There are no patterns ready to give away yet. The instructions are still being written, re-worked and revised. I keep coming up with new variations that require MORE INSTRUCTIONS!!!
However... I was looking for a cloth to cover a table the other day, and found my SECRET STASH of cotton moleskin fabric!!!
It's a finite resource, but I thought I might make up what I have into "foldable pressing hams" for the shop.... while stocks last, and all that. Get in quick.
AND I THOUGHT I'D GIVE AWAY A SET OF THEM..... BUT.... I need a bit of help, so we're going for a bit of an Excalibur approach here.... "Whomsoever cometh up with the best name for this bag shall rule the ironing board, armed with the mighty MOLESKIN!"
What started out with the working title "Curved Hobo" has morphed and changed with different variations of fabric, interfacings and strap design. It now needs a snappy name that says it all...
It's a practical, roomy bag with inside zip and compartment pockets and a zipped closure at the top. It looks a bit girly. It can be made into an unstructured Hobo shape, a structured bag or scrunched shoulder bag with a belt...
.. and even this basket shape - with purse feet and zippered closure. You can see this bag in action here...... or a soft and simple shopping bag. Can you see my problem here? Are you ready to rise to the challenge..?
I need a name - preferably one word. I'd like it to describe the bag (rather than just be a girl's name or something). The giveaway will run until we have that EXCALIBUR moment!!! The winner will win a moleskin pressing set, and then I'll do a random number generator thingy for another moleskin pressing set so that all participants are in with a chance. So that's actually TWO giveaways, isn't it?
And just out of interest, I'd also love to hear which variation is your favourite...?
