Wanna win this bag?

Need a new bag? (Everybody needs a new bag!)

This is round two of the bag that I currently carry. I am hoping to make more of them and put them up for sale in my (currently empty) Etsy shop.

It's approximately 13 inches wide, 11 inches tall and 3-4 inches deep. There are two open exterior pockets and two interior pockets. It has a magnetic snap closure. The exterior is a heavy weight dark gray-green fabric (yes, looks gray in the photos. It is greenish.) The interior is a made from a sheet and is white with pale pink stripes and roses.

I regularly carry two checkbooks, a small wallet, a 5x7 notebook, a book (often a hardback or trade paperback) and a stack of bills. There is still plenty of room in it.

How can you win it?

1) Agree to carry it for a week (or longer) and give me feedback on what you would change.
2) Leave a comment on this post for one entry.
3) Post about this giveaway on your blog for 3 more.
4) Add this blog to your blog reader for 3 more. (You're on the honor system for this one, I don't know how to check on that!)
5) Include a valid email address if it is not in your profile so I can contact you.

Contest closes July 27. US and Canada addresses only, please. Winners will be announced on Monday.

Me again! I LOVE your bags. They are so so cute.

I'll go subscribe to this particular blog of yours right now! :)

Jess said...

Very cute bag. I would love to use this bag when I go to market and get small goodies there or when I go to song practice. I need a more practical bag that holds more than a wallet and makeup!

Lisa said...

Very nice bag! For me personally, I would want a darker lining, since I can just see that lovely print after the first time a lip stick comes open. I'd hate ruining a lovely bag.

jaime said...

How lovely! Please enter me! I love a bag I can fit a book in :-)

Janel said...

Beautiful bag. Looks like I could actually fit all of my "stuff" in it.

Lisa said...

suey, jess, lisa, jaime, janel- all listed on my spreadsheet of entries! I'm off to make sure I have all of you on MY reader now!

This bag isn't the most colorful ever, if I'd thought I'd be giving it away when I was cutting it out I'd have done better. :) It IS however, a great size, I think.

I'd love to win this - once I hear it can hold a book, I'm sold!

I'd be happy to use it and provide feedback too. :)

(you can read my through my blog - just post a comment and I'll get back to you!)

I loved my first bag of yours. I would love for this beauty to be my second. :)

Janssen said...

Holy crap, that bag is gorgeous. So much so that I've tried to comment three times.

Bree said...

What a Great Bag!!! I buy so many bags and purses. Its another of my addictions. And yes I passed the trait to my daughter. This would be a bag we could both use. Please enter us. I've also added your contest to my blog.

rachel said...

Don't you worry, I will carry it for 4o weeks! I need a new bag, mine has gross baby food stuff on it from my little niece. I want it and it looks washable too!

Amanda said...

Very cute bag! I've been needing a new bag since mine is falling apart and it's perfect for my commutes in the NYC subway :)

The Shiba said...

The Woman would love a second bag. She already uses the first to carry around bunches of stuff, depending the the day and need (she calls it her "market" bag as it carries the stuff she needs to remember for the day vs. her pocketbook vs. her school bags vs. my dog bag that carries all my toys . . . don't ask, it's her system.

Both your sites are already on my blog and I will be sure to mention your contest when I post later today about my thrilling hunt through the woods.

Lisa said...

Janssen, bree, rachel, amanda, and the Shiba's woman- all entered.

Rachel, I often take the paperwork out of mine and throw a diaper and the wipes in it for a quick run into the store. I leave the big diaper bag in the car. (Your blog indicates you may be looking for a diaper bag soon.)

Shiba, this bag is a little bigger than her previous one, I think. Definately more of an everyday kind of thing. This morning I had all the stuff listed in the post, plus a carton a yogurt, a can soda, a package of rubber hair bands, and a small pile of baby clothes for daycare. It's like Hermoine's bag! Perhaps that's what I'll call it if I sell them...

Literary Feline said...

Hi, Lisa! What a great bag! Please enter me! I will be posting about this in the next hour or so on my blog. And I've added this blog to my GoogleReader. Thanks!

windycindy said...

Hello! What a lovely bag! I could use a bag in this color and style. Please enter me in your delightful drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

Kristy said...

Wow, this is gorgeous! I just added you to my google reader, so chalk me up for four entries. I hope I win! It looks like it would make a very chic diaper bag.

Bookfool said...

Oh, sign me up pleasy cheesy wheezy. It's so cute! I promise to use it and let you know what I think. :)

Lisa said...

literary feline, windycindy, kristy, and bookfool all in! I'll be drawing a name later today for the winner.

Bree, I got a great email from someone who found me on your blog-awesome! Thanks a ton.

(bookfool, "pleasy cheesy wheezy" should get you extra votes, but alas I did not put that in the rules.)
