Social Tote Pattern Giveaway!

[Thank you to all who entered!  This giveaway is now closed.]

I figured we might as well start off the work week with a pattern giveaway!  I know some people have struggled to locate the pattern for the Social Tote Pattern that I collaborated on with Carolyn Friedlander.  Sometimes with distributors it takes a bit longer for the pattern to find it’s way to shops and listings.  I do hope you’ll try and track it down though, the pattern is just so beautifully put together and packaged.

Today I’m giving away 2 copies of the Social Tote Pattern and one set of Carolyn’s fabulous creative stamps!

To enter:

  • two winners will be chosen
  • Just leave a comment! Maybe tell me what new fabrics you’re most excited about ordering or using. One entry per person.  Please leave your email address in your comment. You can leave it in a format like this if you wish: anna [at] gmail [dot] com, it’s up to you though, if you have your email listed in your blogger profile, that works too!.
  • Open to anyone!
  • Giveaway ends Friday, August 9th

And if you don’t win a copy, check these shops:
Pink Chalk Fabrics
Jem Jam
[If you’re a shop carrying this pattern please leave a comment below!]

And page through Carolyn’s other lovely designs in her Slow Sewing Studio.

Like that beautiful background fabric?  Me too.  It’s from Ellen Luckett Baker‘s newly released line for Kokka called Folk Modern.  You can grab yourself some:

JAQS Fabrics
Pink Castle Fabrics
Pink Chalk Fabrics
And coming to Miss Matatabi and others soon!

  30. Kaylee says:

    This is a super cute pattern! I recently went to the fabric store and purposefully looked for solid colors to go with my myriads of prints. They aren’t true solid colors though, I got a lavender with the texture of an egg shell, and some blue with little white circles all over, and some tree bark looking cream. I thought this would help me use up some of my stash, if it was easier to coordinate stuff.

    I have been in love with Cloud 9 Mixteca print Toucana! I just made a lovely pencil skirt out of it, even though it really is a quilting cotton. Living so close to the Mexican border (10 mins.max!), we are surrounded by the bright colors and vibrancy that is Mexico.

    Looks like a very cool tote! Thanks for the givaway. I’m not getting any new fabric…I think it’s high time I use what I have in my stash. It’s growing leaps and bounds!

    Nice giveaway. Looks like a keen pattern,

  346. Gwendellyn says:

    This pattern just seems so useful for so many things! Every room in the house could sort of use one 🙂 I’m so excited right now for Waterfront Park, I think that might be my first fat quarter bundle purchase. All the prints are wonderful!

    This would be perfect for my mornings in the garden. I often want to separate two items, such as the teeny tiny Texas Wild Tomatoes from a Big Bertha that would crush them. Looks great.

    I love this tote. I would have to make it out of Kona Bay Asian fabric. The brighter the better.

  349. Great pattern! Such a useful piece!

  361. Even thought I was at Quilt Market … I felt like my head was swimming with so many wonderful patterns/lines I might have drowned a bit and just come home to the safety of my sewing stash ;). I will say I am super excited about Potluck by American Jane and the ‘ruler’ fabric coming back :).

    Thanks for your sweet giveaway and for sharing your talent with us!!

  367. Ether Bourn says:

    I’m working with Comma now but am looking forward to pulling from my tiny stash to make a baby quilt. It will be my first quilt that I will not have to buy 100% of the fabric to start. It has taken 8 months of buying fabric to build a stash that I can pull from. Gfahrion at comcast dot net

    Love this practical tote pattern and the stamps are perfect

    ooo! Love this pattern! Itching to make a social tote!

    I’m on a fabric fast for a while. After cleaning up my sewing room I’ve realized I have way too much fabric and need to get rid of some before buying anymore.

    I love the tote and have been looking around for a pattern, but no luck so far. I’ll definitely check your suggestions. There are so many lovely fabric lines out there that I have to sit on my hands to avoid ordering them all LOL! Right now I’m rather excited about Tim Holtz’ first fabric line which apparently is due in shops in September – lots of text and interesting patterns I think.

  379. Joanna says:

    I can totally see myself using the bit of fabric I have with a girl’s vintage fashion pattern for the exterior! Such a great idea for gifts, and I would keep the stamps for myself : )

  380. I would love to win this pattern. I have some liberty fabric, a tiny bit that I am thinking of making hankies from. We all use hankies around here:-)


  381. Nikki M. says:

    Now that’s a tote I could make and use ALOT! I hope i win! I’ve been collecting some low volume FQ’s and I’m looking for the right project to use them. There are lots of ideas out there, but none have spoken to me yet.

  382. Dulcimer says:

    I’m excited about Rae Hoekstra’s new line of soft flannels!

    What a nice giveaway! I love your website!

  386. What a great pattern! I am slowly hoarding away fabric bits for a charm quilt. Just a snippet here, a fat quarter there. The anticipation of building up stock is so immense. It’s truly exhilarating to pull out this pile from time to time and see how my choices fit together. Thanks for the chance to win! Nicolesheree[at]gmail[dot]com.

  387. Allison says:

  396. wipgirl says:

    I’m most excited about a couple of the prints from Cori Dantini’s new line, though my favourite place to buy them has run out/is on backorder. Sigh – I should be on a fabric fast anyway…

    ps the stamps are so cute, it’s hard to find tackyness-free stamps like this to indicate the handmade nature of gifts!
