    Love the wonderland purse! I could use a new one as the current one is falling apart from carrying “everything but the kitchen sink” ! Thanks and I always enjoy your blog.

    Amy you’re crazy! I love that bag! The grossest thing found in my purse? Last week I found a diaper that I had taken off my son 3 days before! (Yes the purse is deep, things get lost in there!)

    Priscilla says:

    I would love to win this bag, it is lovely. I have almost anything in my bag, the most useful is the wet wipes package, the funniest are the things my 4-year-old hides in it, and the grossest item was the melted coffee sweet I keep it there for those loooong parent-teacher meetings to survive :-)
    But I would take good care of this beautiful bag and would never put anything so dangerous in it! :-)

    Oooh, pretty, pretty! What a fun idea — you’re going to get some great comments. I love all the pockets in your purse. I currently have two individual cupcake carriers in my purse — and they’re empty! ;-)

    LOVE Wonderland. Great bag. Random thing found and also icky…you know those hose type cut off things you find by the box in shoe stores for trying on shoes…found a pair of those, used, in my bag.

    Susan says:

    I have receipts that are years old stuffed in pockets from grocery stores to Christmas shopping. Love the Wonderland fabric and purse.
    A very nice giveaway; thanks for the chance to win.

    I Love the purse and as far as yuk…I have found (unchewed) gum at the bottom of my purse, with fuzz and lint sticking to it. It made it’s way out of the wrapper, and made my purse smell yummy.

    Goddess in Progress says:

    Adorable, count me in!

    Well, I have twin toddlers. So my purse generally contains at least one or two diapers (unused, thank you), a baggie of wipes, and most certainly some snack remnants. Half a cereal bar, some crushed pretzels.

    I promise I would not similarly abuse this bag! I’d keep it just for roses and perfume. :-)

    Becky says:

    Sorry about the above delete. I forgot to tell you what is the grossest thing in my purse. Probably a ratty-tatty list about 5 pages long that I have carried for years and years. I keep adding to it but never re-do it. It is a list of books I want to read. That’s the best I can do since my kids are all grown and there are not more snotty noses to wipe.

    I love that purse. LOVE IT. If I win her, she will not be going anywhere but everywhere I go.

    Emma says:

    What a gorgeous bag, count me in! I regularly have random items in my handbag, usually small-child related. After all, who doesn’t need a (single) spare bootie while at the office? The weirdest handbag item I know of is a relative who carries a mini-welder in her handbag

  13. 13
    Debbie says:

    I love all the pockets in that bag, Amy. Please count me in. Sorry, the worst thing you’ll find in my purse or pockets is a used tissue!

    Amy, this is such and awesome Wonderland bag! Generous giveaway!

    Wammy says:

    What a great Give Away. I don’t carry a purse (I caried a diapper bag for the twins as big as China seems like forever and vowed never to carry anything again) But I would definately carry one of these! I once carried and found a Reese’s Cup in my back pocket anf forgot it was there. Melted and got everywhere. A first glace it looked like I had had a little bathroom mishap…..

  16. 16
    Brooke says:

    Great bag! I recently had a tupperware of strawberries explode in my bag. Yeah, I had to throw that one out after continuing to find residual stickiness weeks later and after multiple cleanings. Sigh.

  17. 17
    Terriaw says:

    Fabulous purse, especially with all those pockets on the inside. I set my purse on the floor at a friend’s house and the ants they had unknowingly invading their house liked the smell of jolly ranchers in the bottom of my purse. I was so grossed out, I ended up having to throw my purse away!

    Sherry says:

    I love bags and this would be a lovely one to use this summer. Great looking bag.

    Deana says:

    What a generous giveaway! I used to keep my purse on the counter by the garage door which happens to be by the stove. My wonderful husband was baking a ham one day. As he was lifting the ham out of the pan, it slipped off the meat fork and back into the pan. “Ham juice” (orange juice, honey, brown sugar and the drippings from the ham) splashed everywhere. My pursed was covered inside and out. We were amazed at the great coverage! Since parts of it were leather, I was not able to clean it. Since then, I don’t keep my purse there and I haven’t carried a purse as i haven’t found a new one.

    Margaret says:

    what a wonderful giveaway. Thank you for such generosity. I don’t often have gross things in my purse, but today for some reason I have worm medication for horses and dogs. It’s that time of year!

    Michaela says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! It is a beautiful bag! You can almost always find gardening tools in mine – pruners, gloves… I am a landscape designer, that’s why.:)

  22. 22
    Bethany says:

    I love the bag!!! I think the most gross things I have found in my bag are melted hershey kisses. What girl does’t like having a bit of chocolate in her purse just in case of a child melt down, or a long line, or traffic, or Monday. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out so well if it meits!

  23. 23
    Marg M says:

    thankyou for a great give away!

    katrina says:

    Funny you should mention:

    The other day, I went to the movies and got some Junior Mints, which are like little soft chocolate covered peppermint patties. Anyhow, I put the unfinished box into my purse when we left the movie (Saturday night) into my purse, and forgot about it. WELL, when I came to my purse Monday morning, there were (of course) chocolatey gooey mints EVERYWHERE. Cleaned them up, fine…but then Tuesday morning I definitely found one that I had missed squished onto the back of my (leather) agenda with a bill REALLY glued onto the other side of the mint, which for some reason grossed me out to no end, plus I had to try and rescue the leather from the gross tackiness of my candy.

    Jean says:

    What a pretty bag! I don’t know how you can part with it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I am glad I found your blog when you hosted the quilt festival.

  26. 26
    Vivian says:

    Love the bag. I could definitely use it. My current one is a bit tattered and filled will useless grocery receipts for food already eaten. That’s not really gross — just useless.

  27. 27
    Jackie Russell says:

    Cute purse! I love the wonderland fabrics. I’m kind of a neat freak so I don’t think I have anything gross in my purse. I did forget about a box of junior mints in my purse on a hot day and they melted all over, that was gross. I promise I will not to put any Junior mints in this purse if I win. : )

    Michelle says:

    The bag is gorgeous and I love the wonderland fabric. I will have to tell you about a random item in my purse. This just happened 2 days ago. My husband had been looking for his charger for his blackberry for a week and asked me a few times if I had seen it, and I said no. Then 2 days ago, he needed something and I told him I had in my purse. Well, he gets my purse out and inside he finds the charger. I don’t know how it got there and I am not sure how I didn’t notice. I will have to tell him that it shows that I don’t reach in very often for my wallet.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Oh I would absolutely be thrilled if I won this bag!! It is beautiful!…and yes those pockets are great, I am embarassed to say that i may need to use one for all the recipets that I stuff in my purse. :)

    rlbates says:

    Lovely bag!

  32. 32
    Joanna says:

    Love the bag!!! Just lovely!

    Well the most random thing would be salt – I love me some salt, so I always collect the little salt packets at takeout places. Only problem is somehow they always leak and my purse gets little bits of salt all through it. I should fix that. lol!!

  33. 33
    Ali macg says:

    what a lovely bag and fantastic fabric. Worst thing found in my bag…a piece of squashed macaroon bar ( a very sweet scottish sweetie) it had obviously been there a while as was covered in fluff!

