Happy Monday to You! Today marks the beginning of the 11th Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I’m excited to be participating this year. I took some time over the weekend to make up a cute mini tote bag! It’s handmade by me and I would love to keep it… but I love giveaways and appreciate my readers even more (Thank You!) so I’m giving it away! And… even if you don’t win, you can make one too because I will be posting the tutorial for it later on today for Made By Me Monday. *Update: The Mini Tote tutorial is here.

About the prize: (Just picture a lovely lady’s voice from the Shopping Channel…) This lovely mini tote is made using camel-toned fabric with a chocolate velour floral print. It has a stunning sequined stripe on the front and gold corded dupioni silk handles. The lining is made from Rashida Coleman-Hale’s Koi fabric line – Pennants Waving in the Ivory colour-way. It is 9″ wide, 10.5″ tall and 4″ deep. The handle drop (from top of handle to the bag) is 8″. This bag is perfect for that quick trip to the grocery store or fancy enough to dress up a visit to the mall with a friend. Holding all of your necessities and more, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it!

Okay, I am half kidding, but it got the information across and hopefully made you smile. (yes?!)

Here are the details: This giveaway is open internationally (hooray!), and will close at 5pm PST (8pm EST) on Friday, December 13th. The winner will be chosen randomly and I will be posting their name by Dec 15th and shipping the tote bag to the lucky recipient by December 20th.
