Mirabelle Messenger Bag Pattern Giveaway!



I'm so excited to be hosting this very special giveaway.  It's my friend Ruby's first sewing pattern, and it's fantastic!  The Mirabelle Messenger Bag has everything in one bag - and the directions are easy-to-follow with lots of photos.  Great for an advanced beginner on up!


It is a great opportunity to practice your bias tape and piping- making talents, too. 




Ruby walks you clearly through how to insert a strap adjuster...




... magnetic snap...




...and interior zipper pocket.



It's the perfect place to hide a surprise for a little friend...



...and the perfect bag for a girl with places to go!
 


The best part about this bag is that it fits kids and adults, and you can use a variety of fabrics, from cute corduroy prints to more refined cotton prints.  Make your own bias tape and piping to coordinate with your fabric, and you'll have the cutest, most-versatile bag in town!

So...would you like to make one?  Even better, would you like to win the pattern for free?

Leave a comment telling who you think you'll make this for and what fabric you envision using.

Giveaway will be open until Friday, November 16th at 12 p.m. EST.

Good luck!

I would love to win this pattern! I am always looking for new bags to make. I make all everyone in my family bags and purses every year. This year would be damask upholstery fabrics for the gals and dark solid colors for the guys.

My 11yr old daughter would love this bag! She would probably like something neon, so I would most likely do a grey or denim with neon trims.

My oldest daughter (a first grade teacher) she loves pink and Fancy Nancy!! I'm thinking fushia or black pinwale corduroy with Fancy Nancy Trim and a matching applique I have saved for a special gift to her. I would love to give this to her!

This would be so perfect because I have been feeling pretty down about not being able to get anything nice for 5 grown daughters! I have lots of beautiful fabric stashed away but nothing special I could make them. This would be perfect and could be made special for each girl!

It's so gorgeous, I'd like to make hundreds as Christmas gifts, BUT the first one I make will be for my 4 year old daughter to carry her epipen, medicines, etc. She's such a funky little thing that I'm going to go for bright red polka dot laminate cotton & denim! :)