  34. 34
    Stephanie D. says:

    Just changed from a winter purse to a summer one, so there isn’t really anything exciting or gross in there. Probably the most unusual is a pair of bandage scissors.

  35. 35
    the 6 o'clock stitch says:

    Oh, what a wonderful bag! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. The grossest thing I’ve ever found in our diaper bag…definitely the squished disgusting (who knows how old) chicken nugget in a ziploc bag. Smelled awful!

    I’m hosting a giveaway this week as well…details at

  36. 36
    Cheryl says:

    I would love to win that bag!

    The grossest thing I found in my purse was a jelly packet (you know those little plastic containers they give away at diners when you get breakfast) that had opened in the bottom. Of course, all sorts of hair and lint had stuck to it. Yuck!

  37. 37
    Natalie says:

    Such a gorgeous bag! I have just recently cleaned my bag so nothing gross in there right now…although, I did have to wash it in the washing machine because some of my gum basically disintegrated on the bottom of my purse…there was sticky goo on everything. I even had to wash off the loose change that was down there! It was gross!

    roseylittlethings says:

    Such a great bag! One time I won a contest at a baby shower because I had the most lipsticks in m purse I think I had about 3o, yikes!

  41. 41
    Beth says:

    What a great bag! I’d love to win. Like others here the grossest thing I’ve found is an old dirty diaper (going on 4 days). The closest competitor was some 2 week old string cheese. I’m not sure how we miss those things, but motherhood sure has a way of re-arranging priorities. Cleaning out my purses/bags has fallen very low on the list of things “to do” :)

  42. 42
    Nichole says:

    Love the Wonderland purse! I’ve been drooling over your Wonderland fabrics here lately. I need to get me some. Grossest thing ever in my purse – a chewed up and spit out fruit snack from my 2 year old son. He didn’t like the flavor and unbeknownst to me spit it into my bag. That was a fun treat to find later when I was digging around for something. EWWW! Good thing I could launder that bag. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  43. 43
    Meghann says:

    What a lovely bag and generous giveaway. I really don’t carry much in my purse other then the endless amounts of receipts I tend to keep in there:)

    Thanks again for the generous giveaway.

    Michele says:

    What a great bag. It will be a wonderful prize for some lucky person. Hope it’s me!

  45. 45
    Artsy Momma says:

    The weirdest thing I found in my purse was a dried up old apple slice. Something I am willing to bet got its way into my purse thanks to a little girl who was done with eating her apple and wanted to save it for later!

  46. 46
    Barbie says:

    Beautiful…I love that Wonderland fabric too. In fact, I just bought a charm pack to make a bag for myself.

    The worst thing to find in my purse is a half eaten, unwrapped fruit bar. Man are they sticky…

  47. 47
    two hippos says:

    The bag looks great. I’m pretty unoriginal (and don’t often carry a purse) so I think the grossest thing is chewed gum in a wrapper waiting to be disposed.

  48. 48
    Chantie says:

    Hi Amy–love your bag! Grossest thing was definitely tissues from son’s bloody nose–eeew!

  49. 49
    Erin says:

    Love that Wonderland! And that purse looks amazing! Weird thing currently in my purse: probably the bottle of yucky orange Glucose test drink I need for my next pre-natal appointment! I better get that in the fridge now that I think of it! :)

  50. 50
    Thistle Cove Farm says:

    The bag is beautiful and all the pockets make it handy indeed! Worst thing ever found in my purse was a rawhide chew, a gift from one of the dogs -smile-.

  51. 51
    Cassie says:

    Ok, Amy. I didn’t find these items in my purse, but my daughter did when she was about four. Imagine my pink cheeks when I turned around at church to see my daughter standing on the pew directing the worship team with two tampons she found in my purse. We laugh and laugh about this now.

    Lovely bag, Amy!

    Happy Cottage Quilter says:

    Hi Amy, Love the purse. Please enter me in your giveaway. I do carry a lot of stuff in my purse. It’s like my portable filing system :-)


  53. 53
    Mushyhed says:

    I don’t have kids so I would say the most random thing I’ve found in my bag would be a pacifier. I can only assume my friend’s little boy threw it in there.

  54. 54
    Zlaty says:

    Great purse! Thank you for your generous giveaway!!!
    The most gross thing it’s maybe a used chewing gum in a wrapper. :)

    Happy sewing!


  55. 55
    Mimi says:

    Oooooooooh, I love your purse…so much that I’d like to make it MY purse!

    The yuckiest thing I’ve carried in my purse is leftover food from a restaurant. You see, our pup goes with us everywhere unless it’s too warm for her to stay in the car. I save a bite of my dinner for her…this assures me of getting my seat back when I return to the car, but if it’s too warm, I take the food home to her. If I forget to give it to her, it’s YUCKY!

    Brenis says:

    Hi Amy!
    What a wonderful bag!! woohoo – please put my name in the hat to win it! I too am giving goodies away all this week :)
    Ok.. grossest thing just happened to me this last week. and eeewww!!
    Every morning I grab my daily vitamins (that i take at lunch) and shove them in my pocket. Well apparently I MISSED my iron pill -they are little bitty- and then washed my jeans. When I went to put my jeans on the other day… there was this absolutely GROSS brownish yellow gooey stain in the bottom corner of the (front)pocket!!! Took me a few minutes to figure out what in the world it was… and was totally grossed out and confused, until I did!! (yah.. even after i figured it out! lol) Definitely TMI !! But you asked!! LOL
    bright blessings! Bren

  57. 57
    Little Love Things says:

    Awesome giveaway. Love the bag!
    Probably the most grossest thing found in my purse was melted gum from the heat that stuck everywhere. It was a mess to clean up.

    Great blog! I love your work!


  58. 58
    Gnomemade says:

    Great purse – it’s just so adorable. I love the Wonderland fabrics. Strangest thing in my purse – I’m not quite sure, but it seems that everything I ever lose in my house (especially jewelry) always ends up in some random pocket in my bag…how, is still a mystery. Perhaps purse elves who like to collect shiny objects?

  59. 59
    Robin says:

    I love this bag!!! I usually have loads of little legos in my purse…my youngest makes me things and then hides them in my purse to find later…how sweet, huh? :)

    melissa s. says:

    i just checked, and i had some snakeskin and a bunch of bird feathers that holden found on a walk the other day (thanks for the reminder to clean out my purse)
    LOVE the bag!!

  61. 61
    Kenton and Marianne Ogg says:

    How fun is this purse?!?! Love love love it! My purse is always being vacuumed out because I have 2 labs and I think the grossest thing I’ve found is dog hair!

  62. 62
    Pamela says:

    What a great bag!!! My mother tells of a time when I was a toddler. She left her purse in a store and had to go retrieve it. They asked her to identify the bag by its contents. The only thing in it was saltine crackers.

  63. 63
    I Love Baby Quilts! says:

    LOVE! An item from my purse is my Aveda Purefume, #9. Purefume is so much nicer than perfume and the #9 smells like a milder version of patchouli, which I love, but dare not wear.

  64. 64
    One Little Thread says:

    I have so many random things in my handbags/purses that defy logic.

