WOW! We got an awesome response to our Day 9 Giveaway for Bags in Bloom: Create 20 Unique Flower Purses with Simple Embroidered Stitches and Easy-to-Sew Patterns. You all must be as bag-crazy as we are!The lucky winner is…drum roll, please…Linda! Here’s Linda’s great answer: “I tend to make the huge bags and totes. Since I am a grandma that watches the grandbabies, I am always toting around diapers, wipes, food and toys in addition to all the regular stuff a lady needs. Sometimes when I am shopping I will delve into my bag and pull out a toy or something for a mischievious tyke that a mom needs help with. ”
Congratulations, Linda, and thanks to everyone for participating! We’d love to see pictures of the bags you’ve made, so post them to our Facebook wall if you’d like to share.
