(Closed) Celebrate Mother's Day ~ Yvonne Totes Review and Giveaway Ends 5/7

What's more awesome than featuring products from a Mother-Daughter business for Mother's Day? Yvonne Totes carries a collection of fun and useful totes, purses, pouches, bags and more. With more than 20 years of industrial sewing experience, you'll love the quality materials and fun designs of their products.

For this review, Yvonne Totes sent me a Pouch in the Blue Spiral design.
First off, how darling is the print on this material?! It's a little hard to tell in the photo, but even the cream colored background has a swirling pattern. It almost has a vintage feel to it! The material is heavy and very nice. It feels like it will hold up well too.

At a size of 7" x 3.5", this little pouch has a lot of great uses. How about a soft sunglasses holder? Maybe coupons or receipts? Lipstick and a compact mirror would work great! Buddy tried to put his cars in it a few times too! :) 

The inside is lined with a light grey cotton, and the closure is a velcro circle on the flap and front of the pouch. I think as long as the pouch contents aren't heavy, the velcro should hold just fine. 

The pouch is professionally sewn but I'm just a bit concerned that only the back side of the pouch is lined. The lining is left open at the bottom so small items may get lost between the lining and outside materials. Although easily retrievable, I think it would be nice to find a way to line the entire inside of the pouch and still keep the design simple enough to easily sew and turn right side out again. It's still super cute though and very affordable!

Price: Pouches from Yvonne Totes are only $4.50 and include FREE shipping!

The Verdict: Cute design, very affordable, and adorable high quality fabric is used. Overall, I'm very excited for Yvonne Totes and hope they continue to grow!
