If you've followed my weekly giveaways you've seen a lot of purses but I'm continually surprised that among so many bags there is such variety and creativity. This week's giveaway is from XS Baggage and Co., a shop based in the pacific-northwest that makes handbags, zippered pouches, checkbook covers, key fobs (or key rings), belts and hair accessories--all from fresh and colorful fabrics that are guaranteed to keep the drabness of fall and winter at bay.
You can't find bags like this at the mall, they're individual and exciting, each different from the next and a tribute to homemade quality and crafting.
So before I get too gushy, if you yourself like to sew you may also be interested in XS Baggage's sister site, Fabric Ladies in Pa that sells fabrics like the ones used to make their beautiful bags. You could coordinate till the cows come home!
I have a couple things to offer courtesy of XS Baggage. First, you can take a 10% discount on your order if you type "Scribbit" in the "Notes To Seller" field when you checkout. Second, I have a purse to give away like the one pictured above. The style is called "Emma" and the fabric is called "Watermelon Stripe" so if you'd like a shot at winning this darling Watermelon Stripe Emma follow these simple steps.
How to win:
Before 12 am Monday go to the giveaway entry form on this page and enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.
I'm sorry, but this giveaway is open to those with a U.S. address only.
