    This bag is gorgeous!!..It would be the most awesome gift for anyone who lovingly makes gifts for everyone, for every occasion, but never has any time left-over to make anything for themselves. (..me..) I’m the only one in the family on both sides who sews..if I knew anyone else, of course I would heartily recommend them. :)

    This would be a great gift for a friend of mine, she just started sewing en she is kinda addicted to it. She also introduced me to the modCloth website, and is often talking about the nice things she sees on the website.

    I don’t think I’d be able to give it away as a gift. I LOVE this bag. The design is pure genius. And the opposite side looks like rows of pink measuring tape! So clever I can’t stop ogling it. It’s now on my Christmas wish list. Trendy, designer bags have never been my style. Sewing and creating one of a kind options for myself and others makes me so happy. Truly, this bag has me captivated.

    I think it would be perfect Christmas gift for me :) I see this bag as a part of me, because I like to carry around all the stuff with me, so my bag needs to be big and capacious, especially now when I attend the pattern making classes.

    Id give this bag for my husband as a hint that we need to take an overnight mini vacay away from the little one. Then Id make one for myself, matching perhaps, to replace the one my mother borrowed but the airport lost then destroyed.

    My oldest daughter. She learned to sew in college when she decided to major in textiles and merchandising. She got her masters, works in design for peanuts but loves it, and travels quite a bit for inspiration. It would be great if she had a cool bag to take with her on her travels.

    It would definitely do for me and probably my daughter. We love to take a bit of sewing with us when we go to the Gold Coast for weekends and everything would fit nicely in it. It really is a fun bag!!!

    I would love this bag for myself! I’m always tinkering with patterns and am teaching myself to make them so it would be an ideal reflection of the time I spend sewing and doing related activities.

    The Holding Pattern Overnight Bag would make a great gift for me because it matches my DIY jet-setting style. I’m the only person who sews among my friends, family and co-workers and I take several mini-trips each year in a small prop plane (just seats four people) and I have to keep my carry on items very light. The bag is beautiful and would make the perfect gift.

    I totally adore this bag! I’m a certified Pattern Junkie and it would be absolutely perfect to show it off with. If I weren’t giving it to myself as a present, I would give it to my friend who helped me first learn how to work a pattern :-).

    This bag would make a great gift for my sewing teacher. She is inspiring and has amazing taste. Also, she travels across the (albeit, small) country to give lessons and this bag would be a great way for her to carry her stuff. (She currently recycles old grocery bags!)

    Hope I could win this one so that I could give it to her as a gift. She definately deserves it more than anyone I know, and she’d really appreciate it. :)