    On our recent holiday to the USA, my husband had the wrong drivers licence in his pocket, so the hire car company would not let him drive – I wished that day I did not have mine as I had to drive on the “wrong” side of the road.

    My best friend visited me from overseas and boarded the plane home (half way around the world) and discovered my house keys in her purse! Tight security meant she could not get off, nor bring them to me, although they did kindly send a message!

    Great bag – I could certainly put it to good use.

  65. 65
    Dawn says:

    Ok..this just happened Monday!! My daughter went hiking with my husband and she took her backpack. She hasn’t used it since last year. She reached in to get the snacks she packed and felt something squishey!! It was an apple from last year!! Ick! Love the bag!!

  66. 66
    Shawn says:

    I love all kinds of bags! Yours is very cute. The grossest thing I would say is a cough drop covered in lint :b

  67. 67
    girlville says:

    lovely purse! the most random/yucky thing in my purse is a piece of gum that fell out of the packaging…

  68. 68
    April M. says:

    The grossest (is that a word) thing I’ve found in my purse is a half eaten banana. Kids – you’ve gotta love ’em. :)

  69. 69
    ebook3392 says:

    Love the bag! Such cute fabric. I don’t have anything gross in my bag but I’ll tell you the most useful item outside of the wallet – my retractable tape measure. I’ve gotten lots of weird looks in stores when I pull it out, but it’s amazing how many times I’ve needed it. Added to the camera on my phone, it’s wonderful for ideas/inspiration grabbing!

  70. 70
    langlangcreations says:

    Half a croissant stuck to a diaper… which made me think it was a soiled diaper. :-p I promise I won’t let that happen to your gorgeous bag.

  71. 71
    mommymae says:

    i made a list of my diaper bag contents once…once.

    not sure about the grossest thing. probably a wet diaper since i had to throw it away at home instead of at the doctor’s office.

  72. 72
    Janet says:

    I dont have kids, so nothing gross has made its way into my purses…yet! But I am an electronics junky, so i have my blackberry, camera, netbook, and nintendo DS with me all the time!

  73. 73
    Anna says:

    Love the bag! And…. I actually found a half-chewed children’s vitamin in my purse just this morning. YECH.

    Paper Couture Blog says:

    I ofetn have litte dinosaurs and goldfish crakers in the bottom of my bag.

  75. 75
    The Retired Mama says:

    The grossest thing I found in my purse was cat pee! I have a boy cat, who has been neutered, but still likes to pee in containers. If I leave a bin uncovered or a drawer open he leaves his mark. I was able to clean out my leather purse, but my suitcase, not so much!

  76. 76
    Jennifer says:

    Cute bag! I have such a small purse, not much finds it way in there. For a small one it’s amazing what fits, though – toys, snacks, and tissue along with the usual wallet and such.

  77. 77
    Holly says:

    This bag is just lovely! I ‘love’ finding a half-eaten Gerber Arrowroot cookie at the bottom of my bag, which apparently happens too often! =)

  78. 78
    Leanna says:

    So, I’ve been walking around with a spoon in the bottom of my purse for the past week. I have NO idea how it got there or when…interesting. Thanks for the chance!

    Very cute purse. I can’t think of anything that has shown up in my purse that was gross.

    I carry a diaper bag and am forever finding dirty diapers in little plastic bags in it that we forgot to throw away from Church. It takes up a lot of space and the weight adds up!

    Zarina says:

    something in my purse which I really enjoy (privately) is these little toys of my nephew/niece. Once I opened up at the paying counter to find a heap of toy cars which my nephew so conveniently place so he can play when we’re out.

    Purple Paisley Patch says:

    Oh I love this bag, isn’t the wonderland fabric just too much! Okay, I’m about to confess, so let me start by saying “Bless me father for I have sinned!”. Many years ago, on a planet far, far away, a girlfriend and I went out for a night on the turps (drinking). We drank many, many (way too many) cocktails, including the then popular flaming lamborghinis (aka rocket fuel). We then moved onto our drinks of choice, margheritas for me (still a fave, altho it has been awhile) and cointreau for her. We thought it would be a right lark to souveneir the glasses, naughty girls we were back then, all grown up and responsible now! Anyway, the next morning I discovered two glasses in my bag, but it appears that they may not have been empty at the time we decided to put them there – icky, what a stinky bag I had!!! Thanks for a fab giveaway and a chance to confess! :-)

  86. 86
    Loris says:

    Cute,cute bag! Grossest thing in my purse? Well, thank you for asking :-) I’d have to say melted chocolate candy on a hot day….poor planning at its best.
    Got to tell you again how much I enjoy your playlist..nice music! Thanks for sharing, Loris

  87. 87
    Stacey says:

    good idea…love the bag btw…i have found a melted gummy bear..horrible.

    Jess says:

    I am in love with Wonderland!! And that’s Moda’s not Michael’s in case you had doubt. I just made a skirt for my oldest out of this! The grossest/weirdest things include: mouth guard from hockey season (3 months ago) without case, an empty vanilla extract bottle from the play kitchen, a Little Tykes dad doll, a LPS butterfly, and a small gren glass vase. And all but the first would be thanks to the kiddos, it’s amazing what they think belongs in a purse!!

    You know I’m all about the Momo lately! LOVE THIS BAG!! Crossing all my fingers, seriously.

    I carry a seam ripper and dental floss in all my purses. I think it is just good sense. :-)

    Thanks Amy!

    Toni says:

    That bag is great! I don’t usually carry a real purse anymore since I have an enormous diaper bag to contend with, along with my two little boys, so anything gross generally goes in there. Which, on any given day could be dirty diapers, wet clothes, random chewed up food spit out by a 2 year old, or bugs that the aforementioned toddler wants to take home. I promise no bugs or recycled graham crackers would find their way into this bag. (hopefully…)

  95. 95
    Amy says:

    I found a melted piece of chocolate stuck to the bottom…and when I was working I found a rotted orange at the bottom of that bag…ewwwwwwww

    Love, love your wonderland purse! So cute! Nothing gross in my purse just lots and lots of little ‘notes’ to remind myself of to dos! Thanks so much!

    Ashley says:

    Hi Amy – great bag made with some great fabric! would love to have a new bag for the summer… i try to keep the gross stuff out of my bag, but it’s currently filled with little scraps of paper and receipts and gum wrappers, which I still find kind of unpleasant!

  98. 98
    Katherine says:

    Well, the grossest thing I have come across in my purse is…..a bottle of milk that was sitting in there for, well who the heck knows how ling. It leaked all over the bag and contents. In my defense I switch my bags our a LOT! So that is why I didn’t notice sooner :)

    Oh man, have I had something gross in my purse! I won’t go into specifics because it’s sicknast, but if you want to check it out, here’s a link to the story:

    I promise not to let that happen to this bag if I win it! :)

    I used to carry salt and pepper packs in a spare change compartment in my wallet. Then the wallet fell apart and I can’t find another one with a similar extra pocket, so I’m pepperless.

    gorgeous purse and love colors!

