Giveaway Day !!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm taking part in Giveaway Day (May 27th), which is being run by the lovely Sew Mama Sew. Today I will be giving away a Little Red Riding Hood coin purse. It is big enough to hold credit cards, drivers licence, and business cards, and small enough to fit in your pocket. It is lined with matching red felt, and finished off with a white zip. You can also use it to store jewellery in safely when travelling. I have larger sizes available, which I will be bringing to the BrisStyle Indie Designer's Market in July (check out the BrisStyle blog for more info). If you would like to be in the draw to win this purse, please leave a comment stating why you think Little Red Riding Hood is wicked by midnight on May 31st. This giveaway is open to everyone (yes I will ship both locally and internationally). Happy Giveaway Day everyone, and good luck :D Teneale

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for wondering the forest on her own...WICKED CHILD!!

Liesa

Bec said...

The red cape with the hood? Now THAT'S WICKED!!!

Jetta's Nest said...

Little Red Hood is wicked for not knowing the difference between her granny and big, hairy, stinkin' wolf, not to mention talking to strangers in the forest!

JazyJae's said...

She is wicked for teasinf the wolf with her Mum's baked goods

bubbachenille said...

Frankly I'm too old remember the story, but what the above entrants all said is true and it's slowly coming back to me ! ha

Amanda said...

Walking the forest with a basket of treats, when a hungry wolf she then did meet. No baked yummies did she share, to the emaciated wolf, she just didn't care!

Self obsessed this little wicked child had become, she ate all the goodies, all expcept one. That way her Granny would still get a treat,
but not that poor little wolf that she did meet.

No wonder the wolf went insane, no food can do that to your brain! To satisfy his belly impersonating granny was rational, but Red wouldn't think so with her belly so full.

Trudy Callan said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked because she made up this whole story about the wolf because she wanted to keep all of the treats for herself. She was a selfish child who only thought of herself and didn't even want to see her grandmother. It really ticked her off that her mom would send her on such an errand.

JULIE ♥ ADORE said...

i dont know why, but i love her:))

Sandrine said...

Must be the red hood for me;)

mickyndan said...

How cute !!!

katrina said...

Little red riding hood wasn't wicked, she was just terribly young. Ladies, we've all been chased down the garden path by a wolf at SOME point!

edward and lilly said...

The red hood is definitely the go for wickedness! Very cute purse too :)

PinkPetunias said...

love katrina's comment: "Little red riding hood wasn't wicked, she was just terribly young. Ladies, we've all been chased down the garden path by a wolf at SOME point!" if i cannot win, she should. i don't know if i would say she is wicked but a little strange for sure.

Whimsical Road said...

STEPHANIE. said...

just the cape makes her wicked...wiked awesome! hehe..i ovethat coin purse..those fabrics are so sweet! my neice would love it. :)

Michele said...

I would say she is more sweet (taking stuff to her sick grandmother, taking the wolf at face value) than wicked, but I do have to confess that I love wearing my red fleece hoodie.

Vicki said...

Cute! I really need something like this.

Ariel said...

I love little red...would love to win. She's wicked for entering without knocking. That's a tresspassing felony, you know.

Amy said...

She has an awesome fashion sense.

Jessica said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for not sharing her treats...could have prevented the entire story! Besides I'm sure her grams taught her to always share!

Kaye Prince said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked because she showed that mean old wolf who was boss!

Thanks for the great giveaway :D

Angi said...

In Boston "wicked" is slang for cool or awesome and Little Red is wicked awesome for being sassy and fashion forward in her hood.

Shannon Hillinger said...

Because she persecuted that poor wolf for acting within his nature, and encouraged the slaughter of an endangered species!

ecky said...

she wears red hangs out with a much older crowd!

elkesten at yahoo dot com

Valerie said...

Oh she's wicked, but that just makes her interesting, roaming the woods in that saucy red cape! Wicked girl!

kate said...

if she had just shared the booty in the basket, wouldn't that have made things better?

kate(at)thecleanplateclub(dot)(net)

janet said...

thinking about little red riding hood as a coming of age story, its a bit wicked. but it's really wicked because it promotes negative stereotypes on wolves!

Grace said...

Little Red is wicked because of the hood - for certain!

This coin purse is cool!

luke and pamela said...

LRR is wicked for falling for that horrible wolf!

KitKnitty said...

So cute! Thanks for the giveaway! You can reach me at http://kitknitty.com.

LRRH is wicked, because she knows the power of a well-chosen wardrobe.

beagoodmom said...

red is the color of wicked, isn't it? thats the first clue right there.

