You may recall that I have declared this long weekend ‘bag weekend’, I have many plans (probably half of which won’t come to fruition, but one has to have a dream, right?!), but I thought that it would be good to enable a bunch of you to become prospective bag ladies too, because misery great pleasure loves company…

You all know my great friend Sara, right?

Sara is the queen of bag making patterns, and since she got some super fancy pattern software thanks to a kickstarter campaign, she has been a pattern making fiend, coming out with 9 patterns this year alone in her own pattern shop.  Previously she’s been in several magazines, she’s a Pellon Project Artist, and, biggest news of all, she’s about to bring out a book this year!

I’ve enjoyed pattern testing for Sara in the past, so I know that you will love her patterns, and she’s going to give 3 of you the chance to win 3 patterns of your choice from her shop:

So what do you need to do to attempt to win these goodies?  Well Sara hasn’t given any restrictions, but although I’m not a fan of hoops for giving away my own crap goodies, I think you need to put in a bit of effort here, and I’m going to be super mean about sticking to the rules too, so no ‘pick me’, that will get you nowhere ;o)

1. Tell me what 3 patterns you would choose, and what fabrics you’d use  (1 entry)