    Kat says:

    What a great bag. Thanks for offering it to us all! The most random item in my purse, a disposable diaper (unused, of course) that’s two sizes too small for my daughter. Obviously, I don’t go through my gigantic mom-purse very often, if that can get lost in there :) Perhaps it’s time I traded up to a more chic less mom=ish purse.

    Great bag and great colors. Very cute, and nice quilting. It’s very generous of you to give it away! Thanks.

    I was reading the comments above and thinking, No one has a measuring tape – in this crowd of sewing people? Then I saw ebook does! That is my random thing, too. My mom used to always carry a little retractible tape measure in her purse or pocket and the habit rubbed off on me. I use it all the time. Forget the nail files, lipsticks, tissues, etc. – just don’t forget the measuring tape.

    Amy says:

    I love the bag! I am not sure about the grossest or oddest thing ever found in my purse. With kids, it is often dirty tissues, dirty hand wipes, my daughter’s handbows, melted crayons from leaving the purse with non melted crayons in a hot car, stickers from the pediatricians office, etc.

    I love the bag. The strangest thing in my purse at the moment is that I have TWO empty gum packages. No gum. Why are the packages still there? I have no idea. And not just one, but two! :) leafygreenes at gmail dot com

    bellsjo says:

    This bag is yummy! Thank you for the chance to win it and of course for your lovely bag. The worst thing in my bag ever has to have been the half eaten sandwich that somehow spent a week lurking at the bottom (luckily it was wrapped up) – it was green and hairy by the time I found it!

    Deb says:

    I don’t think I’d seen all the variety in the Wonderland fabrics, but they are delightful in the purse! What a great giveaway! I can’t think of anything weird in my purse..just tons of junk that makes it the heaviest bag to carry!

    That bag is super-sweet and I love Moda’s Wonderland line! The oddest thing I found in my purse was a used piece of soap (like the end of the bar) – very odd. Currently I actually have one pink ballet slipper in my purse and while I know how it got there it’s still a little odd :D

    The bag is beautiful and I would love to carry my knitting things in it. I am new to sewing, an old hand at knitting.

    The best thing in my purse are the 54 poems (one every Monday morning) that my husband wrote to me during the first year we were dating. They are small four-liners and fit on two pages. I always want them with me. Sheryl K.

    What a wonderful bag and a generous giveaway. The ickiest thing found in my purse is when my daughter used to put her used sucker sticks back in my purse. I was glad she wasn’t littering, but it was still a sticky mess till I got her to but the sticks back in the wrappers.

    charonfamily says:

    This is an AWFUL first impression and before I tell you what it is… I want you to know I knew it didn’t smell right and I DO clean out my purse, I guess just not often enough. I pack the world in my purse, and actually I call It the “kid catch-all” more than I call it a purse… alright, alright already…. do you want to know….. MOLDY PEACHES! And I don’t mean a cd of the band. Yikes. I instantly got the overwhelming desire to throw up when I found it. It was tucked into a pocket (a very deep pocket):-) P.S. I love Park City… I used to snowboard at the Canyons on a weekly basis. Can’t beat going to BYU and almost flunking out ’cause i was in Park city!

    The All time GROSS thing I found in my sewing tote was a rotten banana with fruit fly’s around it. Yuck.. I put the banana in my tote so I could eat something for breakfast on my way to a guild meeting. Unfortunately I forgot to eat the banana and was horrified to find it in my sewing studio about 2 weeks later. Ugh.. Now that has to be the worst. Ha!!

    I’m pretty sure that the grossest thing I’ve found in my purse is a dirty diaper wipe from cleaning up a gross diaper. needless to say, the whole thing went into the wash (luckily it was a washable bag).

    I just had way too much fun reading the above comments!
    I have to say the yuckiest thing I’ve found was in my pocket, not purse. I had some Tums Smoothies antacids in my jeans pocket. I got splashed doing some dishes and thought nothing of it until that night when I went to empty my pockets and came out with a sticky handful of pastel goo.
    ick. double ick.

    When my third child, now 19, lost the little ring from his circumcision I was changing his diaper at the mall. I didn’t want to announce it to my husband when we came out to the crowd so I just stuck it in my purse. Months later his older brother, then 2, pulled it out of the bottom of my purse during a dinner at my in-law’s house and held it up…”what’s THIS, Momma???” My mother in law didn’t find it all that funny but I couldn’t stop laughing!!

    Well, the purse is beautiful as usual. I have a gross story which is almost to gross to share, but since you asked. While living in HI we were at the beach with friends and there teenage daughter. Who had just started getting her menstral cycle, She explained her need to change: to her mother a I wanting to know what to do as we were at a beach with no restroom. We explained to her to find a trash bag in the car and then place that it HER MOTHERS purse. Thinking she’d just depose of the used femine product at the nearest trash can. Noone put anymore thought into it. We went about our day in the sun. Four days later after recovering from our sun burn. I proceeded to clean out my purse because it seem really full, I figured to many reciepts again. Much to my surprise I reached into find a pourly wraped used teenagers femine product in the bottom of my purse. Not my child! I pay much more attention to direction given to girls now. Sorry its gross.!

    Right now, the weirdest thing in my bag is a summary of my life insurance… as I was buying new insurance and needed to list other policy numbers on the application at the insurance office. Strange, but I realized today I’m worth WAY more dead than alive right now (gonna cancel the other policy when this one is issued… but right now, I have both).

    What a great bag! My Yorkie puppy, Ruthie Jo, would probably the best thing in my purse. :-) Thanks for the giveaway!

    The other day I found an earring with its post stuck in a piece of unchewed gum that had come out of it’s wrapper. Yuck! Time to clean out the purse!

    Great bag. And I love the Wonderland fabric!
    At any given time you can find, snot rags, soggy sucker sticks and used spongebob bandaids in the bottom of my purse ;)

  220. 220
    Mindy says:

    I love the fabric choices, and the number of pockets! I guess the oddest thing in my bag would be a stackable crayon pen from the Dollar Tree. It keeps children occupied at those odd times when they need something to settle them.

    I always hate it when chocolate gets away from me and forgotten in my bag. Or lotion explodes.

    hanna says:

    GORGEOUS bag!
    the grossest thing found in my bag would be bits of food spat out by a small child when we’re in a store and there is no rubbish bin around!

  223. 223
    Tina says:

    I would love to win your pretty bag. I guess the grossest item would be a dead lizard. Someone thought it would be funny for one to jump out at me, but the little lizard died before I opened the purse.

    Jennifer Ladd says:

    This bag is SUPER cute! I would love to tote it around town!

    Most random thing in my purse right now? A Super Why action figure hanging out right next to my lipstick. Ah … the joys of being a mommy!

    Courtney says:

    This bag is so pretty, I really like it. Being a mom (and one who cloth diapers) I’ve found lots of nasty in my purse, from dirty diapers (always in a bag of some kind thankfully) to squished foods and of course there’s the dreaded leaky sippy cup!

  226. 226
    peony paperie says:

    Right now I have a unopened snack size bag of m&m's in my purse, but the outer design has worn off (it's been in there so long)! I guess I'm waiting for my son to take potty training seriously, and I'll be ready with potty treats when he does!

