Because...

I have been so fortunate this week with gifts, exchanges, and giveaways. I want to "pay it forward" and have a giveaway of my own. Since I received so many nice compliments on the project bag I sent to Becky as part of my Valentine's exchange, I will have a drawing for two of them.Isn't this fabric fun?! It just makes me smile and I hope it will make you smile too. This bright paisley is a medium size bag measuring around 7"x10". It would be a great size for those smalls you are stitching or for a small applique or hand sewing project.


This large bag measures 9"x13" and uses a vintage look Wizard of Oz Fabric. I like this size to kit up projects, even the larger ones. Then when I am ready to work on that project, it is all here in one place. I remember watching the Wizard of Oz every year when it came on the television and when I saw this fabric I just had to have it.

Of course you can use these for anything you want. I made one for a friend and she pops it in her suitcase when she travels to hold little odds and ends.

If you are interested in winning one of these bags, just leave a comment on this post. I will draw a name this Wednesday evening and get it on it's way to you. The first name drawn will be for the large bag and the second name drawn will be for the medium bag.

Good luck! Thanks for visiting my blog and all your lovely comments. :o)
