Giveaway: Gussy Sews

by Nicole

Nicole lives near the beach in Southern California with her husband and three young kiddos. She writes a a lifestyle blog about creativity, family life, community, and all sorts of other fun stuff, and also keeps a homeschool journal called The Bennettar Academy. Her most recent (free!) ebook is about why and how to make more time for reading.

Today is the third day of our annual Home for the Holidays week and as we enter our second round of giveaways, I”m sure today”s gift idea won”t disappoint.

I love promoting handmade gift options for the holidays and I just adore the Gussy Sews shop for its variety of beautiful, distinct pieces, ranging from accessories to tote bags, zipped pouches and more! Gussy”s items are are made with utmost attention to quality and have a lovely handmade flair to them.

Gussy, the sweet girl (mama-to-be actually!) behind the ruffles, sent me a variety of fun items to review, and I”m just smitten. My cozy crocheted cowl kept me warm all week while I was camping at the beach and I love to pair it with my sassy ruffled headband.

The small zipped pouch is the perfect size to organize a bit of makeup, hold your phone and cash, or collect a few friendly business cards at a conference.

My medium zipped pouch will be perfect to store a few sewing supplies, my sunglesses, or odds and ends in the bottom of my purse.

Isn”t this a fun collection of goodies?! One small and one medium zipped pouch, ruffled headband and infinity cowl scarf.

Would you like to win the set? I”d love for you to give out these items to a few people you love this Christmas.
