Needlework Bag Kit Give-Away



I pulled this out a month or so ago for a future give-away. No time like the present time!

This is the Needlework Bag pattern by Pat Sloan. I purchased this back some time in the early '00s. I know it was that long ago because I bought it from The Quilted Garden, which is now The Quilted Crow, back when Marianne owned it. Some of you historians should be able to date it.

It's an interesting kit. It has roughly two yards total fabric, ribbons, a neat button, and other stuff to complete the bag - prairie cloth, ticking, a piece of linen. I don't think the floss is included and I didn't check to see if a Velcro fastener is in there, but if they're not, that's all you'll need to pick up to complete the project. There's obviously a little applique and some stitchery involved but I think it's a really cute needlework bag.

Let's make this a short give-away. I'll do the drawing on Tuesday night, 12/7/10, when I get home from work which is usually by 7:30 p.m. My internet connection here at the Quilting Condo has serious issues (grrrr....), and I'm scheduled for *another* tech to come out today. If for some reason I don't post the drawing winner Tuesday night, you'll know why. But it'll be posted by the next morning.

Nothing special about the comment you need to leave this time. Just make sure it either links back to your blog or you give your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner.

AND don't forget the "lagniappe" prize for the winner if she/he has that extra little something special I'm watching for in their comment or on their blog! Hmmm.....

Good luck to everyone!

What a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win. Hope you have a Merry CHristmas. I keep looking back at your dog in the pink coat and it makes me laugh. My kids keep buying our beagle coats and hats and costumes and he hates them. When you put the hat on, he just lies on the floor like it is too heavy.

Melanie said...

OK - throw my name in the hat.... I may live in Michigan...but every Christmas we read the Cajun night before Christmas... My "Youper" kids have it memorized complete with the cajun drawl-- I know you can completely relate.....and I realize that you know in your heart that when Santa crosses the Sabine river he really trades reindeer for alligators just like in the book photos.... I may not win--- but at least you're smiling now.....

What a cute bag. Some things never go out of style no matter when you bought them. This looks like a good take-along stitchery project. Thanks for the chance to win.

I have always wanted to make some bags for myself and others, this would be a great way to learn.

thanks for the opportunity to win this cute kit. Alligators, a red-nosed one ?!? And silly me, I thought LA was for a city not a state. lagniappe tipped me off too - yes, I'm blond. So each year I look for a unique, but not too complicated, treat for the kids to make for the holidays. Saw on one the girls blog an oreo dipped halfway in almond bark then sprinkles added, yummmm, maybe a little peppermint in the almond bark.

Vicky said...

You're right on both counts about LA being a city and a state. I'm from Louisiana but live in LA now. So my blog name will work when I retire back home!

Becky said...

Hope that you solve your internet problems! Our modem is giving me "fits". I have to reset it daily. I just don't have it in me at this time to call Tech support. Rusty said to tell Penny, "Hello." He is currently snoozing. I had my book club at our house today. Rusty is exhausted from this event:)

dianne said...

i shoulda known that you would speak Cajun - a little extra is never expected, but always appreciated, eh?

Oh I remember the Quilted Garden...I have a BO from Marianne which is still all gathered in the box awaiting my attention. I don't need another project, I'm just saying Hi! Thanks for the though though.

That would be perfect for holding my current x-stitch project. I so enjoy reading your blog & vicariously drool over all the material/kits you find. Plus being a dog person that makes you my kind of gal, we have 3 fur kids that rule our life.
Happy holidays to you & your family. Thank you for being so generous & good hearted. Love to win that kit.
