We loved putting Gifts for Guys together, y’all! For Christmas, our guys will be receiving Gift for Guys bundles, essentially. Hahaha! A quick review of the tutorials all in one place:

No sew bow tie by Olivia Renn

Boxy dopp kit by The Cottage Home

Hanging tent by kojodesigns

While we spend our day counting and pairing Gifts for Guys winners with prizes (we’ll announce those asap), we thought we’d remedy the drought of girly goodness with a giveaway of loveliness! Emily from The Boy Trifecta put together this darling purse for Crafting with the Stars. And she’s offered to make one of these beauties as a giveaway for one of our readers. Even better- you get to pick your color- brown OR black tweed. I can’t tell you how much I love this bag… I think I could pretty much give it to any girl on my list.

  4. oh and I am a follower! At least I am pretty sure I am since you're in my google reader. Sometimes I subscribe and I follow separately somehow and I wind up getting the blog in the feeder twice in a row and I'm too scared of losing the blog to try remedy the situation.
    Technology and baby brain don't go well together.

  5. Of course, I'd love this! I think the black one is the one I really, really need. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Totally new to the Kojodesigns and The Boy Trifecta blogs. I just found both today. I love the bag and really like the cubicle treats. They would so go over well in this cubicle infested world I work in. I'll be back for more definitely.

  21. Love the bag. I'm new to both blogs just stumbled upon them this afternoon while I tried to look busy at work. I'll be back for more though.

  22. This is the first blog I've bothered to figure out how to "FOLLOW!" I've been reading regularly for some time and enjoy the ideas, but oh, that bag! It's enough to make me do all sorts of crazy things. Without exaggerating, I've been scheming about how to recreate it since I first saw it on CWTS, and my final conclusion has inevitably been that my bag-sewing skills aren't up to par. Sometimes the original is just too good to recreate! I would be just ecstatic if I won this, and I'd love it forever and ever and ever amen! Thanks!

  23. Wowza, am I the first to comment?? Crazy! I love love all of your ideas for Gifts for Guys! I have three kiddos…two girls (5 and 2) and my one little guy (1). I've been having a time trying to figure out what to do for him for Christmas…but not anymore!!:) Thanks a bunch! And thanks for the giveaway!!!


  24. oh, I just noticed, I'm probably not the first commenter since there are probably a gazillion in your 'approval box" ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I'm a follower of you also!!!

  25. oh . my. word. i love love love love love this bag, from the min a set eyes on it on crafting with stars! soooo cute! amazing job!!
