Giveaway time! From Mackerilla, The Cruzer and Little Cru Convertible bag PDF pattern! CLOSED

     SO... I spent two days absolutely agonizing over what to giveaway! I found inspiration kits, and fabrics, and fabric bundles, and patterns. I wanted to make sure I found something that I liked and could share. It needed to be worthwhile. I also wanted it to be something to push myself a little bit. I fell into a crafting rut so I needed to find something to kick start my crafty again! So after I put a list together of all of these amazing things I loved, I narrowed it down to about 10 and then Doodle Bug poked his head over my shoulder and said, "Are you going to make something yet, Mommy?" I took the cue and asked him what I should make. So he sat with me and automatically picked out this bag pattern. So here it is!

From Mackerilla, The Cruzer and Little Cru Convertible bag PDF pattern!

With this pattern you can make two different bags. The Lil Cru Dimensions: - 12"H x 11"W x 3.5"D which is your must-have convertible backpack-style purse. And the Cruzer Dimensions: - 14"H x 15"W x 4 1/2" is a full-size convertible backpack-style purse.
Bag features include adjustable straps, zippered top closure, two exterior side pockets for water bottles, front exterior zippered pocket, rear "split" open top pocket, large interior split pocket.
 (Also if you don't want to make it yourself she has one for sale in her shop! She also has some other super cute bag items you might want to go see!)

I'll go ahead and let you know the rules, 1 entry for a comment, plus 1 entry for each new follower you refer that follows on Google Friend. You can send as many as you want just make sure they tell me who sent them. So example... Jenny@herwebsite leaves a comment that says, "Hi! I'm a new follower! Sarah795 sent me!" A piece of paper with Jenny@herwebsite goes into the jar as well as another piece of paper with Sarah795. Entries will be accepted until February 2nd. It will close at 2PM Florida time. For every entry your name will go on a piece of paper in a jar and when the giveaway closes Doodle Bug will pick one from the jar and we will announce the winner on February 3rd. Got it? Easy right? So go ahead and leave some love and send some new friends!
