My First Giveaway




Okay, Im gonna do it. I've been working on having some items that I can sell one day on etsy. I want to be really good at making 4 simple design bags and start making them in different colors, fabric and embroidery etc. I don't want to make a whole bunch of random, mediocre stuff. I want just a few real solid good stuff. Makes me a bit nervous though. To celebrate this step forward, I'm having my first giveaway of this zippered bag. I'm happy with the result! It's made out of up-cycled and new materials and lined with white cotton fabric. It is about 12 inches wide and 9 inches tall. It's big enough to fit a travel size baby wipe box and a few diapers. Of course if you don't have children that age, it's still a versatile bag. You can use it to pack smaller items in your suitcase for over night travel or give it to someone in your life who could use it. If you would like to win this bag, please leave a comment on this post and I will pick the winner by random number generator next Friday at 10 pm! (20th)

CONTEST CLOSED.....THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED AND CONGRATULATIONS TO PAULA...HOPE YOU ENJOY THE BAG!
