Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway! The winner have been chosen!
It’s Giveaway Day (Week)!
Welcome to Sewing by Moonlight. If you’d like to know more about the woman behind the blog, feel free to click over to my About section.
I wrote two tutorials for quilt blocks in the past month, which might interest you.
Multiples of 3 is a block inspired by the 3-parted equilateral triangles often seen in English paper piecing, but this one is machine pieced. The spider web block is an update on the great tutorial by Heather at House of a la Mode. This one finishes at 12.5 inches, and I show you how to make a template for the center so you will have less fabric waste.
I have two prizes to giveaway today.
I opened my Sewing by Moonlight Etsy shop 6 weeks ago. It’s going poorly thus far, to be honest, but this is the bag that was my inspiration to begin selling handmade items. The first one I made was a library bag for my 3-year-old daughter, so she could carry her books without the bag dragging on the ground. Then I realized it was also the perfect size to tuck under my arm and use as a project bag, or everyday bag.
It’s a great bag because it’s lined with heavyweight fabric so it can hold books and things without falling apart and it has a cute little zippered pocket to hold your phone, keys, and small items (or a library card!).
If handmade bags aren’t your thing, and you’d rather have some fabric to do your own thing, how about this great little fat quarter bundle? You get some of this totally cute Posie print from Flea Market Fancy and 3 co-ordinating Kona solids. Gotta have some solids.
How to Enter
Leave a comment: I clearly need some help with selling my handmade items. Tell me: what handmade items do you purchase OR what sort of handmade bag would you buy (clutch, purse, diaper bag, tote, snack bag, messenger bag, etc.). OR if you have experience selling handmade, give me your best tip.
Let me know if you prefer the bag or the fabric or either.
I’m attempting to be more interactive in Social Media, so for a second entry, Like Sewing by Moonlight on Facebook.
Now, go forth and enter giveaways! Good luck!
