Summer is in full swing! The dance clubs and amusement parks are jamming with people. No lady wants to lug around a full size purse to such bustling places, so Citlalli of Sew Beastly has designed an Itsy Bitsy Wristlet handbag line. These cute bags are the perfect size to fit the essentials and still strap comfortably around a wrist. Each is adorned with a ruffle and outside pocket that closes with a metal snap. Inside has two small open pockets, great for separating cosmetics from cash and phone. The winner of this handmade giveaway gets to choose one Itsy Bitsy Wristlet, priced at $21, from her new Etsy shop.
Citlalli offers a variety of purses, wristlets and pouches. Most of her products are limited editions, made with repurposed fabrics she's saved from being toted away to landfills. She adores working with ruffles, because they bring such life to fabric. She also digs jazzing up designs with gargantuan handsewn flowers. Any of her items can be purchased for 10% off using Etsy coupon code AQUARIANN10 during checkout before August 15, 2011.
