Date Night will be available later this week! I’ll be back with a full description of the bag soon.
I’m headed out for a photo shoot, but before I go I thought I’d post a little giveaway!
If you’d like to win a copy of the pattern, leave a comment below!
If you follow me on Instagram,
comment there and tag a friend and you could both be winners. :)
Winners are Kelli M and Judy W! Ladies, you’ve been emailed! We had so many comments I chose 2 winners here and 2 on IG. Thanks to everyone for entering! Date Night is now available!
For those of you who’ve asked: You will need 2/3 yard for the exterior, 2/3 yard for the lining, 3 yards of woven fusible interfacing, a 18″ x 58″ package of foam batting like Soft and Stable or Bosal In-R-Form, and one 14″ or longer nylon long-pull purse zipper. I used a 16″ zip, and you can use a double-pull zip if you’d like! Watch my video to see how to make your own!
I would love a chance to win the pattern! Thanks for the opportunity :-)
I’ve been dying for this pattern! Would love to win it!!!
Another beautiful bag!! Sad that I wasn’t available to help testing this time but the photos so far have been great. If I don’t win, I will definitely be buying a copy of the pattern
Great Job Erin
This looks like the perfect bag for me, can’t wait for the release :) Thanks for this giveaway!
Love this bag – thanks for the giveaway!
Wanting to make a new purse for days when I don’t want to carry my small Day Tripper. Looking forward to this pattern so I can get started.
This pattern has come at exactly the right time. Been looking for a little bag like this and will so be making it.
This is such a pretty bag. Think I would need to make more than one lol
Congratulations on another lovely bag design! You put so much into your product development, and it really shows in the quality of the instructions and the finished bag.
Yay! Can’t wait to try it!
I will love to win a copy of the pattern. Thanks for the giveaway!!
This bag is awesome!
I love your patterns. I have quite a few patterns I’ve collected and made. Your’s are the best!
I missed out on the testing call but have no doubt this will be another one of your fabulous bags. I have made 36 of the Two Zip Hipster and 6 of the Daytripper. Can you tell I love your patterns?
Baby girl says pick mommy….lol!!! (She just kicked me to prove that’s what she said)
Can’t wait either way!!!!!!
Great little purse!!!

I am really looking forward to making this bag. Your patterns are terrific, and this one looks to be the same.
Love all your patterns. This would make my collection complete. :)
Another terrific style and pattern! It would be great to win a copy, and even better when I make one of these bags for myself! :-) (Very nice work, Erin. As always!)
Love your patterns!
I have been faithfully watching you develop this pattern and would love to win it! I can’t wait to make it!!!!!
OOOH, Erin! I would love to win your latest pattern! I just finished stitching my second Bigger on the inside backpack! I need a new project and this purse is just my style! Thanks for the opportunity to win! ~~Luci~~
Beautiful bag and great choice of fabric combination. I cannot wait to purchase this pattern and make.
Thank you for sharing your crafty goodness.
Awesome! Can’take wait to get the pattern and make one for myself!

This is exactly what I am looking for!
You have the most amazing patterns! It would be such a privilege to win this pattern. Thanks for the chance.

Great pattern Erin – thanks for the chance to win!
Yay, can’t wait!
I’m excited about this pattern. It looks like the perfect size for summer!
Erin the bag looks beautiful!! Thanks for the giveaway!
Everyone will ask me where I got such a perfect bag! Your designs are fun and I learn so much from your instructions. Thanks much!
Count me in…love the bag !!!
I love your work!! Can’t wait to make this bag. I won’t need a date myself but could give to my daughter!
Beautiful and highly desirable.
Love this purse and can’t wait to have a copy of the pattern! The amount of time, work & effort you put into your patterns is very much appreciated and show in the quality of the patterns! Thanks so much!
Looks like a great pattern. I’m putting it on my wishlist.
Love your patterns!! They are the only ones I can sew that actually turn out right!!
Me too! I get soooo frustrated when I use other people’s patterns (99% free – I pretty much don’t buy any other than Erin’s, though) or tutorials. There are never enough photographs, or the instructions are very confusing, or they leave out things like seam allowances, or trimming seams, whatever. Every time I want to cuss and say, “I wish this was Erin’s! :-)
I have recently discovered your website and have been so impressed with your patterns and tutorials. Thanks so much for getting back into sewing, my journey is just beginning!!
Such a cute bag! I need to make one in every color under the rainbow. :)
Love this pattern and that fabric. Thanks!
Woo hoo! I’m going to make this bag. For my daughter. I sent her the photos and she said ‘Perfect’. I have the sewing machine, just hope I have the skills to make such a ‘perfect’ bag. However, somewhere I read that your patterns are very detailed and there are videos.
Barbara – Erin’s patterns are so, SEW easy to follow and make. Not to say I don’t have to pick seams out now and then…but not her fault, mine for not reading correctly. ;-) I used to be afraid of zippers, but not now after making several of Erin’s patterns/tutorials!
Can’t wait to get this pattern. I have been wanting to make a bag with a strap/zipper like this, but was kind of stumped on the construction. Thanks for doing the work for me!
Love love love it! Hope to win!
Oh my oh my what a wonderful little bag!!
Now all I need is a date!
I love all your bag patterns!! I would love to be a tester for u. And I would live a chance to win this pattern!
I LOVE this bag. Would love to win a pattern. Thank you so much!
I like the size of this purse.
Thanks for the giveaway!
This bag looks amazing! I love the fabric you chose for all your samples of it. I’d love to win this pattern. Thank you for giving away some copies.
Hot Dog! I’ve been waiting for this! I’ve got the date, now I just need the bag! Thank you, Erin, for your fabulous patterns!
Love all your patterns and win one would fab!
I just received my new sewing machine by courier this morning and my computer has lots of ink (especially blue) so I AM READY!
this bag is terribly cute! i would love to have the chance to whip one up! :)
My daughters and I, and now my sister and my niece, have made various bags from your patterns, and we all love them! So looking forward to this pattern!!
I love your patterns! Let me be a winner!!! :)
Love the IG photo shoot pictures! Would love a copy of the pattern too and will then definitely have a date night!

