{exciting new Gussy products}

This surprise giveaway is now closed!


Warning: lots of Gussy photos...


I wished for a productive weekend and ohhhhhh, boy. It happened! So what if I stayed up until 3 am and then 2 am Friday and Saturday nights?? :) I took your suggestions and made a netbook laptop bag. There's only one available for now, but more are definitely to come. I also made some wider laptop bags.




And, if that's not exciting enough, I have a ton of fabric cut out for even more netbook + wide-screen laptop bags. Check back next weekend for those!

--------------

And... some new product! Checkbook covers. Or pocketbooks for cash, coupons or love notes. How ever you want to use them :)

I loooove how these turned out. Since these don't require special fabric {unlike my laptop bags -- they are all made from heavy weight fabrics}, I was able to use some GREAT prints I already had stocked. I made the ruffle really wide. Do you love it? That's probably my favorite part of the design.










SURPRISE GIVEAWAY!

Leave a comment sharing your favorite color ruffle
{any ole color will do!}

to enter to win a checkbook cover of your choice.



--------------

My mom is "da bomb.com" {Mom, that means your cool} when it comes to knitting baby blankets. Look what she's made, and they're all available in the shop:







How was your weekend? Were you as productive {or lazy} as you wanted to be? :)

xo!

SO cute! I really like the yellow with the black and white, but for me, as long as it's a ruffle, I'll take it! ;)

My weekend was supposed to be filled with cleaning/organizing...but intead I took my little sister out. We went to JoAnn's for some fabric, had lunch at Panera's...and then together we sewed a hanging laundry bag that turned out cute! So it was good, even though I didn't clean. :)