Amy said...

little red was utterly wicked for tempting the poor, hungered wolf with her youthful health and then for having him killed after he simply (and understandably!) swallowed her and her grannie whole. animal cruelty, right? ...errr or something like that.

;p amymarie630[at]hotmail[dot]com

Christina Lowry said...

Little red riding hood is wicked for having the wolf killed! Poor little wolf!
:)

Meadow said...

She is obviously wicked for not listening to her mother!

Lucy C said...

Little Red Riding Hood is fine - but I think the wolf is wicked :)
Thanks for a great giveaway !

Kim Meier said...

Clearly it's wicked because of the AWESOME FABRIC PRINT. I am so jealous of whoever wins this..

Bronwyn said...

That is exactly what I need! V.v. cute!

Bronwyn said...

Oh I forgot to mention why R.R.H. is so wicked - well, if anyone has read Angela Carter's version of the story - she is one wicked girl I just can't mention why here.

mae said...

If by wicked you mean wicked awesome! I love little red riding hood. I want a cape just like hers-- so fashion forward!

Christy said...

Christy said...

p.s. oh i forgot...i recently blogged about little red

http://sweettidings.blogspot.com/2009/05/vintage-style-little-red.html

there's a wicked poem in there

Deb said...

I think it's because she really shouldn't have been wandering around the forest unsupervised. She must have snuck out her bedroom window!

babalisme said...

She is wicked for mistaking the wolf to her grandma!! Maybe her hood is too long, covering her eyes? Maybe her mother slips her grandma's medication on the basket and she decides to taste on or two? Maybe she knows all the way but she pretends not too to tease the poor wolf? She is ultimately wicked for making the wolf a victim!! Better then the three little pigs, I dare say.

twinklestarart said...

I think your Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for looking like the little red head in my house. Believe me, she's wicked ;)

ni said...

She is wicked for talking to strangers in the forest.

lyndyloo said...

It must be the day for Little Red -my daughter had a dress up day and went as Little Red with a twist - she had a fake can of pepper spray and a rolling pin hideen in her basket - girl power! Love Little Red and grateful to be in the draw for the purse.

One of us Dragonfryes said...

No Litle Red Riding hood was not wicked, she was sweet. I do really like your coin purse. Please enter me in your drawing.

Thanks!

Ali said...

Hi Teneale - cute pouch!
Little Miss Red was wicked for cavorting with such a big, bad wolf!

Treasuresofjoy said...

Because she talks to strangers.

Tasha said...

I think she is wicked for tempting the wolf in her pretty red hood!! lol

Elizabeth said...

little red is wicked . . . wicked cute, in that little red hood. :)

love the little purse!

Ylime said...

just what WAS in that basket?

Cassie said...

Well I guess I never thought of her as Wicked... so I don't think I can answer this question. Poor lost little girl just on her way to her grandma's house!

Thanks for doing the giveaway.

Stacy said...

Like the wicked witch (in the musical Wicked, rather than the Wizard of Oz) I'm thinking Little Red Riding Hood is misunderstood. She's a sweet young girl with good intentions but bad luck. But, then I'm a silver lining person....

Susan W said...

Oh how wonderful! Little red riding hood is wicked because she goes off on her own, ignores her instincts and gets into a heap of trouble!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

greeblygreebly said...

I think it was her mother who was wicked, sending her unattended into a wolf-habitat with a basket of goodies..why not just tie a steak around her neck and be done with it?

Dallas said...

She was wicked because her basket didn't carry food - it carried poison.

SueLovesCherries said...

Oh, it's adorable! What a great fabric!

Jennifer said...

what a great giveaway! thanks!

Courtney said...

red being the color of seduction I would think it's obvious why little red ridding hood is wicked, she hoodwinked that poor ol wolf, and then tossed him aside after playing him like a fiddle!

Leigh said...

LRRH is wicked for not being nice to poor little wolfie...

My Big Mouth said...

I love Little Red Riding Hood!
Cute fabric!
Her parents are wicked(evil) for letting such a young girl walk to grannys house in the forest like that all alone!
Sheesh!I'm such a mom!

Jaime said...

ok, your freakin' amazing! I lov your style! Super cute fabric!

I believe she has wicked bad manors!! Did she ever thank the hot woodsman for chopping her granny out of the wolf's belly?....I think not!!

little red riding hood is wicked for not just giving the wolf a small baked good in the first place. share, red, share!

laurelbug said...

She is wicked because she has a crush on the wolf and wants to do naughty things with him!

mcgillenator said...

Little Red Riding Hood is only wicked because I want that awesome little bag :)

debbiekl said...

