**** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. BECOME A FOLLOWER AND YOU'LL SURELY BE NOTIFIED OF THE NEXT BACKPACK GIVEAWAY!!****
This week's giveaway is a backpack!! I originally found this pattern back in May 2009. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. Rae at made-by-rae.com is super talented at making patterns. I have all of her patterns and have used all of them. She also gives permission for you to sell items that you make from her patterns. In June 2009, I invited my sewing buddy (we currently live in completely different parts of the country now...so sad) over and we made cute backpacks for our little girls who are 3 weeks apart in age.
Then in August, an Etsy customer contacted me to see if I could make her girls some backpacks. Thus, started my journey to now having nearly made 300 of these puppies.
So here's the backpack I'm giving away. It's made with Holly 2D Zoo by Alexander Henry. I love this fabric. Love it!!
I do sell kits if anyone would like to buy one. Just email me: etsyteachermom at gmail dot com
That way you can try one out without spending the time and money to chase down all the materials. I use real strap adjusters (not d rings) and I even cut out all the fabric, interfacing, and twill for you as well. You will have to purchase the pattern separately from Rae.
To enter the giveaway just become a follower and leave me a comment letting me know that you are now a follower or already are one :) I will be choosing a winner on Friday, February 12th.
I will also have "a boy option" if you are the winner, but prefer a backpack for a boy.
Tell all your friends!!
