Dahlia Drawstring Duffle Bag Pattern Release and Giveaway

As expected, I did have a delay in getting the Dahlia bag pattern listed in my pattern shop but it is finally there and ready to go. To celebrate this pattern release, I have decided to give away the 2 sample bags I created!

First I have this lovely bag in a beautiful Anna Maria Horner velveteen:

It turned out perfectly except that I should have used a lighter weight fabric for the drawstring closure so unfortunately it does not close completely as I would have liked.

The second sample bag is this one in a canvas print with birds on branches. This one turned out great except for one slight problem - my needle became damaged and pulled some threads a bit when I sewed the casing. But it honestly hardly shows at all - especially when the drawstring opening is closed. And it does not affect the bag's durability or functionality.

If you are interested in either of these bags, just enter a comment below. There is no need to follow my blog but if you do, leave a 2nd comment so I can count you for an additional entry. This giveaway will end tomorrow night at 9 PM EDT and winners will be posted here and on my Facebook page.
