Mrs. Sew and Sew FREE Handbag Giveaway!! Enter by 9/7/16 for your chance to win this beautiful fabric handbag!

My New Favorite Bag in Chronic Illness

For many of us in chronic illness, our bodies change a lot. From weight issues, effects on our cognition or physical sensitivities, a myriad of foreign symptoms – it can be difficult to find solutions for the many new problems that arise.

One of my constant issues is how physically sensitive I’ve become. I am sensitive to touch, light, sounds, and the list goes on. Over the last three years one of the solutions I had to embrace was a lighter, smaller handbag. Larger bags had become far too painful to carry, even if they barely had anything in them.

These lightweight fabric handbags are perfect for those with physical sensitivities in chronic illness! It's become my go-to bag! Enter to win this giveaway by 9/7/16!
Fabric Handbag Giveaway: Front Zipper

Recently my mother-in-law began sewing these adorable handmade fabric bags. And the one she gave me has quickly become my favorite bag! It’s lightweight, fits just enough of my personal necessities, and the mixed prints are cute and stylish.

Earlier this summer I offered to help her set up an Etsy shop and I’m so excited to say she accepted! We’ve worked hard to get everything ready and today is finally her SHOP OPENING!

Even better? She’s hosting a giveaway of one of her handmade bags and I wanted you all to have an opportunity to win! Mine looks almost identical to this bag she’s giving away:

    I have made cute little bags like these. They are so handy and easy to wear when you can’t or don’t want a larger bag. I live in Canada so I can’t enter your contest.

      Hi Joy! What a great connection with the yellow and awareness for your illness – I’m the same way with Lyme green, looking for little ways to wear awareness colors. I passed on your compliment to my MIL! I agree she’s done a great job with these. Thanks for entering the contest!

    So beautiful Kami!! Tell your MIL I wish her much success in her new shop! That is very exciting. I just read all about her story on her Etsy bio and think it is such a wonderful thing she started this new business.

      Hi Valerie! Oh my goodness, yes. The heavy handbags are just out of the question for regular use. I’ve loved having a lighter version – definitely recommend these! Hope you’re having one of the better days, deary.
