July Stone Soup giveaway....

Remember a few months ago when I posted about joining in The Stone Soup Challenge, hosted byLaura Bray? Well I have found some lovely people through the challenge and have bought some great things from fellow artisans.

This month I am hosting the monthly give-away. I am offering this drawstring bag in my strictly limited edition print.



All you have to do is comment on this post, telling me what you would use this bag for if you won it. I will draw the winner at random on 31st July.



If you want a second chance to enter the contest, go to one of my shops then come back and tell me which thing is your fav. Good luck everyone :D

What a beautiful bag! Would make a great project bag for my knitting.

BeadyPool said...

I know they are supposed to be knitting bags, but I would use it to put my sons shell collection in that "ganma" gave him.

Julia Guthrie said...

I'm so greedy coz I already won a bag from you before! lol
But I have to tell you Nic, my Husband stole it away from me!!! Yes, he uses it to carry his diary & paperwork in to & from the car park (to the shop).
Even tho one of our friends (owns the shop opposite ours), Becky, laughed at him for using a girls bag, he likes it coz it's the right size for his stuff! ROFL...

So you see, I do need another one. I was going to hang it on my door handle (of my art studio) & keep my fabric scaps in.:)hehe...

The Children's Jewellery Company said...

I would use it to store all my bits of ribbon in, I have no idea where to put them at the moment!

Jean said...

My favourite item is still the fish mini tote bag you made for my grandaughter.
If I won the bag I would use it to keep my knitting in as it is in a Tesco carrier bag at the moment!

KnitCave said...

Oh, the bag is beautiful and I love the colours. It would make a fabulous project bag for my dragon drop spindle.

BabyLongLegs said...

Is it too small to stash pear cider in??

BlueBoxStudio said...

I'd use it to carry all the bits and bobs from my workshop to the house so I didn't keep dropping everything and losing things. It's so pretty I'd be sure not to forget it and who knows, I might actually get a few things finished if I spent less time trotting from one place to the other all the time.

BlueBoxStudio said...

Ooh, hold on, I've a new favourite .. the blue floral Sanderson print that you have in your Etsy and Folksy shops. I go away a lot on business and this would be perfect to stash all those things I can't live without overnight .. mobile charger, camera batteries, little book I keep for 'in the middle of the night' designs...

Designs by Isis said...

What a great giveaway - I love the bag. Hmmm....I know - I'd put my secret chocolate stash in it. Have to hide it otherwise the kids eat it all & then where would I be late a night with a good book & a cup of tea & no choccie to dunk !!!

Designs by Isis said...

And just to be sure ....(lol) I have also visited your site & my fave is the red fish zippered project bag - now that's really cool !

TomatoTea said...

Hooray for giveaways :D I've been itching to try out crocheting some socks, so i'd use the bag for that! Pretty boring compared to the other ideas here! Particularly like the story of the gentlemen who 'borrowed' his Wife's bag that she won previously! haha! I really like the sheep fabric project bag and notions case on Folksy. Would love to see a needle case in that design too, would be great as a set for a knitter or crocheter :D

Swirlyarts said...

I'm sure the cardboards tags I use for the backing of my recycled tags would look fab in there. That's if it doesn't get pinched by the girls first!

Miffy said...

why a sock project of course ;)

danielle said...

Since i am on crutches these days, everything I carry must be in a bag. so it would definitely be a knitting project bag for me....and I have a project that needs a bag!!!

wenat said...

It would be a perfect size for my portable sock project -- and I always have one on me or in one of my bags! What a beautiful fabric!

katerina said...

Just Beautiful! Love the pattern - I too would use it as a knitting/crochet project bag to put in my purse so things don't get all jumbled - and I think it'd be perfect for the headband I'm starting this weekend!

Kristen said...

Cute bag! I'd use it for sock knitting project.

Kristen said...

My favorite item is from your etsy shop. I love the little project bag with the sheep on it. :)

Turtle said...

gorgeous! I would so happily use it as my daily take with me work in progress bag. I like the variety you have in your shop as well. The japanese sheep fabric is so cute, and love the zippered cube bag as well.

Kitschy Coo said...

You know how much I love that fabric so I'd love to win this bag! Maybe I would use it for holding kittens and puppies (in an ideal world), or maybe just buttons or something.

I've always had a soft spot for your fishy bag :)

cksknitter said...

I would use this bag for my socks in progress knitting bag. I love the graphic print!

catsmum said...

