Grab Bag Giveaway!

In the same vein as my last post, I give you the fabric bag blog giveaway 2008! I've been addicted to making these cloth bags since I heard of this lady's blog: greenbaglady.org (see sidebar for more details...)

Anyways, I've made at least 35+ and I've given away a bunch already, but I thought I'd do a blog giveaway to rid my self of some more. So here's how it works. This is first come, first served, but only 1 per household please. I've numbered the bags 1-10, so when you comment, let me know which bag you want PLUS I want to know where you'll use said bag, and be specific!

Example: Today Sariah and I went to JoAnns to buy more craft supplies and used our bag. I've found most places are happy to use your own bags (esp. if you offer to bag it yourself, which I often do because I'm picky.)

I've actually bought a couple of Target's cloth bags because I like how they zip up, but I found that I can fold my own bags just as small and stash them in my purse. I'm always carring 2 or 3 around. If you want to make your own bags, the pattern is on the other site, and its really easy to do, even with my machine that jams a lot!

So without further ado, the bags:

1 2 3

4 5 6

7 8 9

10

Oh yay! I love giveaways. Well, I would pick bag number 6. I think the apples are super cute and would be great as a picnic bag or to take to the farmer's market. I'll have to look at the pattern and see if I'm skilled enough to make these bags. They look so fun!

I would take number 8. I would probably use it to carry stuff to church - cut-outs for the lesson, etc.

I would love number 2. I would use it to carry my lunch and other stuff to work and to carry my quilting stuff ( block of the month, fat quarter exchance FQ's) to my quilt guild meetings.

I was going to pass, since I make my own, but the fabric on #4 is *gorgeous*! It would probably end up as a Baby Essentials bag (diapers, wipes, burp cloth, extra onsie, & a toy or two) for quick trips or handing the baby off.

Jenny said...

I'll take #9. It looks like it might be a little bit girly, and I don't get much girly stuff around here. :) I'd probably use it to take stuff to church in. Although, the baby essentials bag is a good idea!

Diana said...

You inspire me to make my own green bags! What a great idea! I would like any bag that you have left over. I like them all and I'm not picky! I will use it everytime I go to Costco or the grocery story. Love You! Thanks!

I'll claim #3 for Diana

I really like #2 as the colors remind me of spring and summer days. I would use this for our library trips and also when we pick up our CSA produce each week. It is so great to read about another mom from Madison. I am too, we live near McFarland! Thanks for the chance to win!

The Hof family said...

could you maybe please send me the pattern. They look great. I also love your pillows you made.

Cynthia Z said...

How fun! I'm going to try this out... we've talked about buying some of the tote bags at the grocery store for being environmentally friendly... but these are much cuter, and probably less expensive. Anyhow... just wanted to put the offer out there... we live in Evanston (IL) now, and if you need somewhere for Sariah to chill while you and Doug are at the temple, we're here. ttyl. email me or something if you want to do that. thiamaria@gmail.com

I really like your site. I hope I'm not too late on this. I don't really care which one. I love surprises!
