810 market tote giveaway.

5.17.2010

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!***
I have good news and bad news.  The good news is I'm giving away a market tote in honor of Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!  The bad news is I ran out of time tonight to finish it!  Here's another market tote I've made recently so you know what they look like.
The winner will receive a tote just like this one except made in this pretty Nicey Jane fabric with a yellow linen base and lining. [edit: click here to see the finished tote!]
The market tote is perfect for grocery shopping, fabric shopping, really any kind of shopping.  It would also work wonderfully as a beach tote for summer!  

The winner will also get some precut fabrics to make another market tote as well!  A little Hope Valley and some chocolate brown linen.  
I'll be posting a tutorial for the market tote this week, so the winner will have everything they need to make a second market tote.

To enter, simply leave me a comment!  Be sure to include an email address for me to contact you at if it isn't linked in your profile.  International entries are welcome.

Followers of this blog get an extra entry, so leave a separate comment letting me know that you follow this blog. 

The giveaway will remain open until Thursday, May 20 at 11:59 pm Central time.

I will be picking a random winner on Friday morning!
