Zippered Card Wallets and a GIVEAWAY

The giveaway is closed!

I designed these cuties the other day:

Zippy Card Wallets

I think I mentioned them, but they were created entirely from my scraps. Even the interfacing was scrap pieces. Boy am I glad I saved all those random pieces of interfacing. Although I'm not to happy with the wrinkles it created on the inside. See?

Yellow Patchwork Zippy Card Wallet

I'm thinking I'll try sewing in flannel for the next batch.

Zippy Card Wallets

These are perfect for use in a wristlet. I "bought" a wristlet from myself to go out last month, and I've been using it all the time (not just to go out). I keep all my necessities in it, which isn't much. ID, debit card, a little cash, my lip glosses and balms (which are now in an adorable pouch!), a pen, phone, and keys all fit with room to spare. I guess that sounds like a lot of stuff, but it's all small stuff. My regular sized purse is always full of crap, and I like how using the wrislet makes me actually remove receipts and shopping lists before it's packed full of them. However, there's always a pile of change at the bottom, and I don't like having my ID and debit card just floating around all willy nilly.

In the spirit of May Day, I'd like to offer one of these cuties up for a give away! Tell me which is your favorite (as long as it's not the yellow one. I already claimed it!), and I'll draw a winner in the morning. Here is how you can gain entries:

1. Comment with your favorite. Your favorite can be the yellow and orange, but tell me your NEXT favorite also.

2. Blog about it and leave an extra comment with a link.

3. Tweet about it and leave an extra comment with a link. You could follow me while you're at it, but no pressure!

4. Any purchases made from my shop today will earn THREE extra entries. You'll have to leave a comment for each entry. It'll make random number generating much easier.

Here are all the color choices you can pick from:

Red Patchwork Zippy Card Wallet
Red

Patchwork Zippy Card Wallet
Blue/Purple/Yellow

Pink Patchwork Zippy Card Wallet
Pink

Giveaway cut off is tomorrow morning at 8:00 am Mountain time. I'm going to the post office in the morning, so it will be sent right away. Yay!

Those are SWEET, Ashley! You do good work :) I like the blue/purple/yellow one ...

Rubiy said...

Seriously, you MUST stop alerting me to things in your store or on your blog!! I do not have enough pocket money to continue looking!!!! Either that or you could stop being so crazy talented. You choose.

I love them all, but the blue one sings to me.

My relatives and friend flipped over the skivvies bags. You are one amazing chick.

Love the blue one! You rock!

Brooke said...

These are neat! I usually carry a wristlet big enough to hold a diaper (some "wristlet," eh?) So something like this would be helpful in corralling things, like my business cards.

My favorite is your favorite, but I also really like the red one.

Amber said...

These are awesome! My fav is the blue one. They all rock though!

Charissa said...

I love the blue one, but they are all so cute!

Brooke said...

Oooo what an exciting giveaway - the blue/purple/yellow one us so cute. Really great design. I like having something to hold "essentials" so that I can transfer between overloaded purse and overloaded diaper bag or just take on it's own if I need to lighten the load.

I love the blue/purple/yellow one! I think this would be perfect for days I'm at work and need a little cash on me to run to the cafeteria and get my caffeine fix!

Robin said...

These are so cute! I don't carry a purse (not enough stuff that I need) so one of these would be perfect!
Love the blue|purple|yellow one, but my other choices, in order, are the red, then the pink. The yellow is fab too. ;)
Thanks for the op to win one!

These are the cutest thing, EVER!!! I love the blue/purple one. I typically don't carry a purse, but take a tote to work and something like this would be perfect for me when I do errands on my way home. Great work!
