Vera Bradley’s bags and accessories are gorgeous colorful creations. Her coloring books are just as fantastic—Win Your own set!
Adults have been losing themselves in coloring books for a while now. Vera Bradley’s two coloring books quilted bags and accessories are beloved by women of all ages. Vera Bradley Floral Patterns Coloring Book and Vera Bradley Paisley Patterns Coloring Book published by Fox Chapel Publishing, are a gorgeous way to spend time lost in their pages. Each book’s page has a design that comes straight from the brand’s spectacular quilted bags and accessories. Each book has a color section that contains a pattern guide, coloring techniques how-to, suggestions on what to do with your completed art, and a set of gift/thank you tags that you can affix wherever needed.
If you’re rusty with your coloring techniques, the guide is very handy. I loved pouring over the multi-colored pattern guide. Made me wish I had every bag with those patterns.
If you’re not aware of it, Vera Bradley was founded by two women, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia Miller, who started their business with only $500 in 1982. The long-time neighbors were traveling together. At the Atlanta airport, they noticed that there wasn’t any feminine-type luggage. The Fort Wayne, Indiana-based company creates everything from luggage to bags to scarves, jewelry, fragrances and more. Barbara recently spoke at the Women's Entrepreneurship Symposium, continuing the brand’s path of empowering women. The company also has a charitable arm, The Vera Bradley Foundation supports Breast Cancer Research at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories.
It had been a while since I used a coloring book. Armed with both pencils and colored markers, I perused the pages. I couldn’t decide which design to start with, so in the end I closed my eyes and picked a page. Once I started coloring away, I forgot everything else. Getting absorbed in the pattern. Choosing which color became my number one priority. Overall, it was an absorbing, very fun activity. The world stopped. Stress fell away. And the only thing I was concerned about was making something beautiful. I think if I didn’t have responsibilities, I would have colored away the entire weekend!
