Drawstrings Giveaway!!

Remember this beautiful drawstring bag?



Today I'm excited to introduce you to Wanda over at Drawstrings! Not only is Wanda a skilled seamstress, she blogs, she knits, and she's a grandma just like me. :)  I met Wanda through Ginny's weekly Yarn-Along and was thrilled when she offered to make one of her beautiful drawstring bags for me to review! After taking a peek at the different bags and fabric selections available in her Etsy shop, we corresponded and settled on one of her medium-sized bags in a cheerful green seersucker fabric lined with an equally cheerful yellow polka dot seersucker. Here's a pic of the same fabrics sewn with the yellow on the outside:



Here's a peek at my bag in action:



Ever since it arrived, I have enjoyed using my Drawstrings bag and just love how the ribbon drawstrings work to close up my bag securing my projects especially when I'm out and about. It's nice and roomy with enough space to fit yarn, knitting patterns, my implements pouch, and, of course, my WIP. :) Thank you, Wanda!

Drawstrings bags come in several different sizes (small, medium, and large) and can be used in all sorts of ways...



According to Wanda, each bag is a custom order which means that no two bags are alike! She uses the highest quality cotton for the bags and grosgrain ribbon for the ties. If you do not see a bag in her Etsy shop that suits you, just contact her for a custom design; she'll work within your color palette and design to create a bag for you -- how fun! And if you'd like, monogramming is available at an additional charge. Wanda is offering a 15% discount on any purchase -- use coupon code "DOLEVALLEY" through June 6!

In addition, Wanda is offering one lucky Happy in Dole Valley reader a small Drawstrings bag! The winner may discuss fabric preferences with Wanda in order to get the perfect custom bag. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post! This giveaway will be open through Tuesday, June 10; I'll reveal the winner on Wednesday, June 11! Good luck!

PS: Watch for Wanda's ad in Ravelry's notebook section!