I'd use it for it's intended purpose - the hold yarn or a small WIP

KSee said...

what beautiful fabric you use. I went to your store and I love the sheep bag. I too would use it for one of my sock projects. It is a must as I have kittys and like to keep the yarn fur free.

Nalamienea said...

So pretty! It's definitely a knitting bag!! :)

sue29 said...

I would love this bag to keep my projects on the move in as I always knit when a passenger in the car.It would make a real change from getting a carrier bag tangled up with my walking stick - imagine!

Clare said...

What would I do with it? What would I DO with it?
I'd love it, I'd treat it like a princess and take it out on dates :)
It's a very cute bag!

Knitmomma said...

Ooh, pretty! My daughter walked in as I was admiring it, and loves it too - I may have competition if I win!

I would use it for my socks-in-progress, which are currently in a gallon ziplock bag.

Knitmomma said...

Favorite of your products? We love the one you are giving away...other favorite (I think it's a tie) is the Blue floral Sanderson fabric knitting bag.

AmIAKnitterYet said...

great bags! i love most of them. The fish, the sheep, the one you are giving away.

I would probably use it to keep a sock project in the car in case a knitting moment arises.
Thanks!

RoxieDot said...

I would use this bag when popping to the shop and just wanting to take purse, phone and keys... the rest of the time it would be used for transporting astronauts and dinosnores round the house by my gorgeous girl! x

Bex said...

I have a bag addiction, but such a pretty one would most certainly hold one of my current knitting projects as I went about my daily life!

nifty thrifty said...

Oooh - lovely. Mmmmm there are a gazillions things that I could use this for: holding change at my craft stall at all the events I am hosting, a place to store my handmade ceramic pendant pieces before I turn them in to necklaces, a secret place to hide chocolate goodies so that my daughter doesn't snaffle them first, a cool bag to take to the pub to hold my essentials ... you see what I mean! Love it it's gorgeous.

Spinningfishwife said...

You could hide a small rock in it, for bashing bone idle Hubbys on the head????? The police would never think to look for the assult weapon in such a pretty bag.

littleblackduckblog said...

knitting is a mystery to me so it'll be a crochet project for me!!

vickie said...

such a gorgeous bag this would most likely be a home to all the beanies i knit. vbarton24 at gmail dot com

knittingdancer said...

I love the colors in that bag. I would use the bag to carry a small knitting project.

Mollimoo said...

Gorgeous fabric! I would use it as a home to all of my fabric buttons for my Folksy shop! x

Tracey and Paul said...

Cat

nestoftreasures said...

I just looked at your shop and my favourite is the diddy bag with fish on it, gorgeous!

The Queen said...

What wouldn't I use it for? Small knitting projects, to be sure, but for snacks when going to the park with my son, for jewelry and accessories when traveling, for carrying a paperback book when going to the coffee shop - it is gorgeous!

Flores Hayes said...

Susan Knight said...

Well dang! I'd use that pretty bag for transporting my knitting projects when I go babysit my grand kids.
very pretty!

TripletMom said...

It would lovingly become my small knitting carry everywhere project bag! Thanks for the contest:)

Debbie said...

I would use the bag for small knitting projects like socks or mitts. In you Etsy shop I love the sock knitting bag with sheep on it. thanks for the contest. Debbie

odd.sox said...

The giveaway bag would definitely be to keep my little Amigurumi HooterNinnies safe and sound before they get rehoused!

And my fave bag from your Etsy shop is the Pirate Monkey one. It'd be great to have a bag for each project and that one would hold all my over-the-knee socks that eventually become sock monkeys.

Lovely stuff!

JD By Laura said...

Hi i really love bags so glad to see a compatition i would use the bag for storing all my jewellery bits and bobs for when i go away and day to day or for putting my makeup in.

teeth and snarlz said...

i would use it to store my ever-growing collection of lip-glosses.

i have all sorts now; ones in the shape of cakes, ones shaped like ice cream tubs, ones made from carrots, some made from honey and even one that gives you energy by putting caffeine through your lips!!!

i have soooo many now and need a super cute place to keep them all and this bag would be perfect!

Twinkly Clare said...

I love it!

Of course max would claim it as his own, probably to put all his treasure in, but I would use it to hang in our camper van for all the odds and sods that don't have a place.

Knitwits said...

gorgeous little bag! personally i'd use it for my knitting but my 2 daughters might have other ideas such as for make up of hair bobbles!
