Announcing the Arena Bag Raw Edge Sew-Along! This will be a 2-week sew along starting Friday, February 18. The first week we will select our materials and hardware, discuss strap options, cut everything out, and get our zipper prepped and selected strap made (my least favorite part). Week two we will make the card slots, assemble the panels and finish the bag.

Each week I will be sponsoring giveaways. These might be a FQ of one of my favorite materials, sewing notions, or other goodies. It's super easy to enter - just post to Instagram with the hashtags
#ArenaBagRE and #ABREsewalong or you can email them to me at kdillhandmade@gmail.com. Winners will be chosen by random draw from among the entries recieved that week.

If you don't have the pattern yet, you can grab your copy here.
Use the coupon code SEWALONG for a special discount. (Note, this discount code applies to all of my sewing patterns for the duration of the sew-along)

If you have any sewing friends who would like to join us, please let them know about the sew-along. The more the merrier!

Sew-along emails will be sent out on Fridays. Sign up for my newsletter
to make sure you receive all the info for each week.

I'm so excited to do this sew-along with you all! And, I can't wait to see what you make!! ❤️
