      Hi Julie,

      I filled out my survey wrong I said that I wanted the large tote but actually I wanted the medium messenger. Hope it's not too late to change?

      Fantastic that you reached your goal. So happy for you!

    4. Creator Julie Lewis on February 14, 2011

I love you all and thanks so very very much for your support!

      Julie, found you through boing2 and love the idea as well as the purse in the still picture. Pledged $100 and hope one of those bags is available for my daughter. Film unimportant, but Harry Potter would be a nice add if available. Good luck!

      Hi Van; A pledge of $100 will work to secure the Twilight bag. Thanks so much for your support! Cheers, Julie

      Hi Heather; Thanks for your interest! I would be happy to send you the messenger bag instead of the tote for a pledge of $130 ($100 for the pledge and $30 extra for shipping to UK)...thanks so much, Julie

    8. Creator Julie Lewis on February 13, 2011

      Hi Meaga; Thanks for your sweet comments and for your inquiry. A pledge of $100 will seal the deal on the bag on the home page. It is actually made from the Twilight movie (I hope you like ethat one! :)) Thanks again for your support! Cheers, Julie

    9. Creator Heather Ballard on February 13, 2011

      Hi there, I'm from the UK and would like the messenger bag rather than the tote. Is this possible? And how much extra would I pledge for shipping? These are amazing and your hard work is evident. Thanks, and well done.

      Hi Julie- I found your project on a link from Very excited about your project! I have the same question as Van below. What pledge amount should I choose for the style handbag in the display picture? I'm not a tote type, but can't wait to carry your genius idea on my shoulder.

    11. Creator Julie Lewis on February 13, 2011

      Hi Jean; There are only a few stores across the ocuntry that carry them at this point. Please send me your email address and I can send better photos of the bags directly to you. My email address is Thanks so much, Julie

    12. Creator Van on February 13, 2011

      Hi Julie, I think that the handbag you have in your display pic is beautiful (appears to be a small bag with teal coloured embroidery/sequins) How much should I pledge to be able to secure that bag?

    13. Creator Jean Cook on February 13, 2011

      Hi Julie, is there a gallery where I can see the different kinds of bags more clearly? Thanks.

    14. Creator Julie Lewis on February 12, 2011

      This message is for Stephanie Shindler...Thanks for your question. I got it in my email but it does not show up as a comment here with the others so I am just going to answer it here and hope you get it! Yes you can ask for the messenger bag instead of the large tote and get the same other gifts if you pledge $100. Thanks so much for visiting this website and for your interest! Please tell your family and friends as we are on the home stretch now and still have a ways to go...but I believe we can do it! Thanks again, Julie

    15. Creator Julie Lewis on February 12, 2011

      Hi Peter! I do have some bags made from the Twilight film and yes you can request that one with your donation for $100. It is just like the purse you see on my home page...if you read my updates you can see close-ups of that bag too. Thanks so much!!!! Please tell your friends too as time is running out and I must meet the goal to close the pledging! Have a wonderful day, Julie

    16. Creator Peter Schamerhorn on February 12, 2011

      Hi Julie,

      a) Is it possible to choose the movie, in my case Twilight?
      b) Do the regular size purses (if available) cost a larger donation than the large tote? (i.e. $100)

    17. Creator Julie Lewis on February 12, 2011

      Hi Vinnci;
      As I would have to ship the purse air it will bring the cost up.....And as that is one of my more expensive bags I would need you to pledge $200 for the bag and the shipping. I would also throw in a belt or a tie. Thanks so much for considering it..please keep your fingers crossed that we make the total! Have a wonderful day, Julie

    18. Creator Vincci on February 11, 2011

      Hey Julie,
      I'm interested in the size of the one you intentionally dropped in the video. Which pledge amount should I choose? BTW, I live in Hong Kong -- can you let me know how much more I should add for shipping?

    19. Creator Julie Lewis on January 15, 2011

      Thanks Jonathan! Please encourage your friends to participate as well! You can give them this link:…
      Thanks so much!! Julie

      This is awesome

    21. Creator Gerry Day on January 7, 2011

      Hey Julie-
      I gifted one of the large bags I got from you a while ago to an artist friend and she loves it. These make wonderful gifts. Best of luck with the project drive.

    22. Creator Duncan on January 5, 2011

      Hi Julie,
      sorted - have selected the $50 but actually pledged $65 to cover the postage.
      Nice one, hope this reaches the goal! Good Luck! :)

    23. Creator Julie Lewis on January 5, 2011

      Hi Duncan;
      Thanks for your note. I think a pledge in the $50 USD and one in the $15 should cover it. Thanks very, very much, and please share with your friends. Yours, Julie

    24. Creator Duncan on January 5, 2011

      Hey Julie,
      would you be prepared to post a woman's wallet to the UK, and how much extra would I need to pledge to cover the postage if you would please?
