makeup bag giveaway August 14, 2011 – Posted in: Giveaways, Sewing


If you’re anything like me, you read craft blogs and imagine the authors to have really amazing handmade things filling their homes, right? That’s so not the case for me! 95% of what I make leaves my house and I just don’t have much time left over to sew for my girls, let alone myself. I realized I needed to remedy that this last week when my makeup bag started falling apart.

It’s pretty shameful to share that this is what has been storing my makeup for the past year:

It’s got several holes in it, but nothing was falling out. Until last week when it busted down the side and I started losing pieces in my diaper bag. I’m not an everyday makeup kind of girl, so it didn’t seem like a big deal. But really? Carrying my makeup around in a ziploc bag? I had to do something about it.

So I made this baby!

And I LOVE it!! It’s the perfect size for my few pieces of makeup, and it’s easy to toss in my diaper bag and go.

Since I was making one, I thought, “Why not make 2?”

This sweet little bag is going to find a new home with one of YOU!

Lined with coordinating pink and white polka dot fabric, for that perfect girly accent.

I love the triangular shape of these bags,

and that they lay flat to store when not in use.

So now that I’ve teased you, wanna know how to win it?

Here’s the details:

-You get 1 entry for being a follower.

-I started a Facebook page for my blog. I get lots of good comments and emails from you guys, and all too frequently I read them on the go, then forget to go back and reply. I hate forgetting! I’m on FB a good deal throughout the day, so it’s an easy way for me to stay in touch with all of you! You get 1 entry for becoming a FB fan.

-I also started a Flickr group. I LOVE to see the things you all sew, especially the things you create using my tutorials! I’ve had a few emails with pictures, but I’d love it if more of you would share. So, you’ll get 1 entry for EACH picture you add to the group!

Got all that?
1 entry for being a follower
1 entry for becoming a FB fan
1 entry PER PICTURE you add to the Flickr group

You’ll find the links to the Flickr group and the Sew Like My Mom FB page on my right sidebar. The giveaway will close at 12 am EDT on Friday, August 19th, and I’ll announce the winner on Saturday the 20th.

Good luck!
