Free Giveaway - Little Hippy Bag

I've been making "Little Princess" bags for my nieces out of fun and bright fabrics for Christmas, and in a flash of inspiration have made a "Little Hippy" bag from batik fabrics that I thought I'd offer as a giveaway!

The Bag:

This particular bag is approx. 7 1/2" wide by 8" tall. It fastens shut with a button and tab. It has a cellphone/ipod/whatever pocket on the back (pictured with a cell phone in it, the cell phone is not included in the giveaway!). Inside it has a tall thin pocket suited to DPNs or pens and a wider, shorter pocket suited to rolls of quarters or a folded knitting pattern. The double pointed needles also don't come with the bag, thanks! It is outline quilted and 100% machine washable. It has a shorter strap on it, 36"--long enough to make it a sock knitting bag if worn on the should but also suited for any young girls on your gift giving list! The lining acutally fits correctly in the bag, I'm not sure what is going on with it in this picture.

The Rules:

One entry per person. To enter you must visit my etsy shop (you don't have to be a registered etsy user) Hamncheezr. Then leave a comment here on my blog telling me what your favorite item is, and a very brief explanation of why. I am interested in the feedback! Also leave in your comment your name and e-mail address in a non-harvestable form ( me at server dot com ).

Pretty simple, huh? If you give me a plug on your own blog (for instance, "Des is giving away a bag, go see!") and the link, you'll be rewarded with an extra entry. Contest runs Nov. 15th thru Dec. 1st! Winner chosen at random!

Winner will be notified by Dec. 2nd, and if not heard back from by Dec. 7th another winner will be chosen!

  4. I like your "Quilted cotton XL bag/purse Fun'N'Bright Novelty fabrics and Cow lining." I'm a grandma and I know how much my granddaughter would love this bag. The characters are fun and familiar. She comes to visit Granda and needs a beautiful bag to carry her essential big girl things. (wink) You can find me at LeeoftheWind at AOL dot com. I can also be found at my Etsy site, Come see me, if you'd like! I love your work!!

  5. I would have to say that my favorite is the "I'm so Blue" bag. I absolutely LOVE all shades of blues, so it was an easy pick for me! I crochet and spin and most of what I make is in blue! When you look at all the colors of yarn I have, blue is always the most yarn I own! My etsy site is: Come see my work! I would love to hear from you! You have lovely items!

  6. I actually like all your stuff....but especially the bags. I do like the one quilt that reminds me of a log cabin quilt...all the bags are great tho.


  7. I love the URBAN DECADENCE surreal wall art piece the best. I have always been fascinated by three dimensional pieces in both my knitting and my quilting. If you had some 3D bags, I'd be really, really tempted by them. Judi

  8. Hi, My favorite is the beautiful Scrappy and Blue Batik baby's so cheerful and each square looks like a door you can walk through and explore. I imagine a baby or child would love having this quilt for their own. I know I would! I've always wanted a quilt and never had one, lol. My addy is DarkForestAz at aol dot com. Pam in AZ

  9. Oh, wow, you are very talented and creative!I've always wanted to learn to quilt but I can't even keep buttons sewed on my shirts lol. I love the Claddagh bag with the rhinestone cross. My addy is hindsfeet_highplaces at hotmail dot com. Louise in California

  10. Personally, i'll say the I'M SO BLUE Quilted cotton tote/purse or knitting bag in Emo Blue with Angel studded accent! It's not emo at all! I think it's such a fabulous bag & my favorite color is blue after all. Love that it's so nicely made & i love the patchwork print.

    Love to win one for my niece!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. Hi, I am friends with Jenn and she told about your site. I love the I'M SO BLUE BAG, the Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra (I think that was all of the "Ra's) and the War is NOT civil one.

  20. Lori said: Ooooooo - I like the 'Little Hippy Batik Quilted Cotton Sock Knitting Bag' with the paisley lining the best. I'm partial to anything remotely suggesting hippy (because I am one - lol), it's just the right size for carrying small projects and it reminds me of some of the clothes I wore in college back 'in the day'. Gosh, I still wear some of those same types of clothes! Love those batiks! Loriclaydancer at aeroinc dot net
