31 : : Boxy Tote Pattern & a Giveaway!

I can’t believe I’ve finally pulled this pattern together! I am so excited to tell you that it is in my shop right now for sale! And, I went to get interfacing at my LQS earlier – they want to sell it too! And maybe make a class out of it! I wasn’t even trying to market it there yet, I had the kids with me, and thought I would come back when I had my act together :)

The giveaway – I will giveaway two copies on Monday, August 3rd. Leave a comment, and let me know what fabrics you would like to make it up with. Also, I would love to have your help spreading the word, so grab my picture and post on your blog. Let me know you posted in another comment for an extra chance.

Thanks for your help and have a great weekend!

    I have some great prints from Patty young just waiting for me to make them into something. This would be perfect. How exciting that your Quilt shop wants to carry it!

    What a beautiful bag! I think it would look gorgeous in some Heather Baily Pop Garden or MoMo's Wonderland. I would love a chance to win the pattern. You are so creative. Thanks.

    I can't seem to stop using wonderland for EVERYTHING! But Lantern Bloom is tempting me lately as well…

    What a lovely bag – it obviously has great structure, which is what I LOVE! I would use my hand dyed fabrics – cause I use them in everything!

    I think it would be cute in a medley of holiday prints, say, Halloween or Christmas. But those modern graphic prints you chose look fabulous!

    So great that your LQS wants to retail the pattern. It could be the start of a new career.

    Adorable bag! Congrats on getting it out there. I would love to make this in either Good Folks or Flower Power fabrics.

    I'd love to win a copy of the pattern. I would make your bag out of gold/blue/brown scraps that I bought recently (I wish I knew the name of the line!) They look vaguely oriental. Sadly, although I claim to have a blog I haven't actually done anyhting with it yet, so I can't enter that way.,
    Good luck! (and I'd love to see your pattern in my local quilt shop http://www.quiltersdream.ca but I have no idea how you'd go about doing that.

    Congrats! Nice to be able to make money doing something you love. I"m not quite up on fabric lines but I do like the small prints of Japenese fabrics I see online. There was another fab I saw with the cutest owls on it…course I can't remember where I saw it or the name of the line :(

    I am still planning on making the quiltalong with you…just haven't had a chance to get upstairs…now that the garden and bushes are starting to produce, I may not be able to for a while or only get bits and snatches of time here and there.

    This is a great pattern and it looks like there is enough stabilizer to make it stand alone :) Very substantial. I would make this with either batiks or a combination of black and white prints (with maybe a shock of yellow).

    Hi Amy,
    congrats to the new design! The bag is gorgeous!
    I just recently discovered the joy of bagmaking ~ I always thought I couldn't master it…but now I'm addicted…
    Although I would love to see it in some 'Deer Valley', 'Hopscotch', 'Mezzazine', or any Amy Butler fabric, I think I'd choose a variety of Fig Tree fabrics ~ not only because I love them, but because I already have it at home ;o).
    Good luck with your Etsy sales & of course thanks for this awesome giveaway!

    NICE bag! It looks like a very useful size!

    This would be great in all kinds of fabric. I have a bunch, mostly orange & teal prints that I got from fabric.com earlier this year & would probably use some of those.

    Very, very cute Amy! I love the fabrics you've chosen – I'd probably copy you! ;-)

    Oh, to choose a fabric. :) Maybe Moda's Fall Back in Time for a GREAT fall bag or Moda Sultry! Love the bag!

    I just returned from our family holiday in Transylvania, Romania after a 11 hour car trip to this great give away – I knew I had to turn on my laptop, which I didnot have with me on the holiday! :-)
    I would make the bag from something aqua/blue, maybe with a bit of brown.

    Great looking purse/tote! You know, I think I'd use some of my black and white fabrics–I just love the graphic look of blacks and whites! I'd perhaps throw in a strip or two of the turquoise/teal fabrics similar to what you used for a little punch. And you know what else I think I might try? I think I'd try to use some of that new Texture Magic on a couple strips–the stuff that Kim at Bitty Bits and Pieces has mentioned on her blog.

    The bag looks great. Black and white would be classy, but I'd also love to see a warm reds/oranges version.

    I'd love to make this up with some Wonderland by Momo prints – thanks for the chance!

    Love your pattern & love to make bags. I would start with Black & White geometric prints with a red thrown in for good measure. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your pattern.

    That pattern is so cute. I would make it in some of the yellow/green fabrics from the Wildwood line, mixed with some linen.

    Great bag! I'd use Swanky for a summer bag, and then make a fall version with shades of orange. Thanks for the give-away.

    WOW…AWESOME!!! I would make mine out of Candy Kisses…left over from my QAL with Dana;)

    Yeah! I absolutely love this purse! Oh my. What fabrics to choose??? Right now I would have to choose Lantern Bloom by Laura Gunn. I am using it for the zig zag quilt along and the quilt will go to my sister. The colors are amazingly interesting and perfect for fall.

    Thanks Amy!

    Oh, what a great bag, I also love the shape and structure of it, it's sweet! Nice job, Amy. I don't know how you do so much in a day.

    I just ordered a bunch of Mendocino fabrics so I would probably, maybe, cut into that. Or maybe Neptune using scrappy strips. Or maybe just a mix of brights from the stash. Who knows? lol

    Nice bag, I have never tried anything but quilting, this might be the opportunity for me as I would not know where to look and how to start. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Darling!! I'd like to make that bag w/the new Summer Soiree I just received. Really enjoy your blog!

  155. quilt530 August 3, 2009 at 7:56 am - Reply

    Beautiful bag!! Since my favorite fabric generally has stars in it, I think I would try something with stars and snowman for a nice winter tote!

  156. karen August 3, 2009 at 8:13 am - Reply

    Congrats on your pattern. I would love it to make up in this upholstery weight linen like chocolate brown with big florals fabric that I have had for ever waiting for the right project.
