Giveaway - BoHo Bag Kit.....

I finished my tutorial a couple weeks ago and forgot to post about it.... To celebrate I'm doing a giveaway for one of my BoHo bag kits.  Just leave a comment on this post and the drawing will be November 3rd....

This kit includes a  piece of high quality, home-decor focal fabric approx. 18 x 30"   plus:
•  12 coordinating pieces of   fabric large enough for 2-4 patches each and a variety of textures, sheens, colors, and patterns.
•   Various lengths of coordinating gimps and cording.
•   4 lengths of various fringes suitable for use on pocket or flap might including  2 chainettes, 1 tasseled, and 1 bullion
•   1 piece of fancy beaded fringe suitable for use on pocket or flap.
•   1 long piece of coordinating fabric suitable for a handle or for extra pieces.
•   AND a surprise piece of lace or two  .

Not only did I finish the tutorial for my kind of bag but Pat Winter just published her book on BoHo Fever...which is available in print or digital version at http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/288760/follow 


And I have about 1/2 dozen kits available on my Esty site... http://www.etsy.com/shop/olderrose

Hi Gerry,

Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fantastic give-away! By the way, my grandson loved the button -- he actually wanted to keep it, and, of course, I said no. I think it was the first time I denied one of his requests!
Hope all is well with you and your family. Warmest regards, Marilyn

Cathy said...

Well, I've got my kit already and got it started using tips from both your tutorial and the bag I currently carry (messenger type) and love. Thank you for the tutorial and giveaway. I'm up to making a second one if I win the giveaway!
