Biddy Bags

There's nothing like a good local initiative that gives back to the community, especially when it means I can buy pretty bags like this one.

Biddy Bags is a Redcliffe based enterprise which combines the creative designs of young women with the crochet skills of older women. Bags aren't their only product, they also create cute little clutches and the most beautiful soft washers. Order before Christmas for 15% off.

My bag was made by Jan, you know how I know that? Because the inside pocket of the bag tells me a little story about her, isn't that the sweetest :)

Even if you've finished your Christmas shopping and can't spare another cent still go check out the website for the great banner photo, the idea behind Biddy Bags, the gorgeous ladies and to join their mailing list.

Very jealous! I've seen and admired Biddy Bags before. Love the colours on yours!

I don't normally do this sort of thing, but I read this post and then went to the site and bought a bag. For myself. Just like that!

I have seen these lovely bags before, and this time I was unable to resist. THe little tea pot has a lot to do with it I think!

Now I am so excited to get my own biddy bag!

Thanks for posting about them!
