That's why I was thrilled when she agreed to do a giveaway with me! From moment one Lesley was the pinnacle of patience and professionalism. She happily answered all of my questions and let me choose my own theme/fabric to make sure that my tote was customized exactly the way I wanted it.
The turn around time was fantastic-I placed my order on Thursday and she mailed it out on Friday! I anxiously awaited it's arrival, and despite my mail carrier's tendency to deliver everything as late as humanly possible, it arrived very promptly on Monday morning. When I opened up the package I was immediate thrilled with the packaging-it came wrapped in tissue paper, with her adorable little bird logo holding it together-when I took it out of the tissue paper I was just as excited (you know how I love pretty things!). Seriously-how adorable is this?!
If this were a gift, I could have put it in a gift box exactly as it had arrived! Still, the packaging is not the best part. Once I finished unwrapping the tote, I was just in love with it. It is so crafty-cute! Monkey was with me when I unwrapped it, and he too was totally taken with it. That's part of the reason why my pictures are not so fabulous-he couldn't let me just take a picture. He immediately wanted to take his bag and "fill it with his special treasures".
I did however manage to get an up close shot of the letters. The little zig-zag stitching is such a nice touch, don't you think? The fabric is bright and stands out, but it is well coordinated-everything is pulled together to make the tote a fabulous piece of craft work.
The design isn't the only fabulous part-this tote bag is very durable and highly functional as well. It can withstand Monkey-that alone is a great sign. This tote bag is big enough and sturdy enough to carry a ton of books without being uncomfortable. It easily swings over my shoulder as comfortably as a purse, and fits underneath the stroller for walks to the library. As a homeschooler I can tell you-this tote is going to prove invaluable!
Lesley's tote bag is kid friendly in structure and design-and we at the house of M love it love it love it.
That's why I'm so glad that Lesley and I can give one away! You can win a fabulous kid friendly, crafty cute, ultra durable tote bag customized just for you-put your kid's name on it, your family name on it, whatever is special to you, and pick from Lesley's fabulous fabric selection-really make it your own!
