Purse Giveaway!!!

Hi all,
Well, for those of you who follow my blog you will know that I have been making purses like mad! Well, I ended up with a spare purse! I love it but I have three of my own so I really don't need another! So I have decided to share!

As a thank you for all of my faithful readers, and looking at my counter and map I would say I have a few, almost 3,000 views since I put the counter on in October! And almost 20 countries! WOW I am amazed!

So here is what I would like to do... At the bottom of this post, please leave a short comment, nothing fancy just your name, and a hello. I will take all of the names submitted and in two weeks, I will draw a name out of the purse and the person drawn gets the purse! I will happily send it to you where ever in the world you live! I will post the winner on my blog on Thursday January 22nd.

So if you would like to see, here are 3 pictures of the purse you could win, the first shot is the front, the second is the side detail and the last is the inside, the purse measures 10 1/2" long x 5" wide x 8" tall. it has two outer pockets, and 9 inner pockets and is expandable with the side ties.




As always,

Thanks for stopping by!

Ginny

Hi,

I've made the blocks from your tutorial. I used batiks, too! Now I just have to sew them together into a quilt.....

Love the purse and thanks for the block pattern. Easy!

Beautiful!!

Ellen in MA said...

Love your purse! Do you need to know how to sew well to make it? I don't tackle more than a 1/4 inch seam and never any zippers! Once again, great bag!
Ellen in MA

Ginny said...

To reply to Ellen,
the purses are really easy, I had never done anything but quilting before making them, they are sewn with a 1/4 inch seam and no zippers involved! Plus you use fusable fleece for the batting so no batting shifting around while you sew!

I love, love, love this bag. You did an amazing job! I also thank you for the link to her patterns. Oh, I hope that I win this one!
I have added you to my own "blogs I follow." You are in inspiration and not too far from me.

Love the purse and I'd use it a lot. I am always looking for a new quilted purse.

Lovely purse!

Gladys Wahl said...

Great job on the purse. I've thought of making one but cant seem to get off these charity quilts. Maybe I will be lucky and win one LOL.Thanks Gkadys

Annette said...

Ginny, thank you so much for the very easy block pattern. I had two bali pops and have used one to make your design. I am now going to use the other and make the quilt larger to give to my hubby's brother and his wife for Xmas! Woohoo! Two less gifts to buy and so much less holiday stress. Nothing like planning ahead!
I love your purses! I have never tried a bag or purse but you inspire me. More great gift ideas, thank you. They would be very popular amongst my noncrafty friends! Thank you for the link to the pattern.
Please enter me in your draw. I would love to show it off!

Hi, my name is Annette too. I love the purse and your blog just gives me a sense of serenity. I know that with your busy life that may sound odd, but it sounds like you have a very nice life and of course, you do have a nice hobby. I am hoping to get back into quilting and sewing. Your blog spot motivates me. My email is amcca8144@aol.com thanks

Finally a purse with pockets inside. I hate making purses so I'll cross my fingers I win this one. Would you consider making one anyway for a small fee if I don't? I'll even send the fabrics! ;
