Sew LO Patterns GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

April 2, 2010

I remember the first time I sewed a purse. I think it was one of the earliest posts I wrote on Grosgrain. I followed a pattern and it came out so perfect and I received so many compliments it was totally worth the time I put into it. And when all my friends noticed my new purse, it gave me to opportunity to talk about sewing and brag:)

If you too would like to try your hand at a purse pattern, perhaps for the first time, take a look at today's guest giveaway from
Sew|LO!.

Lindsey Olson, pattern designer, and her sister Allie Olson, started
Sew|LO! out of a love to create. They create patterns for the modern sewer. Lindsey, an "architect in training" in Helena, MT, designs the patterns. Allie puts her finance expertise to work and manages all the business and marketing.

They are offering the Margo Tote pattern to THREE LUCKY GROSGRAIN READERS!


The Margo Tote is sweet and sophisticated, and entirely functional. Sew this stylish handbag with a convenient PDF sewing pattern!


The finished product created from this pattern will be completely lined with a reinforced magnetic closure. Two modern pleats and creative strap options give this tote a polished look.


Sew either a small or medium Margo tote, as this pattern allows for different sizes. The small Margo Tote is great for a night on the town, or a gal with a light load. The medium Margo Tote is perfect for an everyday tote.

Hi !

I discovered your blog and your creativity via the European Burda site. It's fantastic ! I also cutted into old sweaters, last year, to give them a new life and your extraordinary ideas push me to cut and transform more and more old ones !