  227. 227
    Heather says:

    Oh, this bag is to die for! Grossest thing in my purse….hm…old food I guess. Nothing too bad! LOL

    amity ville boronia says:

    Ummmm, a packet of gum. That then got wet, melted and stuck to everything in my bag. EW!

  232. 232
    Christina Lowry says:

    I too have left a diaper in my bag. But probably even grosser was when we were out shopping and I had been walking around holding the baby, blissfully unaware that he had thrown up on my shoulder and into my bag. Not until I went to pay did I realise I was getting funny looks, and when I put my hand in my bag for my purse, I encounted baby vomit. Niiice. :)

  233. 233
    Holly says:

    I love Wonderland too! I find many rocks, half eaten snacks and used tissues in my purse every day.

    Jody says:

    I love the uniqueness of this bag. So pretty. My five year old found a piece of unwrapped, melted gum, stuck to a penny and a tic tac. He asked me what kind of special money it was since it had all that stuff attached to it.

    I don’t know, perhaps melted chocolate… that was like washed into the bag, it didn’t wash out very well cause it was in an enclosed area. it’s fixed now though!

  237. 237
    Terri Y says:

    thanks for all you do! This bag is TOO COOL!

    My purse: guess the weirdest part would be measuring tape, don’t go anywhere without it… never know when you might find something cool and need to measure!

    oh there are so many comments for this so I know my chances are slim, but everything that can cross is crossed to win this amazing bag!! I am blown away by your talent.

    Aim says:

    This bag is beautiful, I would love to win it. A girl can never have enough bags right?

    The worst thing I found in my purse was a mouse. I was at work in Pleasant Grove, Ut. at a photo lab and reached in to get my chapstick and a mouse jumped out.

    skippedydoodah says:

    Wow that is beautiful – so well made.

    Strange things found in my purse are usually my son’s little socks, old breadsticks and once a can opener (?!?!) all courtesy off my little dude’s sneaky purse-filling…

    I really really really think this bag is awesome.

    As to the most gross thing ever was i use to have a cat when i was younger and she actually hid a dead rat inside one of my bags in the storeroom. I didnt notice until i started tracing the horrible smell. I had to throw that bag away. It was simply too gross!

  251. 251

    The grossest thing I’ve found in my bag is a bunch of eucalyptus drops that had fallen out of a pack and melted all over the lining. I miss that bag :(

    Kaye says:

    Love the Bag, 1 in 263 bloggers, what are my chances? The oddest thing I carried in my tote was my Grandsons sports cup ( for his private parts protection playing baseball) He had gone to the bathroom during the game and he removed it from its holder as it was bothering him– Guess who he asked to hold it for him?????

  257. 257
    One of us Dragonfryes says:

    Cute Bag! Please enter me in your drawing.

    Well, the best thing I find in my bag is a timely piece of gum or a mint burried in the depths just when I need it. That makes me smile.

  258. 258
    Sharon says:

    I really love your bag and would love to carry it filled with all my stuff…My worst thing in my bag is gum that I already chewed and rolled up bag in the wrapper to throw away later and always forget…..usually when I change my purse is when I remember. Thanks for the chance.


  259. 259
    Zarah says:

    That’s so sweet and happy! It makes me smile! :D

    The grossest thing… Well – not me – but a friend of mine had this cat. Outdoors cat. And they live on a farm with lots of mice. One day, her cat left her a little “gift” in her purse… Luckily, she SAW it and the “gift” was still alive and pretty unharmed (except the fact that it was SCARED!) so she just took the purse and carried it outside (with the cat indoors, obviously) and let it out again at a safe distance.

    It is really more of a sunshine story, but just the thought of what WOULD have happened if she didn’t see the cat leaving it there… YUCK!

  260. 260
    Tiff says:

    I just posted about this last month! I found a petrified pancake in my purse! I guess my kids didn’t know where else to put it. Nice of them huh?

    Love that bag! Can’t have enough!

  261. 261
    tippeny says:

    Gorgeous bag! Random thing in my bag? Not the purse I use everyday, but a bag I occasionally use as a diaper bag had a clarinet reed in it. In my ‘former life’ I was a professional musician and the reed must have been in there for over 3 years now!

  262. 262
    Bonnie says:

    I love that bag! Only thing I can think of is finding a fork in my purse. Fell off the table at a restaurant. I found it a couple days later and couldn’t figure out where it came from and why I had it in my purse. Took a while then I remembered!

    Leaha says:

    This is beautiful!
    Oh my the grossest thing – When I was a little girl I spent weeks upon weeks at my Grandparents house in the summer (It was more fun than I could ever describe). Well my Grammy & Pa took us out to dinner one night and my grandma wrapped the leftover chicken fingers up in a napkin & put them in her purse. The next time I was over – weeks later (I of course was a purse digger) I found the chicken! Yuck-o-rama!

    audreypawdrey says:

    The bag is beautiful! The worst thing I have found is melted chocolate, but I think that is going to change soon. I carry a very small purse right now, so there isn’t much room for things to hide!

  267. 267
    debbiekl says:

    Love those fabrics! I haven’t had much nasty in my purse, but my sons diaper bag is another story. That’s why I try to clean it out every night or else you’ll never know what you’ll find.

  268. 268
    Cheryl says:

    What a wonderful bag! Can’t wait to get my hands on it! Funniest things found in my bag…..My mothers teeth she forgot………her teeth were like stars, they come out at night!

    Becky says:

    Wonderful, Wonderland bag :) I haven’t had enough coffee to remember what has lived in my purse. You don’t want to live there. It will totally shorten your life. I never know what the “boys” in my life will put in there for me to carry :)

    Dallas says:

    The bag is great. I think the most random thing I carried around in my pocket was a Micro-machine VW Bus when I was in high school. I drove a vintage VW bus, so the little toy bus was kind of my icon. :)

  273. 273
    Jingle says:

    Hmmm…The most random thing I found in my purse would have to be my Mother’s slip. Yes…there is a story there. We were at a wedding and her slip just wasn’t working…so, we went to the ladies room where I told her to just lose it since it wasn’t going to cooperate so she did, but her handbag that day was small and mine was larger (which is odd because usually it’s the other way around) so she thrust it at me and said, “HERE! Put this in your purse!” LOL! I did. but then I totally space it and found it in there two days later! LOL! It was a bit of a surprise! HA!

  274. 274
    Deranged Squirrel says:

    Love the bag. I have some little old lady tendencies (putting restaurant candies and wet wipes in my purse for later use) which has resulted in a couple of sticky incidents. I think the worst is likely a wrapped chocolate that melted in my pocket. Ha.

    Hmmm, the most random thing I’ve found in my purse? I guess it would have to be what you wouldn’t find there. I keep a little bit of everything in there. You just never know what you’re going to need with a little one. :-)

    Sara says:

    ooo i ADORE this purse!

  281. 281
    Domina says:

    Oh my – the grossest thing I found in my purse was a pair of wet underwear from my potty training son. I must’ve stashed it in then forgot about it! (big purse) If I win this bag I promise to treat it more respectfully! :)

    Super cute purse. One time (while living in Idaho, eastern people won’t even know what this is or why it is yucky) I put my hand in my coat (which was white) and it came out covered in fry sauce. Gross!!

