Does anyone want my mistake? And a contest!

I'm so excited because I'm in the middle of devising some seriously cute, seriously EPIC swag to give away in the coming months leading up to my BOOK RELEASE.

I never get tired of seeing that in print. :)

Anyway, so there I was, sewing along on my merry way while watching True Blood. This is a terrible combination because I quickly became engrossed in the show and zoned out on the sewing. As a result, I jacked up one of the messenger bags I was making. Here's a pic:

(Note the awesome geisha fabric)

You probably can't tell at a glance what's wrong, so I'll tell you. instead of sewing the handles across, I sewed them parallel. The bag still looks like a bag, it still functions like a bag, it just doesn't lay flat when you're toting it. See below photos:

(Man I need to clean my mirrors.)

(It's kinda hard to tell from the picture, but this is a BIG bag.)

Now, I wouldn't feel comfortable giving away a wonky bag in one of my upcoming contests, so I'm just going to give it away for the heck of it (and because I love my followers.) If you want it, just let me know in the comments. If more than one person wants it, then I'll draw a random name on Tuesday and post the winner.

Oh, and if you missed out on my Maggie Stiefvater signed copy of FOREVER, I'm giving away one more over at Pots 'n Pens.

Happy Monday!
