Pattern Review and a Giveaway!!

Guess what?  I got to test another great bag pattern, two actually!!  This time from Get Your Crap Together. (

Congrats to PJ BAKER, winner of the mini crossover bag! :)

The Lazy Day Crossover Bag comes in two sizes with three different strap lengths for each one. A small pleat on the front helps give shape and room to the bag.  There is an optional pocket on the inside.  If you are new to zippers, don't worry--Chelsea makes it easy!  Did I mention that these bags are completely reversible?  I chose not to sew in Velcro so that I can turn my bag inside out if I'm not in the mood for so many elephants!  ;)
The perfect companion to the Lazy Day Bag is the Purse Organizer. Simple squares and rectangles and 2 pieces of ribbon make this an easy project.  Tons of pockets or just a few, you decide how
many you want. This organizer is also completely reversible, so you can customize your fabric choices to match more than one bag.  This organizer would be great to move from bag to bag, I think it would be perfect to go in a diaper bag!
In the course of testing the patterns, I made the full-size Lazy Day and also the Mini.  I love the larger bag and have been carrying it exclusively since I made it.  I have gotten so many compliments and also requests to make more of these for my friends, I can't wait to find new fabrics!
I decided that since I like my bag so much, I want to share with you.  One lucky reader will win the Mini Lazy Day bag that I made.  This cute little bag measures approximately 9 1/2" across the top, about 10" tall, with a 27" strap (13" drop). To enter, scroll down to the Rafflecopter box and complete your entries.  Good luck!!
