Love the wonderland purse! I could use a new one as the current one is falling apart from carrying "everything but the kitchen sink" ! Thanks and I always enjoy your blog.

Barbara Myltschenko said...

Amy you're crazy! I love that bag! The grossest thing found in my purse? Last week I found a diaper that I had taken off my son 3 days before! (Yes the purse is deep, things get lost in there!)

Priscilla said...

I would love to win this bag, it is lovely. I have almost anything in my bag, the most useful is the wet wipes package, the funniest are the things my 4-year-old hides in it, and the grossest item was the melted coffee sweet I keep it there for those loooong parent-teacher meetings to survive :-)
But I would take good care of this beautiful bag and would never put anything so dangerous in it! :-)

I love this bag and thanks again for hosting the Quilt Festival! That was fabulous!

Fulvia Luciano, artist said...

I would love to win this bag and I will confess to having nothing ... ever gross in my own bag! ... lol

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, pretty, pretty! What a fun idea -- you're going to get some great comments. I love all the pockets in your purse. I currently have two individual cupcake carriers in my purse -- and they're empty! ;-)

Stephanie said...

LOVE Wonderland. Great bag. Random thing found and also icky...you know those hose type cut off things you find by the box in shoe stores for trying on shoes...found a pair of those, used, in my bag.

Susan said...

I have receipts that are years old stuffed in pockets from grocery stores to Christmas shopping. Love the Wonderland fabric and purse.
A very nice giveaway; thanks for the chance to win.

Treasuresofjoy said...

I Love the purse and as far as yuk...I have found (unchewed) gum at the bottom of my purse, with fuzz and lint sticking to it. It made it's way out of the wrapper, and made my purse smell yummy.

Goddess in Progress said...

Adorable, count me in!

Well, I have twin toddlers. So my purse generally contains at least one or two diapers (unused, thank you), a baggie of wipes, and most certainly some snack remnants. Half a cereal bar, some crushed pretzels.

I promise I would not similarly abuse this bag! I'd keep it just for roses and perfume. :-)

Becky said...

Sorry about the above delete. I forgot to tell you what is the grossest thing in my purse. Probably a ratty-tatty list about 5 pages long that I have carried for years and years. I keep adding to it but never re-do it. It is a list of books I want to read. That's the best I can do since my kids are all grown and there are not more snotty noses to wipe.

I love that purse. LOVE IT. If I win her, she will not be going anywhere but everywhere I go.

Emma said...

What a gorgeous bag, count me in! I regularly have random items in my handbag, usually small-child related. After all, who doesn't need a (single) spare bootie while at the office? The weirdest handbag item I know of is a relative who carries a mini-welder in her handbag

Debbie said...

I love all the pockets in that bag, Amy. Please count me in. Sorry, the worst thing you'll find in my purse or pockets is a used tissue!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Amy, this is such and awesome Wonderland bag! Generous giveaway!

Wammy said...

What a great Give Away. I don't carry a purse (I caried a diapper bag for the twins as big as China seems like forever and vowed never to carry anything again) But I would definately carry one of these! I once carried and found a Reese's Cup in my back pocket anf forgot it was there. Melted and got everywhere. A first glace it looked like I had had a little bathroom mishap.....

Brooke said...

Great bag! I recently had a tupperware of strawberries explode in my bag. Yeah, I had to throw that one out after continuing to find residual stickiness weeks later and after multiple cleanings. Sigh.

Terriaw said...

Fabulous purse, especially with all those pockets on the inside. I set my purse on the floor at a friend's house and the ants they had unknowingly invading their house liked the smell of jolly ranchers in the bottom of my purse. I was so grossed out, I ended up having to throw my purse away!

Sherry said...

I love bags and this would be a lovely one to use this summer. Great looking bag.

Deana said...

What a generous giveaway! I used to keep my purse on the counter by the garage door which happens to be by the stove. My wonderful husband was baking a ham one day. As he was lifting the ham out of the pan, it slipped off the meat fork and back into the pan. "Ham juice" (orange juice, honey, brown sugar and the drippings from the ham) splashed everywhere. My pursed was covered inside and out. We were amazed at the great coverage! Since parts of it were leather, I was not able to clean it. Since then, I don't keep my purse there and I haven't carried a purse as i haven't found a new one.

Margaret said...

what a wonderful giveaway. Thank you for such generosity. I don't often have gross things in my purse, but today for some reason I have worm medication for horses and dogs. It's that time of year!

Michaela said...

Thanks for the giveaway! It is a beautiful bag! You can almost always find gardening tools in mine - pruners, gloves... I am a landscape designer, that's why.:)

Bethany said...