Very cute! One of my favorite stories. Who wouldn't want to walk around in a red cape - before superheros copied her. :)

jabby7 said...

she tempted the wolf! but seriously, it's a great way to entertain my 2 restless toddlers by getting them to retell the story with the characters on the purse. :) abby

abi-gail7@hotmail.com

Elizabeth said...

If by wicked I hope you mean... WICKED AWESOME!!!

B said...

Wicked hey? How about the fact that she calming faced the big bad wolf and shows him whose boss? That's wicked enough isn't it?

Kelly O. said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for not flushing the toilet before she left the house to go to Grandmother's house.
Wicked habit!

MamáChanga said...

Hmm...Little Red Riding Hood is wicked because all that poor wolf was trying to do was get a bite to eat! LOL!!

Cute contest!

Hugs & Blessings!

Aim said...

I think it's great that she hasn't been swayed by the latest fashion trends, and she still wears that red hood with a cape.

Thanks for the giveaway, if I am the lucky winner, you can contact me through my website www.radseams.com.

Creative Arty Facts said...

....Wicked can be good! Besides, you never really know what she was wearing under that Riding Hood (my guess was it was probably sexy red ......

Kathleen said...

I remember dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood many many years ago! in an outfit my mother made for me. I wasn't at all wicked, and I guess the story didn't scare me. The wolf, however, is very wicked to everyone who meets him.
thank you,
Kathleen

Bettina Groh said...

It's time my grand daughter had an allowance and wouldn't this be a great place to put it when she "shops"?
Little Red Riding Hood is wicked because "I said so".

She's not wicked just having a bit of fun!

klaudia said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked because she had a great sense o fashion and beacuse she really cared for her grandma!
Thank you for a fun giveaway:)

Jennifer said...

Oh, she's wicked, but is so wicked she seems sweet, playing all innocent with that wolf. Otherwise, he would've eaten her right away. Being wicked totally saved her. Rock on, Red.

BettsyKingston said...

She's wicked for carrying a basket. Sure it is 'green' but really?

Paul Thompson said...

Because nothing is every wholesome in fairy tales!

affectioknit said...

Wow! What a great giveaway! Thanks! LRRH is wicked just because she didn't bring enough goodies to share with the other critters on her way...

Alexa said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for thinking her grandmother looked like a wolf even for a second.

Whimsical Creations said...

She's wicked for not listening to Mom.

Little Red Riding Hood is a wicked little girl for not listening to her mom!

QuiltChick said...

She is wicked because she entices the poor wolf with treats in a basket....who can resist treats in a basket?

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

She's wicked for allowing the woodsman to kill the wolf! He should have been given to a rehab facility, or maybe she could have just given him a chicken dinner!

She's wicked because she disobeys society's norms and strikes out on her own.

Adriana said...

She was wicked for not wearing anything under that red hood!

sewfunky said...

I have always loved little red... wicked for talking to strangers!

Please enter me in the draw, and don't forget to enter mine. :)

Stephanie and Carlos said...

She could have spoke to the wolf nicely to see what he really wanted... he could have just been having a bad day really. Poor guy!! We're having a give away too.

xo Steph

Jenny said...

Breaking the rules to say, your pouch is wicked cute!

Three Dancing Magpies said...

Anyone who wears a bright red hood in the dark forest, wicked! Not as wicked as the wonderful coin purse!

Super Fun Mama said...

She's wicked for cutting through the forest instead of going the safe but longer way her mother told her to go.

The Shumate Family said...

it's all those goodies... she is teasing the wolf for sure.

Michelle said...

When I tell the story to my kids I give them a G version. I tell them that Little Red Riding Hood did not want to play with the Big Bad Wolf. Now that's wicked!

Sara said...

So darling!

Serena said...

Little Red Riding Hood is wicked for teasing the wolf. Don't tell me she didn't know it was him! And she showed so little concern for her dear old granny. I just know she was planning on eating that basketful of goodies herself and blaming all crimes on the wolf. You know, she might have been planning on running away and framing the wolf for that, too (leaving the hood and making it look like she'd died). I never realized how wicked she was before.

Kitty Boo Boo said...

Red is just wicked cool.

I love that chic ... it's just an analogy of the world.
We all get sent into the forest with a basket of our own goodies that our ma gave us ... we all meet big bad wolves ... we have been taken in at some stage by pretenders ... and then of course we ALL get freed from our mistakes by a big burly woodsman just happening by (giggle)

Emily said...

Dude, anyone wearing a red dress or cape is looking for trouble. It totally goes without saying!

Elizabeth said...

oh my, i love the whimsy of this fabric! beautifully m ade. hope i win!

