Five Years! It’s my Blogoversary GIVEAWAY

I woke up this morning to my calendar telling me it’s my Blogoversary! This was news on a few fronts: A. I definitely did not remember the date. B. I definitely had no idea that I had a calendar alert set for such a thing! C. How would I celebrate?! Here’s what I decided…it’s all about FIVES! 


There will be FIVE WINNERS who will choose FIVE PATTERNS each. All you have to do to enter is tell me your TOP FIVE in sewing! Top five what you might ask…whatever you want! You can name your top FIVE FABRIC DESIGNERS or your top FIVE SEWING TOOLS or your top FIVE PLACES for sewing inspiration! Plus you get FIVE BONUS entries if your list is something that no one else has listed! Creativity counts my friends:) Just leave your TOP FIVE in the comment section.


My trusty sidekick is napping now but he’s excited to read your entries and randomly draw FIVE WINNERS! Entries open for FIVE DAYS until June 21! I’ll be sharing some fun things during those five days. Get ready!

Entries are open internationally. One entry per person:) The winner will get to choose whichever FIVE May Chappell patterns that their heart desires!

Meet Cased

It’s new pattern week! And also new online store week! I’m quite excited to show you lots of great new things. First up is a pattern that was born out of personal need. I like to have lots of pens on hand for doodling and such, but it makes me crazy when I can’t easily see them all. I decided that I needed a little case that would lay open for easy viewing but also quickly pack up for on the go travel! Meet Cased!

Cased1

This case is perfect for pens and stationery supplies. It also works well for a little sewing kit for class. Or a travel hexie kit! Or journaling loot! Or jewelry for a trip! Really, the options are endless.

cased2

This is another pattern in my Mini May line. These are intended to be completed in just a couple hours. It uses a hard frame clutch (you can find those here and here). I personally find the frames with screws to be a bit sturdier, but I use both!

cased3

You might be wondering what this lovely fabric is?! It’s from Alison Glass and called Seventy Six. I loved the fussy cutting opportunities and the scale is perfect for these little cases. I had to actually stop myself from fussy cutting every piece.

The pattern is available in my shop in both PDF and printed paper and coming soon to your local quilt shop! Use code FREESHIP17 for free shipping! And remember to use #casedbag on social media as you create your cased bags! Warning, you can’t make just one…
