Giveaway Week Day 5: aPearantly Sew

How’s that for perhaps the cutest shop name and logo ever in the history of handmade shops? Alison makes adorable wristlets, bags, hair pins and more out of bright interesting fabrics and sells them in her online shop, aPearantly Sew.

Alison found me via Twitter (which is another reason everyone should tweet – awesome people like Alison!) and offered to participate in my giveaway week. After exchanging a dozen or more emails, I can assure you she is just as cute as her product – and clearly very talented, to find time to make stuff with TWO boys only 18 months (to the day!) apart. She is also happy to answer frantic questions about double strollers from those of us who are obsessed with such things. So I like her.

I liked her even more after she sent me this:

Do those colors look familiar? That's because they're ALL AROUND YOU. Alison says it wasn't intentional but she totally made this wrislet with my blog colors!

The attention to detail is fantastic - don't you love the matching lining?

And although it’s a great little bag for coupons or make-up or a pencil case, I prefer to use it when I’m pretending I DON’T regularly carry poop-filled diapers around with me for several hours.

iPhone, keys, driver's license and credit cards - everything I need for a babyfree shopping trip!

That's with all the stuff in it, including my giant keys! It even has a handy wrist strap for carrying, which makes me feel classy.

And to help you feel just as classy, Alison is offering one of my readers a $20 shop credit! (For the record, that will totally get you one of these wristlets.)

All you have to do to enter is visit aPearantly Sew and leave a comment on this post telling me which item is your favorite! And yes, you can totally say “all of them”, because that would be my answer.

Alison is also rather new to the blogging world, so I know she would love if you checked out her blog or followed her on Twitter too. Although all her blog does is make me jealous I can’t sew worth crap.

Giveaway will be open until November 5th, winner will be chosen using and notified via email, so make sure you use a real email address when you comment.

Disclaimer bit: Alison sent me my wristlet for free so I could review it honestly and take pictures. No other compensation was received and her gift did not influence my opinions in any way. Neither did her patience in talking to me about double strollers.

Day 1 is open until November 1st! Allora Handmade
Day 2 is open until November 2nd! Uff Da Designs
Day 3 is open until November 3rd! Taradara
Day 4 is open until November 4th! Peggy Ann Design