    Elizabeth says:

    Heather says:

    well, there have been diapers (used) in my bag before…but I think the grossest was my son’s umbilical cord stump (it fell off and I didn’t have anyplace to put it!).

    I love the Wonderland fabrics, they make a nice bag! I have three kids four and under, so odds are good there’s always something gross in there – curdled milk sippy, dirty diaper, melted fruit snacks. i promise NOT to let them near this if I win!

    CABean03 says:

    Right before we left for our trip I cleaned out my bag and oh it was gross…the bottom was full of crumbs from crackers, muffins and cookies that I’ve saved from my Mom’s Group snack to share with Myles. Please don’t judge me! :)

  298. 298
    Gretchen says:

    Totally cute! And, lately the funniest thing in my purse is a whole lot of straight pins my girls gathered up off the floor and shelves of a local craft store. How, and why, they ended up in my purse, I will never know.

    Love it! Well my daughter puts things in my purse all the time. Last week I went to pay for something and found jigsaw puzzle pieces, a faerie wand, a stuffed panda bear, and a piece of candy she apparently didn’t like, spit out, and put it in my purse.

    murbeck says:

    oh WOW, what a lovely purse. I’d be PROUD owner if I win!

    I always have something strange in my purse. atm, I can find a bag of low-fat microwave popcorn (not popped, of course), another purse, deoderant. Once, when we went bowling and bought a pitcher of beer, the guys were astonished when they turned around and I had stickers labled with each of our names on all our cups! LOL

    Your bag would be lovely with the above mentioned items in it. Give it to me and I’ll take a picture and you’ll see just how lovely it will be!

    I love wonderland… and so how could I not love this bag!!!

    I haven’t really found anything gross in a bag… I don’t carry gross stuff in my bags and I don’t usually check what others carry in theirs. But I can tell you the grossest thing I’ve ever found in a book. I work in a library, and I do collect stuff I find in books (bookmarks, tickets, handwritten notes), but I did not keep the CIGARETTE BUTT I found in a novel once… Eugh…

    Lisa says:

    I love the bag! As for random things in my current bag, I guess I would have to say it’s the fact that I have an umbrella in there which wouldn’t be random but for the fact that I live in Tucson where it hardly ever rains LOL!

    That's such a lovely bag!!

    The worst thing that's happened to my handbag lately is that I had a piece of low-fat carrot cake wrapped up in kitchen towel & forgot it was there. It ended up crumbling & getting everywhere – I'm still finding crumbs in amongst the other random junk I've got in there!

    The most gross thing I found in my purse was a plastic creamer from a resturant that had popped in an outside pocket. I knew I smelled something funny and went looking for it. Good thing my purse had plastic pockets.

    Lara says:

    Me and this purse are BFFS!!! I adore this bag…Momo is a GORGEOUS line!! This came out SOOO nice! The grossest thing in my purse? Probably gum (in a wrapper, but chewed) that one of my kids handed me…usually I try to keep it clean but I recently cleaned out the 2 purses I’ve been using and found 3 toy airplanes, some mints from a restaurant, a small Disney princess, lots of pens, chapstick galore (yay!), and a tangerine.

    First of all I LOVE wonderland!
    Random gross thing in my purse? Okay Tampons that have been in the bottom of my purse so long that they are half open and the cotton part is “dusting” the lining of my bag!!! It is super embarrassing when my 18 month old is digging through my bag at the checkout lane and pulls one of those out and hands them to me. I think I really should clean it out and toss them! LOL

    Beautiful bag! Love the Wonderland fabrics. I’m sure I’ve had lots of gross stuff in my purse, but specifics aren’t currently coming to mind. Last night as I was rifling through my purse looking for the camera and cell phone, I did come across no less than 5 hot wheel cars, three different sized diapers, container of wipes and two jars of baby food.

    Love the scripture case tutorial a few posts down! Thanks for sharing all your talents with everyone!

    Mel Cordell says:

    Ooooh I really need a new bag, and this one looks just perfect!!
    The yuckiest thing I have ever found in my bag are the uneaten legs of a shortbread man LOL Not exactly yucky, but not something you want sitting in the bottom of your bag, I hate crumbs!! The perks of having beautiful children hey :D

    Lovely bag.. The most gross thing in a purse was not in my purse but I was gorssed out. I had gone shopping with a Aunt. She went to pay and pulled out of her purse her false teeth, layed them on the counter and kept digging for her wallet. Yep she kept them in her purse. I was 17 and it was gross.
    I really don’t find gross stuff in my bag. I clean mine out after each big shopping trip.

    Grossest thing ever found in my purse ? Wasn’t my purse but my bookbag when I was in elementry School. I forgot a banana that I had put in the front pocket along w/ some slime…the slime melted and the banana got old…. you get the drift right ? It was GROSS !!!

    The grossest thing I had in my purse was a wet diaper… I had to change baby’s diaper on a hike but couldn’t find a garbage can so I had to carry it in my purse until I found one. At least it was only wet :) lol

    I eyed this bag when you made it… I love it. I just love it. Oh I know we would love each other if I won!!!!

    Well here is my story… as a mom with a child who still needs a diaper bag I have just given up on having a separate purse instead I just use the diaper bag. Well my daughter loves to go through EVERYTHING in the bathroom when I am trying to get ready. Well she LOVES playing with tampons – yea I find them everywhere – especially the diaper bag (purse). Some still in the wrappers and some well in just pieces. yea so not cool when you don’t know they are in there!

    Oh and wouldn’t this bag so be a great purse/diaper bag. I think so.

    This is a gross one: I remembered that we picked up some fresh pears at the market to take as a snack to a playgroup. Another mom had a different snack that the girls wanted to eat instead so I forgot to take the pears out of our bag. We meet once a month, so at the next meeting we found them in our bag. SO DISGUSTING! Liquefied and rotted!

    MamaG says:

    Absolutely LOVE this bag! So having little boys, they are always playing, right? Well my oldest was eating some sort of chocolate and gave it to me to hold while he went back to play…needless to say, I completely forgot about it and stuck my hand in my pocket later on only to have my hand come out COVERED in melted chocolate…yeesh! That never came out…

    Very nice bag! we have minties at work (they are like a hard, but chewy mint candy type thing, if you don’t have those in the U.S) on the counter, and I am always putting some in my bag to take home, and I always find them all soft at the bottom of my bag, all old and very gross! I guess I should stop taking them home!

    The bag is so darling! Today I found a Milky Way from Halloween (hopefully the most recent one) in my pocket, Teaberry gum from years ago in my purse along with an empty pillbox that has the Wicked Witch on top saying “All in time my pretty-all in good time.” That’s just today.
    The gross thing was in my bathroom drawer- the toothpaste from my husband’s uncovered tube that had dribbled onto my brush and I didn’t see till I had already brushed my bangs. Yuck.

No joke!! lol, she loves going shopping, and Julie from the pet blog even sent me a bag just for Buffy (my Bluetongue Lizard) to go shopping in! lol Cool huh? You’d love her though, everybody does!

