yes, they were band geeks.
These are my favorite pics from middle school band...*sigh**...I miss those band days!
So, when my sister asked me to make something for her two boys' high school band fundraiser to auction off for much needed funds (a band program always needs money...lots of money)......
Of course, I said I would.
What are Aunties for anyway?
As you know, I have been digging my way out of my procrastination piles and this request was one of them.
I decided I would make two of my favorite totes for their great cause....and wait....in all my infinite wisdom, I figured since I'm already making two...might as well make three...I can put one in my Etsy Shop...hooray for infinite wisdom!
I do love making these totes, they are always so darn cute when they get finished. I gathered some of my fabric stash and wiled away a stormy Saturday completing yet another procrastination project.
Question is...I wondered...which one do I put in my shop? Which two do I give to the fundraiser.
Well, wouldn't you know, my infinite wisdom struck again! I COULD do my very first GIVEAWAY with one of these darn cute totes!!
Question is...which one?
I could not decide...just couldn't...they are all three so very cute and SOOOO....
I'm going to let the winner of the giveaway decide. Yep, the winner gets to pick the one they want and then I will give the other two to the Helix Charter High School band program for auctioning off at their fundraiser April 28th, 2012.
Here they are....cute as can be and functional too!
Each tote is made from strong vinyl coated screen. They have six pockets on the exterior, strong nylon handles that go all the way around the bag for extra sturdiness. They sport a custom trim and coordinating piping or rickrack. They are a super book bag, beach bag, diaper bag....just about anything bag!
SO....which one would you pick?
Here's how to enter my very first giveaway:
