The Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge is going well, so many lovely bags! The Style Stitchers are such great sports and are still submitting their bags from Chapter 1. I find it remarkable that there are people sticking with what they started and completing it.
Here are a few new Cosmo Bags that joined the group:
From Myrinda of Fabric Hound:
There are more bags, but, I have to talk about something else today…
I have a Style Stitches by Amy Butler to give away!
I wanted to have the book give-away before the challenge started but, the book became back-ordered! So, anyhow, thanks to Chronicle Books, I finally have a book to give away to one lucky winner!
If you would like to participate in the challenge and do not own the book, leave a comment on this blog post!
Since I'm footing the shipping bill, U.S. residents only, please!
** I really think that a person that is SERIOUS about participating in the challenge (and without the book, obviously) should leave a comment. We will start with zippers next month, so, be prepared to get started soon! You may preview all of the projects at Amy Butler Design's website.
I will randomly pick a winner on 1 March 2010. You should check back on this blog to see if you have won.
I will announce the book winner with the 2 winners from February's challenge, that post will be full of inspiring pictures from this month!
If you need, read about the challenge right here. There are great incentives for participating, read about them on the initial post. If you are new to sewing (bags or anything) there is a little community in the Flickr group if you have any questions about a project and I am doing some sew alongs for some of the projects. Well, that's all of the convincing that I feel like doing tonight. Good luck to you all!
Here's a shot of the book up for grabs in my bag that I created for February:
