You could win a set of Bag-E-Bottoms by Lazy Girl Designs.

Totes and handbags are useful accessories, but sometimes they have difficulty holding your essentials because the bag bottoms aren't rigid enough. With Bag-E-Bottoms by Lazy Girl Designs, that is no longer a problem. Featured in the "New & Noteworthy" department of Threads Handbag special issue, Bag-E-Bottoms are custom acrylic bases made to be sewn into the bottoms of bags, and they come in a variety of sizes and proportions.

To celebrate the release of the Threads Handbags special issue, we are giving away a set of six different sizes of bag liners. These bases are perfect for use in the handbags you will learn how to make in this issue.

For a chance to win these useful bag supports, just leave a comment letting us know why you would like to win by 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 17. One lucky person will be randonly chosen to receive the set of six Bag-E-Bottoms.

LeeWells LeeWells writes: There are several bags in my closet that could use a firmer bottom. Some were purchased, some I made, they all sag! Bag-E-Bottoms sound like the ideal solution to the sagging.

Jan111 Jan111 writes: I made only one handbag EVER. I didn't like the saggy bottom and didn't know how to make the bottom sturdy so I never made another handbag. This miracle product would solve my saggy bottom (well the purse bottom). :) Thank you for the chance to win!

user-1109568 user-1109568 writes: While working and finishing my college degree I found there was little time for the pleasure of sewing, so tote-bags became my go-to project. That's when I discovered Bag-E-Bottoms. They're just the right thing for properly shaping a bag and taking away that 'homemade' look.
