Surprise Consolation Prize: $6.95 Roundabout Bag Pattern FREE Today Only


I had meant to write this post a week or so ago but with all the issues with the virus and the lockdown in our neighborhood, I've gotten a bit behind. 

Our most popular giveaway ever, the Juki Industrial Sewing Machine Giveaway, ended recently.  Nearly 13,000 readers participated which was a tremendous success.  

Vivian O. from Bever, PA was the lucky winner.  I think she has now received the entire machine.  As an industrial machine, it was really large and came in three big boxes.  Two boxes arrived at her house first with the table and the parts and I hope the final box with the machine and motor just arrived today.  I'm sure Vivian will tell us how she's gone with this in the comments below.

I really, really wish everyone could have won but we only had one machine to give away. (Please keep an eye out for future giveaways and join our mailing list if you'd like us to keep you updated.)

Like we have done with nearly all our prior giveaways, to say thank you to everyone for participating and as a bit of a surprise consolation prize, we have decided to give away one of our very popular bag patterns for the Roundabout Bag which is sold normally for $6.95, absolutely FREE.

But please act today, this gift is only available for the next 24 hours!

This pattern has been widely reviewed and is accompanied by a 38-minute full video tutorial to help walk you through the entire process of sewing this versatile and stylish bag for summer.  

Features of the Roundabout Bag:

  • Unusual circular design with top zipper
  • Uses ready made leather handles for a store-bought look (or you can make your own )
  • Roomy inside with space for several internal pocket options
  • Front single pocket with twist lock (optional)
  • Back divided pocket
  • Optional piping
  • Full video tutorial (with pattern purchase only)
  • Finished size – approx. 9 inches across by 3 inches deep

The pattern has a heap of pattern tester reviews so you can get real feedback on the project before you start. You can check this all out in the linked post.
