July's Tote Give-Away!

We're coming up on the 1st of July and you know what that means! It's time for another Tote Give-Away! Last month I promised a patriotic themed tote for this month's give- away. I scoured the nation (went down to my local fabric shop) for fabric that would do our country proud and came up with this combination. It's not exactly a "snap-to-attention and salute" blend of fabrics, but technically it is red, white, and blue -- ish. I've given 'er the name of -- "Subtly Patriotic."

The contest will run through midnight on Sunday, July 6th. Monday morning, July 7th, the winner of the contest will be announced. This contest will run a little differently than my contests in the past. Instead of choosing a number, I will put all the names in a basket and randomly choose someone's name. The contest is open to all blogging buddies, relatives, and friends.

Here are the rules of the contest:
1) The participants must live in the continental U.S. or Canada. (I will provide the postage.)
2.) Each person that makes a comment below will have her name entered in the contest. If you put a "heads up" on your blog about the contest, and come back and let me know through another comment, your name will be entered again.
3.) No anonymous comments PLEASE! If you are not a friend or relative that I already know and love, please leave your name and a way for me to contact you (either an email address or the address of your blog). If I don't have any way to contact you, your name will not be eligible.
6.) This tote is not meant for resale. Only those intending to use the tote for their personal use may sign up for this contest. Thank you!

"Subtly Patriotic" measures 14.5" by 12". It is fully lined, has double interfacing, and has a reinforced fabric covered base for extra support. It comes with two inside pockets and canvas straps.
Also, "Suzanne's Hang Ups" are now for sale. Scroll down to see those that are available and to take note of a new product that I'm making -- the "Dwipe!"

Oh boy, I am the first to comment! :) Also, you should know that the 4th of July is my FAVORITE holiday (ask Shannon for confirmation). I know that doesn't help my chances, but thought I'd add it anyways. Thanks for making such great totes every month, you're great!

Hi Suzanne,

My name is Jenny Olson, and I am the best friend of Kisa Caldwell--your soon-to-be daughter-in-law. I went to Washington, DC last month and had the pleasure of spending a lot of quality time with her and Cameron--I am so happy for them! One of the highlights of the trip was seeing the adorable tote you made for Kisa. Your totes are beautiful and they each have a great personality. Please count me in for the July drawing! Thank you.

Today is my birthday so it only seems right that the birthday faeries allow you to pick me.

Jeanette said...

I love tote bags and this one is really neat. I agree with Amy, a girl can never have too many bags, shoes, or watches as far as I'm concerned.
