For August, the bag was the Fringed Hobo. Was it a great bag to sew? I have no idea, I did not make my bag. I was excited to use my fabrics for the bag and then, I was excited to do other things and that felt great. I will make my bag, I guess, I have everything ready to go. Enough about me and my lack of bag...
Fried Okra killed as usual...
Soul Sister re-purposed a skirt for her bag!
It makes me happy to see all of you who are completing the challenge! This month's bags all look great and they all have different spins on them--what great creativity you sewists have!
Congratulations on making your bag, everyone!
For August, The Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011 sponsors were:
Above All Fabric, who is awarding a $25 gift certificate!
Fat Quarter Shop, who is awarding a $50 gift certificate!
Now, let's announce the 2 winners for this month's challenge.
I used Random Number Generator to select the winners...
Now, you must SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO CLAIM YOUR GIFT CERTIFICATE. The first person who sends me a message gets to pick first, the second person gets the alternative gift certificate. You can reply to this post if you like, but you must send me a separate e-mail to claim your prize.
My address is jemelliahilfiger AT yahoo.com. I suggest copying and pasting it to get it correct.
If you have not e-mailed me within 7 days, I will draw for another winner.
Congrats to everyone who made a bag for the challenge, told someone about the challenge, or both!
A very big thank you to our August sponsors!
