Designs by Emma: Christmas Giveaway & Reader Offer!

If you are after the perfect, practical and pretty gift for a loved one (or yourself) this Christmas then look no further! Designs by Emma make the most stunning range of plastic coated bags. These can be customised to suit your, or your recipients, tastes by selecting from the most gorgeous (and extensive) range of fabrics you have laid your eyes on!
If you don't quite see a fabric you love (which would shock me), let Emma know what you might have in mind and she is more than happy to suggest or source something to suit.

I was so lucky to be on the receiving end of one of Emma's divine creations and I have to say this bag has seen it all!

From playdates and park dates, to swimming lessons, the gym and as a nappy bag - this bag is perfect for the busy Mum always on the go!
I was sent the large size bag which retails at $65.00. It has two interior pockets sewn in, which are SO handy for finding keys wallets and phones in a hurry. The above pic shows the bag loaded up with 3 regular sized beach towels just to show you just how much room is left - oodles of space!
And that fabric... I'd say with mint, pink and gold glitter polka dots, Emma nailed my bag in one wouldn't you?!

It is so pretty.
This sized bag really is a great all rounder, however if you are after something smaller (or bigger), Emma has so many different sizes in the range. You can also grab a small kids sized bag, a makeup bag and even a nappy bag with change mat in her range too. There really is a size and fabric to suit absolutely everyone!
