Giveaway | Zippered Pouch

by Katie on January 30, 2011

Hurray! My first giveaway! Remember those pouches from yesterday? Well here they are, ready to go to new homes. In two weeks, I’ll randomly pick three winners. And, since I have about three readers, each one of you will probably get one. πŸ˜›

Want one? Here’s how you can enter:
1. Leave a comment below, sharing what you’d use a pouch for.
2. Follow @LiveOriginally on Twitter.
3. Tweet or blog about this giveaway!
Note: Do all three for three entries.

The giveaway shall end on February 12th at the end of the day! Yee-haw!


We have some winners! Yeaahh! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone that entered!! You made me feel very special. ^_^

To pick the winners, I wrote everyone’s name down, multiple times if you entered more than once. I folded them and put them in the lovely serving bowl that my marvelous MIL got us for Christmas (the inside of which you can see above), and had Brandon pick three out and place them in order onto the pouches. The results are:

I will be emailing each of you to get your mailing addresses! Thanks so much ladies!

Oooh so cute! I would use #1 to carry money/ID/chapstick in when I need to run to the corner store real quick and don’t want to lug my purse.

Those are so cute. I wish I had sewing skills, but baking seems to be my only creative calling. I’d use a pouch to hold my business cards because I’m always losing them at the bottom of my purse.


Shae January 30, 2011 at 11:22 am

Cute! I’d use the pouch as a jewelry bag for when I travel.


Dana January 31, 2011 at 11:06 am

Love these! I would throw into my purse as a catch all. Probably to bring my make-up along with.


Heather Lynne February 4, 2011 at 9:04 am

Those pouches are adorable!!!
I can think of a million things I could use one for- to keep small things together and even be able to move them from purse to diaper bag when needed- love them! And I love the fabric!


Heather Lynne February 4, 2011 at 9:04 am

I follow you on Twitter :)


Cindy February 8, 2011 at 7:15 am

I would love an adorable pouch. I would keep my eyebrow pencil and lipstick in it and it would remind me of you. My adorable granddaugher!

Katie, those are so cute – I just bought a zippered pouch/passport cover/business card holder on etsy all in matching fabric, but I wish I would have seen your tutorial first so I could have saved $10! Regardless, I’d love to win a piece of your handiwork!

Too sweet Katie! Hmmm, possibilities are unlimited, make-up, receipts/coupons, sewing kit….dang I don’t sew… I know – beads…..


liz February 12, 2011 at 7:25 am

I would use it for coupons and other “paper items” that make it into the diaper bag. That kind of stuff always seems to get lost. :)

Katie- Just had to look at this site- so cute- you know I have no idea what it means when it says website, twitter etc.. just loved looking at your site:)


Nicole Huddleston February 12, 2011 at 9:21 am

I blogged about your giveaway today! Hopefully some of my readers to click over here to see your fun, new site! I hope CA is treating you well. LIOB!


Cassie O'Brien February 12, 2011 at 10:01 am

Adorable! I want one!!!


Mom February 12, 2011 at 10:23 am

I would use it to carry photos of my daughter’s wedding! :-)


Janice Pena February 12, 2011 at 11:52 am

Hmm-these are so cute! I would probably use it for make up or jewelry when traveling-too small to take a cat in I think.


Brittany February 12, 2011 at 12:05 pm

I LOVE THESE! There are so many uses…I’m going to imagine winning all three even though that’s not a possibility.
1. I’d put in hand creme, chapstick, and my little nail file & clippers to stow beauty stuff on the go.
2. I’d put my spare change in one because it’s always rattling around loose in my bag.
3. I’d use one as a cell phone case. My case now is impossible to pry off my phone (unless I drop it and it pops off…not a good case) and I have a doc thing now, so I need a cute soft case that’s easy to remove.

I blogged about this too: Haha so maybe one of my few followers will head over here.

Would tweet but I haven’t gotten one of those yet :)


Nancy Maas February 12, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Great idea! I’d use it to carry those “little things” that always get lost in my purse. Hope I win! :-)


Diane February 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I’d use it to keep coupons and gift cards for my favorite stores handy……JoAnns, Stein Mart, Coldwater Creek, Michaels, Hy-Vee (because a girl has to eat once in a while!),,
IKEA (just dreaming ’cause there isn’t one close!) etc. etc.


Stephanie February 12, 2011 at 3:04 pm

I’m with Diane!! I would use it to carry my coupons! Cute website, friend!


Paula Meier February 12, 2011 at 6:42 pm

These bags are adorable, Katie! Love the website, as well! Blessings!


Kristy February 12, 2011 at 8:17 pm

If I don’t win a zippered pouch, I’m going to use your tutorial to make my own! Actually, I was just talking to my mom about making a pouch to coordinate with my homemade diaper bag. I want one smaller one… for credit cards, chapstick, etc. Also a big one for diapers and wipes. Thanks for the detailed tutorial!


Jami February 13, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Hi Katie! Your mom sent me a link. I knew you were a crafter, but these sewn pouches are darling. I make various purses and bags too, can’t wait to coordinate pouches with them. Thanks for the cute idea. I need to send you a link to some patterns I found free on the internet from a friend that are cute and trendy. Pretty sure I’d use my pouch for the “hush-child” lollipops I keep in my purse :) Nothing keeps a kiddo happy in line at the grocery store like a sweet. Ciao!


Ann February 13, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Katie, How cute! I would have entered but we were out of town! Boo hoo! I will keep checking your blog.


Sandy Carlson February 13, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Katie, these are adorable!! So fun to see : ) Hope all is awesome in CA! Love ya


Aunt Romayne February 14, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Dear Katie,

What beautiful pouches!! I’m just sorry I didn’t get to your site in time to put my name in the drawing. We are on vacation – in sunny Arizona and I didn’t get to your site until now. We are
enjoying some warm and sunny weather – it’s wonderful – seeing lots of friends. Hope all is
going well for you and Brandon. Love, Romayne
