handmade for Newtown

have you seen the handmade for newtown auction???

my dear friend rachael of imagine gnats and kelly of casa crafty were so moved to help the poor community of Newtown Ct that they asked several of the crafty folks they knew to help also.  and handmade for newtown was born.

i made a little itty bitty 241 tote for the auction... it is seriously adorable!
what little girl wouldn't want an adorable purse with bunnies and teddies on it???
i used some pearl bracelets from lizzy house and the pink box dot from aneela.  the bunnies and the inside cherry stripe are a japanese print i picked up from the gathering place (one of my awesome lqs's)
it measures 7" from bottom to bag opening and 13.5" from bottom to the top of the strap.  the bag will arrive complete with lots of girly paraphernalia stuffed into it. 
so go on over...  
bid and help a very worthy cause.

and if you have a little girl in your life that needs an adorable purse... here is where you need to go.

 For each item sold, 100% of the price goes to the Newtown Parent Connection.  Bidding for this auction will be live through 10 pm EST on January 18.
