velmaI just had to look up the word giveaway, I was thinking it was not a word but some weird new internet word but it seems to be in the Merrium-Webster Dictionary. So, okay!

I have this lovely Amy Butler Velma Bags Pattern to give away! Who’s excited? Amy Butler has some great patterns and this bag is very cute and comes with shoulder and handbag patterns.

To enter this contest leave a comment on this post. If you have sewn something from an Amy Butler pattern before you could leave a comment about that. The contest ends Friday the 22nd of January 2010. I will pick a winner with a random number generator! Good luck!

    I have seen loads of projects using A B fabric and I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to make anything yucky from here fabric.

    And see, here is another example: a pretty bag!
    Well done.

  4. Lisa on January 15, 2010 12:34 pm

    I have used Amy’s stash and dash bag pattern and loved it – the bags came out really cute and I thought the pattern was detailed and easy to follow, even with the zipper!

  5. Whitney on January 15, 2010 12:45 pm

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win!

  6. Shelly on January 15, 2010 12:48 pm

    I’d love to sew an Amy Butler pattern! I haven’t yet had the pleasure, but I did receive the Little Stitches book for Christmas, and have all sorts of sewing plans (once I get my mojo back after all my crazy Christmas sewing).

  24. Angela Scrofano on January 15, 2010 8:46 pm

    Love love love Amy Bulter’s stuff. I have a few things in the works, yoga bag but turning it into a aquadoodle tote for my 2 1/2 yr old so she can take it with her when we visit my sister and brother-in-law….gotta love the aquadoodle, a good quiet toy for her active imagination.

  25. jessica on January 15, 2010 9:02 pm

    I love all her purses, they are all so lovely!

  26. edina on January 15, 2010 10:36 pm

    I made Amy Butler’s large Betty Shopper a few years ago: link text It’s a great pattern but I think next time I’ll make the smaller one as the large one is very unwieldy and can’t be used in a crowded place without bumping into other people!

  27. Renee Wilkey on January 15, 2010 11:39 pm

    Love Amy Butler! Thank you for sponsoring this wonderful giveaway

  28. Hannah on January 16, 2010 6:48 am

  29. Melinda on January 16, 2010 7:09 am

  30. Ali McCollum on January 16, 2010 8:38 am

    I adore Amy Butler! Her patterns are easy to follow & extremely functional. Helped me learn to sew with several of her bag patterns.

    Also her fabric is amazing! Beautiful.

  31. sandy on January 16, 2010 8:56 am

  36. Margaret on January 16, 2010 10:55 am

    I have the overnight pattern here at home but I’ve heard it’s really difficult and have started it yet. Maybe if I had an easier one it would inspire me!

  70. Ellen on January 17, 2010 12:59 pm

    Not even 2 hours ago I ordered 3 yds. of 3 different Amy Butler fabrics and it was such a hard decision! I’m making a diaper bag for my daughter who is a big Amy Butler fan!
