******* The give away is now over. Congrats to Courtenay! Enjoy your bag!*********
My dear friends. It is time for my very very first blog giveaway!! What you see before you now is something I labored over all weekend long and now I bring to you the first zaza bag that I’ve made!!
It’s actually the first thing I’ve ever sewn (other than shorts when I was 7) but it passed all of the top notch standards of the Zaza Bag Queen Bee….My sister Jennie. Who’s so anal that my hands are sore from rolling the fabric so I could get the perfect press on each seam.
The Hounds of Baskerville is composed mainly of herringbone tweed (saved from a high school sewing project). It is rich in texture and class. This delicious number was inspired by thinking of a Grandpa sitting on the couch. It is artfully constructed and tastefully designed. A treat for the senses, to say the least. It has two pockets on the backside and two pockets on the inside. It also has a delicious cell phone pocket on the side. All of this bag is made from recycled fabrics and left over odds and ends. There’s even a bit of upholstery fabric samples in here. We do not purchase anything for these bags as we are working on keeping our planet green and we want to be able to donate 100% of profits to Zaza’s adoption fund.

So here’s how it works. You need to leave a comment on this post to be entered in the draw. If you write a little bit about this giveaway and Bags For Zaza on your blog and include the links you can have an extra entry. Just leave another comment on my blog with the link to your post (if a pingback didn’t appear). If you don’t have a blog you can get an extra entry by emailing at least 3 friends about this giveaway and Bags for Zaza and email it to me along with your friends (firstname.lastname@example.org). Don’t forget to add the links.
If you don’t like this bag (ya right) you can check out Bags For Zaza and there is a bunch more up this week. Since loads of people ask for the same bag we are putting the bags up for auction. All of the bags will be auctioned at the same time. Auction closes at the end of the week so be sure to bid on the one you love the most. All of the proceeds go to Linda’s adoption fund. She’s adopting a darling little girl from Colombia. A cause I fully believe in. We’ve named her Zaza for the time being because we don’t know who she is.
So please enter the draw. Be sure to fill out your email address in the comment form. This is open to anyone. Land shipping will be free anywhere in Canada and the US. Other countries will have to pay the difference in the extra costs. Contest closes on Friday June 27th at 10:00 am Pacific.
PS I totally loved sewing this bag. I can’t wait to sew my next one. Who knew I could sew!??
