Win a Stash shopping tote | How About Orange

June 29, 2009

Win a Stash shopping tote

While browsing on Etsy, I came across Mari Forssell's shop full of simple, modern bags in delicious fabrics. Mari is originally from Finland, now living in Nebraska. She's been sewing since she was a tiny girl and adores Marimekko fabrics. (Me too!)

We've arranged a little giveaway: leave a comment on this post before midnight CDT on Thursday (7/2/09), and a random winner will receive this hip red-orange shopping tote. Include a link or way of contacting you. The winner will be announced on Friday in this post.

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. The lucky winner was comment number 269, Elizabeth K. Congrats!
