Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day!

Hi everybody! I'm new to craft blogging and after finding so many great blogs out there I've decided to participate in the Sew, Mama, Sew May Giveaway Day.




The giveaway officially starts tommorrow, May 27th and I will be accepting comment entries until May 31st. On June 1st I will select a winner from the comments. I will be shipping only to the USA for my first giveaway.

I really hope to get some new readers and followers of my blog as well as find more great blogs to read! I'm going to soon try my hand at making free tutorials for bags I've designed and a few other craft items I've been working on and will be sharing them on my blog. I have also linked to my new etsy shop, which will be getting more items in the near future.

For this May Giveaway Day I've decided to offer this cute Quilted List Taker!




This quilted list taker is fun and easy to make and was designed by Jennifer Casa - a tutorial is available at her etsy shop at jcasa.etsy.com.

So please feel free to leave a comment below to enter to win the quilted list taker! If you have any great blogs you maintain or love to read, share them with me in your comment. Please leave either a link to your blog or email so I can contact the winner! Good luck! =)
