    My mom would love this. She is getting back into sewing and travels frequently. I know she would use this for an overnight bag or for her sewing classes.

    It’s such a great bag! Other side is cool too. It would be so cool to come to the next craft fair with my work in it. It would suit the occasion perfectly. Although it would be a perfect gift for all women in my family and most women in general I think I would like to give it to my mother. No particular reason, just cause I love her.

    Oh, of course we’re all going to say ME!

    Or I suppose I would give it to my brother-in-law who sews and never asks for anything (so is therefore hard to shop for!)

    This would be a great gift for my dearest friend Michele Leeman van Steijnen, or for…. Ondergetekende :). We are both sewing teachers and each have our own sewing studio. The bag is just so cool for sewing addicts like the pair of us.

    I would love for someone to give me this as a gift! I don’t really have any friends or family who are as into sewing as me—my mom sews but this is really not her style.

    Let’s be honest, I’d hold onto this bag for myself! Unfortunately I don’t have any family and friends who love sewing as much as I do, but this would allow me to travel around to meet some people who do. Thanks for the opportunity.

    This gift would be for me because i love sewing but I know my kid would take this from me.

    Ohh she will Borrow it, then forget to bring it back.Then when i ask for it she wont be able to find it in her “bio hazzard” of a room or the condeemed closet. Then i will invite her out to dinner and she will be rocking my bag and tell ohh yeah you GAVE IT to me.

    I will get back years from now after she has taken another of my bags and she will hug me and say " hey mom you can have this back now i have a better one. Sigh

    Lie to me and tell they leave home………..soon

    This bag would make a great gift for me! As a brand new sewer, I could connect with other sewers who would notice the bag and strike up a conversation! It’s fabulous.

    Not to sound greedy, but of all my friends and family that bag would make the best gift for me. I love sewing and have even designed a few patterns myself. I must say though, that is the coolest bag I have seen in a very long time and would love to add it to my collection.

    This bag would be a great gift for my sister – always on the go and wearing out bags constantly. She likes them to be unique so she can easily identify them as hers! Of course, it would be a great gift for me too, since I am the seamstress in the family…