What a cute bag! Of course I’d love to win a pattern :-) Thanks for the chance to try. :-) xx
This bag is awesomely beautiful! I LOVE all the pics!
I would love to win this cute pattern!
I have made bags from two of your patterns, and by far your instructions/photos are the most comprehensive and easiest to follow of any other patternmakers – success is guaranteed! This looks like another I could make, too. Thanks for all your work.
I have been looking for a pattern just like this one, and I know the design will be spot on with easy instructions. I would absolutely love to win the pattern!
Love love love it. Hope it’s me!!
Love your patterns. This will be another hit.
I love your patterns with the thorough instructions and loads of photos. The new bag looks wonderful and I’d love to make it!

Pick me! Pick me! All of what you’ve done so far is great. I don’t know that I want this bag for myself but know others who would enjoy it as a gift.
Another beautiful bag. Congrats on another pattern.
Thank you for the giveaway!
Oh la la what a nice bag!!!
Hope to win a copy of the pattern.
I would love to win the pattern. Thanks for the chance! It looks like it will sell well!!
I love, love, love your patterns. I have several of them. I always get tons of compliments on the items I make with them. You rock!
I’m so excited about this bag! Can’t wait to make some for myself and as gifts for friends. I get so many compliments on your bags – people think I’m this awesome sewer, and I tell them “It’s not me – it’s the patterns!”
That’s pretty much what I say, too! I need Erin’s cards to hand out. I need to get one of the shirts with the website on it! :-)
Great bag – just what I needed for my last outing.
Great pattern cant wait to try it!
Nice slim purse pattern. Would like to try it
Another wonderful bag! Can’t wait to make it!
Beautiful looking … Wish I could a free pattern
Love the look of this purse! Can’t wait!
I would love to win this pattern. I have enjoyed making every pattern I have purchased from you.
Love, Love, Love this bag!! Can not wait to make it!!!
Looks wonderful. Would love to win !
Love your patterns, made a few of them.
I love your patterns. I can’t wait for the big unveil.
I love your patterns…I have tried several other “brands” and designers and just get frustrated.
I have several of your patterns and have made quite a few bags from each…very well written and concise…love it that you have a new one out…thanks.
Peggy, the same thing always happens to me! If I have a gift giving occasion, I send the Erin’s pattern page to the person and tell them to take their pick and give me fabric ideas. I don’t even send them elsewhere since I have no guarantee of success!
Instead of Erin’s “No, I won’t hem your pants!” shirt/sticker, I need one that reads, “No, I will not make anything unless Erin is the designer!’ LOL
This looks like another great pattern. I am so happy I bought the hipster and the essential wristlet patterns and completed the neat n tidy zipper pouch tutorial. Your patterns are so easy to follow and I have made several of them to give to my children’s teachers as end of the year gifts. Thanks for all the hard work!
Your bag is adorable!!!
I’ve bought several,of your PDF patterns, can’t wait to see this one! Looks great!
Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! I love this design! You are very talented!
I would love to win this pattern! I have some awesome fabric I’ve been holding onto for the perfect project that I think would work great for this! *crosses fingers*
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your designs! Yay for Date Night!
Such a cute bag! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern!
I really love that bag! Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Love this bag! Hope you have a great photo shoot.
What a fun purse pattern! I’d love to try this one.
Can’t wait to make this pattern. I’ve been stash building all week while I’ve been home and I’ve got several fabrics I think would be PERFECT for this purse.
Love the bag, cant wait to do this! :)
I can’t wait to see how you did those handles, they look fabulous!
the bag looks great, thanks for the chance to win!

Love Love your patterns!!
I have material ready and now just need to win the pattern.
This looks like perhaps just the ticket to replace my wearing-out every day bag! I’m looking forward to seeing details of this pattern, whether it’s because I won it or not. :-)
Hallo Erin, ich habe einen ganz tollen Stoff mit Mopsmotiven gekauft, der sehnsüchtig darauf wartet, eine Date Night zu werden!
