Travel Purse Giveaway

Thank you for visiting. It’s 11 p.m. Comments are now CLOSED.
I’ll pick and notify the winner on Sunday.

I’m having a GIVEAWAY!!! I’ve always wanted to say that. 🙂

After you are finished reading here, feel free to check out my other blog posts.

Sew, Mama, Sew visitors, welcome to my crafty place! I’m a stay at home mom to my four kids and I’ve been married to Mr. TellBlast for sixteen years. I homeschool three of my four kids. After eight years at home, my oldest is currently enrolled full time in high school. I craft in my spare time.

I am giving away a Travel Purse a la Michelle at the vintage sheet, which I was made aware of through daily visits to the Sew, Mama, Sew blog.

My travel purse is 5 7/16″ high and 4 1/2″ wide. The handle is 23 1/2″ long. Worn across the body or over the shoulder on one side puts the purse right at my hip. It is made of quilting cotton. Brand new, never used!

I swayed a little from the tutorial while making the pocket. I turned the edges under and used a straight stitch to create a cleaner look than a zigzag. The pocket is perfectly handy for a credit card. If your card is always lost and you take forever to fish it out, this pocket will be great for you.

The lining fabric was taken from my 9yo daughter. She thought she’d like to handsew a 9-patch quilt around April, but she just isn’t ready for the amount of precision needed to make a good-looking block. And then she was given a brand new sewing machine in September. So hand stitching a quilt isn’t her cup of tea any more. (But she does like red hibiscus flower tea thanks to Ms. Kristie.) The button is vintage from my slowly shrinking collection. The outside fabric was bought special, just for this purse. Aw, how nice.

To be awarded with this travel purse, you need to comment here no later than 11 p.m. CST on Dec. 5. The gift will be awarded  on Dec. 6 to the person who answers this question best: Where will you take your travel purse? Please leave your email address if you are not a blogspot blogger so I can let you know if you are the winner.

I will ship within the continental U.S. by Dec. 12 Sorry, international readers 🙁 After I won something that required international postage, I felt pretty bad about claiming my prize. I LOVE the charms I got, but don’t feel good about the monetary and non-monetary costs associated. Thanks for understanding

  2. My mom has pulmonary hypertension–that would be a perfect purse for her to keep her pump in! Merry Christmas!

  3. I will take my travel purse to mom's night out and to park play dates where the car is close and diapers can stay in the car but cards need to stay with me. It will be great since it will leave my arms free to play with my kids!

  9. Disneyland! Well, I wish. Maybe I'll have my niece in California take it to Disneyland for me?

    Cute little bag.

  10. I corodinate a lot of our homeschool field trips. This would be perfect to keep all of the information I need on those trips close. With soon to be 4 kids of my own, it helps to be organized.

  11. I love the size of that little travel bag. On any given day, it would probably accompany me to my kiddos' school, the fabric store, dance lessons, piano lessons, gymnastics, choir practice, and maybe… just maybe, mind you… out on the town for a date night with my husband!



  12. i will take it to my niece because she keeps pestering me about making her something like that but i haven't had the time. you would soooo save me.

    I could take it on a train.
    I could take it on a plane.
    I would take it in my car.
    I would take it very far.
    I might take it on a boat.
    But I would not lend it to a goat.

    If I win it you will see.

    I would take it anywhere!

    What a handy purse. I would take it with me to Disneyland later in the month, where I will be with my husband and two young daughters. Hands free accessories are a must!

  18. This would be perfect to take with me instead of toting around a purse and a diaper bag. Sadly with three kids, I don't get to really travel much, so it would just go with me on errands to the store and the store and the store! =)

  19. i'm planning a trip to paducah ky this spring – i will take it with me to the quilt show, and then hopefully on to germany for 3 or 4 weeks in august – hoping to spend time with the family there.

    cute purse.

  20. Hi, I would take the travel purse on my trip to England that I'm planning right now. We are visiting my stepdaughter and her family (her husband is in the airforce and stationed in England for the next 3 years). Thanks for participating in the giveaway.

  21. Well I never go anywhere, but I'm trying to get my husband to go on a cruise for the honeymoon we never took when our ten year anniversary rolls around so I'd take it along for that.

  22. We are taking a family trip to Canada this summer. I would so love to take your pretty travel with me. Thanks for the chance.

  23. Annie Get Your Glue Gun!

    Oh so cute! And useful!

    I would take the travel purse with me when I travel back to the midwest to visit my family. I recently moved all the way out to Oregon, and while I love it out here, it is hard to live so far from my and my husband's families. So whenever I would have to suffer through airports during holiday seasons, I could have this cute little purse to keep me organized and sane. 🙂 [email protected]

  24. The Mangerchine's

    I would use it to hold my passport on a mission trip to India in April.


  25. Cute purse, my daughter would fight me for it. I would take it on my girls weekend to Colorado, my daughter would take it to hers to Hawaii.

  26. Oh, that's so cute! Anything small automatically translates to cute, I don't know why. Thanks for playing along.

  27. I would take it everywhere.

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    I am a homeschooling mom of 16 years. I have five children from ages 21 months to 21 years.

    I am also having a giveaway; so be sure and stop by my blogs. I have two, one for sewing and one for art. and

    My 9 year old daughter is also having a giveaway on her sewing blog. Hers is

  28. Oh my gosh, I really need this bad! I actually wouldn't use it right now for traveling (I wish), but for working. I work for a non-profit that helps children in our area. We work at all the sporting events, concerts, etc. The venues have super strict rules on what we are allowed in, we are usually searched, etc. We are usually allowed a small fanny pack which I don't own or something similar. Your travel purse looks perfect & it is trendy as well. Perfect!

  29. I will take my travel purse on adventures of all kinds! Perhaps a walk through the woods where it can hold tiny natural treasures? Or maybe we can travel to the sea and collect seashells together…and then we can go to the fair and save those fabulous ticket stubs….adventures of all sorts we shall take together…me and this wonderful little travel purse. We will have stories to tell!

    (forgot to say, i'd take the purse with me daily, but esp to my upcoming trip to arizona and mexico!)

  31. Wonderful Giveaway. Thanks. I would love to have something smaller than my current purse/diaper bag.

  32. I'd take this travel purse wherever I travel! Some of my common destinations: Illinois (my home state), Connecticut (my husband's home state), and various places in Indiana (our current home).

  33. What a cute giveaway! I would take my travel purse to the grocery store late at night – AFTER the kids go to bed! I have 3 little ones 5 and under (homeschooled also) and while I love them dearly, sometimes it is just easier to do my grocery shopping alone!

  34. Hooray for homeschooling. Is it fun? I am sure it is work, but it seems very appealing to me.

    Anyway, I would take my travel purse on the many walks I take with my babe, and Italy or Hawaii, should I ever visit those glorious foreign spots where I have connections (yes, I know Hawaii isn't truly foreign).
