In all of my brain fog, I completely forgot to post about the amazing event happening over at Ellison Lane Quilts! Jennifer has put together a super fun series featuring tutorials and reviews for anything having to do with bags you can travel with. Considering how many retreats are popping up all over the country, many people want to travel handmade when in route and while at events like Sew South, Stash Bash, Sew Down, Sew OK ,Sewtopia or Quilter's Take Manhattan QUILTCON 2015!
So look at the great sponsors...prizes ( YAAY) check out some of the links to the fun bags you can make and link up on Ellison Lane Quilts for some GOODIES you can win!
The Crafty Traveler Blog Hop is brought to you by these Sew South sponsors:
My Crafty Traveler Bag series was the perfect introduction to the blog hop. I shared a favorite pattern with you and now several of my sweet and talented blogging friends are sharing their favorites with you!
From now until Sew South (March 20) I’ll be showcasing some wonderful patterns and tutorials for handmade bags and accessories. Exactly what you need to travel handmade. Whether you’re joining me for Sew South or not, I hope you’ll check out the series and enter to win one of the three great prizes!
