Happy Monday to you! Thought I’d drop in today to let you know about a fun tour making the rounds right now. As you might know, it’s Canada’s 150th birthday on July 1st – and some amazing bag-makin’ ladies decided to make a tour out of the occasion.

You probably know by now how much I love featuring Canadian content – so I’m pleased to say this tour features all Canadian pattern designers, bloggers, sewists and even some Canadian tartans! (Which I just found out actually exist – so cool!)

Visit Emmaline Bags for all the details, tour stops and to enter to win some great prizes. Each tour stop has a giveaway of its own – plus there’s a huge Grand Prize to be won!

Today’s tour stops include Sew Far North, and she was kind enough to make my Forest Glen Satchel pattern as part of the tour! In fact, she even made a test version first – so now she’s made two! #bonus Her tester version (above and below) is impeccably sewn with lovely rose fabrics and photographed on a Canadian-appropriate snowy background. LOL

I can’t wait to see her final bag – she sent me the moose photo above as a teaser on Saturday and I thought I’d share it with you! Head over to her blog to see more hear her take on the pattern and enter for your chance to win it too!

Happy Birthday CanadaSherri
