Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Before I announce the winner of the tote bag giveaway, I wanted to thank everyone that participated. The response was much more than I had anticipated, and I am glad everyone liked the bag. Because I believe you are all winners, I am going to invite everyone to join in a sew-along with me to make your own tote bag. I will provide a free pattern (pdf download), a step-by-step tutorial with pictures, and any other assistance or advice you may need. All you have to do is leave a comment, and I will email you the list of supplies and pattern. I know many of you are thinking, "I don't really know how to sew," or, "I don't sew very well." That is exactly why I am going to help you, and I promise it will be easy! Please, please, PLEASE don't count yourself out. Grab your family, friends, neighbors, etc... and let's all do this together. You just need access to a sewing machine and it's okay if you have to share. All you need to do is sew one stitch at a time.

Leave a comment at the end of this post with your email address, and I will help you get started!!!
