Giveaway Day is Here!


The Giveaway is now closed, thank you so much for visiting, and thanks to all of you who participated. I will be announcing the winners soon.

This is my very first giveaway and I am so excited! I am giving away 3 adorable zippered wristlets, each one unique and handmade by me. I will be randomly choosing 3 names once the giveaway closes on December 17th and contacting the lucky winners by email. Anybody can enter, and I am willing to mail these anywhere in the world. Please check the bottom of this post for entry instructions. This giveaway was organized by the wonderful people at Sew Mama Sew; click the giveaway button on my sidebar to see a complete list of all the participants.


These handmade wristlets have silver plated double chain handles and brightly coloured zippers. They are made of super soft upcycled dark brown leather from a vintage skirt and a Japanese Echino printed cotton. The lining is bright pink cotton with a card pocket inside. They measure about 7" by 3.5" and as you can see, they have enough room to hold a phone, a small camera or some makeup basics, along with a little cash or cards. They are also long enough to fit standard pens and pencils. These little wristlets are great for a night out when you don't want to carry a purse, and they also work as organizers for a few special items, slipped into a bigger bag.


I have a lot of ideas for future projects and I am really looking forward to sharing them. If you are interested in seeing more of what I'm doing please subscribe to my blog. Thank you all so much for visiting. Good Luck!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated, comments are now closed, and I will be announcing the winners soon.
