I think I first fell in love with lace when I was just a kid and my mom told me that lace was tacky. There was something about that forbidden fabric that I couldn't resist. The first lace item I owned was a pink lace baseball cap that I HAD to have when I was four and have never forgotten. Lucky for me, lace is in these days and it's classy. I made a navy blue tote this week with a cream colored lace overlay. Perhaps my favorite part is the lace flower applique. This tote can easily be dressed up for a night out, or paired with jeans for cute casual. It's large enough to hold a school book or two, or a wallet and makeup pouch, or even diapers and on- the- go toys. As much as I love this project, I'm willing to give this versatile bag to you! How? Two ways. The first is to head on over to where The Sassy Pepper (click here to enter) has been gracious enough to host this fabulous giveaway. There, she will explain how you can enter to win this giveaway not once, but two times! While you're there be sure to check out The Sassy Pepper's blog for awesome tutorials and other decorating inspiration. The second way to make this bag yours is to check out my brand spankin' new Etsy shop. The benefit to buying one of these totes is that YOU can pick the color of tote and the color of lace that YOU want. I hope you like it as much as I do!
