Love In Every Thread GIVEAWAY


Last week Benjamin and I finally ventured down to check out our apartment pool. Remember me mentioning constant rain? Not five minutes into our swim and it came pouring down. I have never been more thankful for a good, water resistant beach/pool bag as I was right then! We plan on taking many trips to the pool, splash park, and beach this Summer so I'm really glad that we have such a high quality bag to put our belongings in. 

Last Fall my mom gifted me a beautiful, handmade, custom diaper bag at my baby shower in California. Ever since then my sister, Aimee, and I have been encouraging her to open her own Etsy shop. Then, when Benjamin and I were visiting in May, I saw the super cute beach (wet) bag that she had made for my sister and nephew to use for swim class. Not only did I have to have one but she had to start selling them and in different sizes too. Just in time for Summer she has opened her new Etsy shop, Love In Every Thread.
We have a zippered wet bag as well, which is perfect to throw in the car or diaper bag for those unfortunate blowouts. This "small" size is more than big enough to fit a spare outfit, travel wipes, and a couple extra diapers in case of an emergency. I use mine in my larger pool bag for my keys and cell phone but she has since started making these cell phone pouches. I like these because they can snap around the handles of the larger bag without getting lost and definitely plan on buying one soon.

Lisa describes the XL bags in her own words:
"This 20 x 16 bag easily holds two beach towels and swim suits. The inside layer of terry cloth makes the bag super absorbent and the outside PUL layer makes it waterproof. The bag is machine washable and dry-able, so no musty smells like traditional beach bags!

All seams are finished and reinforced. Eyelets provide a smooth route for the drawstring cord. I've included a cord stopper so the cord won't get lost inside the bag! NEW key strap sewn into each bag. Mix and match with our NEW water resistant cell phone pouch, too (sold separately)!"

I can definitely attest to what this bag can hold. In our bag was: a towel, water bottle, several diapers, sunblock, an extra outfit for the baby and myself, a big bag of pool toys, and the zipper wet bag that I used as a waterproof purse.
 The fabric prints that she uses couldn't be any cuter! Details:
She gifted Benjamin his pool bag but I've already purchased several for friends. I'm so excited that she's agreed to GIVEAWAY one of these great bags to a Love, Joleen reader! (This will kick off a slue of awesome giveaways I have lined up this Summer!) She's selected this adorable unisex owl print to giveaway and there are several ways to enter! A winner will be announced on Friday, July 5th. Good luck!
