Sew-Along Prize Linky

A big thank-you to all of you who read or sewed along in the Cargo Duffle Bag event of the past few weeks. It’s been a lot of fun to share in the triumphs of those of you who were new to bag making or had been plotting to sew this pattern and just needed a little nudge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has made!

The Prizes

Three lucky Cargo Duffle makers will win a $30 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop or one of two mystery packages from Anna Graham of Noodlehead, each with a pattern and the necessary supplies to make the project. (For my full post on the prizes, click here.)

Edit (4/4/2019): This giveaway is closed. The winner of the FQS gift card is Shena, and the winners of the Noodlehead prize packages are Kim and Amy!

Winners will be picked at random from the linky (see below) that will run through March 31, 2019. This prize draw is open internationally. If someone outside of the United States wins one of the Noodlehead prizes, he or she will be emailed a gift card from the online retailer of his or her choice in lieu of the package from Noodlehead. (It’s just too darn expensive to ship stuff internationally.)

A Look Ahead

Gosh, I’d love to sew along again with you all. Maybe we can reconvene this fall for more bag making? I realized I own—ahem!—three Noodlehead patterns that I have yet to make: the Super Tote, the Go Anywhere Bag, and the Caravan Tote. Then there’s the Forage Bag, which, like the Cargo Duffle, is offered free on the Robert Kaufman site. Any preferences on what we tackle next? Let me know in the comments.

And of course, if you couldn’t sew the Cargo Duffle along this time, the posts regarding each step will always be available here on From Bolt to Beauty.

  1. I read along on schedule, but I didn't sew until this past weekend. LOL Your hints were so very helpful. I don't think I would have been able to make this bag without them. And I love the lining!! I would have not have been happy with a bag without the lining. I'll sew along again in the future. The Forage Bag is probably the one only that peaks my interest.

  2. I loved your Sew Along even though I could not participate. If I ever do that bag, I will for sure get back to your helpful tips and detail pictures. Thank you!

  3. Each one is sew cute!!! I'm looking forward to seeing all the finished bags at the end of the month. I have the Super Tote pattern and would love to do that as a SAL.