I love the bag!!! I think the most gross things I have found in my bag are melted hershey kisses. What girl does't like having a bit of chocolate in her purse just in case of a child melt down, or a long line, or traffic, or Monday. Unfortunately, it doesn't work out so well if it meits!

Marg M said...

thankyou for a great give away!

katrina said...

Funny you should mention:

The other day, I went to the movies and got some Junior Mints, which are like little soft chocolate covered peppermint patties. Anyhow, I put the unfinished box into my purse when we left the movie (Saturday night) into my purse, and forgot about it. WELL, when I came to my purse Monday morning, there were (of course) chocolatey gooey mints EVERYWHERE. Cleaned them up, fine...but then Tuesday morning I definitely found one that I had missed squished onto the back of my (leather) agenda with a bill REALLY glued onto the other side of the mint, which for some reason grossed me out to no end, plus I had to try and rescue the leather from the gross tackiness of my candy.

Jean said...

What a pretty bag! I don't know how you can part with it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I am glad I found your blog when you hosted the quilt festival.
quiltinjeanie@yahoo.com

Vivian said...

Love the bag. I could definitely use it. My current one is a bit tattered and filled will useless grocery receipts for food already eaten. That's not really gross -- just useless.

Jackie Russell said...

Cute purse! I love the wonderland fabrics. I'm kind of a neat freak so I don't think I have anything gross in my purse. I did forget about a box of junior mints in my purse on a hot day and they melted all over, that was gross. I promise I will not to put any Junior mints in this purse if I win. : )

Michelle said...

The bag is gorgeous and I love the wonderland fabric. I will have to tell you about a random item in my purse. This just happened 2 days ago. My husband had been looking for his charger for his blackberry for a week and asked me a few times if I had seen it, and I said no. Then 2 days ago, he needed something and I told him I had in my purse. Well, he gets my purse out and inside he finds the charger. I don't know how it got there and I am not sure how I didn't notice. I will have to tell him that it shows that I don't reach in very often for my wallet.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Martina said...

So great this bag. Love it. Thanks for the chance to win.
Love Martina

STEPHANIE. said...

Oh I would absolutely be thrilled if I won this bag!! It is beautiful!...and yes those pockets are great, I am embarassed to say that i may need to use one for all the recipets that I stuff in my purse. :)

rlbates said...

Lovely bag!

Joanna said...

Love the bag!!! Just lovely!

Well the most random thing would be salt - I love me some salt, so I always collect the little salt packets at takeout places. Only problem is somehow they always leak and my purse gets little bits of salt all through it. I should fix that. lol!!

Ali macg said...

what a lovely bag and fantastic fabric. Worst thing found in my bag...a piece of squashed macaroon bar ( a very sweet scottish sweetie) it had obviously been there a while as was covered in fluff!

Stephanie D. said...

Just changed from a winter purse to a summer one, so there isn't really anything exciting or gross in there. Probably the most unusual is a pair of bandage scissors.

the 6 o'clock stitch said...

Oh, what a wonderful bag! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. The grossest thing I've ever found in our diaper bag...definitely the squished disgusting (who knows how old) chicken nugget in a ziploc bag. Smelled awful!

I'm hosting a giveaway this week as well...details at

http://the6oclockstitch.blogspot.com/2009/05/giveaway-from-kit-chase.html

Cheryl said...

I would love to win that bag!

The grossest thing I found in my purse was a jelly packet (you know those little plastic containers they give away at diners when you get breakfast) that had opened in the bottom. Of course, all sorts of hair and lint had stuck to it. Yuck!

Natalie said...

Such a gorgeous bag! I have just recently cleaned my bag so nothing gross in there right now...although, I did have to wash it in the washing machine because some of my gum basically disintegrated on the bottom of my purse...there was sticky goo on everything. I even had to wash off the loose change that was down there! It was gross!

Sara said...

Please enter me in your giveaway. I love your bag.

Kim said...

What a sweet gift. I really love this purse and the fabrics that you chose. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

roseylittlethings said...

Such a great bag! One time I won a contest at a baby shower because I had the most lipsticks in m purse I think I had about 3o, yikes!

Beth said...

What a great bag! I'd love to win. Like others here the grossest thing I've found is an old dirty diaper (going on 4 days). The closest competitor was some 2 week old string cheese. I'm not sure how we miss those things, but motherhood sure has a way of re-arranging priorities. Cleaning out my purses/bags has fallen very low on the list of things "to do" :)

Nichole said...

Love the Wonderland purse! I've been drooling over your Wonderland fabrics here lately. I need to get me some. Grossest thing ever in my purse - a chewed up and spit out fruit snack from my 2 year old son. He didn't like the flavor and unbeknownst to me spit it into my bag. That was a fun treat to find later when I was digging around for something. EWWW! Good thing I could launder that bag. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Meghann said...

