Hi! My name is Patty Reali, and I have an Etsy shop named "Made by Pade." The name comes from a nickname I accrued in college - one of my roommates had a younger sister who was in first grade and wrote her a really cute letter. It read, "Howdy dude Torri (My roommate)! Hows life at the aprtmt (apartment) and how is it with Vike (Vicki - other roommate) and Pade (me!)?" To my college friends, I have been "Pade" ever since. So, when I started my Etsy site, this seemed the perfect name!
I have loved creating things for as long as I can remember. My parents taught me to sew when I was very young, and I spent some time making counted cross-stitch and other hand-stitched items. My crafting went dormant for a while in high school, but in college I took up knitting and also hand-sewed my first quilt! (Still have it - it's a bit of a mess, but has lots of sentimental value.)
On my site, you will find a collection of purses, zipper pouches, hand crocheted shawls and scarves as well as several other hand-crafted items. I hope you enjoy checking them out, and one lucky winner will get to choose his or her favorite crossbody bag!
How to Enter:
Jane here. Usually when I host giveaways you are only allowed to enter once. This time, you can enter twice...
one entry if you you check out her Etsy store here and come back to tell us in the comments which is your favorite item...
one entry if you like her facebook page here (and tell us in the comments that you did)
you can just choose one of these for one entry:-).
I (Jane) will randomly choose one winner sometime this coming Friday and announce it here. Make sure to leave your first name or initials so I can identify you as winner. If you win, you will need to email me so I can pass your contact information and crossbody bag choice to Patty. Happy entering!
Best of luck to all!
