Humbug Bags' Giveaway

Oilcloth Humbug bags
I was recently invited to sew with a group that meets at the Lander library each month, so last week, I loaded my sewing machine and supplies and drove to Lander. The project for September was Humbug bags. The bag was inspired by an English sweet, called a humbug.

I'd seen the bags before, but had never made one. I completed a small bag from the supplies I took to the sew-in as well as bought some kits for larger bags from Mary, the group's coordinator.

Some of the bags were made as gifts, and the ones pictured above are my gifts to four lucky readers.

The bags are approximately 12 inches long and are constructed with oilcloth. They are a good size for knitting or other crafts as well as a ditty bag for travel.

If you want to be included in the drawing for a bag, tell me in your comment which one appeals to you. The winners will be posted on Monday, September 22, 2014, so you have until noon on Sunday to enter the drawing.

  1. What a cute project, and how sweet of you to host a giveaway! While all of the bags are nice, the black and white plaid catches my eye.

  2. I love the comoflauge one. It just reminds me of my son who is finishing up his senior high school year and his plans to join the Army. It also reminds me of those that have and are fighting to keep us safe and out of harms way.

    You've done a good job Nancy.

  4. Hi Nancy, the black and white checked bag is really cute! Thank you for including me in your drawing.
    I have been reading your blog daily for quite some time--discovered it from a knitting blog, I think. I'm a Wyo native (Torrington), now living in North Carolina. Thank you! --Tammy

  9. What a fun project for you gals! Did they take long to make? The design looks fairly simple...and so useful. Both florals are pretty cool patterns!

  10. I like the black and while flora/fauna one. It looks like it'd be great for toting my pens, pencils and markers around. :)

  11. Those look like the perfect size for stitch markers! How long does each one take to make? I'm guessing not long since you are a pro. I really like the black and white one with flowers.

  12. The bags are wonderful. I just bought a new sewing machine and was amazed that it didn't come with anything more than a plastic bag to hold all the accessories. I've been looking for the perfect bag since. I especially like the black and white dots (checks?) because my life is black and white these days, and I am a bit dotty about it.

  13. You are the consummate giver. I like the floral one and the camo one! I love the idea of making them from oil cloth. You're smart AND generous!

  14. Oh my gosh ... too cute. I think I like the first one (black & white) or the last (the camo). But, would be honored to own any one of them.

    Oilcloth sounds like a great idea. You certainly could keep them clean easily.

    You did a great job with them.

  15. So is this what you will be doing with the zippers you bought yesterday. Thanks for the wonderful day out of town, it was good to get away. Bert says there is a lot of color on top of South Pass.