What a lovely bag and generous giveaway. I really don't carry much in my purse other then the endless amounts of receipts I tend to keep in there:)

Thanks again for the generous giveaway.

Michele said...

What a great bag. It will be a wonderful prize for some lucky person. Hope it's me!

Artsy Momma said...

The weirdest thing I found in my purse was a dried up old apple slice. Something I am willing to bet got its way into my purse thanks to a little girl who was done with eating her apple and wanted to save it for later!

Barbie said...

Beautiful...I love that Wonderland fabric too. In fact, I just bought a charm pack to make a bag for myself.

The worst thing to find in my purse is a half eaten, unwrapped fruit bar. Man are they sticky...

two hippos said...

The bag looks great. I'm pretty unoriginal (and don't often carry a purse) so I think the grossest thing is chewed gum in a wrapper waiting to be disposed.

Chantie said...

Hi Amy--love your bag! Grossest thing was definitely tissues from son's bloody nose--eeew!

Erin said...

Love that Wonderland! And that purse looks amazing! Weird thing currently in my purse: probably the bottle of yucky orange Glucose test drink I need for my next pre-natal appointment! I better get that in the fridge now that I think of it! :)

Thistle Cove Farm said...

The bag is beautiful and all the pockets make it handy indeed! Worst thing ever found in my purse was a rawhide chew, a gift from one of the dogs -smile-.

Cassie said...

Ok, Amy. I didn't find these items in my purse, but my daughter did when she was about four. Imagine my pink cheeks when I turned around at church to see my daughter standing on the pew directing the worship team with two tampons she found in my purse. We laugh and laugh about this now.

Lovely bag, Amy!

Cassie

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Hi Amy, Love the purse. Please enter me in your giveaway. I do carry a lot of stuff in my purse. It's like my portable filing system :-)

Mushyhed said...

I don't have kids so I would say the most random thing I've found in my bag would be a pacifier. I can only assume my friend's little boy threw it in there.

Zlaty said...

Great purse! Thank you for your generous giveaway!!!
The most gross thing it's maybe a used chewing gum in a wrapper. :)

Happy sewing!

Zlaty

Mimi said...

Oooooooooh, I love your purse...so much that I'd like to make it MY purse!

The yuckiest thing I've carried in my purse is leftover food from a restaurant. You see, our pup goes with us everywhere unless it's too warm for her to stay in the car. I save a bite of my dinner for her...this assures me of getting my seat back when I return to the car, but if it's too warm, I take the food home to her. If I forget to give it to her, it's YUCKY!

Brenis said...

Hi Amy!
What a wonderful bag!! woohoo - please put my name in the hat to win it! I too am giving goodies away all this week :)
Ok.. grossest thing just happened to me this last week. and eeewww!!
Every morning I grab my daily vitamins (that i take at lunch) and shove them in my pocket. Well apparently I MISSED my iron pill -they are little bitty- and then washed my jeans. When I went to put my jeans on the other day... there was this absolutely GROSS brownish yellow gooey stain in the bottom corner of the (front)pocket!!! Took me a few minutes to figure out what in the world it was... and was totally grossed out and confused, until I did!! (yah.. even after i figured it out! lol) Definitely TMI !! But you asked!! LOL
bright blessings! Bren

Little Love Things said...

Awesome giveaway. Love the bag!
Probably the most grossest thing found in my purse was melted gum from the heat that stuck everywhere. It was a mess to clean up.

Great blog! I love your work!

Patricia

Gnomemade said...

Great purse - it's just so adorable. I love the Wonderland fabrics. Strangest thing in my purse - I'm not quite sure, but it seems that everything I ever lose in my house (especially jewelry) always ends up in some random pocket in my bag...how, is still a mystery. Perhaps purse elves who like to collect shiny objects?

Robin said...

I love this bag!!! I usually have loads of little legos in my purse...my youngest makes me things and then hides them in my purse to find later...how sweet, huh? :)

melissa s. said...

i just checked, and i had some snakeskin and a bunch of bird feathers that holden found on a walk the other day (thanks for the reminder to clean out my purse)
LOVE the bag!!

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

How fun is this purse?!?! Love love love it! My purse is always being vacuumed out because I have 2 labs and I think the grossest thing I've found is dog hair!

Pamela said...

What a great bag!!! My mother tells of a time when I was a toddler. She left her purse in a store and had to go retrieve it. They asked her to identify the bag by its contents. The only thing in it was saltine crackers.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

LOVE! An item from my purse is my Aveda Purefume, #9. Purefume is so much nicer than perfume and the #9 smells like a milder version of patchouli, which I love, but dare not wear.

One Little Thread said...

I have so many random things in my handbags/purses that defy logic.

On our recent holiday to the USA, my husband had the wrong drivers licence in his pocket, so the hire car company would not let him drive - I wished that day I did not have mine as I had to drive on the "wrong" side of the road.

My best friend visited me from overseas and boarded the plane home (half way around the world) and discovered my house keys in her purse! Tight security meant she could not get off, nor bring them to me, although they did kindly send a message!

Great bag - I could certainly put it to good use.

Dawn said...

Ok..this just happened Monday!! My daughter went hiking with my husband and she took her backpack. She hasn't used it since last year. She reached in to get the snacks she packed and felt something squishey!! It was an apple from last year!! Ick! Love the bag!!

Shawn said...

I love all kinds of bags! Yours is very cute. The grossest thing I would say is a cough drop covered in lint :b

girlville said...

lovely purse! the most random/yucky thing in my purse is a piece of gum that fell out of the packaging...

April M. said...

The grossest (is that a word) thing I've found in my purse is a half eaten banana. Kids - you've gotta love 'em. :)

ebook3392 said...

Love the bag! Such cute fabric. I don't have anything gross in my bag but I'll tell you the most useful item outside of the wallet - my retractable tape measure. I've gotten lots of weird looks in stores when I pull it out, but it's amazing how many times I've needed it. Added to the camera on my phone, it's wonderful for ideas/inspiration grabbing!

langlangcreations said...

Half a croissant stuck to a diaper... which made me think it was a soiled diaper. :-p I promise I won't let that happen to your gorgeous bag.

mommymae said...

i made a list of my diaper bag contents once...once.

not sure about the grossest thing. probably a wet diaper since i had to throw it away at home instead of at the doctor's office.

Janet said...

I dont have kids, so nothing gross has made its way into my purses...yet! But I am an electronics junky, so i have my blackberry, camera, netbook, and nintendo DS with me all the time!

Anna said...

Love the bag! And.... I actually found a half-chewed children's vitamin in my purse just this morning. YECH.

Paper Couture Blog said...

I ofetn have litte dinosaurs and goldfish crakers in the bottom of my bag.

The Retired Mama said...

The grossest thing I found in my purse was cat pee! I have a boy cat, who has been neutered, but still likes to pee in containers. If I leave a bin uncovered or a drawer open he leaves his mark. I was able to clean out my leather purse, but my suitcase, not so much!

Jennifer said...

Cute bag! I have such a small purse, not much finds it way in there. For a small one it's amazing what fits, though - toys, snacks, and tissue along with the usual wallet and such.

Holly said...

This bag is just lovely! I 'love' finding a half-eaten Gerber Arrowroot cookie at the bottom of my bag, which apparently happens too often! =)

Leanna said...

So, I've been walking around with a spoon in the bottom of my purse for the past week. I have NO idea how it got there or when...interesting. Thanks for the chance!

fay said...

Very cute purse. I can't think of anything that has shown up in my purse that was gross.

AmBurg said...

I carry a diaper bag and am forever finding dirty diapers in little plastic bags in it that we forgot to throw away from Church. It takes up a lot of space and the weight adds up!

Ariel said...

Love this fabric line! Cute way to put it to great use!

sandra said...

Great giveaway! Gorgeous bag!

JULIE ♥ ADORE said...

very very cute

Zarina said...

something in my purse which I really enjoy (privately) is these little toys of my nephew/niece. Once I opened up at the paying counter to find a heap of toy cars which my nephew so conveniently place so he can play when we're out.

Purple Paisley Patch said...

Oh I love this bag, isn't the wonderland fabric just too much! Okay, I'm about to confess, so let me start by saying "Bless me father for I have sinned!". Many years ago, on a planet far, far away, a girlfriend and I went out for a night on the turps (drinking). We drank many, many (way too many) cocktails, including the then popular flaming lamborghinis (aka rocket fuel). We then moved onto our drinks of choice, margheritas for me (still a fave, altho it has been awhile) and cointreau for her. We thought it would be a right lark to souveneir the glasses, naughty girls we were back then, all grown up and responsible now! Anyway, the next morning I discovered two glasses in my bag, but it appears that they may not have been empty at the time we decided to put them there - icky, what a stinky bag I had!!! Thanks for a fab giveaway and a chance to confess! :-)

Loris said...

Cute,cute bag! Grossest thing in my purse? Well, thank you for asking :-) I'd have to say melted chocolate candy on a hot day....poor planning at its best.
Got to tell you again how much I enjoy your playlist..nice music! Thanks for sharing, Loris

Stacey said...

good idea...love the bag btw...i have found a melted gummy bear..horrible.

come check out my bag giveaway too!

