I am a huge sports fan, especially Major League Baseball (Go Cards!) and college hoops (go Michigan State!), and I love to show my team spirit whether it’s game season or not. My entire family are fans of the St. Louis Cardinals. My husband and his family are life-long fans of the Chicago Cubs (my favorite team’s rival.. and yes when the two match up it gets pretty interesting at our house), so when I had the chance to review the Game Day Purse from Tessuta, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it out and show my team spirit everywhere we went.
You know how when you go to a game, no matter what sport it is, you have a hard time finding a place for it? You can put it under your seat but then who knows what could happen, I always have to keep a close eye on it because the last thing I need is for anyone stealing my purse. I’ve spilt drinks on it, stepped on it and crushed the kids’ snacks, and more. Well, with Tessuta’s Game Day Purse, you don’t have to worry about any of that because it’s a three-pocket, grosgrain-ribbon bag worn over the shoulder, leaving your hands free to cheer your team on and store snacks and other necessities.
The Game Day Purse features your favorite team colors with a single logo; zipper front and magnet snap back pockets, nylon lining, and an adjustable strap. Measures 8.75 in x 7 in.
The purse is very soft. I really love this purse and the more I wear it the more I love it. It’s not a huge purse, which I like, because most of the time we have a diaper bag to carry as well. Don’t be fooled though, even though it’s not big and bulky, you can still hold quite a bit of stuff inside of it and in the pockets.
Tessuta makes products for almost 80 colleges, and the 2009 baseball season (which begins April 6, 2009). Bags, memo boards and bucket purses for all 30 Major League Baseball teams will be sold at ballparks across the country.
Along with the Game Day Purse I was sent a St. Louis Cardinals square pillow. Just as soft as the purse it makes a great napping pillow and when it’s not in use I use it for decoration on my husband’s favorite chair! (haha, I know I’m horrible, but we have fun with it).

Finally, there’s an accessory a(Game Dy/Game Night Purses) that girls and women alike can wear to the game and around town while supporting their home team. Started by a mom in Florida based on her passion for weaving (and her 2 sons’ passion for baseball), they’re now going to be sold at all major baseball parks in the country through their official license with Major League Baseball.
At Tessuta we delight in weaving new life into the art of weaving ribbons which began 800 years ago in the French village of St. Etienne. Over the years ribbon colors have signified memorable events. At Tessuta, we modernize this tradition by weaving our designs in the colors and symbols of your life. Our fabric of hand woven grosgrain ribbon is as textured and rich as the milestones and passions woven into your life.
