Giveaway Day!

Thank you everyone for participating in my giveaway! We had 231 entries which made me feel so good. told me that the winner was comment #69, which is Sasha from Bath, UK! Sasha said:

“I think i’d use it to keep my Mama cloth in, in-between uses. I think the bag is really pretty so I wouldn’t feel embarrassed leaving it out in a bathroom!”

I will be sending you an email with all the details today Sasha! If you didn’t win but would still like a bag (you guys came up with some seriously good ideas on things to store in them – I think I will make a little list just for fun) you can check them out in my box bag section here. I will be adding more small ones early next week. Thanks again everyone for entering and to Sew Mama Sew! for organizing such a fun event!

Today is May 21st, which means it is the Sew Mama Sew! Giveaway day!

This is the first time that I have participated, so I am super excited! Today I am giving away a custom made box bag with the fabrics of your choosing!

This is just an example of my box bags, but you can check out my current fabrics to see what you will be able to pick from here. All you need to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on today’s post. Just tell me where are commenting from and what you might put in the bag if you win! I am happy to ship internationally, so everyone can enter. The giveaway will be open until May 25th, so keep those entries coming. And you can check out other giveaways on the Sew Mama Sew! blog as well.

If you have not stopped by my blog before, my name is Dani and this is the space where I share all of my crafty goings on. I love to sew, knit, weave, quilt and do bits of interior design. I am also the owner of KSC Designs where I make handmade organizational pieces. I hope that you will continue to stop by now and again! I have lots of links up top to show you what I have been working on.

    I need this for my makeup.

  2. Divya / May 21 2012

    I am Commenting from Chennai, India and this would be great as a cosmetics bag…Thanks

  3. Anne Rita / May 21 2012

    I’m commenting from Norway. I would stuff my embroidery thread in it, Vintage notion fabric would be just perfesct! Great giveaway, thanks.

  4. Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) / May 21 2012

    I’m in Melbourne, Australia and I think that bag would be great for holding my small sewing projects which need finishing off by hand. 🙂

  5. Maaju / May 21 2012

    Oh if I were to win, I’d tote my current project around in the bag. I’ve given all the project bags I’ve made away. I love the Knitmare on elmstreet fabric 😀 it made me chuckle. I’m commenting from Oulu, Finland 🙂

  6. Mhairi / May 21 2012

    I would let my children have it for storing their little things on when traveling. Like pencils, toys or other small things that they “need” to bring. And I only say this because if I win, I might get to open the parcel but after that the bag would disappear (like everything else) into the abyss that is their bedroom. And I love the Sheep fabric.

  7. Danielle / May 22 2012

    I’m from Mississippi. What an awesome bag; I’d love it in the Peacock Lane Wallpaper fabric. I would either use at for my knitting projects or for traveling. Probably both ;). Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. trillium / May 22 2012

    I’d use it for my cosmetics, brushes, etc. It is a beautiful color.

  9. Laura / May 22 2012

    I’m commenting from Barcelona, Spain, and I would put my babies’ diapers on the pouch (the clean ones, of course).

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Anita / May 22 2012

    That would be an adorable bag for my makeup! I’m visiting from NY, thanks for a chance to win.

  11. Karen / May 22 2012

    I would most likely use the bag for carrying around my small knitting on the go project, which is always a sock.

  12. njeri / May 22 2012

    I am writing from Nairobi-Kenya.
    I love having pouches in my bag to keep my keys, phone and lip gloss.

  13. Heather / May 22 2012

    Hi, Dani. What a great bag! I would like to use it for toiletries when traveling, but it might be too pretty for that. Thank you for generously offering this. I am desperately in need of organizing my home, so I will have to stop back by and check out your shop.

  17. Kathleen / May 22 2012

    I am commenting from fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada! This would be my “everything else” bag. Everything I need to tote along that doesn’t fit in my wallet would go in there – keys, comb, chapstick, gum, etc. We hike/camp a lot during the summer, so I don’t carry a purse. I put all my little necesities into a bag I can transfer from pool tote to backpack to tote bag as needed.

  18. Angela Stevens / May 22 2012

    I’m writing from near Washington DC. This bag looks like the perfect size for my little collection of washi tape.

  20. Danijela / May 22 2012

    Hi Dani! How could I not throw in my name for one of your gorgeous handmade items?! 🙂 I’m commenting from the UK, and would totally use your pouch – should I be so lucky as to win – to hold knitting projects. Or small hand-stitching projects. Or embroidery projects. Projects, anyway! I love to have them in handy-to-take along, self-contained project bags and yours are just too lovely!

  40. Binks / May 22 2012

    I’m from Los ANgeles, CA and I think it’s a toss up between filling it with my make-up for crafty stuff. Well I guess both are my essentials.

  41. Sissy / May 22 2012