Jess said...

I am in love with Wonderland!! And that's Moda's not Michael's in case you had doubt. I just made a skirt for my oldest out of this! The grossest/weirdest things include: mouth guard from hockey season (3 months ago) without case, an empty vanilla extract bottle from the play kitchen, a Little Tykes dad doll, a LPS butterfly, and a small gren glass vase. And all but the first would be thanks to the kiddos, it's amazing what they think belongs in a purse!!

Andria said...

That is a CUTE bag! love it. A few weeks ago in church I was looking for a pen and pulled out a Power Ranger instead.

Perfect Heirlooms said...

One day I cleaned out my purse to find 13, yes 13 different lipsticks! Sad I know!!

donminic22 at hotmail dot com

Camille said...

You know I'm all about the Momo lately! LOVE THIS BAG!! Crossing all my fingers, seriously.

I carry a seam ripper and dental floss in all my purses. I think it is just good sense. :-)

Thanks Amy!

Muddling Through said...

Why, oh why are there so many pretty fabrics out there?? They make me want more and more and more and more.......

rachel griffith said...

oh amy.
me LOVES it!!!

Toni said...

That bag is great! I don't usually carry a real purse anymore since I have an enormous diaper bag to contend with, along with my two little boys, so anything gross generally goes in there. Which, on any given day could be dirty diapers, wet clothes, random chewed up food spit out by a 2 year old, or bugs that the aforementioned toddler wants to take home. I promise no bugs or recycled graham crackers would find their way into this bag. (hopefully...)

Amy said...

I found a melted piece of chocolate stuck to the bottom...and when I was working I found a rotted orange at the bottom of that bag...ewwwwwwww

Leslie said...

Love, love your wonderland purse! So cute! Nothing gross in my purse just lots and lots of little 'notes' to remind myself of to dos! Thanks so much!

Ashley said...

Hi Amy - great bag made with some great fabric! would love to have a new bag for the summer... i try to keep the gross stuff out of my bag, but it's currently filled with little scraps of paper and receipts and gum wrappers, which I still find kind of unpleasant!

Katherine said...

Well, the grossest thing I have come across in my purse is.....a bottle of milk that was sitting in there for, well who the heck knows how ling. It leaked all over the bag and contents. In my defense I switch my bags our a LOT! So that is why I didn't notice sooner :)

Anonymous said...

Love the bag!! Weirdest thing found in my purse...q-tips perhaps? and usually an assortment of chewed bubblegum...gotta love the kids!!! I can be reached by leaving a message on http://AmybugsOriginalStyle.etsy.com

April said...

Love the purse! Hmmm...found just about everything in my purse!

Sunny Tuesday said...

Oh man, have I had something gross in my purse! I won't go into specifics because it's sicknast, but if you want to check it out, here's a link to the story:

http://sunnytuesday.blogspot.com/2009/05/little-something-to-tide-you-over.html

I promise not to let that happen to this bag if I win it! :)

Shannon Hillinger said...

I used to carry salt and pepper packs in a spare change compartment in my wallet. Then the wallet fell apart and I can't find another one with a similar extra pocket, so I'm pepperless.

Sunnymommie said...

gorgeous purse and love colors!

when my daughter was 2 yrs old and she steal candy and put in my purse to hide from me and I m glad i caught her before we leave store! OMG! I have to watch my kids all the time! haha!

Kat said...

What a great bag. Thanks for offering it to us all! The most random item in my purse, a disposable diaper (unused, of course) that's two sizes too small for my daughter. Obviously, I don't go through my gigantic mom-purse very often, if that can get lost in there :) Perhaps it's time I traded up to a more chic less mom=ish purse.

cjh said...

Great bag and great colors. Very cute, and nice quilting. It's very generous of you to give it away! Thanks.

I was reading the comments above and thinking, No one has a measuring tape - in this crowd of sewing people? Then I saw ebook does! That is my random thing, too. My mom used to always carry a little retractible tape measure in her purse or pocket and the habit rubbed off on me. I use it all the time. Forget the nail files, lipsticks, tissues, etc. - just don't forget the measuring tape.

Rita said...

You make the cutest purses! I love this bag with the wonderland fabric which I have yet to get my hands on! Beautifu bag and thank you for the opportunity to win it!

Lynn said...

Hand sanitizer - don't use it much but want it available if needed.

AMANDA said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win this great purse!!!!!
Yehudim@aol.com

Taiya said...

Well, yesterday, I found a rotten banana in my daughter's diaper bag. Squished into one of her clean diapers. (Luckily). Not very awesome!

Grace said...

