Hands Full Creations {review+giveaway}




Yay!  I'm so excited to feature a fabulous line of handmade handbags, purses, wallets, and more from Hands Full Creations!




In the shop you'll find a huge selection of handmade accessories, from funky to sophisticated, and everything in between!  Hobo bags, clutches, produce bags, wristlets... but it doesn't just stop at variety though!


You must get to know the sweetest shop owner, Sarah, who creates these bags and puts together the awesome fabric combinations!  She loves a great vintage piece, so you can check out her made from vintage section in the shop to find one of a kind prints and styles, too!


Plus, I am in love with her product line names.  Above, is the Claire wristlet {in a fantastic print!} and below, the Katherine wallet! {again, this fabric makes my heart sing!}


I also got to know sweet Sarah's favorite organization, Band of Angels.  They provide information and resources on Down Syndrome.  From their website:

"We want the world to see the sameness, not the difference, of people with Down syndrome."



Isn't that lovely?  What a beautiful mission.  Band of Angels also offers information on the autism spectrum as well.  Head over to the website to find resources, support groups, products, more.


Hands Full Creations is a perfect package:  great fabrics, quality products, and a seriously fabulous shop owner making things run!

Here is my lovely little Katherine wallet!  Isn't it beautiful?

I especially love all the little compartments!  I am frequently losing my cards, and so it's nice to have plenty of space for all of them, and a gorgeous package to wrap them up!

My checkbook and big old android phone even fit in there!  The magnet snap closure is such a great feature too!  This little wallet sure packs a punch!  I just love it!


Sarah is offering up a $30 Gift Certificate to Hands Full Creations!  Yay!

  23. My favorite is the Katherine Wallet in the Heart on a String print. The inside is as pretty as the outside! Since this was featured on the post, my 2nd fave would be the Peggy Sue Handbag in the Totally Mod print.
