IITBS--Giveaway From Sew Sweetness






Today's giveaway is brought to you by Sew Sweetness. Sara is the creative genius behind Sew Sweetness. The Sew Sweetness pattern shop offers a wide range of patterns for all levels of bag makers and each pattern is full of step by step instructions and photos to build your confidence and your skills. I started sewing Sara's bags right after I started sewing and being able to complete her bags gave me the confidence to keep going and make things I never thought I would have the skills to.



The Annex Double-Zip Box Pouch

The Emblem Duffle Bag



The Reisende Bag



In addition to her pattern shop, Sew Sweetness also offers high quality bag making hardware and the most amazing cork fabric!! Sara is also the author of two books: Big City Bags & Windy City Bags, a Craftsy instructor, has designed two fabric lines for Art Gallery Fabrics and is the co-organizer of Sew Pro.

Sara is a creative rock star! Despite all the time she puts into designing, teaching and organizing, Sara is ALWAYS willing to help out anyone who has questions or comments about her patterns or products and is so encouraging and helpful to everyone! Her blog is full of tips, tricks and tutorials for bag making and beyond and for the past several years she has hosted Purse Palooza, which is a fun event in which features pattern reviews and giveaways throughout the entire month!

You can follow Sara on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and join the Sew Sweetness Patterns group on Facebook for inspiration or support.

For today's giveaway Sara is offering.....(drumroll please)........ a 5 pack of Paper Patterns of her latest releases:  The Annex Double Zip Box pouch, The Tortoise Bag, The Reisende bag, The Emblem Duffle and one yet to be announced.


Also Sara is offering her Craftsy class, Building Better Bags







This class is designed to take all the mystery out of choosing and using various interfacings and stabilizers. She can show you the right materials to get the results you want. This is a perfect class for anyone who want better and more predictable results from their bags and interfacings. 


One lucky winner will receive Sara's Craftsy class and a 5 pack of paper patterns of her latest patterns.

I need to check out that double zip pouch. I feel like I've mastered the boxy pouch style, so adding a double zip will be a new challenge!

Pressing is so important to the finished appearance and, although I always do it I think I've realised I don't always press it quite enough, one quick press just isn't always enough to set in shapes properly. Thanks for the advice.

Greg, Kari, Abby, Taylor and Ben said...

Awesome -- thanks!

Marci Girl said...

I guess we are supposed to comment on this post but I'm actually commenting about Bree's very thorough and helpful post! She gifted me with one of those pens but I never thought of using it on those interior zippers, genius! Also very generous giveaway from Sara!

I might get stoned for saying this, but I love inserting zippers. After the disaster of my first lapped zipper attempt, I've made those babies into my best friends.
