Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Alicia of Swoon Patterns. Alicia a graphic designer by trade and fell in love with sewing many years ago. She says: “I think it was a natural path for me to mesh the two and start drafting my own sewing patterns. There’s nothing I like sewing together more than bags, so that’s mostly what I do! I am not much for frills, ruffles, or an obvious “homemade” look (much to the dismay of my 6 year old), so my patterns create bags that are simple, clean and easily modified by the advanced sewist.”

Swoon Patterns has a host of different bag patterns from clutches to weekenders and there is something for everyone. Her bags have a clean, crisp look to them and are just wonderful for showcasing some of your favorite fabrics.
One lucky winner will receive a subscription to all of the patterns in the Swoon Library, as well as all future patterns that are released through April of 2015
Some of Alicia’s awesome patterns include:
A stunning, rockabilly-inspired bag in three different sizes, 10.5”, 12” and 14” wide. Large side slip pockets, a zippered lining compartment, and a removeable crossbody strap make it as functional as it is stylish. You’ll want to make a Blanche for everybody you know.
Slide a rolled up towel or two behind the adjustable long handles and head to the beach, but don’t limit this bag to summer! She’d also be a great grocery tote, yoga bag or weekender. There are pockets both outside and inside to keep your valuables in easy reach.
The Betty Bowler is a vintage-inspired bowling-bag-style carry-all roomy enough to fit anything you might need for a day trip. She is 16” wide and features an exterior zippered pocket, interior open pockets, and piping for a professionally-made look.
A bag to hold the bare essentials for a night out on the town! This pattern includes two clutch sizes; small (11” wide) and large (14” wide) as well as an option to make the small one into a wristlet skipping the handles. All three options include a recessed zipper and can be casual and cute or formal and chic.
