new bags and a giveaway!







 These first three bags have just been added to the shop.  
I have been sewing away every spare moment,
not allowing myself to start Christmas decorating
or cookie baking,
until they were done.
{Oh, and 'miss scarlett' has a new special price.}
~
In the spirit of Christmas,
I would like to offer a giveaway
of a similar bag ~ it was made up as a sample
of the new spring-loaded frame closure bag style.
It measures approximately 14"w x 9"h x 4.5"d,
is fully lined,
and has 8 inner pockets,
plus,
it is embellished with a vintage button front & back.
My perfectionist side will not allow me to sell
this prototype in the shop,
but my practical side tells me it's a perfectly
useful bag that will serve someone well as a 
knitting/crochet/project bag or handbag.


If you have any interest in giving 'her' a home,
please let me know in comments
and I will enter you in the giveaway~ international
readers are welcome to enter.
I promise to pop a couple little surprise gifts
in the bag as well.
Be sure you leave your email address
so I can notify the winner.
I will accept comments until Friday, 11/16/11
and will announce the winner sometime Saturday.
Best wishes to all,
Deb

12/17/11::Thank you so much, everyone, for taking part in the giveaway
and also for the kindest words, which are so very encouraging!
Comments are now closed, and I will be announcing
a winner this {Saturday} evening.
Best wishes :)

    OMG!! Are there no ends to your talents, these bags are beautiful, I especially like the second one down...so pretty! 
    I have a lovely home here in Yorkshire that Im sure your giveaway bag would love to move to! Just think how excited she would be to be all wrapped up and nestled in on an aeroplane, flying over the Atlantic to her new home where she would be very loved and cared for. And all the adventures she could have on days out over my arm, after all she is far too pretty to spend her life as a knitting bag!!!
