(CLOSED) Giveaway Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Bags

It's time for another giveaway. I hope these arrive at someone's doorstep in time for holiday giving:

Each bag comes with a coordinating quilted notecard. I think the clutch below is my favorite. It is made of a deep teal linen and lined with a black and white winter tree print. It fastens in the back with a black button. I raved about this thread sketching technique in my last post, and have added little wool felt leaves to the tree this time.


These next two are drawstring bags. The blue bag features a beautiful red robin print and is lined in solid red broadcloth. The smaller Noel bag is unlined.



Who doesn't love the softness of flannel and minky? The mix of mint and silver appealed to me. This bag is also unlined.


One lucky winner will receive all four bags and notecards. A winner will be drawn late Friday December 4th via Random.org.


TO ENTER: Simply leave a comment below this post. FOLLOWERS MAY ENTER TWICE, because I really appreciate you guys! Just leave a second comment saying that you're a follower. (Be sure to leave an email address IF you do not have a public email address on your blog. Several times in the past I've drawn a winner and have not been able to contact them.) This giveaway is open to everyone, overseas too.

Good luck everyone, and thanks for playing!

I LOVE these bags and especially the cards! I like to make cards out of unusual materials and I love your ideas about the quilted cards and the sewing machine sketching. My very first batch of Christmas cards from three years ago were made with a sewing machine because we were poor and couldn't buy glue! I would love to win these!
