Fun Things Coming Up...

'Allo! I decided that what I needed right now was to take on more work because feeling overwhelmed is fun (they really need to invent a sarcasm font). But it's a good kind of overwhelmed--fun fabrics to twiddle around with, a few giveaways, a sew-along (because that's more fun than saying 'a big tutorial'). So I figured I'd pop in and let you know what you have to look forward to.

First--remember the two-week giveaway extravaganza known as Spring Fling? Weelllllll, several of us had such a good time that we decided to do something similar to usher in the summer. The Summer Daze giveaway event will be running from June 6-10, and will be hosted by the delightful Krista at While He Was Napping. I've got an idea or two rolling around in the ol' noggin, and hopefully once I get stitching they'll come out as adorable as they are in my brain right now.

Second--Sew Mama, Sew is having a giveaway day on May 23rd. I just sent off my email asking them to sign me up, so I'll have a little something for that too. I love doing giveaways, so I'm excited to have a few coming up. And who doesn't like free stuff?

Third, last year I posted this bag I had made. Someone showed me a picture of what they wanted, and I sketched and drew and measured and cursed until I had it just right. I've made several of these bags since then, and it is so versatile depending on the fabric choice. I've been asked for the pattern (which right now is a scribbly piece of papery mess) or a tutorial. I've been a naughty bloggy buddy and have been completely remiss in providing either of these. A large part of the problem was electronifying :) my pattern pieces. But now that I've got that all sorted out (I hope), I'm going to be posting a mega-tutorial for this bag, and I'd like you to make it along with me! There are so many options--zippers, snaps, pockets, rings, purse feet, etc. - I'll let you know what's needed and what's optional. I'll hopefully be able to post the pieces for the smaller size as well. I'm hoping to get this going in June. Details will be coming your way soon.

EEEEEEKKKKK! So excited about all this stuff! Or, should I say sew excited, bwahahahaha? I hope you'll pop back in for these fun events!
