cotton drawstring bags from State Line

State Line Bag Co. recently sent several Craft Gossip editors a few of their cotton drawstring bags to try. I received three that are the perfect size to use as a travel pouch to hold jewelry — or a new beading project you want to take on the go.

Laliberi jewelry components and bead for givewaway

I had a few goodies from EK Success Brands left over from our first Fork and Talk event that I thought would be perfect tucked inside these durable little bags. A recent weekend trip to the beach had me in a surf-filled state of mind, so I also threw in some shell beads and some beads made from grass.

To decorate the bags, I stamped them with travel inspired images and filled them with goodies. Now you can win one of these bags along with a smaller sized bag from State Line that you can decorate.

  13. DeeAnn S on August 27, 2012 5:07 am

    My favorite travel destination is to the beaches of New Jersey. There’s so much to see and do. And hearing the ocean clears my mind and helps me center myself. Love it. Thanks.

  14. Shari Harniss on August 27, 2012 5:12 am

    Florida. Any beach. Lots of cold water. And a bag for shells!

  15. Angela F on August 27, 2012 7:31 am

    My favorite travel destination is Florida, home. Love the laid back pace, especially that of those small coastal towns. I really like what you did with the bags, and thank you for the introduction to stateline bags.

  16. Shawna S. on August 27, 2012 7:37 am

    My favorite destination would be Ireland. Went there last year and loved it. I’m saving up to go back.

  17. JaanL on August 27, 2012 8:14 am

    HOME! We travel, alot, and when we do get the chance to take a break. No place is better than home. Know that sounds corny, but when you are rarely there, its the best place to go on holiday.

  18. Pam on August 27, 2012 9:47 am

    Calif. to see my kids and grandson.

  19. Sandy~Turtlelady~Sellers on August 27, 2012 10:21 am

    I have so many uses for this give a way. TY so much for offering :)

  20. CathyM on August 27, 2012 11:01 am

    I’ve had many wonderful trips to other countries, and to cities in the USA. I’d be happy to return to just about any of them. In the US, I love to visit Chicago. But, of all the places I’ve been, I long to return to Paris the most. Last time I was there I found a wonderful bead shop. Love these bags as a gift idea!! Even printing designs on the bags looks like a fun craft idea.

  21. Craftylady on August 27, 2012 12:39 pm

    My favorite vacation destination would have to be in FL. That is where my Gchildren from my youngest son live.

  22. Melinda Gore on August 27, 2012 1:38 pm

    Houston Texas or Disney!!! Woot!

  25. Charlotte on August 27, 2012 8:39 pm

    Favorite travel destination? I have to go with “any New England or Maritime province beach.” Sand, driftwood, too many rocks, mussel shells, grey water, grey skies… *sigh*. Hard to explain the appeal of it, but it makes my heart sing.

  26. Dennis on August 27, 2012 9:39 pm

    Right now I would call any place a good spot if I can get there without a lot of pain. My back is giving me fits again and the pills are not working. If you have back problems then you know what I mean. You did a great job with the bags. Thanks for the giveaway, lots of luck to every one.

  27. Lori Morton on August 28, 2012 5:08 am

    We are planning a trip to New Hampshire now! Soooo excited….have never been there…..and we are going with dear Friends! Wooohoooo! :)

  30. Carolyn on August 28, 2012 6:12 am

    Anywhere I am traveling at the moment is my favorite destination. After all it really is not the destination, its the journey that makes any travel noteworthy!

  31. Shaiha on August 28, 2012 10:13 am

    My favorite destination is Cannon Beach, Or.

  32. Lauren aka Giddy99 on August 28, 2012 11:43 am

    I always love traveling to the Southwest (US). The desert feels like an exotic place to me (I grew up in the humid, lush South), and I love the dryness of it.

  33. Nancy on August 28, 2012 11:52 am

    These bags are so cute! I love going to any woodsy-mountain area. There is just something about the clean, fresh smell of the air and the beauty of the tress that automatically lowers my blood pressure. I think I need to move to a place like that. Who knows, maybe I wouldn’t have a need for doctors anymore :)

  34. Lee on August 28, 2012 3:14 pm

    I love Pictured Rocks National Seashore in Michigan! thank you!

  35. Chris on August 28, 2012 3:15 pm

    I really love the beauty of Kentucky!

  36. Mary D on August 28, 2012 9:35 pm

    I love the desert, and the mountains. So, New Mexico, Arizona, and California fit the bill for me.

  37. Christina on August 29, 2012 1:38 am

    My favorite travel destination is Budapest. I love it there!

  38. Thadra Morrow on August 30, 2012 8:20 am

    Hawaii or Bermuda

  42. Lori on August 31, 2012 11:17 am

    I love to go to Devils Den State Park in Arkansas, I am very much into decorating with natural materials and can always find beautiful leaves, rocks, twigs and vines to use in crafting and decor.

  43. Jennifer on September 1, 2012 4:39 pm

    I have two favorites, so will mention one–the charming Victorian town of Ouray, Colorado and its hot springs, looming mountains, and mostly its grand Victorian homes.
