Bag Giveaway


I've spent a good amount of time with the Green Bag Lady bag that I was gifted. Here is my Green Bag Lady bag to giveaway. I've signed this one, just like the Green Bag Lady does. Read on if you'd like me to give this bag to you.

The bag is light blue with blue floral handles. Fabric by Harmony Art (organic design). It is roughly 18 x 18 x 3 inches plus handles.

I will give this bag away by choosing a random comment. The writer of the comment wins. Easy!

For a chance at this bag, you will leave a comment here. You must include your email address or have a blogger account so I can tell you that you are a winner.


You can leave up to four comments -- which increases your chance of winning the bag. Comments will close on Jan. 16; I'll choose a winner by random on Jan. 17, 2010.

1. Read my article on reusable cloth bags. [Leave a comment at the examiner.com article site if there are other stores that offer monetary credit for bringing your own bags.] Leave a comment here telling me if you use cloth bags.

2. Subscribe to my Examiner column or follow this blog -- your choice -- for a second chance. If you currently or newly subscribe or follow, tell me in a comment here.

3. If you are willing to pay it forward, leave another comment. If you win, I will supply you with pre-cut fabric to make and then give away _another_ bag . It is truly the easiest bag I've made. [I'll post instructions soon for anyone who cannot wait to make their own. It takes very little fabric.]

4. Tweet about this giveaway for another chance, then comment here about it: RT @threesisjulia Win a handmade shopping bag! visit http://wanderingknits.blogspot.com/2010/01/bag-giveaway.html

I've been using cloth bags for nearly two years now. It's amazing how easy it is once you get in the habit of carrying them with you! The one problem I do find is having *enough* bags for those really big shopping trips. That's why I would love to win this one! :)
Thanks!

Oh, I always use cloth bags! I even have little mesh baggies for produce-- the plastic ones just ruin it! We actually have a big bag pool that rotates around the vehicle, the house, and any friends who need to take away homemade goodies. Cloth Bags-- a Good Idea, not just good for the planet!
