"TheStraightStitch" Enviro Lunch Bags Giveaway!

*Giveaway Closed*

When it comes to ways to save money, cutting back on waste and reusing what you have, The Straight Stitch is one of the first shops you want to visit! TheStraightStitch uses unique, vintage and reclaimed fabrics, to make practical items that you use everyday.
TheStraightStitch's amazing line of enviro lunch bags was what first caught my eye! But I just love all of her products!

The Enviro-Wraps are great for anyone who likes to wrap their sandwiches! As easy as cling wrap and much prettier! You can clean it easy and use it over and over again! No more buying cling wrap and throwing it away!
I just love the Cutlery Wraps! These look so vintage and would love them for my table! They would be so great for serving guest! And for giving as gifts! TheStraightStitch has some new cutlery wraps that look so fresh and pretty for spring and summer and great for children's silverware too!

If you are a mom or dad, you will know how important it is to have those old grocery bags handy when you are out and about, out playing at the swimming pool or river, have an accident and all the wet/soiled clothing has to come off! Well, how about not having to worry about the plastic grocery bags? TheStraightStitch has completely waterproof wet bags! These look Great! I love the idea of not having to use so many plastic bags and being able to wash the bag with the wet/soiled clothes!


I was able to review the great and unique Enviro Lunch bag sets! I just love mine and so do my children! These are great for packing your favorite healthy snacks and sandwiches, easily washable and the velcro holds tight to keep the food secure in the bag.

Besides the design of bags that I got (blue with fruit on them!), I like the pink camo, Safari, and Hula enviro lunch bags sets!


Meet Our Featured Etsy store and Owner!
Here is what the owner of TheStraightStitch shared with us about her and her store:

What inspired the name of your Etsy store?
"The Etsy store was named out of a love of simplicity and functionality. I wanted a name that said "no-nonsense, just good quality functional baby gear". By keeping things simple I am able to keep my prices low.

What insipred you to open your Etsy store?
I started my Etsy store when friends and family started asking me to make them versions of things I had made for my own children. I realized, if they liked and wanted to buy the things that I had made, other might want to as well.

Would you like to share a little bit about yourself?
I am an enthusiastic outdoors lover, a lover of all things handmade and, while I wouldn't call myself crafty, others might! I've been at home full time with my 2 hilarious girls for 4 years now, neither of them is in school yet so I do all of my work at nap/after bedtime.

Anything else you would like to share with us?
I have a strong commitment to the environment and try to base the business around that. My products are designed as plastic alternatives, and alternatives to the disposable lifestyle, but I also work a lot with reclaimed and upcycled materials. In that way, I am able to breathe new life into items that are no longer useful. In addition to this, by creating everyday items in Canada and providing them at a low cost, I am able to provide consumers with alternatives to big box stores and overseas manufacturing.

By buying handmade, you are saying NO to sweatshop labor and to the pollution that is created shipping goods from overseas manufacturers to big box stores. You are opting out of plastic over-packaging and saying yes to to a more sustainable lifestyle.

All of the products I make have come out of things that I have made to fill our family needs. Everything that you see for sale has first been tested by me and my family, and then our friends."

  1. If I were lucky enough to win your Straight Stitch give away I would LOVE to give her "Hip" enviro bags a home.. Stef made some of her products in that fabric for me to give as gifts, and it was very hard to part with them!!

    I have been a loyal customer of the Straight Stitch for a year or two now and have never been anything but thrilled to see her beautiful projects arrive in my mailbox.. and my friends have all been equally pleased to open them as gifts!!!

    Thanks for profiling a very worthy, hardworking and smart entrepreneurial mother!!
