Thanks for entering! This giveaway is now closed!! Come back tomorrow for another pattern giveaway!

Happy New Year! You thought I’d slept in after a late night of carousing and forgot to post today’s giveaway? No way dudes, we have kids. We do NOTHING for New Year’s these days. I just accidentally auto-posted it for 16:00 instead of 6:00, heh, so it’s up a little late today; so I’ll just leave it open a little later tonight than usual. Anyway…Happy New Year and I hope you had a chance to have a wonderful celebration!!

On the eighth day of of Christmas, my true love gave to me…eight maids a-milking, seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five golden rings, four colly birds, three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree!

….and Rae gave to me a Lickety Split Bag sewing pattern!


I find I use this bag more than any of my other bags; it works as a shopping bag, for weekend overnight trips or trips to the beach, as a carry-on, and when I had babies it was always the diaper bag. It’s so satisfying to get so much use out of something that was so easy to make! This is also one of my favorite bags to make as a gift; it’s so quick and easy to sew! The Lickety Split is also a great quick beginner sewing project for those who want to get into sewing bags without having to suffer through a long fussy project.

Here’s just a few lovely Lickety Split Bags made by others:

The winner will be randomly selected, contacted via email, and will receive a PDF copy of the pattern via email. All winners will be posted at the end of this series as well so we don’t miss anyone!

    Okay, I probably should just buy this pattern since I’ve been drooling over it for a while…it’s just that I often forget to buy the things I want and buy what I don’t (I blame the kids).
