Here is a picture of the fabric :



The giveaway includes:

As a reminder this is how our giveaway works:

  • we will provide you with next month's pattern (unless it's free)
  • we will provide you with some awesome fabric to make the pattern
  • we will do a short feature on our blog about you and your blog (if you have one)
What we ask of you:
  • we ask that you make the pattern in the month given with the fabric
  • we ask that you be an author on our blog for that month and make at least 4 posts during the month about your experience making the pattern.
  • you will need to get your own notions, interfacing etc...
Happy commenting and good luck!

  2. I would love to make this bag again, with some minor changes! I have the pattern and have made it once. I will make it a little larger with more pockets. Love the shape of the bag so I won't be touching that! Love your blog, keep up the good work.

  6. I am dying to try out that bag pattern.

    Plus, BLACK AND YELLOW! HELLO!

    Around here, January has been deemed The Worst Month of the Year (at least in my book!), so working some nice happy yellow and black fabric into a beautiful bag during the month would be a great pick-me-up!

  19. Don't include me in the giveaway please - since I just did the pillows (which I still haven't finished, what a bad guest blogger I am!) but I wanted to say that I'm THRILLED about this project. I've had the wasp bag bookmarked for at least a year - maybe two and have yet to make it. I am also in sever need of a new purse/bag so this is perfect timing - maybe I'll even get it done too. ;-)

  25. What a super fun homework assignment/giveaway! PS I loooooooooove that fabric, I have the same print in the tan/blue/green color and I made a dress out of the grey and yellow print that goes with it. I love JoAnn's 45" home dec prints.

  26. I saw this pattern a couple of days ago and decide that I was going to make one up for myself. This would totally cool to win! I have considered starting a blog, but do not have one as of yet. So, being a guest blogger for someone else would be a nice way to see if I like doing it.

  27. Gorgeous fabric and that bag is fantastic. Already of thinking of some fun options for the handle. I love that the original used a fun belt. Plus, I'd get to write about sewing. Sign me up!

  30. Here on Cape Cod, it's "hunker in" time, and we even had a white Christmas to start off the long indoor winter ahead. For me, that means -- finally! -- time to sew. That lovely yellow lining fabric is sure to warm up my sewing room, and while I agree that Alison's wasp bag pattern would be great for a diaper bag, I think I'll be dreaming of summer beach days to come...just give me and the Bernina the chance to let 'er rip!

    Buon natale and buon annu from Cape Cod and
