Out of Africa FREEBIE!

An employer of Big Girl gave her a stack of great fabric. She collected it years ago on a trip to Africa. Of course, whatever she was going to make out of it never came to fruition and years later it landed on my sewing table. Good for us! Wonderful African fabric for 22 bags.

To enter to win a BAG (open to everyone, world-wide):
•LEAVE A COMMENT, IN THE COMMENT LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THIS FORMAT: name(at)something(dot)com it is important to spell out DOT and AT so you don't get spam, if you DO NOT leave an email address, you will not be entered in the freebie.

•DEADLINE FOR THE FREEBIE IS 9pm (PST) Tuesday, Jan. 3 (winners will be notified no later than Wednesday Jan 4 via email and here on the blog so CHECK BACK!)

Don't forget to leave us your email! We will only contact you if you win. 

We will randomly pick 22 people to win these folk art bags.

One entry per person. If you enter more than once, all your entries will be disqualified.

My daughter lived in Africa for 4 years when she was in the Peace Corps, from 1997 to 2001. So I would really really really like to win one of these bags for her!

Hi Teresa, Happy New Year! Absolutely love these fabrics, so cute!! Thanks so much for the pattern, have just spent all my birthday money buying fabric to make a bunch of these bags! They'll be donated to our local animal shelter/rescues (filled with goodies) to go home with newly adopted pets!

Oh, those are beautiful! I used your bag pattern to make bags to carry Christmas gifts & potluck supper contributions in this year, leaving the bags with my hosts as a hostess gift. See how you are inspiring the world? :)

Teresa, this is such a great thing you have started and I have seen its impact in my local community, too. More women are making more bags and passing them on to moms, sisters and alike. Thanks so much, I would be honored to have one of your bags!
