This is a fun event, which I will be guest posting for in June over at Sew Sweetness to get you sewing a purse for the summer! Here’s how it works:
1. Every weekday in June, there will be 2 amazing guest bloggers scheduled to share with you a purse sewing pattern review. The review will contain detailed information about what they thought about the sewing pattern, modifications they made, what kind of interfacing they used, and more! Get inspired!
2. Even more exciting…THERE WILL BE A GIVEAWAY EVERY WEEKDAY IN JUNE! That’s right, 20 GIVEAWAYS! Your Giveaway Fairy Godmother is Kim from My Go-Go Life – she has some unbelievable giveaways planned!
3. At the end of the event, you will get a chance to show off your purse in order to win some amazing prizes!

1. Check out all the purse pattern reviews throughout the month and get inspired to sew up a purse of your own!
2. Join the Purse Palooza 2012 Flickr Group.
3. Link up your completed purse to the Flickr Group BETWEEN JUNE 4th and JULY 11th. Your purse must be created and photographed between those dates; purses made prior to June 4, 2012 will be disqualified. The purse may be of your own design, or made from a sewing pattern.
4. You may link up to 2 views of the same purse. More than 2 photos of the same purse will be removed from the group.
5. There is no limit to how many purses you may enter, as long as they were made between June 4th and July 11th, 2012.
