March is gone and April is here, pardon my tardiness, I was busy and needed to finish my bags. I had some embellishment issues…
Marci's bags are citrusy, someone, make me a margarita!
Jjuniper's bags, I love that elephant:
Sarah's bags are sweet…
Bags from WildWags:
Robin's bags, all so different, all so great and not at all disappointing:
1 Pretty Bags:
Everyone (even if you are still working on your bags) should give yourself 3 pats on the back and have a pie with breakfast! Congratulations on making your bags, they were all great, by the way! This was not an easy task to complete, but you did it! You burned a hole in your zipper, but you did it! Oh, was that just me??
** If you are making the Origami Zipper Bags (from the book Style Stitches) and need some guidance, I made a quick sew-a-long right here. You can see my bag there. If you just want some inspiration, check out the SSMBC 2011 flickr group to see all of the bags submitted.
For March, The Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011 sponsors are:
Above All Fabric, who is awarding a $25 gift certificate!
Fat Quarter Shop, who is awarding a $50 gift certificate!
and Cabbage Rose Quilting, who is awarding a $30 gift certificate!
Now, let's announce the 3 winners for this month's challenge.
I used the James Henry Number Generator to select the winners…
Now, you must SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO CLAIM YOUR GIFT CERTIFICATE. The first person who sends me a message gets to pick first, the second person gets the alternative gift certificate. You can reply to this post if you like, but you must send me a separate e-mail to claim your prize.
My address is jemelliahilfiger AT yahoo.com. I suggest copying and pasting it to get it correct.
If you have not e-mailed me within 7 days, I will draw for another winner.
Congrats to everyone who made a bag for the challenge, told someone about the challenge, or both!
A very big thank you to our March sponsors!
I'll have April's bag post ready later today.
and here are my bags from March!