    The grossest thing I ever found in my purse was from one of my cats. We had “borrower” cats. They would take something of yours and leave something of theirs. One of them took my house keys, and left me a chewed up fuzzy cat ball toy. When I reached into my purse, eewww!
    Then I had to figure out what was missing :)

    What a great bag. Please enter me in your drawing.

    Growing up on a ranch with lots of animals has always been an adventure. The grossest was a present from my little hunter kitty – a gopher head. She always like to present us with trophies and even better if she could stash them somewhere. Needless to say, I started hanging up my bag instead of leaving it on the floor by my chair.

    Thank you!

    Anna Fogg says:

    Before I was a mom of 7 homeschooled kids and a wife to a carpenter, I had snakes…most people are so scared of snakes – I found that to be true, and didn’t usually allow them in public places…when I would go to visit my teenage brother (who had a spinal injury and was paralyzed) in various rehab hospitals, I had to have a way to get Fudge, my Burmese Python, in with me to visit. Fudge, even at 5 feet, would fit just fine in her knotted pillowcase in my bag. That’s definitely the most random thing/creature I’ve ever had in a bag. She was never discovered by the nurses. Can you imagine the devilish little grin I had on my face as I walked in knowing that in their wildest dreams, they’d never guess that big ol’ fat snake was coiled in my bag. Good thing I carry big bags!!
    Love your blog and your music. I play it at night when hubby and I are relaxing quietly and lately been cutting out to it in my studio.

Just last week i had a few M & Ms melt in my pocket, which isnt all that unusual, but my cell phone was in the same pocket and I lot the charger cover thingy, so that night I was gently coersing chocolate out of the hole so I could charge my phone….and avoid telling my husband that I ruined my phone. All is well. Thanks

    What a fabulous bag!
    One time in church, while looking for a tissue to wipe my 2 year old’s nose, I found one half of a licked Oreo cookie in my purse. It had obviously been put in my purse still wet from the licking because you could see the icing smeared on the cookie and little bits of tissue stuck to it. Of course no one owned up to sticking the licked cookie in my purse and I know it wasn’t me!

    Hello Amy…love the new haircut btw!

    Let’s see.. the most gross thing I ever found in my purse??? Ewwww…I know a good one.

    When I was 21 years old I was pregnant w/ twin girls. I had to go in to the hosp. every week (and later twice a week) for checkups…you all know the drill. I had to take urine samples that I would ‘capture’ first thing in the the container went in my purse to carry.

    Guess what??? The container leaked. So ’nuff said, right? LOL

    Plz. enter me in your giveaway. I adore that bag! You’re very talented Amy.

    Wow, your bag is REALLY nice!

    I won’t tell you what the grossest thing I ever found in my purse was…but…

    Even though my kids are grown, at a bridal shower last year I won the purse game by carrying the most items named on the master list. I had an umbrella, an address book, granola bars, sunglasses, medication for allergies, blah blah blah. I mean, I even had SALT in my purse. And you know what happens when those salt packets get a little worn…they spill salt and get really messy! (I don’t do that anymore, but it sure comes in handy sometimes!)


  403. 403
    Lisa says:

    Wow! That is a great bag…and a perfect place to transfer all of the “garbage” in my current bag. Does everyone else do this? It seems like I just move a pile of crap I don’t really need from one purse to another. Probably the grossest thing(s) in my bag right now include, week old cheese cubes still in the snack container, used baby wipes containing unwanted snacks and one melted lipstick that gets on everything.

    Hmm…maybe I don’t deserve such a pretty bag.

    everyday inspirations says:

    Random, gross AND funny. Standing in church with my purse over my shoulder and could feel the kid behind me digging in it. Now, you don’t want to think the worst at church…but…I checked for my wallet and found…ready for this? A wad of about 8 gumballs, all chewed and slobbered…in the palm of my hand. TRY to keep a straight face after finding that treasure. Yikes!

    LOVE the fabrics in this bag – you are so talented! Thanks for the opp!

    #2-OK, this is really disgusting but I will tell you anyway–I am currently nursing my 6 month old son and I’m sure some of you know where this is going…I found an old nursing pad (3-4 days) full of milk molding to the bottom of my bag-it was green and blue! Ha! So I really need this bag because the mold is not coming out when I wash it!! OK enough confessions…

    such a lovely bag… I was *unpleasantly* suprised to find an OLD sippy cup in the bottom of my purse last week – curdled milk – yuk!

    Sharon says:

    Holy cow! I am the 418th post? Good for you!

    Grossest thing ever found in my bag? Gotta be a sippy cup with curdling milk.

    Love this bag. The most gross thing that I ever found in my purse was a minigo yogurt that I had quickly thrown in my purse for a snack for my daughter. When I reached in to get it out it had exploded inside my bag. I was very distraught if you can imagine. Well, that purse didn’t survive. I had to get a new one. So sad..yeah right. lol

    I wonder why you are opening yourself up to all the amazingly gross possibilities this post is asking for…but I think an old mushed up banana was just about the worst! Yes, it happened to me!

    My mom is the queen, though, she’ll often find things like the morning’s cereal bowls or an extra set of flip flops, or an entire meal in there. For my bridal shower the host played a game in which we all got points for all the strange things we had in our purse…she had, like baby food, a desk’s set of pens, a thousand credit cards, dvd’s…and so much more. I’m sure you can imagine.

    I started carrying a little pocketknife in my pocket years ago. The mini scissors and tweezers often come in handy. But, it’s not much of a girly item to carry, and when I pulled it out in college to assist in making something for a group project, the guys were all astounded that I had such a thing.

    hummmmmmmmm i believe the grossest is the undefineable lump that comes from something a little sticky..with something crumbly..a little furry..a wad of paper..a little left over granola extra piece of gum attached to that left over stamp etc… :)

    Sara says:

    Carla says:

    Goodness that bag is pretty! Look at all your comments! Well, I would have to say the worst was when a cap came off the hand lotion and it was all over everything in the bottom of the bag. Pretty gross to stick your hand into.

    Simply precious! It would be wonderful to show off and then tell everyone about your site! I can’t think of anything ‘gross’, but most embarrassing was a bunch of matchbox cars of my boys left in there when I went through security at the courthouse for jury duty! Maybe they thought that’s what I brought to pass the time!

  444. 444
    Chelle says:

    Gorgeous purse!

    The grossest thing? Had to be when I had a diet coke in my bag. Somehow a little spilled. I didn’t think much of it…I cleaned it up and took my wallet out to dry off a little. (honestly it was hardly anything that spilled!). However, a few days later my husband was packing it up with diapers, etc for our daughter and something brown, soggy and crumbly was all over his hand.

    No worries :) It was just a chips ahoy from one of the 100 calorie packs–I guess I didn’t get everything that got wet! Hehe :)

    Thanks for an amazing giveaway–and I love your new haircut!! It looks really good!

    Well after I took a look in there. I found some smashed melted jr. mints sans box.

    brown robin says:

    Oh! I do believe this is my favorite item up for giveaway. It’s exqusite! The grossest thing I’ve found is an old bannana… peeeled and smushed… that my sweet two year old stuck there… probably days before but it took me that long to notice!