A Joyful Chaos said...

Little Red Ridinghood was wicked because she wandered into the forest instead of hurrying to Grandmas house.

SarahVee said...

I'm sorry. The cute little purse has distracted me from the wickedness of the scenario. Wicked little purse:) Thanks for the chance to win and bring that cute little wicked purse to my house!!

queenoftheclick said...

Little Red was notoriously wicked. She dressed in a little red dress and wandered into the forest with her sweet pie. She tempted and teased the wolf instead of going off to granny's house. Then he ate her up. LOL!

Oh wait, what version of the story was that. :)

Now that purse is sweet and I need it because I am wicked.

JBalloon said...

Why is she wicked? 'Cause she wears red! and it's a cape! I want to dress like Red Riding Hood!

bluejeanne said...

Little Red isn't Wicked - not that way (she's wicked-awesome, at least depending on how you tell the story) - she is, however, awesome for being fearless in the face of the wolf.

thea_lamo said...

Once I read a story in the NYT about someone rewriting the story, so that phonetically it was similar to the original, but with words that meant nonsense:
Ladle Rat Rotten Hut:
Wants pawn term dare worsted ladle gull hoe lift wetter murder inner ladle cordage honor itch offer lodge, dock, florist. Disk ladle gull orphan worry Putty ladle rat cluck wetter ladle rat hut, an fur disk raisin pimple colder Ladle Rat Rotten Hut.

These words get stuck in my head often, and the story is therefore wicked!!

Carrie said...

i don't think she's wicked... she's just not too bright :)

Rie said...

That coin purse is adorable - you're a very clever lass!
That's it, I'm off to become your follower!
Cheers!

Kassia said...

Hmm... I guess she's wicked because she didn't share her treats. That little pouch is so cute!! :)

bethany said...

Little red riding hood was wicked because she wouldn't share her goodies with the wolf which cause her granmama to get eaten!!!

Beth said...

this is so cute! I have a weakness for pouches! little red riding hood is wiked for carrying a basket of fresh, yummy smelling muffins to gran's house thinking nothing was going to happen to her. How could she not expect the big bad wolfe to entice her!!

REread said...

wow that's a lot of comments!!! hope you get some Etsy sales form all the interest !!

Hey Harriet said...

Love that purse! Little Red Riding Hood has great fashion sense. I like her style :)

Lara said...

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! Little Red Riding Hood is not just wicked, she is WICKED AWESOME for wearing that super-hot cape! Seriously, they're coming back, people!! LOVE this little bag! Adorable!=

Ali said...

She's wearing RED, that says it all doesn't it? Plus, she's in the forest all by herself, very unwise and rebellious.

Jasmine said...

Wicked Red riding hood! She denied the wolf some sweet treats and her grandma paid for it with her life. Most definitely wicked!

Cherry said...

Little Red has a wicked sense of style. I would love a little red hoodie just like hers. I did a post last week about her!
http://bluebirdsandcherries.blogspot.com/2009/05/little-red-in-brown-dress.html
Gorgeous purse, thanks for the giveaway!

Miss Prickly said...

I love the image of Red, but the symbolism of the story is disturbing. Another cautionary tale to keep womenfolks in line!

Lil' Bit Sassy said...

Ohhh she teased that wolf!! Boy did she tease that wolf!

Mary said...

Cute! I love LRRH!
She is wicked because she didn't share any of her treats & ate them all herself!

ugli.tangelo.fruit at gmail dot com

Ilona said...

Little Red Riding Hood isn't wicked... her mom is! Who's sending her kid through some dangerous dark woods inhabited by wolves, only to bring some goodies to grandma? Didn't she have time herself, or didnt'she dare to?
LOL, loved reading all the comments :)

remarker said...

From the version I read as a child - she was wicked because after she got out of the wolf's tummy she clapped and cheered that the wolf was dead

RTichy said...

Why little red riding hood is wicked? She questioned who she thought was her grandmother about looking ugly basically after leaving home (with or without permission) and heading off into the woods? Who does that without thinking something bad is going to happenen?!?

Fun giveaway!

Amanda said...

Red is wicked because she lured that wolf with her naughty cape and coy answers. He just couldn't resist, I guess.

Ifallsmichelle said...

Thank you for the chance to win. She is wicked because she has a basket full of wickedly good food and drinks!
Leitinger4152@gmail.com

Ginny said...

She is wicked because she didn't know her "grandmother" was a wolf! WOW! Unless she was just stalling to think of a way to save her grandmother and get out! She could be a tricksie little girl!

Anyway, I love this fabric and the coin purse!
