October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as part of that, ByAnnie has come up with the Breast Cancer Initiative, which you can read all about here.

For my part in the blog hop I made the large version of ByAnnie’s Out And About Bag, the perfect size handbag for those of us who can’t be doing with traditional handbags and can’t fit everything in their pockets. This is one of the patterns that comes with a set of video tutorials to walk you through the various stages just in case you’re more of a visual person than a written instructions person, just enter the code you find inside your pattern.

Win A Stiletto & Pressing Tool

This pattern is loaded with pockets made using fabric, mesh and foldover elastic, and one of my favourite tools to use when bag making is the ByAnnie’s Stiletto & Pressing Tool, which holds everything in place as it slides under the needle, even the slippery elastic and stretchy mesh:

You can enter to win a By Annie Stiletto & Pressing Tool of your own if you leave me a comment telling me either which pattern you would like to use it for from ByAnnie.com OR tell me a resource you’ve found useful for breast cancer information that is not in this post. Entries close at midnight 01/11/21.

The #SewPink Initiative was created by ByAnnie.com LLC to raise awareness for breast cancer throughout the year. Our efforts culminate in an annual blog hop during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote self-care, awareness, early detection, and support for those affected by breast cancer.
