New purse...and a giveaway!!

So... as you read this I should be off for a weekend of shopping, fun, laughter, and craziness.  We are going on a weekend shopping trip with a group of our friends.  I'm so excited!  As I type this I'm thinking about packing, getting the girls ready to go to Grandma's, and, oh yes, getting SCHOOL done when the girls get up:)
I got the sewing I had planned for this week finished early yesterday and decided to do something fun.  Every girl needs a new purse now and then and what could be more fun than a new one to take shopping??  So I made this one.  I bought these handles at Sew to Speak when Travis took me there in September.  So I decided to use them.  I used an Amy Butler pattern and put my own twist to it.  I used these handles instead of making the handle the pattern said to make.  I really like the way it turned out.  I love it when I can take a pattern, use my own idea to make it uniquely mine, AND it turns out and I actually like the result:)  And this fabric?  I got it at Sew to Speak too!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  I mean, what seamstress wouldn't???  I also have a huge shoulder bag I made out of the comic strip fabric but I decided it might be a bit obnoxious to take shopping:)  But perhaps it will be my overnight bag...

So.... yesterday's post marked 300 posts.  WoW!  Can't believe it.
To celebrate would any of you like a new purse?  A new skirt?  A purse or skirt for your daughter?  Leave me a comment, any comment, and when I return from shopping I'll draw a name and the winner can tell me how she wants her skirt or purse made.  That's right!  You choose: a skirt or a purse
For you, your daughter, your friend, your Mom, whoever you wish.  And you can tell me how you want it or you can be surprised:) 
Have a wonderful weekend, I can't wait to see who all jumps on board for this one!
