Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for On the Go Bags—15 Handmade Purses, Totes & Organizers by Lindsay Conner and Janelle MacKay (Stash Books). The book is available this month at CTPub.com and January 7th on Amazon! Add it to your holiday wishlist now, and comment below for your chance to win a copy! I took a peek at the book and it’s full of so much goodness. There are 15 clever projects designed for the girl on the go. UPDATE: Thank you for all your comments. A random winner was selected. Congratulations to Barbara! Thanks again to all your comments!
One of my favorite projects, is the Hipster Pocket Scarf. My friend and co-auther of the book, Lindsay, made one for me in my Heart knit fabric. For a couple of years, I ran long distance. (Hello, fellow half marathoners!) Running in the 40 degree weather was my ideal weather. I would be close to freezing when I started out, but by mile 4 or so I’d start shedding excess layers. This pocket scarf would have been perfect to hold my keys and other essentials. Although I’m not running any more, it’ll be perfect for those day when I don’t want to carry a purse or jam things in my pocket. The book includes projects for beginners to more advanced sewers. There’s also all sorts of truly unique projects to help us stay organized! Enjoy the preview below and be sure to enter the giveaway below!
Lindsay and Janelle are offering one copy of the book to one of my blog readers. The giveaway will end 12/15. U.S. winner will receive a hard copy, and winner outside the U.S. will receive an e-Book.
