New Pumpkin & Snowman Purses ~ GIVEAWAY!

***Congratulations to Debbie S., our Ragged Pumpkin Purse winner!  We’ll be giving away one more pumpkin purse and two Ragged Snowman Purses in the next few months so check back often for your next chance to win!***
New patterns in the Studio!  Prepare to receive tons of compliments on your festive Ragged Pumpkin Purse and your Ragged Snowman Purse.  Impress everyone when you tell them you made it yourself!  The pattern contains instructions for both designs and is available as a print pattern or a digital download pattern.  Sew both purses in an afternoon and you’re set for the rest of the year!

These bags also make great teacher gifts, hostess gifts, Christmas gifts, or “just because” gifts.  Fill the purse with holiday-themed items instead of using a gift basket for a truly unique gift!  A fun holiday purse can be carried throughout the season or just to special holiday parties.  And once you have this pattern you can easily design new appliques of your own.  Sew a flower purse for Spring with our Bright Plaids!  A beach themed purse for Summer vacations!  Or make it personal by adding an initial to the bag.

Grab one of our new Holiday Bag Ragged Homespun Patterns now while they’re on sale and whip up one of these adorable purses for Fall and one for Winter!   We also offer separate Pumpkin and Snowan Fabric Kits (pattern + all the fabric you need to make the purse).

We’ve made four of these cute bags and would love to give one to YOU!  We’ll give away one pumpkin bag now and the other three bags will be given away in the next few months.

If you’d like to win a Ragged Pumpkin Purse simply leave a comment on this post by Sunday, August 26th.  Are you ready for Fall?  Why or why not?  Ready or not, the official First Day of Autumn is only a month away!  A month is plenty of time to make a Ragged Pumpkin Purse for yourself . . . and maybe one for a friend too!  A winner will be randomly selected and notified via email on Monday, August 27th.

There’s a new page at the top of this blog titled GIVEAWAY WINNERS.  Winners will be listed here using first name and last initial only.  We will continue to contact winners via email and will not post a name to the winners page until we have received a reply email.

Have a great week!

    I love this purse. Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. I love the changing of the seasons, the crisp fall weather, soup or chili on the stove, the beautiful turning of the leaves and the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. As I stand out in nature during this season, I feel the wonder of the Lord.
    I love your fabrics and love working with them. I would love to win one of your bags!

    The air here is starting to get cooler and that feel of fall is in the air! I love these purses! Like every ragged fabric, they are gorgeous!! Fall is my favorite time of year. My birthday is in October and I always said, God done that for me :) He knew I LOVED fall!! When windows are open and the cool, crisp breezes blow through the house and boots and long sleeves are a must. Fire places and Fire pits can be enjoyed by all!! It’s a most wonderful time!!

  8. teresa davis says:

    Autumn is my favorite time of the year in Ohio. The Mums getting ready to bloom, the fall leaves, the gourds and pumpkins waiting to be picked and displayed. The perfect weather for creating, and my favorite pastime is making fall colored rag quilts. I am now on my 3rd one with the help of Jubilee, as it is so hard to find good homespun in the fall colors I love, Thank you to all of you at Jubilee!

    I really love your material. I have brought fat quaters and material from your company and have always been so excited to get it home. Please enter me in your purse give away I love them all but I especially love the one with pumkin. I am a Fall Nut but I don’t sew. But I do love to make primitive items with your material.

  26. judy Grey says:

    I would so love to win one of your bags. The plaid fabrics you have are totally awesome. I ordered some of your material to make other bags and they were a hit with my family and friends. Although it took me a little longer to get the material as I live in Canada and it had to be processed through the border it was well worth the wait.. Now I am trying to decide what colours I want to order for a tablecloth.

  27. Pam says:

    These bags are so cute. I would love to win one!

    I am ready for fall because it is such a beautiful time of year.

    These purses are great! I would love to win one.

  32. Sheila says:

    Beautiful purses! I would love to have one. I love the Homespun cloth.

    I am not ready for Fall. My husband and I both lost our jobs a few years ago. He has found a job and works six days a week and I have been working on creating a line herbal products. I figured it was time to give my passion a try. I also work odd jobs for extra money and this has left little time to prepare.

    I love the Fall season with all the warm colors! I love the season so much that I decorated our dining room with Fall colors, pumpkins, colored leaves and berries and Indian corn.

  33. Gail B says:

    The Ragged Purses are great and I’d love to win one. I like to use Homespun Fabric in some of my hooked rugs and for other hooked items I make..

  34. Barbara Feldner says:

    I would love one of these purses…. oh gosh I would love to win both of them… I love homespun material and could use it for everything I make for my home which I have done.. thanks for chance to win…

Jubiliee Homespun is my favorite website as well!!!!

  36. Grace Lindsay says:

    No we are not ready for fall. We need to seal our logs on our house yet, just too hot before to do it. With the cooler weather we will be working on it soon and then can enjoy the fall and all the beautifull colors! Sure like to purses, would like to make one.

  41. sheila lemke says:

    These purses are so cute. Would love to be a lucky winner. Sheila

  42. Ruth Nicholson says:

    I love your purses. They are super cool!

  43. Rubyanna Kaiser says:

    I love summer! So I never quite feel ready for Fall. Here in the Catskill Mountains of New York the warm season is short, and Fall signals the beginning of a very LONG cold season. So we need all the cheer we can muster as cooler weather sets in. Also–I don’t think I’m quite ready for all the stresses of school and homework poised to descend on our home (we have 5 children in school). It all begins in September–and it seems like summer just began!

    • Rags-n-Rhinestones says:

      Oh, I’ve always wanted to visit the Catskill Mountains! Stay warm this winter!!

  44. Teri says:

    These are totally adorable! I have recently converted my daughter to a rag quilt lover and this would be just up her alley. Her birthday is on September 1 and it would be fabulous if I could win one for her. But I’m still going to buy one of the autumn bags because I would love one for myself! So, so cute!
