Blessed Not Blind Designs (Cloth Gift Bags Giveaway!)

My bloggy friend Kelly of miskellany has opened an Etsy shop!  A little about Kelly and her newly opened shop Blessed Not Blind Designs in her own words:

I am a recent brain surgery survivor. I had a cavernoma resected from my optic chiasm a few short months ago. The doctors told me that I was going to go completely blind, but instead, I have lost only some of my vision. I am very blessed to still able to chase my son, drive, and even sew and crochet. I had some unexpected free time recently, and I decided to do some sewing. So much sewing that I decided to start an Etsy store, Blessed Not Blind Designs.

If you are interested in purchasing cloth napkins, taggie baby blankets, reusable cloth bags (gift bags and sandwich bags), little boy boxer shorts, or any of my other handmade items, come take a look!  Each item sold also purchases a book for a child in need.  Please contact me about custom orders or items you would like to see in my shop.

I love that Kelly's shop is filled with eco-friendly reusable items designed to help you reduce your reliance on disposable paper products.  In honor of the holidays, we thought it would be fun to feature some of her cloth gift bags!  (On a somewhat related note, Kelly and I will be collaborating again this year on a Green Holiday series.  Stay tuned for upcoming posts!)

Wouldn't you love to give someone a gift in one of these classy beauties:

The bags measure approximately 9" x 12" (red and green plaid) and 10" x 17" (red with gold paisley) and come with a ribbon to tie them closed.  Kelly sent me a couple of bags to keep and a couple to giveaway, and I'll confess that I won't be wrapping any gifts in my bags except those intended for my own immediate family, so that I can reclaim the bags after the gift-opening takes place.
