Giveaway: Patchwork Rose Zippered Bag Online Sewing Class!

Isn't this bag really cute? It's called the Patchwork Rose Zippered Bag and can be found in Bari J Ackerman's new sewing pattern book, Inspired to Sew.

I've been contacted by Judith at Rick Rack and I'm able to giveaway a spot in an online class with Bari J Ackerman so that you can make a bag just like this one! How fun is that for one of you?!

It's an online class (that starts July 22), so if you're new to sewing or have questions along the way, you'll be able to get some guidance and have your questions answered. All the little details about the class can be found here.
 Here's what you'll learn in the class:
  • create a zipper placket;
  • piece and sew patchwork;
  • create inside and outside pockets;
  • make ribbon rosettes;
  • make and attach bag handles;
  • line a bag;
  • construct a handbag
and you'll even get an autographed copy of Inspired to Sew!
Ok, so I'd really like to take this one for myself, but I won't! :)
It's just for one of you.

If you'd like to attend the online sewing class, please leave me a comment.
No hoops to jump through!
I'll choose a winner by random number on Sunday the 17th of July.

Good Luck!
~Jessica

(disclosure: I'm not receiving anything in return for this giveaway. The class and bag looks like something I'd love to do/make, so I thought one of you would really enjoy it too! And when you can win it for free... that's even better!)
