Mary*Mule Giveaway

IMG_4471_25
Mary*Mule is my shop for handmade fabric accessories. I sewed an apron in 7th grade home economics, and swore I would never touch a sewing machine again. Fast forward about 15 years. After seeing some funky bags at a farmers market and coffee cozies on Etsy, I finally decided I wanted to learn to sew...again.  I bought myself a sewing machine for my birthday and jumped right in.

I started out making coffee cozies, then slowly added tote bags, purses, boxy bags, zipper pouches and some baby bibs. While I often use designer fabrics, I like to use upcycled materials like vintage linens, or clothing cast off to the thrift store and try to use them whenever possible. My goal for the new year is to add more man-friendly items to my shop, and what better material to use than repurposed men's clothing?
Today you will get the chance to win one of my newest manly box bags. It is made from a men's button down shirt and is lined with white twill.
