I Love Gussy {Giveaway}

*UPDATED with WINNER* Congratulations to Sandy a la Mode! You won!

I met Gussy at Blissdom this year.

And I liked her a lot.

Even before she gave the (in)Courage writers these gorgeous laptop bags (only I use mine as an all purpose slash purse slash laptop slash everything bag).


She is a self-taught, talented seamstress. She makes the most darling wallets, pouches and bags I've ever seen. Plus, she's adorable and totally looks like a Gussy, although her name is not.




About Gussy:

"Gussy is a line of ruffled accessories. Each ruffle is machine sewn free-hand style, making each ruffle unique. About 16 months ago I sat down at my kitchen table -- I wanted to learn how to sew. And here I am now, offering wallets, zipped pouches of all sizes, laptop bags, and note cards (all with my signature ruffle) to those that love a little flair!"

Me: Oh, to be so talented!

I think my favourite would be the black and white cheque book cover with the red ruffle. Classic colours that look great!
I'm off to blog now... Thanks for the giveaway;)

Kimberley said...

Oh I LOVE the Gussy for Work netbook bag. I'd probably use it just as a regular purse though, but it's so cute!!!!

LaVonne said...

I like the netbook sized bag that is black and white with the pink ruffle. So cute!

TDM Wendy said...

Lovin' the Gus for Work seafoam print laptop back. Darling. But deep inside my heart I am wondering how long it would stay cute like that. You know, with 3 kids and all.

CraftyMummy said...

Just blogged your giveaway too!

I won a Gussy bag from Nester's giveaway marathon. Her sewing is top quality. I love the bag. If I win this I would get a bag for my daughter. She loves mine and I'm fearful it will disappear!

Laura said...

I posted the website on my Face book saying that you were having a giveaway for this Shop!

Thank you for all your wonderful and inspiring stories! I am trying to find a mission to go on next month to Mexico.

I love the laptop bags - not the netbook ones, the full-size laptop bags. Would LOVE to have one! Various color schemes appeal to me.

Mrs. Pear said...

I love the baby blankets. I have been trying to knit or crochet baby blankets for my baby gifts now, and with a move, there is a baby in September who is probably going to miss out...unless I win the gift cert, in which case she is getting a sweet blanket.

Oh, was I supposed to be something for me - I love giving a good gift! That works!

RLR said...

Oh my lovely! My favorite is the b/w bag with the yellow ruffle in the header - though I see it's not for sale right now. I'd love to fill it with my calendar, keys, phone, and then keep it organized with a Lovely Gus, a Skinny Gus and a Ruffle Gus inside! Probably after that, my laptop wouldn't fit anymore!

heresthediehl said...

seriously love any of those zippered pouches! my favorite is probably lovely gus #20. so cute!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

What a great giveaway. I love the laptop bag....I am going to blog about it tomorrow......

Kristen M. said...

The grass-green baby blanket is my favorite - although I have no babies in the house. :)

a little bit of everything said...

The laptop work bag would be a great gift for my daughter's upcoming birthday!

Cathy said...

Um...Gus for Word Seafoam Laptop Bag??? YES, PLEASE!!!

...entry #1...;)

heather said...

So many choices! It's hard to pick just one!

I really like the Lovely Gus - Limited Edition, floral zipped pouch - 3, which is decorated with a pretty floral fabric and dark reddish ruffle. So pretty!

Thanks for doing this give-away!

Love all of the zippered pouches! Thanks for the chance!

Evie said...

The pouches and ruffled note cards are so sweet!

Julie Bagamary said...

The ruffles are such a fun touch. I like the network bag in blue/green and the medium pouch. I'd use them for holding quilting projects of course.

Amanda said...

Oh how I <3 Gussy! Ruffles make my heart go pitter patter! And the fabrics she uses are just darling!

Rebecca said...

Those bags are yummy...I really like the one on the home page on the right hand side (navy with yellow), but can't find it on the website. The netbook sized bags are beautiful! Great site!

Scott and Emily: said...

I like the grape baby blanket--a delicious color, and it's so hard to find a good purple these days. I'm in the BABY stage of life :)

Jessica said...

LOVE them all, but black and white is def. my favorite! :)

The Halbert Home said...

I would choose the laptop bag. I wish she had purses. I would love that ruffle on a purse!

King of King's Princess said...

I really like big bags for the laptop but would personally like to own the little zipper poach. I use currently pencil bags in my purse to organize and I think that a super cute bag would be spectacular.

Bethy said...

I would love that black and white with the yellow on the front. I suppose it's a laptop bag but momma here would use it for everything!

Laura Kathryn said...

Ah I am so glad that I just stumbled upon this! It's my first time visiting your page, and I am so excited about it! I love the laptop/work bags...so cute! Well, everything is actually so cute. Hope I win!

I have a big ol' laptop so I'd need the Gus for Work laptop bag. But I also really like the zippered pouches, and I can only imagine the fun my 2 year old would have with a small zippered pouch to carry around her daily treasures in. I love the ruffles!

I think that I would have to go for the laptop bag (but the netbook bags are super cute so that might be a possibility too, it would just have to be an all purpose bag instead).

I would love the checkbook cover. My hubby has accidentally grabbed mine at times and caused me to panic thinking I'd lost it. I don't think he would ever accidentally grab those cute checkbooks. Love it! I also love the notecards. I try to write lots of notes of encouragement and I love to use beautiful notecards.

Everything is great, but I guess my favorite is large zippered pouch, style 7. Thanks for the giveaway. By the way, loved your husbands videos and I hope that those who need them can find them. Very courageous of your hubby to put himself out there to help others.