    A Joyful Chaos says:

    The biggest mess I ever had in my purse was when my toddler unbeknownst to me unwrapped a bag full of Hershey Kisses and put them in my purse they in turn melted over everything. Had one huge Chocolate coated peanut cluster, but instead of peanuts there were pens, loose change and all the other stuff that finds its way into my purse. Gross.

  451. 451
    Emily says:

    So pretty! I’d love to win! Thanks for the chance. Worst thing I’ve ever found in my purse… that’s got to be on Sunday nights when I realize I’ve forgotten my Friday lunch dishes in my work bag! Eww!

  452. 452
    lalepop says:

    Great bag! I would love to win it!

    Since having kids, I’ve found plenty of disgusting stuff and strange stuff in my purse! The most random… this past week I found one baby sock. Just one.

    Gorgeous purse!

    Something horrible in my purse–well, it was horrible at the time. I was in sixth grade and ruffling through some stuff, when I pulled out a maxi pad without realizing it and laid it on the lunch table! Half the girls had never seen one before, and the boys nearby even noticed. I was mortified! Thanks for the memories, hehe. ;)

    wonderful purse. wonderful fabric. Thanks. with four children you can bet I found wierd things in my purse, but the cheese knife would have to be the funniest. My daughter put it in their after cheese and crackers one night…fun!!!

    Tipper says:

    Karen says:

    I love the bag!! Well I have not had anything very gross in any of my bags. But I made my grown daughters bags crocheted out of recycled shopping bags last year and the middle had it sitting in her car and while driving one of her 4 boys was not feeling well and got ill in it. I think that would be considered gross. Thanks for the chance to win! Your music is also the best!

    Megan says:

    Just recently, I found myself impaled on the business end of a paper parasol (like from a Chinese restaurant) that my friend suggested I keep from my drink…

    I’d be proud to carry this bag – and hand out your business cards too!

    Thanks for the opportunity — Megan

    What a gorgeous bag! Once I left a wrapped piece of chocolate in my purse pocket and the proceeded to completely forget about it. A couple of weeks later I reached into the pocket to the messiest, meltiest, disaster. To make matters worse, I was at a store check-out and had nothing to wipe the chocolate goo off my hands. Really traumatizing! :)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Jody says:

    So cute! Oddest purse item … for years and years I carried a crib screw in my purse … long after the crib was gone. There was no reason for it to be there, it just was. I have nothing too strange in my purse these days, the oddest item is probably a tweezers because I have no idea how it got there.

    Libby says:

    Live goldfish. I had gone fish shopping and they were in a plastic bag and it was a hot day and so I didn’t want to leave them in my car when I had to go into the library for a bit.

    Well, something broke the bag. I noticed when my purse started dripping.

    The fish were swimming in my purse.

  476. 476
    Ali says:

    I have too many things in my bag. A mini thing of PlayDoh, bandaids, tylenol, crayons, are those uncommon or normal? I did have a half eaten protein bar melt in there last week. I can’t believe I forgot it was in my purse!
    Thanks for offering such a great giveaway and if I win, I promise not to let anything melt in the bag :)

    Oh Amy, can I play? You know I love Wonderland. In my handbag – a Lego Darth Vader figure with a note from my son stickey taped to him that says :

    “I do not need a tray. I am Darth Vader, lord of this space station.”

    (If you don’t know what that’s about, go to uTube and search for Darth Vader Cafeteria and laugh your head off.)

    I don't know if I've ever found anything really gross in my purse. However, I have an active 2-year old boy and with his interest in the worms and snakes he finds in our garden, I'm thinking my day might be coming! Beautiful bag & I have no idea how you accomplish all that you do with 4 kids.

    What a beautiful purse…I love it!

    Let’s see my purse is mess.It’s not that big but i’ve managed to fit half a drugstore inside of it along with some beach sand and a menu from a cafe.

    Thanks for the comtest!

    Lil' Bit Sassy says:

    I don’t really have a story of anything gross in my purse since I’m somewhat of a neat freak, but I remember one time I left a lipstick in my jeans pocket and washed it with the clothes. Honey didn’t appreciate red spots all over his tighty whities lol.

    Ilona says:

    What a great, colorful bag is this! Love it :)
    Once in church on of my boys didn’t like a candy he got, and spit it out in a paper hanky, which I put in my purse. Forgot to take it out when I got home, and the other day I searched for my keys and found this little treasure… yuck!

  486. 486

    Amanda says:

    Love Wonderland, and love that purse! Random stuff in my purse? Well, I always laugh at the baby items I find in my purse. Random cheerios, spare underwear (for the kids, not me!), dirty cloth nose wipes (ick!) and perhaps a toothbrush. LOL.

    Mary says:

    Beautiful purse! I can’t believe you are giving this away! I found a moldy muffin in my bag the other day, it was pretty gross!

    Tee says:

    I love your bag! This is gross, just funny/sweet…when my twins were babies they were always kicking off their little socks or booties. I always had random socks in my purse (and back pockets) I would go to pay for something and all of these socks would come tumbling out. Now I just find their socks everywhere but in their sock drawers! Thanks for the chance to win.

    Laura says:

    Beautiful purse and a wonderful design. I’ve just started quilting and am into all things sewn right now. My brother says that in order to be a “real woman” you have to carry a purse big enough for a roll of duct tape. Well, instead of that, I carry two purses. One is a large purse separated into two big compartments- one for diapers, wipes, and hand sanitizer. The other is for crayons, paper, snacks and other misc kid things. Then my purse is about 3.5″ x 5″ and holds my wallet, my “kid wallet” (with their insurance cards and birthday money). I can’t really even fit a pen into that purse!
    I love your blog and have just subscribed. Your hair cut is perfect for your face shape. :)

    I actually had this conversation with a friend today-I found a receipt from three years ago! What?! I think I need a new purse! Good thing I've entered like 1000 of these giveaways. I've got to win one, right?

    Seriously, I love that wonderland fabric and hope I win. Are you flattered yet? 493 comments is one of the highest numbers I've seen!!

    I will cross my fingers and hope the random generator likes especially high numbers! (if that's how you choose)

    Thank you for the chance to win the wonderful bag, it is beautiful.
    The best thing I ever found in my purse was about $50 in a pocket I had forgotten about!

    This is my last giveaway post of the night. My computer is locking up – UGH.

    I wanted to mention that I loved looking at all the handmade creations for this Giveaway. It has gotten me thinking about what I could start to make and sell.

    Stacy says:

    What an awesome bag! The grossest thing I just dug out of my bag was a wad of wet used tissues used to clean up my son’t extra runny snotty nose. That was gross.

    I love the bag. I won’t tell you the weirdest thing in my purse. However, I will tell you that it made me scream really loud in a department store when I reached in to get by billfold to pay for my purchase. The lady behind the counter screamed, too! You really don’t want to know what it was. Believe me.

    marcela says:

    The most random…. I’ll go for gross… one of my kids still wears a diaper. So sometimes, in those days that I forget to take everything out of the backpack/purse I’d find a dirty diaper (wrapped in a plastic bag!!!) but not really nice surprise. Looking forward to no diaper days and small bags or purses!

    For this bag…. it’s for mama! :-) so very beautiful. thanks for sharing.
