Hello Green Bag Lady!

I've been browsing your website and I must say I LOVE it! It has so many useful tips, I do not know where to start! I just downloaded your pattern, I would like to try to make my own GREEN BAGS!! WOOHOO!! Thank you Sew Mama Sew for the referral!

I've been following Sew Mama Sew for about a month now (I'm a newbie to the blog world and sewing). I have found many of the tutorials extremely useful especially the ones that show HOW TO insert grommets, how to hand sew, which needles to use for which fabric, and all of the quilting basics.

The one tutorial that I would love to try (goodness too many to choose) is the pretty blouse (http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2011/06/summer-sewing-the-pretty-blouse/).

Thank you very much for the fabulous giveaway! The bags are all "sew" beautiful. #17,000 is absolutely awesome! They are my daughter's favorite colors this would be nice to win for her since she's leaving for college next Thursday!

Wow, there are so many great tutorials, it's hard to choice just one! (and all of those bags are just adorable too!)I think though I would have to go with Diapering Sewing 101 as this is something I've been trying to learn for awhile now. I have two little ones in diapers so it would be very helpful.....I've been wanting to start cloth diapering for some time! My e-mail address is: chrislaurie@gmail.com

I LOVE Sew Mama Sew. I think the next tutorial I want to try will be one of the reusable lunch bags for my kiddo. Or maybe the wrap skirt....

Just popped over from SMS, what a fab thing you are doing. I've already used lots of tutorials from SMS they are great.
Next on my list to try is how to modify pants for babies and kids.

Those bags are fabulous! Especially the one you highlighted.
SMS tutorials are all so handy for a beginning sewer like me. But as I love bags(I have a family of all boys, but there are 5 or 6 different handbags in the hall...), I'd love to make this one: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2010/09/free-amy-butler-pattern-blossom-handbagshoulder-bag/

I love Sew Mama Sew! I would really like to try the laptop bag (talk about cute fabric!) and would definitely like to learn how to applique. The spring ruffle top is super cute too (I've had my eye on that since last year). So many to choose from!

I seriously love your bags! So much more fun and stylish than the ones grocery stores try to sell you. As far as tutorials, I'm going to have to visit the binding tutorial to finish a quilting project soon. I also enjoy the Elizabeth Hartmann tutorials sew mama sew posts.

For me it is a toss up between the ruffled top, which is super fashionable, or the mug rug, which I would use every day!

I want to make the birdie garland and the reversable tote, both are on my to-do list. :) dvdenter(at)gci(dot)net

Aracellyd said...

The first tutorial that caught my eye was the magic tube turning trick tutorial. I have spent tons of time trying to turn straps right side out. But, now I have an easy way.

I love the bags!!

I love bag #17,000! Your silhouette applique is so stinkin' sassy! :)

nitr012 said...

I'm beginning my adventure with sewing machine so tutorials here are my everyday lecture. I'm hoping to try "How to Machine Applique" on my new pillows, and after that i will definitely "Add a Zipper to a Pillow". Right now I'm struggling with a lack of time for shopping new materials but I think a new Green Bag would be a GREAT help and motivation.

I've tried many of the sew mama sew tutes including a heart pillow, the cutest scottie dog ever by Denise Schmidt and a number of bags and pillows. Still on my list are the doodle pillow, and insulated picnic tote, a wallet to tote, the spring chicken and prudent baby's sleep shorts as well as a dorm laundry bag. They're a great source of inspiration.

Well, I have a whole bunch of tutorials from SMS saved in my "to do" files, so how would I pick one? There was a cool laptop bag featured today, and there was a neat beach bag featured earlier in the summer. Those come to mind. And, Green Bag Lady, you are amazing! Thanks for your continued generosity. I have 2 of your bags already that I use regularly.

There are so many SMS tutorials that I want to try, it's hard to pick just one. The laptop bag that was posted today is going near the top of my to do list.