Love all the pockets. A very very old squashed banana. GROSS.

Stacy said...

The most random thing in my purse is a sheet of quotes I keep in my wallet. They are inspiring little things for me.... Beautiful bag!

Amy said...

I love the bag! I am not sure about the grossest or oddest thing ever found in my purse. With kids, it is often dirty tissues, dirty hand wipes, my daughter's handbows, melted crayons from leaving the purse with non melted crayons in a hot car, stickers from the pediatricians office, etc.

debra lynn said...

Awesome bag! I LOVE the fabrics and the pockets!

Simply Lulu Boutique said...

I would love this bag! The weirdest thing in my purse? A dirty baby spoon. You never know when you will need a spoon! haha

Thanks for sharing!

Jenny said...

Oh I need that Purse!!! Lets see I have a broken leg and when I went to go to the doctor I grabbed my purse and found 1 shoe in there!

The Coxes said...

I LOVE the Wonderland fabric!! I would jump up and down if I won this purse!!

mendi_brown said...

I love this bag, this is one of my fav fabric lines out. I usually have everything from disposable toothbrushes to nail clippers in my purse. But I just found an arrow cut of neon orange paper in there... who knows where that came from.

marie*jolie said...

I love the bag. The strangest thing in my purse at the moment is that I have TWO empty gum packages. No gum. Why are the packages still there? I have no idea. And not just one, but two! :) leafygreenes at gmail dot com

bellsjo said...

This bag is yummy! Thank you for the chance to win it and of course for your lovely bag. The worst thing in my bag ever has to have been the half eaten sandwich that somehow spent a week lurking at the bottom (luckily it was wrapped up) - it was green and hairy by the time I found it!

Angi said...

You've been on my google reader for a long time and I love the comment idea. Hermit Crab shell from the beach containing decaying hermit crab parts.

bellsjo said...

oops - meant to say lovely blog in my first post lol

Amber said...

What a fun bag Amy! The best thing I have found in my pockets always happens after I've had a baby and can fit into regular pants again and I find money - that's always super fun :-)

Tiff said...

Gorgeous bag! I don`t have anything gross in my bag but I do carry a calculator in my bag in case I ever need to add something up.

Mare said...

This bag is perfect for summer. It is adorable.

I think I have the largest collection of receipts in the world hanging out in my purse! HEE HEE

Mommyof2girlz said...

Love all the fabric combination's!

A pocket of ketchup that opened up in the pocket of my diaper bag...put hand right into it..ick.

Thanks for the giveaway :)
stephd@sewfierce.com

Sara said...

once, i knew i had put a peppermint patty in there but i couldn't find it.... then, days later while i was digging for a pen, i found it. all over my fingers and everything else, too. *ick*

gorgeous purse, and i promise not to put melty chocolate in it! ;)

Jenny said...

I love that purse! Great color combos! The grossest thing I found were some molding mandarin orange segments in a zippy bag! I can remember the treats for my kiddos I just don;t always remember they are in there.....

Deb said...

I don't think I'd seen all the variety in the Wonderland fabrics, but they are delightful in the purse! What a great giveaway! I can't think of anything weird in my purse..just tons of junk that makes it the heaviest bag to carry!

The Zoo Keeper-ette said...

awesome bag!! hmmm...bandaids- my boys ALWAYS need one :)

Marissa said...

I love the bag, I once found a gum wrapper that had gum in it but it had be smashed, it was really gross!

Kaye Prince said...

That bag is super-sweet and I love Moda's Wonderland line! The oddest thing I found in my purse was a used piece of soap (like the end of the bar) - very odd. Currently I actually have one pink ballet slipper in my purse and while I know how it got there it's still a little odd :D

lesley said...

oooh, it's gorgeous! the grossest thing in my purse these days is a snotty kleenex, courtesy of the 3-month long cold my baby has had :( ew.

Jane said...

That is beautiful! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

Ruth said...

Love, love, love this bag and hope to win it. The grossest thing in my purse had to be the tissues from my son's very bad, extremely bloody nose with clots. YUCK!! What's a mama to do?

Christine said...

I love your bag - the colors are GREAT! The most random thing in my purse is my rosary. I never leave home without it!

Liz said...

Well, one time my then 1 year old found a "feminine hygiene product" in my purse and started playing with it at the dentist's office. Fun times!

beagoodmom said...

cute bag! I always seem to have a Nukkie so dirty that I would never let my baby suck on it. So, why have it in my purse>? Darned if I know.

QuiltyGoodness said...

Thanks for the giveaway! The grossest things in my purse have been: old cough drops that the paper won't come off, tampons that the wrapper came off, and cookies that I forgot about and crumbled everywhere.

