    This bag would be an amazing gift for my mom, who travels at least once a month, or my friend Lisa, who travels several times a month. Of course, it would also be perfect for ME….

    It would have to be for my mother. She is the most amazing woman I know and she’s so fashionable. She was the one that encouraged me to keep sewing and it has been a blessing in my life.

    This would be great for my sister, Laura. She made her own wedding dress! She has to share luggage with her husband when they take short trips. Who wants to share luggage with a stinky boy? Not me!

    OHMYGOD, I love this bag and if I don’t win it I am putting on my Christmas wish list. So yeah, it would make a great gift for me. But if I had to choose someone else to receive it (and I might steal it back) it would be my friend Andreae. She’s a great sewer and has three kids, so she probably needs a big bag for toting around all their junk.

    I think that this bag would be an awesome gift for my sewing instructor Becca… she could probably make one herself, she is that talented, but it could save her a little time ;-)

    Oh well, quite selfish of me, but I should say ME; because I need something funny and useful just now…

    This bag would be great for my sewing mentor, Debbie. She’s been friends with my mom for years, and has recently been helping me with some more difficult sewing projects. It’d be a nice way to say thank you.

    This would make a great fit for ME! :) I’m planning to do a lot of traveling next year and this would be the perfect accessory!

    My dear friend Christina. She is a local fashion designer and my hope for the coming years is to travel to together to markets and fairs with her beautiful clothes. She would absolutely LOVE this bag!

    without hesitation, my great-aunt Mary. she’d LOVE it!

    her arthritis has kept her from being able to sew (my mom tells me she won contests with her winter coats). . . i wish i could have caught the sewing bug early enough to have learned from her.
