Love Ruffles? Win a Shop Credit to Gussy Sews! {Fabulous Giveaway}

Share To:

Happy Friday everyone! We are so excited to be able to feature a giveaway from one of our favorite sponsors…Gussy Sews! Gussy Sews was started by Gussy who, a few years ago, decided she wanted to learn how to sew. She borrowed her mom’s sewing machine, started reading some books, and taught herself the skill. She learned that her style was ruffles, and began incorporating ruffles into her designs. Gussy designs the most adorable totes, laptop cases, camera straps, headbands, make up bags, and so many other items…all with her signature ruffle. Did we mention she is one of the sweetest girls we know? Read more about Gussy’s wonderful storyย here.

This week, we are giving away TWO $50 shop credits to Gussy Sews!

Please use the widget below to enter. Good luck!
