Bloggy Giveaway: Official Lit and Laundry Tote Bags

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button




Celebrate your love for craziness and vintage toys with a pair of these handmade Troll totebags. I will be giving away a pair of these beauties on Friday, August 1. To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post by Midnight Thursday. I'll draw the winner Friday morning and mail them off. If you do not have a blog, please give me an email to reach you.

Think of all the fabulous uses for these tote bags!
  • Use them instead of plastic grocery bags. They're more sanitary than store-issue "green" bags because you can toss them in the wash. They're also stronger -- wont rip no matter how big a bag of kitty litter you need.
  • Use them to pick up toys around the house to put in "clutter jail!"
  • Take them to the pool or the beach
  • Give them to your kids
  • Stash your knitting
  • Use one for lit and (wait for it). . .one for laundry!
These handy totes fold into themselves so you can tuck them in your purse and use one anytime. I used a Target bag as a pattern, so they're a great roomy size.


Just leave a comment on this post. You may enter once per day through Thursday at midnight Pacific time. I'll announce the winner Friday August 1.
