Cabrio Tote and a Giveaway!

Attention:  This giveaway is now closed.  The winner will be announced 11/26/10.  Thank you!

A few weeks ago, my mom, my sisters and I took a little weekend trip to do some “Leaf Peeping”.  It was just so amazingly beautiful!  We took a little hike in the mountains and the path up was so pretty.

When we got to the end of the path, this is what awaited us!  So amazing!

I love each change of season and all of the beauty that goes along with it.
I really wanted to make a fun “fall” bag for our trip.  I kept thinking about the Cabrio Tote by Leah at Sew Spoiled.  She made a version in the most beautiful Meadowsweet fabric by Sandi Henderson.  It is just perfect for fall!  Leah, I’m sorry for copying but it was just too beautiful to resist.  I am now totally in love with this pattern.  First of all it is very clear and easy to follow with plenty of pictures.  Secondly, the concept for this bag is genius!

It’s a shoulder bag.

Give the straps a little pull and it’s a backpack!  How awesome is that ?  I have since used this bag running errands with my four kiddos and it is just so nice to be able to change it to backpack mode.

There is plenty of room inside and two interior pockets for keys, phone, etc.

I “heart” this pattern!

    I am a follower of your lovely blog, and...
    I have checked out Sew Spoiled's etsy shop - what great patterns! I love the 'Mommy and Me Backpacks' but since I have 3 boys I don't see any of them using the 'Me' backpack. ;)
    I think I would actually make the 'Versatile Bag' - it's very cool how you can make it according to your needs!

    Thanks for this opportunity!

  6. Wow your bag looks gorgeous! Thank you so much for giving us the chance to win a pattern to make our own! I love the ladybird mini purse pattern, but really want a shoulder bag size but it's not on the website at the moment...

  7. very cool. now a follower.

    I really like the cabrio tote (the one listed above). I think she used to have a shoulder bag I liked too but I don't see that one listed on the site.
