Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

Spring fever has got into me and I'm doing my first ever giveaway. This is part of the Sew Mama Sew May giveaway day - check out their blog for a full list of participating blogs:

I've decided to give away this Aztec Hobo bag:

Aztec has a relaxed and slightly slouchy air, perfect for day wear. Fastened with a strong magnetic snap, she has a large internal zip pocket and a partioned patch pocket designed to hold pens and a mobile phone. She has a 23" (59cm) shoulder strap which ties in a cute bow and can be easily adjusted. Dimensions: 12" (30.5cm) wide, 10" (25.5cm tall) excluding handle strap and 1 1/2" (4cm) deep.

(In case you were wondering, this style of purse is called a hobo bag because "it resembles the shape of the bundle on a stick that hobos are portrayed as carrying over their shoulder in drawings and cartoons" - amazing what you can find out on wikipedia!)

To enter my giveaway, please leave a comment at the end of this post recommending a new blog for me to read. I'll choose the winner randomly. I'm really sorry, but I will only be able to ship to the UK on this occasion.

Good Luck!


  1. Hey.

    Gorgeous bag :o) I've not found your blog before but it looks good. I'll have to come back and read some old posts later (when I'm not meant to be working!)

    I was going to recommend OolaMoola for you to read but it looks like they've stopped blogging :o( (


    I'm going to recommend instead. She writes regularly and consistently makes me laugh. I love her perspective on life and the way she presents things on her blog. She's also taking part in the giveaway which is where I first heard about it.

    Happy reading!
