Giveaway: Sew Darn Close


Enter to win this gorgeous set of hand-sewn bags, made for carrying calligraphy and art supplies.

This week's prize package includes one 8x10-inch pen roll and a matching 6x9-inch supply pouch. The set is hand made by Sew Darn Close's Emily Close using April Rhodes' "Speck in Stardust" metallic fabric. Use the soft pen roll to store (and travel with) calligraphy nib holders, brushes, pencils, or other pens. Just fill it, roll it, and tie it with the attached strings! The zippered pouch can hold your other calligraphy necessities like nibs and ink pots. The pens in the photo are not included.
