A Giveaway!

The clear out continues... I am hoping my eldest will help out on a trip to Oxfam this afternoon. Parking can be difficult so it's best to have 2 people just in case I need to keep driving round the block, dropping him off with a boxful of stuff on each circuit!

During my clear out I found this bag.

When I started my first Etsy shop (back in October 2007 - so long ago!!) I wasn't sure which of the many things I make I wanted to sell. I originally made a few bags and this one has been carefully stored away ever since I decided that bags didn't really fit the style of my shop.  I have a couple of others that I use myself, almost every day, some have been given as presents, and I wondered if any of you lovely people out there in blogland would like this one.

The pattern is my own, although fairly standard I think. The bag is a good size, 12" high with a base 14" x 4" stiffened with some weird compressed fleece stuff so it keeps its shape. The handles are long enough to go over your shoulder even if you are wearing a coat (can you tell I get annoyed if they're not?!).  The fabric is a pink-purply cotton cord lined with a cotton print and with a 2 section pocket on the inside.  Have I sold it to you yet?

There are no entry requirements to the giveaway as such, this is just a thank you for turning up and reading my witterings.  But you do need to let me know that you want to enter... leaving a comment on this post would be the easiest way if you can.  However, I do know that there have been issues with commenting lately, so alternative ways of contacting me are via my ffflowers page on facebook, via my ffflowers shop on Etsy or my ffflowers shop on Folksy, or good old fashioned e-mail via the link on my contact page here.  Please make sure I have a way of contacting you should you be the winner!  Closing date for entries is Sunday 24th July, I will draw the winner on Monday 25th July.  I am happy to post anywhere so please don't feel you can't enter if you are not in the UK.
