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED AT 178 COMMENTERS. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN A SEPARATE POST.

Hi again! I am continuing to celebrate Giveaway Day!


So, I thought I should give away something I made, since that's a bit more personal than some fabric that anyone could get (although you gotta love free fabric !).

I had grand plans and this is what I ended up having time for...

A super-cute bow clutch!
SMS-Giveaway-clutch

One small and cute bow clutch. Main fabric is from IKEA, the bow is Kona Caribbean. I mainly followed this tutorial from Prudent Baby, but assembled the clutch according to the Perfect Zip Bag pattern from Elizabeth Hartman. It is my go-to bag/pouch pattern - it always works well!


Would you like to win it? Here's how:
1) Leave a comment and tell me what is your favorite purse/bag pattern (could be one you've made or want to make). I've been wanting to make the Anna Maria Horner Art Student Tote...
2) Bonus entry for followers - just leave an extra comment saying you are.

Giveaway open to all and closes at 9pm Central European Time on May 10th. The winner will be selected at random and announced by May 12th.


I you also want to win som fabric, go to my previous post.
