With Day 9, we’re getting close to the end of our 13 days of giveaways, but you still have a few chances to win! The lucky winner of yesterday’s giveaway of a fun apron kit designed by guest Sharon Madsen is Carol A.! Congratulations, Carol–please check your email so we can send your prize!
Today we’re highlighting another fabulous episode of Sew it All, Season 7! The lovely Caroline Hulse of the great sewing blog SewCaroline.com is featured on Episode 705, “Chevron Chic,” demonstrating how to make an adorable chevron-pieced tote bag from pretty solid-color fabrics. Really, who doesn’t love a tote bag–especially one this cute!
Caroline has just recently introduced her first PDF pattern on her blog: the Out and About Dress. So exciting! It’s a must-have dress, perfect for about a million different occasions, and also very simple to stitch up in a comfy knit fabric. I can’t wait to make one myself! She enlisted several other great sewing bloggers to test the pattern and make an Out and About dress of their own, so be sure to check them out! Caroline’s generously providing the pattern as the prize for one lucky winner of today’s giveaway.
