Here's to you! - *Summer Blooms Tote Bag Giveaway* - Closed


Happy blogiversary to me!  And here's to you for reading me for a whole year!!
I really have enjoyed blogging this past year - I had a lot of changes, and I feel like blogging really gave my life some consistency.  Those changes will continue this year, and I am looking forward to the steadiness of blogging and the fun of sewing and crafting with you!  Sooo, my dear readers, to thank you - I have made a tote bag that one of you will win!  

The giveaway will run from 3/8/11-3/15/11.  That's one week.  You have to check back to see if you won. 
I will not email you...check back.  I will announce the winner on Wednesday March 16th.  
Mark your calender.  Set an alarm on your phone.
So here's how you can enter:

1.  Leave a comment on any post for the next week.  
Old posts, new posts, doesn't matter.  The more comments you leave, the more times you are entered to win.  Plus, I love to hear your thoughts :)

2.  Become a follower of Sew Homegrown, if you are not one already. 
(please don't become a follower just for the giveaway - only if you really want to follow this blog)

3.  Blog about this giveaway, tweet, or post it on Facebook - leave me a comment here letting me know you did that. 

Three different ways to enter!

Here's a little more information about the bag - 
I made it using Heather Ross's Pattern for her  "Everything Tote".  
The outside is a soft, but sturdy linen and the inside is lined with silk plaid.  It has one pocket with two sections - one that will fit the Iphone or Smartphone.  

I reinforced the handle attachment point, because I really like to stuff my tote bags.  It would be the perfect bag for a Farmer's Market on a spring morning, or the fabric store on a Saturday afternoon.  

Good luck my sweet readers - I'm off to CA today - 
beautiful sunshine here I come!
xoxo
