PATTERN GIVEAWAY No 2



Time to get another giveaway rolling!! This time the Lorraine Tote Bag pattern! This one is named for my mothers younger sister, my Aunty Lorraine. I was shopping with her the day conceived this bag. I made things challenging for myself and created 2 variations. (which of course meant extra writing!!!!)

 Style 2 is featured on the cover....it is the more challenging of the two styles with the addition of some nifty metal hardware.

Style 1 is pictured on the right and is quick and simple to knock together.

 For both I have used a large border style print, you know the kind you are loath to cut up as it is just so gorgeous!!  If all you have is scraps to work with, why not stitch together a panel and cut the outer bag from it....I really believe this is a versatile pattern that will let you explore your creativity. The bag is simple, so add to it with interesting piecing and emblishments!!

 So you know the drill, comment for your chance to win. I will draw this one on Sunday evening the 4th of December. Share with your friends and let me know for the double chance...and YES you can be in the draw for both patterns....LOL

Cheers

Lynda
