Little Bag Giveaway!

I am excited to be participating in my second Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I am offering a simple “Passport Bag” based on a design from “Simple Bags, Japanese Style” by Akiyo Kajiwara. I had a stash of Asian inspired fat quarters from Andover fabrics that I thought would pair perfectly with this pattern.

I always like to add some of my hand-dyed fabrics to my projects. The appliqué circle is made with some tie-dyed fabrics and the lining is an over-dyed fabric from the Andover collection.

The back is one piece of fabric.

The back is one piece of fabric.

The strap is 1 1/4" x 50".  The dimensions are 7 1/2" x 10".

The strap is 1 1/4″ x 50″. The dimensions are 7 1/2″ x 10″.

If you are unable to leave a comment, you can email me your answer at If you want to enter TWICE, “like” Modern Home Ec on Facebook (just let me know you have done so in your comment.)
