I am so excited to announce that the first Needle and Spatula sewing pattern is available for purchase! To celebrate I'm having a giveaway - more info at the end of this post.
The pattern is for a zippered yoga mat bag with a handy pocket where you can stash your keys, id, phone, etc.
The bag is designed to fit a standard sized yoga mat and the zipper makes it super easy to take the bag out and put it back in.
With a webbing strap, the bag is comfortable to carry over your shoulder or across your body.
The pattern is sold as a printable PDF file, and includes computer-drawn printable pattern pieces and detailed step-by-step instructions/photo tutorial. The pattern is available for purchase from my Etsy shop [update: and in my Meylah shop with automatic download]. I'm also selling finished bags in my shop if you want to buy one already made up!
I have been working on this for a while and am really so excited to have it up for sale so to celebrate I'm offering a GIVEAWAY!
I'm giving away a copy of the pattern and either:
- The materials required to make the bag - in any of the three main fabrics pictured above (pocket fabric may vary) - including the zippers, webbing, and all the fabrics needed; OR
- A $25 credit to my Etsy shop.
PLUS, to keep the odds good, for every 100 entries (if there are that many), I will give away another free PDF pattern.
Each person can have up to two entries:
- One for commenting on this post; and
- Another for tweeting about this giveaway: RT one of my tweets or write your own with a cc to @NeedleNSpatula and a link back to this post - Example - Check out this giveaway from @NeedleNSpatula for a sewing pattern and materials or shop credit! http://t.co/Qnzsw1Z
OR posting on facebook about this giveaway (with an @Needle and Spatula - you will have to like my page first - and a link back to this post) - come back and comment and tell me that you tweeted/posted. [Updated - I found out this is against FB policy but will honor entries that already did this - sorry!]
If you don't have an email listed on your blogger profile, please be sure to include one in your comment -- feel free to substitute (at) for @ symbol etc if you like.
Thanks and good luck!
