A “Bloomin’” Giveaway

Hello there bloggy friends! I am so very happy to share with you what I have been working on for the past few – more like six or more – months. You know how you get an idea imbedded into your noggin’ and it just kind of keeps reminding you that “hey – get off of yer bum and do something about it!” So, here it is….my first bag pattern! When I was a young chickadee – 19 or so – I had a darling ruffled shirt made out of t-shirt fabric. Cute thing, that little shirt. It was my favorite. I wanted to create a bag that would look similar to my vintage ruffled and flouncy top.

Someday I will have to dig out the “vintage” photo of me wearing it. But you must promise NOT to snicker. Well, ok…one or two snickers is ok. Remember Farrah hair? Yea, I had that, too.P1010016

The tote bag is simply called SOPHIE’S BLOOMERS. The Bloomer bag is flirty and ruffly and very girly-girlish. When I was testing the pattern out, I made up quite a few to get it “just right”. The line up above is a sampling of those test bags.

I would also like to extend a big thank you and shout out for my TEST SEWER friends! A round of applause goes to SINTA, SHARON and JEAN! These women were very patient with me and offered me tremendous feedback for the pattern. Thank you so much!!

Being as I am NEW to this pattern business, I had many questions along the way. A big thank you goes to Ann, Pam, Elizabeth and Amy for sharing their professional pointers with me.

I am grateful for each and every person who has encouraged me to take this step. The process has been a lot of work, but enjoyable as well.

P1010018i

Remember my post about Elizabeth’s RED ROSE FARM fabric? It was secret squirrel stuff then – HOWEVER I can tell you all about it now. Elizabeth asked if I would like to make up two Bloomer bags in her new line of fabric. *insert a GASP here and please call someone who can perform CPR!!!* But wait, it gets even better…..AND she would take my bags with her to display in the PB Textile booth (the wonderful fabric company who has manufactured Red Rose Farm) at the HOUSTON QUILT MARKET!!!!

BE STILL MY HEART!!!

Below are the two bags that I made up using just a few of the delightful and GORGEOUS (say it again now…GGGGGORGEOUS) fabrics from the Red Rose Farm line. Elizabeth’s fabric is not only sweet-as-can-be but it is soft and just dreamy to sew on, too.

P1010017

Just look at the pretty pink roses with pink polka dots in the background!

P1010061d

Below is the Bloomer bag made up of several coordinating fabrics. The bag can be made with two coordinating fabrics OR three OR four. Add a chunky ric rac along the top and a pretty rhinestone button for some girly bling.

P1010130cP1010136c

I made the bag below in a sweet Lucien fabric with soft pink roses on a blue background. This one is for me…a girl has to have a few extra purses hanging around, dontchaknow! Right?

P1010133a

There are several reasons why I decided to share some goodies with y’all…..

1. The Giants WON THE WORLD SERIES!! - SO PROUD OF THEM! You guys totally rock! Seriously!

2. This month I turn 50. Yep, the BIG 5-0. This is my birthday gift to you.

3. And in memory of our Jordy boy’s 27th birthday. I know he is cheering me on in this endeavor. I can just feel his chin on my shoulder as he would so often do when he was watching me do something.

AND because I have three reasons to have a giveaway, there are three prizes.

Here is how this works…

P1010065c

1. The first winner will have the choice of either the teal or pink Sophie’s Bloomers bag (above and below). When you leave a comment, please indicate which one you would like to win.

2. The second winner will win the single ruffle burlap runner as shown below.

3. The third winner will win one of my Sophie's Bloomers Bag patterns.

P1010091

If you would like to have several chances to win, please closely follow the directions below:

1. Leave a comment on this post if you would like to enter the giveaway.

2. For a second entry, leave another comment and let me know if you follow my blog.

3. If you are not a follower and would like to be, enter a separate comment to let me know if you are now a follower.

4. If you would like to share about the giveaway on your blog – via a post or a sidebar note – enter a separate comment that you have done so.

Hey, I am a follower too, for quite a while now. I look forward to every post. Actually, I think that yours was one of the very first few blogs that I kept up with in the early days. Now, tomorrow, as soon as I can figure out how, I will also post on my blog too. I don't really have any content there yet because of taking care of my mother (24/7) who is a hospice patient, but I truly do intend to get it going very soon. Holiday decorating should be something fairly easy to begin with, lol. Thank you for sharing with all of us. --Leslie

The pink would be my first choice, altho the aqua is just as wonderful, reminds me of spring ... endless possiblities with the layers for using multiple fabrics ... great first pattern!

Love, love, love the bags. Anything with ruffles gets my attention. I like both bags and would be so lucky to win one. My birthday is Nov. 16 and this would be a wonderful gift.

The bag pattern is lovely - and I remember those early Rose bags you posted yet didn't put 2 and 2 together. My choice would be teal.
I just had a much higher b'day number than you - you are younger than my youngest baby sister! Have a happy 50th and congratulations on your pattern release.

Becky: Words cannot express how proud and excited I am for you. You deserve all the accolades and pats on the back. I predict great things for you!!! I'm honored to have been a teensy little part of your designing journey.

Don't enter me in the drawing. I still have to finish my bag, although I wouldn't mind an autographed pattern! I just don't know what I do with all my spare time! Yuck Yuck!!

(((Hugs)))

Your bags are just too cute--and perfect for using up some narrow scraps for the ruffles. My brain is buzzing with possibilities. Of course, I could win the teal bag and save my fabric instead!
