MakeMeOver Halloween Tote Review {and GIVEAWAY}

**CONTEST CLOSED**
MakeMeOver is a shop run from Minneapoliis, MN, where you'll find a little bit of everything that can be sewn or embroidered.  Lori, the owner/designer, has been sewing for 36 years.  In addition to completely new items, she also searches estate sales for vintage fabrics and old materials that she can make into something new.  How cool is that?

Lori sprecializes in making fun Walker Bags, which is a result of close to 20 years working with the elderly at various healthcare facilities. The Walker Bags are designed to assist someone in maintaining their independence and brighten their day.  What a wonderful idea, and a great gift for the older gentleman or lady in your life.


Lori sent us the Dancing Skeletons Halloween Tote, which is great for trick or treating.  This year we're going to be using this as a tote for Emma's toys.  We do a lot of day trips to Family Members' homes and need to bring toys along to keep her entertained.  I was surprised at how much I was able to fit into this bag, so surprised that I'm including a photo to give you an idea--and there was still room for more! It is fully lined and double-stiched which makes for a well made tote.  What I love the most?  It's reversible, so I won't look like a weirdo carrying this around after the Halloween season is long gone!  :)

BUY IT!  Mention The Penny-Pinching Mama Blog and get 10% off your purchases!  Send Lori a convo before placing your order so that she can reserve your listing(s) at the reduced price.

WIN IT!  One lucky reader will receive a Swimming Fish tote, as pictured below!

  12. I like Moon and Stars Halloween Girls Handbag Purse or Small Gift Bag and Wilendur Yellow Princess Rose Vintage Tablecloth Tote or Gift Bag. The moon and stars is the same cloth I made a pillow with the first and last time I ever sewed anything. Except the background was blue, not black, and the stars and moons were yellow, not orange. Otherwise it's the same! Ah, nostalgia.
