So, to enter to win Linda’s Bag Pattern, answer the following question in the comments section below: What’s your favorite type of bag to sew?

Do you like to make super easy, big slouchy bags? They’re great for beach bags and all-day totes. Or do you like making smaller, super structured purses? They’re more challenging, but can yield a polished, professional-looking bag.

Let us know your thoughts, and check the Creative Machine Embroidery blog tomorrow to see if you won, and enter to win ANOTHER prize!

Good luck and happy sewing!

    I’m just learning to sew, so I keep it simple. And since I’ve already learned to hoard remnants (that didn’t take long) … I make simple, unstructured lined shoulder bags. My next bag project is a messenger bag with canvas though… excited and scared all at the same time.

  2. Bonnie R says:

    I like making totes as gifts, since they’re quick and simple :) This would be a great pattern to win – our current reusable shopping bags are falling apart and I just promised my husband I’d make some new ones…afer the girls’ first day of school dresses, Halloween costumes, Christmas dresses… ha!