The bag is beautiful and I would love to carry my knitting things in it. I am new to sewing, an old hand at knitting.

The best thing in my purse are the 54 poems (one every Monday morning) that my husband wrote to me during the first year we were dating. They are small four-liners and fit on two pages. I always want them with me. Sheryl K.

Celeste said...

I LOVE this bag!! I have to say that the grossest thing in my purse is probably a pack of melted gum! Yuck.

What a wonderful bag and a generous giveaway. The ickiest thing found in my purse is when my daughter used to put her used sucker sticks back in my purse. I was glad she wasn't littering, but it was still a sticky mess till I got her to but the sticks back in the wrappers.

charonfamily said...

This is an AWFUL first impression and before I tell you what it is... I want you to know I knew it didn't smell right and I DO clean out my purse, I guess just not often enough. I pack the world in my purse, and actually I call It the "kid catch-all" more than I call it a purse... alright, alright already.... do you want to know..... MOLDY PEACHES! And I don't mean a cd of the band. Yikes. I instantly got the overwhelming desire to throw up when I found it. It was tucked into a pocket (a very deep pocket):-) P.S. I love Park City... I used to snowboard at the Canyons on a weekly basis. Can't beat going to BYU and almost flunking out 'cause i was in Park city!

ecky said...

usually that would be any item of food that had been in my daughter's mouth that she decided to spit into my purse!

Jenn said...

The grossest item is always, and constantly, mushy apples. Ugh!

Beautiful bag!

Chris & Abbie said...

A free bag?! My day is complete! I change bags so often that I confess I don't find too many strange things in them. Although, we borrowed a suitcase from my parents once and a year later they found an old pair of underwear in it! Yuck!

craftymama said...

Love the bag! Grossest thing in my purse RIGHT NOW...half eaten cheerios :)

Kim said...

Your tote is adorable and I would love to win it. Thanks for the opportunity for this great giveaway.

The All time GROSS thing I found in my sewing tote was a rotten banana with fruit fly's around it. Yuck.. I put the banana in my tote so I could eat something for breakfast on my way to a guild meeting. Unfortunately I forgot to eat the banana and was horrified to find it in my sewing studio about 2 weeks later. Ugh.. Now that has to be the worst. Ha!!

Valerie said...

Oh that's a gorgeous bag!

I have a 5 year old boy, so I have found many gross things in my purse :) And many normal things covered in gross bodily fluids. Ahhh 5, it's such a fun age :)

Sarah said...

Your purse if lovely!! As far as what's in my purse- I carry a diaper bag and I'm sure there's at least one dried up wipe with buggers on it somewhere. Gross enough for ya?

Addy said...

Oohhh! I LOVE it!

I have carried a dirty diaper in my purse! The joys of being a mom! I did not have a blog when you had your quilt show...I hope you do it again, now I have a blog!

Rebecca said...

the bag is gorgeous! love wonderland hmm.... grossest thing, is probably all the bits of old snacks from my DD and all the random things she finds on walks... sticks, flowers, bugs.

Promise I won't let any bugs in this bag if I win ;)

panhandler said...

So many fun fabrics I would carry that everywhere! It's lovely!!!!

Digital Misfit said...

I ♥ the Wonderland fabrics!

My purses are always filled with the most random clutter. My main bag currently holds such odd items as ONE crystal chandelier prism, a small handful of dyed freshwater pearl beads (broken necklace), 2 tiny sample bars of handmade soap, and a handful of coupons that have probably expired.

robinsonsarewaiting said...

oh boy... I think the sticky gross cough candies are the worse... but I'm a new mommy - who knows what I'm going to find now!

crzycrft said...

I love the purse! It would work GREAT for my trip to New York in a month. I've always wanted to make a purse but haven't had the courage yet. The grossest thing I have found in my purse is melted rolos without the shiny package. ICK Fingers crossed that I win - crzycrft@aol.com

tiffany said...

Love this purse, all the girls at work would be soooo jealous!
The grossest thing that ever fell out of my purse was a tampon that fell out of the wrapper. AAAAHHH talk about embarassment when it dropped out at the market checkout in front of everyone! LOL

Lisa said...

Beautiful bag! The grossest thing I found in my purse was a 1 week old sandwich & banana :( I had gone on vacation & forgot to take out my lunch leftovers from work ....ewww

That bag is so great and the fabrics are yummy! The random thing in my purse at the moment would be five rocks my mom brought me from Israel. That is not their permanent home! transeau@sbcglobal.net

Jennifer said...

My purse has all kinds of random weirdness in it sometimes.. anything from dog treats to deoderant, to lose tampons that have fallen out of their wrapper. I always clean it out before I fly somewhere because I'm afraid they'll search me and find something strange!

Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win. You can register for my giveaway at http://ratherbecrafting.blogspot.com

Stacey - Elle Belle said...

I carry the worlds smallest purse... okay it's not really THAT small, but I always have to carry a tote bag too because nothing fits in my purse. Consequently I don't ever find anything gross in there... there's hardly anything in there in the first place. love your giveaway!

Brenda said...

You used such beautiful fabrics. I love it.
Every Sunday at church my bag seems to be the dumping ground for used gum, unwanted candy. That's what grandmas are for.

Kelli said...

OOO...I adore Wonderland!

throuthehaze said...

I love the purse! The grossest thing wasnt what was IN the purse its what was ON it. Apparently my sisters cat peed on the floor and i sat my purse right on it. Im still trying to get the smell out.

Martha said...

I'm pretty sure that the grossest thing I've found in my purse is a dirty diaper wipe from cleaning up a gross diaper. needless to say, the whole thing went into the wash (luckily it was a washable bag).

coffeechris said...

love the bag....my purse has had many gross things over the years...worst perhaps dark chocolate melted on the bottom

Anya said...

Thankfully there is nothing gross in my bag. I do carry small packages of Splenda. thanks for the chance.

elizabeth said...

I just had way too much fun reading the above comments!
I have to say the yuckiest thing I've found was in my pocket, not purse. I had some Tums Smoothies antacids in my jeans pocket. I got splashed doing some dishes and thought nothing of it until that night when I went to empty my pockets and came out with a sticky handful of pastel goo.
ick. double ick.

Leslie said...

this bag is gorgeous...i would be thrilled to win it.

O my goodness, your fabric choices are just too cute! I love it!

What a great purse! Thanks for the opportunity to win and have it live with me. The grossest thing I found in my purse was the small bag of catsup that broke open in the bottom. YUCK! What a mess!

Rebecca said...

I love that line of fabric! My purse-problem is things missing constantly because my girls are always raiding it - money, chapstick, tissues, candies - always gone.

Katherine said...

Oh! I love the bag! The last time I cleaned out my purse, I found 13 chapsticks/lipsticks/glosses. It appears that I have a bit of a problem. Or maybe problems... I'd love to fill this one up with costmetics too! :)

luke and pamela said...

this is beautiful!

i found an old, old, old smashed banana in my bag once... i don't ever take bananas out of the house anymore.

kate said...

I once found a seriously linty antacid. I ate it anyway.

Tina said...

What a cute bag! This isn't gross, but sometimes I'll wrap a chocloate chip cookie from Souplantation in a napkin and put it in my purse for later. Inevitably I'll forget about it and find it hard as a rock at some later date! Such a loss...

Sue Cahill said...

Love the bag!

I always carry a kitchen towel to slop up my dog's drool when I walk him. He's a Basset Hound so he drools a lot and the towel gets gross really quick.

When my third child, now 19, lost the little ring from his circumcision I was changing his diaper at the mall. I didn't want to announce it to my husband when we came out to the crowd so I just stuck it in my purse. Months later his older brother, then 2, pulled it out of the bottom of my purse during a dinner at my in-law's house and held it up..."what's THIS, Momma???" My mother in law didn't find it all that funny but I couldn't stop laughing!!

Well, the purse is beautiful as usual. I have a gross story which is almost to gross to share, but since you asked. While living in HI we were at the beach with friends and there teenage daughter. Who had just started getting her menstral cycle, She explained her need to change: to her mother a I wanting to know what to do as we were at a beach with no restroom. We explained to her to find a trash bag in the car and then place that it HER MOTHERS purse. Thinking she'd just depose of the used femine product at the nearest trash can. Noone put anymore thought into it. We went about our day in the sun. Four days later after recovering from our sun burn. I proceeded to clean out my purse because it seem really full, I figured to many reciepts again. Much to my surprise I reached into find a pourly wraped used teenagers femine product in the bottom of my purse. Not my child! I pay much more attention to direction given to girls now. Sorry its gross.!

Ashley said...

Linda said...

Love, the purse!!! Right now, my purse has about 6 plastic coke tops---you know there are rewards in there!

Christina said...

would LOVE this bag! it's so fabulous! grossest thing ever in my purse...an open tube of lipstick with random purse crumbs stuck all over the lipstick. ick. at least i noticed it before using!christinaleigh1@gmail.com

Liz said...

Your bag is gorgeous. I would love to carry it. I can definitely say bananas, old ones may make the top of my gross list. But I wouldn't carry them in your bag, promise! I would make my kids eat them all.

Bowlby said...

That purse is divine! I found dog food in my purse the other day. Not good.
