    This would make a great gift for my mom. She’s been a seamstress since she sewed her first dress (at seven years old) and she plans on traveling more this coming year. The bag is fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win this lovely bag.

    My mom and sister do numbers of projects that travel well, so I know they’d like it. But selfishly, I’d argue I’m more appropriate because I travel more, sew (vs knit), and have a day bag that’s about to die. Of course, I could just try and make my own…

    besides the obvious (me!), it would make a great gift for my friend Rita – she enjoys crafts and specifically sewing, she enjoys patterns of various form, and she loves self-referential humor.
