A little mention for fellow blogger and 'craft activist!; the lovely Ashley from Upcycled by Ash.
Ash creates gorgeous upcycled bags made from reclaimed, and donated fabrics. Ash suffers from chronic Lyme disease, but this does not stop her creating awesome upcycled treats, raising funds for non-profits (such as the Gulf Project, Nature org, National Wildlife, Lymenaide, and Turn the corner)
Ash is currently holding a generous giveaway on her blog, the winner can select one of six of her upcycled bags which include:
My personal favourite is this gorgeous Pin-Up Girl tote bag:
"Big enough to carry magazines and all your personal goodies. The tote is roughly 9 inches deep 14 inches long and has a 2 inch wide bottom. The two straps are 19 inches around, long enough to sling over your elbow or hitch up over your shoulder. There is a full zip across the top of the bag allowing for easy access.
I have plenty of these fabrics thanks to my fantastic freecycle friend Ginger! If you like the bag but you want it in a different size let me know and I'd be happy to whip it up for you."
