Drawstrings {giveaway!}

Today’s giveaway is from Wanda, the seamstress behind Drawstrings! You may also know Wanda from her blog, Re-inventing Mother. She’s a regular on the Yarn Along as well! She creates the most beautiful drawstring bags, and I have been lucky enough to receive a couple of them. They make perfect knitting project bags, and mine can often be seen peeking out of my Yarn Along photos each week. While I love using mine to hold knitting projects, Drawstrings come in many sizes and have many different uses. Wanda first introduced herself and shared the story of how Drawstrings was born last year.  Her business was originally inspired by my friend Elizabeth Dehority, who recently passed away.  I’m sure that Wanda agrees that sewing these bags is a wonderful way to keep Elizabeth’s memory alive.


It’s been over a year since Drawstrings was born! I have been gifted with incredible people who have made this dream come true. Those people are you. Sales from Drawstrings have been awesome and I continue to marvel at the reviews.


My oldest daughter, Elizabeth, continues to be part of Drawstrings, making this a team effort.  Elizabeth has a degree in Landscape Architecture from Texas Tech University and is also a certified Texas teacher.  She teaches Art to first through sixth graders.  Best of all, she is the mother of three of my grandchildren; Lilah, Evelyn, and Luke.   Her gift of color and design ( she has new ideas already!!) is another gift to the shop.  I’m grateful for her help as I am busy helping to plan the wedding of my youngest daughter!


Together, our goal is to provide a custom bag that can be used in many ways. Many of you use them for your knitting and projects, but with all the varied sizes, the uses are infinite. From jewelry, rosaries, shoes, books,backpacks, dance, laundry, and gift bags, we provide a quality product that is custom to you. Our bags are not mass produced unless you order them. Your purchase is one of a kind! Quality fabrics are used in each bag and I am constantly searching for unique fabrics.


For today’s giveaway, Drawstrings is offering one winner the small bag pictured above. In addition, they are offering a 15% discount on all purchases through April 30. Use the code Drawstrings at checkout to receive the discount. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and one of Wanda’s bags would make the perfect gift!

For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post.  Comments are closed and the winner is Betsie who commented, “I love them! Please?”

Thanks, Wanda and Drawstrings!
