Sew Mama Sew Giveaway - Doris project bag

Hello all. It's that time of year again when blogland comes to life for the Winter edition of Sew Mama Sew giveaway day/week.

If you've visited us before, our giveaway offering won't be entirely new to you but hopefully you'll think it's worth having. If you've not visited before I'll fill you in briefly, I know there are lot of other places to visit!

A couple of weeks ago I made a project bag to house my yarn projects instead of the grotty plastic mailing bag that I had been using for almost a year (oh the shame!). Since then I have become somewhat obsessed (sorry, Instagram friends) with making them and have now made 5! I made a few adaptations to the original design as I wanted to add a carry strap and zipped pocket to make it a functional bag outside of the home. It's since been named the Doris project bag and I've written a pattern for it that will be released shortly in our Etsy store. Payhip store.
For the SMS giveaway version I've used Pam Kitty Picnic, Country Girls, Flower Sugar, April Showers and Vintage Happy which I hope you'll find appealing.
The Doris bag is approximately 18"(h) x 16" (w) x 6"(d). It's fully lined and has been entirely machine sewn for durability. It closes with a satin ribbon drawstring that is neatly enclosed inside the bag. There's an elasticated fabric loop inside the bag for attaching things to or to hold things upright.
The bottom section of the bag is lightly structured so that it can be free-standing. The top section of the bag is less structured so that it can fold back over itself (please see photos) to allow easy access to your yarn when in use. There are 2 exterior pockets: one 7.5” x 11.5” open pocket for storing your pattern and one 7.5” x 11” zipped pocket for storing items that need to be kept safe in transit (e.g. crochet hooks, stitch counters or maybe your mobile phone). There is a 52” fabric carry strap that has a metal snap hook at each end to allow for easy removal of strap.
So, if the Doris bag is something you think you'd like a chance to win, please leave a comment telling us your current work in progress. We're buried under half finished projects at the moment so it will be nice to find out what everyone else is up to.
If you fancy a second chance at winning you can click the follow button  and leave another comment telling us that you did or that you already follow us.
The giveaway will close on December 12th at 5.00pm PST. In the UK that's around 1.00am so you can rest assured I'll be tucked up in bed asleep then so I'll draw the winner using Random Number Generator when I wake up.
We're happy to ship Internationally but we obviously can't guarantee that the bag will be with you before the New Year as the last posting date for guaranteed delivery by Christmas has now passed.
Again to remind you: 1st chance to win - leave a comment telling us your current work in progress.
                                   2nd chance to win - leave a comment telling us you are a new or existing follower   
I will try to answer as many comments as possible but please don't think I'm rude if I don't manage to reply to everyone as these giveaways can be so popular and I have a lot of sewing to be doing :) I almost forgot, please make sure I can contact you if you win by leaving an email address with your comment if you are a no-reply blogger. If I can't get hold of you and don't hear from you the day after the draw I will draw another winner.
In the meantime I hope you all enjoy visiting the other blogs taking part in the SMS giveaway. Good luck to all who enter. Catch you soon x

Edited to add the winner of the giveaway is Martina. Thanks for entering everyone.
Edited to add the Doris project bag pattern is now available in our Payhip store.

  155. Hi there gals,
    I am currently working on my second all-scrappy KING-sized EPP hexagon quilt. My hexies measure 1" on the sides. I finished the first one in the spring(over 4,00 pieces) and my teenaged son loved it so much he asked me to make a similar one for him. About 75% of the scraps used in both quilts are from pen pals and swaps from all over the world!
    That bag of yours is so awesome! I have always wanted some Pam Kitty, Sugar and Happy fabrics, but they are way out of my price range(I am on a disability pension).
    Thanks so much for the giveaway,

  169. I am currently working on a birdie themed quilt for Chief. I'm at the quilting stage. Have to keep stopping because it's exhausting wrestling the quilt through the machine!

  171. I love this bag!! I have never made any bags like this, but I love this style so much, I may need to try it. Right now I'm working on some small zipper pouches for friends (the only "bags" I have ever made).

  172. I'm just finishing quilted coasters for gifts and as a fund raiser for the local pet rescue. That bag is beautiful and such a good idea.

  173. Working on Christmas stockings. I just showed my sister how to crochet, and she was talking about needing a bag that would stand up. This is perfect. I actually have been looking online and haven't found anything half as nice,

    Love the Doris bag, what a great idea!
