The contest is closed. Wow, I had 60 entries! That's awesome, I'll definitely make more green bags and have another contest soon. I'm making some for family and friends right now. I just bought another 4 yards of fabric ($1 at the thrift shop) to make more, as if I didn't have enough fabric! So watch the blog for the next contest!
The Winners are:
Please leave a comment with your email addy and address (It will not be made public, don't worry, I'll be the only one seeing it) and I will email you when I mail your bag. If you came here through YahooGroups or Ravelry you can contact me there.
First off, you have to visit the Green Bag Lady, she's been giving away green bags for grocery shopping but is getting overwhelmed and needs help! She has posted a link to her pattern on the sidebar of her blog. If you can sew, they take hardly anytime at all, I've made two already in less than an hour. I gave the first one to my daughter and this one is for me. I already have a bag I bought but I can always use another one. So this will be an effort to save the earth or at least keep a few animals from choking on plastic bags.
I have three more of these bags cut out from this (recycled, not sure what it was but I bought the pieces at a thrift shop) fabric that I want to give away. So who should I give them to? I don't have the money or the time to do what the Green Bag Lady does but I can help. I will give away three grocery bags to three of my readers. I guess we're going to call this a contest. Just leave a comment and I will chose three to win the bags. If this goes well I may do it more often depending on when I have time to make more bags. This contest will close on my next day off which should be next Tuesday, June 17. Please check back to see if you won.
