Days of Giving - 12 Days of Giveaways

Personally, I love to bring my machine outside and sew under the sun but during the winter that is just not possible. So instead, I like to sew things that I can use during the summer. Basically, I like to use it as a jump start on the season.  Alright, enough of the small talk, let’s get to the prize package!

'Tis the season and it is better to give than receive. Today's giveaway gift is packed with sewing inspiration. Be sure to see all of the prize packages being offered during The Sewing Loft's 12 Days of Giving. Over $1200 in prizes.


It all starts with the Sun & Surf Tote pattern by my friend Patty Young from ModKid. It is perfect for days at the beach, poolside and picnics in the park. My hope is that this prize package will help inspire you to add some bling to your projects and spring ahead right into the warm weather seasons.
